    I know that if you buy a physical copy that it's a standalone game but I looked at the detail page for Red Dead and it says that for Undead Nightmare it "requires a game" so I guess you can't play it without the base game?

    Me three. Haven't had a notification alert for sales for 3 weeks now ish. If it doesn't get sorted I recommend the XB Deals app.

    £16.73 in total to have the Tekken 7 characters that were there from the start in 6 + Tag Tournament 2, what a joke.

    Really want to go back and do the Ezio Collection AC games but hasn't hit that sweet spot yet. It's been on sale for £7.99 before so want it to go below £10 at least

    Have plenty of other things to keep me busy whilst I wait on that one

    It is not stand alone as on disc. Remember making that mistake many years ago. It requires the base game.

    It's funny how Tekken 7 characters are valued and sold at such ridiculous prices and they still expect people to buy themlaugh; I could literally buy a Yakuza game at the price of two Tekken 7 characters on sale.

    I had it through a friend's account a while back. It requires the game since It's only available to download as a DLC in the manage game section of the base game.
    I sometimes wonder, I'm hunting achievements or they're haunting me?

    December 14th was my last. Think they may have shut them off with all the random sales they've been tossing out to prevent a bunch of notifications that are misleading or confusing

    TBH I forgot how annoying Christmas week/January is here with the reposts explaining obvious shit so I'll probably be avoiding the page as much as possible next month and if it's still down then I'd expect the feature is gone

    Oh good, Yakuza 0, Kiwami and Kiwami 2 are all under £5. I wonder if its worth getting The Yakuza Remastered Collection for £20.99 now while its on sale. 3, 4 and 5 may leave Gamepass soon, like the previous 3 games.

    Redeemed £50 from MS Rewards and got Disjunction, Murder Mystery, Yakuza 0 and then Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 to take me over the £30 limit to get back 4000pts from the Countdown offer in the Rewards App.

    Added Disco Elysium and Kiwami 1+2 from Deals with Gold and it cost me £10 out of pocket.

    Pretty happy with that haul and really looking forward to Disco Elysium as well as the Murder Mystery game that I'd never heard of but actually looks/sounds pretty good!
