    Destroy All Humans looks fun. Any opinions on its value for the sale price? Sometimes games like these look like a blast but feel tedious

    At that price I would say you would get value, enjoyable game.

    If anything, it's Book of Unwritten Tales II, and maybe the Rock 'n Racing Bundle. But probably just the Book.

    The game is fun and silly. Not as good as the first Destroy All Humans, though. They need a new DAH and Stubbs the Zombie for XB1....

    I wonder how Claire is?
    Here is a review on the games page. I think I'm going to give it a go. For that price, I may as well.

    For some reason when trying to buy Sniper: ghost warrior 2 my only options are to rate it or pin it. Does that mean it's not available in New Zealand or some shit?
    Correct. New Zealand games are a subset of Australia games which are a subset of Europe games which are a subset of US games. Mostly because the publishers can't be arsed to get it rated for the smaller markets.
    Or it's a pain in the butt to modify the game to get released in those specific countries. Ever play the German version of The Darkness? Pretty stupid watching the Darkness eat nothing after 'pushing' a guy in his chest. That was a couple of weeks of extra testing and coding to remove things for one specific country.

    Avoid the Rock 'n Racing bundle. They look like fun throwbacks but they are awful.

    Thank you matdan & Lyzyrd for your opinions. I believe I shall purchase it to save to try when I have less backlog.

    I noticed Xcom 2 and Steep have 30% off for the next 15 days
    It's more than just a game, it's a passion.

    Chewie, are you implying that Farming Simulator isn't good? I'll bet you'll be first in line when LucasArts releases Star Wars: Moisture Farming Simulator.

    It's a decent enough game but by the time you're trying to clean up all of the collectibles you just want the damn thing to be over with. Very much outstays its welcome at that point. If that doesn't bother you it's damn worth the price. I paid $5 for it and felt I got my moneys worth so, ya know, well worth it.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

    Penarium is pretty fun for 6-7 hours, if you can get past the glitch that kicks you back to the title screen 10 minutes after you start the game (it occurs once per game session, so after dealing with the glitch it doesn't happen again unless you close the game).

    Exactly how I felt about the game, its worth the price just gets kinda tedious towards the end of collecting but nothing hard
