    Quadrahands said:Billy Horrible said: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.I have good news, you are not right. They are 15% off, not 50%.You're right, I misread the page. First episodes of both are 50% off and the season passes are indeed only 15% off.

    Though the "I'm right" bit was referring to me telling everybody a few weeks ago when both games were released that they'd just put the season passes on sale again anyways before the second episode would be released, like they did with Wolf Among Us. Appears I was right about that one, though to be fair 15% off is less horrible to swallow as a day one buyer than 50% off.
    There's no accounting for taste, it'd be best if everyone just respected that.

    Almost bought Tomb Raider the other day for a higher price than that, so picked up that and GoT for XB1.

Sue me.Have you actually played the game or are you jumping on the bandwagon? I gave it 5 stars.

    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
    Missing out on a great game. Just play it on normal and don't worry about NYM & NYMHC.
    That's what I did. It's a fantastic story and perhaps one of the best games I've ever played. I'll eventually give it a proper go and complete the game, but there's just too many games where I just want to get through the main story and move on to the next.

I remember getting through the stadium level and I just wasn't enjoying myself so I stopped playing. I'm glad I didn't pop an achievement because I don't want another game on my tag I'm not enjoying. I only complete a game if I can have fun doing it. I do have a few hard completions under my belt so it's not like I only go for easy games. Life is too short to not enjoy your hobby, you know?

    Sorry but I have to ask the obligatory 'Will I like GoT if I haven't watched/read it?' - I'm a big Telltale fan and for £2 it's hard to resist pulling the trigger.

    Bought The Raven episodes and TWAU, which I think are the first things I've bought so far from these sales.

    Got Max Payne sometime last year at the same price for a disc copy, and the season pass months ago. Yet I haven't brought myself to play it yet (partially because I would love to play a HD port of 1 & 2 beforehand, however unrealistic). Maybe sometime next year I might take the plunge, though the difficulty is kinda daunting and I'm not a fan at all of grinding in MP. :/

Also, you've missed the point about how people are afraid of putting certain games on their Gamertag even though they own it. No wonder enjoying a hobby is difficult for people if they have OCD about completion. It's not about everyone needing to like MP3.
    Any stories you may hear about me murdering civilians in ACIII MP are completely unsubstantiated.

It also doesn't matter how far I got in the story. The story was uninteresting to me from the get go. I know what I like and don't like. I didn't care about the other point. I would have addressed it otherwise.

    Really wish I could buy a few of these. Maybe one day when I have time I will just get one whenever. It will be way more expensive though.

    It really pisses me off that the currency conversion doesn't match up with any deals.

    COD:AW is €52.49 or $44.99. If you convert $44.99 to euro its €36.80.

    The US always has the best prices while the rest of us get shafted. Really annoys me. And I know that the publishers pick the prices (apparently) but its still a load of crap!

    I bought the Telltale Collection for the Xbone but it Seems that the Borderlands Season Pass (which should be within the collection) is not linked to the "Buy"-Button and missing in the download queue ... cry

    It would be great if someone can confirm this is problem in general or how i can solve this Problem.

    btw: the Game of Thrones Season Pass was linked & downloaded ...
