    What the what, no GTA 4??? what is going on around here? Probably in next week's sale or it might turn up to be GWG.

    Does borderlands dlc carry over from 360 to xb1?
  • Posted on 28 September 16 at 12:13
    I expected the DLC for DA:I on x360 to go on sale this week since last week was dedicated to the xone dlc's

    Anyways, this week my hard earned money will stay in my pocket as none of them so called 'sales' are worth buying them and some of them I already own on retail copy.

    As for Coffin Dodgers and Fenix Furia, I don't understand what these are doing on a way too performant xone console. They might have been fun 20 years ago on a Amiga500. These games look really low budget. Maybe Microsoft's way to 'launch' new developers?
    I honestly don't know and won't even bother to check that out either.

    Sorry if I sound harsh, but I expect new titles to be HD, heavily coded, with some in depth content, and xone worthy.
    Both previous games could easily fit on a floppy disk.

    The XB1 versions of Borderlands 2 and pre-seql already have all the DLC included with the game, so no. You get the XB1 DLC anyway.

    How does Fenix Furia compare difficulty-wise with Super Meat Boy?

    Really wish the Duke Nukem Forever DLC (SPY WHO CLONED ME) would go on sale once. Something just feels wrong paying more money for DLC than the game normally costs.

    Will pick up Axel & Pixel sometime this week. Oh, and I'm putting this here so people can refer to it later...but Axel & Pixel is smelling like a Backwards compatible OR delisting OR both. I'd recommend getting it now if it interests you.

    Axel & Pixel it is, can't say no to a nice game + easy completion at less than 2€

    Exactly! Not once on sale since 2011. I've also been waiting for Enslaved Pigsy's Perfect 10 DLC which has never been on sale once since coming out in 2010. These are two that have been on my list for a very long time.

    I think you might be right. We have had some really poor sales but this is just a joke. Last week was up there with the very worst too.

    Ha I've been waiting for Pigsy's Perfect 10 to go on sale too! I loved Enslaved, and while it shows as a completed game on TA it doesn't on my 360. If they ever discount the DLC it'll be just the excuse I need to go back to the game. I'd quite happily do another run through of the main story too.
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    Anyone play This War of Mine? It looks fairly interesting, but I've never heard of it. I wanted to find the disc version, but I guess it's only in the UK and it'll be a lot to ship it here.
    Achievement wise it takes about 20 hours to finish (less if you read the mechanics instead of learning from experience).

    Gameplay wise basically you scavenge across different areas to gain food/water and supplies that are used to make your base more secure/efficient.

    I had a blast with it and still play from time to time.
    You may have sold me on This War of Mine. I do enjoy an asset/resource gathering game from time to time, especially if there's upgradeable bases involved. Something just so satisfying about it.

    And if anybody likes quirky point-and-click games, Axel and Pixel is well worth it for $2.

    They're both part of the Xbox Ones ID@Xbox program to allow independent developers to publish games to the console. The 360 had a similar program but the games were on their own marketplace and didn't have gamerscore. You don't have to buy them but I personally like supporting independent development. Not everyone wants AAA all of the time and some of the titles are really very good, especially considering some were made by one person in their bedroom. Each to their own though.

    Nope because Borderlands 2 on the Xbox One has all the DLC already.

    Been waiting on a sale for the Borderland TPS dlc so I can complete this finally. Will pick up that and Axel & Pixel for sure. Debating on Dad beat Dads, like the price point but not really keen on beat 'em up games.

    I wonder if they just phone up Rockstar if they don't have anything planned.
