Hasn't Mirror's Edge been out quite a while now? It's not like it came out a few months ago.

if you live in a area with a good library, check your library, when i visited mine 2 days ago, they had at least 7 copies of sherlock holmes on the shelve, we can borrow for 3 weeks at a time with 2 extra 3 week renewals if no one wants it, all at no cost.
Your library has video games that can be checked out? That is awesome.

Came out May 2016, dropped price pretty quickly soon after. It was about $8-10 USD during the Winter sale

I don't think it is included in this sale, but White Night is on sale for under $5. Pretty good game, though it does have a couple achievements that have to be completed on a particular night.

Interested in King's Quest and Sherlock Holmes, but I am betting they will go on steeper sales later this year, hopefully when my backlog isn't quite so big....

Is this the best price we've had for King's Quest?

I wonder if WRC5 is fun.
It's the "esports edition" (!?) and it includes all the DLC for just the DLC price. I wanted to get the disc version but would need to also buy the DLC so this seems reasonable.

But online is dead if anyone wants to play I may get it.
Also don't download the DLC when starting because of some glitch. Download it after getting 2 achievements.

$5 for Mirror's Edge is a great bargain. If I didn't already pick it up I would be jumping at that, but not much else here interests me
My sentiment exactly. I picked up Mirror's Edge for about $8, still a good deal to me.

Stranger of Sword City, Mirror's Edge and Blue Rider..because it's $3. Not a bad sale, Sword City looked like a nice nostalgia game

I highly recommend King's Quest, especially at this price clap

Is Stranger of Sword City worth it for $10? I know the One is RPG starved and I grew up on dungeon crawlers so I'm not sure if it'll be worth it or not.

Zombie Driver is an absolute blast - solid gameplay and achievements were really fun to get. Highly recommend, even though it is outside of my normal genre interests.

The first episode of King's Quest is free (1000G), so definitely give it a try. The first episode was my favorite as some of the subsequent episodes have different gameplay mechanics, but the warm, snarky wit is consistent throughout the game and overall is a great tribute to its predecessors. If you have any interest in adventure games you should definitely pick it up at some point; it has been severely overlooked and underappreciated. Bonus: the "Inconceivable!" guy from Princess Bride is in it and adds some great voicework.

any of these would be a waste since they will most likely be apart of the pass soon enough.

EA Access for Mirror's edge so definitely not wasting money on that one despite others commenting how cheap it is. Got a year of access on ebay for £11

I think so, but this is not the first time. The game has been in my backlog for awhile now and I finally started playing it the other day, but I bought it the last time it was on sale. Same price as now.

If you like point-and-click games, definitely recommended.
