If you don't like WayForward games, why would you keep buying them 🤨

And seems pretty harsh, their games usually range from average to good. DuckTales Remastered gave me more enjoyment than most AAAs and I got it for like $3


Original Shantae was almost unplayable due to the oversized sprites in a tiny resolution. I liked Risky’s Revenge okay. Pirate’s Curse was a decent followup that had better gameplay, but the cracks in the writing were starting to show. Half Genie Hero was a mess with poor level design, insipid transformations, tired writing, and inconsistent challenge. I wouldn’t pay more than a dollar for original Shantae or Risky’s Revenge in a bundle, and original only for it being a historical curiosity. I wouldn’t pay anything for Half Genie Hero in or out of a bundle because, as I mentioned, that was just a bad game. I’d say Pirate’s Curse is worth more than dollar in a bundle, but only if you haven’t already played Risky’s Revenge, because as mentioned above, the writing was definitely starting to wear thin—they make a lot of the same jokes, and a lot of the style that’s kind of charming the first time around gets old with repeated exposure.

For the record, the initial statement of value is specifically within the context of bundles, especially Fanatical build-a-bundles. Like, I don’t feel particularly ripped off having paid full price on Pirate’s Curse when it first came out on 3DS, those value judgements are made with the assumption that someone ‘s been sufficiently on the fence that he waited this long to get the games in a bundle.

It's because people put a premium on animu.

WayForward really isn’t all that animu, it’s more in line with early 00s western cartoons. Which to be fair were kinda anime-inspired, but were also very distinctly doing their own thing.

I got an email for CASTLEVANIA ADVANCE for 10.99 and it’s not not the website. When I click the link it says not available in there United States. Why would they even send me the email?

Lots of decent deals. King's Bounty, Tropico games, and Deep Sky Derelicts (very cheap and a decent game with all the DLC) are all quite good for a dollar. I think I may be missing Tropico 4 DLC, so may as well get it for a dollar.

All great deals.  Perhaps not as low as the $0.60 per game you can get in the bargain basement bundles but these all come with DLC so it balances out.  Will probably grab Deep Sky Derelicts as, amazingly, I've yet to get it in a bundle.  Also echo the recommendation of the King's Bounty games.  Postal 2 and Dungeons 2 are also good.
