Here are this week’s games and add-on deals on the Xbox Games Store. Discounts are valid now through 14 January 2018. A few titles to point out

Not a great week to be honest, but hopefully things will pick up as the year goes on.

Nothing for me in this one, as a side note, I finally picked up Elite Dangerous and Witcher 3 in the Xmas sales. I've not managed to touch Witcher 3 yet and only a small amount of time on Elite Dangerous.

 

ED is a much more complex game then I had ever imagined, the controls are a little clunky and the game is very open in terms of what there is to do, you're dumped very much in at the deep end. I think it's still too early to form a true opinion but I haven't been put off just yet.

Ah you finally did it! I know we were having a back and forth last year about buying it or not.

 

I think I played a demo or during a free play weekend and I thought the same thing, which didn't put me off, but made me think twice about buying. Knowing that I'd have to sink a considerable amount of time into it. 

 

Funnily enough, I participated in a secret santa on Imgur this year and was sent the GOTY Edition of The Witcher 3.

NICE! I've still not started it, I'm in no real rush to play it but I'm looking forward to it.

 

I've not really played anything since the new year to be honest, nasty cold has just left me a little tired in the evenings but the amount of time I think I will need to make any progress in ED is actually a little scary. One mission probably took me 30 minutes once I had the hang of things and it was basically a commodity run (cargo bay was too small to hold everything I needed) and that netted me around 100K credits. With the most expensive ship being around 150 Million, I've got a long way to go before I'm anywhere near that stuff.

I did wanna play Witcher 2 first, but from what I've read it's not as accessible as 3 so may be put off by that. 

 

Yeah there's definitely something going around, over the last few weeks, family and colleagues have all dropped off with a bug of sorts. I will try ED, at some point lol

Game Pass is actually starting to get so good it's annoying. I don't have the time for all these games!

Yeah I've been toying with the idea for a while. Currently CD Keys have a 12 month pass for around 46, which works about £4 a month. Just need to drink one less pint a month 😛

 

But I don't have any time :( I'll probably buy a pass when Crackdown launches, because that is one game that I want to try.

Far Cry 5 for that price is very tempting, I enjoyed 4, and like the open world time killer games like that.  I think I spent 40'ish hours on FC4, but right now I'm in the middle of Shadow of the Tomb Raider so I have to finish that first before I start something else.  Also have Sniper 4, which I forgot about till I saw it in my games list, heh.

Yet again GTAV on sale, for the 1,000th time I'm sure.     I really need to finish up on a few things.   Anyone of you interested in Anthem at all?  If it's how I heard, that each players "hub" is their own and only the missions are drop-in/out MP, meaning you can play the game like single player even though the "world" is shared, it makes me more interested. 

 

I've grown tired of all these co-op forcing online games of late, I'm a single player gamer for life.  If I want some MP, then I'd jump into MP but I got into games for the interactive narrative gameplay, that's not going to change.

I'll be buying it asap.  Haven't been playing much lately outside of Destiny 2 so it'll be good to have more stuff.

 

Generally I prefer SP, but coop is excellent when you actually have friends that want to play regularly.

My funky work schedule is a the problem with coop for me, it's always in flux so I don't know when I can play.

Think is the probably the cheapest it's been. Rockstar will have moved over to RDR now.

 

I managed to get into the Closed Alpha for Anthem and despite a few big bugs, what I managed to play was enjoyable. It's pretty much like any shooter though. Accept mission > go to location > collect items/defend point/beat big boss etc > collect loot to update character/weapons > be able to tackle more difficult missions.

 

I feel like you can play through most of these sort of games solo. Like The Division or Destiny, it's just that you're not able to take on the more difficult missions which means the loot that you get is probably not as good, but if you're not playing PvP or co-op, you're probably not too bothered.
