    Arise: A Simple Story is one of the best games you’ve never played and probably haven’t even heard of. Easy completion and very high quality.

    I think it's the first time that One Piece Warrior 4 for (PC) is on sale ( was gamepass), if anyone want to add it to their collection. Xbox version is always on sale.

    For me the 2 classic Alan Wake dlcs and I already own it but Slaps and Beans is at its lowest, it's a big nostalgia punch for boys (and girls... And whatever you are ofc) of the late 80s.

    Huntdown for $4 is an absolute steal. If you are into 2d action then its a must own. Worth the full $20 to me. I actually bought the physical Collectors edition for like $80.

    Brought:

    Bud Spencer & Terence Hill - Slaps And Beans (£2 side scroller beat'em'up, worth a punt)
    Huntdown (£3, never heard of it, looks good)
    What Lies in the Multiverse (£3.50, looks like it could be interesting, not sure but it was cheap)
    Enter The Gungeon (£4, never played it before, heard a lot of good things)
    Blind Fate: Edo no Yami (£8, looks very good, from wishlist)

    Enter the Gungeon is quite tough but suuuuuch a good game, amazing rogue like with so, so many references.

    Far Cry 6 Gold for $25 is a good deal, snatching that up. That was the price I was waiting for.

    Guess I'll pick up this Huntdown game too since everyone is raving about it.

    I'm glad that Huntdown finally went on sale for a great price and was an instant buy for me. I've heard good things about it and the art style looks rad as well.

    Want to buy Chrono Cross now. But just to clarify for anyone playing it, do you have to have all the cheats on to unlock the achievements, if I read correctly?

    Kunio-kun: The World Classics Collection is on sale. I've never seen this happen (had my Series X since May 2022). The regular price seems a bit steep but this looks good to me. (It's a Japanese exclusive by the way.)

    so it´s funny MK11 with this discount, even when the game still on Game Pass, does anyone knows if the new version will be on the first day in Gamepass?

    I don’t know for sure, but I expect not at launch.

    However even non fighting game fans should consider the Injustice 2 + Mortal Kombat 11 bundle, it is a steal, includes all DLC characters plus MK11 Aftermath and both games include a very long, quality story campaign.. The campaign fighting can be set to easy to you can basically button mash and win (it may take a few tries on bosses).

    The only thing not in that bundle is Injustice 2 Infinite Free gear transmogs which you’ll only deeply want if you get heavily into the Multiverse mode and goes on regular sale for about $1.99 anyway.

    Yeah, it's simple. Just need to buy a JPY point card. Living in Japan, I usually buy UK cards from UK Amazon (originally, my account was created as a UK one on the 360) to get a bunch of games not available here.

    This not being released outside Japan (and Hong Kong looks like) is a bit peculiar yes, considering the menus and all are in English.

    Yeah the bundle was released on switch and PlayStation in US. The best part of it is the translated kunio games so it's frustrating.
