After the early January silence gaming get always, yesterday there were some interesting release.
I played one of it, so you can check a fast, ~3h Encodya walkthrough to see the game and check, so you decide about the purchase/wishlist or use it for hints if you got stuck:

Huniepop2 and Becastled released yesterday. Yay. But looks like i accidently humilated second game with a negative review yesterday, but I lost my mind when enemies walked through my castle walls:-D The game concept is still nice, but the price should be the price of the final product and they should increase to current one slowly after content patches.

Little Nightmares 2 release next. Ill probably play only Nebuchadnezzar from next releases and Room 4 once it is on sale.

Stronghold: Warlords is going to cost $59.99? I can already smell the negative reviews...

It had many previous release date and i swear there was once prepurchase available, but i cant find proof for that on archieved store pages, so perhaps i am wrong and added some known AAA price to the wrong line:-(
The boxed version available in my country for around 39.99$ but boxed versions usually reflect a bit to salary differences and those not on the overpriced EUR region level, unlike the digital versions. So it might be on that price or 49.99$.
