So I would have to use my $400 credit before they use up the $5 promotional credit?

Does anyone know why the prices on the website wouldn't reflect the lowest price? I'm logged in and when I go to the sale page it will show (for example) Burnout Paradise Remastered for 23.99 but when I click the link in the OP it's $20. I'm on vacation and can't browse on the console so it's really irritating me. All the $19.80 games are showing $24 too among others.

Well, if you're in another country than the US right now, you're probably browsing that country's website. When you click on the OP its a direct link to the US website.

Sadly, just Pittsburgh lol. It's no biggie, just odd that no Gold discounts are showing after I'm logging in.

Definitely getting Ori and the Blind Forest. Thinking about either Just Cause 3 XL or Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Digital Deluxe. Any other games I should maybe take a look at?

Happened to me too while in Dominican Republic. I was able to sign in using the Xbox app and everything worked from there. Might be worth a try.

Mini-review of The Count Lucanor - on sale for $4.50 from $15:

 

The visuals remind me of an NES-style Silent Hill or Evil Within.  Lots of grotesque imagery and gore.  The music is also very charming.  Watch the trailer for examples of the graphic style and music.  You should know if you're interested pretty instantly.  I knew I was.

 

TATS:

Spoiler

 

I just finished it last night, and enjoyed it.  But couple things that may be deal-breakers for some:

There is no combat at all.  You can only avoid or hide from enemies.

Your character moves maddeningly slow, and there is no run button.

Game took about 3 hours to beat, maybe.  I'll go back to mop up a few achievements, but outside of that, there is little (if any) replay value.

The game boasts five endings and "player choice matters," but I found that kinda misleading.  All five endings can be earned/worked out in the last 5 minutes of the game.  So you can just reload your last save and earn a different one each time.  All five endings were earned in less than 30 minutes.

Edit:  Wanna make special mention of the saving mechanic.  There is no auto-save.  Saving costs 1 coin, and you find coins throughout the game.  You also use the same coins to buy items from the merchant.  So if you're the type of person that saves every 5 minutes, you're going to have a problem.  Personally, I saved about 6 times, and bought all items from the merchant, and had like 8 coins left over.  So there is "plenty" of coins.  But I know this system can stress some players out.

 

For 15 dollars, I'd have been disappointed.  For $4.50, I'm happy.  It was an interesting little game that I am glad I got to experience.

^^ Thanks for that review. Think I will pick it up.

It's not on sale but has anyone played the DLC for super luckys tale and can say if it's worth it? I'm playing the base game on gamepass and I'm enjoying it even though it's a bit harder than I was expecting, doesn't help that I'm trying to rush through it.

I'm confused by the achievements, all of the "collect every clover in world x" achievements are regular but all the "defeat boss of world x" achievements are rare. As far as I can tell you have to beat the boss to get to the next world to collect the clovers that have a common achievement.

Any store transactions should automatically prioritize whichever of your credit expires first. If that's your $400, then yeah

It kills me because bought Mortal Kombat X when it was on sale a while back. But I haven't gotten any of the DLC. Now I'm just tempted to buy XL for $10 because that's probably cheaper than all the DLC

Just FYI I got 1000/1000 on Super Destronaut DX within 20 mins of getting it. Not a huge amount of replayability in my opinion.

 

That isn't what I'd call a good value proposition.  Thanks for the heads up.

Thats how it used to be, I have a feeling its not the same anymore. I have one more experiment to make to confirm, I'll let you guys know when I buy Super Destronaut DX.

Gamepass is amazing, especially because there have consistently been deals on it.  No, I haven't played any of the games for more than 10 minutes, but if I ever decide to, it will be amazing :)

 

Gonna download and play Abzu today.  Been wanting to try it out for a long time now

Witcher 3 is top 5 of this generation of games.

No footage of the monsters actually fighting or interacting with each other, which is concerning.

Was considering buying the Wolfenstein 2/ Doom bundle so I got smart about it and started playing the first Wolfenstein, which I’ve had forever, to see if I thought it would be worth it.
Not my thing. Needlessly difficult and nothing to great about the storyline imo. Sure you can turn it on baby mode or whatever but it seems to take away from the experience to me. Think I’ll pass.

I have not finished the first Wolfenstein but what I have played of the second one seemed cooler IMO. Have you played the Wolf 2 demo?

I really need to finish the first game but have always been tempted to just dive into the second. Not due how much I would be missing story wise.

I'm getting old to the point of reversal....playing baby mode in most games is a given before gazing at my backlog and in a muted sigh whispering, "one day....one day"

Not sure how far you are since you know the storyline already, but it's kind of chaotic and meandering in the prologue with the beach and robot dogs till you make the "choice". Seemed more streamlined after that and one of the better games of 2016 imho.

It actually has a continuing story so I wouldn't recommend it from that aspect
