    In terms of skate 3, the forums are inconclusive whether or not some achievements are obtainable. Can somebody put this clearly? Is skate 3 still 100% completable (dlc included) or not?

    Does anyone know if there is way to turn off notifications for wish list items going on sale?

    If not, I'm starting a thread on the site wish list forum.

    Seriously. I'd probably pay a couple bucks to run through it again on X1 but I already have the 360 version.

    Only thing I'm at all interested in this week is Farming Simulator 15. Still more than I really want to pay though, and the estimated completion time is a little high for my liking as well...

    At least I can save my money for other things this week.

    I doesn't appear so. I just loaded up my copy and I'm unable to connect to skate online services which means that the 2 achievements to upload and rate community content would no longer work. It also looks like no one has gotten those achievements since the end of May.

    But this has happened in the past and the service has been restored so it may work again in the future.

    Probably gonna get Faery because it's back compat.

    The $10 bundle has 3/4ths home which has all broken achievements just as a heads up.

    Ok, it definitely feels like taking a risk. Gonna have to think about this one. Thanks

    Oh look, Elite: Dangerous has appeared again, and this time in a better package than the last time it was on sale and I passed it up. Well, I told myself that the next time it was on sale I would pick it up, so glad I waited and I can now get the bundle!

    Debating that 3-game pack, too.

    Figured I'd go ahead and pick up Faery. I mean an easy RPG to complete for only $1? Sounds like a deal to me.
