The Witcher 2, Dark Souls, & Batman Arkham in Xbox Deals with Gold


Microsoft's Xbox Deals with Gold this week offer up some big name games including Dark Souls, The Witcher 2, Mortal Kombat, and more.

Whilst last week saw an Ubisoft Publisher sale in the Xbox Deals with Gold, this week we're offered up a bunch of Warner Bros. titles, along with Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and the Dark Souls games.

Sometimes with these sales I struggle to offer any recommendations on which games to pick up, as I've either not played any of the games or some of them may just not be worth your time and money, regardless of the discount. This week it's much easier, there's plenty to recommend.

First off on Xbox 360 we've got the Dark Souls games, an absolute must buy/try for any fan of action titles. They're not your usual brawlers however, so be cautious when venturing through their dark worlds as you will die. It's been said by many, but it's true, just make sure to learn from your deaths.

The Batman Arkham games are a must for any Batman fan. The games look great, and the slick combat sets a high standard for the way other games should tackle their own combat systems.

We've also got Mortal Kombat, the reboot of the series from 2011. This game brought back the Mortal Kombat universe from an otherwise long and less-than-great bout of poor games. I'd highly recommend Injustice: Gods Among Us too, it uses similar mechanics from the Mortal Kombat reboot, but all in a DC universe - it's excellent.

Oh, and don't forget to pick up The Witcher 2 - become a mutant monster hunter? 'Nuff said. Wow, so many recommendations this week.
