    ChewieOnIce said:PabloUK85 said:Who Wants to be a Millionaire exclusively on sale in the US? Cheers MS(!)The game itself is only available in a couple of regions. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions (EU Ver) was pulled from the marketplace entirely. So there's actually nothing else to be discounted apart from the current limited availability version.Wondered why I couldn't find it on the marketplace. Would have been nice to play for a couple of quid or so but oh well, back to the major backlog

    Tempted by all of the cheap Disney games but 10 bucks is a bit steep for a game I'll basically play just for GS. Plus I have a massive backlog at the moment too.

I want to play it for the story, but I fear that I would never be able to complete it.If the completion is that important to you, it's a solid assessment. 100% is going to be out of range for the majority of players. If not, it's still a great game, one of my favorites on the 360 by a long shot, and well worth the price tag.I think I am going to end up getting it. I have always had my eye on it, as it just looks too unique to keep passing up.Catherine is hard, but it's a level of 'hard' that has more to do with skill than with enemies just getting exponentially scaled upwards. The toughest part is the challenge towers (one of which was, no exaggeration, unbeatable in the NA version at one point, dunno if they patched that), but that difficulty is mitigated by doing it in local co-op. There is a grind in one part, but that grind can also help you learn the mechanics and tricks to the game.

    It's one of my favorite games on the 360. Also, true chaos ending FTW!
    That's one of the reasons I love the game so much - while it's difficult, it never feels like the game is taking cheap shots at you. I think the most entertaining part of the glitch is that if you do the previous three stages on local co-op, Axis Mundi is almost anti-climactic.

It's a crazy action-packed shooter, that while definitely not as good as Guerrilla, is worth playing in it's own right. Also - it's an infinitely easier completion.

    Is it just me or are the sales prices different when viewing on the console instead of on xbox.com

    The prices below are for Metro Redux Bundle.

    xbox.com shows $33.16
    Xbox One console store shows $46.87

    xPut Name Herex said:eNaRGe said:Oh, how come we don't get The Raven down here? Let me guess, our stupid fucking censorship laws maybe?I think it is just as simple as Nordic Games not deeming publishing in Australia worthwhile from a business perspective. Out of four games published by them on the site, only one (MX vs. ATV Supercross) seems to be published there.The two are related. There are not enough gamers in Australia to make it worth it to alter the game to meet the censorship laws. The laws are dumb, but in all honesty, everyone censors stuff. When Japanese visual novels come out in the US (I have one officially released on the PC), they also tend to get censored to meet the local US customs and ratings, even though they could be released with an adult rating (but that would be a retail kiss of death here, unless it was just porn, which they actually are not.)

    I'm super happy for no region locking on the xbox One, but I feel that it will be back, for this very reason, Governments and people just want to control what gamers play, and we ( hardcore gamers / fans of foreign cultures ) want to play it all. Super happy to be able to get the Japan-only Free2Play game Onigiri by just changing the language to Japanese and rebooting the One. It has really nice anime art achievement images for my One's background smile

    sirhcman said:I can't believe they are still selling Race-O-Rama with its broken achievement. Pretty disappointing they would try and shill that but I guess not everyone is in it for the achievements...Its a throwaway Kids Licensed game, I would imagine 95 % + of its intended audience couldn't give a damn about achievements. Raving Rabbids (360) got published on multiple systems before anyone even noticed it was glitched (and both of these games were never patched). Also, it seems non-gamebreaking patch budgets are low in general. It was pulling teeth, for like a year, to even get Halo 4's several glitched achievements patched. HALO FSKING FOUR !!!1! Not exactly a no-name indie title. Its just not worth it to be a completionist, as circumstances beyond your control just pop up way too often, even in big budget games sometimes (servers. patches, glitches, LEADERBOARDS, raw dificulty, pointless boosting).

    Let's all get Millionaire and complete it for a boost in the weekly stats.

    Anyone know the chance of Last Light for 360 getting a complete/GOTY/whatever edition that contains the Season Pass content? I ask because I'm considering it, even though I don't have the game (yet).

I ask because I'm considering it, even though I don't have the game (yet).I would say really low at this point. Especially considering its already been re-released in a GOTY format on the One, so the content is already out there in disk form. Frankly, I would be surprised at ANY 360 game getting a new retail GOTY version going forward, if it was not titled Borderlands The Pre-Sequel. There just doesn't seem to be much support for the 360 for new retail games anymore. A digital sale on that content is still a possibility, although most of the sales have been Games on Demand, which I'm not really interested in.

    GammyGreenGiant said:How's riptide?I liked it but thought it was sort of a half-assed expansion to Dead Island. It got boring and felt like a lot of the same later in the game, that is from someone who loved Dead Island 1.

    It also seemed like there was a steep difficulty curve in the beginning which felt odd.

    People say the US version of Who wants to be a millionaire is on sale, but I can't find it in the store at all...... Am I missing something?
