    I'm not super big on platformers, but I guess with that price I'll finally get the Spyro games
    So it goes...

    I'm surprised that there are a couple of games I am actually considering. How tough is Asterix & Oblelix? I used to read the comics when I was little, so the nostalgia factor is high. I'm not looking for a challenge though.

    Edit: I didn't realize there are two Asterix & Obleix games on sale. Opnions on both are greatly appreciated.
    I have played XXL2 and for me was really enjoyable, I was waiting for XXL3 and XXL on discount. I liked the humour and story, beat 'em part is nice but might get a little monotonous after a while (not a problem for me though). I didn't manage to complete the title as one challenge is too difficult for me to beat (and I played on easy).
    Apart from completing challenges the game wasn't too challenging. Some platforming sections was challenging (and frustrating) but generally nice game when played on easy.

    EDIT: Before buying I tried PC demo (a few scenes up to about 5 minutes each) - might be a good idea to test it before.

    Not finding anything and not caring about it either has been nice for a change

    Should I buy NBA 2k21 now for $10 or wait for a lower price ?

    Some stuff here I want, but I have a hard time even justifying purchasing a game at 75% off any more. Too much in the backlog.

    Guess I'll add Ash of Gods: Redemption at 85% off.

    Thanks! I put a good bit of time into my personal database, manually inputting sales data based on TA & majornelson sites, in combo with way back machine archives of certain pages when something is unclear.

    Just dropping by to say Darksiders 3 is better than you’d expect (the DLC makes it a lot better and adds more flexible play styles due to the armor choices).

    Zombieland Double-Tap, on the other hand, is a blatant cash grab with nearly zero charm and it’s so buggy it makes Outriders launch week look stable by comparison. It’s really bad. If it ever comes back for a free play weekend, try it then first, don’t buy this turd.

    I'll say this every time: don't buy Guncraft unless you want to have your 360 on for hours and hours while you're at work or asleep because it's just one giant grind fest. Plus, getting 16 players (even with spilt-screen players) for one Achievement blows.

    Don't buy it. 😛

    This is serious dedication. Do you watch the best prices of xbox one games too?
    because for now the best source of information i know is xbox-store-checker.com

    I use xbdeals.net but I’m sure it’s very similar

    Not sure where else to post this, but does anyone know if the DLCs for the X360 Assassin's Creed games still go on sale? During the Publisher Sales maybe? The last one was in March but I didn't check back then. I kinda wanna complete the entire series, but the DLC is extremely overpriced, almost 100€ altogether.

    The ACIII DLC & AC IV (360) Season Pass last went on sale Mar 2020. Brotherhood DLC last went on sale Jan 2020. AC IV Freedom Cry (360) last went on sale 2/23/21. AC Revelations Lost Archive last went on sale 10/15/19.

    All the other DLC has been a very long time since last sale and unlikely to go on sale again.
