    What a steamer... But Bully is well worth the money. It's probably one of the more underrated Rockstar titles. Except for Manhunt. They need to revitalize that one.

    Thanks for the info! Kind of a bummer that they dropped the idea of GWG-related deals in favor of rewards in a program that's limited to certain regions though.

    Cant believe they got the balls to shut down servers then still try to have a sale on a game like end war. I think you can still buy army of two dlc and its not even playable. That's M$ for ya.
    I know nothing was mentioned about army of two, Im just saying. Its like buying a rock band track pack then accidently buying the songs you already own individualy. I am sure greedy M$ could keep that from happening if they gave a shit.
    If you dont believe I have 10 xboxes check vic viper cheev for oct 28th 2012 in otomedius excellent.

    No, seriously, I just need to pick up The Ballad of Gay Tony and I was waiting for it.

    No one is going to believe me cry
    To be honest no one probably cares what dlc you need....

    But hey man you've posted so at least you ain't dead thanks for letting us all know toast

    I would not be surprised to see Metro Last Light DLC on sale...next week. If I remember correctly, it's always the second week, not the first that the sales for the DLC for GOG come out. Now the whole rewards thing might change that, but...we'll see. I'll hope for $10 or less for the Season Pass. But I'm not paying $15, period.

    Typically you see the DLC go on sale for a GwG somewhere between 2-4 weeks after it was made free (such that it occasionally catches the tail end of the freeness, but typically it is no longer free when the sale is started).

    Same boat. I've passed up on Bully so many times not realizing how expensive the retail disk really is...
    It's crazy. I bought it for £6 pre-owned at the end of 2010 in HMV and sold it a year later for £20+. The shop that I bought it from then had used copies for £25-£30!

    I think it went out of printing and the price just mooned it.

    Just bought Arkham Knight online last night for $34 and waiting for LEGO Jurassic World to dip below $30... or RedBox.

    Nothing for me here.

    Would've bought GTA4+DLCs for cheaper (have it on PC but runs like crap), don't think I'm willing to spend like 15€ for a 2008 game.

    2,50€ for Conviction looks good enough to try the series though. I would buy Double Agent but heard the 360 version is different (and worse) than the Xbox one.

    Got excited for the deals, looked at them and realized I owned everything I wanted on it... which were few because their games are so bland laugh No but seriously Rockstar games seem to always be on sale so either people aren't buying them or whoever is in charge of listing them forgot that they recently put them on sale not too long ago.
    Get Hype, Bring the Noise!

    It was okay but that card game dlc is buggy and there's a lot of connection issues.

    I try to pop in and say this every time there's an R* sale:

    The Ballad of Gay Tony and Red Dead Redemption are both absolutely worth it. GTAIV: TLaD and RDR: Undead Nightmare are also great, but you definitely won't go wrong with the other two at minimum.

    Also, a note to anyone who played through RDR once, a surprising amount of people didn't realize that RDR has a false* ending and a 'true' ending. It's not as dumb advice as it sounds, as I've had to point it out to multiple people. If you've gotten the true ending, you should know it. It's just a matter of noticing that a mission showed up, and not quitting earlier thinking it's all over.

    *Edit: Well, more of what felt like an ending.

    I'm sick of seeing the "sale" for GTAV for the One. Its still $60! Its just a way for them to push their shark cards. I sure hope that no one is buying them.
