Err.. Deadlight, it was FREE

Keep looking at Pillars of Eternity but still too expensive even in a sale for the Royal Edition, £28, and the ridiculous price of £68 non-sale price. Then there's £12 for the 2 expansions in the sale and £20 non-sale so i'll just wait for the GOTY Edition to appear in a sale

Oh, sorry, I was under impression you bought 'Piñata' - hidden game for 3 bucks.

Seems they are having issues giving duplicate (or triple) games in piñata...

No, not buying into this piñata sale, probably get some stupid indie rubbish! Plus the problems that have been highlighted with dupes makes me less than impressed!!

Haven't bought one so far. I was kinda hoping to get Pillars of Eternity from this.
If only there was a chance of Trails in the Sky the 3rd, haha.

I looked at Obduction too but that's not in the sale either. Thought about Shadow Warrior 2 but only the base game is on sale, £17.59, the 'Deluxe' is still £44.99 and the 'Deluxe Upgrade' is still £7.59, seems very inconsistent when it comes to sales only having 'parts' of the same game on sale!

I beat the sh*t out of a Piñata and all I got was Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition.

Well, it's actually not that bad for the money.

They had someone run to Mexico to get more piñatas!

Good luck!

Well, surprise surprise, it's still not appeared after more that 24 hours! Have now sent a rather snotty email to them asking for a refund!
