BF3 Premium isn't on sale. It's a permanent price drop.

Finally csved and bought state of decay and it's dlc after its been on sale a million times. Wanting to see why MS is hyping this company up so much as one of its big 2017 exclusives. Is it any good?

I should continue on the multiplayer achievements on the first one so you might have me.

You bought it, might as well play it & find out for yourself!

I'm not a total asshole though, and will still answer your question with my opinion. I found it to be OVERALL enjoyable but felt really worn out on it by the end of the game (the last quarter of the game I'd say). It felt more like a tedious chore than fun & I only finished it because I'd gone that far already, otherwise I might have stopped playing.

No. The physical platinum edition of Fable II included DLC. Unfortunately, the bundle, even though it was released after the platinum edition, did not include the DLC. It is still a very good deal. The Fable III DLC is free. The two Fable II DLCs will run you about 17 USD. There is no Fable Anniversary DLC.

Edited to add: There are free versions of the Fable II DLC. However, one cannot play them in multi-player mode. This affects not only DLC play but also main game multi-player play. Fable II requires players hooking up in multiplayer mode to have the same game versions--main game plus DLC. I was playing the platinum edition and found I could only hook up with players who had both premium DLCs that, together, cost about 17 USD or come with the Platinum edition of Fable II.

There's Fable Anni DLC on the PC Version. Lots of it too. Was none of it ported over to the 360?

The Fable Anniversary is a great deal if you don't have the game. This was one of the games that made the original XBox great and the remaster for the 360 was exceptionally well done.

If you don't have Fable II and Fable III, the bundle is also a good deal but, as I said in an earlier post, you have to tack on another 17 USD to get the two Fable II DLCs. The bundle does not work like Steam bundles. In other words, the price is not adjusted if you have any of the digital content in the bundle. So, you have to do a little math to see what deal is best for you.

To help you make your decision on the bundle, if you search around, you can find the Platinum Edition of Fable II (that includes the DLC) for about 20 USD--only 3 USD more than buying the DLC separately. It will probably be used. Nevertheless, if you're going to be playing it on the X1 (it is backwards compatible), you really shouldn't care if the 360 version is used or new.

Always thought Alien Rage looked interesting, I'll take it at 3 bucks.
