I bought the Metro Redux bundle for that price in the recent Black Friday sales. So far I've played Metro 2033 & I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Thoroughly enjoyable & fantastic value for money.

Nordic Games doesn't have a very good reputation to me. Both Darksiders 2 and its Death-initive Edition (great name though) have a single unobtainable achievement. Not even the same one!

I also don't really like that they bought the IP and then just re-released both games on the new generation of hardware. But that might just be my own lack of interest in graphical remakes, I'm fine just playing the originals.

Because the price just dropped today along with plenty of other titles which will be part of the aforementioned Countdown to 2017 sales that officially kick off tomorrow

The deals are now live at: http://www.storeparser.com/en-NL/xbox-one/deals/
Not sure if that's all of them. But I just got Tales from the Borderlands Complete for just 6,60 EUR.
The season pass is still 15 EUR!

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.
Destiny is now $26.12 CAD ($19.46 USD/£15.72 GBP), so if I take of the $12 that makes Rise of Iron $14. SOLD smile

This could well be a pricing mistake as it looks like they have applied the sale discount twice, so jump on it if you are interested.

Yeah. They also published deadfall adventures which has an unobtainable. I really don't think they care that much about what they attach their name to.

I'll be happy to send any reasonable critique to Nordic Games, PM me your explanations and I'll look into it, or make a thread and I'll share it with them, perhaps they'll join the conversation.
Looking for writers for gamingirl.com. PM me for more information.

It was a mistake which has now been fixed. It is now $40.19 (33% off).

The DWG sales have ended early. They usually last until Tuesday morning.

I was going to buy Darksiders deathinitive version but is now full price. Oh well, will have to wait until it is on sale agan for about the same or cheaper, certainly not buying it at full price with broke achievements.

If it was not for daily deals would have bought it sooner, was seeing if there may have been something else to buy instead.

Seems like a gltch as games are still advertised for sale, but have no discount, and no new games for DWG, although with countdown sales they may not bother.

Although they have frequently overrun into the Tuesday, sale prices have been known to occasionally revert early on the Monday before so leaving them to the last day is risky business.

Pssh. Superhot is still on sale, even though the rest aren't.

Ditto on the Darksiders 2. I meant to buy it yesterday, but just forgot. Ahh well.
