Which of this week’s Xbox Live Deals With Gold bargains should you pick up? – 25th August 2015

The latest Xbox Live Deals With Gold sale is now in place, but which are the best and worst deals on offer for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 gamers between the 25th-31st August 2015?

It must be said, the most recent sales have definitely been geared up much more towards the Xbox 360 owner than the Xbox One gamer. But don’t despair XO guys, this week sees a ton of discounted games coming your way!

And whilst the vast majority are pretty damn good, the following are the ones you should be keeping an eye on.

Grab – Stick it to the Man – $£2.11/3.30 (67% off) – Xbox OneReview

£2.11 for an Xbox One game? Why the hell are you still sitting here reading this…go and buy it right now!

But price aside, Stick It To The Man allows you to greet wacky, crazy and utterly bonkers characters throughout the three hours or so it’ll take for you to complete the physics based adventure.

Ray demands it!

Leave – Rory McIlroy PGA Tour – £36.84/$40.19 (33% off) – Xbox OneReview

If there were ever one stand out game that was going to be hit with our ‘Leave It’ tag, then Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is it.

In a week that is filled with stunning bargains, the £36.84 on offer for the latest EA golf title is near on laughable. Not only is it a game lacking features, but even if the price was discounted by a further 50%, we’d still be telling you to leave it only.

Wait until Rory hits the EA Access Vault for free.

Grab – Life is Strange (1-5) – £12.79/$15.99 (20% off) on Xbox One or Life is Strange (2-5) – £11.19/$13.59 (20% off) on Xbox 360Review

We’re big fans of episodic adventures and if you’d asked us six months back if anything could top Telltale Games’ Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us offerings and we’d probably have struggled to name one.

But Life is Strange is superb, with the story of Max and friends easily taking home the coveted ‘best episodic adventure’ title. DONTNOD Entertainment and Square Enix should be very proud of themselves and you should be getting involved right now. The price isn’t likely to get much cheaper in a hurry!

Grab – Roundabout – £6.00/$7.50 (50% off) – Xbox OneReview

Now, if you’re after something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, then Roundabout is the game for you.

Set as a 1970’s B-movie, you get tasked with helping Georgio Manos navigate a revolving limousine around a funny, humerous world full of unique, but utterly crazy characters.

Like many current Xbox One digital only titles, it’s all over a little bit too quickly but with 50% currently off the price, is something that you just have to experience.

It’s all a bit nuts!

Grab – Ziggurat – £6.00/$7.50 (50% off)Review

We’d have liked another quid or so taken off, but £6.00 for a pretty unique dungeon crawler is a good price.

Levels may eventually become a little samey and the campaign could well be completed in a couple of hours, but Ziggurat brings a explorative first person shooting affair that is well worth a shot. You can check out our full review of Ziggurat right here, but for the price, take a punt!

About The Author
Neil Watton (neil363)
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.
