Video Game Deals Catch-All

Dying Light is fantastic but the nighttime stuff is TENSE in a L4D way, as Podunk mentioned.

So the Rockstar Bundle I have never Bully/Max Pain/ Or LA Noir, worth 15 bucks? Yay or nay?

I'd pay that for the Max Payne series alone - they have their flaws but they're amazing in their way. I remember after finishing #3 telling someone that it was the best movie I'd seen that year. LA Noir I found more flawed, but also seriously unique, and well worth at least experiencing. Bully I only know by reputation - it sounded like idiotic tripe but I could be way off.

Edit: just saw that the bundle also includes GTA 3/VC/SA/4 as well. That's a pretty big bundle considering it's cheaper than steam's price for GTA4 alone..

IF this were a console bundle, it would be worth it. I've read that a lot of these games have issues running on PC though. I'd look into them first before buying.

Yeppers! I loved the game, and I would only be out at night if absolutely necessary (which happens sometimes) or if I got caught out when I wasn't especially close to a safe area. It was a blast and I paid full price!

FWIW, I've played almost all of those Rockstar games on PC, and they're perfectly fine. With the newer ones (MP3, GTA4, LA Noire) running on modern PC hardware, they're going to look substantially better than the console versions.

Ni No Kuni is $5 on PSN.

Cities: Skylines is free on Steam right now

Polygon has a pretty good list of other deals going on right now:

Thanks for the suggestions on Dying Light guys, but I had to refund it. It gave me my first ever game-related case of motion sickness or vertigo. I’m not sure which. I’ve never had a game just make me feel all unbalanced like that. I think it had something to do with the camera movement and such, because games such as Titanfall 2 or Homefront Revolution didn’t make me feel that way. Shame really, seemed like a great world to run around in.

Yeah, my b.

Having paid for it a while back, this somehow comes as a relief to me. No idea why, maybe I'm petty or something.

Trying to gauge interest in a 2 or 4-pack of the game Eco, which has just entered Early Access.

2 and 4-packs can be purchased on the Dev's website for a bit of a discount

Single: $30
2-Pack: $55
4-Pack: $100

Looks like quite a fun co-op game.

I'm tentatively interested. Looks neat, though a lot like other crafting games.

Yeah, but I think this one differs in that there's an 'aim' of sorts, that you have to work together towards. There's a meteor heading for your world, and you have 30 real life days to build, craft, tech up enough to make something to destroy it.

However, you can't just go ham and chop down all the trees, hunt all the animals etc, because everything in the world is linked by a background simulation of the ecology system, so things have a knock on effect on each other.

If this were one of many endgames, it would appeal more to me. I love the crafting games and one that attempts to simulate a real ecosystem sounds cool, but I don't want one that has an ending.

You can disable the 'threat'. I'm not sure if they plan to add more possible endgame threats, or just have the pollution disaster cascade if you get carried away long term.

I dunno, having not played it yet, but i'm probably going to give it a whirl, just wanted to see if there was anyone else in the same position and we can each save a few quid

Edit: got 3 others from another community I go to straight away,

Good deal. Definitely let us know how it goes.

Sorry to hear that. I had trouble at first too--I have that problem with a lot of games--but I found that increasing the field of view by a few notches almost completely solved the problem. I guess it's too late now, but in case anyone else runs into Dying Light-related simulation sickness...

It's okay, I'd likely have been too freaked out by nighttime anyway.

In that case you may also want to stay away from Mirror's Edge: Catalyst.

I've actually never played either Mirror's Edge game but somehow own both of them, so I've installed the first one and will see how I take to it. I'm hoping this issue is limited to this one game.

Some Switch deals:

Golf Story is on sale...down to $11.99. I've been looking forward to trying this one so I'll be grabbing it.

Also Rocket League is also on sale for $14.99.

So Lego City Undercover is at its historically lowest price:

Yay/nay?

Agents of Mayhem is $10 on steam.

It's meh. The writing is pretty funny, but the game itself isn't the best implementation of a lego game I've ever played.

This, on the other hand, is worth your time.

It's my favorite Lego game, terrific writing.

I don't know how it is on PC, but the Wii U loading times murdered that game for me. They were excruciatingly long. And I think the Lego gameplay spread out over a GTA style game didn't really grab me. I like that for short bursts of a level, but apparently not for gigantic wandering around stuff.

I'd easily pay that on Xbox just for the Saints Row connection. I wonder if it will hit that price or Games With Gold first?

If you can find it at a Redbox, you can buy Agents of Mayhem for only $4.99. Used. Obviously.

Seconded. I'm about to fire it up to see if I can convince myself that paying for extra characters in 2018 is a thing I am willing to do. (doubtful, no matter how much I'd love Kinzie and Gat on my squad. )
