They count as separate games, each with their own achievements.Not sure he meant that. You can't get achievements for Diablo 3 with ultimate edition.
What you can (or should, but is up to you) do, is play Diablo 3 (xbox360) then play Diablo 3 UE (xbox360) and import save from Diablo 3 (xbox360).
After that you can import the save from Diablo 3 UE (xbox360) to Diablo 3 UE (xboxONE). Or you can export/import at certain points in the game and stack those a bit quicker.

There is Diablo III which is completely separate and then there is Diablo III: Reaper of Souls (Ultimate Evil Edition) (unless something is different digitally), they are two separate games entirely and the one on sale here should only be the later. There was a misnomer on the box that it somehow included Diablo III, but it was in name and basic gameplay only. The game changed quite a bit and thus adopted a whole new set of achievements. Quite frustrating actually if you bought into the fact you could play both versions of the game with the Ultimate Evil Edition.

Anyway, only Burnout Paradise for me this week. With this going BC at some point, digital seems the way to go here at only $3 (and I can dump my disc version. yeah!).

Bought Alien Isolation "The Collection". I have heard good things about that game so now it was finally time to get it since the price is very low.

Sorry, The "Yes" at the beginning of my original reply wasn't supposed to be there. I've edited it for clarity. Too early in the morning and not enough coffee yet.

I picked up LEGO The Lord of the Rings

I had been eyeing it for awhile and $5 is a great price for it.

Was really hoping for Tales from the Borderlands & Sacred 3 DLC on 360 but ended up getting all of Life is Strange instead.

Dear Microsoft, can we have deals like this every week? That is how you keep your customers much happier and poor.
K? Thx <3

Bully: Scholarship Edition
LEGO Batman
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
LEGO The Lord of the Rings
Toy Story 3

More games to add the ever growing backlog.
LEGO Batman 2 was the best of the trilogy. Bully was a fantastic game, even with dated graphics.
Ask me about my rock collection.

Toy Story 3
Cars
Hitman Blood Money

Take my money Microsoft lol

As much as the currency rates suck here in Canada for most things (iphone 700US/850CAD)

At least for the lower priced 360 games we get them on par with the US which means a $5 game is just 3.61 US

Just a tip for anyone region hopping ;)

BTW Great List, always happy when I see this last rather then Major Nelsons % which means clicking through everything

I have delayed buying Bully as I kept thinking it was going to be GwG but it has not been added to BC. No Rockstar games have been added, so I thought now is the time.

Coming up in Feb, Rockstar add Bully to BC and MS announce it as GwG. facepalm

Wow. The weekly deals always seem more interesting than the entire lot of daily deals that lead up to 2016. Definitely picking up a few of them with GTASC around the corner. Especially those XB1 kinect games
