Why are they so bad?


They are very uninspired and the humor (which is a big part of the game) was flat. The only funny part I found was the horsless-headman bit. That's it. The new characters are not appealing, the new buildings are confusing, and the game mechanics have not changed -not that they need to.
To give you an idea how bland they are: I have played this game every week for the past 8 months or so. I play the main story every week. I have not bothered playing the dlc again after I finished it, and really couldn't wait to get done with it the first time around.

Am I the only one that can't get into Castle Crashers? It's a genre I like but I recall the controls feeling too clunky/stiff. Does the Xbox version do anything different from the PS3 version?


No, you're not the only one.

As for this Rewards promo going on, MS sure made it as confusing as possible. The number of people on here and the Rewards thread that don't understand exactly what to do is really high.

Also, fixed the bad ilomilo link in the OP.

The only thing that wasn't clear to me was if add-ons for XBLA games counted towards the 3,200 spent (especially since they mentioned the Walking Dead). Otherwise, I understood it for the most part. Play 20 hours worth of XBLA games (any combination), each punch showing 5 hours of play. Buy 4 games priced 400 MSP or more, 1 punch = 1 game. Then 3,200 total spent on XBLA games (something like 400 + 400 counts), with 800 spent = 1 punch.

My plan is to just get 4 XBLA games at 800 each. Covers two of the punch cards at once, which just leaves the 20 hours, & I'm sure I've hit 10 hours by now. It's just the fact that it takes a couple of days to update that might be a bit confusing.

I've heard Mark of the ninja is awesome but not much on Deadlight. Serious question. I assumed MotN but Deadlight at least looks interesting, not sure how it plays.

I've played about 20 minutes of each so I am not going to give you my personal opinion.
However, the last few days a TON of people here weighed in on both games, that's why I was asking if you were being serious. The vast majority of people here think that MoTN is awesome. The vast majority of people here also think that Deadlight is a pile of crap. So there you go. :)

Deadlight is a 3-4 hour game that I got bored of after the first 1/3 or so. It has some interesting ideas but loses steam quickly. It's slow, which isn't necessarily a problem, but begins to feel tedious after that first 1/3. It was like they didn't know what they wanted to do after that or didn't have time to flesh it out more.

Mark of the Ninja gives you a ton of stuff to do, reasons to go back and play it again, and every part of it feels really well designed. I think my first time through took me about 8 hours. I got every achievement after about 15. I stopped playing and finally moved on to something else after 20. It's excellent.

Just finished the demo for Mark of the Ninja. You guys are right; this is a good game. Ok, I lied I didn't finish the demo. I stopped halfway to purchase it. :)

Would any of you recommend Guardian Heroes or Special Forces: Team X?

Am I the only one that can't get into Castle Crashers? It's a genre I like but I recall the controls feeling too clunky/stiff. Does the Xbox version do anything different from the PS3 version?


I would very much recommend Guardian Heroes. I love that game, played it a lot with my buddy on the Saturn. If you get it, don't play it on easy, since you don't unlock anything. :)

Double Dragon II is nightmarishly bad.



I call it - this year's AMY, hell even that game is more playable than DD II.
It runs with sub 20fps all the time, controls are unresponsive and on top of that every enemy attacks at the same time. Plain, plain bad.

Did anyone saw desctiption of this game on XBL:

''This is a remake “Double Dragon II” a 80’s game. The story line takes same as original game story. However, the graphic, character, action, system etc. are change. Also we are including new stage and enemy in the game. The player will be addicted to new version of Double Dragon II. Also, characters are undressed from 80’s style, and recreated with modern sexy and beautiful style that amaze you and feel never been experienced world before.''

I didn't think Deadlight was as bad as people are making it out to be, but I only paid $2 for the Steam copy and had fairly low expectations going in. I would say the game's length was just right at 4.5 hours. My biggest gripe was the inconsistent controls. At times it seemed a bit random whether you would make a jump or fail. Also, it was often difficult to distinguish between platforms you could land on and background elements. This made some of the sections more difficult than they needed to be. The story was forgettable, but I enjoyed my time with it all in all. Would only recommend it at 400 points or less though.

Dust was a decent enough game, but I can't agree with all the praise it's getting on here. My initial impression was positive until I realized the metroidvania elements were half baked. The game plays more like a beatem up, and there's nothing wrong with that as I love beat em ups. The problem is the game is fairly lengthy (8-10 hours) and there's just not enough new gameplay mechanics introduced over its course to keep things interesting. It became very repetitive for me about half way in. Didn't really help that the art style/voice acting/story did absolutely nothing for me.

Mark of the Ninja is fantastic and easily one of the best games on the XBLA platform.

A little heads up: for those who didn't catch it during the Russian/Chinese marketplace craze, seems that Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale has gone FREE again, this time for Indian Marketplace.

The game is a pretty boring dungeon romp, slightly more fun in co-op, but hey... FREE is FREE, right? 8-)

Thanks for the heads-up. Strangely enough, it's displaying as Free on the Buy button when I'm logged in with my U.S. account, but after I click the Buy button and get the option to Confirm the purchase, it tries to charge me 800 MSP. Just a warning.

I have to be honest. I did not believe you and went to check out the description myself. ;)

It all makes sense to me now though. The publisher (and possibly developer) are Korean, so they were probably playing Starcraft 2 while programming the game and typing the description. I am really more shocked that they didn't accidentally type the words "Zerg" or "Protoss" in there.

I actually really liked Deadlight. The art direction and theme in that game was great. I played it primarily for the story, but the combat (finishing zombies off in particular could be really satisfying at times) and gameplay were pretty solid too. Probably my favorite Summer of Arcade game from the bunch.

I checked to see who the developer was (Gravity) & it turns out they did that MMO Ragnarok.

The developer, Cyber Front, seems to have some different divisions (they published some random games in Japan, the latest being Skullgirls. They published Zombie Driver HD in the US), though the one that did this game was Korean.
