Bargains from the latest Xbox sales
Luke – Mr. Driller DrillLand
I thoroughly played Mr. Driller DrillLand on GameCube, and seeing the remaster drop to its lowest price at 70% off this week was just the boost I needed to pick it up and get lost in it. nonsense again. . This great little package is Mr. Driller with a twist – it’s a bunch of neat variations on the traditional formula, each with their own theme and mechanics. An Indiana Jones-style mode introduces rolling boulders, spike traps, and treasure to collect; a spooky variant sees you clear haunted blocks and then destroy them to defeat the ghosts; an RPG mode adds all manner of consumable items, a branching map, and boss fights; the space scene adds cosmic dangers and an assortment of crazy bonuses. It’s really cool to see the twisted classic mechanics in these weird but nice new versions, and there’s of course a traditional version of the game on offer as well.
It’s all laid out like a boring theme park, and there’s a lot of extra stuff around the main modes in terms of collectibles to find, earn, and buy as you work your way through the increasingly difficult levels of each attraction. it gets hard quick so, and the achievements of Mr. Driller DrillLand are absolutely brutal. No Everest for the Wicked asks you to dig 8,848 meters in classic mode, in a single run, with three lives and no way to get more – for context, ‘hard’ mode is only 1,500 meters and even that’s a challenge, which would explain why literally no one on Xbox has managed to unlock this yet. Beware of the finalists, then, but DrillLand is a fun time if you don’t care about a few borderline impossible achievements…or maybe even if you want to be the first to unlock them!

Sean – Control the Ultimate Edition
If you haven’t played Control yet, first of all, what do you do? Second, buy it this second because Control: Ultimate Edition of the game, which includes both expansions, is only $15.99 / £13.99 / €15.99. In Control, you play as Jesse Faden, the new director of a New York secret agency overrun by a supernatural threat. In search of answers, you will explore the oldest house to find the source of the threat and uncover the building’s secrets. Aside from the thrilling combat, what I love most about Control is the overall atmosphere that Remedy manages to imbue throughout the game. The brutalist architecture, supernatural elements, and quiet offices make it a unique experience. Add to that an engaging story and powers that allow Jesse to levitate and launch enemies at will, and you’ve got a winner here, my friends. I don’t want to say too much about Control because I don’t want to spoil it – it’s one of those games that you should blindly discover and experience for yourself. Sadly, I can’t speak to the expansions as I haven’t played them yet, but I know on good authority that both are pretty darn good, especially if you’re an Alan Wake fan.
Control the Ultimate Edition

Only you have the power to stop it. The world is now your weapon
in an epic fight to annihilate a disturbing foe through deep and
unpredictable environments. Containment has failed, humanity is
game. Will you regain control?
Tom – Just die already
Ordinarily, I wouldn’t condone the use of violence against OAPs, but in the case of the motley bunch you find in Just Die Already, I’m happy to make an exception. All you need to know is that this is a physics-based sandbox game that lets you put its elders in hell on earth before they reach the pearly gates …I mean a nursing home. Whether you want to strap rockets to their feet, have their lower halves eaten by piranhas, electrocute them, dismember them, or any other imaginative way to torment them, this game gives you the tools to do it. Don’t worry, though; Unlike us fragile beings, the elders you find here will reappear as if nothing had happened—even if their heads had detached from their bodies seconds earlier.
While it probably won’t win any awards for being the most emotional game you’ve played this week, I think the level of mayhem you can cause when working on the Just Die Already achievements is well worth the price you’ll pay with it. the current reduction of 55%. Check out our Just Die Already review to see just how crazy you can expect!
