    LOL @ price.

    I can buy 20 good indie games for that price. Wait for 90% discount in a year or two.

    On Voidu you can get it for 22.50€, not too bad considering there are three games in the collection I think.

    I just noticed something,Borderlands The Handsome Collection was on sale with a 93% discount but now suddenly it changed to 86% discount...


    Is Randy Pitchford too butthurt that people are review bombing his games on Steam and decided to lower the discount to stick it to those evil steam users?

    Probably accidentally typed 93% while browsing his child porn.

    On the side note, I initially disabled the Steam's new option where they hid negative review spam from total scores, but it was a bad idea.

    Turning it on cause this childish negative review spam ruins so many games I want to see genuine ratings of.

    I want to but negative reviews mention things which scare me.

    Anyway, bought that Borderlands: Handsome Collection, since they fixed that discount. Might as well, haven't played an FPS for like 2 years now.

    I don't remember but I'm pretty sure they removed the licensed tracks from the Steam re-release.
    Anyway yeah, for that price Obscure is a great purchase. Obscure 2 is a bit less interesting, still worth a play.

    Well that sucks. I played it back in 2005, when it wasn't on Steam. Music definitely added a lot to the creepy atmosphere in Obscure.

    I haven't played the sequel myself, I didn't hear anything good about it when it was released.

    This is almost like Obsidian and PD releasing The Outer Worlds on Steam using a different title to avoid breach of contract with Epic, and ever so slightly different visual and names:

    Well for what it's worth, this game was on Steam Greenlight from 2017. Though visuals at that time doesn't look similar to TOW as it is now.
