I guess I just won't read the OP. I can barely read it even if I try. So you are all on notice - nobody says to me, ever, "it's in the OP". ;)

 

Yeah, way too many different colored backgrounds.  Nothing differentiating XBLA, DLC and GoD, no need for gold backgrounds for DOTWs since they are always gold only.  And add me to the list of those wondering why a new thread was started now.

Xbox One will release Nov/22. Xbox One XBL's deals will continue under one XBL Deals thread (for the foreseeable future) so adopting CAG 3.0's style just makes the most sense. There was way more color in the previous thread's OP.

I will remove the bold around game links tonight.

Heads up on CastleStorm: It's actually supposed to be $4.99/50% off. Just tried to buy it on the console, where it still shows $2.49, and it wouldn't let me. So I bought it on xbox.com, where it still shows $2.49, and was billed $4.99.

 

So glad i bought it earlier today, it cost me only £1.68. :)

Colored yellow/gold and white text will not be readable for those with the white theme on CAG.

 

Perhaps just use neutral colors that work on both backgrounds?  Red, blue, green, etc.  That's just a LOT of highlighted text.

 

Appreciate the efforts to make things as useful as possible for all of us, though.

Was in for castlestorm but for five bucks, no thanks.

This. From the demo, the gameplay reminds me of Angry Birds with the occasional side scrolling combat. I was thinking of renewing my Gold account but at $5 and since I'm not interested in next week's Resident Evil stuff at the moment. I will pass.

 

I find it a little hard on the eyes to read the white text with light green background.

And this. I had to squint hard the first few times to see what the text said.

 

The darker green on white for Xbox One is perfect.

Why is there a new thread with a new caretaker?

Necrozilla killed BobbyTastic.

 

(I'm going to feel like a complete Slidecage when we find out BobbyTastic actually did die on Halloween from eating a fun-sized Snickers with a razor blade in it)

The Xbox 360 and Xbox One labels are using the exact same HEX color codes that CAG 3.0 uses for its Xbox 360 and Xbox One platform labels.

There aren't usually a ton of those labels right next to each other.

Anyone know why Konami put the DLC for Rising on both platforms to free? Are they getting ready to pull it?

That white-on-green look for 360 deals just doesn't work at that size. I would either make it larger or try a different color combination. Also, it would look better if you dropped the quotes and underlines from phrases like "Sales & Specials" and "Games with Gold." Just makes for a cleaner look, IMO.

I Think to advertise Revengeance having the MSRP of $30 now and to gain some good publicity since every gaming news outlet is reporting on it.

From what I gather from the various posts Necrozilla gave Bobby some caramel candy on Halloween with a needle in it and then Booby is gone and we have a new thread.

Microsoft giving away free copies of Killer Instinct. Check your emails. Supposedly some have "won" consoles but idk about that.

Spoiler

 

Not sure how this will work exactly. I'm guessing they probably won't just send you a code.

Was very happy to wake up to this email. Planned to buy them all anyways, so this is perfect for me.
