If you loved Final Fantasy Tactics, I highly recommend Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark, just released yesterday and has 15% off. May seem a little pricey but it's worth every penny.

Indeed. I'm holding out hope.

I would have bought FH4 VIP except this is the first Forza game where the VIP gives you a poverty crown symbol unless you buy it along with the Ultimate pack at the same time. Only the Ultimate users are the real VIPs. So they should really label this version Poverty VIP, or Second Class not-quite-VIP.

I am very tempted to go for Borderlands: Remastered. That's a decent price for what I know will be an incredibly nostalgic experience that will also whet my appetite before BL3.

For some reason when I go to the Microsoft store, Little Nightmares Complete Edition is still full price. Is anybody else having this issue?

Why is Borderlands GOTY already on sale that is actually sickening
Completely normal this generation. Never buy anything full price. Most games drop 20% in sales within the first month and often up to 50% within the first 3 months after release. You can saves tons of money by getting off the hype train and getting on the patience train.

Table says Fortune Island for Forza Horizon 4 is on sale, but it's actually the Expansion Pass on sale, which gives you Fortune Island + the second (as yet unreleased) expansion.
It's listed in the bundles section, as a bundle that contains Fortune Island and as yet nothing else. If it was just Fortune Island it would be listed in the DLC section. I know that can be confusing.

I've just priced it up so I know which country I will buy it from, and thought I would share for anyone else who is interested:

$19.99 CAD = $23.40 NZD (@ 5% Tax)
$17.49 USD = $26.20 NZD (@ 0% Tax)
£14.37 GBP = $27.96 NZD
€17.49 EUR = $29.37 NZD
$28.47 AUD = $30.08 NZD
$34.95 NZD = $34.95 NZD

As usual New Zealand is the most expensive place in the world to buy games. It's not just a little bit more than Europe and Australia, it's $5 more and $11 more than Canada.

What is even more stupid, is the expansions cost $29.90 each ($59.80 for both) or you can pay $69.90 for the expansion pass to {#}Get two game expansions at a reduced price!{#} angry

Claiming something is a reduced price, and then charging an extra $10 should be an illegal practice in any country. If the expansion pass was $59.79 (saving you $0.01), then it would be $29.89 NZD in the sale which would be more in line with other countries.
Exactly. I hate that Microsoft does that and I wish they could be taken in court for that matter.
Skyward is the real #1 for Naruto Shinobi Strikers. Hopefully TA will fix that EXPEDITIOUSLY.

Black Mirror really tempting. That's a massive discount. And Call of Cthulhu. All I'm waiting for now is Agony to go on sale. With the recent patch and work they have done to the game, the reviews are better and will be worth a look.

If you haven't played it, NOT A HERO is a very enjoyable game, quite an easy completion too if that's your thing.

Picked up Black Mirror and Nier Automata smile I feel bad for anyone who bought Borderlands Game of the Year when it came out.

Will the FH3 Expansion Pass give me access to all DLC and associated achievements?

Thanks

Is $30 a good enough price to pick up Hitman 2 or should I hold out for better later in the year?

I'm on the I-have-a-ridiculous-backlog-so-there's-no-reason-to-pay-full-price-for-anything train. Doesn't have as nice a ring to it though smile

I would not hold your breath, it was used as a pre order incentive, they will hold out until its about to be delisted if your lucky, anything else depreciates its point of creation as a marketing con.

Either you learn to abide by their rules and pre order, pay full price or teach them a lesson and stop buying pretty much altogether. I'm very much leaning towards the latter as I have had enough of the games industry particularly publishers and developers taking their customer base for granted as nothing but idiotic cash cows.

If by "quite some time" you mean until the next sale in a week or two, then yes. wink
