GTA Online Heist update detailed

GTAO640image

Next week sees the release of the long delayed mythical Heists update for GTA Online. Along with the four player heists mode, three new PvP modes have been announced.

“Come out and Play” two teams of three in a “hunters” and “runners” role. Runners are supplied with powerful weapons but can only run on foot, while the hunters wield shotguns and ride motorbikes or ATVs. Hunters must stay on their bikes and have access to unlimited lives, while the Runners have just one life but all their weapons available to pick off the Hunters at will. 

In Siege Mentality, a team of up to four players are bunkered in against an invading force of six. Defenders have all of their weapons; attackers have unlimited lives and just sawn-off shotguns.

I just found it strange why the trophy didn't pop. Just watched the Trevor ending online and the achievement is unlocked the moment the credits begin to roll. Maybe I just hit a funny bug first time round.
Born2beSlicker
I think the car on the cliff one is considered canon for the eventual DLC coming for the campaign. The other two are just for you.
Harry
well the original ending I got was all 3 pushing a car off the cliff. When I reloaded that last mission it was franklin and Michael facing off with rather catastrophic results for Micheal.
NighteyesUK
Which ending would that be?
Harry
So I finished this a few weeks back and thought it was great but then I was doing some trophy hunting and realised there was one hidden one. I looked it up online and it's the complete game trophy. The advice was to load up the last mission again and see if it pops. I did that and got a COMPLETELY different ending. I just thought it was bizarre that this ending was the only one that unlocks the trophy. Is this considered the true ending?
Harry
I second that. Very interested in heists. I can't get enough of this world. I just like standing in the middle of the desert for no reason with nothing to do.

PC launches in March so I expect April-May for some Story DLC (announcement ) I would be all over that. I kinda hope it's in the same style as what they did with GTA IV. A couple of really nice stand alone story expansions.

They said campaign DLC is happening this year. Mind you, they said Heists would be here in March 2014 so who knows. Getting the platinum will be a bastard though, as some of the online ones are difficult.

finished this today. Or at least watched the credits roll. The only GTA i've ever managed to finish and it was great. I'll try and get a platinum at some point I expect. I really hope the expand it.

Got this today. Holy shit it looks good. The online side of things has been greatly improved since the last time I played. Transferring my character then finding some games was a breeze. Cool how it gives you all your online achievements from 360 as well. Very much looking forward to exploring Los Santos and Blaine County once again. :)

This game is stellar. It still looks beautiful, It's still taking me places I never knew existed, It's still making me laugh and it's still making be do stuff in missions that having me jumping in my seat with joy. ....also I continue to be completely incapable of getting on ladders :lol:

lol nice. Quite a lot of crazy stuff happens in this game, its really great. I get a bit a annoyed though because it's just auto aim shooting unless you change it and end up in a half empty room with people who want to actually aim. One guy last night killed me 20 times from miles away in a blink of an eye. I hope one day they will nail the on foot stuff to the point that they don't even need the auto aim. I turned the dead zone to zero on my controls and picked the scheme that allow RB to run rather than A. Thats an improvement for starters as it allows you to look around while running This game is definitely a sum of it's parts.

So this happened to me the other night :lol:

..,and no doubt my iMac will eat this alive at 60fps in 1440p despite it being 'not for games' but you'll never ever capture that X factor feeling consoles have. I can't put my finger on it but it's why people pick consoles rather than get games for next to nothing on Steam, with way better visuals.
You can't really say that without statistical proof considering Valve is a private company though they don't release sales figures but everything always points to the fact millions every year buy those games and enjoy them. There is no X Factor there is only what environment you're tied to the most. If you like Consoles fair play but I really don't get the need to shit on something that you obviously don't care for. PC has its audience and when a developer actually takes the time its always shown to be best simply because hardware is always changing there is more horses that can push whats on screen. Anyway there is room for all formats but consider this PC isn't just for games its for everything from business, graphic design to everything else in between it plays games too :geek: . Its not in a war with consoles it doesn't need to be lol.
I grew up a Pc gamer from the age of 12 in 1992. Apart from a 3DO in 1996 the first console I got was the original xbox and since then I preffered consoles. I've played a lot of half life, counter strike ,starwars galaxies, Everquest, WoW, Battlefiled etc etc over the last 15 years. Right now I'm playing rocksmith and have just bought a ton of DLC for it via Steam. The console version of that game is absolute trash, neither next gen consoles can handle audio technically well. I would still rather play everything on a console though. When most things look better on PC and Steam sells the biggest library of games ever available for absolutely stupid money (those sales are legendary) there has to be a reason why consoles still exist. It can't be the cost of PCs . You could buy a cheap arse PC and upgrade it over time (the benchmark is the new gen consoles) and just think of the money you'll save on games. I've heard PC gaming being described as soulless and that's probably what it is for me at least. Steam could be the answer though. It has great community options and even supports broadcasting and remote play. I am actually looking at this steam box project as being the answer. To begin with it sounded like absolute madness. I'm very interested to see how it goes though because if they can capture that X factor I'm talking about while still keeping the perks of the PC platform they might just break down those barriers that stop people like me using it as a preffered platform.

I know this is an Xbox part of the forum, but I see a lot of you have PS4s. I'm hoping someone can offer some advice. I'm having a strange issue with this game on my New PS4. I purchased the PS4 with GTA 2 weeks ago. Everything seems to have set up as it should, even my character transferred across for my Xbox 360 account with no issues. The issue I'm having is that whenever I go on the GTA Online, my PSN profile shows as being offline with a red circle/cross. It only happens with the online mode, not the single player and no other games. I've filed a ticket with Rockstar and Sony and received the generic responses. I've re-installed the game and latest patch, everything is up to date, I've forwarded ports on my HomeHub3, I've place the PS4 in the DMZ, I've even tried turning off the HomeHub3 Firewall, I've tried to create a new character for online. But I still get the same issue of showing offline. All other features are available, I'm just not showing online until I reset the console. This is an issue with friends inviting me to games etc. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Has anybody else had this with GTAOnline or any other games? Thanks.

Finished this a couple of days ago. To begin with I really didn't like this game. The humour and the gameplay fell a bit flat, it was only the fact I'd heard from several sources that the game improves greatly 3-4 hours in that kept me going. So glad I stuck with it. Once you unlock the double bounce and air dash getting around the game world is a joy. All the crazy weapons and amps make the combat super fun as well. The side missions and challenges really flesh out the experience and none of it felt like filler. The writing and jokes get a lot better as well. Loved all the breaking of the 4th wall stuff and the way they ripped on pop culture and made fun of gaming tropes. I thought the side mission that involved collecting over due side quest icons was particularly clever. :lol: If anyone missed this when it came out, I'd highly recommend you go back and give it a go.
I think everybody says the same thing, myself included, after about 3-4 hours (and once you get that Air Dash) it really gets so much better. Thats not to say its total shit to begin with it just goes from OK to Amazing. I wasnt enjoying it very much after an hour but it just gets brilliant and the humour does get better as you play. It has the best traversal in any game ever. My idiot big brother gave it 20 mins and gave up saying "Its a worse looking Infamous" He is a twat when it comes to games though.

I've put more hours into this since finishing the main storyline than it did to complete the story, it was a stroke of genius making this a score based game. My only gripe with it is people online who have no concept of teamwork in a team based game. eg. Setting the night defence off immediately before anyone has set traps or using massive explosion weapons on the challenge stages so that everyone including themselves fail said challenge as everything is dead Can't blame Insomniac for that though

"Apparently", it has sold a little over 400,000 units so far. I'm really not sure how much is needed for it to be considered a success but it looks like that Microsoft is treating it as a loss-leader to help establish it as an Xbox brand for the future.
Whilst I wouldn't imagine those figures aren't complete disaster I would have expected more for one of the main exclusives for the Xbox this year. It shows that most people won't bother taking the risk on something new.

It's great. Traversal takes some getting used to but once you pick it up along with shooting at the same time, it's so fluid. I would say the first 15-20 mins are a bit slow but that's down to guiding you through the systems and controls. I hope a few others will pick this up this week so we can do some chaos squad. Some random gameplay from single player.
Tezcatlipoca
Sounds great :D The main niggle I've seen is about the excessive fetch quests early on, but they're not so annoying as to ruin the game. I may have to put it in my "skip it 'till a quieter period" pile, though, along with AC Unity, Far Cry 4, and new gen GTA V. I only just started Shadow of Mordor at the weekend, and will be getting Halo and possibly DA Inquisition in November - no time for another 20-30 hour open world game.

On my phone at the moment so it's hard to compile any reviews but it's currently sitting at 82 on metacritic after 36 reviews. 9s from polygon and Ign with gamespot and eurogamer giving it a 8. Turning out to be a better game than I thought it would be. :)
Sounds to be as good as it looks then. I can predict Metascore's really well and how the game will pan out but often they don't match my own personal feelings. I love the actual graphical look of it but i'm not sure the gameplay would be there for me personally. The colours are really lovely though and I don't mind the attitude from the characters.

I'm very surprised at the scores. Expected 7's which is good but 8/9's is a big deal for Xbox.

Damn, think I will hold out for it until my backlog looks a little respectable. Metro Redux is long also, It's taking the bulk of my gaming time alongside Fifa of course. I cannot wait to play this though, the game itself is going for $40 max here in the US. Looks a bargain.

Yeah, it's quite a long game. But the length will be dependent on the difficulty level you choose to play at, and how brave you are when you're playing. I reckon they could have trimmed a little off the end of it (only one particular section really). But other than that it all felt just right.
I took about 15 hours start to finish on normal. I reckon if I hadn't been such a pussy and spent so much time hiding from the Alien in the early encounters I'd have been done inside 12. :lol: I think this games biggest draw back was it's pacing. The whole 3+ hour set of missions where you didn't see the alien once and only came up against working Joes was way too long. The nest reveal, almost made the slog worth while however.

I made a start on one of the DLC bits, but just could not take any more. Even on Novice the game has you on edge every second you are playing it. I'm giving it a break, but will go back to finish those parts off. What Creative Assembly has achieved with this game, considering they have no history with this genre, is nothing short of amazing.
Pug
One of my fave games ever.....and I don't do stealth games usually. Finished it tonight and loved it. Looking forward to the two bonus missions now.

Picked this up on a whim. Didnt think i would ever buy as it doesnt look for me but have to give it a chance. Only played an hour so far but nothing really happened. Look forward to polishing off Mordor so i can give it a decent go.

Britxbox - Alien: Isolation’s third Survivor Mode add-on pack, Safe Haven, is available from today – features new Salvage Mode

If you have both systems, I recommend getting it for the PS4. The scanner sound through the controller speaker adds to the tension.
Tezcatlipoca
I would be tempted to go back through it on Novice if I still had it, but the pre-release copy was disc not download and I don't want to go & buy something I've played before when I already have far too many games to play :lol:

I think this game is scary as shit! Little to no resources to deal with most encounters. Near instant death when spotted in most encounters. Punishing save system. Killer ambience. Constant dread. It's fucking awesome.
NighteyesUK
It was widely reported that the game's original easiest mode would be classed as normal mode on most other games. The reports of repeated deaths and lack of save points, along with glitches and bugs, are what put me off buying it at launch. Your good review included. :) When I read they'd patched the game to not only fix many of the issues, but also introduce easier and harder modes, my interest was piqued again. When I saw it for £25 in Game it was a no brainer. Best £25 I've spent for a long time. I'm interested now to play it on the harder difficulties, as on Novice the human npcs are blind and deaf. :lol:
Tezcatlipoca
NighteyesUK
Also, I read Tez's review. I played it on Novice mode, which was patched in after Tez wrote his review. I wonder if he'd change his mind now.. What put me off getting this at launch was all the reports of the high difficulty, and the dying over and over factor; but for me that wasn't the case. Sure, I did die quite a bit, but only a few times near the end did I feel any of the deaths were cheap fucking facehuggers!. For me, it felt just right.
I did wonder if you were playing it on the new very easy mode :lol: Perhaps I would change my mind, but it's too late now anyway.
NighteyesUK
Outlast is the closest, I'd say. Alien doesn't creep you out as much as it, and it's nowhere near as creepy as PT. Alien has a handful of jump scares, but really it's just a handful. The thing is, Outlast and PT were new IPs, so the player had no idea what to expect. Whereas Alien is very much a known quantity. You know what you're getting. It's a different kind of fear. What Alien ultimately made me feel was dread and tension, along with courage and relief. There are some scripted moments here and there, but there are far more emergent moments. There was even one part late on where I deliberately lured the Alien into the room I was in, as I knew it would make short work of the tooled up guy in there ready to kill me. Yeah, there was a risk the alien could have found me. But that's something I feel Creative Assembly got the balance just right on: risk vs reward. The game almost constantly puts you in situations where danger is very near, but not absolutely present. I found myself thinking, should I go for that door, what if the alien comes when I'm trying to open it. Are there any vents near the door? I'll just check my scanner. Then, as I'm approaching the door, the scanner beeps, I pause to check it. Then hear bumps coming from the ceiling in the room (the sound design is amazing, best use of surround sound I've ever come across). The scanner now shows a solid dot very near me. Do I go for the door? Would you? ;) Honestly, this is fantastic. It feels like a true sequel to Ridley Scott's Alien.
Harry
I feel the same about mass effect and the alien franchise but disagree with Dragon Age because I'm not taking it too seriously, it's just fun. I might give this a try sometime soon but I want to know is it a jump scare game? If Doom is totally not scary , Outlast is in the middle and P.T being the extreme , where does Alien fit.
NighteyesUK

It aint underrated, it's massively overrated.
And I say Dragon Age Inquisition is massively overrated, yet you have it is your game of the year. Honestly, the world appears to be full of Bioware fanboys, and that's coming from me, one of the most ardent Mass Effect fans. This game has given me far more memorable moments than Bioware's above average at best, by-the-numbers effort. I'm not even a fan of survival horror, nor a massive fan of the Alien films. I rate them, but I haven't watched them for over a decade, and I haven't even seen Prometheus or Resurrection - thought I will be rectifying that after playing this, and my bro getting my the box set for my birthday. I finished this tonight. Fucking fantastic. I had one issue with the last level: getting caught by the alien, and having to escape, again, wasn't fun, was completely unnecessary, and just pissed me off. If this were a film, a good director would have cut that, no matter how much s/he liked it. It just prolonged the game for 15 to 20 minutes when it really didn't need to. Everything after that was great though, despite much of it being QTE territory. But overall, yeah this is definitely my singleplayer game of the year. Yeah I had some niggles throughout the game, but they were just that: niggles. Nothing like the shit I put up with in Dragon Age Inquisition, or Watch_Dogs. The tension is something, well, I don't think I've been put through the ringer so much by any game before. Dead Space has got nothing on this, with Condemned probably being the closest contender. This really surprised me. Also, I read Tez's review. I played it on Novice mode, which was patched in after Tez wrote his review. I wonder if he'd change his mind now.. What put me off getting this at launch was all the reports of the high difficulty, and the dying over and over factor; but for me that wasn't the case. Sure, I did die quite a bit, but only a few times near the end did I feel any of the deaths were cheap fucking facehuggers!. For me, it felt just right.

Once I complete my backlog this will be my next purchase, I was looking at the release calendar and Battlefield is the only game I am interested in the coming months although it's going to take me atlease a couple of months to finish of what I have outstanding. Metro Redux (Xbox One) Far Cry 4 (Xbox One) Call Of Duty AW (Xbox 360) TLOU Remastered (PS4) Metro Redux Last Light (Xbox One) I also want to play Battlefield 4 and GTA again but the next gen versions. Mario Kart 8, Fifa 15 and Super Mario 3D also but they are my to relax go to games and I'm in no real rush to complete. Plenty of games, not enough time. I'm glad it's a slow start to the year.
Pug
Enjoying at the mo, not sure for how long because I'm not really a stealth game fan. Just got the scanner, another reason I prefer the PS4 over Xbox One, the scanner noise comes out of the controller speaker. Good stuff.

Finally finished this last night. Don't quite get all the criticism this received upon release. I can only imagine people who had problems with the alien AI simply didn't understand what type of game they where playing and/or didn't understand the game mechanics and utilisle all the gadets/ weapons at they're disposal. It has it's faults sure, It's about 4-5 hours too long and there's too many filler missions which really ruins the pacing at times. All in all It's a fantastic, heart pounding experience though and anyone who's a fan of the movies should at least give it a go. SPOILERS! Whilst I loved the way they handled the twist and the nest level was a real "Fucking hell!!" moment. I really wish they could have settled the whole egg morphing debate. I mean how else do the Aliens in game reproduce? There was no evidence of a Queen.

About 7-8 missions in now and I'll admit I got extremely frustrated at one point. While for the most part the mechanics work well, sometimes the alien just fucks you over and there's nothing you can do. Also it annoys me that you can consult your map at your leisure yet you have to craft items and access computer terminals in real time. I dunno I think a few inconsistencies with the game play and the so far meh story are stopping this from being a truly great game.

The motion detector is so cool, massive smile on my face when I picked that up! I also ha to kill those people near the lift :lol: I will sit down this this again tonight, and stream it again if PSN holds up. btw, those working joes......damn they're creepy!
Yeah, just after I got the motion detector I was scavenging the contents of a crate. I stood up and turned around and one of them was standing right behind me. I screamed like a school girl. :lol:
They're tough as nails! As I found out though, quite easy to avoid if you need to. I streamed for almost 2 hours tonight and didn't see the alien once. I heard it, and im sure it kept popping up on the tracker, moving around in the vents..... I don't think I could play if I wasn't streaming.....it weird, I like these scary games but I feel better if i'm commentating and other people are watching,

Sat down with this properly for the first time this morning. They've got the feel and look of the source material down to a tee. This game oozes atmosphere. I've just got to the part where you get the motion detector. The first encounter with the alien is heart pounding stuff. Can't wait to play more. :)

Yup. I avoided them initially but then one of them was standing right in front of the lift on the way back. They had to die.

I love this game. This one where you can ignore the bad reviews because it's clearly not going to be everyone's cup of tea. The atmosphere, the tension and immersion are all 100%. I like the hacking stuff, and the tools you need to do certain things, it's brilliant. While I love it, I can see why people don't get on with it, but for me this is Alien perfection.

This arrived today. Looking forward to playing it. I take it I should turn head tracking and noise detection off? The only other game to use head tracking I've played was BF4 and it was horrible.

To be honest I didn't actually no there was an achievement I just tried to avoid contact with anything. Though the Working Joes sometimes you just can't avoid them. I don't really know why I got it though because I would purposely throw noise makers at the humans to attract the alien so I killed them by proxy. I guess that doesn't count though when you have a 7 ft alien doing your dirty work.

I finished this off today. By far my fave game of the year. Visuals, sound, mechanics and difficulty all spot on. I found some parts in the first third a bit frustrating but once you get your groove going it becomes an amazingly fun game of cat and mouse (and Joes). The second half of the game was particularly impressive - for the story and twists, the length is perfect.
kelticdave
8) and complete
kelticdave
So 14 hours in to this and well hmm not sure what I think of it. Its had its moments but they are few and far between and the Alien really isn't scary at all. In fact I got to a point early on in the game that I started using it to clear out areas with humans. Its extremely easy to predict once you've watched it a few times actually. Graphics are a 8.5 Sound is a 9 Game-Play is 5 Story is a 6 Average is: 7 Not finished it and I have enjoyed my time with it but its honestly just as I felt when watching it dragging out and I kind of want it to hurry up and end :lol: https://imgur.com/a/OziFc#1
kelticdave
No where near deep into the game only jumped into it for like an hour or so but the game looks amazing. Loving the atmosphere specifically how the lighting effects are being used. Feels very much like I'm in the Alien Universe the cool computer boot up sounds are just so nice.

Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, a standalone title which doesn’t require the original Forza Horizon 2, is out 27th March and will be free until 10th April. After 10th April the expansion will cost $10.
So is it F2P only until April 10 or will people who download it after that have to pay for it?

Hi Guys I am new to consoles (bought for my son) we have downloaded the Storm Island card to Forza Horizon 2 but cannot find it anywhere? The menu says its purchased and we downloaded it but the tab is still greyed out and we cannot get to it on the menus....... Any advise gratefully received. Do you need to complete lots of levels or something? Its not on the main map either.
Craigimt
That's one thing that disappointed me about the main game was that there was these nice dirt roads and awesome cars to fly down them with but there was no proper rally. I'll have to buy this. So I just bought it and it was only £8 for me cause I got VIP. Not too shabby!
Mr C
Downloaded the storm island expansion today. Was a little pricey at £15.99 but there does seem to be a lot of content. Played for a short while earlier and it looks absolutely stunning, they really do have the weather effects nailed down in this. It's very much an offroad/rally experience so if you enjoy that I'd say it's highly recommended.

Forza fans, your Bucket List in Forza Horizon 2 just got longer. Today’s content update for Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One adds 15 new Bucket List Challenges added to the game for free. Bucket List Challenges have proven to be an enormously popular addition to the Forza Horizon series – the most popular event type in the game after career races, in fact! – and today’s update brings more of these automotive adventures to your Xbox One. Some of these new Bucket List challenges feature DLC cars, including cars from the Falken Car Pack like the Alfa Romeo 4C and the Lamborghini Jalpa. Here's something you might not know: You don't need to own the DLC packs or the DLC cars themselves in order to do these challenges! Even if you don't own any Forza Horizon 2 DLC, you can hop right in any Bucket List Challenge right away and take that car for a spin in the event as many times as you like.

Joined the club yesterday. Not a massive fan of racing games normally but this is superb. I love the open world nature and side quests, was happy to see I had missed an xp board and had a 20km drive to go back for it. You know you're onto a winner when that doesn't feel like a grind. One gripe would GE the lack of songs per station, listening to Horizon XS and gone through each song numerous times. Will give online a bash later this week, would welcome a few on the friends list who play this so please send me an invite.

I'd say this is a Forza game in name only. I love both versions, although I prefer Horizon. I prefer open world racers.

I don't think it's that much of a good representation of the mainline forza games, largely those have bored me. Horizon though has all the fun that Forza Motorsport lacks most of the time. But then for me Horizon is almost the perfect racer.

They've really nailed that Sim/arcade sweet spot, again and refined the already great original. Really addictive "oh just one more" becomes "might as well play another", to "I'll just get the boards around this area" then "just this feature race". Seems like they've got load of content in there too.

Different cars have very different handling. I have my favourites where the handling is just perfect. All of the cars can be tuned though to correct over steer. It may seem complicated but it's fairly easy to do. If you can't be bothered to tune you can download others tuning set ups. Have a look in the descriptions about what type of tune it is (ie. Speed, handling etc) before downloading

Finally sitting down with the demo. Wow, I'm very impressed. I appreciate the hell out of Forza's technical ability but track racing gets boring fast for me.

33% off AC Unity takes it down to £36.84 this week, whereas I bought the digital download from CDKeys.com for less than £20... and the current price at CDKeys.com is £9.99! £9.99 FFS!

How many times has that Rockstar sale happened on 360? How many times does NBA 2K stuff go on sale on Xbox One? Why is Amazing Spider-man 2 still so expensive in contrast to its quality? I hope the double games for gold next month also inspires some decent sales.

Once downloaded they are tied to your account and are yours "forever"... but, on Xbox On, [u:2ewpakr1]only so long as you subscribe to Xbox Live Gold[/u:2ewpakr1] (just like PS+ free games). Oh, and, Rayman Legends? That'll be another GwG free game that I already bought ages ago and still haven't played! :oops: :lol:

Not official yet but Rayman legends could be the Xbox One GWG next month (Along with IDARB again). The 360 gets Tomb raider and Bioshock Infinite. Double the free games for the month of April.
I looked at getting for ages, I didn't so It would be a welcome addition to the backlog. :mrgreen: also I have never used a games with gold deal do they expire the next month or once downloaded do they stick to your system permanently?

If they ever fix it. Then yes it's a great price.

So did everybody else. They seem to have changed the discount rate since that leak. It's now 40% instead of 60%. Still great value for what you're getting but I can understand some people are a bit annoyed at this sudden change.
Danger Moss
I thought it was supposed to be £18? I picked up sniper elite 3. Nearly done with V2 so really looking forward to giving it a go. From what I can gather a lot of previous games problems have been ironed out.
Born2beSlicker
Halo is on sale now for £26.99.
Mr C
Oh and a little tip I read elsewhere. State of Decay is £3 odd in the 360 sale. Owners of the 360 version will receive a 33% discount on the Xbox One version. I don't know what price the Xbox One version will be but it's likely that any saving you make will be more than the current cost of the 360 version. Worth it if you haven't bought the game yet.

I'll definitely buy Sniper Elite 3. I've been playing V2 on 360 and been loving it.
Ditto, going to finish v2 then play Sniper Elite 3.
patrick_bateman
Played the start of Sniper Elite 3. Loving the open aspect of the levels, reminds me of takeovers in Far Cry.

Alien Isolation $24. I think I'm going to bite.

I wonder if the final line up has been finalised. Limbo is on offer but not shown, PES2015 was just recently added, the awesome LOTF deal has disappeared. Edit - Theres 50% off of Dead or Alive 5 and 10% off The Escapists (although this 10% has been like this since last week, buy this game!) Another Edit! - Guacamelee is £2.80 right now! Sherlock Holmes - £18, down from £45 (heard this is rather great) What the fuck is going on? :lol:

The page for the Ultimate Sale has changed during the day. When I looked at it at lunchtime it also had the weekend deals, but they've vanished. Anyway... Britxbox - Xbox Store Ultimate Game Sale plus this week’s Deals with Gold the usual weekly deals aren't great, but the Ultimate Game Sale has some fucking awesome discounts (including 50% off the Telltale collection again, like late last year).

I did look at those prices and think either Microsoft are doing another 'experiment' or they got something wrong. I bet that £7 on lords of the fallen is meant to have a 1 or 2 in front of it.
It could be one of the weekend/daily deals and they put it up by mistake. Thats my guess.
Pug
That'd be great, cheers B2bS.

When is Halo MCC cheap? Still says £44, not paying that.
It's meant to be going to £18 at the weekend.

Very weird. I almost bought it earlier when it was £7.50 :?
patrick_bateman
It seems LOTF has been taken down. Glad i picked it up when i did. I wonder why this is.
patrick_bateman
I have picked up Sniper Elite 3 and LOTF so far. Prob pick up Costume Quest 2, Styx and Trials Fusion as well. Wouldnt mind trying the co-op in Sniper Elite with someone (competitive multiplayer looks fun as well from what i watched on youtube), you can co-op the entire campaign.
Mr C
Got sniper elite, Lords of the fallen, Temple of osiris and kinect sports for approx £30. Bargain :D
patrick_bateman
Supposedly Halo is going to be £18 so will need to pick that up. Im going away for the weekend and every penny i have will be getting spent on drink and food. Why do these sales come at the most inopportune time for me. :lol:
patrick_bateman
Some of the games are reduced right now even though the sale is not supposed to start until the 18th. Sniper Elite 3 - £10 (bought, loved the previous games and multiplayer looks fun) Lords of the Fallen - £7.50 (will be buying in next few days) Costume Quest 2 - £3.96 NBA Live 15 - £8.25 How to Survive - £6.40 Styx - £6 Trials Fusion - £6.40 Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris & Season pass - £8 More to come...
Harry
Maybe don't put it in your pocket then? :mrgreen:

Born2beSlicker
Maybe don't buy games you don't really want?
Yeah i know, when i have some excess cash it burns a hole in my pocket as they say. :D

patrick_bateman
I had £40 credit on my account and I wasted £20 on games i didnt really want in the last week. Then this happens. :evil:
Born2beSlicker
Halo for £20ish is pretty fantastic for the amount of content you get.
Harry
I sold lords of the fallen the other day. Didn't manage to finish it. It was pretty good until the very final stages where it makes you back track. I think I was on the end game boss but it was clear to me I needed to grind out some levels to stand a chance and that's what I couldn't be arsed to do.
patrick_bateman
Theres an upcoming mega sale (14th to 24th) But heres a leak of whats on offer. (This is leaked Austrailian details but likely it will be the same here) http://www.xbox.com/en-AU/promotions/sa ... deals-TEST 80% off Sniper Elite isgreat, will be picking that up as like the previous games 60% off Halo 85% of Lords of the Fallen is very good as well

I've bought BF4 premium asits was a great price. Got BF4 as part of EA access. Titanfall for that price is a bargain. My fav online game. I bought it on black Friday.
Born2beSlicker
I can't remember last time a DWG or GWG was something I could/would spend money on. For those without, TitanFall and PvZGW are fantastic and well worth the money, if you're looking for multiplayer shooters that don't get old.
hallben
Yep, I agree. But utterly pointless.

I would totally go for that mate and no, Deluxe aint worth it for the regulars sane types.
Indeed - I bought it :lol: (nice armour and weapon, though)
