You’re both right! This is exactly the kind of thing I would spend a buck on and then let it languish, unplayed, in whatever weird kind of video game bucket list I’m accumulating. Or, it would anyway, if I hadn’t apparently … already bought this at some point in the past.

$9.99 at Amazon currently.


#2129

This is the same as the Black Friday deals, right. A PS4 Slim for $199.


#2130

BTW, did they ever resolve whatever that issue with MGS V: The Phantom Pain was where it depended on some online thing with regard to your bases (obviously I only have the vaguest of notions of what the issue was based on what I heard people saying on podcasts)?


#2131

They did have some launch issues way back, but it’s all pretty smooth these days. Accessing the mother-base management features in iDroid while in the field used to be slow, but it’s much quicker now. Possibly because server traffic is much lower. ;)

Guys. Guys. Titanfall 2 $9.99 on Origin!

https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/titanfall/titanfall-2/standard-edition

Sure, other stuff is on sale on Origin as well, but Titanfall 2!

Fanatical has Middle Earth : Shadow of War for $32.39 (48% off) for a limited time when you use coupon code BLACKFRIDAY10 in your cart.

Star Deal today on Fanatical is LEGO Hobbit Complete Pack for $4.99 (80%). Contains all the DLC.

Humble Store has Brutal Legend FREE for a limited time.
They’re also still running their Humble Fall Sale featuring hundreds of games with decent discounts, especially for Monthly subscribers.

IndieGala has a new Monday Motivation Bundle live. $2.49 for 11 indie Steam games.

Not a lot of new deals on Steam today, which likely points to a Fall Sale coming later this week.

So I keep hearing Plants vs. Zombies GARDEN WARFARE 2 is great, and it’s on sale right now.

https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/plants-vs-zombies/plants-vs-zombies-garden-warfare-2/frosty-deluxe-edition

And enablers around?


#2135

I didn’t know that actually cost money, thought it was f2p. I haven’t played it in forever, and I don’t think it’s nearly as good as the first PvZ, but it’s a fun little game.

Edit: oh, Garden Warfare 2! Never mind.


#2136

@tomchick is your huckleberry.


#2137

He means Garden Warfare 2. Everyone calls it the wrong thing. As does Tom in that review.


#2138

Well that review looks great. Is it fun for the solo player? It sounds like it is.


#2139

I liked it. There’s around 8 hours of goofy campaign stuff, and you can team up with bots for most of the multiplayer modes.


#2140

I recall trying GW2 (Garden Warfare 2) on PC earlier this year, the player base is just about gone, sadly.


#2142

Objection! Point of order, misleading the court. “GW2” stands for “Guild Wars 2”.


#2143

:P

Nope, I would never subject someone to the real GW2.


#2144

Looks like there is a 10 hour demo to try it out.


Plants vs Zombies 2 isn't just a great game; it's a long overdue revolution
#2145

I see that many are using “SC2” when talking about some irrelevant RTS and not Star Control 2. This should be a banable offense.


#2146

Soulcalibur II isn’t an RTS…

(And if you think that’s bad, just remember that a stray “AC” could mean Animal Crossing, Armored Core, Ace Combat, Assassin’s Creed, “arcade,” or “air conditioner.”)


#2147

Don’t forget Asheron’s Call. :)
