I've been waiting for the Batman Arkham games to be on sale again but haven't they been cheaper than this before now? I'm sure Arkham City was stupidly cheap, like half this sale price again or am I thinking of a Steam sale?

I have a lot of games I have yet to start or finish. This looks like a good week to not buy anything and start getting my backlog cleaned up a little bit. + I have gamefly and games with gold so i am not to worried about missing out on anything this week

No deals for Win8There are always 6 Red Stripe deals for W8 and WP every week, just last week none of them were XBL games, which is all we care about on TA. The version of The Bridge with achievements is an Xbox One game.

No, the WP version is not Live enabled so has no achievements or link to achievements on any other platform.

Hi Chewie,

I just checked the game on my WP, and in the main menu there is an option of achievements with 20 of it,

Please, Chewie, may you also advise me about buying the standard or the luxe edition of toy soldier for Xbox one? Thanks

Those are only in-game achievements. They don't hook up to Live so won't affect your gamerscore.

I can't really help with Toy Soldiers as I don't have any experience with the game. I believe some other people have commented about it in this thread though.

EDIT: Looking into it, it seems that the Hall of Fame Edition just includes packs for toys based on other franchises (GI Joe, He-Man, Assassin's Creed) so it depends how much you love those franchises and want to play as them in the game.

Thank you very much to clarify it. I thought those achievements count on the gamerscore.

Also thanks for the tip on toy soldier. Then the packs do not help to get the achievements more easy. They are just for fun

Seems weird that it wouldn't be available in France too. Maybe there was an issue with the NBA licensing.
