The XBOX One

The sale isn’t really officially live yet. There’s still stuff gradually being added for now. So the unofficial trackers on Reddit and such are your best bet.

Thanks, guys.

Let’s see, brief perusal of the list:

A Hat In Time: $18- this was the one Tom was all hot about, right?
Bastion: $3.75- I was thinking I’d like to replay it, I’m vaguely annoyed they didn’t just make it back compat, but this is cheap.
ME: Shadow of War: $12.50- I liked the first well enough when I got it on sale (or was it free via GwG?). Is this a worthy update?
No Man’s Sky $40- for my brother to play online with me, it was his birthday yesterday.
That Prey/Dishonored bundle does look good.

First thing I looked for: Torment: Tides of Numenera, but it isn’t there. Bummer. Last year at Black Friday it was on sale for 12.50. Should have grabbed it then, and I hoped it’d be back, especially with recent news.

Frankly, I’ll probably not get anything, just take that 6 months of Game Pass for $30 they’re advertising to me. Mutant: Year Zero will be in there in a couple weeks, and Warframe: Fortuna will be along shortly, too.

Yes. Plus it has the added bonus of transforming Shelob into sexy cosplay material.


#10291

What? I’m not looking that up on Google. I just can’t even.


#10292

Your loss. No big deal though, you’ll get plenty of cozy Shelob moments in the game.


#10293

I think I got Torment from Best Buy about 2 weeks ago on clearance, was $10.


#10294

Yep me too! It came with a map.


#10295

Ooooooh! Nice find! I wants it!


#10296

To be fair, when the X1 port came out, they give it away free to all 360 Bastion owners. That’s how I got my copy. But obviously, that was a temporary thing, for about a week or a month.


#10297

Hot damn! Amazon Prime music finally made it to Xbox One… but the damn app won’t install and keeps erroring out.

Hope it gets working soon, I’ve got a great collection there.


#10298

Crap. I just went and looked and it’s $20. Then I had a thought to check Amazon and there was a new copy for $13. It’ll be here Monday, and I get a credit for $5 for Amazon Whole Foods Prime Now something something that I’ll probably never use. I’m fine with that.

Just had an interest in the setting again recently, and was hoping the game would be on sale for the holidays. Hey, now I own 2 Xbone games on disk!


#10299

Whoa, just noticed that the Return to Asylum bundle with Arkham Asylum and Arkham City is going for $5 in this sale! Is this a good remaster? That’s almost giving it away!


#10300

Digital Foundry said it was the worst Xbox One X enhanced game, since it enhanced diddly squat.

But yeah, I’m tempted too. I was tempted at $10 on the last few sales, but at $5, it’s almost like “well, I’ll have it in my library in case I ever get the temptation to replay these games”.


#10301

I’ve been holding out hope that the 360 versions would go back compat like they did with Origins, but maybe they’re holding out so as not to cannibalize sales of this remaster. But yeah, at $5 I’m pretty much ready to say screw it, why not.


#10302

It plays decently enough, but I think it looked better on pc.


#10303

Looks like we’ve got our December Games with Gold reveal and, look at that! Our very first original Xbox game!


#10304

The original Mercenaries? Interesting. I don’t remember much buzz about that one, only its sequel.

I’m glad I’m getting Dragon Age II so I don’t have to put in the disc. Of course, this means the $10 I spent on the disc last year was wasted money. Still, the convenience of not needing a disc is very cool.

I already own and played through Never Alone. Great native Alaskan folk tale told as a game. Never heard of Qube 2.


#10305

I just noticed Agents of Mayhem showed up on Game Pass. I’ve occasionally thought about grabbing it on sale given its fans around here. Nice to be able to check it out.


#10306

It’s an enjoyable puzzle game. Think Portal-like environmental puzzles, but using coloured cubes with different effects.

Without having played the first one (which was, I believe, a student project and rougher around the edges), you lose some of the story background. But the game stands on its own merit and I would very likely have enjoyed it as much without knowing the original story.

All in all, I think it’s a very nice addition to GwG.

What do you mean first original Xbox game? Xbox came out in 2001, this game came out a few years later, I think. Or do you mean first original Xbox BC game? Because they’ve released over 25 Xbox games on BC so far…
