    Sucks that I cannot get Eternal Sonata as I have no Gold. :(

    Anyone know if non-VPN methods work still? Wanting to get SSX from Canada.

    Can anybody tell me if SSX compares to the old ones and is worth getting? I'm worried about the length of the online achievements too.

    I think after reading the comments, I'm going to pick up ducktales. Seems like the achievements are more obtainable.

    Ska Studios is working out a patch thankfully; they haven't forgotten. Hopefully, it'll be resolved soon early next year.

    Probably going to pick up The Bridge and TWAU Season Pass.

    SSX (2012), I believe, is a mix between SSX 3 and On Tour (without skis). I'd certainly say it's a little more challenging than the others, but still a blast to play. Also, the online achievements are pretty bearable; they don't require too much work. I've completed the game, but I might buy it digitally for that price (rented it a few times).

    See my walkthough if you need help with SSX. :-)

    *Shameless plug*

    SSX is enjoyable. Some parts of world tour are annoying, but the game itself is mostly fun. It's entirely single-player, however, so I hope you weren't looking for a multiplayer aspect.

    Anyway, everyone on TA must be all dazed and tired this morning, because I don't see the usual crying and whining from the userbase, bitching at MS for not giving them enough...

    Wolf season pass is a good deal, but I haven't had time to play the free episode 1 yet!!
  • Posted on 25 December 13 at 15:32
    I read somewere yesterday that gotham city impostors were permanently deducted with 75%. Is that right or wrong?

    Is this only for this one week and then the prices will go up again for this game?

    Also same question for orc attack, foul play and frogger, duck tales remastered.counter strike GO

    Just throwing out my recommendation for Eternal Sonata. It's a good little RPG and a steal at this price.

    Don't forget that you can get ALL THREE eternal sonata versions if you have an american, a european, and a japanese account.

    As they triple-stack, it's WELL worth it. You can use your paypal on three different accounts and get all versions.

    Hope this helps, people.
    Now you need hundreds of pounds to get an NTSC AND NTSC-J Xbox. It's no problem if you have the money of course lol.

    Picked up deadlight, I am alive, wold among us, and NCAA football '14. Was really yearning for a football game with all the bowl games going on. Went nuts on these deals to make up for every single deal that I passed on. Glad I waited!

    Deadlight for sure.

    Flashback's trial seems fun, but everyone seems to hate it? Any comments as to why?
    ^ That made sense to me at 4:20...

    All 5 episodes of The Wolf Among Us for £6.69. SOLD!

    So glad I waited to buy this. smile

    People shouldn't have bought the Season Pass until a day before episode 2 comes out, there's no point in buying it early. It's not as if it's going to go up in price, only down.

    I've done exactly the same with Walking Dead Season 2, will wait until the day before episode 2 is released before buying the Season Pass.
