    Never did get Dead Rising. Can't go wrong with $5.

    Picked up Minerva's Den and Remember Me. Only cost me $7.48 using a Bing Rewards code. Prepaid codes carry the additional benefit of not charging you tax on a credit card transaction, even if only a single penny from your balance is applied.

    Duke Nukem Forever was a game I actually enjoyed. It's one of those that got a shitty rep at some point and everyone simply parrots bullshit instead of ever giving the game a chance.

    Speaking of shitty multiplayer, save your money on The Darkness and buy the sequel instead. One of the few franchises where the sequel improves literally everything about the game and the IP instead of fucking it up, as is usually the case.

    As a fan of Borderlands and someone who has played the Pre-Sequel to achievement completion already, I don't think $30 is worth it. Wait for $20 at least.

    Spec Ops is one of my top 5 video game story lines, and for $7.50 it's absolutely worth the play if you haven't tried it already.

    Mafia 2 is thoroughly meh, but the entire game and its DLC for $15 isn't a bad deal.

    Spec ops is a very underrated game but go into any decent games shop and you pick it up for less than £5 without the need for a sale.

It doesn't have the unique and intriguing atmosphere of the first one, and was also way too short. I agree that the gameplay is much better in TD2 though, and that the MP in TD1 was unnecessary to say the least.

    Is the Bioshock Infinite DLC worth that price? (considering I could grab 2 full games for the price of both)

    That's the official name of the game on the site. If you think it should be changed, suggest a change by clicking on the Game > Submit Game Information drop-down under the game's pic on its page.

    Not sure if anyone else is having issues, but I went on the xbox site and most of the games listed for sale don't appear at all. The ones that do appear, aren't at the sale price. I will try again later, hopefully it's just temporary.

    Killer Instinct Complete Collection is currently 25% off for everyone, but is not mentioned on Major Nelson's blog.

    WWE 2K15 Digital Deluxe Edition is on sale for everyone, not just those with Gold.

    FIFA 15 (Xbox 360) isn't mentioned on Major Nelson's blog and was reduced by 50% four days before the start of the sale so may not be part of this sale.

Not sure if it is part of the current XBL issues.

    Both games were lackluster in terms of story, atmosphere, level design, and so forth, but the second one improves basically every gameplay mechanic except where you get black holes from (because that whole random spawn thing in place of hearts was really stupid.) The ending of 2 is a matter of opinion I suppose, but I always give extra points to a game that goes with an ending where everything isn't all lollipops and rainbows because it's so rare. I was really hoping that

    The Borderlands 2 stuff is really messed up. All I can see on Xbox.com is the game itself. On my 360 when I go to the store I see the DLC listed but get an error when I click on one and nothing when I click on "See All."

Either the price is displayed as -1 or I get a "there's an issue with the marketplace" type error. Linking to the fill game comes back with "nothing found". Xbox.com seems messed up too but there is a known service issue with purchases.
