Its live folks. Number of games I have my eye on, with a pretty substantial portion of my wishlist below $10.

Here's what I'm thinking of picking up:

Shadow Warrior 2
Vampire Survivors
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Jedi Fallen Order
Papers, Please
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Blasphemous
Witcher 3 Expansion Pass
Shadow of War
Darksider's Genesis
Prototype 2
Darksider's 3


I mean there are even more but honestly I was hoping to keep it to just 6 games so I don't just restock my entire library again.

Might whittle down the buy list to two games per genre/category or price tier ($2 / $5 / $ 7 / $9)

Vampire Survivors
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Witcher 3 Expansion Pass
Shadow of War
If you get any games this sale, make sure it's these four. I could write paragraphs of praise for each of these if I weren't on mobile right now but I'll just say if anyone sees these games around their price point, don't hesitate. They're well worth the full asking price.

Love me some Darksiders! Good choices :D

Not sure if I'll pick up anything off my wishlist. Contenders are:

Remnant From the Ashes
Iron Harvest
Gears Tactics

Is Assassin's Creed Valhalla good? I never followed the series because I found the first one to be very repetitive.

I picked up Disgaea 5. Was going to get Age of Empires 4 but don't think I'll have time for it. That'll have to wait for next year.

There is a chance Rise of the Tomb Raider gets given away free in the next few days on Epic Game Store since they gave away the Tomb Raider 2013 / Rise of the Tomb Raider / Shadow of the Tomb Raider trilogy last Christmas (all complete editions also). I'd hold out on buying that until the 29th if you don't mind using the EGS launcher.

Don't know but yeah Assassins Creed 1 is awful. Assassins Creed 2 and Assassins Creed Brotherhood are amazing though if you don't mind playing games from around 2008 or so.

- Thanks for the heads up but I'm one of those guys that would rather pay $5 to have the game as part of my Steam Library than add another launcher for free.

Guess I'll be picking up:

Metro Saga Bundle
UnderMine
AMID EVIL
Kingdom Two Crowns
Hob

I'm still on the fence about RDR2 and many other $15+ games on my wishlist so I'll have to revisit this at another time before the sale ends.
I posted this in the GoG thread when I meant to post it here, but since I had to work through the 5th, I missed my chance to take the plunge on any of the other games on my list. I was going to grab RDR2 and Hob at the very least, but that didn't happen. Though I'm sure that's fine since I don't need more games on my wishlist.
