Dear Esther is a controversial "game", but for that price you might as well see for yourself. Relatively easy completion too.

Every sale I'm tempted by Elite, but I'm already sitting on so many massive F2Ps that I haven't dedicated proper time to, it seems silly to spend money on something so time consuming.

Anyone else finding these sales increasingly difficult to find on the XB1 itself? I have to manually search for every game as they do not show in the Games with Gold deals section any more :(

I completed dear Esther during the 12 days of Christmas event. Easy game - I think the narrator is a bit distracting and doesn't talk much sense but otherwise it's quite good and only a couple of hours long. Hue is ridiculously cheap at that price - worth a purchase if you don't already have it.

Shred It! must be that lettuce simulator everyone has been raving about.
Every game with DLC that you pay for is a paid update.

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.
smile
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.
Ok, thanks for the info

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.
Thanks. Bought it as I don’t have either.

An irrational part of myself wants to get Elite and play it to completion

Yeah I've heard it's rather a cold slaw, but it's probably worth the cabbage!

Thanks for the heads up :) it's also mentioned that the online servers up are indefinitely, so might be a good idea to knock out the co-op achievement before it's too late.

So seen as everyone appears to be sharing free PC games going around right now, OXENFREE is currently available for free on GOG.com smile

Picked up Sword Coast, Valley and Zenith. I usually get disappointed by year end/Christmas sales (because it tends to cater to the ultra popular stuff) so this will probably be it for me.

Something tells me with the prcing of the Transformers games this low, it's possible they could get De-Listed. Transformers FOC on the XBox One is also Digital only. Could be wrong.

Dear Esther is finally at a price that I feel is actually justified, so I'll go ahead and grab that to add to my backlog.

Damn, saw Injustice 2 bundles and hoped the season pass might be on sale as well.
Not having it in the bundle is an Injustice.

Picked up Hue and Valley, they don't look too bad compared to other games on this list.

Shred it!, Zenith, The Coma Recut, Bedlam, Dear Esther and the Legend of Korra are easy completion for anyone interrested.
