I really want cod4 remastered but am wondering if that price will drop in the future. Also seems like a good time to get rocket league....

Guys help me out here. Is the WRC franchise worth it, even for cheap? The reviews are middle of the road - although the Dirt guys are obviously passionate. I'm a Dirt lover.

Options:
1. get WRC 5 cause it's only $10
2. get WRC 6 cause it's only $5 more at $15 (but a newer version)
3. wait for Dirt Rally or Dirt 4 to go on sale (might not happen anytime soon)
4. $ave it and keep racing the backlog - I think I still have some Burnout, Need for Speed, Crew, Grid & Project titles still to get through.

I'm probably the only one to say: "I've been waiting on The Dwarves to drop in price." Boom. My purchase of the week.

Also tempted by Tony Hawk 5. Thoughts?

Someone just asked me an interesting question.

If he gameshares and buys the FIFA 18 Icon edition, how does it allocate the bonus packs, or are separate codes for each 'item' supplied.

I am sure Dirt 4 was 40% off just two weeks before. And dirt rally is part of game pass that you can play right now if you get the 14day trail. Wrc7 seems to be better than 5 and 6. The site review was favourable. Haven played any game in wrc series myself

i really enjoyed the Ultimate Alliance games back in the day and wouldn't mind another dip into them but refuse to pay more than $20 for both of them as they are simply ports rather than remasters

Don't know if I missed it before or if it's new but 'manage price alerts'?
As in I can select an item and be alerted when its price drops? Sounds useful but can't seem to find how to do it.
I just add them to my wish list and if they are on the list I get a message.

... but 40% off $79 Dirt4 (ridiculous) is a lot different than 80% off $49 WRC 5. I was hoping Dirt Rally was going to drop significantly since it is the older title and probably had less hardcore fans. GwG IS my "game pass." I'm not buying into anything else, and there's no way I can finish a game in 14 days. I just bloody revisited FM4 last week! WRC 7 will be another $80 launch, not worthy for another 2 years. I'm living for the now ... I mean ... 2 years ago.

I also have a ton of racers in my backlog, so do as I say and not as I do. Finish that old shit while you can. Servers closing all the time.

ME Andromeda for $20 is tempting.

I recommend WRC 5; for $10 I don't think you would regret it.

Second this, had a buy two get one free coupon from EB Games and picked it up because I wanted a rally fix that didn't involve Dirt Rally...and Dirt 4 wasn't out at the time. Great way to get your rally fix without a serious time commitment.

Little acre and Dwarves for me. Also maybe Duck Dynasty because it’s 80% off and I don’t see it going cheaper.

I thought Hue was a pretty fun little game and a relatively easy completion. I also didn't mind Dear Esther, although a lot of people don't really like it. At the very least it is quick and easy gamerscore with a good guide here on TA.

Ugh. More ID games that I've bought at 50% off going cheaper before I get around to playing them.
Easy fix. Only buy a game you're going to play soon. That way you can just wait for the next sale if you aren't going to play it until 2019.

I don't understand why so many people have issues with this. Okay maybe it's something you want and the sale sounds really good but if you're gonna back log it for a year or so why not just wait till you shrink your backlog?
Because there's no guarantee it'll be on sale again, and if it is, it may not be on sale when you come around to wanting to play it, whenever in the future that is (1, 2, n months/years).
