The only one I would have wanted and don’t already own was Money King, but it’s sold out

Is Killer Queen Black worth it?

Any game is worth less than the price of lunch.

I suppose this is true if you only eat overpriced garbage because you can't cook. $8 when you can cook sets the bar pretty high.

 

But I'd never put Killer Queen Black above food. Just look at the shitty trailer and screenshots. Game is constantly super cheap.

I understand the sentiment, but no.  It's a good thing that many folks here seem to agree on that.  It means there is good selection and competition such that a game's low price doesn't mean it's automatically worth buying.  

 

I suppose there was a time when $5 console games were generally unheard of, and consumers were essentially wired to want to buy such titles, regardless of quality.  Nowadays, with so much out there, and all of it fighting for our increasingly limited discretionary time, I don't think that same mentality of "worth" applies.

I laughed at this.  Such an awful game; so bad that I can easily say Ninja Gaiden Z (which was regularly $5 or less) is a far superior game.

Come on man. Stop being a douche. Depending on where he lives, $8 barely gets you a sandwich. Barely. And yes some people don’t know how to cook. And may not have the time. Nothing wrong with that.

Grabbed Tempest 4000 on PS4 - too great a price to pass up.

Moving Out is a fun couch game to play with others, in the vein of Overcooked and Catastronauts. Not as good, but still fun.

Can you still have one shipped, and never pick one up for free shipping?

You're not wrong.... It was awful... But I'm glad I played it just to know how bad it was

But on the switch? If I’m playing Civ, it’s almost certainly going to be on pc.

Portability is a big plus, but the time between turns and occasional menu with unreadable text on the little screen are the trade off.

I bought my copy for $8 last time around and have gotten my $8 worth already.

Definitely worth $8. Civ 4 is still my jam though- I’ve got thousands of hours in that game.
