A new crop of games receive digital discounts in this week’s Xbox One Deals with Gold and Spotlight sales.
It’s a reasonably quiet week for gaming bargains on the Xbox One, but there are a few titles we can recommend.
This week’s Deal with Gold lineup includes half-price discounts on a trio of NeoGeo classics. Metal Slug 4 is always a thrill, but the original Samurai Shodown is our pick.
Cities: Skylines, the wonderful city building sim from Colossal Order is also recommended. In our review of the PlayStation 4 edition, we said it updated a classic design template “with considerable style.” The game is well worth picking up with a 75% price cut.
We also liked Redout when it came to PS4, calling the game “a fluid rush, and a thrill to control.” With 67% slashed from its usual retail price, it’s a must buy.
This week’s Spotlight Sale highlights include big discounts for The Count Lucanor, Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure and Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles.
The latest Xbox One promotions run through to November 18 on the Xbox Digital Games store and Microsoft online store. Here’s the complete list of discounted games.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
