    Holy crappy DLC (and free-to-play/nearly-free-to-play crap)

    EDIT: Some decent first-party games in there though (Sunset Overdrive, Hellblade (if it's considered "first-party" now), Recore, Quantum Break, etc.), but I am still yearning for Black Friday sales so I have way more choices AND because I get to hear people complain about it being the same games over and over. I mean, they're partially right, but they're partially wrong.

    Random thought: I miss the 1st-half of the 360 generation, when game companies were only just beginning to learn how to rip us off by just withholding part of a game only to tag it as DLC later on to get you to pay more money, compared to current times where everything is bloated with microtransactions.

    it kind of perturbs me when a pack with the game and dlc goes on sale, but not the dlc individually. Case in point Ryse dlc is in a pack with the digital version of the game, but not the dlc by itself. I really don't want to pay for a digital version of the game twice, and they aren't going to subtract out the pieces i already own (like steam does)

    Same thoughts here for Forza Horizon 4, been waiting for the LEGO pack to go on sale since it released and got excited when I seen the bundles were on sale but nope.

    If the LEGO pack's anywhere around the same length as Fortune Island then buying it on sale's all it deserves, I felt bummed paying £7.49 for FI with how short it was, would have been furious if I'd paid the whole £14.99.

    Anyone played Pankapu? Looks like a good enough price I might get it.

    Uh, Happy Tickets on sale?

    Happy Wars servers have been closed in Dec 2018...

    Am I missing something or is this a bold move to rip off some money? smile

    Really wish that damn Hoonigan Pack for FH3 would go on sale by itself. Only ever seems to be in a bundle roll

    The more time passes the more sure I am it never will be, possibly due to licensing/brand value. IIRC (and I may not) there were Porsche DLC's that were never discounted on a past FM title too.

    Thinking about Sunset Overdrive, but really just looking for the season pass only. I know that goes on sale for around $6. Already have the game from GwG, but wouldn't mind owning it outright.

    Windows sales! Going to nab some Pinball FX3 DLC and Sunset Overdrive I think.
    Hooray for Windows 10!

    Still waiting for Ethan Carter to go on sale..

    If you're not interested in Gamepass then a lot of the prices for Microsoft games are pretty good. Quantum Break and Crackdown 3 being personal favorites.
