Hmm, 8€ for Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is pretty nice ... But it looks very different from the original? Gonna have to mull it over for a bit.

What's with the mispriced games? Outer Wilds claimed to be 11 bucks, then I clicked to buy and it was 25 minus the 10 coupon so 15. Same stuff with Phoenix Point. They store page is 10 to 20 below the price when you try to buy them. And I just somehow bought Thimbleweed Park for $10 despite it saying it's $5.

At least using the mobile site. Those two games show as $24.99 (no pre-discount) for Outer Wilds and $39.99 (no pre-discount) for Phoenix Point. Meaning $14.99 and $29.99 for those with coupon. Also Thimbleweed Park shows as $10 (with pre-discount) meaning the coupon isn't valid.

Ha, looks like the running standalone app didn't update itself. At least I can see all the price differences pre-coupon as a point of comparison.

Played John Wick Hex for 3.5 hours last night. It's a bit rough around the edges but really fun, definitely recommend especially this cheap.

Tetris Effect for $19.99? Fuck yes.

If I use the 50% off code from the John Wick blu-ray towards Hex, would that apply along with the $10 coupon, or replace it?

You can get it on Origin Premier for $5 if you're up with that, along with Fallen Order, Darksiders 3, PvZ Neighborville, BF5, and so on and so forth. Point being, if it's not your cup of tea, you'll at least have a bunch of other stuff to fall back on

How's Ancestors? Kind of curious for $10.
Bought that too. I played it a buddy's place and it's different. Huge learning curve with little payoff but it's fun if you can make it fun. Definitely something to experience though and it's made by Patrice Desilets (Prince of Persia (2003), Assassin's Creed, AC2, AC Brotherhood)

Picked up Tetris Effect for the third time. They started officially charging tax with this sale, too, huh?

I know this thread is already full of "Is _________ any good?" posts, but.... Is Metro Exodus any good? Seems like it reviewed well at release then kinda fell off the map a bit.

Didn't expect to buy anything this Xmas sales, but AssCreed Odyssey for 14 € is too good to ignore.

Now, what do i do with the second coupon?

what happens if they give away a game we bought with a coupon? can we get a refund? or are they only giving away new games? didn't even think about that before buying wattam, division 2, manifold garden, and superliminal.

User warned: off-topic derailing over a series of posts
Hint: it's also because OP was dickish about an issue so contentious that it drove a large portion of a particular community into creating a splinter forum. That they did it using an alt right meme was just the cherry on top. That's the last I'll say.

I have game pass, but I think I'm gonna double dip and get Outer Wilds on PC, since I don't know if the Bone version is too hot

Is Control better with a pad or mouse/keyboard?
Control rewards precision, so if you're comfortable with KBAM, I'd suggest sticking with that. Otherwise I'm sure it's perfectly serviceable as a TPS using a gamepad

What's it like without all those spiffy RT effects though? I don't think my "ordinary" 1070 would do it justice.
While I'm sure it looks EVEN BETTER with RT On, The game is great looking in its own right just with the normal graphical effects. Assuming you're running at 1080p, that 1070 should run Control no problem with Medium/High settings. And it will still look stellar.

I played it on console, it's alright. Just don't stress too much about hoarding items and crafting materials. IIRC the game is split up into seasons and has this asinine, barely explained mechanic in where at the start of a season your train either "uses up" most of your items or resets your inventory to a set amount (I'm not sure exactly which is the case). Meaning there's almost no point to scavenging the open-world (outside of weapon parts, but they're honestly everywhere) or being conservative with items unless you're playing the game very poorly. And it's not a hard game. I would even say the open-world aspect was clearly tacked on and the game probably would've been better without it.

I double dipped on Tetris Effect now that I have a Rift-S. Now I can play the game without spending 20min hooking up PSVR shit.

Epic is really trying with this store. It's just so sad that they can't get basic features up and running. The entire store client feels terrible to use.

Funny enough, i was actually planning on buying it today and just happened to get it during the sale. And yeah, game's super fun! Came out just when I had started to dip my toes into Battletech lore.
If you want, they also released a free novella series to accompany the game: https://mw5mercs.com/novellas

If you just want to be introduced to the basics of the lore, then this is also a good primer: https://bg.battletech.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/BattleTechPrimer_Final.pdf

And check out the Battletech game if you're into turnbased games like X-Com as well: https://store.steampowered.com/app/637090/BATTLETECH/ - the Mercenary pack is excellent

Holding off on anything not a brand new AAA game in case there’s some crazy giveaway on Christmas or something.

I actually just got BattleTech too. And I've been watching the BlackPantsLegion lore videos. Currently they have up a two parter on the rise and fall of star league, and the next big subject will be the first Succession War.

I will check out those novellas!
