XB has hundreds of games available but we get the same sales every 4 weeks or so. It's tiring.


I was thinking the same thing. I have about 10 games in my wishlist that have NEVER gone on sale. Some of them for years now.

I feel ya. I have $25 in xbox money expiring 4/14 and I was thinking  of getting digital MK11, but I know it'll be on sale 3 more times before my enddate

You have to blame it on the publishers, not MS. EA, UBI, WB and the likes are always more willing with sales. Others, not so much.

It's typically the more obscure stuff. It took ages before they finally had a sale on the Arkanoid remake, and that's a backward compatible game! Conversely, they constantly put games on sale that you can't actually play on the Xbox One. Way to go, bungholes.

I grabbed the Gravel season pass before it went off sale since I own the disc already.  Fun, but the digital base game never goes on sale.

 

And I noticed that Kerbal Space Program: Enhanced Edition just went on sale and that one of the DLCs is also on sale for the next few hours from last week's sale.  Is Kerbal worth buying?  It seems rather complicated and might play better on PC than on Xbox One.

A couple details about the Doom 64 port from the devs.

 

https://www.usgamer....and-new-chapter

 

  • A brand new chapter can be unlocked, that sounds like it connects the old games to the modern story.
  • Keyboard and mouse support for Xbox
  • Minor new features: lighting options, blood color, control stuff.

This looks REALLY nice.

 

 

I had been stashing my MS Rewards points for... something. Not really looking at the Series X on day 1 or anything like that, but I had a good amount built up..... so I cashed in for $100 Xbox money and ordered the sweatshirt. I love Ori and can’t wait to play it tomorrow and/or Wednesday, and I also think the shirt is awesome, great colors especially. Now I have to hope for some decent sales to use the remaining $30 before it expires.

Cheapest the Arkham Knight season pass has ever been by itself for those of you who own the disc.

Lego DC Super Villains deluxe edition is $22.49 which is cheaper than buying the base game by itself...

I regret not getting the dangerous collection when it was 20 dollars other than that I haven’t seen a sale on anything I want in a long while.

I don't know if I have any that have never been on sale but I have a few that haven't been on sale since july 2018 or later. I may have seen them when they were on sale but since they were going in the backlog I didn't bite at less than 50% off.

 

Trials Fusion Awesome level Max DLC, Flinthook and The Fall Part 2 haven't been on sale in 20+ months. I'd search more but storeparser's searching algorithm is awful.

Right on. Glad you're getting a sweatshirt based off a game franchise you adore. I've had an eye on some Mass Effect gear, but cant get that via MS Rewards for essentially free. Hope the sequel is as good as the original.

Finally got around to my digital copy of South Park: Stick of Truth. Man, this game is still a blast the 2nd time around on my X1X. And dang, not much on sale that piques my interest. Maybe next week? Hopefully a good deal along the lines of the Doom trilogy from a few weeks ago. Time will tell *shrug*

Looks like Ducktales got relisted so that is good news if people did not get it yet.

I hear you about 360 sale wish Metal Gear Peace Walker would be on sale. On another note I’m getting Modern Warfare free today, anyone else?

Man, that looks really cool, my Wife would love it, but we live in FL, so not too many useful months out of a year for hoodies.

Still enjoying Doom II a lot in preparation for Doom Eternal. Makes me wish the remaster of Doom 64 would come out a week or two early to get some time with it first since it's the only one of the old games I haven't played at length.

Will of Wisps getting awesome reviews. 91 average on Metacritic so far. Can’t wait to play!

Well, that's three more Lego games on the ol' backlog. I was debating whether to wait for DC Super Villains to go lower, but what the heck.

I only played about an hour of the first Ori. I'm looking forward to diving head-first into the new one after work today. No fuck's given.

I played the original Ori, the one that had missable achievements and of course I missed some because I wasn't using a guide.  I think I may dive into the definitive edition before playing Will of the Wisps.

Twitch prime members can get a unicorn skin for the doom slayer when eternal releases on the 20th. Pretty amusing compared to the dark tone of the game. https://www.gamespot...a/1100-6474596/
