Mafia III Deluxe Edition looks like a good deal. Not only does it include the Faster, Baby! for Mafia III DLC as stated but the entire season pass--a 29.99 USD value. In other words, the discounted deluxe version is being sold for the price of a season pass plus a penny.

Is mafia 3 worth it for that price? It got pretty slaughtered by reviews at launch

I think Mafia III is a great game. It went through a period where about half a dozen achievements were glitched and, from my perspective, that's the biggest con of the game. It's got a great story and the soundtrack is phenomenal. There are some great collectibles but, unlike most games of the type, there are no achievements related to picking them up. So you are free to pick them up or ignore them as you see fit.

Bottom Line is 30 USD for the Deluxe Edition is a great bargain.

So Rise of the Tomb Raider is $20, and the season pass is $7.50. The 20 year celebration is $35 and has the same stuff as the season pass with the base game included? That's a $7.50 difference. Am I missing something?
You're missing nothing.
Thanks for the confirmation. Separate purchases it is then!
In Australian dollars the price difference is even more extreme. $70 for the 20 year Edition, or $25 + $10 for the Base Game + Season Pass. $35 difference. Go figure!

Powerstar Golf full game unlock is also on sale ;) I'm tempted on it, as well as In Between.

Some day Gears 4 and ReCore will drop brow the $30 and $20 price points respectively, and on that day I will buy them.

I think $5/£4 is a good price for the NASCAR Forza Motorsport 6 Exp.

So you guys think that if i buy the Ori and te blind forest bundle i get to own and download both versions of the game? Does that mean i have two "different" games to complete? That would be so cool considering the discounted prize!

Is Sheltered a finished game now? Been keeping my eye on it, but it was in early access at first.
Sheltered is a finished game, it is out of preview and is completed
Awesome, thanks!

Just for people who are unaware also ori definitive edition is free right now if you own the original until the 22nd if you never did the $5 upgrade
Not for me it isn't.

Just seen you said until 22nd...even though you posted 2am on the 23rd. Lol
Most people are like slinkies... not really good for anything, but if you push them down the stairs it brings a smile to your face!

Yes, you'll get two seperate lists (two games).
