Is tonight when the Spring Sale starts?

They cancelled the Spring Sale and took a skinny dump on your scalp.

Buy it. $24 at BBY after GCU. Worth it all! I grinned out Black Ops 3 until I hit Master Prestige and got Dark Matter and Hero armor. Bought this game after being burnt out on cod and I'm never goin back. Such a great change in pace for FPSes

Yeah I had it in my hand the other day but then saw Borderlands The Handsome Collection for the same. Now I missed it but I'm sure it will come back around for the same price.

Last year's remaster is what this will be. They are remasters in that there are no jaggies, but still very polygonal.

Spoiler

To me a remaster should consist of new textures and better character models. This just doesn't interest me. If it leads to making another remaster then sure but this isn't getting my money as it should of been redone then just updating the character models a little. edit - alright this comparison video shows me the differences then what I assumed from screenshots, but still not interested as I don't see much difference.

I downloaded SC2 but I can't play it :(

I keep getting the "this game is not available yet" message.

Night Dive Studios is planning on bringing Turok and Turok 2 remasters to XB1. The first one hit Steam late last year.

This is some of the best news I've heard in a while gaming wise, one of my favorite franchises played a lot of these growing up, would love to see Rage Wars happen at some point.

At least the game is better now than on launch. They toned the QTEs down and let you turn them off, along with letting you adjust the FOV to not be shit.

Well, I caved in and bought Turok on GOG. What a crap and sad game. I hate it so much. It looks and plays horribly. I prefer to play Duke3D/Quake 1 on a modern source port than this crap. Dont know what the fuss is about, maybe and only nostalgia?

RE6 is honestly a lot of fun with a coop partner, and it is also going to include the No Mercy mode that was PC exclusive so that's a nice little bonus on top of all the DLC

It's amazing how good Capcom's PR has been for this remastered RE6 by saying nothing, so the people that have forgotten why they hated it the first time around will pay money to refresh their memories.

Seen someone pay $14.99 at the store the other day for RE6 on xbox 360. Even told him it was on sale on xbl, "I don't have gold". 1 month is only a dollar right now, "look a butterfly". Then I told him about this website, oops.

It's weird wording. You can set it to America or Worldwide, but Worldwide actually means "every country that's not America". Try setting to America and see if you have any luck.

I was wondering the same thing.
All last week was nothing but a bunch of stuff that I could get cheaper on disc at retail.

Unless of course, you were looking for DLC or Season Passes.
Then if you want a discount on those you would have to buy it with the main game again, even if you already had the main game and just wanted the DLC/Season Pass.
Once again the video game battle cry "BUY IT AGAIN! ..... and at a higher price"

Looks like NHL 16 has been added to the vault a little early.

Excellent news, I would imagine this is a much better hockey game than Rory is a golf game... then again this may also be a better golf game than Rory is

If one XBLA game that I don't have goes on sale tonight, I will thank my lucky stars...

"

I encourage each and every one of you who plans to play both the Xbox One and Windows 10 version of Killer Instinct to read this post very carefully and take note of it! When Season 3 launches tomorrow, you must first sign into the game on your Xbox One console before you sign in to Windows 10. If you do not do this, your data will not carry over to the Windows 10 version and you’ll be starting the game with new save data, meaning all of your hard earned progress will not be available on the Windows 10 version of the game. Yes, you’ll basically be starting from scratch. Now, in the off chance that you no longer have an Xbox One, you can log in to your account on any other Xbox One console for the same results.

Again everyone, please keep all of this in mind for tomorrow’s launch. I know many of you plan to move over exclusively to Windows 10 or intend on utilizing both, so please tread carefully so you don’t have start all over again. Season 3 will be available sometime tomorrow on March 29th."

You have to have stinky-ass Windows 10 to run this game? Ugh. My gaming desktop is on Win 7, and I have no intention of "up"grading it any time soon.

This sale might not have been amazing but I still managed to pick some stuff up. ESO Tamriel Unlimited and its Orsimium and Thieves Guild dlcs, Sleeping Dogs Definitive, and AC Unity from CDKeys. Now I really can't be spending on anything else for a while.

You just paid $20 for Turok on gog? Fond memories can make you do crazy things

And there's too much coming out in the near future with both consoles to justify spending much during this sale. The only things I ended up grabbing were Binding of Isaac (before the price jump) and the Resident Evil Origins bundle

Same for me concerning ESO and AC ! Discovered btw that the crowns on the BR store were really cheap ... 

No deals early today because of Easter ?

Memory play nasty jokes. Turok is disgusting, no port is going to change that.
