Is it a deal? Not sure but I just bought Kingdom Hearts: The story so far for 17.99 on Amazon which bundles nearly all the previous entries in the series before 3.

Handily this means I can sell my old copies of the games on previous systems and make a tidy profit.
Had my eye on this, are there particular games I need to play to get to Kingdom Hearts 3?. Stupid question I know but the 1.5 etc has confused me in the past.

The disc has almost everything you need to play to be more than up to date with the franchise. The story is incredibly convoluted that even playing the main entries will leave you in the dark on some bits.

I’ve spoken to a few people who have played the third main game without playing the others and although they enjoyed it they all regretted not having broached some of the previous entries.

For the price it’s a ridiculous amount of game per pound!

Tesco have some crazy deals on at the moment it seems.

A colleague of mine picked up Tropical Freeze and Mairo/Rabbids for the Switch for £10 each last night.

Might be worth checking out your local store.

Hyper Light Drifter and Mutant Year Zero are next week's free games on the Epic Games Store :shock:

I didn't really get on with the former but the latter is excellent too and just about doesn't outstay its welcome at around 15 hours.

Metro Exodus 50% off.

Heaven's Vault and For the King - 40% off.

The Council 63% off.

And [counts] ...609 more, plenty that fall into the 'I'll try it at that price' bucket.

I'm not going to claim it on the EGS but I'm gonna re-listen to the C&R podcast today when I'm playing Elite. I only played it on the most superficial level back in the day but finished the basic game. Love/hate the map in particular. :D

Just picked Crayola Scoot up on the Nintendo eShop for £2.49 (£2.10 after applying gold points). Absolute bargain! I remember Dave or Mat or someone talking about it on TCGS a while back, saying it was a decent Tony Hawks lite crossed with Splatoon type game for kids. My boys should be well pleased with it. I almost grabbed it for them for £15 in B&M the other week but held off, glad I waited now.

Anyone here interested in getting in to the closed alpha test for Bleeding Edge? It's that new Xbox game from Ninja Theory. I've been given an extra code to give to someone.

Although I've actually not been able to give it a whirl myself. The only time they had the servers open for a session since I got an invite, the sign-up process was broken and I couldn't get in. But that appears to be fixed now.

Just spotted that Yoku's Island Express is a Twitch Prime reward from now until the end of the month!

For anyone with Amazon Prime and a linked Twitch account, it should be available to grab from the crown icon drop-down in the top right corner of the Twitch.tv homepage.

It’s also on gamepass at the moment, was added about a week ago.

Good call, Flabyo!

Leon has also just reminded me that today is Epic Game Store free game changeover day. ABZU and The End Is Nigh are now available for the next seven days. Go, go, go!

ABZU is a personal fave. I think it does swimming in a way that captures the freedom of feeling comfortable in water in a way that no other game I've played does (if that makes sense.)

I've been grabbing these after discovering my laptop can actually play some games! Don't think it'll manage Abzu, but The End Is Nigh should be cool. Do they change the free games monthly?

They're changed weekly at the moment, and I think will be until the end of the year, IIRC. If you go to the Store page on the Epic app there's a banner near/at the top of the page that will show you what's available now and next, including dates.

Prey Digital Deluxe Edition (including the excellent Mooncrash) on PSN for €9.99.

Edit: Also, Injustice Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition is €9.99. I don't know anything about that but assume it's a good deal. It is certainly a deep discount.
