    Is that Horse Racing game as bad as it sounds?
    Yes.



    Easy completion but at what cost to your dignity? I went "appearing offline" when I did so.
    Also you need to be able to mash a single button rapidly for a sustained period so it's slightly taxing on the hands. Really not worth it unless you want 1000 GS pretty badly.
    Always number 2.

    Anyone played Titan Quest recently? I know it was marred with bugs when it came out in 2018, but does anyone know if its been optimised? I'm tempted at $7.50

    Opened every game under $5 and Seasons After Fall looks like the one with a short completion that I'd actually enjoy so one game for me this week after 13 last week. Wallet says thanks Microsoft
    Not a bad game. I finished it a couple weeks ago. Good platformer with the right amount of story length

    Honestly? i haven't been able to finish it because i found it so boring for some reason. visually its very nice but i just really have a hard time staying into the game long enough to finish it. The WT is also really well done too, i have no real reason for not being done yet

    Hmmm maybe I'll take another look or watch some gameplay. Haven't bought it yet but at the price will probably just go for it

    Horse Racing 2016 sucked out my soul more than any game has ever done, and I've played through a ton of crap. Hands down the worst game that has ever touched the Microsoft Store. It ain't worth it, save yourself.

    Anyone have opinions on Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom? Seems to always be on sale and been contemplating picking it up
    I really liked it, great music and many secrets /puzzles.

    The combat system is a little different but good imo.

    Pretty long game if you explore everything.

    It's awesome! The bus have been ironed out, but make sure you unlock the frame rate in the options.

    Anyone else notice ACA Neo Geo games haven't been on sale so far this year? I wonder if they had a year on a contract on those sale prices and it's over? Pretty much all of them really boosted my GS. I know they never really went on sale on the Playstation for like ever, so it was good that we at least got some of them to come down throughout the last year!

    I was gonna ask the same thing but SammyApples best me to it.

    What do you mean by unlock the frame rate in the options? What’s the significance of it? I did played it once 2 years ago by my guest account to see if I like it which I did but the achievement is so delayed that it took all night to unlocked 15 kills related achievement while had 30 or 50 kills achievement unlocked. So I’m afraid of not able to complete 1k Titan Quest due of buggy achievements.

    Opinions on Darksiders 3? I'm thinking of picking up the complete edition and going through the trilogy before Genesis comes out.

    You will save a few bucks by buying the base game and DLC separately on this sale.

    I haven't played it, though. Still have the 2nd and all DLC unplayed in the backlog. I heard that part 3 is very "Dark Souls" in gameplay style...so that might not be for everyone.
    State of the badass art.

    While the game is fun,i still experience a bug where when i fiddle with things in my bag,the game freezes(not the Xbox,just the game) and i have to dashboard and lose progress when i load my save file.
    My advice to you,save every 5 mins as you will reload often
