Got a second mail included 30% for my secondary account, which didn't include a discount code at the previous message other than 10% that I found in plain text. Check your mails again!

I did. It was the worst PS4 game that I have played. Avoid it.
Can't talk about the full game, but there is a demo on PS4 which I played and....

Yeah, basically this, demo was god awful.
I played maybe an hour of the Homefront trial over the last couple of nights and it's a really weird game. Visually it looks great and the lighting especially is fantastic. I don't like the dreary war-torn environment much and the completely self-serious and hyper-violent plot is really offputting. It's hard to believe this is the same company that developed TimeSplitters. I like stuff like being able to buy loadout and customise your guns, although the actual combat doesn't feel very good and I can't quite put my finger on why. I'm playing on the easiest difficulty too and something just doesn't feel right about the movement and shooting. Anyway, I probably won't buy it but I appreciate that it has a lengthy free trial.

So i got the email with the Xmas theme but didn't see an code for the discounts. I opened the email as plain text and I have a message about the discounts and some links to the terms of conditions for them but still cant see the codes for the discounts themselves.

Apparently, they've added some games that only last for 4 days. I found MediEvil (33% off for the Standard and 22% for Deluxe) and Death Stranding 23% off for the Deluxe Edition, Standard isn't on sale tho. Is this some kind of stealth sale? Either way, time put my discount code to good use ;p

It is possible you didn't get one just like me. Usually I don't even get these emails but I did get one finally a suprise suprise, no discount code in sight.


The only thing I can think of is that Sony hates me.

Uhm, Death Stranding Digital Deluxe is 25% off, but the standard edition is still at full price.

Should I get Tekken 7? Or should I wait for a digital deluxe version to go on sale for extra characters. £8 is super cheap but not if it means I’ll have to pay full whack on DLC if I ever get it

The standard version includes 30/35 characters, all of them quite complex, in usual Tekken fashion. I'd tell you to enjoy what's there, because it's probably more than enough to satiate you for many hours; if you're missing someone or after investing time in it you still want a larger roster, there will always be another DLC sale in the future.

Ah so DLC does go on sale? That was my concern because often DLC got games remains full price.

Same, it's pretty weird to get hidden terms of conditions for codes you didn't get ...

This sale has been the 'everything is pretty cheap except the things I want to buy, which have been cheaper multiple times before' sale.

I suppose the discount code alleviates that slightly (if I even have one), but it's still fairly expensive.

After beating my first From game this year in Sekiro, I’m kinda in the mood for more now.

Did Dark Souls 3 draw any influence from Bloodborne?

I really liked Bloodborne because it put more emphasis on being aggressive and on offence.

To a fault, in my opinion.
DS3 is like if FROM SOFTWARE couldn't decide whether they wanted to make BB2, or a Dark Souls remake.

You can still use a shield (although like always, and like how I always play, it's completely playable without one), but the game is a hell of a lot faster than the other Souls games. There are also numerous transforming/multi stage boss fights, of that's something you enjoy from Sekiro and BB.

Thanks.

I do prefer BB and Sekiro so that does sound more up my alley than giving 2 another shot.
