Attack on Titan 2 (AOT 2) at €34.99 instead of €69.99
Here is a rather special case: if the applied promotion is suitable but not exceptional, you should know that Attack on Titan 2 is… one of the least common and most difficult games to find in the box version on Nintendo Switch. So, as required by the (sad) law of the market, the physical edition of the title published by Koei-Tecmo almost impossible to find at a good price, and it is better to refer to the dematerialized to play it at a fair price. This is mainly where the 50% reduction applied here lies, allowing you to enjoy this wonderful action game that received a score of 16/20 in JV. As a reminder, Attack on Titan 2 is based on the popular anime inspired by the manga by Hajime Isayama, set after the events of Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom and picked up the events of Season 2 of the anime.

Outlast 2, a direct sequel to… Outlast, is a first-person survival-horror acclaimed for its particularly anxiety-inducing aspect. You play as cameraman Blake Langermann, along with his wife Lynn, who investigates stories as mysterious as these, and in this case the killing of an unidentified pregnant girl. Do you still want ? The publisher’s description states that the investigation “takes you deep into the Arizona desert, into a darkness so deep that no one can escape it, a corruption like madness is likely to be your only refuge.” » Outlast 2 is a stiflingly paced title that keeps its promises well in its field, without being too important to its genre. (as indicated by our 14/20 from its release in 2018), but at such a low price, admit that it is tempting to give in to the desire to live a disgusting experience!
