Xbox Live Deals With Gold & Spotlight Sale for the Week of 8/11

projectcars2

Last week’s Xbox Live Deals With Gold were pretty weak, with a small discount on the Borderlands: Handsome Collection and a smattering of EA sports games that were already significantly cheaper with an EA Access subscription. This week offers a bit more variety, but there’s still little reason to be excited.

Xbox One discounts:

  • Project CARS – $40.19
  • Mortal Kombat X – $44.99
  • Thief – $12.00
  • The Swindle – $12.74 (launch discount)
  • Submerged – $15.99 (launch discount)
  • Beach Buggy Racing – $6.69
  • Just Dance 2015 – $20.00
  • The LEGO Movie Videogame – $5.00
  • Max: The Curse of Brotherhood – $3.00
  • Monopoly Family Fun Pack – $20.09
  • Trivial Pursuit Live – $7.50
  • Never Alone – $7.50
  • ScreamRide – $24.00
  • Zoo Tycoon – $12.00

If you never picked up Max: The Curse of Brotherhood while it was free through Games With Gold, it’s a steal at $3.00. The LEGO Movie Videogame is nicely priced at $5.00 as well. I picked up ScreamRide on a whim during the Ultimate Game Sale and was surprised by just how fun it was. There’s tons of user created content to blast through, the campaign kept me occupied for a few hours, and it’s still a game I go back to when I just want to throw people through buildings. I also highly recommend the story-based platformer Never Alone, because a lot of TLC went in to its development and it’s really just a fantastic little game.

Xbox 360 discounts:

  • Hitman: Absolution – $3.99
  • Hitman: Blood Money – $4.99
  • Hitman HD Pack – $4.99
  • Just Dance 2015 – $20.00
  • LEGO Indiana Jones – $6.60
  • LEGO Marvel Super Heroes – $5.00
  • The LEGO Movie Videogame – $5.00
  • Mafia 2 – $3.99
  • Max: The Curse of Brotherhood – $3.00
  • Quantum Conundrum – $4.50
  • Rabbids Invasion – $10.00
  • ScreamRide – $18.00
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – $6.00
  • Sonic Generations – $6.60
  • Syberia II – $5.00
  • Toy Story 3 – $8.00
  • Trivial Pursuit Live – $5.00
  • Zoo Tycoon – $6.60

With Mafia 3 confirmed, this isn’t a bad time to catch up on the series with Mafia 2 at such a low price point. The same could be said about the Hitman series as well, but those seem to be on sale every other week now. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a pretty awesome kart racing hybrid as well, if you’re in to that sort of thing. Aside from the Mario Kart series, I’d say it has the best roster and track selection of any other kart racer on the market.

Picking anything up?
