Discounts seem to be a bit bigger than your usual sale. A lot of little indie games can be had for just a couple of quid each. Very tempted to snag them now even though I know they likely won't get played for another year.
So in total I bought and refunded Steamworld Heist, bought Shadowrun: Hong Kong and Book of Demons. I stared at a lot of other games for the whole of the sale, but never really felt like picking any of them up.

Ok, thanks. Was already thinking I'd wait until it hits the £3-4 kind of mark, did the same with Steamworld Dig, picking that up in this sale, so at that sort of price I don't mind only getting an hour or two's diversion from it.
Depends how much you like incredibly linear cinematic experiences with a minimal amount of mediocre gameplay. It's more movie than game, probably worth 3 quid just as a one off experience. It is rather pretty.
Oh it is, but it's incredibly basic. Think a less mechnically developed Arkham game but simply moving from A to B to fight large arenas of enemies.
If you just want something to switch your brain off and play in a short time frame you will probably get your moneys worth. It takes about 4-5 hours to complete and probably a little less than half of it is cutscenes.
Think I'll leave it, mindless hack and slash sounds like the sort of diversion I wouldn't mind sinking a few hours into, but the endless repetition and basic combat is a bit off-putting, and I hate sitting through endless cutscenes.
