    so heres my dilemma, always wanted to play halo wars, but I get this feeling that since its on sale today, it will be free in a month or 2.

    Because Microsoft likes to screw with us like that.

    Was GwG in another country and we've yet to have same games as other countries when that happened so far, so who knows.

    There's nothing there for me.

    But that's not to say this isn't a good deal. Sleeping Dogs, Remember Me, the DmC collection, Alan Wake... These are some of the most underrated games on the system.

    Alan wake is totally worth it but I already done it. Nothing else here for me

    Sleeping dogs really? It was free not long ago totaly pointless putting it on discount now

    I was considering Remember Me, but something tells me we will eventually see that as a Game with Gold, so I think I'll pass on that for now. I've got plenty else to play anyway.

    GAHHHHHHHH when are they going to discount Alan Wake DLC? I'm thisclose to caving and buying it...I've waited forever!

    Definitely picking up Charlie Murder. I was waiting for them to patch the game so it can be completed, but at that price it's just too good to pass up. Might also pick up the Gears 3 Season Pass. Everything else I already own or have no interest in ever owning.

    Is Gears 3 worth buying? I can't remember which but hear either 3 or judgement was pretty bad.
    You're thinking of Judgement. It's apparently a pile of crap, but Gears 3 is definitely my favourite of the original trilogy.
    Judgement = leftover Gears 3 DLC barely padded out into a retail release

    And anyone who has a Jpn deck and doesn't have Gears 2 should totally buy it and help us idiots who decided grind 50 waves of 'old school' horde on all 29 maps was a great idea haha

    I'm rather tempted by Remember Me. From what I've heard, it's not the best game, but it still looks like something I'd definitely enjoy.
    Its a good game worthy of 8/10. & its a fairly simple 1000GS which thats always good incentive laugh

    No, you would need an NTSC-J console.

    It has been discounted in the past. Don't remember exactly when but that's how and when I got it.

    why are so many previous GWG on this weeks DOTW :S doesnt make any sense to put them out for free first towards gold member and somewhat later have them on discount!?

    i think i found 1 maybe 2 dotw interesting, other than that its nothing worthy week after week imho :O
    Actually, I think it's brilliant to put previous games with gold games up for free, because anyone who missed them for free now has a chance to play with their friends. I was hoping for dead rising 2 for free though for a buddy of mine that i want to play coop with.
    Not everyone grabs every free game like they should. Hell, there are still some people who don't know games with gold is a thing.

    Got my hopes up when I started seeing halo titles, waiting on the Halo 4 dlc to go on sale. However, the gears 3 season pass, Alan wake and Halo Wars are steals at that price. For those on the fence about RTS on a console you won't be disappointed with a halo Wars, very simplified compared to a PC title but still very enjoyable, especially the co-op campaign. Be advised those, the mp rank achievements is a very dull grind......
