It may not surprise you to hear that I already have every single game in the list of selections.
It does not. :D

if anyone has an extra spot in their bundle, i'd like to get the Civ V Brave New World DLC and will reimburse them for it.

They're doing some type of crazy "Bundle Blast" over at Fanatical right now. Trailer is from yesterday.

Just picked up the Sega Genesis/Megadrive bundle for $7.49. 50+ games. Worth it for the RPGs alone - Phantasy Star 2-4, Shining Force 1 & 2, etc. It's been fun discovering I still suck as badly at ESWAT and Altered Beast now as I did when I was 14.

Not all the titles are winners, but there's enough there to justify the cost. I think the kids are going to love all the Sonic games included.

be sure to try Landstalker

Gain Ground, if you've never played it before, is quite good. it's a 'tactical top-down shooter', kinda. gets very difficult.

Gain ground was a top 5 ever arcade game for me. My friend and I could make a quarter last the better part of an hour on that game.

is Fallout 4 GOTY worth 27? I doubt it'll go much lower within the next 6 months.

I keep thinking I want to buy this - the 3 BG games. Had them in my cart last night (have a 10% bundle discount coupon from a recent bundle purchase - suckered in for discounted mystery bundle - nothing I wanted though..). But then I remember I owned the originals, came nowhere near to completing them, have FAR less time to even attempt to play them these days and was not overly fond of the combat system, which is a significant part of the joy of RPGs for me. So I keep going back and thinking to buy and keep stopping.

LOL. I have bought the BG games at least twice, and I still consider re-upping for the "enhanced" editions all the time. "Maybe on the easy setting I can get through it finally..." I totally feel what you're saying!

I wish the "enhanced" editions had unlimited storage and/or "town portal". (LOL, but I am also totally serious...)

The secret to making the normal difficulty into easy is simply to equip everyone wit ha ranged weapon for the first couple areas or so of the game. Thats what I read and did on my 3rd try at it back when it was new. Everyone got a bow...even Boo :)..I keed...but bows won the day and got me lvld up enough to play the rest of the game normally.

I remember you or someone saying use ranged weapons before.

It wasn't so much that the combats were too hard, just not so much fun. Probably too used to something like the gold box games or a 3rd Ed game called Low Age of magic (think it's still in early release or something). They're adding some story stuff, but trying to replicate 3rd Ed rules. Got it just before the price went up while it was on sale (think I paid $3.39 or something like that). Had fun with that for a while.

Don't have the patience to play through for the stories. I couldn't complete the Star Wars Bioware game either, nor could I get far in the online game with it's great stories. Overall, more of a strategy game player. Like some ARPGs too. Think Diablo ruined me for RPGs though.

FWIW, Fanatical's top deal is Shadow of War for $14. And yes, it's the gold edition, all the DLCs.
