It’s time for another Xbox Live Deals With Gold sale to hit the headlines, but with the huge amount of deals in place with last week’s Xbox Ultimate Game Sale, it’s a bit of a sparse offering this time round. There are however still a couple of games you should be tempted in by…and a few which should be well ignored.
Stick with us as we tell you about the best and the worst of the Xbox Live Deals With Gold sale for 12th-18th July 2016.
Grab – Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut Xbox One Game 67% – £2.64 – Xbox One
For a couple of quid, we can’t see any reason why you shouldn’t be downloading Q.U.B.E. right now.
A very impressive puzzler that does things slightly differently to the norm, Q.U.B.E brings some glorious visuals, an intriguing story and some well worked puzzles that will ensure your mind keeps ticking over.
The best thing about it though is that the line between enjoyment and frustration isn’t crossed too often, bringing you a puzzle game that is more than doable and won’t have you crying into your Youtube walkthroughs too often. Go and buy it now.
Tempter – Flockers Xbox One Game 75% – £5.00 – Xbox One
Now, this week is quite obviously Team17 week where the Deals With Gold bargains are concerned. And for that reason alone you should be checking out Flockers. Or at least being tempted in to a purchase.
Putting you on the ‘other side of the fence’, you need to help numerous sheep escape the menacing weapons factories that have been created by those horrible Worms. Playing out much like a modern day Lemmings, Flockers comes with a ton of replayability, some wacky designs and enough puzzles to shake a stick at.
The £5 on offer therefore represents decent value for money, and whilst we would have been telling you to snap it up if it were a quid or two cheaper, is well worth thinking about.
Leave – Need for Speed Xbox One Game 67% – £13.20 – Xbox One
If ever there was a case of terrible timing, this deal is it. Need For Speed on Xbox One is well worth the £13.20 that it is currently discounted to. Or at it would be well worth it if it hadn’t just arrived in the EA Access Vault as a free title.
Granted, you’ll need an EA Access pass in order to download it for free, but when that comes in at £20 for the entire year, and brings numerous other goodies with it at the same time, then it’s a bit of a no-brainer which option you should choose. It certainly isn’t the option which sees you buying Need For Speed individually.
So that’s about it for another week. Whilst the 360 deals are neither here nor there, at least there’s something for Xbox One owners to get a little excited about.
If you want to check out the full deals for the week, then you can find the full Xbox Live Deals With Gold and Spotlight sale for this week right here.
As always, if you do decide to grab something, we’d love it if you could tell us what you pick up in the comments below. You may wish to save even more cash as well, and heading on over to CDKeys and picking up some cheap Xbox Live credit first should be pretty high on your agenda.
