Yet because Steam has traditionally sold more big budget games like Nioh or Nier: Automata, a lot of users might be biding their time for June's Steam's Summer Sale and crossing their fingers.

If you live in one of over 200 countries and territories with regional pricing, you will receive the local-currency equivalent of $10 off during checkout for eligible purchases (the local-currency equivalent of the $14.99 minimum game price).

"Hey, we wanted to let you know Hades is now on sale for $14.99 after discounts on the Epic Games store".

In addition to the price cuts, Epic Games also announced that its fortnightly free games will be made weekly for the duration of the sale. All games over $14.99 are now $10 off "courtesy of Epic".

To get it, go to the Epic Games Store website and click the blue panel in the top-right corner that says "Get Epic Games". On a related note, if you bought a game between May 2 and May 15, Epic promises to refund you the difference in price between what you paid and what you would have paid if you'd done so during the sale.

This statement marks the latest flare-up in a recent string of controversies surrounding the topic, with a flurry of upcoming titles committing to become Epic Store exclusives.

Bayer's spokesman called the latest decision " excessive and unjustifiable ", saying that the company would appeal the verdict. The report, by WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer, said glyphosate is " probably carcinogenic to humans ".

Of course, don't forget that you get £10 (or $10) off nearly any game you buy (with the aforementioned caveats).

No, the promotional offer only applies to qualifying game purchases from the Epic Games store.

"We are delighted to present this year's Special Award to Epic Games", said Chair of BAFTA's Games Committee Dr Jo Twist OBE.

So yeah... apparently... things are not going smoothly for Epic's first Mega Sale! Up to this point, they've released a freebie once every two weeks but during the sale, you'll get a new game to try out each and every week.

To buy games on the Epic Games Store, you have to download the Epic Games Store client.

Epic have announced a new sale on their fledgling game store and it seems like you could pick up a bit of a bargain.
