Finally, Turok 2 is on sale. I’m also thinking about checking out Voodoo Vince and a few others as well.
Thank you for mentioning it. I skipped it while looking at that list - twice.

Might finally get the X1 version of GTA V...
I was thinking that myself but I also think I might regret buying when it's really the same experience with slightly improved graphics. I mean, that money (and more importantly, time) could go on something new or one of the other games in my backlog. Kifflom brother brother.
Less work, more play!

I know I said I wouldn't buy anything else but The Crew 2 is pretty tempting, haven't sen anyone praise it though so I might wait a bit more to give the backlog some clearing.

Dead Cells and Life Is Strange S02 Ep1 are also really tempting me, oh god I have a problem.

Change ur region on Xbox.com to United States. You will need to buy currency online, which can be found almost anywhere. I’m sure G2A.com has codes. You can input the code even though it’s a different region, the currency will show up once you change your region. After purchasing, the game will show up in your ready to install section after changing your Xbox ones region to US.

Nothing else for me. Got everything I need right now !
MOTHERFUCKER! angry

After seeing that thing not go sale multiple times through special sales and despairing of it ever going on sale, I broke down and bought it a few weeks ago. And now the goddamn thing goes on sale.
Bummer to hear that, I have been waiting for it to go on a sale myself. I finally bought it yesterday.

Or are there better choices?

The Crew 2 is a decent game for the most part. I bought the collectors edition because it was relatively cheap by Ubisoft standards. I enjoyed my time with it. I love the different disciplines and how the game actually forces you to compete in them.

One of the main things I didn't like in some cases was the obviously rubberbanded AI. I'm not sure if it was addressed since launch or not, but the AI rubberbanding is very noticeable sadly, and in some races requires you to be perfect. The other thing that kind of sucked achievement wise was grinding for level 50 and maxing out your cars performance. I think I did the same race over and over again for a few hours to max it out. Thankfully it wasn't too bad as I didn't have anything else to do and needed to get to level 50.

Quick summary though, you level up your card with performance parts. These parts are randomly obtained after winning events/races/etc. The your performance index reflects how good the parts you get are. Sadly, the parts you get are random. I forget, but I couldn't for the life of me get max level brakes or something, yet I had max level tires, engines, etc coming out of my ass. In short, that achievement is random and may require some grinding.

Gameplay wise though I loved the game. It was a major improvement over The Crew 2. The collectors edition came with the Gold edition, so I'm kind of sad there's been no big content updates. This also doesn't compare to other open world racers such as Forza Horizon, and it's not perfect, however, I think if they decide to continue with The Crew series, this instalment is a big step in the right direction.

No, unless you're from a region that's not on Xbox you can't do that anymore. You have to use prepaid currency.

I don't get how RE7: Biohazard Gold Edition, a Play Anywhere title, has two different prices on both platforms.

Xbox One - $36.60

Win 10 - $37.47

But so far, I see about 15 games I want to buy. I'll probably only end up buying Yooka-Laylee because at $12.49, I would be crazy to ignore it.
