I think they're having some issues. I clicked on the Call of Duty Franchise Collection thumbnail, which is advertising as $4, and when its store page appears, it says $466.87. Forget that noise.

Yep. I'm on there now to see if there is anything I fancy - its very slow to say the least. It happens every time they have a sale, and yet they never seem to anticipate the problem.

It does surprise me that they don't scale up their server resources when they hold a big sale. It's not like they can't afford it.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

I'm looking at getting a couple of DLC for EU IV and Stellaris. However, they're cheaper on Green Man Gaming by about $1.50.


Here at ACD, we all pee the same color.

I may add a couple of DCL items for Train Simulator. Not much else takes my fancy.
