    lego lord of the rings for 4.99 is insane value if you even remotely enjoy the lord of the rings movies.

    Too bad it's only for Windows 10. Would definitely pick up the Halo: Spartan series for that price if it was for Windows 8.

    I'm confused, does that mean the Borderlands downloaded for my Xbox One to work using BC will have all DLC? Or do I have to purchase each DLC on the website (which shows a price) like I had to for the game itself (which did come up as free)
    The DLC appears in the ready to install list within the game's management in your 'my games nad app' section
    Incorrect. There is no attached DLC, when you download the BC game it is part of the main package so no extra parts.
    Explain to me why there is General knoxx and Claptraps rev on my HDD as separate items then, champ.

    Only Ned and Moxxi is in the main install/
    I have both versions installed and neither has any odd DLC attachments or individually listed DLC. Only way it would appear like that is if you installed the DLC because you bought it before or had the GoTY disc installed. Otherwise they won't be there champ.

    Dang... Some nice sales here - Might pick me up a few to add to the back-log clap
    A simple bad habit will mar an otherwise flawless character, as a single ink drop soils the pure white page.

    Why dont they seem to put dlc/season passes on sale seperatly anymore? Its always either the base game or a bundle containing the lot. What about the guys who already bought the game Micro$oft?
    I will not demand an answer but i will expect one

    Meh. This sale does not live up to all the hype and promotion. A lot of the same stuff on sale and not a lot of XBLA or DLC. Although I am still getting Isaac. :)

    Both Halo's should be playable on Windows 8 without any problems. They were made for Windows 8 and are compatible with Windows 10.

    Maybe the sale prices only show on Win10 and that's what they're on about?
    Pom poms at the ready, cheerleaders!

    A lot of sales but only one deal for me: Battleblock Theater.
    Paying 7,19 € is a lot for an Xbox live arcade game, at least for my standards (I rarely pay for any game more than 10 €) but it seems a fun game.
    I was also interested in Need for Speed Hot Pursuit but a couple of days ago I bought a used copy of that game paying more or less 6 €, shipping included.

    However, in 10 years I have only met 1 gamer from my friends list IRL!

    Happy 10th Anniversary Xbox 360 for yesterday. We have had some good times together haven't we, but it seems like only yesterday when we first met, when I picked you up from that store in town and took you back to my place.

    Da Lukinator said:Telltale collection at that price? Yay or nay? Never played any of them.Definitely yay. Tales from the Borderlands, Walking Dead: Season 1, and The Wolf Among Us have some of the best video game narratives I've ever experienced. Unfortunately for my wallet, I bought the bundle at full price. Worth it!

    Kennyannydenny said:togethawiistand said:Any sales on Windows Phone games? Why aren't those posted anymore?That's because the Red Stripe Deals mostly do not contain any Xbox enabled games anymore. There is actually a sale going on as you can see in the link above. They did put a lot of games that have always been free in there, but at least there's Halo: Spartan Strike and Halo: Spartan Assault for your phone smileAnyone with a Windows Phone 10 able to confirm they see the sale price? If not you will need to buy it on Windows 10 first then install it on your phone.

    Haha well my credit card is breathing a sigh of relief this week, picked up beyond eyes (unique experience and easy 1000G) and Zombiiiiii last week

    My backlog is also thanking me, would have grabbed Lego The Hobbit, but $10 is a bit much, considering it will be 5 at some predictable point in the future

    May grab Bully as it has been ages (8 years today pretty much...damn) since I played it and looks like I have 405 GS I could grab from it still, just add it to my after the GTASC playlist

    In case anyone has missed it, Dark Souls is BC
