    Don't sleep on Dynamite Fishing if you are looking for the 2nd worst game to appear on the Xbox One.
    Whats the worst in your opinion? Im thinking about multiple titles
    Controversial opinion, but Witcher 3.

    But also some random game I downloaded called Captain Cat, I think. I mean, it was alright for a short while then it got repetitive. It comes nowhere close to Dynamite Fishing, though. Achievement hunters absolutely need to avoid Dynamite Fishing as there is no guidance on how to unlock achievements. Even the people that have unlocked achievements don't really seem to know how they unlocked them.

    Achievements like "Catch 666 Fish" are fine. That is easy to work out how to earn it.

    "Complete matches with the Viking Ship" or whatever...not so much. Like, you know how to unlock it but you don't know how many matches it takes. A good chunk of the achievements in the game are like that. Just completely non-descriptive and no way to track how close you are to them. I hate that.

    I wonder if the dev fixed the XOne version of Ghost of a Tale, since I last played it while staying at a friend's, a year or so ago (around the time a box version was announced, I think). Back then, the Xbox version was a glitchy mess, which tended to crash and lag a lot after a 4 or 5 hours of gameplay, bordering on unplayable.

    Hopefully, he released a couple of patches since then, but his focus, for the past year and a half, has mostly been the Switch version, so who knows...

    Got hooked on Artifex Mundi games when they were regularly on sale. Wish a few would pop up in the sales again.

    Thank you Microsoft for allowing me to keep saving up my, reward points. I don't even look forward to these sales anymore to be honest, it's the same games in rotation, over and over.

    I'm thinking Katamari Damacy Reroll for me this week? I have Beautiful Katamari on the 360 but I hated all the grindy achievements not to mention the online ones and 80-100 hours for completion. It was a fun game at times but not 100 hours of rolling a ball around fun I don't think. This one doesn't seem to have any of those issues so maybe it will be more fun? 20-25 hours sounds a lot more reasonable so I'll probably bite before the sale ends.

    The Namco Museum is finally less than $10 (Vol. 1 at least) but all the games are the NES ports and not the actual arcade cabinet versions so that's pretty generic of them. Only five bucks for 11 games though and I really like classic game collections like that... tough decision now that I think of it since I can't afford both, hmmm.
    I'll probably go with Katamari but good to see Namco finally putting those down to $5 at least (I'm guessing Vol. 2 next week.)

    escaping to silliness seems like the best option, it's Katamari week dance
    "I'm proud of you Sheldon" "yeah, I'm proud of me too" - lol

    MotoGP 18 was just on sale for a similar price a week or two ago. Hopefully this is a pattern and the other entries in the series rotate on sale too. smile

    Unfortunate but the silver lining is that the discounts for this series seem to get deeper and deeper every time these games show up on a weekly sale. https://xbdeals.net/us-store/game/349800/motogp18 You'll probably get it for next to nothing once you finally pick it up. toast

    Katamari Reroll! Gonna definitely grab that unless a disc is cheaper.

    That Madden bundle price is disgusting nearly £100 for American football, come off it EA

    Why did I have hopes for Deus Ex HR Missing link DLC to be on sale... the last time it was on for 84 cents in 2020
    I sometimes wonder, I'm hunting achievements or they're haunting me?

    Same in EU.
    $4,99 is €4,22. Actual price is €12,49
    Always the same with Lego games. Wondering if the license costs are that much cheaper in the US or what the reason is

    Must be a mistake on this list - there is no Assassin's Creed
