    LETS GOOOOOOO I finally copped Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite💪

    I was willing to get it for $20 so $12 for the deluxe edition is a steal.
    i remember playing it some when it was a part of game pass
    seemed like the multiplayer was broken
    had to wait forever to hope for a match
    i even tried it double boxing it would fail
    That’s ass. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 had issues too. I couldn’t even double box to get the “5 ranked wins in a row” achievement on vanilla MvC3, although Ultimate MvC3 worked fine.

    Nothing worth spending money on, was hoping someone over at the sales department would get their head out there ass & put raiden v on sale finally but they didn’t so there’s nothing worth buying for me.

    I don't understand why the call of duty games go on sale and the collections also go on sale but the individual dlcs don't?
    $$$$$$$$$$$

    I often wonder how these sales are curated....what is the reason we always get the same stuff over and over when there are many hundreds of cool and unique titles that never get a discount or sale. Is it the individual devs that aren't interested?
    TBH the games you are referring to are probably a couple years old at least. The devs that still exist, remember studios get bought out/shut down all the time, don't care enough about said game to give a shit if a few more people buy or not, they've moved on to pushing their other games. We get the same ones because there is likely a job at said studio someone gets paid for to send some games each week up for sale to throw the developer/series onto some pages and drive traffic.

    I shouldn't be surprised how lacking this one is, but I am. 90 things in my wish list, 32 on sale and none of them are the ones I really wanted. Looks like a long wait to Black Friday.
    Are you just cross referencing? I can't find anywhere that totals up my wishlist items (too lazy to count if that's what you did) nor anywhere on wishlist that shows if one of the games is on sale.

    Gee how shocking the 360 sales are uninteresting as always during these big sales.

    Have they forgot about Xbox 360? They seem to never have sales on some digital only non-backwards compatible titles. Or haven't for like 3-4 years.
    Unless that is up to the publisher of the game, and they forgot/don't care.
    For years I've been wanting this "final hurrah sale" for the 360 that would feature a ton of games and DLC bot bc and non-bc but it'll never happen. The 360 sales are the same exact games every single time :(

    GTA Trilogy

    Microsoft $38.99 for a digital game that could disappear (and some at Rockstar wish would)

    Amazon $19.99 for a collection you’ll regret having paid for the rest of your life


    All jokes aside bought my first physical disc since Mafia III. I started SA in GP and have doubts Rockstar will ever bring the others to GP given the reception to them

    Same here. I have a disc copy of KOTOR and my original Xbox still as well (which actually was my brothers and he gave it to me when he moved). I have all of my other old systems though as well ranging from the 360 back to the Sega Genesis as my earliest that I still have and works. Used to have an NES and SNES but they stopped working a long time ago and we could never fix them :(
    I made a point of always buying a console as it was being phased out. Until recently, you could always snag them for dirt cheap prices. That changed with the PS4 Pro & X1X but I got some decent 2019 Black Friday deals the year before the 9th gen consoles were released so I'm good there. I have consoles of every generation beginning with the first--the 1972 Magnavox Odyssey. This September, it will be half a century old. smile

    Would've gotten Outer Worlds since it finally hit $15, but at this point might as well see if it hits $10. Wanted to go after the 4k punchcard but PC games don't look like they count so...nah. Only want to add it to the digital library anyway just to have.

    That's cool :D '72 was a bit before my time so I would have missed that :P A couple of my consoles were just given to me and the others were ones I bought or were gifted. At least one good thing about most of them is they are all offline systems so no dealing with no access to important features when their support was shut down :D Some had some great games that as far as I know never had a rerelease on newer systems too so having the old consoles makes it nice to still have the ability to play those games. I even have an ancient computer that still has DOS and can run my ancient computer games :D

    The problem is the DLC. It has never been reasonably priced. On sale, at 20 USD, ironically, it's more expensive than the base game.

    Can anyone suggest anything between $20-25 that is worth it. I’ve gone through a couple times and only thrown 2 games worth 19.98 into my cart. I honestly think I’m gonna have to pass on one of these deals for the first time in awhile. Usually can find one of the $40 games I was going to buy and play anyway so have a fall back if I can’t build up. Not at all the case here. I have pretty much everything I’ve ever considered and I’m hoping I missed something that could put me over

    Anyone have anything good to say about Lornsword Winter Chronicle ? It looks fun but I don’t always trust crazy positive user reviews on the XBox Store for non well known games.

    That was about 10yrs before I was born :P I'm not quite that old yet but I'm slowly getting there :P Awesome your still into gaming all these years later though :D

    Hope you enjoy KOTOR! A friend had me play it a long time ago and I had so much fun I spent quite awhile hunting down my own copy of it! I still hope to find KOTOR 2 on disc even after picking it up on digital but I somehow doubt I'll find that one for a decent copy/price. If servers stop trying to shut down for a bit I could catch up on things and play through them again finally though! :D

    The only new xbox 360 game on sale there is Rage. Which is great. But that is the only one that hasn't been on sale dozens of times before. Still hoping for a xbox 360 BC game sale extravaganza
    Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.
