    Always best to keep your expectations low when it comes to any sort of M$ sale.
    I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

    I think the bigger sale is you can get X1S console bundles from the Microsoft store for 199 USD. Available bundles are Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3, Madden NFL 18, and Halo 5: Guardians.

    Oh look another good sale for Elite. I'm sure I'll forget to get it yet again this week

    Just a reminder that Sword Coast Adventures is being delisted at the end of the month
    Hi,
    I’m new to Xbox. What do you mean by ‘delisted?’
    Sorry if it’s a stupid question.

    Ordinary list but I'll probably pick up that 'walking simulator' since its so cheap.

    Probably Legend of Korra and Fall of Cybertron for me. Been meaning to get the former for ages, latter I've been waiting on a sale for.

    However, free advice to anyone interested in Elite: Dangerous - grab the Horizons season pass while it's on sale. Comes with all the previous four 2.x updates (as listed) and all four upcoming "Beyond" 3.x updates during 2018.
    I work on achievements. Life sanity tip: don't work on achievements.

    Delisted means that the game will no longer be available for purchase from the digital store. If the game has a physical release (disc) you can still find it in stores.

    Is the Van Helsing Double Pack worth it for that £14 price? Or will it maybe go cheaper in the upcoming bigger sale?
    I played the first one when it was given away for free and have wanted the second one since. The second one normally sells for $15 (USD) alone, so this bundle actually is more expensive for me than just buying the second one by itself.

    So, I would say, if you didn't get the first one when free this is probably as good as it gets. If you just need the second one buy it solo. Just my opinion of course.

    Might finally take the plunge on Shadow Warrior. Anyone have any opinions on it?
    This is a signature. It has words in it.

    Count me as one of those that has been looking for some kind of announcement about a holiday sale/countdown sale/whatever they are calling it this year (assuming they are having one). It's usually a lot of the same stuff as the Black Friday sales but I was still interested in seeing what they might put out there.

    They usually have the Countdown sales as well. Don’t know if they were mentioned at all yet, but wouldn’t they start on the 20th? Could be why these sales are fairly lacking
    It always used to start on a Tuesday, up until last year:
    Xbox One Countdown to 2017 Weekly Deals: Week One - December 22nd-28th
    XBL Countdown to 2016 Sale - December 22nd
    XBL Sale Roundup: December 16th, 2014
    XBL Sale Roundup: December 17th, 2013
    Thank you for this! I've been wondering lately why we haven't had a countdown sale.

    I'll probably grab Valley. Been waiting for it to get a decent discount.

    It's a bit of an old school FPS with a few modern twists. It's probably not going to change your life or anything, but I enjoyed it.

    I swear, it's like they're discounting Anima every single time my gold runs out.

    I knew Van Helsing 3 wouldn't be on sale but I checked anyway.

    Ahhh you are right, found the post : https://forums.swordcoast.com/index.php?/topic/11825-last-ch...

    Shame they didn't fix the loading times, I would have loved it a lot more if I didn't spend more time in loading screens than I did playing the fucking game. If you can stand all the loading though, the ratio is ridiculous.

    Anima is a pretty decent ARPG. It looks and feels a lot like Nier (and also has an annoying talking book!) but I found the combat to be much more difficult. Nothing like a Dark Souls game though.

    Zenith had it's unobtainable fixed so it can be completed. Not a very good game. Nothing incredibly offensive about it I guess, but nothing about it is incredibly good either...or even kind of good. If someone told you to make a game that encapsulates the word "meh", Zenith is what you would make.

    Well these are the DWG, not the upcoming Christmas sale. Don't worry, that sale will come soon

    And this is the cheapest it's been. Ouch.
