    Koding said:From what I know/heard both give you the same amount of replayability. That is to say none.

    If you're a completionist you'll have to run through Far Cry 5 again on an insane or something like that mode. The Vietnam DLC you have to do 3 times different ways, Mars one is once through if you complete everything else before the final mission. I haven't messed about with the zombie one but think it's like 7 separate mini levels.

    New Dawn I just bought and finished in the past month. I wasn't an early adopter because it just seemed like a Blood Dragon where it was pretty obvious the game was an idea board DLC that they knew they could milk some money out of so turned it into it's own thing. I wish I'd played them back to back now as it brings you back to a lot of locations from 5.

    RDR2 I've not played and probably won't til well into next year. No single player DLC will be released and people either love or hate RDO there doesn't seem to be much middle ground opinion of it.

    People are saying they've been getting refunds in this thread. Go to https://account.microsoft.com/billing/orders and there should be an option to request a refund. As long as you haven't played it and state your case they'll probably give it you.

    Yeah I was interested in getting Batman Telltale in the current sale but held off while waiting for the Games with Gold announcement.

    Pretty happy with this months's games with gold as a result.

    Try to get a refund. They are usually pretty good for that if you haven't played it yet and if you just bought it.

    Too many games, too little time. I'll look again if we put up a 'Here are the 25 easiest/quickest completions' story though.

    I recommend people check out Deep Rock Galactic - one of the best games I've played this generation.

    Took some time to go through all this, but decided on... nothing.

    There are some bundles that still interest me, but I've seen them on sale over and over, so I don't feel the need to jump on any.

    Cool how Telltale Batman Season 1 is on sale, and the bundle of both seasons is on sale, but the second season alone isn't. WTF?
    Be careful I heard that the most recent texture pack update glitched all achievements in the game.

    An update that no one asked for:

    I bought the Scribblenauts Mega Pack and then refunded it immediately. I'm into games that are aimed at a younger audience when they can be enjoyed by all but this/these game/s will only really entertain a 12 and younger crowd, probably best suited for someone around eight or if you have kids in your life to play with.

    I have previously completed Hitman 2 and sold the disc. If I buy the expansion pass, will it let me play the expansion levels? Without the disc, the base levels are not available, but the legacy stuff from Hitman 1 works. I'm wondering if the expansion pass works the same way.

    I've read that by making the prologue free, the store gets confused and thinks you have the base game. Can anyone confirm if they have the expansion working without the disc?

    Thanks
