    The HOTDEALS code expired yesterday, apparently.

    And do any physical games come with a disc anymore? Seems all you're buying is dvd case with a steam key attached. Either way, you're going to be downloading it anyway.

    Yes, which is why interpreting "downloadable" as "I get a Steam key" is dumb - when the thread was created, it meant "I get a key and I don't have to wait for the post"

    Yeah, today's deal is fine - I was objecting to the previous posts for Wolfenstein II and AC: Origins, but my second reply on the topic happened to be after Walker posted today's Shadow of War deal.

    From the OP of this thread:

    It is a preference not a requirement of the thread.

    And yet for some reason people managed to post downloadable games pretty much exclusively for the first 7 years of the thread's existence....it's almost like we all understood what the thread was for?

    Anyway. This thread isn't special. It's not even a sticky anymore. If you want a "Bargain Games In The Post" thread, anyone can go right ahead and create it.

    Wolfenstein II is available in PC/PS4/XB1 and all were on sale (I bought PC version in store). As for AC: Origin, it's not physically available for PC but I thought it was xbox play anywhere title (I was wrong) so it would qualify.

    I think you earned it! There was probably a few copies sold as a result of your post.

    Edit: Just double checked mine, no such luck.

    I can’t believe I’ve never tried this game before! I would have easily bought it! I also preordered Sandstorm which I’ll refund as the beta ran like arse. Will repurchase if things improve post release though.
