Unless you’re some super rich, multi-boat owning billionaire playboy sitting off the coast of Monaco, you’ll probably be looking to grab a bargain or two occasionally. And that is where the Xbox Live Deals With Gold sale comes in handy, delivering a multitude of Xbox games discounted to levels never before seen.
And yet again that sale is back with another batch of bargain basement games for us mere mortals to take a look at. But which are the best and which are the worst of the deals found in the Xbox Live Deals With Gold and Spotlight sale for 10th-16th July 2018? Let us take you through them.
Grab – Child of Light – 70% off – £3.60
You know those games which just draw you in from the very first second? Child of Light is one of those.
An absolute joy from the very start to the very finish, Child of Light is one of those few ‘must-players’.
Taking in the story of Aurora, a young Princess being raised by her father in Austria, it’ll be up to you to embark upon a quest which sees you attempting to restore the sun, the moon, and the stars which have been stolen by the evil Queen of the Night.
A role playing puzzle platformer, Child of Light not only comes with stunning gameplay mechanics, but the artstyle is a joy to behold, whilst the soundtrack will have you fully immersed into the wonderful world. For just £3.60, a purchase of Child of Light is ‘no-brainer of the week’.
Tempter – Rocksmith Remastered – 60% off – £16.00
It’s not very often we see the likes of Rocksmith put forward to the discount gods, but when it does, it shouldn’t be ignored.
Well, at least it shouldn’t be ignored if you have even the slightest inkling that a career of guitar strumming could be for you. See, Rocksmith promises to be the fastest way to learn guitar, and we pretty much agree with that statement, as this is a ‘game’ that most definitely sends you down the right path to rocking stardom.
It will obviously only appeal to a select few, and you’ll need your own proper guitar to hand – this is in no way one of those plastic band imitations – but should you be looking to learn the way of the strings, and want to learn in your own time, at your own pace, and in the comfort of your own home, there is nothing better.
What do you know, it may even be the start of something even more beautiful. Rocksmith 2018 around the corner perhaps? C’mon Ubisoft, make it happen!
Leave – Attack on Titan – 40% off – £26.99
There’s always one game that stands out in the Deals With Gold sale as being overpriced for what it is. This week, it is the turn of Attack on Titan.
Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s far away from being a bad game, but for something that originally released near on 2 years ago, and has since seen a sequel come to trump it in many ways, it just feels a bit strange to see a £26.99 price tag attached to Attack on Titan.
By all means get involved if you are a massive fan, or have played the sequel and missed out on this, but as a quick impulse purchase, you would have to be hugely mad to consider it. In fact, it’ll only really be when A.O.T. Wings of Freedom drops down to around half the price it currently is should we be talking about a proper purchase. Until then though, give it a miss.
Don’t forget, if you want to follow our words of wisdom and grab the games above, then you could do a ton worse than hit up the team at CDKeys beforehand. It takes mere minutes to purchase some of their cheap Xbox Live Credit and it’ll ensure that the prices seen above are lowered even more. Remember that multi-boat owning billionaire I spoke about at the top of this piece? Yeah, that ain’t us and so we try to save as much cash as it humanly possible.
