Might be a good idea to add links to games that have been reviewed on site

I'll quote myself from the "Max Max 50% on Feral store" topic:

Quoting: gehneoI accidentially bought it Max Max a second time today on the Feral store (first time in Steam Winter Sale but didn't play it yet). So, whoever reads this comment and wants a Steam key for Mad Max – PM me and I'll send you the key. Though I am not 100% sure if the code still works after I tried to activate it and it failed because I already owned the game.

EDIT: The Key's gone now :)

Maybe worth a special mention of the Full Throttle remastered Preorder 20% discount....

Edit: Oops, sorry, I just see you already covered it in a separate article. I'm reading news top-down.....

A few decent deals I've spotted:

We Are The Dwarves on Humble for £3.98 (81% off)

Trine 2 on Steam for £2.09 (85% off)

Brutal Legend DRM free on GOG for £1.19 (90% off)

I bought Broforce last weekend from GOG, when it was on sale (75% off). Shame, but it isn't on sale any more. Really enjoyable platform shooter with destroyable environment - Highly recommended when it comes back on sale - or full price :P

Trine & Trine 2 are ~85% off on a semi permanent basis

Square Enix sale on GreenmanGaming

Life is Strange 3.57 GBP
Deus Ex Mankind Divided 10.3 GBP
etc...

Played Mad Max for the first time, and I must say, I'm not impressed. The graphic looks good, but all bugs and glitches what game still has, makes it annoying to play. In two hours I had two big bugs, when I had to restart whole game. Thought, it is because of linux, but no, in yotube I found many videos about similar bugs and glitches.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. While I wasn't blown away with Mad Max, I did thoroughly enjoy it. I had practically zero bugs or glitches while playing, and it was playing well for me even running at 4K resolution. Metacritic gives it a critical review score of 73% which I feel is a pretty fair result.

Also, at this price point (£3-£4) on sale, the game is an absolute bargain compared to the retail price.
