    ChewieOnIce said:BiGPaPaRu said:are you sure Never Alone is on sale?When Major Nelson first posted it was listed although the discount wasn't yet live (apart from in Japan). However, his post has now been edited to remove it so looks like it's not going to be after all. I've removed it from the OP.Since Major Nelson's blog is a list of US deals (...availability... may vary by region), it is still on sale this week for those of you with a Japan account. http://www.xbox.com/ja-JP/live/deals-with-gold

    Xbox One Games
    Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) - 50% off - Now ¥810

    This would be because Japan would not have a DwG this week otherwise, since Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition and Just Dance 2015 are not available in Japan. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/deals-with-gold

    Might finally pick up Mirror's Edge.

    And if anyone hasn't got it, Plants v Zombies Garden Warfare is a wonderful game. Great fun.

    Don't get Fuse, the game is terrible. A generic co-op shooter with boring story, unimaginative level design and gimmicky gameplay. Dragon age Origins and Inquisition are awesome games if you like RPGs, can’t recommend them highly enough, Dragon age 2 is complete garbage though, avoid it like plague. Mirror's edge is a very interesting game, very unique, certainly worth playing, especially at that price. Hope this helps.
    Fuse isn't THAT bad. Especially at $4. Nothing goty worthy but mildly fun in co-op. I haven't played Dragon Age 2 yet but its sitting on a 4/5 rating from thousands of people. It can't be so bad that you avoid it like the plague as you said. I agree about Mirror's edge.
    Well I still have Mafia II to play after picking it up last week on sale, so I might just go with one game, like Mirror's Edge. I'm still undecided, though.
    If you have to choose only 1 game, Mirrors Edge is an excellent choice. Certainly unique and still looks good despite being several years old now.
    I'll definitely pick up Mirror's Edge, but I also think I'll grab DA:O while it's really cheap. Also seriously debating the most recent Army of Two game. Decisions, decisions...

    Mirror's Edge for me, would it hurt them to at least add related DLC to the sale?

Having bought it then, I now feel ripped off. angryWell..i bought it full price on release day, and saw it discounted 33% a few days later, before I even started it...

    Mirror's Edge is going to be the most unique experience in my opinion. I really enjoyed it as it was different than anything I have ever played before.
    Most bang for your buck will be the Dragon Age games if you end up liking them simply because of how much content is there.

    So I can offer up those two as either a unique experience vs. a lengthy, but cost efficient, investment.

    Fuse and Syndicate are both extremely meh and there's no reason to go out of your way to play either of them, even at these prices. They're extremely bland, uninteresting, short, and grindy games. Battlefield 3 Tech Demo (aka Mirror's Edge) may be worth it at that price considering there's about $4 worth of gameplay in it.

    Why is Mass Effect 2's Overlord never for sale? The last time Mass Effect DLCs were up they included every DLC except Overlord, and now they just picked Arrival at random apparently.

    And balls at that Titanfall deal. I bought the season pass for $6 the last time they clearanced Titanfall products, no way I'm buying it again for the deluxe edition.

    Is it okay to switch regions to buy games from other marketplaces? I want to get DA:I but the difference between the US price and the UK price is £10. Not sure if you're allowed to do so, or even if the game is region-locked, etc.
