    I want to think Fallout 4 season pass will be cheaper in the future. I have a big enough backlog to wait it out.

    Also, shame on anyone who didn't get Sunset Overdrive when it was GWG and paying for it now.
    Exception is those that are new comers to Xbox one that got a console from Santa 🎅 . I'm just saying..
    Fair enough ;)

    Very much appreciate the list!

    Is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition Worth $30? I've never played it and have wanted to.
    Indeed. Probably the best money I've spent on a game, and I bought the expansions at full price, the base game when it was about $40. $30 for it all is a steal in my opinion. I wasn't too concerned about the combat mechanics like a lot of others were though. I enjoyed the depth & detail in the game immensely to not care.

    Looks like we all three agree to be half right then. FYI I own it from GWG as well. 😎

    Don't Starve: Giant Edition is amazing. Everyone should play it and boost my ratio.

    Games I'm considering:

    10 Second Ninja X
    101 Ways to Die
    Castle Crashers Remastered
    Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin
    Mad Max
    Manual Samuel

    Seriously, one of the best games I've ever played, and a ludicrous amount of content for that price.

    Thanks.

    I knew Marvel Ultimate Alliance would go on sale at some point. But I still can't justify spending that much on those 2 games, especially when they didn't get remastered in any way.

    Mad Max at $10 is a steal!

    Why, oh why are they being so stubborn with Rebel Galaxy? It's been out almost a full year and has never been on sale. angry It's available on Steam for $6.79 right now, so why not Xbox?

    Doubtful for the near to mid future. Even with the discount, it is still ~$3.50 more than when it originally came out. The lowest I've seen it go since the price increase was, $30 on the current Steam sale, which is its original pricing.

    That being said, this sale, while having a lot of stuff, doesn't really have that many "deals". I'm hoping the Amazon digital sale tomorrow has better deals than this on something like Watch Dogs 2 & Rise of the Tomb Raider. Maybe Dead Rising 4 if its cheap enough.

    Sadly, these sales aren't that great. It would nice if some of these major titles had better sales.

    The only thing that interests me enough to be even remotely interested in paying the sale price for it is the Don't Starve Bundle. I own it on Steam, and I haven't even put but 2 or 3 hours MAX into it. Then again, I hardly play any of my Steam games, but still.
    Bah Humbug.

    Thanks Chewie, I would literally know dick all without this legendary shit each sale! clap Legend amongst wookies, to be sure.

    OT: I bought everything that's on sale here at Black Friday, so this is like a re-run roll
    What did you get then? Only thing I got was MGSV: The Phantom Pain, but got a lot of what I wanted in the Black Friday sale

    These sales aren't that great, especially if you live outside of the US. The games i am interested in have a terrible conversion rate. Let's use one of the LEGO games for example, $10 for America.....£22.50 for the UK. What the hell ? Mad Max is another one and it was the same with the Batman games last week.

    Another thing that has annoyed me is that some of these games that are supposed to be on special aren't even available for us in the UK. Catherine and Final Fantasy Type-0 are two games i am interested and they aren't even available outside of the US.

    Again, it's just a mix of deals that were on sale throughout the year with deals with gold, the difference is that they are priced higher. Even with the prices being cut, some of these games STILL don't match the price of physical copies. Lightning Returns on sale at £10 ? i may as well just get a physical copy cheaper on ebay.

    It's been a terrible year for sales on Xbox, we have had much better years than this. All we are getting now is games rehashed again and again and again.

    I would spend so much money on Season Passes/DLC if they actually put any of them on sale. But we only ever get discounts on the Gold Editions
    I really contemplated buying the gold edition of dead rising 4 because of that, but I didn't want to spend an extra 12 bucks or whatever it was(I am in Canada). I have been finding myself not that interested in dlc most of the time this generation because I haven't had an dlc that really grabbed me so far. I did buy lego star wars force awakens gold because it was only 3 bucks more. I would have probably bought blizzard mountain if it was on sale though.
