Called it, or jinxed it?
Can it be both?

Giana Sisters is a visually beautiful platformer for those who haven't played it. Worth it at 50% off, but be warned the game is EXTREMELY difficult and you'll most likely never get all the achievements.
That said, if I didn't have it on the 360, I'd bite for sure. Since I do however, I'm probably going to lean on passing since Rayman is currently fulfilling my X1 platformer fix.

Always enjoy that new thread smell before it becomes tainted by the monthly Rockstar sale.
Hoping if an Xbox One retail game goes on sale, the season pass is on sale as well separately. Too many times have we seen the Sunset Overdrive bundle on sale, but never the season pass separately.
Otherwise, realistically I'd like to see KickBeat or Pier Solar hit the 50% mark. Some other games as well, but they're a bit too new just coming out last month.

How long you think we gotta wait till Resident Evil Remastered goes on sale
There's no doubt it will being Capcom and how often we've seen previous Resident Evils go on sale.
If I made a prediction, I'll guess April 27th and it'll be 25% off.

When I saw the Pack was on sale, at first I was like "Man, should have waited" but then I realized how much fun I had had with it already and didn't care that I paid full price, it was worth it
If you can get 3 or more people, I almost think Drawful is the best game
While I haven't played with friends, I've played while watching other streamers and Fibbage and Drawful are the best two hands down. Fibbage does have a tendency to drift towards penises though.
As for the other games, it varies. Lie Swatter is interesting in the sense where you get asked different questions and have to determine whether it's true or a lie. While meh otherwise, I did learn a lot about the Little Rascals cast and how they all did or did not die.
Wordspud is my least favorite of the bunch. You start off with a word and take turns adding on to that word and the other players vote on it. First word could be "Out". You add "House". Other players vote if it's a good or bad match. If it's good, it's accepted and play moves on to the next person. If it's rejected, the next player starts with a new word.
Only one I don't have much experience with is You Don't Know Jack. While I'm sure it's a good game with a group of friends locally, it makes for a terrible game on stream since the lag gives you practically zero time to answer the question.
That said, it's worth the price just for Fibbage and Drawful alone.

A couple games on that list I have yet to play (Strider still sits on my hard drive unplayed), but a good read overall.
If I had one nitpick, it'd be the inclusion of Rayman Legends. Don't get me wrong, I loved the game and it was one of my top games of 2013, but that's the thing. With it being out in 2013 (granted, not on the X1), the inclusion on a 2014 list seems off since they didn't really pack anything extra iirc.

Too many games in my backlog to list, but have been focusing on the Xbox One lately. Have had some indie games sitting here and going to try knocking them out this week. Figure most of them are short so shouldn't have much trouble finishing and going for the full 1k.
Stick It To The Man
Costume Quest 2
Legend of Korra 2
Already started Stick It to The Man Saturday night and am enjoying that one. Did the first half of the game, and while it's basically a glorified point and click with platforming, the humor makes the $5 I spent worth it.
Aside from the indie games, working on NFS Rivals right now as well and want to finish that up this week if possible. Cop career is done, just need to hit rank 60 for the racer and bank 500k points in one go. Already at 20, so at this point I should be able to hit 40 quickly. The last 20 are hard to say though.

Guys, don't buy Tetris Ultimate. Not yet, anyway. Again, Ubisoft and their launches. I bought it today and played like 3 hours. The game crashed on me 6 times. Achievement tracking is confusing and unprecise. Matchmaking is pretty horrible. I had an opponent in Battle mode who died several minutes before on Level 4 (I went all the way to Level 17) but the game still gave him the win. Even the intro Ubisoft video has a glitch. What the hell Ubisoft, patch this thing. The game is great otherwise but jeez will they ever release a not broken as hell game again? /rant
I haven't really looked up achievement progress (partially as some of the achievements are grindy and will take a while anyways). However, never had the game crash for me and things seemed to be working smoothly enough.
I have had trouble with the matchmaking, but I don't know how much of that is bad netcode as opposed to the game being brand new and not enough people having bought the game yet.
On a side note, I thought that might have been you I saw in the one battle game when you disconnected.

I'm gonna have some Onigiri news for you in a day or two. You will find it interesting. That's in addition to a full preview.
I'm smelling a US release.
I actually don't mind, if not else since it can have funny results. I recently had 77777 as gamerscore, even took a photo of it. I am currently having one ending with 8 I think, damn Onigiri with its 1G cheevos. If a Threes achievement gets me back on track, so be it.
I'll admit to being tempted by Onigiri, somewhat after seeing potential provocative achievement backgrounds, but I'll also admit that any desire to attempt to play the game may have been killed off seeing the four different odd numbered achievements. It's one of the few reasons I haven't attempted to 100% Trouble Witches Neo.
And for Ryuukishi:

Due to some great deals, most found through this lovely site/a few on the Xbox store too, I've accumulated:
I've got Dragon Age: Inquisition on pre-order and will grab Master Chief Collection down the road when it's gonna be on inevitable sale. Game on!
