    If anyone hasn't played Life is Strange yet, pick it up now. Best game of last year.

    I personally picked up the Metro Redux Bundle and Trackmania Turbo.

    Darth Knight said:Just realised I've bought Shadow of Mordor for £17.50 when it's $10 in the US. Booo.I knew the gbp had fallen in value since Brexit, but not that much shock

    Too bad for the price difference on Lego games in dollars or Euros. Now if only my 2nd One would let me buy games for dollars (set it up for US), but PayPal isn't co-operative lol

    I've similar thoughts to many other posters as that Faery game looks interesting enough at the price

    Picked up Mirror's Edge and Ori. Looking forward to playing them soon! Holding off getting Far Cry Primal - that price is still to high. Can get a physical copy for slightly less already, and by the time I get round to being able to play it it'll likely be even cheaper.
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    Great work Chewie, so nice to see all the discounts in one place!

    Just one point - Injustice: Gods Among Us is actually £8.74 in the UK (only £6.24 with Gold) rather than the £12.49 you've got listed. Only want to point it out because it's such a great fighter and at that price is a bit of a bargain considering that retail discs are holding value quite well.

    In the essence of consistency
    Missing the 'off' after the Assassin's Creed Unity sales percentages.
    Missing a space between the DiRT Rally percentages and 'off'.
    The Just Cause 2 360 $ link is messed up.
    Missing the 'off' after the 360 Lego Marvel's Avengers sales percentages.

    Also, gotta like how there are 50 bundles (which aren't all season passes to be fair) and only 5 season passes on sale (for the One at least).

    Good roundup, honestly surprised it's up already.
  • Posted on 07 July 16 at 13:17Permalink
    Damn, I already own most of the good stuff!

    Gears UE & Fallout 4 w/ season pass seem like a steal! Wish they'd put the DLC on sale.

    I can't pass up some of these, even though I haven't bought a game in over a year. Since I got my One a few months ago, I've been wanting Shadows of Mordor. Also as someone else said, the Saints Row Metro Double Pack looks to be a steal at that price so will snag that too. Those games should last me another year.

    Also, even more importantly, thanks Chewie for that nigh impossible compilation. It amazes me you actually did all that for free because you LIKE doing it....

    I'm curious... How do you fetch the prices anyway? Can you query that information somehow, or is it simply a collaboration among people with accounts in different regions?

    Bought plenty at this sale:
    Faery: Lords of Avalon, Mars: War Logs, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger and the biggest purchase, the Dragon Age Inquisition bundle.

    Still might buy something else especially if they make another applicable BC announcement. I'm hoping for Bound by Flame (which is a Spiders/Focus Interactive title and both Faery and Mars are made by the same people and also BC).

    And since I run a BC blog site, here are some corrections for you Chewie (but fantastic work overall):

    Saints Row IV should be marked as BC
    Witcher 2 should be marked as BC
    Counterstrike: GO should be marked as BC (which has already been pointed out by many)
    finally...Realms of Ancient War (or RAW) is NOT BC. (However, I think it's a darn good possibility that it will eventually be as such).

    Anybody knows if oxenfree and #idarb on windows 10 have achievements? Do they stack? if you buy those you get them for xbox1 too? I ask because both have a better deal on win10.
