It’s Tuesday–or at least it is here on the east coast–which can only mean one thing: Monday is over. Well, two things, since it’s also time for another Xbox Deals With Gold and Spotlight Sale.
This week’s Deals With Gold offers 20-50% off of the brilliantly crafted episodic adventure series Life is Strange. Developer DONTNOD impressed me with their writing early on, featuring various choices with severe, long-term consequences that play out through each of the game’s subsequent episodes.
Life is Strange is easily one of my favorite games of 2015, and you can give the first episode a try this week for only $2.50. If you’re even remotely interested though, I’d just go with the Complete Season.
- Life is Strange: Episode 1 – $2.50
- Life is Strange Season Pass (Ep. 2-5) – $13.59
- Life is Strange Complete Season (Ep. 1-5) – $15.99
- Rory McIllroy PGA Tour – $40.19
The Spotlight Sale this week primarily focuses on ID@Xbox indies, but there’s a few odds and ends tucked away; like Call of Duty: Ghosts and Killer Instinct.
- Badland: Game of the Year Edition – $6.00
- Call of Duty: Ghosts – Gold Edition – $30.00
- The Escapists – $11.99
- Killer Instinct: Complete Collection – $59.99
- LA Cops – $7.50
- Oddworld: New n’ Tasty – $13.39
- Roundabout – $7.50
- Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones – $7.50
- Stick it to the Man – $3.30
- The Swapper – $10.04
- Toro – $13.39
- Ultratron – $5.00
- Ziggurat – $7.50
So what’s worth picking up, and what should you avoid like the plague? Badland: GOTY is a lot of fun in a chaotic sort of way. If you like campy b-movies, I highly recommend Roundabout as well. I’ve had some good fun with The Escapists lately–in preparation for The Walking Dead cross-over–but its punishing difficulty isn’t for everyone.
