    In other news Tropico 5 is on sale on steam but is even cheaper on Fanatical for only €2.79, what is a bit more than a price of a coffee so worth grabbing if you are into city builders

    Bought this in haste, turns out I already have it...sigh. Another unused key to toss onto the pile. I really need to check my steam account before I impulse buy on other sites.

    Ouch! Well don't despair, happened to me also and there are also people on Steam that trade games for those you don't have so hold on to that one for a while and look at the people trading there are quite a few trustworthy ones around.

    Fanatical has Outward up for cheap on their star deal.

    https://www.fanatical.com/en/game/outward

    Consider picking it up, but i got a gut feeling that it might end up in the humble bundle monthly/choice soon'ish. What do you all think, buy or wait?

    Guess it got the ddos attack with all the interest.
    I grabbed 2 keys with random email addresses and sent em to friends before it went down.
    Seems there's no limit. (or was, rather), so they may be fixing that.

    Guess it is truly marketed at the train collector/enthusiast. Do wonder the actual cost in creating these dlc's compared to what they charge.

    Do they have actual people travelling these railroad lines and mapping them out fully? That could explain quite a bit.

    Don't quote me on it, but I think part of the reason they are so high was that I was reading they have to buy rights to use them since they are based on the real thing or something.

    Probably what @Lucetia said as well, but none of them are super expensive, there's just SO MANY, there's over 500 dlc iirc

    Ah yes, good point. I went out to assume that simply because trains are "public transport" they are open to all but they are privately owned.

    Yep browsed through them on steam they range from 10 to 20+ euro's nothing really high although you might argue that 20 for dlc is a lot.

    Guess i will just pick up the middle tier on humble should suffice for someone like me

    Yeah. I could be wrong though, but I'm sure it plays a part in it.

    Yeah I think I might pick up the $1 tier. Been interested in seeing what all it was about and with the base and a couple dlc would give a good idea.

    Glad I didn't buy frostpunk or Pathfinder some good value in there for me also wanted to try out Shenzhen so some games of my wishlist.

    So if i make a quick list what i want this month is, frostpunk, pathfinder: kingmaker, shenzhen i/o, project warlock, okami hd.

    All the rest is a bit unknown to me to be honest. Might be some gems in there like Eliza or Book of Demons.

    The Hex made a bunch of "best of 2019" lists and multiple friends told me they loved it. The description sounds dumb to me so although I bought it in the winter sale I've not played it but if anyone is poking around in the bundle it might be one to try.

    This is the first Monthly Choice where there were multiple games I was excited to checkout. Spouse claimed two of them immediately and there were several that, although I'd not heard of them before, sounded interesting and worth checking out.

    It's funny how peoples tastes are different, i really liked this last one but this one really has no interest for me, I can play frostpunk on the xbox beta for pc sub that i got 3 months for a buck on, and that was my only interest in the pack lol.

  18. #14718
    Eh, not like last month when it had three game on my wishlist. Only thing that interests me is Underhero, and I already have Okami, so looks like I'm saving money this time.

    HB now has regional pricing,.
    In short - if you're in europe, got either just got a small discount or a bigger buttplug depending on the subscription you use.

    Lite is 4.49
    Basic choice is 13.99 = 15,27 USD (while in USD you pay 14.99) - logic much?
    Premium choice is 17.99 = 19,63 USD. (while in USD you pay 19.99)

    At least the bundles still seem to be up in 1$ etc.
    update: nope, just the existing ones - new ones seem to be 1 euro.. so thats a 9% price increase for europeans.

    I mean, a 63 cent difference on the premium doesn't really seem like that big of a deal honestly, i've seen a lot worse when it comes to regional pricing.
