    Anyone play World War Z? At $20 I might pull the trigger. I just don't want it to be a really short game.

    Only problem is you have to use the Epic client to play them, thanks but no thanks.

    That's precisely why they are doing this...to get more people hooked on their ecosystem. :p

    I admit there are a few tempting deals, but nothing I care too much about.

    Steam used to be shit too, and free games are free games.

    Fuck epic. At least this is more respectful than purchasing exclusivity rights for the first 6 months of a titles launch.

    Stories Untold is available for free now. As a fan of the old classic text adventures this sound interesting to me.

    cvinh WWZ is a lot of fun, got it the day it came out. Fun destroying hordes of zombies, lot of replayability with leveling up your characters and playing at higher difficulty level.

    SPARTAN VI I got Ashen when it first came out as well. Very good price at $20. Has a pretty good dark souls feel to it gameplay wise. I've probably only got around 8-10 hours in so far, but seems like I've got a good bit left to go.

    If anyone likes platformers like rogue, absolutely pick up Hades. it's a ton of fun. Especially for like $5 that it's selling for during the sale.

    Its not the shityness, but the privacy and security concern with the client and how much of the data it tries to scrap gets sent to who knows where.
    If they fix (like they say they supposedly are) I might consider it.

    Im gunna keep downloading all the free games they give away but then not buy anything from them, in case that fortnite money disappears (doubtful) before they get a good client built. :-P

    They missed the opportunity to call this the Epic MegaGames Sale, so I'll pass.

    They havn't impressed me with any PC game they've released since UT2004, mostly because thy abandoned PC for consoles. Just because they decided to start trying fifteen years later doesn't mean I've forgotten.

    They'll lose interest once again, once the next generation of consoles launches.

    Yeah, that makes absolutely zero sense. They're not going to pour millions of dollars into the store and "lose interest" in it unless it completely fails.

    Also got Heavy Rain because i want to try it. Also got Afterparty since it was fairly cheap. None of the rest really interested me although i MAY consider World War Z. (Heard it's basically a newer Left for dead clone with newer graphics but much the same type of gameplay, minus a few new twists :couchpotato:)

    If anyone is looking for a decent grid based dungeon crawler, check out Operencia. Picked it up for $10 last night on EGS and have really been enjoying it so far. Feels a lot like Might and Magic X, from the graphics to the gameplay.

    I got Metro Exodus. For $35 I didn't think that was bad.

    I'll have to check that out since I enjoyed M&M X. Thanks for the heads up.

    Nice, i played the first Metro game and really liked it. I have Metro Last Light on Steam but have not been able to play it as I get terrible motion sickness despite trying to mess with the various graphics settings :-(. Seems to always be the damn sequels to so I get interested in the story and then it's snatched from me lol. BioShock 2, the new Resident Evils, the new Dead Spaces and so on LOL Just my damn luck lol. Play the heck out of LL for me, I paid full price d'oh :)

    I had that issue with Bioshock 2 as well. Don't notice it in Metro.

    Nice to see Ubisoft finally jumped in on the sale. I picked up FC: Primal for $5. Might pick up Anno also, still not totally sure I'm sold on that one.
