So, the big day is over and Christmas has passed us by for another year. Before we slump into our seats and feast on the remaining festive goodies left in the cupboard, let’s take a look at the best and worst of the bargains that can be had in the Xbox Live Deals with Gold sale for 27th Dec 2016 – 2nd Jan 2017.
Grab – Artifex Mundi Essential Bundle – 30% off – £11.19
Whilst not many people have been immediately drawn to the classic titles on offer from Artifex Mundi, those that have will agree that these games offer some classic stories that are woven into each and every classic point and click adventure.
This Essential bundle includes three great titles with Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek, Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride and Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart included. Each of these offer engaging gameplay and are perfect for a relaxing evening by yourself as you try to get over that stuffed feeling you’ve had sitting around for the last few days.
Three titles for the price of one is definitely a great deal. Don’t miss it.
Grab – Dragon Age Inquisition: Game of the Year Edition – 70% off – £7.50
Although Dragon Age Inquisition is without doubt a great game, I wouldn’t usually recommend anything that can be obtained in a subscription service for a much cheaper price. But despite its inclusion in the incredibly cheap EA Access Vault, Dragon Age Inquisition: Game of the Year Edition comes packed with all the DLC content available for the game.
With some of the best expansions available on Xbox coming from the Dragon Age series, who can argue with £7.50 for all of the content and the game as well – Definitely grab it as soon as you can.
Leave – Need For Speed – 60% off – £16.00
With my previous statement, it should be no surprise that I am here to tell you that this one is definitely no bargain. Sure, Need For Speed may be one of the years Triple-A titles, but this is another game that can be found inside the EA Access Vault.
For just £20 pounds you can gain access to the full game as well as many other top quality titles for a whole year, which is more than enough time to finish the rather lacklustre content this game has to offer several times over.
Leave – Farming Simulator 17 – 25% off – £29.99
Only a couple of weeks ago I was telling you that Farming Simulator 16 was certainly no game to be spending your hard earned dough on as it, especially with a new title already out. But this week we’re here to warn you again, as whilst this is indeed the latest offering of Farming Simulator, it is once more a poor showing and not one to be spending just under 30 pounds on at any time of the year.
With several bugs and a lack of content on show throughout, there are much better things to be spending your money on rather than Farming Simulator 17. The Xbox Countdown Sale is still only in its first week, so we recommend you wait for a better deal to come your way before splashing out to become a virtual farmer.
So, there we have it, the best and worst bargains of the week, do you agree with our choices? If any of our picks have taken your fancy, head on over to the Xbox Live Store. But before you do, don’t forget to head on over to CDKeys in order to ensure your money spreads that little further with some super cheap Xbox Live credit.
