    Ironic that this comes out at a time of a global toilet paper shortage. This cannot be a coincidence, though some of you will probably say…

    No shit, Sherlock

    • There’s no shortage of toilet paper… it’s just the logistics lagging behind causing the supply to not meet the demand.

        Don't mind me, was a crap joke.

      • logistics lagging behind causing the supply to not meet the demand

        Isn't that the definition of a shortage?

        • +2

          There’s heaps of toilet paper production in Australia, it’s just the transport can’t cope into distributing it to the supermarkets.

  • Nice find Lysander! I've always wanted a Sherlock Holmes game but was looking at "The Devil's Daughter".
    Perfect timing since I've just finished World War Z. :D

    Gang of Four is also free on Steam today!

    Played "The Devil's Daughter" and loved it. Been wanting this for a while. Good thing I waited.

  • Really enjoyed this game, worth a get!

    Unpopular opinion perhaps, but personally would much rather these deals get posted once they're available, due reduce the risk of missing it. Speaking as someone that just browses by /deals.

    Thanks though, appreciate your efforts.

      There is a reminder function you can use (under bookmark).
      Plus I normally post a reminder in the thread for the new post.
      Finally, how would you feel if you purchased Sherlock Holmes: Crime and Punishment today and then next week you see you could have had it for free?
      Posting it now has the advantage of (a) people not buying a game they can have free next week and (b) something to look forward to, especially in these times.

      • You can ask for it to be highlighted on the front page when it becomes available too.

          It already is every week - once in the morning of the first day and once in the evening.

      • I see. Fair enough.

        Thanks for the tip.

      It is not an unpopular opinion. Literally every single week, somebody has been bringing up what you recommended in the last two years on epic games freebie posts.
