Bargain Thread 2021

They’re really worth it though.

58.92 for the whole bundle currently.
I’m going to take a pass on that.

And then there is Sanctus Reach and Battlesector.

There just is too much Warhammer 40k out there, as odd as that might seem.

No it’s not odd, there’s a ton, but the games you mentioned are some of the best.

Xbox Live Gold 12 months on sale for ~$50 at Newegg ( $59.99 + $10.50 off w/ promo code SSAY2523) for the next 14 hours only.

(this gets you set up to convert XBL Gold to MS Game Pass for less than $5/month, a crazy good value)

Newegg has that deal at least once per month but yeah, that’s the way to do it.

Monster Train is on “limited stock super sale” for $6.23. I think these things go pretty quick so get it while it’s hot.

Says $12.50 for me. Looks interesting, though.

Yep,.me too, now. AllYouPlay deals always move fast.

I warezed it, back in the day (shameful blush)

and I was one of the few Amiga owners I knew of that actually bought software occasionally

Monster Train is 60% off at Steam bringing the price down to $9.99.

Betting that it has been discounted more elsewhere I picked up Wildermyth at 25% off on Steam. Tom’s inclusion of it as a best game of 2021 so far got my attention. This especially, “the real secret of Wildermyth is that it tells stories every bit as memorable as whatever epic arcs I’ve spent so long playing that I don’t even remember where they all started. Is it still an arc if you can’t remember the beginning?”

That last bit is me and every CRPG that I have started which is why I don’t buy them anymore.

Good reminder , here are Tom’s mid year top ten:

10 -Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
Galactic Mining Corp
HuniPop 2: Double Date
A-Train: All Aboard! Tourism
Imagine Earth
Necromunda: Hired Gun
Hitman III
Wildermyth
Outriders
1- Slipways

Why is Galactic Mining Corp not on sale!

Did you always want a copy of the Kickstarter version of 7th Continent but could never get your hands on one? Now’s your chance! Black Friday sale!

For those who aren’t monitoring the Switch thread, the e-shop has a ton of great deals right now. For example the Lego games are 85% off.

Game Stop also has first. party Nintendo games on sale as physical carts. Many at lowest price ever.

Game Stop also has first party Nintendo games on sale as digital downloads. Many at lowest price ever.

I personally bought Super Mario Bros Deluxe U, Kirby allies and Astral Chain codes for $27 each, for instance. The default on those was the used cart for those prices, but if you go change it to digital, it’s the same price for the code, which is so much more convenient. (But can’t be lent out/ re-sold/borrowed, of course).

Golf Story just went 50% off on the American eShop. A never before seen deal for the best Switch golf game!

And Arms is still not on sale. That game will never go on sale! And I’ll never buy it! Because I can be just as stubborn as Nintendo. (OK, not really, I’m weak).

Thanks for the heads up. Apparently I paid for it using Nintendo gold points, 699 of them? I had no idea that was possible. Their e-shop seems to heavily push towards spending it on useless cosmetics, so I thought that’s what they were for. I didn’t know they could be used to buy games!

Golf Story for free. Enjoy, I love that game.

Golf Story is SO much fun. Great novel use of the switch’s controller vibration too - it’s used to emphasize dialog! Really fun and effective.
