Editor's Note: It takes too long to format the news post like I have in the past, so I'm likely to use the PR from here on out.
ZombiU is great! Very underrated. A little more production could have gone into it, but it's all in all a great survival-horror game. I wish we would get a sequel. I'm tempted to pick it up just to have it on my console (it's one of two disc-based games I still own, the other being Nintendo Land) so I can replay it next Halloween. I also want Child of Light...I've had my eye on it for a while.
Rayman Legends is also excellent, especially at that price.
@ludist210 I got Child of Light on PS4, haven't beaten it, but I did enjoy the couple of hours I put into it. The art style is pretty, music is great, and the battle system is a very different take on the turn based stuff. Felt like an evolution of Paper Mario's battle system in a way.
@GameDadGrant ZombiU is a fun one, heck even the multiplayer is pretty interesting. I got it last time it was on sale and enjoyed it.
Nothing new for me. But the Curve and Ubisoft sales are nice.
All four Curve titles are on my wish list. Of Lone Survivor, Stealth 2, Swapper, and Thomas Was Alone, I'm leaning towards Lone Survivor.
I already have pretty much all the Ubisoft I want, with the exception of Child of Light. I'm definitely getting that. If Watch Dogs were discounted more, I'd be more inclined to consider it. I still think I'll be picking it up used for under $20 some time in the next 8 months.
