    Pass this week, though seeing the Civ VI expansion seemingly getting incrementally cheaper is nice. Hopefully just a few more months til everything is where I'm good with it. Quite a lot of DLC to purchase along with the base game.

    Sega Mega Drive Classics had some pretty bad Audio and shuttering issues when it came out. Can anyone let me know if they have been fixed since?
    I bought it three months ago on another weekly sale and I have no problems except when I play SEGA games more than like an hour then sometimes the bad audio problem happens and I have to save the game and then select it again from SEGA cartridges to make audio normal again.
    I have unlocked all of its achievements and this only happens two or three times for me.
    I wish I had money to escape from fucking Iran.

    Does anyone here buy a lot less games than they used to with GamePass? I had Blasphemous on my wishlist for a while, but I keep holding off thinking it will come to GP.
    Annoyingly yes lol. I legit want that game as well, but keep thinking it’d be a perfect gamepass addition. Still debating on it though, bc the little I payed this past weekend I FkN loved! rock
    Oh yea i don't buy unless i will play it right away for fear of it coming to GP

    Yeah I dont buy Square, Namco or Bethseda knowing that they will eventually arrive on gamepass. other than that, I have being buying way ever since I restricted my purchases to only buying at 70% off or more so that my backlog can stop piling up at a high rate.

    Halo Wars 2 Complete Edition is 60% off. So is the standard edition.
    Halo 5 is also on sale.

    Anyone here played Rad? I'm a big Double Fine fan, but I don't know if I would like this game. It seems to be a 3rd person action game with rogue lite elements, but I don't know how that translates to the actual gameplay, or if it is fun.
    I bought it at launch and would recommend it for the current price. I like the synth music, the whole retro aesthetic, the menu announcer guy. It's pretty hard for me, I haven't completed a run yet. I've done around two dozen or so and got to world 3-2. There are some accessibility options to make it easier, I haven't tried them yet.

    The gameplay loop is basic, you get dumped in a world and have to activate some towers to open a door to defeat the level boss. There are caves and overworld sections, tapes to collect (the currency), floppy disks to collect (keys to unlock chests). You gather radiation as you defeat enemies that grant you random mutations. In the cave sections there are giant statues that grant you perks.

    Some of the mutations are difficult to make proper use of but once in a while you get a set of powers that lets go deep. Later in the game you can get negative ones that hamper you. You don't seem to get any permanent character upgrades between runs. All of your progress seems tied to depositing money in the bank to let you use it in the field, buying stuff at the shop so there's more variety between runs, and there's a bar that fills up whenever you die that unlocks some stuff I honestly haven't paid enough attention to to tell you.

    It has a pretty high ratio and only 5 out of 1634 players on TA have completed all achievements, so I guess that's a consideration if you're into completion.
    Thanks for the info, you're the real MVP.
    Finally gaming on the One.

    I wanted to take a moment to shout out Taimumari: Complete Edition. I bought it on price and because I love checking out indie stuff and found it to be a real gem. The combat and magic is super satisfying, the jumping, dashing and air dashing all feel extremely tight and the story is actually kind of endearing.

    I figured it would just be a middling easy gamerscore game that lured people in with anime ladies and am happy to be wrong. I will definitely be checking out this developer's other games!
