    Mafia 3 € 9.89 .... they should give € 9.89 and Mafia 3 for free. That game is way too broken to even be played.
    I bought the trilogy a few months back on sale and not long started 3, had no issues so far. Without spoilers (if possible) can you explain what I need to look out for? headspin
    Like with most games that have achievement issues, make sure to turn off quick resume and always fully close the game. But that's a console issue, not a game issue.
    It is a game problem in this case. I played Mafia 3 back in 2016 with no "achievement" issue but the re-release of it in the form of Definitive Edition caused some problems. last time I contacted the devs they were working on a fix.
    I sometimes wonder, I'm hunting achievements or they're haunting me?

    Achievements not unlocking ... and buildings with no walls and roofs. The doorframe, door and the furniture would just be there :) ... to me it's terrible, I didn't even finish it ... it's a terrible mess.

    That’s what their Twitter says.

    That is about the most miserable weekly 'sale' that I've seen on XBOX, both in terms of the selection and the discounts. And one item of DLC included?! Thanks, MS....

    For those wondering, there's at least 2 "collectible" achievements that have their progress reset upon the game closing, so you have to get them all in one sitting, which could take around 6 hours I believe. However the game is prone to crashing so it's very luck based.

    Ah the surge double pack on sale again, i own the first, wanting the the deluxe edition of the 2nd. Or the season pass, but it feels weird buying dlc for a game on game pass when it can be removed at any point, worth future proofing myself with the deluxe when that comes on sale?

    I would love to see a face off between Bound By Flame and Faery Legends of Avalon to see who has been on sale the most.

    Rubbish sale, I wonder if another big sale is incoming, as this is worse than the sales before the Deals Unlocked sale dropped later in the week.

    sad to see so many people complaining about sales lists.
    they would deserve a world without sales lists.
    talk about spoiled brats.

    I do think most Assassin's Creed, Far Cry and Tom Clancy Games have a big shot at this aswell

    Whoops! I had no idea what sort of controversy I would cause by posting those links. In the future, I won’t post links to those sites unless someone asks me specifically.

    Seasons after the Fall (in the bundle) is an adorable little game, short, well done, definitely worth picking up at that price, you could get through it tomorrow if you wanted. I’ve never played Shiness (also in the bundle), I’m sure it’s alright, but Seasons is worth it all by itself, imo.
    Sweet, already beat Shiness but I'll pick up Seasons after Fall for that price.
    Don't bro me if you don't know me.

    While there aren't many great games in this week's sale, if you're solely looking for Gamerscore, there's 3 games on this list for under $5 which can earn you a total of 3000 Gamerscore. The only one that seems to take a bit of skill, is Dead Dungeon, some levels seem moderately challenging but nothing overly difficult. With that being said, after doing some research on these games, I might pick them up myself. Also, Dead Dungeon is similar to Super Meat Boy but seems to be a lot less brutal and extreme.

    1. Cruz Brothers - $1.19
    2. Dead Dungeon - $1.99
    3. Manual Samuel - $1.49

    Total: $4.67 +tax
