Yup. $15 is a solid price and I had a ton of fun playing the campaign.

For your penance you need to buy 3 heavily discounted games and never play them.


Open Steam , buy some games and close steam. Boom....problem solved! :D

I remember that Castlevania game caused a lot of disappointment. People expected a traditional game, but it's more of an arcade style experience with an emphasis on multiplayer and time attacks. A friend of mine loved it, just don't go in expecting Symphony of the Night or anything like it.

 

Crystal Defenders reviewed pretty well IIRC, and if you like Final Fantasy, it's skinned w/ FF enemies/themes/etc.

 

The Contra games are the arcade ports, which are a lot harder than the NES games. If you know that going in, $2.50 is not bad.

 

Silent Hill HD was kinda broken, and only the PS3 port got patched. They even offered free games to players who bought it, because it was broken. They lost the source cod to the original, final builds of SH2-3, and used pre-finished code to create the HD games. So they aren't ports of the final PS2 versions, SH2 was more of a beta.

 

Some discussion on it:

https://www.reddit.c...on_playable_at/

 

Some report it plays fine. Others, not.

15% off sitewide at Rakuten. Get your XBL Credit there, and effectively take another 15% off the sale prices here!

I can only speak on Castlevania and Crystal defenders

 

I loved castlevania a lot ,because like GGP said, its faster paced and a lot of fighting. I liked it because it felt different

 

On the other hand I hated crystal defenders. It's a pretty straight forward turret defense game. The set ups you need to get perfect rankings are insanely hard and you can ruin the whole run by placing a turret like 1/10 of an inch out of place

Really struggling witj whether i should buy battlefront ii or not. I generally enjoyed the first one, and consider myself a pretty big fan of star wars
For $15 it seems like a pretty good deal
Dlc is all free now right? Just cosmetics to buy with mtx?


If you enjoyed the first it is with getting. Campaign wasn't bad, all dlc is free except the cosmetics, and I believe one of the upcoming patches is supposed to go back to a squad system similar to the first.

Starfighter mode is a hell of a lot of fun too.

Have not tried the campaign so no idea about it but the mp is a mess. I get thrown in with guys with all maxed out cards that I can’t kill lol. The matchmaking just seems off but that could just be the low player count. All that is left is the hardcore and new people. Then the new people leave because it does not look like I can ever reach where these other player are. I might just be bitching because I suck lol.

The game is pretty and does play better then the first.

Fortnite F2P must be starting soon?  I think they said 2018, and we have 5 months left.  I'd like to try the main game but will wait patiently like a cheapass.

Keep wondering myself. Heard something about August but who knows. Always tempted by the Standard Pack when it’s on sale but know it would probably be stupid. Not even sure I’ll like the main mode.

idk. You don't even have to build alot if you matchmake (on by default.) I'm still in the 1st world and just been having fun harvesting and shooting husks. If any of you have kids that are skinaholics, the update tomorrow gives founder skins for BR.

this guy gets it. however, now that kroger/fred meyer are doing discounted gift cards again, it's best to wait for that if they're in your market. they frequently do 20% off.

Considering:

Conan Exiles
Killer Instinct DE
Inside
Rise of the Tomb Raider 20th
LEGO Avengers Deluxe
Tacoma
Life is Strange Before the Storm

I'm surprised there's so many games I am interested and don't have. Any recommendations either way for any of those games?

 

Dunno if you're still considering any of these, but I'd recommend LIS: BTS if you liked the first. I played through it over the weekend. While not as good as the first one (how could it be), it's definitely worth playing. Lots o' feels.

It isn't much, but I won't end up using this, so here it is up for grabs. This code is good for 25% off a rental on Vudu. Hopefully someone can use it.
 
VRVTR?LMYFCURGP?

 

? = A number considered lucky by most people

Must redeem by 7/25/2018 by 11:59pm PDT.
Credits must be used within 7 days from redemption.

Hey thanks! This worked for me as well. I guess I'll finally rent Ant-Man and complete my MCU watching catalog (for now).

Somehow or another I got access to the Fortnite Save the World campaign. I launched the game to play the BR mode and saw the prompt for the single player. It started me up and I played for an hour or so. Popped 5 achievements. I'm not sure what I did differently but I definitely got to play some of the single player mode without purchasing anything.

How do the Marvel Ultimate Alliance games hold up today? I remember renting the first one at *cough* Blockbuster Video when it came out. It was pretty awesome if I recall. Is the pair worth playing at $15?

Wow, that's awesome thanks so much!  I have such a poor batting average when it comes to contests; makes me think I should buy a lottery ticket this week. 

 

Thanks for the terrific giveaway echotech83, and for hosting the draw PatFortenbaugh.  Promise I'll prioritize this game and not let it get lost in the crazy backlog!

Congrats PsiScream! I think Hellblade has been one of the most bought games of the sale. That was a heck of a giveaway by Echotech83 and handled by PatFortenbaugh.

Just cause it's easier to link to this Gamestop article than to actually do individual things on NewEgg, some decent 50% off stuff for the Xbox and better than Ultimate & Anime sales on  Okami, Resident Evil 7, Dishonored Death of the Outsider and PUBG.

I'm truly debating on diving in on No Man's Sky tonight and not buying anything else, I know that's not the CAG way 

 

edit: can't play till 9:00am tomorrow so I can sleep on it

All this talk about BFII for $15. I'm tempted, but I've hardly touched the first game. I feel like by the time I've got my fill of I, II will be even cheaper.

Yeah just physical discs I think, and it's pretty random what's in stock for what platform, I guess for PUBG you would get that cardboard case with the code in the box
