    Pretty good prices on the Forza Double Pack! But the MUA re-releases will need to be discounted further before I double dip.

    I do want Axiom Verge but I can wait for a deeper discount whilst I chip away at my backlog

    I haven't played Ultimate Alliance 2 yet. And really enjoyed the first one. Is the second one worth it?

    Axiom Verge is worth every penny at that price point.
    Ask me about my rock collection.

    I'll admit to being tempted by Fall of Cybertron (enjoyed it on the 360, would probably enjoy it again on the One), but I wish it was $20 or $25 instead.
    This is a signature. It has words in it.

    The second one is definitely an inferior game, but it's still okay on its own merits. If the first was a 9/10 game, the sequel is easily a 7/10; not bad, but a noticeable step down. Ironically, I found that the sequel has aged a bit better, but that's just me.

    The X1 ports on the other hand are overpriced drivel and should be avoided at all costs.

    Agreed, never understood why the ports are so god damn expensive for quite old games at this point now. Gonna wait till they are way under £10 for sure no matter how long it takes, not like they are priority anyway.

    €52.50 is the sale price for a base game that didn't sell particularly well or get rave reviews. What a joke the gaming industry has become.

    Nothing for me this week.. Which is a relief, my backlog is already long as it is lol.
    Soon I will shed this skin, turn to the devil, then I'll never reminisce.

    I'm going to be honest. I want the Marvel Ultimate Alliance's. But I wouldn't even do it when the spring sale had them for $30 for both of them. They look basically the same, not updated from the originals. If they have been updated, it hasn't been enough. And I think I'd do $20-25 for them both. But $20 for each is not for me.

    Nope. Nothing for me this week. Oh well. Good for my wallet. Lol

    Didnt sell particularly well? It have topped most of the big salescharts, and still is..

    I do agree about the price though..i dont understand why anyone would buy digital content in euro, instead of $

    I'd like to pick up fall of cybertrom, but it's still way too expensive for something I could probably get for $5 on disc on 360.

    I'd do $30 for both (which apparently I missed during the spring sale?), but yeah, not more than that.

    Is there a reason why the ratios are so insanely high on the Marvel UA games? I don't remember them being particularly difficult on the 360, are the versions on the One harder or is it a case of artificially high ratios?
