Thanks. It's probably a mistake as it'll end up on Game Pass but seems like a good price (I was going to spend £20 on RCT3 on Switch anyway). Going via quidco brings the price under £30.

If anyone has a £10 voucher left on their Epic account you can get Hades for just over a fiver, and the vouchers expire at the end of the month. I don't even like roguelikes all that much but this has gotten rave reviews and seems less harsh than others in the genre in terms of dying progressing the story instead of "lol git gud scrub".

I used my last 2 on Shenmue 3 Deluxe Edition and then Predator Hunting Grounds after waiting an age for it to hit a sale price and I think the latter game is basically dead :slol:

Recommendation to anyone buying things through the Epic store, download the GOG Galaxy 2.0 launcher and link it to your Epic games account. It's easier to launch your games from there than it is to do it through the Epic launcher itself.

This is £15 at Amazon for PS4. Picked it up thanks to this post (and subsequent investigation), and I'm chuffed I did as my kids have loved playing it today. My daughter, who's seven, now wants me to buy games that simulate theme parks, schools, restaurants and dance classes. I did explain that some of those might be easier to acquire than others...

For those interested, ebay have a 20% off code that can be used on The Game Collection Ebay store. I just pre-ordered the Spider-Man MM Ultimate Edition (the one with the remastered version of the original) for £59.96

Code is POPUPOCT20, they have other PS5 games up for pre-order as well so worth a look.

Long Live Switch Squad!

I think Kairosoft have got most of those covered.

Probably not much of an announcement but the Resident Evil series is down to buttons on Steam's Halloween sale. Picked up 0, Remake, 4, 5 and 6 for £15 the lot, 2 Remake Deluxe for £18. 3Make is £25 if anyone's interested as well(I'm not, it's probably still cheaper elsewhere). The Biohazard Collection Pack(4, 5, 6, Revelations, Revelations 2 and all DLC) is significantly reduced as well.

3Make is £20.99 on CDKeys for a Steam Key, though that doesn't include the Classic Jill DLC

In so far as I understand Cex is discounting a lot of stuff slightly because they're gonna have to close for the lockdown again. Both in store and online, but each game has a £1.50 delivery fee when buying online.

CEX online delivery charge is a joke, but they get items for seperate stores hence the seperate delivery charge.
But I know folks who order Blu-Rays and end up getting the DVD's or a different title entirely

I once ordered a CPU from them and the idiots sent me a completely different one. I think they just stuck it in a jiffy bag, as well.

Anybody know of any deals on PSN vouchers anywhere currently? Want to take advantage of the indie sale on the store.
