With the amount of blockbuster games we’ve had released this year already, you could be forgiven for not paying too much attention to the weekly deals that have been pumped out recently. That said, if you’ve been diving into every exciting release, then you may find your wallet looking a little bare and rather thankful for some cheaper deals.
Either way the latest Xbox Live Deals With Gold and Spotlight sale is running between the 6th-12th June 2017, delivering even more Xbox One and Xbox 360 discounts. Here are our recommendations of the best and worst deals of the week.
Grab – Typoman – 50% off – £5.20
This little indie puzzler is a 2D platform adventure, in which players slip into the role of a character made of letters.
As you struggle through the dark and hostile world, you’ll need to craft and use words to alter your environment. Choose your words wisely however, as they can be either a blessing or a cure.
Typoman may not be your typical adventure, but it’s definitely an enjoyable one, and for little more than a fiver you could be listening to the distinct soundtracks of the land whilst solving some of the most beautiful and ingenious puzzles available.
Grab – King Oddball – 50% off – £2.00
So, if you’re a fan of the many adventures from 10tons then this one will hardly need an introduction. For just two quid, this is certainly a bargain you should be snapping up.
King Oddball is the perfect game for anyone looking for an Angry Birds replacement for only a mere fraction of the price. That said King Oddball isn’t just another copycat, and offers plenty of fun throughout with simplistic and one-more-go gameplay. We recommend you race to the store to grab this now. Not only because it’s dirt cheap, but because it’s good fun.
Grab – Ironcast – 67% – £3.30
This strategy adventure title brings turn based strategy, Match-3 mechanics, an alternate 1880’s history inspired by the steampunk genre and a beautiful hand painted art style.
Ironcast is a unique title that sees players take control of a 7 metre tall walking vehicle – an Ironcast – as you face off against an invading force of enemy Ironcasts in order to defend Victorian England. With full customisation for weapons and defensive capabilities, Ironcast is all about how you plan your attack, and for just £3.30, it could give you your next title that provides hours upon hours of enjoyment.
Leave – Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – Digital Pro Edition – 50% off – £45.00
Okay… I’ve blinked, cleared my eyes, moved closer to the TV and even refreshed the page, and I’m still seeing the same thing. £45. Are you serious!?!
Whilst I’m fully in agreement that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare wasn’t a bad title, especially if you buy each entry like I do, simply to enjoy the campaign offering, it goes without saying this is certainly not a price any of us expect to be seeing or paying several years after a game has released. Even more so when the extra content included is for a multiplayer offering that has lost a vast majority of its player base.
If you’re someone who has yet to dive into Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, we suggest you head down to your local games retailer to pick it up a much more sensibly priced option, rather than coughing up such digital prices as these. You’ll thank us for it later!
So, there we have it, another week of deals and our thoughts on just what you should and shouldn’t be adding to your collection. Do you agree with our choices? Let us know in the comments below or via our usual social channels, and don’t forget to head on over to CDkeys for some super cheap Xbox Live Credit to help spread the cash a little further this week.

Dear Lord, I think someone has been smoking something when they set that COD price!
