CastleStorm is next week's XBLA release. From looking at the gameplay videos, it looks like a mash-up of Swords & Soldiers and Angry Birds.

Yeah, this look like the first time since Feb 2012 that I'm not buying anything this month. I think I really did buy everything on the marketplace I want (besides some new releases).

Holy shit.

A. It's Monday. Nice.

B. A couple decent sales. Pid and maybe Matt Hazard.

3. Alan Wale sale? That's some foreshadowing shit right there. I hope. I'm half hard already.

Matt Hazard for me - probably forgettable game, but for 400msp why not. I forgot the last time that i bought XBLA game on DotW.

Some really nice offers: Bangai-o HD - i cannot recommend this enough. It's such a original, insane and addicting game with some pretty nice puzzles in some stages. Anyone who say this is a shmup is dead wrong.

Pid is worth 400msp for the atmosphere and characters alone. Some of the negatives: controls are not precise enough and you don't have an ability to move the camera a bit up and down, similar to Spelunky. Pid needs this in some levels.

Artorias contains some of the best bosses in Souls series. So yeah, fans will be all over this. :)

I'll probably grab Pid and Rocketbowl (my 200 msp rule kicks in here).
The rest I already have or are just complete crap.
Darkstalkers is very intriguing at 800 msps, but I'll probably wait till it hits 600 msp.

I completely agree with this. While it's a shame that the Story Mode from the Dreamcast/N64 version (which I REALLY wish would get ported one of these days) has never returned, it's still a really fun game with an insane amount of enemies & bullets on screen to the point there's slow down so the game can process all the stuff that's happening on screen.

The original Bangai-O was essentially a dual-stick shooter before the controllers were able to support it, but the two games that followed it have been turned into puzzle games because they changed how they design the levels.

What a pleasant monday surprise!! Also, I'm not interested in Alan Wake, but, up to 83%off????

Also, I will buy Dark Souls at half price with the DLC (If you buy Artorias, is like having a prepare to die edition?).

Just an FYI for those grabbing Matt Hazard. There is no online co-op mode. Only couch co-op. That's what stopped me from buying it in the past.

It's been 7 months since a one day sale on Forza 4 content and a year since it was Deal of the Week. I was really hoping it would be on sale to coincide with the announcement of Forza 5.

Pretty sure the Artorias DLC is the only thing that the prepare to die edition has over the regular edition.

Only thing that catches my attention is that Alan Wake sale. I've never played the series, but if the game is 83% off (potentially) the i'm sold.

Alan Wake is not available in GonD here... come on MS :/

I already played it, bought the first DLC on sale and then sold it, but if the second one has a good discount i may pick up a code on ebay and the DLC on XBL.
I think the 83% discount will be on avatar items and gamerpics, i expect the DLCs to be at 200 MSP and the XBLA one at 400/600 MSP.

Pid is fun. I overpaid for it on the trade thread, but for $5 it's a pretty decent game. It's tough, though.

I'm not sure where you are, but Alan Wake GoD isn't available in America either, which fucking sucks. I just sold my disc last week after hanging on to it for more than a year waiting for The Writer to finally go on sale. Fuck me.

EDIT: Here is a press release from Remedy saying Alan Wake was put on GoD in 2010. Why can't I find it?

Don't know what poochie is but that's a George Rodrigue painting, it's part of the blue dog series. He's a pretty famous local painter and restaurateur from where I used to live.


Poochie is a Simpsons reference. The video itself is Poochie-esque, I just used the Rodrigue painting to sneak the reference in.

Same here. I went to marketplace and the GoD is not available here. No Alan Wake then, I never really wanted to play that game so it's win-win.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On a side note, I really enjoyed Puzzle Quest 1, but I'm not sure to want to buy Puzzle Quest 2 or Galactrix. I think that I prefer playing again the first one instead of the sequels.

Interested in Pid and Matt Hazard for 400 each. Curious to see if Alan Wake DLC packs will be tempting enough to buy a DL Code from eBay in order to play them.

so are any of the 360 puzzle quests worth getting? I know it's available on virtually everything, but 400 is pretty cheap.

So will those codes still work even though it's not on Games on Demand?

I think 1 and 2 are definitely worth it. I think I'll probably grab Galactrix now, I passed at 800 a couple months ago.

I'll also check out Jeremy McGrath, Mad Tracks, Matt Hazard, and Rocketbowl.

It's funny how just a couple months ago games like Galactrix and Matt Hazard hadn't budged in price after years in the store, and now they'll both be over 60% off of their original price.

Your Gamer pic is from Pid, right?

1 & 2 are great. I have them on XBLA, DS & PC, so definitely pick them up at 400 MSPs. Galactrix I just couldn't get into. I'd skip that one.
