Writing about this month’s ID@Xbox theme sale was tough. I would like the copy I wrote at first and then I didn’t and then I did again… it comes in waves. Sorry, I broke the seal and started fishing for an easy pun, but I otter quit before I lose all sense of porpoise.
All joking aside, the ID@Xbox team realized that we have some absolutely fantastic marine-themed games and figured there was no better way to dive into the fall than to put some of these underwater treasures on sale. From now through October 5, you can save up to 67% on 50 beautiful aquatic-themed games. Get your fishing rod ready, clean up that snorkel gear, and hop on the couch to play some of these award-finning games! Alright I’m done.
