    Agree with others, not a bad sale at all. Cyanide and Happiness + Dark Nights with Poe and Munro for me, maybe I'll find something else later.

    I suggest passing on Furi. DLC for it came out on every platform except Xbox as the devs gave us the middle finger instead.
    Forgot about that, knew the name seemed familiar! From what I remember they put it on every other system and then said they didn't have enough time to put it on Xbox? roll
    Ah and here I thought it was the opposite and we were the only ones who got the dlc. Oh well, played it on PS4 a while ago and it was decent, but I won’t mind skipping it.

    Is Strange Brigade worth playing coop? Thanks!
    Personally, I think so. The more the merrier for sure. Got it for $8 a few months ago and have been waiting for another sale since, guess this is as good as it’s gonna get.
    Thanks, i'll give it a try.

    This is probably the craziest sale ever for me to date. 31 games on sale with the right price (many more with the wrong price) that I'm interested in.

    Long for the day I actually get a wishlist notification
    Do people not get them? I got one.

    Also, was excited to finally see a tower defence game on sale just to find out it has 10 unobtainables. facepalm
    X-Morph: Defense title update achievements seem to be partly unobtainable because the title update never dropped on Windows, but can still be unlocked on console. If that is what you are referring to...
    Well that’s better, but still worries me that they would do that. Who’s to say they won’t add something for us next?

    Also unless I’m crazy, clicking the “unobtainable” on mobile doesn’t bring you anywhere. Wish it did.

    I loved Alien Isolation, and after some brief internet research it sounds like Soma and Amnesia are similar styles to that. Six bucks gets em both, very cool.
    State of the badass art.

    Strange Brigade is a much more enjoyable experience played in co-op. You can play it solo, but I found it kinda boring.

    Holy shit, I've had Plague Inc on my wishlist for literal years, I was sure I was just going to have to buy it at full price.
    Same.

    I guess this is a sign that Microsoft believes that the pandemic is virtually over.

    Plague Inc. used to be on sale very regularly pre-pandemic, but this is the first sale since the start of the pandemic. Apparently, this is also the cheapest it’s ever been. I picked it up finally and I’m glad I picked up the “Cure” DLC while it was still free.

    I also picked up Frostpunk Complete Edition and may bite on Bad North and Super Meat Boy Forever. We’ll see.

    This was going to be my response as well. My buddies and I recently finished the main story and while the shooting mechanics aren't great, the game itself offers enough fun to be had, especially at that price.
    Hey, you! Pipe down!

    Can anyone confirm if the Batman Telltale games are worth the purchase?

    Don’t know if anyone noticed this but Escape Dead Island (Xbox 360 BC game) has been on sale for quite awhile? It’s $2.99 on sale and dlc pack with achievements is free. Is it a permanent sale?

    I find my favorite games from these sales. Check out Hard West Ultimate, it’s great.

    SOMA is one of my few 100%. Fantastic and has stayed with me for over a year. Stellar.

    Othercide is great, too. Did 100% without a guide.

    So does the “Games Specials” on the XB store not show everything on sale? Didn’t notice X-Morph or that bee game.

    Oh and NV dlc which I coincidentally found while searching for the bee game.

    Huge, huge week.

    Hugest in recent memory that's not some seasonal/"ultimate".

    Looking to buy half a dozen games from this sale.

    I know it has been wishlist'd in the past, but I would love it if these sales could give an option to show the associated genres. I am always on the lookout for new games to try in genres I love, but it is very often that a title alone means nothing in regards to the type of game it is.

    Nice, I got three watchlist notifications from xbdeals.
    Three local co-op games: Biped, BattleBlock Theater and Boomerang Fu
    Bought all three of them :)
    Battleblock Theatre was a blast in coop. Enjoy!

    Have been considering The Solitaire Conspiracy and 80% off is very tempting. Would appreciate any thoughts, if you've played it!

    Thanks! Haven't tried yet. Will do today.

    Only tried Biped, but got frustrated pretty fast, and requested a refund.
