Bargain Thread 2018



Couples Games are not a huge hit for me or anyone I know but in case some of you out there like it this sounds kind of intersting.


Fallout fans have acted so entitled ever since Fallout 2 was released. They expect to get a good game just because they spent $60. It’s shameful.

FO76 art and level design looks okay though.


I’ve actually been curious about this one for a long time - reviews were excellent. Thanks for the heads up.


I think it’s interesting that both the male/male and female/female covers have the two figures interacting in a romantic way, but the female/male cover has the two characters standing in a pretty stereotypical “adventure” pose, not even looking towards each other.


I don’t think i even noticed the cover options. It is a little weird they have multiple covers like that in the first place.


I watched the SUSD video and the design looks fascinating. Definitely unique!


My wife just shows me the listing on Amazon a few days ago. Worth checking out on sale! Thanks!


Did anybody post that Full Throttle Remastered is free today?


The price for FTR was held unusually high for too long. The game isn’t anywhere near of a classic as Grim and DOTT were, and it seems like it didn’t do too well.


LEGO Hobbit free on Humble Bundle too:


I got a first world problem: I have too many free games I have no time to play.


Cite please?


Steamspy and number of reviews on steam are good indicators. Price analysis is my own observation over time compared to DOTT.


I just meant your assessment of Full Throttle as a classic. It seems to me that Full Throttle was much more well-received and better considered at time of release than was Grim Fandango, which seemed to find greater critical and consumer plaudits later.


Oh. That’s just my personal assessment thrown in the mix :) I consider DOTT the greatest adventure game made, and Grim’s style and epic feel was amazing. FT was… kinda cool? Very short, with very few puzzles.

The FT remaster is also lacking: some of the hi-res art looks great, while other parts look like they’re just a hi-res filter of the original art. It’s pretty clear they were running low on Disney funds while doing the remaster for them.


Subnautica is currently free on the Epic Games Store!


Wow, not only is this yet another client to merely download and launch games: it is one that doesn’t work on a OS X 10.11 (It’s 3 years old, who still uses that?!). Nice going, Epic.


Well, Apple…
