Bargain Thread 2019

What’s hard about Limbo (and currently Inside, in which I got stuck), is figuring out exactly what to do. I don’t recall having too much trouble once I figured out the puzzle. Even though the solution is usually pushing or pulling or going left and right or jumping, it’s still a matter not trying the wrong, obvious solution over and over again and getting yourself killed.

Like the spot where I’m stuck now in Inside, I don’t know what the actual solution is, so I keep trying the same thing over and over and dying.

That’s pretty much the opposite of an interesting time to me and why I haven’t finished it. And being worse than @moss_icon doesn’t help.

I mean, the only reason we’re trying the wrong solution over and over and dying is because we’re trying to figure out the right solution. Not because we suck.

It’s a puzzle, not a platforming technical hurdle.

I may have used a walk-through.

No one should be encouraged to buy Grey Goo. ;)
Old Man’s Journey @ $1.51 is a good game, so get that. :P

Great price for “Middle of War: Earth Shadow: Batman Mordor Knight 2” ;-)

Did I remember it right? :D

I can’t find the thread to confirm it! ;)

Actually I remembered it right except that the thread title is missing the second colon and instead has an “aka” in its place.

BTW, I’m truly tempted by Wreckfest at $15.80.

Steam is also running a KOEI TECMO Dynasty Warriors Franchise Sale with up to 75% off titles.

To celebrate PDXCOM Weekend, Steam also has Paradox Titles On Sale. The usual mix and discounts, including DLC. Check prices elsewhere before purchasing, as some games may be slightly cheaper on other sites. Also check the bundled collections, as Steam Bundle Magic may be in effect on some, providing you an extra discount off DLC even if you own he base game and some DLC already.

I wonder whether I’d ever have the patience to play Distant Worlds Universe for more than 30 minutes. Plus I hear the interface is hard to read at higher resolutions.

Humble also has a Deus Ex Franchise Sale happening. Good prices on individual games and DLC, or grab everything Deus Ex in the Deus Ex Collection for $23.74 (75%). Monthly subs get an additional 8% off here too.

Happy weekend gaming everyone!

GRIP: Combat Racing has a free weekend and $12 sale.

TWW2: Curse of the Vampire Coast is $9.5, new lowest.

Very possibly bogus, very early Walmart black friday leak. $200 switch is a tasty meatball!

Would they lower the regular model having just released the Switch Lite? I don’t think so.

I can see maybe $249. Probably more like $279 with a $20 gift card or game thrown in, and maybe $179 for the Lite if it even sees sales so close to release. Possibly just buy the system, get a free game type of deals.

Still, does make my mouth water.

I’d be almost required to get my daughter a Switch Lite if it was really that cheap.

Yeah. There’s a whole smorgasbord of tasty meatballs comin’ if that ad is accurate.

Is an Xbox One S a good device to have as a Blu Ray Player?

The one in that ad is the all digital edition and has no disc drive, so no. But in general, it’s fine.

I could see the switch going that low. I have a deal alert set up and I’ve been seeing $270 (Amazon this week after GC) and even $250 from the rakuten-level sellers right now. And yes, it’s version 2.
