    How can The Dark Eye Bundle even be sold? The game isn't even working fully and the developers aren't fixing achievement glitches. Apparently the story for one of the games can't even be completed!
    There is always a way.

    We Happy Few has been priced well enough now to get it. While reviews were lukewarm I am willing to take the gamble along with some easy Eastasiasoft games.
    What gamble? Game is on GP. There is no gambling. If you don't have GP get it for 1usd even if you need an alternate account.
    I know that. But I am one of those persons who wants to complete a game as much as possible, also having the season pass. On Game Pass it is still without any DLC content so I am not willing to pay 30 bucks for a seperate piece of season pass. :D

    Rocksmith 2014 is great. A little surprised licensing isn't a problem with the songs at this point in time.

    I have enjoyed what I have played so far. It's like Bioshock Infinate in a post war England. The main character is pretty dumb and says some pretty stupidly funny shit. So imagine Booker Dewitt on drugs and there ya go. Think it's worth the gamble. If your playing it on a Series X it's pretty fking gorgeous. Disclaimer thou it freezes at the press start screen on my gaming PC which is pretty odd it not only freezes the game but locks up the whole PC. Never gotten it to work and my PC can play Gears 4 on Ultra settings so its not on my end some somethings fked with the PC version.

    Enjoy

    Yeah, I'm going to pick up We Happy Few. With XSX optimization and all that DLC included, it's worth it.

    It may not be available thru Xbox marketplace, but if you purchase on Microsoft store, I think you SHOULD be able to download onto the 360 after the fact. I believe I’ve done this for a couple of games like this but not sure if I had done for games delisted from the 360 marketplace.

    It has a trial available so you should be able to download that at least, purchase the full version via MS store and I would think you should have a fully functioning version that way

    That Bear With Me game, do we have to buy the collection to get the full 1195 G?

    If you look on the game page, it shows that the Lost Robots is worth 1000 G and the complete collection DLC is worth 195 G. So to answer your question, yes. To get the full 1195 G, you must also have the full collection dlc.

    Eh... screw it, finally getting around to Stick of Truth.
    Has anyone tried Vaporum? Caught a glimpse of it on Steam. Reminded me of Fallout.
    Vaporum is a punk version of Legend of Grimrock. Old school grid-based movement and combat. Pretty fun and short but RPG elements, if you're interested, are very light. Combat is simple as you can literally hit enemies and move to next square before they react. Only challenge comes in when you are in small area with multiple enemies. Some interesting puzzles but nothing you haven't seen before.

    I'm starting the think I may have to pay full price for the Black Flag dlc. Have I been missing it when it goes on sale? Anyone remember the last time they seen it on sale?
    Believe me, Black Flag DLC isn't worth even $1 because of those annoying full synchronization with shitty bugs everywhere.
    I remember when I playing Freedom Cry, In every second I wish those damn achievements unlock faster so I can delete the game and get rid of it forever.
    After AC III, AC Black Flag is worst AC game I ever played and really never want to play again while I played AC Brotherhood and Revelations over 3 times in different accounts and devices and still enjoy replaying those.
    I do remember Blade Flag having some bugs, but nothing too major, aside from the bug with upgrading your ram on your ship cockblocking the full synchronization achievement.
    Revelations in the Ezio Collection has to be the most broken AC game. Countless glitches and bugs including hardlocking your console. It was freezing on me every 5 minutes, the only tip I could find is to set your Xbox to 720p and avoid certain areas. It's pretty assangry

    Maybe I'm lucky but I never seen any crash in AC Revelations in my Xbox One S even with 2160p output settings.
    Only thing I hate about Revelations is those Desmond sequences and The Lost Archive DLC.
    And about Black Flag you misunderstood me, I never say original game was bad or buggy I say Freedom Cry DLC was awful but main game was okay.
    I wish I had money to escape from fucking Iran.
