Metro Redux is highly recommended. Two games, great single player FPS campaigns at that, is a steal at that price.

This one does not contain the base game. In fact the base game is now only available digitally as part of a full collection including all the DLC (including Rise of Iron) so it's probably not worth getting the Taken King on its own.
To add to what Chewie said, Taken King also includes the Expansion Pass, so that is $75 worth of content for $12 (although I already own $35 worth of it).

What I need to figure out, is if I buy the Taken King can I play the Taken King without owning Rise of Iron. Sadly Rise of Iron is an in-game only purchase ($30), so if there is a sale on it we wouldn't know about it.

Destiny was $39 in the Black Friday sale, so if you take off the $12 for Taken King, that made Rise of Iron $27 (saving $3, or 10% off). I think I shall just wait for a better sale on Destiny to pick up both add-ons at the same time.

I bought the Never Alone bundle, Fragments of Him and the Escapists DLC.

They look like pretty easy completions, and since I got The Escapists for free through GWG, I feel no problem giving back a little bit.

I wish they would fix Darksiders II so bad. I'd buy the One version in a heartbeat.
I think they did! I read somewhere it was fixed for unobtainebles. Worth to research it at least.

Quite sure it does not contain the main game - game page at xbox.com should say so.

It's funny how different people have different opinions. Never Alone was one of the worst games I have ever endured. I was also not a big fan of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. I am generally pretty easy-going and enjoy most games I play. Those were probably among the worst I have played with Never Alone topping the chart. I could probably count the games I have played that I disliked on my two hands.
Pretty sure the difference on what you look at in t hose two games. Both were kinda annoying in controls (though Brothers did run smoothly, but why the fuck didn't they include a co-op mode?) - while both had a marvelous story to tell, Never Alone even had some lovely documentary in it.

Nope. They fixed the more recent re-master:

Darksiders Warmastered Edition Achievements

But the Darksiders II re-master still has an unobtainable:
Darksiders II Deathinitive EditionBFAThe BFA achievement in Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition worth 10 pointsUnlock Everything

Shame because I might have considered it in the sale if it wasn't for things like this. Pretty bad that both re-masters shipped with broken achievements! warning

Warmastered Edition (DS1) and Deathinitive Edition (DS2) are both Xbox One re-masters of the Xbox 360 originals. Both of the Xbox One versions had unobtainables at launch. Deathinitive still does.

Nothing for me (thankfully my wallet cries) but if you have not had the pleasure of playing the Metro games you absolutely have to jump on that deal.
One does not simply tK some of the day. tK all day.

Considered Remember me, but once again its cheaper to buy from the used second hand market (where I can sell the game disk on after completion) than these sales.

I think it covers a wide area in terms of space or scope. smile
