    Dang. With a huge backlog (like everyone else here), Games Pass and Games with Gold, someone please explain why I'm seriously considering buying more games that I may never get around to p!ay.

    What a terrible sorry-ass excuse of a sale. First time in forever where literally nothing peaks my interest.

    FYI : The article includes the spring sale and the weekly sale.
    THIS is the spring sale?!?!? You're kidding I hope?

    For those who like tower defense games, or that would like to try a high quality tower defense game, I highly recommend Defense Grid 2, at $2.25 it's a steal. On top of just being a fun and engaging game, 800 or so of the Gamerscore is pretty easy to get.

    Luckily I don’t have a gold membership, I’d be broke otherwise. Although only Cuphead has my interest, no DLC for WatchDogs 2 unfortunately.

    Is anyone else at a point where they wait until Black Friday to buy games because their backlog is so massive now? I'm just playing what I've got atm. Only really looking forward to state of decay 2 this year so I pre ordered that. Some of the AAA games that came out recently I'll pick up at the end of the year.
    I've been experiencing severe financial trouble since last summer so have been buying nothing (I had a little credit earned on my account so I did buy the $6 Titanfall 2 Ultimate Edition this past week, only game since last summer). I literally have almost 400 games that can be downloaded to my XBox One at any time. I can assure you if you've been an addict for long enough you can take 1-2 years off and still not run out of things to play. After that time the games you missed will be about $5-10, you could spend under $100 and still be playing like mad for the next year, rinse and repeat.

    The video game industry does need launch day buyers, and some games are more fun if you're in since launch, but I personally feel I've been a launch day buyer for so long (plus picking up tons of sales for almost everything) that I've done my duty, even when I get more flush with cash I probably won't get anything for awhile. I really want to play AC Origins and Shadow of Mordor 2, but I still have the latest Batman in my backlog, as an example, I'm set for a long time, so long as I can afford to keep Gold going.

    Just Elex, Mafia 3, Dishonored collection and Metal Gear Solid V + Ground Zeroes bundle for me, but that added up.

    The xbox 360 equally broke my bank, as i bought alot more, but at lower prices. It still tallied up to about the same as the xbox one sale in terms of bank-breaking.

    Ah, this is the week where I'd normally stock up on the Pinball FX tables I'm missing. But then I remember the crap they pulled with the FX2 DLC and my pledge never to give Zen Studios another penny of my hard earned. Might throw it at a couple of the cheaper indie titles instead and help a developer that cares about its fans.

    Wow a lot of this stuff was the same price last year. The spring sale used to be the best one of the year what happened. I’m not here to be THAT GUY I’m just shocked by the redundancy. Sure there are things to grab off the list that are good just a bunch of the same prices really surprises me after a year. Happy hunting everyone.

    Prices on europe are ridicoulous, i was interested on Batman Return to Arkham but it cost 10$ on usa and 25€ here?? Thats more than triple!
    With these prices is much more cheaper buying physical games

    I dislike long lists, it just ends up overwhelming me and I don't do anything laugh Backlog likes it though, I almost don't buy anything anymore thanks to GWG giving me games faster than I can complete them...

    I think most of the sale prices are pretty bad tbh, won't be picking anything up

    The blog post by Major Nelson actually says the spring sale goes through April 9th so there's an extra week. Games with gold should be announced within the next 48 hours so there's no reason to rush out and buy stuff that could end up being free.

    Will probably pick up Hand of Fate & The Final Station dlc. (DLC I want actually on sale individually!)

    A few other games that are tempting but I still have so much in my backlog I'll probably wait.

    forza horizon 3 expansion is not on this list but its $20 US.it was cheaper christmas sale but i think ican justify that purchase now i can finally start it after i mop up forza 2. also punch club looks very interesting, looks like it has alot of old school movie and culture references like mickey from rocky and some ninja turtle stuff to name a few.

    Every cheap game seems a bit long for me, so I may just get the DLC for The Final Station.

    Hold the fucking phone.

    $10 for Batman Return to Arkham in America but £20 in the UK?

    That's not how exchange rates work Warner Bros!
