child of light is a bargain for £8.
I got it on release day and it is still one of the best digital games on xbox one.

If you are a fan of RPG's and you dont have this yet... what are you waiting for?

Can't decide if I want to pick up Prototype or not considering I beat the second one. Anyone have any recommendations on this?

Vigilante 8 for £1.69? It'd be rude not to.
250 achievements on old games for 1% increase.... soon be 90% >_<

Flaming Jammers said:Can't decide if I want to pick up Prototype or not considering I beat the second one. Anyone have any recommendations on this?The first game is much harder than the original, usually in a frustrating way. There's many more enemies that are a threat through the entire game, and they like to throw a lot of them in at once, especially by late game. Rocket launchers are comparatively more difficult to counter, the shield is nowhere near as effective, and you don't get a dedicated dodge button, so prepare to get hit a lot. Devastators use HP, so unlike storing mass, you can only use them if you're doing amazing or about to die. Prototype 2 nailed the gameplay, so the original is going to feel dated and awkward.

Story, the game does it better. Mercer won't look familiar in the slightest based on Prototype 2, there's more going on than a simple revenge plot, and the Web of Intrigue plots things out better for you in breadcrumb style.

In short, the gameplay's more punishing than 2 but the story is better. If that's worth $5, then yes.


As for the sales, Vigilante 8 looks appealing, but the reviews that say it feels like a downgrade is disappointing and discouraging.

Finally the DLC for Bellator goes on sale with the game itself, declined last time because it wasn't but now I will be highly tempted to get it.

Is Child of Light worth the price or should I wait for it to potentially go to Games With Gold?

Really don't know whether to wait!
