Which of this week’s Xbox Live Deals With Gold bargains should you pick up? – 19th Apr 2016

So, fancy picking up a bargain in this week’s Xbox Live Deals With Gold sale but aren’t sure which to buy? Let us take you through the best and worst of the sale deals in place for the 19th – 25th April 2016.

Yet again, in what is fast becoming a bit of a weekly theme, the deals on the table with the Xbox Live Deals With Gold sale are a bit disappointing. Whilst there are only so many games available to be discounted, it’s a shame we’re seeing the same old ones dropped in price time and time again. With that in mind, we reckon you should be checking out, and avoiding, the following…

Grab – Never Alone Arctic Collection – £3.80/$4.75 – 75% off

If you haven’t played Never Alone, then you really are missing out on a brilliant bit of story telling. Admittedly it doesn’t quite reach the heights that we were really hoping of it (but hey, what ever does), but Never Alone drags you in, tells you a tale and lets you go on your merry way, ensuring that you have learnt something in the process.

The platforming puzzler should be something that is on each and every Xbox One gamers lists and for just a few quid is well worth a shot – particularly as the Arctic Collection brings in the added content as well.

All in all, it’s a bit of a bargain!

Grab – Infinity Runner – £2.80/$3.50 – 50% off

We like to big up the small games whenever we can and Infinity Runner of Xbox One is most definitely one of those.

It won’t take you long to complete, but should you be looking for a sci-fi themed fast paced runner, then Infinity Runner does exactly as it’s name suggests. Well, at least the running bit anyways. It may have a few sloppy issues, but for £2.80 will bring you a couple of hours of pretty tense fun. And that’s  all we can ask for really!

Grab – DuckTales Remastered – £2.99

Again Xbox 360 owners are left with little option but to pick at the pieces. Thankfully, this week sees the reduction in price of DuckTales Remastered. It ain’t all bad you know!

Telling the tale of Scrooge McDuck and his nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie in platform fashion, nothing that you find within the Remastered version of DuckTales will have you gasping in amazement, but similarly, nothing will see you wondering why on earth Scrooge and co were reborn on console. In fact, for the few hours it contains, it is a fairly enjoyable little playthrough.

You should be happy to spend the £2.99 just for the theme tune. Woo-oo!

Leave – Farming Simulator 15 – £15.00/$20.00 – 60% off

Now, if you live on a farm and manage to find a bit of spare time in between mucking out the horses and counting the chickens to play a video game, chance are you won’t want to relive your every day life with the gaming equivalent. That means farmers are ruled out of action when it comes to Farming Simulator 15 – now, why on earth would anyone else want to play it?

We’re not sure actually and with a game that is visually behind the times, mundane, repetitive and nothing short of unexciting, chances are no-one else will want to learn the way of farm life either.

Which means the £15 being asked for Farming Simulator 15 on Xbox One is quite probably £15 too much. Hell, it would even struggle to excite the masses if it were given away as a Games With Gold title!

So, another week and very few bargains really worth worrying about. If you want to check out the full listing, then you can find the full Xbox Live Deals With Gold sale right here. If you want to save even more money, head over to CDKeys and pick up some super cheap Xbox Live credit first.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One. A massive racing fan, Forza 4 was the daddy of all Xbox titles but Forza Horizon 3 now trumps that. Online first person shooters are my hell....probably because my reactions are so poor, but give me a little Indie title and I'll be in heaven. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.

    I have all three of your recommendations and totally agree. They are all pretty darn good!

    • Glad we agree. Just steer away from the farm and all should be good!
