Realized that TWD2 ep1 hasn't gone free before like the first season and the pass doesn't include ep1. So if the 50% is off the $15 and the first ep is still $5 (no point in a separate TWD sale this week), it'll still be over $10 unlike what I've done with TWA and TWD1 in the past. Not a big deal but something to consider for the true cheap gamer.

TWD2 episode 1 was on sale for 99 cents a few months back so hopefully people snatched it then. It'll likely go on sale again to that price as TellTale is pretty good at doing sales of their newer games fairly regularly or at least dropping the price on the first episode of a title.

 

It's funny how The Wolf Among Us has stolen the spotlight from The Walking Dead this year. Will be interesting to see what game winds up as GOTY at the end of 2014 for most publications as I expect it to be an indie title.

 

The problem with buying ACIV is that Ubisoft discounts that series and their titles regularly even at the retailer. So within a year or so they often get down to $20. I'm still making my way through AC Brotherhood (have to admit I have put 13 hours or so into ACIII as I got bored of the European setting) so I'm in no rush to get to AC IV. Once the new AC game for the last gen comes out ACIV will be marked down to under $20 anyways and easy to get for cheaper used. Unless you're a massive fan I'd hold off.

Fuck this sale and the past weeks.

 

Citadel ME3 is never going a part of a sale at this rate.  :wall:

 

have they ever had an all bioware themed sale?

Sorry to be a total prick but you do realize that ME3 Citadel was on sale back at the end of January back for 50% off. It was an instant trigger pull for me, though I haven't played it yet.

 

The likelihood of it going on sale again any time soon is going to be very very slim. They've had various ME and Dragon Age sales in the past but it's been a long time since we've seen a ME one as they don't often go on sale as you mentioned.

freefall racers is $2.49 but it's been on sale multiple times for 99 cents so I assume if you've wanted it you have it. for a buck it was worth the novelty for $2.49 I'd say pass unless you are just trying to expand your backlog by any means necessary. 

It wasn't even worth it for 99 cents. My six year old nephew and I played it for about 1 minute before he told me he never wanted to ever play that horrid game again. A total skip IMHO

Child of Light is showing up as $10.04 for Gold in list, but not on the actual page for the game.  I don't recall seeing that one before.

If that's true then it's a pretty good price on essentially one of the better rated and newer games in a good while. The only thing that's holding me back from pulling the trigger is that it's a Ubisoft game and they go on sale constantly, will likely wait til at least 50-75% off.

Oh good. Twenty percent is an odd drop on such an old game. Course gives me hope that other older games may get some drops like backgammon...

Balderdash!
