Seconded for Train Valley, fun puzzle game. I'm going to wait until the sequel drops to sub-£5 though.

Come on it's only £8.50 :) It's different enough to the first game that you are not just paying for more of the same.

TBF my to-be-played pile is getting a bit ridiculous (picked up Grimrock 2 and JC3 yesterday, to go with Borderlands 2 and Pre-Sequel I picked up the other week and haven't even loaded up since, as well as many more besides), so there's no rush.

That's why I only picked up the Warhammer 1 base game in this sale, and not WH2 + DLCs. It's enough for me 'to be going on with'.

If I end up really loving it I'll pick the others up in November or Xmas sales.

I would highly Recommend One Finger Death Punch 2 - especially if you liked the first!

The first One Finger Death Punch game was (and still is) a thing of beauty. I was highly sceptical that a sequel could top or do justice to the game without just adding endless more story levels. But what do you know? They did! There's more colour, more insanity, more skills... just more everything.

Mistakes feel a little more punishing than in the first game, but they've tweaked it such that there's better margins for precision, so you should be making fewer mistakes anyway. The colour coding to identify attacks are... sharper, even easier to follow than in the first game, but all of the insanity is there. I love this game. It's absolutely fantastic!

Is it just me or is the store layout for this particular sale absolutely atrocious? It's so long winded navigating to try and find gems on sale which aren't published at the top of the front page.

Yep, it's been a right old chore.

I thought it was OK.

Ended up with:

Supraland
Trials of Fire
Star Wars Heroes Within pinball pack
Bethesda pinball pack

Supraland is a really good game, not had chance to try Trials of Fire yet.

I never bought a thing, again. 2 sales on the bounce now.

Seems that I've increasingly bought all I need and anything I do fancy is more often than not cheaper elsewhere.
