First price drop of this well reviewed puzzler.

Debating whether to buy now, or hope it goes to half-price before or after Christmas.

Here's Limmy playing it youtube.com/wat…8Pk He doesn't enjoy it that much.

EDIT: Bought for £13.40 using Brazilian MS Store, OffGamers for BRL$60 credit £12.86+ 56p Paypal fee

Just still seems very expensive without a physical edition. Maybe I am tight/spoilt but I spat my coffee out when I saw this and Kerbal launching for £32.99.

Digital prices are ridiculous, physical copies all the way for me!

Only time I go digital is the free games with gold or when then are really really cheap

​you need a game sharing buddy digital works out far cheaper for me on most occasions.

Been waiting for this to drop, £12.08 from Brazil Marketplace, 52.93 Brazilian real for those who buy from different stores

I had that mentality but my laziness took over is so much easier to just install from cloud rather have to get up and find the disc.

Been waiting for this to drop since release! Thanks!

What's the catch/issue with doing this? I got a free Game with Gold from the German store and that worked fine. DO I need to change location in settings anywhere, etc?

I need to check the Singapore store as I have credit left

There is no catch or issues as far as I am aware, I have been doing it for well over a year and saved a fortune, this thread explains all you need to know - http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/xbox-one-buying-from-other-regions-without-a-vpn-virtual-private-network-2452608?utm_source=Thread%2BSubscription&utm_medium=email&utm_content=2452608&utm_campaign=Comment%2BUpdate

...the first comment explains all

I just bought my Brazil credit from Offgamers, they do 30 BRL for £6.42 at the moment on a promo, can pay with Paypal (0.50p charge) - https://www.offgamers.com/buynow/brl30-xbox-live-gift-card-br-discount-promotion.html

You may need to set up a Brazilian address as its the first time you have made a purchase on that region, but after that you can just add gift cards as and when you buy them, remember also that now you have to click to the game page on Xbox store what you want to buy, change region at bottom left to Brazil (or whatever region you are buying from), then click to buy the game and hit the redeem gift card button, insert your code and this then adds the credit to your account, then just purchase the game as normal using your credit

Looking for some help if you're willing:

I've purchased the r$60 gift cards from OffGamers. Now I need to redeem them. ANy redeem code link goes to the same URL. account.microsoft.com/bil…eem the "change store" function at the bottom of the screen is a "change language" button here. Entering the code gives this error (In portugese: This code is valid for BRL only. It is transferable. Therefore, you can give it to someone you know where that currency is used.) I have added a Brazilian state and zip on my BR-Personal account on Microsoft. ANy ideas?

EDIT: Alright, Srted it, there was a link underneath that error text I mentioned saying "Click here to change your region." I had to do that then it allowed me to redeem. Game purchased, hopefully downloading, hopefully won;t have messed any account stuff up. Result. £13.40 spent and have BRL7.07 left.

Nice one! I was about to ask how you got on, remember when redeeming the codes go to the game you are buying's page and click to buy it, when the window pops up asking what method of payment you want to use, there should be a button to redeem a gift card, or if you have some leftover credit as you do now, click on the "Microsoft account balance" button and you will see a gift card button, enter the code and it should redeem no problems

​Failing any of that you can still change region on your xbox one console and enter the code as you would on the uk store and buy and download the game before swapping back to the UK, sometimes it gives me an error the first time i enter a code but just hit enter (A) again and never had an issue redeeming that way whenever i'm buying from brazil i always tend to buy more brazilreal than i need then i can have a little shop in brazil, its the best for mini games 9 out of 10 are cheapest in brazil or only pennys in difference from the cheapest region.

Just watched a few videos. Is it literally just walk from one maze puzzle to the next for the entire game? That's how it looks :\

I've got Rock Band DLC in mind for the dregs, looks like the equivalent of £1 a song, BRL4. (90p actually seeing as I got BRL60 for £13.40)

You my friend appear to now have the bug... this is how it starts

for any future purchases, check out xbox-store-checker.com/en/ and switch the currency at top right of page to £, then you can search for games and DLC and it will tell you the region whats cheapest

That's exactly what it is. I absolutely hated it.

I loved the look of this game but in practice it bored the pants of me. It looks lovely and all that but all it boils down to is a load of trace the line puzzles that get more and more infuriating until you can't get any further.

I'm sure puzzle fans love the challenge but it just frustrated me.

I loved this game so very much. I bought it at release..didn't really care how much it cost.

I might revisit it actually, it's so beautiful, clever and captivating. Really fun to explore the world, and it makes you feel quite smart when you figure things out, (the sign of a wonderful puzzle game). Took my breath away quite a number of times. Braid was also quite a masterpiece.

Definitely buy this if you're into puzzle/creative/artistic games such as limbo, the swapper, inside, talos principle etc.
