    Am I reading it wrong or is the Shadow of War definitive edition a dollar less than the standard edition, which it includes?!

    I have a question. I know that Gamepass offers a discount on games that you buy from their library. Do you get an additional discount as a gamepass subscriber for the games currently on sale with Deals with Gold.

    I played part of the Return to Arkham series on gamepass, but I am thinking of buying it outright. Will I get an additional discount to the $7.99 that it is currently selling for on the above sale?

    AC games were some of my favorites, but didn't have a chance to play the last 3 or 4 of them. Guess I'll go in on them right now. I would like to complete the Lego Collection at some point, but I feel like they rotate in as free games so much it isn't worth purchasing..

    In my opinion, Rogue, Black Flag, Unity and Syndicate are the best titles in the series. Ezio is an awesome character, but the AC gameplay really hit its stride with Rogue/BF, and was improved in every way with the next two. Syndicate also has the best characters since Ezio.

    FWIW, you might want to check CDKeys before buying. I think Unity has been about $2 for ages.

    I don't believe you get any additional discounts for Game Pass games being on sale with Deals with Gold, even if you are both Gold Member and Game Pass member. You would just select the lowest price, probably the Deals with Gold price, since game pass discount is usually only 20%.
    Warmest regards, TwistedTB.

    That is what I thought and sort of confirmed when I tried to buy the game. Thanks.

    I got Lego DC Super-villains last week at Target for $40 because I got Target gift cards for my birthday.

    A lot of the achievements are broken. The game has an issue, where when you turn off the console the achievement trackers reset. That makes some of the achievements borderline impossible, as some of them require like 50 hours or so to complete since this is a long game and the loading times are atrocious.
    I picked up Pillars some time ago but have been reluctant to start it for this very reason, and its still unpatched. Wish there was some way of MS pressuring them to fix it.

    Am tired of buggy PC ports on Xbox One, am looking at you Titan Quest...

    Okay, this says that Injustice 2 for Win 10 is on sale, but the page I'm taken to says that it's not yet. Is this wrong, or is Xbox Live f*cking up?

    It was GWG a while back, but they changed the game and relisted it. Anyone who owned the original version was able to download the new one for free.

    Oh, thank you for the clarification. So it is (almost) exactly the same game as Festival of Magic? I was wondering anyway why it's not a series.

    Essentially. Here's the news snippet we had on it with a better description.
