I have many many games on my watch-list.

Stand-outs I can think of offhand that haven't come cheap enough yet are:
Oceanhorn
X-Com
Autumn Dynasty (I refuse to buy the $1/1/1 games)
Deus Ex (ditto)
The Room 2
Infinity Blade 3
Carcassonne
Smallworld

Deus Ex is already on sale for .99, and Xcom is 50% off.

Deus Ex is at that unfair 1/1/$1 pricing tier that penalises non-Americans so I refuse to buy it.

Even at 50% off, X-Com is more expensive than I'm willing to pay for a game I'm not sure I'll really like.

........... Really? Not buying Deus ex because you'll have to pay a few cents extra? Your loss

I'm not fussed about the price difference. I'd have considered buying it at the $2/1.50 pricing tier. I just refuse to cooperate with this tier that's seemingly set up to punish non-Americans.

I get your point slightly. It is unfair that non-Us customers pay a fraction more but when games are sooooo cheap (compared to games I bought in the 80s or 90s) it seems very petty to get upset over 30p (50c)

It does, but as long as I've got a mile high pile of games I haven't even tried yet I'll stick to my principles.

After little inferno went on sale, I was hoping we would see an influx of Xmas sales..but instead a tumbleweed flies by.
😩

Oh well, least the lockout is almost over.
I'm bored already. I need more app icons to collect and never play!

Waiting on: Tengami, Heroki, Gelato mania 2, Feed me oil 2, Cut the rope 2
