    I bought the Never Alone bundle, Fragments of Him and the Escapists DLC.

    They look like pretty easy completions, and since I got The Escapists for free through GWG, I feel no problem giving back a little bit.

    I wish they would fix Darksiders II so bad. I'd buy the One version in a heartbeat.

    Never Alone is a steal at that price. Easy completion and it's actually really, really good.

    Recommend Never Alone. A beautiful game, even with the sometimes less than perfect controls.

    I've played The Technomancer on both Pc and PS4 and I love it. The game is kind of short and combat can be challenging but overall the game was a great RPG that should have gotten more love than it did at release.

    If I buy the Taken King expansion in this week's sales, does it contain the base game or is it just the DLC? Can anyone confirm?

    I got several of these (including trading RE4 & RE5 back to Gamestop to get enough credit to buy all three digitally)...

    BUT, I'm gonna wait on Superhot and The Escapists DLC until closer to the end of the sale, to see how the countdown is going.

    This one does not contain the base game. In fact the base game is now only available digitally as part of a full collection including all the DLC (including Rise of Iron) so it's probably not worth getting the Taken King on its own.

    Any opinions on superhot? No way I was even thinking of paying £20 for it

    It's funny how different people have different opinions. Never Alone was one of the worst games I have ever endured. I was also not a big fan of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. I am generally pretty easy-going and enjoy most games I play. Those were probably among the worst I have played with Never Alone topping the chart. I could probably count the games I have played that I disliked on my two hands.
