Here’s a quick update on this week’s Xbox Deals with Gold and Spotlight sales.
There’s a modest crop of new savings on the Xbox digital games store, most likely due to the ongoing Black Friday sale, which ends on Thursday. Nonetheless, this week’s Xbox Deals with Gold lineup features some cool games that span the console generations.
Highlights include IO Interactive’s Hitman 2, Villa Gorilla’s excellent pinball platformer Yoku’s Island Express, and Watch Dogs 2, a game that is much better than we expected and much more fun than Watch Dog: Legion. We’re also strangely tempted to revisit the original Assassin’s Creed to see how far the series has travelled in 13 years.
We can’t vouch for any of the games included in this week’s Spotlight sale, but we’ve heard positive things about Cat Quest II. We heard that if you like cats, and quests, and doing things a second time, it’s the game for you.
Every game is playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, and discounted through to December 7, 2020. Here’s the full lineup.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
