    I'm quite interested by Thunder Wolves I haven't played any flying combat games on the Xbox and looks like that could be a fun little completion.

    However the only thing that puts me off is that it has CO OP achievements and it's getting increasingly difficult to find boosters for unpopular/lesser known 360 & XBLA titles.

    If anyone else is interested in playing the game just send me a PM before the end of the week and I'll get it purchased and we can set something up.
    Thunder Wolves is easy to 100% alone. The game is ok. A bit amateurish in my opinion.
    It's like they focused on dialogue instead of anything else roll

    If I buy Pac-Man CE DX+ on the microsoft.com store, can I play it on my 360? It is still 9.99 on the marketplace.

    I already have Sniper Ghost Warrior and dlc on PC but at those prices, I may as well get them on Xbox as well.

    I need the DLC for Far Cry 4 since I bought it last time it was on sale at a stupidly low price (way less than this sale, 8.99 probably not worth it), but let me guess, no DLC sale? Not that I would learn that info from the TA sale page, since their scanners no longer pick up that info. Just crap all around. All stuff that has been previously on sale for lower prices. Complete waste of time.
    I'm in the exact same boat. Bought FC4 at the same time as you. Season Pass is still $30 in Canada! And I bought the FC3 DLC on a great sale, but FC3 itself never goes on sale. Is listed at $20. Insane prices. Will get a used version on ebay for FC3, but I need that FC4 dlc to go on sale - can't justify $30 to finish it!

    Yeah I did Far Cry 3 on disc, you can probably find it cheap used. Same thing for Far Cry Instincts Predator for the people that wanted that. FC3 was a great game, but I don't think it had any DLC achievements? Its been a while I don't remember precisely. Unless the co-op mode was DLC? I got the remaster for X1, looking forward to playing that at some point.
    Warmest regards, TwistedTB.

    Thanks for the reply. Is there any source for your claim? I meant purchasing PAC-MAN CE DX+ from the desktop microsoft.com not from the xbox one browser. (I assume BC marketplace means microsoft.com.)

    The reason I ask, is that I redeemed Armed and Dangerous (GwG) on microsoft.com. It did not show as purchased on marketplace.xbox.com until I did that manually. Or is that just a weird thing with Games with Gold? I prefer scheduling downloads from my pc. If I didn't do the manual redemption, would I have been able to get it from my 360's download history/list anyway?

    DLC should follow the same principles, right? Sorry for the niche problem, but I am still playing only on the Xbox 360.

    I understand. My source is simply personal experience. There’s been several games purchased that were on sale via BC marketplace only that I was then able to go download via my Xbox 360 and they showed up as “download again”.

    I can't download the Avatar TLA TBE game. I have Gold and payment options and billing correctly. I'm on still Xbox 360 and what happen? My region is France for now with some reason...

    OK, I got the hint. I've bought and played Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. How about something else?

    Bought the Unravel Bundle. Looking forward to finally playing it, it always seemed like a cool game to me

    Cool game but with brutally hard achievements (Unravel 2).
    I managed to unlocked all achievements for Unravel 1 but I cannot unlock any of those Gold medals no matter how hard I try in Unravel 2.
    You're right, it's a cool game but as long as you don't care about achievements.
    I wish I had money to escape from fucking Iran.

    Well I do care about achievements lol, percentage then ratio are the TA stats I care most about. With that being said I care more about enjoying great games for the experience first. Then achievements hunt /complete second. I have heard that Unravel two had some really hard achievements, beating levels in certain times if I remember right. Great job completing Unravel 1! I will probably start it up fairly soon. I enjoy these types of games from time to time.

    What clinched the deal for me is when I tried playing the game on steam I encountered a glitch where the intro is upside down.

    There probably is a way to fix that glitch but I though why not just play it glitch free on my Xbox 360 at this bargain price.

    I was considering it but with EA Play being added to Gamepass Ultimate in a month or so, I know I will have to access to it by then.

    For those of you here that have GWG and Xbox One:

    Heads up, Trine 4 is FREE for GWG via the South Korea Microsoft site:
    https://slickdeals.net/share/iphone_app/fp/597110
    I claimed that a few days ago on Xbox. It was the only game in the Trine series I didn't have on either PC or Xbox, so I was really happy to get it for free.

    Thanks! Just went ahead and bought it before the sale ends tomorrow
