UGH SO MUCH GAMES. NOT ENOUGH GIL.

FFXV was the last game I purchased (at launch) and I can't afford anything now until next month. Luckily for me I managed to nab Lost Odyssey for free on the Xbox One store - I'm glad I've finally got the chance to play this!

I'll be trading / selling some games in for Horizon: Zero Dawn next month, as I need to play that game. Resident Evil 7 and Gravity Rush 2 will have to wait, as will Nier: Automata which releases about a week after Horizon. Then there's the first FFXV Episode DLC releasing at the end of March which I want to play before them.

To be honest I doubt I'll get around to playing most of these new games for a good few months.

I've heard mention of Humble Bundle before, but I've never actually looked it up to see what it was until now. I don't have a PC anyway, and it looks to only offer $ currency? So I assume it's not available in the UK.

It's available. It all just converts nice and easily. I got the Bandai-Namco bundle the other day for Project Cars (and I got one of the not-so-great Tales Of games, Zestiria, as a bonus).

As for your other quandry... just float around the world and collect precious gems. Then just trade the gems in for Gravity Rush 2, Easy peasy

It's always a good idea to check websites like craigslist or kijiji. I managed to pick up RE7 for $55 CAD used (where it would normally cost $90).

Alternatively, just wait a few months after the game's release. You can usually get it for $20-30 off.

There's some Mobile Bundle Humble Bundles but yeah they're for PC. You pay what you want for what you get. Of course they have tiers like if you spend $7 or more you get more stuff. But it's still usually never about $10ish.

If ever I get a PC (not in the near future) I'll keep humble bundle in mind. I'm definitely getting Horizon but after that maybe I'll crack out the PS3 and play some things that I missed last gen like the first Nier and the DLC for GTA IV. I'll find a copy of the game cheap enough. For now though I'm 12 hours in to Lost Odyssey and I'm enjoying it so much that with Horizon coming out soon I won't have time for anything else anyway.

Oh, also you should probably add Tales of Berseria to your list and bump it above pretty much everything else ;)

The demo didn't grip me, to be honest :/ also I never got around to completing either of the two previous Tales of games that I started (Graces f and Xillia).

You can save a lot of money by constantly being 6-10 months behind, and you'll still have a constant stream of "new" (to you) games to play. Find an older game you've wanted to play and soak a lot of time into that while waiting for new games to fall in price.

Personally, my problem is the opposite. I have way to many games and not enough time to play them all.
