    Eh, nothing for me. For anyone interested in any of the “deals with gold” xbox one titles you can usually find them cheaper used.

    And you save some HD space. Just saying.
    Good deals!

      How do you save HD space? You have to install all disc based games on xbox one as well… so it’s the same as downloading it.

      • Komentra

        Because you can delete it and quickly reinstall it as opposed to dedicating hours to re-download a digital title.

        Makes sense to me. Unless it’s Dead Rising 3 which requires that ridiculous update even with the disc, ugh, terrible.

        Just signed in to my PSN and checked my purchase history I was a bit off it wasn’t $7.50 it was $10.50 (which is still a solid price). The PSN “super hero” sale was in late July.

        As for the X1 version it showed up at 40 for me then dropped to $30 after signing in. Logged out, signed back in and now it’s saying $23.99.

        Still pretty terrible in comparison.

        That’s odd because the sale price is $23.99 so I’m seeing the right price. Up top it says 40% discount which would make it $23.99 because the base price is $39.99.

    Well, nothing here for me this week.

    Unrelated:
    I’ve got some Microsoft credits that I need to use before next week (when they expire).
    I also want to take advantage of the Xbox Live Rewards promo (buy 3 games $59.99 by Nov 30 – get $20 back).
    So, which full price game should I buy?
    I love the Assassin’s Creed games – so maybe Mordor?
    I love racing games – so maybe Forza Horizon 2?
    I love survival horror games – so maybe Alien?
    Or maybe there’s another game recently released that would be worth the purchase?

    What do you guys think? What’s the general consensus?

    Like

    • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

      Honestly I can only speak to the xbox one versions but you can’t go wrong with either mordor or forza horizon 2. I’m just about to 100% shadow of mordor about 35 hours in and I’ve had a blast with it.

      I haven’t played forza as much but once I’m done of this I will definitely be jumping back in because what I have played is absolutely incredible. One of if not the best racing games I’ve ever played. I love how it’s just perfectly in the middle between Sim and arcade. It’s gorgeous, there’s a ton of cars, the campaign is actually really good and the online is fun.

      As for alien, I can’t help with that unfortunately. I bought it today, but haven’t had a chance to play it yet. I don’t like having too many games on the go at once.

      There’s also another one, not sure if it’s your type of thing or not but sherlock holmes released last week as well and it seems pretty cool. I’m yet to get into that either though.

      Hope I was able to help !🙂

      What the hell are you talking about “half the resolution”.
      Is resolution the only thing you consider buying a game, if so wait for the steam version to come out in 4K on ultra settings.
      The xbox one version runs at either 720p/900p which still looks pretty damm good.

    I don’t know anything about the Witcher series, but given the sale price, it’s more a question of time than $. I don’t usually like playing long games that take more than 25hrs, unless they have a great/fun story (Fallout3, ME series). Any strong arguments in favour of “Witcher 2”?

    Also, any recommendations for MK9? I used to play the MK series back in the 90’s, but I haven’t touched them in many, many years because my friends and I got into the Street Fighter series instead. However, for the price of a good beer, I’m thinking it would be worth it… thoughts?
