    Probably gonna get Life is Strange for the 360. Though I do wish the Season Pass was more than 20% off.

    Might pick up episode one of Life is Strange. $16 is still a little much to spend on something I'm still not sure about. And with Broken Sword 5 and Back to the Future coming out, and Game of Thrones and Tales From the Borderlands still in my backlog I'm hesitant to buy *more* adventure games.

    ...I honestly never thought I'd have too many adventure games on the Xbox to play.

    Seriously!? Of all the DLC out there that has never been on sale they toss out Gears 3 DLC? This is getting old fast. How about the DLC that is two or more years old just drop in price permanently? I don't need Games on Demand I need the DLC at a price that isn't more than the full game. Still feel dirty for paying $10 for Enslaved's DLC when I bought the full game, brand new for $8.

    Those 360 sales are a new level of stale garbage, I know I saw them both at least twice already on sale in recent months.

    Sensei Neo said:Hey can someone explain the DOA5 situation to me please?

    When i click the link it shows the 'Core fighters pack'... not full game?

    I can see it says achievements are unlockable in the demo but is this really true?

    Thanks
    Core Fighters is the full game. You can get all the achievements in the Free (unlimited) Trial. The add-ons (including Leifang) will not work with the Free Trail.

    CanadianWhizKid said:vQuaza said:Where is the logic in the Australian pricing?
    If I buy Life is Strange Complete Season on Xbox One it costs $21.56.
    Whereas if I buy Episode One and the Season Pass separately it costs $21.53. I know it's only 0.03 but why do they do that facepalm
    In Canada, I can save $0.10 by buying all 5 episodes together on XB1, instead of buying Episode 1 and season pass for last 4 episodes.
    US and Canada are how it should be. Mixed percentages are a tricky thing. If you discount an item in a bundle by 50% and another item by 20% it depends how much of the total cost the 50% off item makes up as to whether the bundle will be better value. If everything was 20% off, it would of course work out fine.

    branstoneboy said:Never Alone Arctic Collection is on sale as well I believe. It is:
    Never Alone Arctic Collection (includes Foxtales) 20% off for a limited time (Gold Exclusive)

    I'm not complaining as I only buy Xbox One titles now, but surely with the move to next gen, we should be seeing more and more 360 sale items, not less. Makes little sense.

    Is the Rally Expansion worth it for Forza Horizon (aside from achievements, of course) or can it be obtained in some other fashion (on disc, season pass, etc.)?

    Can't be obtained cheaper. It's been on sale like twice ever. Very worth it. Definitely buy.

    Just the Life is Strange bundle and Ziggurat for me. After everything I've heard about Life, there's no way I could pass it up.

    Free Riegn said:No one is really talking about Ziggurat... this is a great game that should be supported at that price guys :)Never even heard of it till now. From the gameplay on YouTube, it seems decent enough for $7.50, and you say it's great. If it's anything less, I'm coming for you!
