Are you feeling the love today? No? Fear not because while there will be plenty off spending their time convincing themselves they can be romantic, those left behind will have plenty to keep occupied with too. But if you’re looking for something a little cheaper than the horde of titles that crashed their way on to the Xbox Games Store this morning a good place to look would be amongst the fresh batch of discounts available in the latest Xbox Live Deals With Gold sale – to save you the heartache of which one to choose, here are our picks of best and worst of those available between the 14th-20th Feb 2017.
Grab – Sebastien Loeb Rally EVO – 75% off – £7.50
We’re going to jump straight in here with an obvious choice. There may well have been more Rally games last year than we can even remember, and even though the spotlight may well have been taken by the excellent DiRT Rally, that doesn’t mean that the others were anything to shrug your shoulders at.
Sebastien Loeb Rally EVO was one of those other games and as one of the people who jumped in on launch day, I can comfortably say this is one hell of a decent effort. With simulation settings catered for elsewhere, those not quite possessing the skills of a blindfolded Ken Block will certainly feel comfortable with the more arcade style approach that Sebastien Loeb Rally brings.
For less than eight quid, there is much worse you could be wasting your money on. Like, um, flowers for instance…who buys those?
Grab – The Final Station – 50% off – £6.00
In a world filled with an infected populace, on a train to an unknown destination, who would you trust? Do you save the stranded survivors begging to come aboard or do you leave them to perish at the hands of the infected? Supplies will only stretch so far and survivors could become more hassle than they are worth. Go it alone though and you may not make it to that final station.
The Final Station may be one of the more under-appreciated games to arrive on Xbox One, but it doesn’t mean it’s not worth your time or your cash and for just 6 quid, this is one title that you should certainly run to the store for.
Grab – Rocket League – 25% off – £11.99
If you’re that one person who hasn’t yet given the phenomenon that was Rocket League a blast, then I suggest you grab this right away.
As possibly the one and only individual who was left speechless that its predecessor Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars wasn’t given enough praise, the arrival of Rocket League was a blessing, and for you out those of you looking for a blast in the multiplayer games department, or those heading out onto the pitch solo, Rocket League may just be yours and everyone else’s game of the century.
Grab it now!
Leave – Overwatch: Origins Edition – 17% off – £45.64
No I haven’t gone completely crazy, and yes, I do realise that Overwatch has been a humongous hit with the gaming community since it usurped the first-person throne last year and booted Battleborn right in the acorns.
However, those of you reading this are interested in bargains and at forty-five quid Overwatch is hardly bargain of the week material.
Sure, it’s not a bad game and those of you willing to split with that hard-earned cash will certainly find yourselves pleased with the contents of Overwatch, however leaving all the previously mentioned games behind when you could grab them all for much cheaper is possibly the worst mistake you’ll make this year.
So, those are our choices for another week and with some pretty fantastic offers available you’d be wise to head on over to CDkeys if your hoping to nab them all to ensure your money stretches that little further with the super cheap Xbox Live credit.
Do you agree with our choices? Let us know in the comments below and via our usual social channels.. Don’t forget, if you’re looking for the whole Xbox Live Deals With Gold sale list for this week, then we’ve got them all detailed right here.
Definitely getting Seb Loeb Rally but thanks for bringing my attention to “The Final Station” too (just read your review of it) as I had never heard of this one before but it sounds terrific.
There are so many games appearing in the store these days that a lot of them just pass me by… wish they still had the old XBLA so I can find the indie games instead of them just vanishing into the ‘noise’…
Your welcome, there’s some fantastic indie titles available on Xbox One and they can be very easily missed when the releases are arriving one after the other.
If you ever find yourself looking for a new Indie title give us a shout, and we can be sure to send you in the direction of the best titles on the store 🙂
