Hmm, Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight looks very good, but I wanna wait for more than 30% off.

Might finally invest in RWBY. That shadow of mordor GOTY offer is insane too! Shame I already have it.

No Stranglehold DLC? Worst sale ever. Hard pass.


Side note: Not a hero is an amazing little game.
Midway has been dead for years, that DLC, will never, ever go on sale sadly. I'll never have that game fully completed, I'm not pay 15 bucks for MP DLC.

Same, that's why I'm resisting the urge to buy! Would make sense with the new one coming out shortly.
Hope so. I'm tempted to get it for that price, but I'll never get round to playing it this year so may as well wait and hold out in the hope of it going GWG.
Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

I don't get it every week its nothing but whining. If you are not going to buy anything then just do not. There does not need to even be a sale they owe you nothing. Do you go to the store and complain shampoo is not on sale? Of course not. The bitching and complaining is unbelievable.
I am an assistant manager at a retail store and I can tell you that people do complain that things aren't on sale pretty much every day. "Last time I bought this it was on sale, why isn't it on sale now?" " Can you give me your employee discount?" " What kind of deal can you give me on this?" People are ridiculous.

Most definitely worth it, I loved it. Even better since Shadow of War only a few months away.

If there's only ONE game you buy on sale this week, definitely make it Stardust Galaxy Warriors - only TWO bucks right now & such a great game! Out of the hundreds of indie games I own on Xbox One, Stardust Galaxy Warriors is actually in my personal top 10. Such a steal - dont miss it guys. Also, most of the gamerscore is easy enough but there are a few tricky achs, but nothing too crazy.
+1

I picked it up last time it was on sale as I was looking for local co-op game to play with my mate. I hadn't played a shmup since the PS1 days so was sceptical as to whether or not I would get on with it. Played through the first level and my mate and I were wondering what we got ourselves in to as it was particularly uneventful. 4 hours later it turns out that Stardust Galaxy Warriors was the shmup I never realised I needed. With all the RPG style skill/stat upgrades, multiple NG+'s and playthrough-specific achievements, it kept me going back for more (a couple were a little hard for me though). Fantastic soundtrack to boot. This game really revived my interest in the genre. Achievements unlock for all players if anyone is wondering.

Already got Mordor this week, and the highly recommended Stardust from a previous sale...looks like Bug Butcher may be the only possible one.

$4.00 for Shadow of Mordor is a great deal! I borrowed the game from my brother, and it's quite good, but I didn't finish it. It's tough...but for $4.00 I should get it and finish it, and anyone who hasn't played it should too!

Especially after a huge sale....Those post add nothing of value to this site- I do appreciate the ones w/ recommendations though.
As do I ty all for your recommendations of games. Other than that I have no idea why you post anything.
Sold.

M+E+H = MEH
You failed algebra didn't you?
Well if we assume M, E and H are all equal to an arbitrary value A, then the equation can be rewritten as a 3A=A^3. Divide out an A, so 3=A^2, therefore A=±root3. We also know intuitively that M, E and H can be 0 for the equation to check out, but now we also know they can equal root3 and -root3.

We know that if two of the variables are equal to 0, then the equation cannot check out as the MEH would always equal to 0, whereas M+E+H would equal a positive or negative integer. However, if one variable is equal to 0, then there are an infinite number of possibilities, if you let those two variables be the same number, but with separate signs.

If M, E and H are not equal to one another, then we can generalize by saying one of the three variable is larger than the other 2 (we'll say H). Therefore M≤E≤H. With this, we know that 3H≥MEH, and therefore 3≥ME. If 3≥ME, M≠0 and E≠0 then (M,E) can only be (±1,±1), (±1,±2), (±1,±3) (M and E values are interchangeable of course).

By substituting our points into M+E+H=MEH, then we can find that there are no possible values of H that satisfy (1,1), (-1,-1), but there are H values that satisfy (1,2), (1,-2), (-1,-2), (-1,2), (1,3), (1,-3), (-1,-3) and (-1,3), which are 3, 1/3, 3/4, -1/3, 1/2, -2, -1/2 respectively.

These are just a few solutions, and technically, thisisgman is infinitely right. He's infinitely wrong too... but still.

Race the Sun is a decent game. It was one of the PS+ games a few years back and has a quick addicting style of dont-crash-into-this-wall sort of gameplay. $2 is worth it, but it isn't an easy 100%.

Shadow of Mordor w/ all the DLC for $4? If you haven't played this game yet, throw away whatever you're playing right now and get on this. This is seriously worth the weeks you will probably spend maxing this game out.

Probably on sale because of the impending release, perhaps also worth thinking which edition is most likely to be a GWG title if it should ever be a GWG at all, GOTY or standard. Weighing up gaming inudustry sales logistics is nigh on impossible as there are always the odd exception to the rule of "it's all about minting as much as possible from it's customer base" to being completely against the grain where it seems impossible and sales are nil to less, f... it hold that price and never drop it which must have happended many times since the 360 launch.

Chances are it will be on sale again though, maybe...

M+E+H is probably an easier calculus in all honesty.

even if shadow comes games with gold there is no way you will get the season pass cheaper than $6 anyhow so it's worth the buy anyhow

Sorry.....the title is wrong. It should be "the xbox one jokes of the week"
Again this is a site to help gamers. If you don't like what a 3rd party did not TA just keep it to yourself. All it does is create negativity on a fantastic web site.

I'll probably pick up Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight...I want Dex as well, but it continues to be stubborn with pricing, but I guess I have to be stubborn too :).
