    All of that extra work doesn't save anyone $2.24. Please stay salty though if it creates these entertaining comments
    Well, your highness, forgive me for having an opinion and trying to steer people away from a game that was nothing more than a ripoff of superior source material. Some of us care about that kind of thing and have the ethical fortitude to NOT support plagiarists. If, before I bought Oh Sir, anyone had outlined what I did in my comment above, I would have never made the purchase. My money should have gone to the talented people who wrote the overwhelming majority of the game's dialog.

    But, by all means, stay salty at people who think differently than you.

    One more thing: if you can't enjoy those Monty Python clips, you probably shouldn't play Oh Sir. Those sketches contain lines that were stolen - verbatim - by the game's devs.

    Why I don't see a lot of prices on this page and I see none on the other one?

    Not a bad sale. This week the 360 sale is better, interestingly. However, the deal on the Battlefield 1 DLC is pretty solid if you're into that game. If I had the money, I'd jump on it.

    Now, go watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Monty Python's Life of Brian, and Monty Python's Meaning of Life.

    You will have now seen everything (almost ver-frickin'-batim) that you'll find in Oh Sir. In my opinion, that game is a sick work of plagiarism and the Pythons should have 90% of the writing credits. It's one of only two games I rated 0.5/5 stars because of how much it blatantly steals from writers who had more creativity in a single bowel movement than the team who cobbled together this steaming bowel movement of a game.
    That doesn't give me 1k GS though

    Been waiting on watch dogs dlc to go on sale since it was free and it finally does.... but on the 360
    Ubisoft does this a lot. Since devs couldn't bundle on the 360 (IE Complete/Deluxe/Premium editions), season pass sales are the only way to get some extra buyers. On the One, they're content to screw over original buyers and just constantly put the bundles on sale.

    Well AC is my favorite series, and I haven’t picked up Orgins yet.. so I think I’ll pull the trigger on that during this sale.

    Ah, that's annoying, there's a few I'd be tempted to get, can't be bothered to go through the process of changing my region marketplace though, so I'm happy to just wait!
    Thank you :)

    Monty Python is pretty lame anyway.

    Are some of these not active in some places yet? Hardly any prices unless selecting Australia...

    EDIT - Looks like it's intentional if reading some comments above. Shame.
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    Two thirds off Three Fourths Home laugh

    Anyway, bought, as I'm on a story driven game binge having recently beat Firewatch, Abzu, Inside, Dear Esther and soon LiS: Before the Storm. Slowly (at walking sim speed) turning out to be my favourite genre.

    Just Cause 3 XL looks pretty good; can't see the discount on UK marketplace though.

    I can't see a lot of these discounts on the UK store. The 2K and Ubisoft ones all seem missing.

    Edit: also worth noting most pinball fx3 tables are on sale for anyone else who enjoys that game.
