I'm a little tempted by Chaos Reborn, but I saw 1 review mention that there's not much to the singleplayer and you need to play multiplayer to really enjoy it.

Eh, it' in the dollar tier. If the single player is even an hour or two long it'd be worth that. 
I'll wait until the other two games are revealed before deciding on this one, but before this goes away I'll be grabbing at least the dollar tier. 

Since I already own half the revealed games in the second tier (and Mafia 3), anything else being worthwhile really hinges on whatever those two games are.

It's not bad.  But I own most of it that I would want and only have marginal interest in Epistory and Chaos Reborn.  I don't expect the unlocks to be anything great.

 

If anyone is on the fence for Mafia 3 I would steer them away from it.  I got bored after a few hours.  I might pick it up later but, imo, the Mafia series has always been the weakest of the GTA clones as far as gameplay.

If anyone is looking for Mafia 3, they probably should also make sure to either go Deluxe from the get-go and/or make sure at some point they get the Season Pass dirt-cheap.

 

M3 Season Pass has been $4 on Fanatical before - https://isthereanyde...easonpass/info/

 

The presentation; and both story & character development is excellent in M3, IMHO.

 

The game can be repetitive...and the Season Pass really helps mix things up w/ different mission types - i.e. Faster Baby DLC has vehicular combat missions; those are a blast.

Here you go, suckers.

 

EDIT: People in reddit have been getting two copies of the same game in the 10 game bundle.  Yikes.

wow that looks like a boatload of crap ... I already have AoD, and the only other game that is vaguely interesting is COD MW3. Almost as disappointing as the Colossal bundle :|

Nothing says "Bundle event of the year" quite like a predatory mystery collection of fodder.

I'm honestly amazed that anyone still believes the Fanatical hype when their bundle events roll around.

I'm waiting for the Killer Bundle myself...usually is shown near the end, if there is one this time. The rest of the stuff I rarely if ever buy. I hate mystery keys and wont touch that with a 10 foot pole.

Mystery bundles are just the game store equivalent of loot boxes but with even less of a gambling high.

Not sure if Fanatical ever telegraphed from the start that they'd have limited keys for some of the games in the Colossus Bundle, but Tier 3 (Mafia 3, Civ BE) was dropped entirely this morning and the mystery games in Tier 2 (Ash of Gods, Invisigun Heroes) have been revealed.

That's obnoxious.

That sucks for people that were looking at T3.

 

Luckily I wasn't really interested in T3 and with the addition of Ash of Gods, I might end up getting it... if more games aren't removed before I get around to it that is.

 

EDIT:

At least it was the whole tier that got removed, and it wasn't like Humble when they have limited games in their big $30 bundles.  Where a game or two get removed but the price doesn't change so all you get is less games if you bought it later.

The new Lego Pick n Mix bundle is pretty good. I was missing Ninjago, Lego Worlds, and Lego City Undercover. Might wanna check your emails to see if you got a 20% off coupon for subbing. I had one on my alt account, so I grabbed that and the Colossus bundle. Sucks that the tier was removed, but I guess it's not a big loss.

 

Oh and if you don't have a 20% off coupon and want to buy both of those bundles anyway, make sure you buy the Colossus one first because you currently get a 10% off coupon for making a purchase but it has a $5 minimum. You can buy Colossus and use the coupon you receive on the Lego bundle.

Yeah, this one added several that weren't in the previous Lego ones- I grabbed Lego Marvel Superheroes 2, it's Season Pass and Lego City Undercover. 

Now to wait another year for them to add Lego Incredibles, Lego DC Supervillians and Lego Movie 2.

Give it a few months and they'll run these 3 for $9.99. You wait and see.

Looking at isthereanydeal, it seems they did run at 3 for $9.99 in 2016 and 2017, but 3 for $11.99 in 2018 and now this one. It also looks like they've only run a pick and mix with the Lego games about once per year.

Grabbed the LEGO bundle - wanted to get LEGO City on PC anyway, and for $12, I got that, LEGO Marvel Superheroes, and Force Awakens. Not a bad deal at all.

Did anyone pick LEGO Worlds?
If so, is there the slightest chance it came with the soundtrack/Early Access DLC when redeemed on Steam?

Thanks. Bought it and you were 100% right. Guess they're sitting on a ton of these.

I snagged the 2 lego titles I didn't already have (TFO, Season Pass, and Ninjago Movie). I also bit on the Mystery bundle. It was mostly shite, as suspected. But buying the mystery bundle netted me a 10% off coupon, which I turned around to use on the Lego bundle, which netted me another 10% coupon, which I might end up using again later this week, if they come out with a decent bundle....
