Warner Bros games are always more expensive outside the US, something to do with taxes I think I read. Still ill still get star wars since its only a tenner.

I picked up Mad Max as I've been wanting to try that for a while but didn't want to pay the price.
I'm saving my game pass trial for when I want to play it so I don't have to pay. wink
Mad Max may get removed from game pass next month.

Been debating picking up some US currency cards for a while, looking at this sale it looks like this would be the time to do it! I've been eyeing Scrabble for a while and wishing it was available in the UK, plus the difference on price for those LEGO games means I might even have enough left over to splash on Energy Cycle too.

Mad Max was a great game, everyone should check it out if you like open world games. For $5, its a steal!

I just did precisely that after noticing this morning how much cheaper Lego Star Wars and Mad Max were in the US.

Having problems redeeming them at the moment, but that seems to be an issue with aspects of the MS websites more generally. If all else fails, I'll just region switch on the console when I get home later and do it that way.

I think the comments about it being a Warner Bros issue must be right. I picked up Batman Arkham Knight when it was on sale a few months ago and that was considerably cheaper on the US marketplace than in the UK - not just a dodgy exchange rate issue.

Where are you buying the codes from if you don't mind me asking? I have been thinking about doing this for a while, only thing stopping me is I don't want to get banned.

Amazon. I just entered a US address (I have in-laws there so used theirs - but you can google any address) and paid with my usual UK payment card.

Offgamers also sell them.

No risk of getting banned. The MS mantra has been that if you have a valid payment means, you can buy from any region you choose. They've made it harder to redeem credit for anything other than your own region but you can still do it through the console or by choosing the Redeem a code option at the payment stage if you're buying through the website.

Spec Ops; The Line for me! Super fun and unique. Used to own it YEARS ago, but lent it to a friend and never got it back. Only three achievements left to mop up.

I hate seeing the discounts then clicking on the link to find these are Gold only... Hitman would have been nice...
... With the free games you get via gold... It's worth it...

It's the most excited I've ever been for a Lego game and the most disappointed I've been with a Lego game. I'm not just saying that

I'd definitely recommend Child of Light, at first glance it may look like it's aimed at younger gamers but it's a beautiful game with a story that's genuinely touching at times

I read quite a few reviews saying that and many saying its still a buggy mess. Its $17 used atm so it wont be long before I can grab a physical copy for the same price. I appreciate not having to sell my soul to WB games today. TYVM clap

Wondering if I should treat myself to demons crystals or a box of Timbits.
Nice way of seeing things. I watched some vids of Demons Crystal and I shall choose the Timbits.
Welcome to TA, where stats are made up and some achievements do not matter.

Hmm Shadow of Mordor season pass may be a nice deal.
