It lists that it has to be one of the new ones they added with Operation 3. Did you pop one of the original by chance? I got a few retroactively when I booted it up on Wednesday and counted on the punch card.

It was a campaign achievement.

They didn't add any new campaign achievements. Here are the update notes with all the achievements they added:

The easiest achievement to unlock for Operation 3 in Gears 5 is "In The Name Of..."

 

All you need to do is go to the store (menu button) and craft the Cole, Clayton and Queen Myrrah totems for 100 scraps each.

 

You don't have to unlock the characters as some guides suggest, just craft 3 new character totems.

Doubt it and I haven’t even looked. Too much in my backlog, and I’m juggling Witcher 3 and Animal Crossing along with a few others.

I'm tempted by savage planet at 40% off and stranger things at 75% but they'd end in the backlog. Looked at prices of some 360 BC games I've had my eye on but nothing stood out of the few games I looked at.

My squad and I all bought OnRush for $5s. Game is super fun and should be an amazing Friday night quarantined game. Really couldn't recommend it more. Overwatch but cars. Super fun

I'm thinking of the following: 

 

Ori and the Blind Forest DE for $4.99 is the lowest it's been hasn't it? I know it's on GP but for that price I might buy.

MegaMan Legacy Collection for $5.99

 

I want the Capcom Beat 'em Up but not for $9.99

I busted through the last few achievements with an online co-op partner that game is a mofo late, the AI hate you. I've actually never got what the game was going for. That game Blur was better but wrong time wrong place.

Nah. These prices are weak. A lot of these games have been cheaper before. Plus I'm addicted to Animal Crossing right now.

Winners were picked. # 4 and #25 from random.com winners got pms with codes.

Jsivley & hekik congrats.

Thank you! Saw the first but hadn’t seen this one. Now I get to :)

Edit: my code didn’t work :( it’s the thought that counts. Still appreciate the contest

I might bite the bullet and grab Dying Light. I've been waiting for a deeper sale but the Enhanced Edition never seems to drop below $20.

 

You can thank me when it comes to Game Pass.

No. Same prices they have had in the past, they didnt bring anything new to the table

Ya know, it's fine that you didn't see anything you wanted but that doesn't mean you should discourage other people from even looking.

Dark Souls Remastered: $16.99 w/o gold, lowest previous price $19.99 w/ gold
Wolfenstein II, Deluxe, 2 Pack, Doom Bundle, Youngblood: All match lowest gold price without gold
Warhammer Inquisitor Martyr: $7.99 w/o gold, lowest $17.99 w/
" Imperium Ed: $10.99 w/o, lowest $23.99 w/
Jedi Fallen Order: $35.99 w/o, lowest $53.99 w/
Sniper Elite 4 Deluxe: $17.99 w/o, lowest $22.49 w/
PUBG: $9.99 w/o, lowest $10.99 w/
Jump Force: $29.69 w/o, lowest $35.99 w/
Stellaris: $13.19 w/o, lowest $19.99 w/
Fade to Silence: $8.99 w/o, lowest $16.49 w/o
Stranger Things 3: $4.99 w/o, lowest $9.99 w/
Madden 20: $19.79 w/o, lowest $23.99 w/o
Slay the Spire: $18.74 w/o, lowest $19.99 w/
RAD: $9.99 w/o, lowest $11.99 w/o
Man of Medan: $14.99 w/o, lowest $17.99 w/o
WRC8: $19.99 w/o, lowest $24.99 w/
Ghostbusters: $11.99 w/o, lowest $17.99 w/o
Code Vein deluxe, just in time for last dlc: $47.99 w/o, lowest $55.99 w/o


Jedi FO is on sale for the first time ever at 40% off, but I guess that doesn't count as "bringing something new to the table"

I'm tired of looking up examples, but suffice to say this is a good sale and anyone interested will probably find games they want at their lowest ever prices digitally. This sale is especially good for people without gold, which is pretty nice considering. Price history courtesy of xbdeals.net.

Nope

The prices are pretty much consistent with every other sale.  The difference is that many people are stuck at home and might finally take notice since they don't have much else to do.

Don't know if it has been mentioned, there is a punch card for the sale in the Microsoft rewards app on the Xbox where you have to spend $65 and get 4000 points. This is for Australia so the American spend amount will be less.

Eyeballing:
Rad
Ghostbusters
Man of Medan
Stranger Things 3

I mean, I'll never play any of them, so I don't know why I'm considering them ... but here we are.

Ghostbusters and Strange Things 3 are worth looking at. Errmhgad imagine if they mad a video bmx game with Nicole Kidman's debut for RAD

To me this sale seems awesome, but it is my first one since I picked up the XB1. I did a quick browse through last night and I see a bunch of deals that are on my wish list. Could I get some recommendations from the group? I want to be conservative with the backlog but still pick up a few titles for my collection.

 

Witcher 2 $3 - that is a must for me

FC3 Blood Dragon $4.50 - yes please

Ori &TBF $5 - done

 

Subnautica vs Abzu - any recommendations?

 

Can I get some top 3 recommendations from the group?

 

TOP THREE CATEGORY SUGGESTIONS:

 

-Best deals/games of this sale

 

-Couch Co-Ops

 

-Adventure/Action/Exploration

 

-RPGs

 

-Action/Shooters

 

-BC (OG/360)

 

-Wild Cards/Etc.

 

-Pass on/seen (or will see) better deals

I don't know much but you can't really compare Subnautca and Abzu
