    Doom Eternal the only game I'm wanting here, just feel like it'll be a game pass game soon enough so I'll hold back.

    Picked up Greedfall from that sale minutes after it started, I'll get around to trying it later. Hopefully once the risk of a thunderstorm has passed.
    I've been curious about it but haven't seen much said about it, hope it was worth buying.

    Why does people think that FH3 is getting delisted? Have I missed something? :-/
    Last 4 years in a row you've had a Forza game go on GwG in August/September and had massive discounts on the DLC packs. The next month the game and the DLC gets delisted from the store.
    It's happened to FH1, FM5, FH2 and FM6 so this year should be FH3's turn if the pattern continues.
    It all started with FM2. I warned people about FM3, and a week later it was gone.

    They usually licence the cars from the manufacturers for 4 years - so 27th Sep 2020.

    I picked up Genesis Alpha One never heard of it before. If you like reasource management/base building games with alien critters and Alien Isolation style you might fancy it.

    This is true, seems like FM2, FM3 and FM4 all had similar issues. In those cases I don't believe they ever had digital versions of the games so never went on GwG or got delisted but FM4 had a DLC pack with achievements delisted and all 3 of them along with FM5 and FH1 had server shutdowns that affected community/auction-house achievements.

    The main point is that if you have any interest in getting hold of FH3 digitally or its DLC packs it might be in your interests to do it fairly soon. Although if the pattern from the previous 4 years/games holds then the game could be free with GwG in September and any paid DLC should be on a decent discount.

    It also may be worth mentioning that FH3 does have a handful of achievements related to the auction house and community created content which could possibly become unobtainable like similar achievements did in a number of previous games.
    Remember when RoboCop shot that dude in the dick?

    I wouldn't rely on getting Forza Horizon 3 via GwG if wanting to keep forever (assuming it goes GwG). We had major issues trying to re-download Forza Horizon 2 despite having obtained it via GwG previously. It simply doesn't appear in the Ready to Install list. The only way I was able to get it onto my Xbox was to copy it from another Xbox in my household...
    I had the same problem with Forza Horizon 1. I remember claiming the game with GWG and then uninstalling it, but years later I couldn't find it in my download list so now I don't have a copy anymore and MS refuses to add it when asked.

    I will just keep Forza Horizon 2 which I also got with GWG on my Xbox downloaded to prevent that from happening to that as well.

    I just checked my Games with Gold library as well and Forza Horizon 2 is missing as well from the Games with Gold list but surprisingly it is on my owned list even though I never bought it.

    Mondays at work are always slow and I find myself hitting refresh just to see whats on sale. Blacksand is on my wishlist....
    Your comment made me look at the game; looks pretty cool actually
    Glad I could help. No way in hell was I paying 40 for it, don't know if ill spend 20s on it. ShaqFu was the last game I bought at 20 but that game was surprisingly really fun an included minimal mop up.

    Blacksad ist tempting.
    But I hate to play a storydriven game several times to get all achievements. A story is a story and should have a clear and defined end.

    Dude, yea!
    Ty I was about to check out Greedfall when I saw its publisher is Focus Home Entertainment. They are involved in a scandal ATM about stealing the game Aeon Must Die from its dev team. Gonna have to hard pass and get this game used. Morals SUCK
