Horizon: Zero Dark Thirty was exactly what it needed to be. It's an ubisoft open-world game where each of the main activities is only repeated like 6 times, there's a lot of hand crafted side quests, and the actual combat mechanics are fun.

The DLC gets to be a little much, since it's basically trying to double the original content, but I still went back in for a higher difficulty NG+ after 100% normal just to get more of the experience. And I don't normally do that.

Yeah, I ended up getting the platinum on Horizon and its DLC. The gameplay loop got me in a way Ubisoft stuff never managed.

itch.io has a TTRPGs for Trans Rights in Texas bundle on.

I'm not much of a tabletop gamer and I'm not familiar with any of these, but it's for a good cause, and there is a game called Jonathan Frakes Wants Your Attention, And You Must Not Give It To Him and that made me laugh.

Looks like there's a big Square Enix sale on on Steam and Humble, and various smaller ones on the Switch and PlayStation stores.

On the PC side, it looks like a lot of games that used to have Denuvo don't anymore.

Also, speaking of Shantae there's a Shantae sale on Switch, too. I think the whole series is 50% off, plus various DLC is on sale too?

GOG is advertising "Daggerfall FOR FREE" -- hasn't Daggerfall been free for like 15 years?

Anyway Shantae's still free too.

For those who've been waiting for the Steam release of FF7 Remake, it's here and it's temporarily on sale for "only" $50. No third-party DRM, and it's Steam Deck Verified, so that's pretty cool even if the price point isn't.

i mean given what they charge for a 30 year old game that is a pretty great price point for a two year old game
