    As for the sale, it's not exactly bad, but it's a sea of games that have been on sale for the same prices many times before. It'd be great to see new lows. Something that would really turn heads. As it is there's not much to get excited about.

    Picked up Alan Wake ... I'll maybe get Little Nightmare 2 later.
    Achievements not unlocking ... and building with no walls and roofs, ... to me it's terrible, I didn't even finish it ... it's a terrible mess.

    This is exactly what I'm on about. These sales seem recycled from previous mass sales.
    There is always a way.

    I wish this list only included the games that are at their lowest price in Spring Sale. would've been much shorter and more informative
    I sometimes wonder, I'm hunting achievements or they're haunting me?

    We don't currently have that option when creating these articles, but I've raised it with the dev team so it's hopefully something we can do in the future...

    These sales always suck for me, there are good deals but I own most of them already facepalm

    One day the Outer Worlds DLC will be $5 apiece. That's about all I'm wanting. Besides Elden Ring still won't release me from its grasp. It's almost endless and I'm not even half done LOL

    Killer Instinct: Definitive Edition as a 'Game that has never been cheaper'? Hum... It's what, the ten tousand times it's at this price? And I didn't check the other titles you mentioned. Strange title that doesn't fit quite well with its list...

    The Xbox Spring Sale is a big one, so bargain hunters will have their work cut out rummaging for games at their lowest prices yet. To help with this, we've trimmed the list to only show cheapest ever prices... and it's still huge!
    I would not use the word "cheapest" to refer to the sticker shock you experience when you catch glimpse of the 84.99 USD price tag on Rockstar's Megalodon Shark Cash Card scam. laugh

    I know Rockstar must feel that they've got to shake down gullible gamers now that they've gotten out of the business of developing new video games. However, they could offer at least a 20% discount.

    Nothing for me. I see no point in spending money when I've got a backlog and XGPU

    How is it a strange title? It means what it means. Literally. Games that have never been cheaper. Has it been the same price before? Sure, but it's NEVER BEEN CHEAPER THAN THAT. Not sure what is so hard to understand.

    Anybody tried those risk of rain games? Looks like a poor mans borderlands and at 10 bucks for both games I might bite.

    Useful feature. If it becomes a regular roundup, would it be possible to add a column indicating if the game has never been at this price before?
    Doesn't the title of the article give that away?

    Risk of Rain 2 is one of my favorite games from the last few years. Definitely recommend it.

    Yes, 'It means what it means. Literally. Games that have never been cheaper.' This article is for contents that reached their lowest prices SO FAR, AT THIS EXACT MOMENT, FOR THE FIRST TIME.

    Killer Instinct is always at 9.99, for months/years, so IT HAS ALREADY BEEN CHEAPER than that. Meaning with those Spring sales, it reached (again) its lowest price, but not below.

    If a content has already been that low, so it has already been that cheap. With the word NEVER, it means BEFORE now, the lowest in its history.

    Not difficult to understand. 🤷

    Thanks for the feedback. I think I`ll get the bundle.

    Insurgency Sandstorm is closer to being worth buying. I just worry about all the bugs & the silence from the developers about fixing it. I may pick it up or might wait for it to come down a bit more. Maybe in the $20USD area not sure yet. The concept look interesting & PC play looks very good. Just on console the videos & streams look very buggy.

    so Halo Wars 2 Awakening the Nightmare still never discounted
    Cheaper to rebuy entire game ....
    This farse needs to stop. Either 343 or MS need to sort it out & take blinders off, rather than loyal following who suffered through all the issues with this game even after was heavily discounted, for the Ultimate ed to be replaced by Complete ed & HaloWars 1 to be given away for £4 was it?
    Come the f on.

    No, because a lot of the games have previously been on sale at the same discount.

    I highly doubt it’s aged well at all
    It's a game from 2006 and it costs $1.49, I would assume you would keep your expectations in check.
    I see you haven’t even been here a year. First off welcome to TrueAchievements. That said we’ve got thousands of members who won’t even touch games unless they have a 4K and 60 FPS setting (and bitch when they don’t). So I’ll say it again with that in mind Welcome to the site 🤣

    I started and finished it in 2021, and it was a blast!

    Old does not mean bad. Definitely the best use of $1.49 this week.
    Absolutely. I finished the SP (offline, didn’t buy live back then) in like 07-08. Obviously never did MP without live
