I see Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours has appeared on Steam, at the rather eye-watering price of £29.99. (Although apparently they're after £49.99 on PS4? :o )

A very positive review at Eurogamer - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015- ... urs-review

And well regarded (from a limited pool of reviews) at Metacritic - http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstat ... e-saviours

I'm a huge fan of the Darius arcade games (I remember first seeing the original immense three-screen cabinet at an arcade in Blackpool in the 80s and being totally blown away by it), and have revisited the whole series over the years for many, many hours in MAME. (Darius Gaiden in particular I can play and play and play.)

For £15 I'd probably have dived straight in with Chronicle Saviours, but £30 is a bit too rich for a single shmup. I've added it to my wishlist and will wait for a sale.

Never in the history of Steam has a game had 'more than half off in the next sale' written over it more than this one.

This is down to £23.99 already. Not long until it's a tenner, I reckon.

It's exactly £40 on Amazon Japan which now, incidentally, ships internationally. Interesting.

Why is Dariusburst still £30 on Steam? That's what I want to know.

It was down at £24 for a brief period of time but I'm targeting £15, or ideally a tenner.

I shouldn't be such a tightarse really but then again I do have an entire MAME-ful of fantastic shooters that I can play whenever I want.
