I don't have the spend $40 get 4000 points offer on my Xbox. Can someone tell me when it expires?

I was looking at Borderlands before and though I had bought, then I saw posts saying it free to play for the weekend. I knew I had not bought it and was waiting for it to go lower lol.

Looks like they have got rid of Farcry Gold (still available in Australia, probably will go soon too) so people will buy the gold edition that is bundled with New Dawn Deluxe.

Bioshock Collection, worth getting if you have the Xbox 360 versions?

People think I’m stupid for commenting on Reddit that I’m surprised it didn’t mention the games. I guess everyone there reads books only.

Besides what Dustin said, I think beginning any show or movie or whatever with the words "Based on the popular video game" just has the stigma of it'll be hot, wet, ass filled garbage. I Think Detective Pikachu got around it by saying something on the lines of "Based on the Global Phenomenon".

I imagine when the summer sale ends since it's only valid for games features in the sale. I bought the $40 Dauntless pack and it did not count.

Is this a punch card where you have to click something before you start getting purchases to count towards this?

I’m pretty sure that punch card is only for the US.

I don't think so, when I clicked the tile and there was no button like in the weekly items. Rephrase, you click the tile, then the tile that shows your spending, and clicking that takes you to the sale page with the eligible titles.

No button press required. It also tracks your purchase $$, which is handy (I think i’m at 39/40, of course).

Books are way too detailed and has lot more context. Same deal as LoTR where the total movie time amounts to about 60% of the book, if that.

There's a lot of fluff that gets cut, generally; but even so, Witcher books have lot of action beyond what made it into the games. I'm glad the series doesn't have the expectations set by the game.

They are pretty clearly hoping to capitalize on the Game of Thrones fandom, so people will probably pay more attention to the new hotness if it's also adapted from a popular fantasy book series. Most good fantasy shows and films (LotR, Harry Potter, GoT, etc) were books first. Films and shows based on games also have a terrible track record, so it makes sense to emphasize the books.

That said The Witcher had some of the best writing for a video game, man a whole one off episode for "The Bloody Baron" would have been great.

Funny the comments about PvZ3 and GW3. Alpha test for new shooter coming up. (I'm not accepting the invite to participate, therefore I'm not accepting any NDA)
