In the sale:
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga (free with GWG starting 16 May) Games On Demand 75% Spotlight

It's good that they flagged up that it's going to be in GWG, but why even put it in the sale?!

Bought the Resident Evil triple pack in the sale - Am I being daft, or does Resi 4 not have subtitles? :dread:

Has anyone been playing that Paladins game? Aside from being a blatant Overwatch knockoff, it's actually really decent fun and doesn't have the barriers you'd expect from a Free To Play game. I'd definitely recommend giving it a blast if you haven't already.

I played some Paladins last night. Was fun, but I don't get all this card nonsense that is in games now. Give me something like the Shadowrun FPS that had different and balanced characters that I learnt what to do with. Every time I pop in a new online game now they want me to open chests and use cards and stuff wat? I am too old for that shiznitz.

Has anyone turned an Xbox off during an update? Mine's started updating itself but it's been stuck on 88% for an hour now :dread:

So with free games with Xbox live I read that on the Xbox one you can't play the game if u discontinue your subscription but you can on the 360 but does that apply to 360 game on the Xbox one?

360 games are yours for life regardless of the platform you play them on.

So, I bought the Resident Evil triple pack in the sales. Probably the worst decision of my life. Never played RE6 before, so started Leon's campaign. It's. strawberry floating. Dreadful. Every enemy throws themselves at you leading to some stupid strawberry floating rattle the stick QTE, then it spams you with zombies, dogs, those stupid harder zombies, and then you get a bloody "defend this area" horde section. In a Resident Evil game? Give me a break.

Are any of the other stories any better or have I just totally wasted my money on this? And playing in splitscreen I literally can't pause the action. strawberry floating shambles.

I own Battlefield 1 but not the dlc I don't complain about not having the dlc because it's my choice to not have it and levels for Scorpio is just a more expensive version of that.


So not the same then? Also it would be a PR disaster: "Microsoft locks content behind hardware paywall", etc. Plus it would have to be significant enough to convince people to upgrade but not too much to piss off the larger install base of the "obsolete" platform.

Sale is pretty decent and extensive, but is it weird that 75% off 360 games seems a bit stingy to me?

When do these sales usually go live? There's no big splash on the Store for the discounts at the moment, and the few games I've checked (Catherine and Red Dead Redemption) still seem to be the pre-sale prices. Guess they'll all get updated when they update the Games with Gold?
