This week is a good week for fans of the Mass Effect series. Not so great for everyone else though.
Over on Xbox One there really isn't much to recommend other than Titanfall Deluxe Edition at 75% off. The game is still pretty fun and it's cloud based online play is frankly buttery smooth. Personally if you're interested in this title, I would still wholeheartedly recommend considering investing in an EA access subscription in it's place. Seeing how it is one of the titles included in "The Vault".
Over on Xbox 360 Titanfall is also on sale. The main attraction however is the fact that all premium DLC for Mass Effect 2/3 is currently 50% off. If you're a fan of the series and are missing any of these paid expansions, now might be the time to buy.
As per the usual, all of this week's deals for both...
In the week following E3, we have some more fairly unremarkable discounts across both platforms.
Once again the main recommendation this week is more free content with another Battlefield 4 DLC pack; Battlefield 4 Second Assault. This one is available on both platforms but I'd like to assume that most of you by now would be interested in the Xbox One version of this content.
On Xbox 360 this week I'd recommend the Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection at 50% Off. Providing all the DLC content for a recent games with gold title at one low price. If I remember correctly their's some pretty fun single player content that adds a stealthy segment to the campaign. This...
One could call this the Deals with Gold E3 edition, but Xbox One this week features many of the usual suspects.
Following the announcement of Forza Horizon 3, this week primarily proves to be a sale across Xbox One iterations of the series. My recommendation sits with Limbo this week, which is 100% off. As it's a very atmospheric platformer focusing very much on trial and error. Also who doesn't like free stuff?
Over on Xbox 360 is what only can be described as a complete and utter tease. With 3 titles that many will be itching to play on Backwards Compatibility, being slashed in price. Front and centre with these discounts is...
Looks like we're in for another dry spell folks! This week's deals were released a little later than usual, so I didn't have time to get them out to you yesterday as planned. As it happens though, you're not missing much.
So yes, Grand Theft Auto V and Battleborn are both 35% Off on Xbox One. However those interested in the former likely already own it by now and those interested in the latter are probably eyeing up or even playing Overwatch instead.
Greetings one and all, for it is that slightly overdue time to cover this week's Deals with Gold!
There is quite a lot on offer this week on both systems making it quite difficult to make a fair recommendation.
Over on Xbox One there seems to be a focus on indie titles. The best value of which is OlliOlli, a hard as nails 2D arcade skateboarding game at 80% off. I've played it on PC and it's pretty fun.
Over on Xbox 360 is what Microsoft is branding the "Super Sale". There is a selection backwards compatible titles on offer as well as other popular titles. I mark content that is backwards compatible with and titles that have been confirmed to become backwards compatible but are not yet available will be marked with a humble .
As per the usual, all of this week's deals for both systems can be found below...
An interesting week is upon us once more for shooter fans.
Over on Xbox One this week Just Cause 3 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can both be picked up for 50% Off. Both of which being AAA titles from the end of last year that you may not have gotten around to playing yet. It's also worth noting that Battlefield 4 Final Stand is free this week to add to your Battlefield DLC collection.
On Xbox 360 an exciting turn of events has occurred...
All good things must come to an end. Compared to the last 2 weeks of sale items, it's truly slim pickings.
On Xbox One the highlight here is Elite Dangerous Standard Edition at 50% off. From what I hear it's one of the best 'space combat' games out there right now. It's known for being a stellar VR game on PC, but there's no reason it can't be an enjoyable experience on the Xbox One also.
Over on Xbox 360, this week's sale is looking a bit fishy... My recommendation lies simply with the GRID 2 All-In Pack at 50% off. This is certainly a situational recommendation however. If you've been playing Grid 2 recently to your own enjoyment via Games with Gold, buy this to make it the...
Huzzah, finally a week of content on sale that isn't complete and utter tripe.
Over on Xbox One the highlights this week are Alien: Isolation at 60% off and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate at 45%. The former is certainly the better deal here and that game is also to a much higher critical acclaim but in all honesty, it could be "2 Spoopy 4 U". So rather than a single recommendation this week, feel free to pick your poison.
On Xbox 360 this week my recommendation rests on the shoulders of Stalking Simulator 2007...
A day late again? Well I assure you that you won't be a dollar short this week.
Once again we are faced with disappointment as the lacklustre savings persist. On Xbox 360 this week there's no Back Compat content on sale and not really anything that screams "BUY ME", unless you are a huge fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles of course.
All joking aside though, if you are of the gambling sort and fancy putting on your tin foil hat this week, I guess I could recommend Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix at 75% off. Due to being a cult icon and requiring little resources to run, it's an ideal candidate for future Backwards Compatibility support.
Over on Xbox One we are simply faced with crushed dreams...
It's seriously slim pickings this week. On the Xbox 360 side of things there are only 4 items on sale, none of which are backwards compatible and one of the 4 sale items used to be a free download. Ouch.
Things are not much better on Xbox One either and the only thing I can honestly recommend is the Complete Forza Horizon 2 Add-Ons Collection at 60% off which contains every last piece of content ever released for the game (there's quite a lot). If you're a race fan and only have base game and enjoyed playing Horizon 2. I'd highly recommend this offer. For everyone else however, download...
In the aftermath of the Spring Sale, this week's deals are in a word; unremarkable.
The highlight of the deals this week is Evolve at 67% off. But realistically seeing as it's very internet dependent with a very low population of players, I can't honestly recommend it to anyone. Here's hoping it will be available via Games with Gold in the coming months.
On the Xbox 360 I have no recommendations this week as there are no Backwards Compatible titles, or even ones confirmed to be supported in the future. As per the usual though, all of this week's deals for both systems can be found below...
So what happened to the Spring Sale starting on Sunday? Turns out Microsoft simply started a sale on it's Microsoft Store on Xbox One hardware in a sale that appears to be US exclusive. How anti-climactic.
However now that Tuesday has passed, the real Spring Sale has emerged in all it's glory offering a range of discounts although nothing we haven't seen before. I maintain that the best offers right now are the Xbox 360 backwards compatibility titles.
Overall there are so many titles on offer that I'm going to avoid any real reconsiderations other than the cheap Xbox 360 titles that can bolster up your Xbox One library.
There has been no confirmation of any daily deals this time around and instead it seems likely that they'll be some weekend discounts to round off the sale. Only time...
And here lies the calm before the storm. This week's sale is very much a mild warm up for the Spring Sale that lands on Sunday. So you'll be next week's deals early, with another potential post on Tuesday.
With no backwards compatible content on this week's sale and no real "must haves" on the Xbox One side of things. My main recommendation this week is to simply wait until Sunday and see what offers 'spring' up as they are likely saving the good stuff for then.
As per the usual though, all of this week's deals for both systems can be found below...
Another week of Deals with Gold is here and once again the offerings are rather lame. This may have something to do with the Spring Sale that is on the 20th of the month, so it might be worth hanging on for that.
If you really need something new to play this week on Xbox One however I'd likely recommend the Life is Strange Complete Season (Episodes 1-5) at 50% off. I personally haven't played it but have heard only good things about how it's quite a unique title.
Over on Xbox 360 there is no Back Compat supported titles on sale this week, but those of you still using their Xbox 360's can pick up L.A...
Another week of deals with gold is here and it's certainly much weaker than last week's offerings. 'Dem bundles were pretty sweet, yo.
Over on Xbox One however Star Wars fans get another chance to pick up Star Wars Battlefront at 50% off. Other than that most of the other sale items are discounts on microtransactions or things we've previously had in Games with Gold.
On Xbox 360 there is no Backwards Compatible content on offer other than the DLC for the current Games with Gold title Supreme Commander 2 at 50% off. If you still regularly use your 360 it...
Alas the return of meh. Another week of savings that are mostly poor and not very enticing.
There is a diamond in the rough, however! This week I whole heartedly recommend Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, a fantastic HD remaster of the classic PS1 era puzzle platformer "Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee" at 60% off.
Over on the 360, there are some Dragon Ball Z titles on sale for those of you that only have the older generation of hardware and are into fighting games. Unfortunately there is no Backwards Compatible content on sale this week, so no real recommendations this week.
As per the usual, all of this week's deals for both systems can be found below...
