Aren't you a Prime guy Sly? You should have Tacoma already if you are. I think they gave that one away in the summer iirc.

Easy to miss I suppose, but going on your past luck I wouldnt be surprised if you already had it and forgot about it. :P
Probably :lol:

I never really check the Prime stuff tbf, I might fire up the launcher though and check. I'm still within the refund window if I have already got it.

You have to claim the games each month, so if you didn't claim them they wont be there.

I do have it, it seems.

I grabbed that first Twitch Prime bundle of Observer, Tacoma and Serial Cleaner all those months ago, promptly forgot about them, never played them and never checked the freebies again.

I guess I'll refund my Steam version, I was only about an hour in, I think.

If you are enjoying it maybe just don't bother with the refund? It's only a small amount of money and this way you support the developers.

So whats the damage after the sale dust has settled, anyone pick anything up?

Or were you like me and got absolutely nothing for probably the first time since the sales started.
The Council was the only thing I picked up. It's an adventure game with some RPG elements. It had a few issues but was mostly pretty good fun.

A good point, but the refund already processed. In fairness I suspect I won't be returning to the game. It was ok but there's other stuff on my radar right now.

Did I tell you about the time I almost bought Dying Light a second time because I forgot I already had it?

I'm at the point where I just assume I already have it unless it came out in the last 6 months. I think if I started buying things I already own that would be the final piece of the jigsaw the wife would be looking for to send me to a home.

What about when you buy stuff that you already own, but it's a newer version with better textures or on a different platform, that's okay right?

As long as you can point to both and say "See? They're totally different. One's in a blue box and the other is green." then you're ok. If you have to break down anisotropic filtering then you'll be in the care of the men in white coats before you're even halfway done.
