I think I did pretty good on my purchases.

 

I had credit that I got at kroger for 16% off  ($50 cards for $42 cash deals)

Plus EB was giving 15% cashback yesterday. Almost missed it.  Did anyone post that?

 

So I got $129 (including tax) worth of stuff for $94 (true out of pocket) out of pocket plus I got about 10000 microsoft points  so when the credit goes on sale again I should be able to turn the points that back into $13 in credit so my total true total will be $81

 

The best deal I got was The Walking Dead Final Season + Walking Dead Complete for $15 (Total Out of Pocket) with 1599 Microsoft points

and Destiny 2 - Game + Expansion Pass Bundle 14.87 (Total Out of Pocket) with 1584 Microsoft Points

 

I also sold my best buy Destiny 2 today for $11.75. So including that I really came out a winner on the Destiny 2 digital around $10 total.

Kinda bummed that forza 7 or injustice 2 legendary isn't any cheaper for the "ultimate sale" I will continue to wait.
Rise of the tomb raider is looking pretty good.

I'm gonna let echo's give away run until Tuesday. So good luck to anyone who enters.

But I did want to take a minute to thank everyone who makes this thread a community. It takes a lot of different view points to make this a thing, including the highs (mrcluth, Bloomy, etc) , and the lows (praxus :P) and I personally love reading all of the posts (except bloomys post about lego Voltron, I AIN'T GOT NO MONEY TOY TEASE! ). Let's keep gaming and be positive :)

Considering both.

You are not wrong, sir. If it weren’t for the incidental costs this would be my favorite site on the Internet. Very supportive group. Almost...enabling.

Fallout 3, Darkness II, Skate 3 and Mighty No. 9?

Do not buy Mighty #9. At any price. I was a fool, but let my sacrifice not be in vain. It’s nigh unplayable and you’d be better served converting your money into change and swallowing it whole.

Well mighty no. 9 seemed to have derailed off the hype train that couldn't deliver. I still bought it shortly after it was released. Try mega man, blaster master zero or mighty gunvolt burst instead . That would be my suggestion unless you really want to play that specific game.

My personal preference is fallout 4 over fallout 3.

Yw, let me know what you think of it once you try it. I think the deluxe is also available for 9 as well?

Not sure how much skate 3 is, but it’s a game you might find for $5 or less at a pawn shop. I see it often, looks great on my Xbox one x. If you like skating you should own it.

Is the first State of Decay worth getting now that the second one is out? I know I can get it 'free' in the Ultimate Edition of the second game, but it would be cheaper to buy the base second game and part one separately. I know I could do the Game Pass to try it out, but I'd rather put the money I'd spend on Game Pass towards the actual purchase, plus with school starting in a few weeks game time is going to tank.

Mighty No. 9 is not a bad game. If you enjoy 2D platformers it's definitely worth $5.

Fallout 3 is a good game and, I'm not sure on the sale price, $15 and under for the base game and all DLC is a very good deal. The graphics may not be wicked good compared to fallout 4, but it holds up well. I like the karma system that they basically took out of 4, being good/bad has a noticeable affect on interactions with NPCs.

Destiny 2 + expansion pass for $20 has me interested. Is the campaign fun enough to play solo? I heard the end game has its problems, but 20 bucks for a good, meaty campaign sounds worth it. If it helps shed any light, I liked the solo campaign for The Division, and its end game has me coming back to it even if I only play solo. I have never played the first Destiny.

MN9 is bad. I wanted to love it and gave it a very honest chance. I still replay all 6 NES Mega Man games at least once a year, and Shovel Knight is one of my favorite releases of the last few years.

MN9 is lacking so much polish, though. The opening level is fun, and then the boss levels end up being so poorly executed.

I paid $5-10 for a clearance copy at Target and wanted my money back.

Thank you both for asking about it and providing the link on Hitman summer series.

I would have missed it.

Now getting time to play it is a whole different story.

Fallout 3 is fun for exploring and the dlc is nice. Main story is okay but the ending is final unless you buy dlc. Aiming and shooting is clunky so you might be relying on vats a lot.

Darkness 2 is incredibly short (I beat it in 3 hours on normal) but it’s pretty fun to play. Story is a bit of a trip, but it does assume you played the first game.

Skate 3 is a fine skateboarding game with a ton of freedom. It’s not like Tony Hawk gameplaywise as you use the right stick to do tricks. Also has a fun mode dedicated to shattering as many bones as possible.

Mighty No. 9 is the one I’d least recommend. Was not a fan of the level design and I feel for a Mega Man game that’s the most important.

Funny I just started playing a disc copy of this last night even though I've had it since last year. I only got though the opening stage and it seemed better than I would have guessed based on most of the opinions I've seen. Having not tried a boss level yet, I'm apparently about to be disappointed.
