Another week, and I find it difficult to refuse XBLA titles others on this thread recommend priced at 200MSP or less. The Sales and Specials + app added 3 more titles to the backlog (and believe me, I am working on it as much as I can). Double Fine has made quality titles I enjoyed and it's great their offerings are on sale again for those who missed them before. While I know Brütal Legend
is an EA published title, the Double Fine sale could have included me if the DLC for that title went for a discount. However, the Psychonauts
rights are returned to Double Fine, and that too would have made me consider double dipping for a digital copy in addition to a physical copy had it gotten the 50% off treatment from the Double Fine sale. It doesn't happen often enough, when a DLC add-on for a XBLA title goes on a discount, but at this time I am holding back the urge to purchase the Toy Soldier items because of where I am hung up on the first title (and my conclusion that they are not for me). The sooner the day ends, the more likely I will not purchase ^^. At least I still refuse the new and improved busy-work of World of Keflings
from the original busy-work of Kingdom for (along with The Splatters
and Renegade Ops
) until they see the similar 200MSP or less pricepoint ^^.

Or how about a new Scorched Earth? I could totally go for that!
That is why I still wait on XBLA Death Tank
to get a significant discount (not down to 800MSP from 1200MSP). Death Tank, if memory serves me, was a bonus game included with the Duke Nukem 3D
port on the Sega Saturn (I am not sure, because I never had that game) and was the surprise quality portion in the package. EDIT: My information is slightly off, the 7-player Death Tank Zwei
was included with Duke 3D and Death Tank
was included with Sega Saturn's PowerSlave
, wish I just looked it up on Wikipedia
before I started typing -_-.
I loved Scorched Earth
, from all the way back in the DOS days. I too could go for that as well. Perhaps somewhere on the Indie Channel there is an alternative which is similar, because that is not a bad idea and there were a few alternatives which appeared on computers back then too. Or that could just be wishful thinking, if only my programming skills were better and/or I get un-lazy, it sounds like a worthwhile project if it doesn't exist.
Yes! In my opinion, the Vampire series had the best stable of character designs in a Capcom game or it could be the concept which entices me. Although I am glad they chose the latter two titles in the series, because Vampire Hunter
) and Vampire Savior
) have enough distinct differentiated elements in play mechanics between one another, but I seriously hope they don't just port the arcade code for the two games.
I hope they take the effort in combining the various editions of the two arcade titles and creating a definitive version, as they did with the Sega Saturn/Playstation/PSP versions of Vampire Savior
[allowing Bulletta(B.B.Hood)/Lilith Aensland/Queen Bee to co-exist with Phobos(Huitzil)/Pyron/Donovan/Gallon(John Talbain) and the secret characters] but with arcade accurate gameplay. I also would like if there were options to choose things like character names (toggle between Aulbath/Rikuo and Zabel/Lord Raptor for example) along with choices to which color palette set for the stages amongst the various editions (Vampire Savior 2
and Vampire Hunter 2
to the Vampire Savior
set of stages, even a choice between original Vampire
to Vampire Hunter
colored stages). Knowing how Street Fighter 3: Third Strike - Fight For the Future
on XBLA was handled, I would suppose all the character color palettes and stage color palettes were just paid DLC, and that is why I am a bit disappointed that the base price is 1200MSP; similar to the overpricing of XBLA JoJo's Bizzare Adventure
and Marvel Vs. Capcom Origins
which makes me wait on a discounted price.

Exactly why I believe the DLC for those games see more sales more often on our dashboards -_-. I've seen this also done for Borderlands
titles. Even Microsoft published series like Halo, Gears, Fable, and Forza has a greater likelihood. I expect to see Dead Island
DLC see more sales in the future by the same logic. Granted the titles are popular, so the sales would appeal to a larger population. I wait on GOTY/complete editions all the time and I'm typically rewarded for my patience, yet sometimes it backfires as I am now caught to waiting on another Dragon Age 2
DLC sale and may choose to switch consoles to play the compilation set of Mass Effect series because of included DLC.
I am sure everyone else enjoyed redeeming their Bing points for a $5 amazon gift card, then applying the SQRLUVIO code to get $2 off a 400MSP code bought by the same gift card. It is like the joy of "watching this on my television, while hooked into my mobile device, which is being controlled by my tablet device, which is hooked into my oven, all while sitting in my refrigerator." That joy in savings, could go towards Metro 2033
at 800MSP tomorrow which matches up quite well with its corresponding DLC that was on sale a couple weeks ago. I hope more information is revealed about tomorrow's Deal of the Week and hopefully a nice side sale as well soon to make me a happy refrigerator-sitting CAG.
