I do give props to Target for coming up with some different sales spins when it comes to games.

Looks like it will be cheaper to buy the Dishonored game of the year edition than to buy the DLC separate with the digital copy.

They do, it's just not part of any specific sale and just their normal prices (although they also tend to sell out very fast) http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/list/Action/...

I'm not understanding the Halo MC Collection pre-order? The Pinata Skull. Did MS remove it from all 4 games? Then, make me (us) have to enter in one of those long codes to put it back in?

Shoot a grunt in the head for confetti and an extra noise. Pre-order something that is going to have a near-infinite print run?

Huh?

THIEF for $13 on Xbox One sounds like a good deal from Gamefly. I've heard mixed opinions on the game though. I don't have a gamefly account. Does anyone know if you need an account to buy games from them?

That's not the Piñata Skull that you described. You're referring to Grunt Birthday Party. Piñata made it's first appearance in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and it gives you unlimited ammo and grenades. It wasn't in any of the other Halo games though.

Actually I have to correct myself. The unlimited ammo skull was called Bandana in Halo CEA. I forgot what Piñata does but it's definitely not the same as Grunt Birthday Party.

There's some pretty good deals going on right now though.

It makes the enemy drop grenades when you punch them. Makes me wonder why anyone would preorder that over infinite ammo and grenades.
