Its actually been like this since the late stages of last generation. If you wait 3 or 4 more months it'll be half that price.

I loaded up Halo's newly added firefight mode last night and it was surprisingly fun. Not the same firefight that was in ODST/REach at all, There is a bit less strategy but a lot is a lot grander in scale and loads of fun with lots of REQ to be earned for playing it. They also added a Mech Grunt that rips his dialogue straight from Sunset Overdrives Fizze
Nice... I'm gonna try it this weekend for sure. I haven't played a Warzone game in ages, and I've got a bunch of req stuff to use up :)

BTW, how's Inside?

Thats what they told me, I had to grill them a bit to get the 40$ price back though.
They said the system sent me multiple emails regarding my payment issue but I didn't even receive one! Policy is policy even their supervisor cant give me special discount/credits after promotion expired. Guess I should never pre-order from Amazon again :(

Tropical Freeze is still my favorite platformer.

Beautiful scenery, and fun levels. Not finished it yet?
I've been taking my time with it between other games and i've found the later worlds so hard I can only handle it in short sittings. It's fun and a gorgeous game but it can get pretty difficult and frustrating so I take it 2-3 levels at a time

For anyone looking for a console Pokemon game, grab Digimon Cyber Sleuth. This game is great.

It's literally what Pokemon could be on a console. Having a blast with it.

I finished it off over the weekend and its incredible, its a short game but its on another level.
Its hard for me to put into words why exactly its so good but between its art style/graphics, sound design, and the world on display there is a feeling of dread and fear well at the same time an immense amount of curiosity that I've rarely felt well playing a video game which is crazy because when you strip all that stuff away its actually a fairly by the numbers puzzle platformer (the puzzles themselves are fairly one note and simple but satisfying).

If you do pick it up (which I highly recommend) make sure you play with headphones or loud volume

On a side note I finally finished Super Mario Galaxy 2 this weekend after buying it when it went on the VC months ago. This is such a wonderfully imaginative and fun game, I wish Nintendo would make another 3D Mario game.

Nice... It's next on my list. I absolutely loved Limbo, and this is an absolute spiritual successor to that game.

Currently almost finished with XCom, and I also want to get into Banner Saga 2, but Inside will be a good respite from turn based gaming.

Anyone have any opinions about "Until Dawn". Is it worth $29.99?

One of my favorite games of this generation. Easily worth 3x that price.

It regularly goes on sale for $19.99 though, if you want to wait. But either wait, grab it.

It's a pretty fun game, especially if you play it with other people. You will get one really solid playthrough and sometimes people do a 2nd to observe the differences or do Trophies. Totally worth the $30 IMO, I paid $60 and no regrets.

Did anyone pick up any of the games on sale through XBL or PSN recently?

I finally picked up DS3 despite saying I wouldnt until I beat DS1. Half tempted at throwing money at Doom, Wolfenstien, and Aassasins Creed but I dont like having more then 1 game to play at once.

CD Project Red is releasing a Game of the Year version of The Witcher 3

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016- ... on-spotted

I bought the standard version of the game and season pass although I cannot play the DLC until I reach at least level 30.

CD Projekt Red has, in a statement given to Eurogamer, confirmed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition.

Game director Konrad Tomaszkiewicz told us: "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was a gigantic effort for the entire studio, and both the team and me were amazed by the good reception of Geralt's adventures. Since launch, we've released two expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, which added a lot of new adventures to the already potent mix.

"With all the free DLC and updates the game received so far, including significant changes to the game's interface and mechanics, many gamers have asked us if we're working on some sort of a Game of the Year Edition. I'm happy to confirm - yes, plans are in motion to release such an edition. We'll release more details, including the release date, in the future. In the meantime, I'd like to thank every fan of the game for their support - you're really amazing!"

If you are thinking of those 3, go for Doom! I sound like a broken record on this game but it surprised me so much. A game I thought would last me 10-15 hours at most, I ended up playing for 25.

I did not dig the demo or the multiplayer beta at all and I feel its a game much better suited to M/K but the word of mouth is making it hard to resist. It being the most expensive of the bunch is also not helping its cause.

Yeah, once it drops to that magical $20-30 range, I think we'll see an uptick. I actually lent my copy to friends because they didn't want to pay that much for it... I generally don't keep games, but Doom, Halo 5 and Titanfall are the 3 remaining physical discs in my library.

Also, I didn't find it difficult to play on controller. It's a fast game, and will take some getting used to, but it's not an overly precise game. You're constantly on the move in either corridors or medium sized arena areas so I never found the need to whip around 180 degrees instantly was an absolute necessity either.
