    Is the Borderlands bundle a good deal? I’d still have to get the season pass I assume for 2 and any dlc that it doesn’t cover.
    The only dlc that you’d have to get for borderlands is the “fight for sanctuary” one that came out right before borderlands 3 (was free at one point then became paid). All the other dlc is included in the Xbox one version of all 3 of those games.
    Thanks for reply. Much appreciated.

    Damn hitman 2 at that price is too good to pass up, anyone know what else I'd have to buy for DLC to get all of the cheevos?

    The achievement and dlc situation of Hitman is as convoluted as possible. I'll try to simplify it as much as I can.
    First, you may or may not know but Hitman 2 includes all of Hitman 1 with the added new mechanics and almost every single old achievement. Essentially you have to redo everything you did in Hitman 1 again... adding a good 40+ hours to the completion without even touching the new levels... The good news is that some of the Hitman 2 unlocks making the completion simpler/easier. For example you can now bring rat poison in a bottle with you so you don't have to begin every single playthrough picking some up, heavy weapons arrive to the levels in discrete briefcases or there are more and easier challenges to get your mastery faster. The bad news is the only way to access Hitman 1 levels in Hitman 2 is to own HITMAN GAME OF THE YEAR EDITION or HITMAN GOTY LEGACY PACK. The first pack has everything for H1 and installs the old levels in Hitman 2. The second pack is just the old level install for H2. Yes, the Legacy Pack is ridiculously expensive, you can buy the H1 GOTY much cheaper. As far as I know there is no other way to get the old levels so if you bought H1 and the dlcs separately or through the season pass you are out of luck. Thank you IOI.
    With the "bonus" content out of the way, Hitman 2 has the usual content. The base game with the training and the first intro level for free if I remember correctly, the main game which is a bunch of maps you can buy and install separately and the Expansion pack 1-2 (with its own Expansion Pass) full of cosmetics and 4 small maps (two is classic Hitman and two is a terrible sniping map). All have their own achievement lists.
    THE GAME DOESN'T HAVE A SEASON PASS! The only way to get what the season pass content would be (every dlc) is to buy the Hitman 2 Gold Edition but that still doesn't include the H1 maps!

    tl;dr: You have to pick one option for the old (legacy) and new content
    Legacy content:
    1, Hitman Gold Edition OR
    2, Hitman GOTY Legacy Pack
    New Content:
    1, Hitman 2 Gold Edition OR
    2, Hitman 2 + Hitman 2 Expansion Pass

    I guess you could buy the maps separately for Hitman 2 because the base game is free but that is obviously not worth it.
    I love the rebooted Hitman games but I have always hated how confusing it is to get all the content. I'm almost certain I bought an unnecessary content pack and the the correct one when I discovered my mistake back when I played it. Basically bought on sale but still ended up paying close to $60 due to being confused
    While I have little to no interest in playing more Hitman (it's not bad, just not really for me) this was a great post for explaining the purchase options. If there isn't something similar there already it might not be a bad idea to make a post in the Hitman game forum so this information is easily found by others in need of it.

    Good idea, I made a topic in the Hitman 2 forum. My goal was to actually explain the situation so anyone can make an informed decision, especially because not everything is on sale all the time. For example the H2 Gold Edition is not right now.

    Paper Mario fans, I cannot stress enough to give Bug Fables a chance. It is a very good game.
    As a PM lover I wholeheartedly agree with this statement. I played only two chapters but OMG yes it hits SO close to the good old times. I suggest using the difficulty badges to get more rewards and the game is much more engaging. I feel it is otherwise too easy and gets boring. Just make sure to turn off the money one for the bosses as they don’t drop any

    I recently picked up Alekhine's Gun for $3.99, and honestly, it's not even bad as some people make it out to be. Sure, the game isn't no 5 star game, but it's definitely playable and can be quite enjoyable at times as well. Alekhine's Gun is a smaller budget Hitman type game, and it's definitely worth the price on sale. Also, the unobtainable achievement was fixed a few years back, so getting the full 1,000G is possible now. With that being said, there isn't a walkthrough guide for the game here on the site, but the achievements are clear enough on what you need to do so they shouldn't be too difficult to obtain.

    A sale started only for Latam countries ATM with a considerable amount of games, with I think it's the first time Midnight Club: LA has been on discount since its relisting.
