Blah, bought Shakedown Hawaii for ten bucks in February. "It's an exclusive," I thought. "It won't get cheaper than ten bucks," I thought. I sure can pick 'em.

What a quaint idea, to actually play a game after spending money on it. I should try that sometime.

I'd recommend;

Satisfactory if you're into building games and incrementally optimizing your base. Might not sound like fun the way I described it, but it's got that same sort of itch that's scratched by games like Minecraft where there's always something to be done.

Detroit: Become Human (cheapest price it's ever been on PC, especially if you use the coupon in addition!) if you're looking for a fulfilling narrative game involving multiple characters, great for those who don't want to play a game with a lot of demand on dexterity and you're guaranteed you'll really enjoy Connor's storyline! If you enjoy Detroit or already played it, pick up Heavy Rain (and maybe Beyond Two Souls), Heavy Rain is the better of the two but it is showing signs of being aged due to being a decade old already.

I wouldn't recommend buying any of the Ubisoft games in this sale, mainly because Ubisoft is having their own sale at the Uplay Store and it's in CAD there, plus they have major Canadian studios which is nice to support as well.

As these prices are in USD, I'm not sure what people are seeing as a good deal here. With the coupon these convert to CAD prices on par with buying direct from sales on Steam, Uplay, GMG etc, and without the coupon they seem like bad prices generally higher than those other storefronts. Am I overlooking something?

Is it like Factorio in first person view?

Yeah that's a really good comparison! If you loved Factorio, you should enjoy Satisfactory. The 3D element really does make a difference, and you can build really intricate vertical things (or build them as wide as you want), and they continue adding more fun things to the game as well so it's not JUST about some hardcore optimization. But if you're into that hardcore optimization there's plenty of that in the game, from calculating exactly how you can split conveyer belts to maximize production efficiency and all that jazz.

The developers have stated they're also bringing the game to steam late may they're thinking, and it will be crossplay compatible so even if you get the game now on sale and your friends down the line pick it up on steam you'll still be able to play with them.

Highly highly recommend the game, it's the number one reason I'm struggling to get any work done!

Thanks! I'll wait for the Steam edition though.

I got Assassins Creed Odyssey for $9.97 USD on the Epic store with their $10 spring sale coupon. It's $26CDN on the Uplay store. Epic's $10 Spring Coupon makes everything so much cheaper even with the exchange rate.

Anybody have experience with how fast price adjustments are? In their FAQ, they say to just request refund and rebuy but that depends on how long the refund takes as I can't rebuy until they refund.

I just bought something a couple days ago and it's now 20% off. Haven't played more than 2 hours so should be eligible.

I agree that most of these “deals” Aren’t deals. But when stacked with the 10$ spring coupon, Some games can be worth it. I ended up getting borderlands 3 for USD19.99 which I think was a good deal. Can’t seem to find it cheaper elsewhere. But 100% that these aren’t great deals in general.

I bought RDR 2 using the $10 off coupon and came to $56.14 CAD = $37.99 USD. Cheapest I could find anywhere at the moment. Now to wait for it to download...118 GB.

I've never bought anything on the Epic Store, and I don't ever plan to. I absolutely hate how splintered my PC game library already is (99% of my owned games are on Steam, the last 1% is Battle.net, Origin, uPlay...). I don't want another Launcher, I don't want to own games on a different platform. If any of the exclusives come to Steam, I'll consider buying them!

The Crew 2 is still $80 Cdn on Steam (same price at Green Man Gaming, $23 at CDKeys).
Epic's sale price after coupon discount is $4.99 USD ($7.05 Cdn.).
My PC can handle another game launcher for that deal... :)

Son, back in the day we had to install games seperately from multiple DVDs, and before that multiple CDs, and even before that on multiple floppy drives. If you lost one of the CDs/DVDs/Floppies, you couldnt play the game anymore. You had to fish for the patches for each game, and for anti-piracy you always had to have one of the DVDs/CDs/Floppys in the drive. There was no Steam, Uplay, Origin, Epic etc. Now you just click one of these services, they do everything for you, and you're good to go.

First world problems.

You mean "back in the day we got to own our games".
