Guardians of Middle Earth has broken DLC. You don't need DLC to 100% it. Buying DLC subjects you to the infamous Gold Mode Glitch, which still hasn't gotten a proper fix, and probably never will. It's a fun game, but don't get any DLC unless you want to delete saves & content every time you play.

FYI.

Got a couple of decent titles I might pick up depending on my Bing payouts this week ^_^

$4 for Mafia II and under $10 for Forza Horizons. I think I'll grab them. I'm a huge Forza fan so that one is a must but does anyone have an opinion on Mafia II?

Definitely getting Bioshock infinite pass; need to finish the DLCs on that! Seems best to buy reduced season pass.

Think im going to pass buying any other new games this time though, need to finish off what I have got and focus more on my job XD

Cool! I bought Spec Ops on my birthday and the disc didn't work....so rather than spend another 9 quid for a replacement disc I'll just download it for 3 now! Sold!

Yes, State of Decay DLC is on sale. I might also pick up Left 4 Dead. Better deals than last week.

I can't pass up Spec Ops: The Line for that price.

Hey, Microsoft. If you're going to put retail games on sale for 75% off, how about putting the DLC on sale for 75% off too?

I'm never going to pay more for DLC than the full retail game.

For mafia There's a disc that has an MSRP of $10 which includes both DLC's for $10. The total cost on the marketplace is $20.

The cheapest the DLC has been on sale is $5 each. So getting the platinum hits is the way to go...

Wolf among us and walking dead season 2 are getting a retail release on the 360 and One. They aren't particularly long games, so renting them may be preferable. They will also likely be $10 like the walking dead season is at some point if you wait.

TMNT may be delisted at some point when the license runs out, so this sale might be a warning... I'd snatch it up if you ever want it.

Only 15% off for Bioshock Infinite pass? Why even bother?

Unfortunately I'll probly get it just because I'm tired of waiting.

Ooh, glad I waited for State of Decay's Lifeline so I'll grab that and Spec Ops.

Also interested by Mafia, its just a shame the dlc hasn't gone on sale too. And I would like the season pass for both WAU and Infinite but I should probably wait a little longer to see if they'll go cheaper, got too many games to play as it is.
