No ea sale, no gameloft sale , no console type games like the oddworld games sale . I hadn't been keeping up with the App Store for a year or two but is this common now ?

What? Waking Mars and Grim Fandango are both on sale from the top of my head. It's just that many large developers are no longer participating since their current focus is freemuim games.

You're probably just tunnel-visioning on the ones you wanted the prices to drop coz there's a 2k sale, a square enix sale, as well as specific titles like This War of Mine, Anomaly series, Sproggiwood, Sine Mora, I Am Bread (and most of Bossa's games), Grim Fandango, Goat Simulator series, Broken Sword 5, various Star Wars titles (permanent unlocks), Baldur's Gate titles (including IWD), LEGO titles, Tiger Style's titles, Supergiant Games' titles, Amazon Game Studios' titles, Heroes of Might & Magic 3, Dont Starve, Duck Tales, SE's GO series, and there's Double Fine's titles.

I dont think those are "extremely underwhelming" at all.

Quality, most definitely. Greedy, well, that too (but can be subjective :P).

I didn't see a problem with the Christmas sales, other than I already have much of what I wanted from before. I bought two whole apps and spent only a couple bucks. I spent much more last month.

You opened up two threads like this and think too negative about iOS gaming!
There are so many good games out there that are worth buying.
I'm outta here, peace!
