    Picked up the season pass for both The Raven and The Wolf Among Us.
    Going to wait on that Game of Thrones and Borderlands though. It will eventually be 50% off or better too. :D

    First time I've bought nothing in the Christmas sales so far. I guess I've already picked up most of what I wanted now so there's less chance something I'm after comes up now.
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    Nothing for me, either it's already in the backlog, or it's not discounted enough. But otherwise, there are good titles and almost everybody should find something interesting in that list.

    Oh well, maybe Games of Thrones Ep1, but it might be on sale again before all episodes are released as I wait for all episodes before playing a TellTale game.

    And huge Thanks to Chewie for the article. It must have taken frigging long to write that.
    Welcome to TA, where stats are made up and some achievements do not matter.

    These daily deals continue to bring the suck.
    You fail me.

It was just a joke and honestly, no game is really that hard as long as you have the patience and you practice it.laugh Even if you were joking to begin with; you weren't wrong. Max Payne 3 is genuinely an easy completion. You could easily imagine the cry people must have if they actually played a more challenging game.

    Also, I love that people cry & moan about Rockstar sales. If you haven't noticed, their games are popular & obviously Microsoft continuously generates an income from those games. They're definitely not going to change their pattern for this small community that is often full of whingers. Just let the constant Rockstar sales act as a reminder to buy Max Payne 3 & you can finally have that aneurysm plenty of you seem to be having without even owning the game. It's just sad to not start a game that can be completed because you'll find it "hard" to get all of the achievements.
    I mean, nobody REALLY bitches and moans that their games are always on sale as it is a bad thing. Obviously it's a great thing, Rockstar games are some of the best out there. I'm sure most people, including me, just find it funny that the same set of games seem to be always on sale.

    But I would agree with you about the ending. The guy never even played the game yet is complaining about how hard it is laugh

    anyone looking to pick up Metal Gear Rising, I suggest you check out your local walmart first. I Literally just bought MG:R and Max Payne 3 for $5. Not a huge diff but still a little less for the physical copy

    Picked up the Alien:Isolation season pass, i don't mind it doesn't add any achievements. I am just looking forward to playing the new survival maps.

    For cartoon Network it is a broke mans super smash. If you stick with it it is a two day completion. There Is a little grind at the end but not to bad. For 5 dollars that is a good price for the game

    But Max Payne 3 is great for that price. Very easy completion!
    May Payne 3 is one of the hardest games to complete on the 360. Only .54% of gamers have completed it
    He is trying to say it was easy for him. Which somehow in his mind, makes him better than the rest who had a hard time. To this day I'm still glad I never got an achievement on that game
    Oh shut up. It was just a joke and honestly, no game is really that hard as long as you have the patience and you practice it.
    you know what... for once i actually agree with you.

Their "TROPHY CASE" was lined with Halo games. laughOh no... stop.. your judgement of me based on the games I enjoy enough to complete is really having an impact on my life... and I'm not afraid to play MP3, I am just relieved that I don't have another game on my tag that I didn't enjoy playing. Sue me.

    I might pick up the Telltale bundle if nothing else tickles my fancy throughout the daily deals.

    I'm considering Korra and Rock Band Blitz. If I have to pick one, it's going to be Korra. I also grabbed the Bruce Lee stuff, because free is good.

    Telltale Bundle for $55, great deal. 50% off their whole lineup on the xbone. Loved TWD on the 360 and this is stackable ,easy cheives.

    Sweet deals.. grabbed Raven and The Wolf Among Us for the 360.. thinking about the TellTale bundle, how long is it good for?

    • Destiny - 25% off - Now US$44.99 / £41.24 / €52.49 / AU$74.96

    They really don't want more people playing this game, do they? This is hardly a discount for a game that has its fair share of issues.

    There, you see? Borderlands and Game Of Thrones season passes 50% off before the second episode of either has been released. I hate being right. Though I just found confirmation that it's a good thing that I waited with buying either.
    There's no accounting for taste, it'd be best if everyone just respected that.

    I went outside once, the graphics were amazing but the characters and storyline were truly awful.
