    Not sure if it’s a mistake on Microsoft end but Frontlines Fuel of War is FREE to download. Just looked it up on the store on Xbox one and it says it’s 100% free with gold I live in UK so if you want game check in your region if it’s free
    Yep free here in the UK just got it, thanks for heads up.

    Yeah, I agree. Even though Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy and Yakuza games are on Game Pass I bought them all (except FF8, FF 13 trilogy and Yakuza Kiwami 2) to support it. Microsoft probably paid for those to get ported but I love them all and want more Japanese games on Xbox. I hope they continue to bring more.
    Same here and good move (except for Kiwami 2)!!
    Well, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is on my backlog and I don't wanna buy it before I finish the Kiwami. It's not because I don't like it :D

    Is the Titan Quest DLC any good? I'm tempted by it, but for the two it's more than I paid for the base game.

    To the XCOM fans out there, has anyone given Element Space a shot?

    Firstly,

    It is a shame that Football Manager has seen such a sharp decrease in price already for the Xbox One version. It means that we may not get Football Manager games again for the coming years.

    That being said, I am also waiting for it to go on Game Pass. Sega is good for Game Pass and the previous games have been on PC Game Pass.

    So, now I am torn. Do I support the game franchise and encourage future development, or do I save money, get it on Game Pass, and buy it when the game is delisted a year from now for a steep discount?
    Is unscientific but already there are more TA players of 2021 than of both 20 and 19. Personally I bought 2021 last week (annoying as i could have saved £6!) and my advice would be get it whilst it’s on sale. If you want the completion it’s nice to not be time bound while it’s in GP and for this type of game, more commonly than not, you’ll get your money’s worth through hundreds of hours of playtime!

    I don’t know if they are good I did buy them in sale last year then found it that both dlcs have unobtainable achievements.

    49 cents is still massively overpriced for dynamite fishing.
    Had 54 cents that were about to expire next week, got that game instead of letting it expire

    Rebel Cops is better than it sounds. It's a spin off of This Is The Police, a series which is surprisingly good. I highly recommend it.

    I bought it under similar circumstances years ago and it’s still sitting around in uninstalled limbo. I don’t think I’d ever touch it but you did the smart thing, not letting Microsoft keep your change!
    Always number 2.

    Do you think Kingdoms of Amalur: Rereckoning will end up on Gamepass soon? I played some of it over the weekend as it was free to play and it brought back good memories of playing the original way back when. I'm not sure if I want to fork out $42 (AU) for it though. But then if this is the only time it'll be on special for a while and it won't go to GP then it might be worth it.
    I've been considering the same but I think I'll wait a bit. Eventually it will go on sale for the same or more discount, and I can wait a few more months to play it, even though it was one of my fave games on the 360. Also, I want to wait until the Fatesworn DLC comes out to decide if it's worth buying that as well.
    Yeah, I think I'm going to do the same thing. It's bound to get cheaper, surely. I only got to the first main part of the game after the 'prologue' bit so I can wait a bit longer.

    What’s with the pricing on ‘We Sing Pop’. ?! The last time this game was on sale in January 2020 it was 85% off priced at £3.59 / $4.49 and the same price in January 2019. Now, a year later it’s double the sale price at 70% off priced at £7.19 / $8.99 😡

    Is Daymare 1998 worth it?
    I'd like to know the answer to this question as well. After reading the critic and user reviews on Metacritic I think I'm going wait for a further discount in a future sale before I take the plunge! This was 40% off in August 2020 and now 60% off.

    Yeah, that's exactly why I didn' get it. it seems to be going down with each sale. I reckon It can reach 6.99 or even lower at some point
    I sometimes wonder, I'm hunting achievements or they're haunting me...
