    I highly recommend Jet Car Stunts for Xbox One. It has a bit of a learning curve when it comes to figuring out how to fly and turn and all that, but after a bit you will get the hang of it and then the game becomes totally addictive. I got all 1,000 Gamerscore from it and some of the Achievements were right there at the peak of how hard I think an Achievement should be and thus it had some of the most rewarding and memorable Achievements to get. The total number of them to unlock is small which makes them even more appealing, since they are worth a lot of Gamerscore each.

    Beyond all that though, it’s just a fun, creative game that captured my attention all the way until I 100%’d it. Leaderboards will be even more fun if you have friends that have played it.

        It’s less a demo, and more of a prequel. A demo would imply that you’re playing content that will be part of MGS5, which I don’t believe to be the case.

        Think of it like that small Dead Rising XBLA game they did before Dead Rising 3 came out, except not priced anywhere near as reasonably as that Dead Rising one was.

      It takes roughly 1 hour to beat the main mission and another 2 to beat the rest (maybe 3) but its one hell of a time, I managed to get 25+ hours out of it thanks to the small sandbox this game offers. Replay ability is great. if you wont replay it, skip.

      Most people only play MGS for the story and I finished that in under 40 minutes the first try. There are enough side missions and challenges built around it though and that can give quite a bit of gameplay value, well worth the 10 bucks, but if you only play for the story, stay away.

      Back in December of last year it was cheaper. $6.59 USD. I picked it up then and only barely touched it actually but thought it looked amazing. I found out that if you are really goal oriented and good at FPS/TPS games then you could cruise through it. However if you are plot and take your time you can stretch it into a longer game.

        i also got it in December too, i enjoyed the story mission ( finished it about 3 times), completed several side missions ( i like the kojima extraction mission), still haven’t collected all the badges or unlocked the raiden mission. i am definitely gonna get the MGS 5 PP a few months after release ( probably on 360 as well as the rise of the tombraider).

      I’m not sure what this sale brings it down to, but I’d say if you can get it for less than $10, and you’re interested in trying it out, it’s worth it. I grabbed it for like $7 during last year’s holiday sale, and I got $7 worth of enjoyment out of it (having never played a MGS game in my life), but it’s not worth much more than that.

        What psses me off is that the ‘Deluxe Upgrade’ on 360 is always going on sale, but on One it doesn’t – they clearly expect people on One to fork out for the full Deluxe Edition even though they’ve already purchased the main game.

        Also, Jaws of Hakkon has been out for ages now and STILL no sight of a price drop.

        With it going on sale, it might be about to show up in the EA Access vault. NHL15 went on sale a little bit ago and turned up in Access a month or so later. I don’t know if you’re on the One or not, but if you are, and aren’t dying to play Inquisition, it might be worth it to wait. That same $30 would buy you a year of Access, which for my money is the best deal in gaming.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition. – Only 33% cheaper than what you can pick it up on PC for, looks and plays worse on Xbox One too.
    There are a few PC sales which match/beat the Xbone price around the place if you know where to look.
    This just hammers home how much more expensive console gaming is though, even when games are on “sale”.

    $8 for Dragon Age 2 and $4.50 for Dragon Age Origins on Xbox 360 is so worth it, but really… Origins should have been $8 and Dragon Age 2 should have been $4.50 from a quality standpoint, but that’s nitpicking grab ’em if you haven’t played ’em!

      Every game is cheaper on PC. Look at the sales you can get on The Witcher 3 right now. Consoles are subsidized by how much the games are. You pay a little more for the games but you don’t drop over a grand on a system to play them on.

  • Mateus F. Zanatta

    Unfortunately, Dragon Age origins isn’t available in the brazilian marketplace. I would buy it otherwise.

    This is one of the problems with some sales (at least for people outside the US): some of the titles aren’t available in some countries and they are not replaced by other deals either. Then, you end up with a sale that has half or less of the games that are discounted and have less options to pick from.

    It’s not so bad when the sale has a lot of games, but when they put 3-4 titles on sale, then we might get only one or two discounted.

    I am still hoping halo: master chief collection will be on sale this month. My thinking is when the odst dlc comes out this month they will run a sale. But people sound wait on dragon age, well people that have EA Access. If you were thinking of getting this game, get EA access instead. I have a feeling in a few months or less it will be in the vault plus you get a lot of games to play until then. They are just trying to get whatever money they can with it right now.
