Just picked up Broken Steel for Fallout 3. I actually finished the last side quest for Fallout 3 yesterday, so this is perfect timing. Are the other two dlcs worth buying at 400 msp?


Point Lookout is a must-buy, Operation Anchorage and Mothership Zeta are underwhelming.

GOTY copy of FO3 available at AWD for $15. Might as well sell your copy and get all the DLC. (I recommend it all, EXCEPT Mothership Zeta. Trudged myselg through it to get my 1550/1550 and Platinum) :lol: If you know someone with a copy, download and install the DLC disc to your drive and it should be good to go, regardless of your current games' state.

Saw this list on a German site (http://www.looki.de/...ate_n89977.html) that claims to have a roadmap to the deals upcoming, including today's Fallout deals, but it's possible the article was written after Fallout was discovered. Nothing listed for tomorrow, so it sounds slightly shady, but a good read nonetheless.

12/22/2011: Fallout contents
24.12.2011: Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition
25/12/2011: Fruit Ninja Kinect
12/26/2011: Forza Motorsport 4 content (including Season Pass, avatar items)
12/27/2011: Reach Halo content (including Gond, packs, avatar items, etc.)
28/12/2011: Sonic contents
12/29/2011: Red Dead Redemption content
30/12/2011: Gears of War 3 content (including Season Pass Add-ons and avatar items)
31.12.2011: Call of Duty contents

It also seems odd to have a sale on the Gears 3 season pass, and "only" Fruit Ninja on Christmas. Take it with a grain of salt and re-evaluate it on the 24th when that deal is announced. Figured it's something though. Don't shoot the messenger if it's fake.

I hope the 30th and 31st are true. The other days though are a little lackluster (Some of it I have but some of it doesn't appeal to me). Last year was a lot better with XBLA games and DLC on sale at the same time each day.

Agreed. Fallout 3 is one of my all time favorites. Definitely get Broken Steel and Point Lookout. The Pitt is decent, and IMHO zeta and anchorage arent worth the time.

Picked up both of the New Vegas DLC packs I was missing (Old World Blues and Lonesome Road). I may just bite the bullet and buy Gun Runner's Arsenal at full price, but I'll at least wait until I boot the game up again.

Wow if this turns out to be true that would be AWFUL. I wouldn't end up spending a single msp. Way too much dlc. But not gonna get worked up about it yet, just hope its not real. :)

That's what I'm figuring too, but figured it's definitely something to put out there just in case it's not fake. Not sure why a German site would have the details though and Kotaku or another site wouldn't have it. None of it interests me either, except the Gears 3 season pass for the right price, but I'd guess 33% if they really did discount it.

I just don't want the last two days to be fake. I want a chance at Gears 3 DLC and Black Ops DLC.

I'd be OK with that "leaked" list, I've been thinking about getting Fruit Ninja and the Gears of War 3 DLC as it is. Heck, I might even buy a Forza 4 DLC pack. I don't think the sales are great but I'm not exactly sure what people are expecting...

Less DLC, more standalone games for me. Most of that "leaked list" is DLC. Not into Street Fighter, and no Kinect so not much there. I guess I'd try Sonic for the right price. They should have kept Bastion for late into the sale though. The list also lacks the January days.

I'm very ok with today's deal. I don't need it and don't have any more points yet.
That leaked list is pretty weak so I hope it's fake. At least it would save me money.

I'm with you on that. I won't be getting anything if that list is real.

However, is it possible that since this list was on a German site that perhaps these deals might be different for us in the US? Or will these deals be for all regions?

Well, today's deal on there shows Fallout content (aka DLC) but it's possible he created the list after it was leaked, put that as today's deal, and skipped tomorrow to buy the site 24 hours of traffic. I'd definitely take it with the smallest grain of salt, to say the least.

It's probably not real, but I wish it was. Then I can commit my points to Bloodrayne. (Anyone on the fence about it should try the demo - it's a challenging game.)

I got it but I can't really say anything good about it besides the art.

While the animation flows so well it feels like I'm playing in a cartoon the gameplay is more or less garbage and the achievements are out of the realm of people who haven't played the game 10 times over.

I actually just beat Bloodrayne today. I got it on release day and all I can say is that it's frustratingly hard at certain points. I'm someone who always plays games on easy just so I can enjoy the journey so Bloodrayne was very challenging. I beat Super Meat Boy but Bloodrayne does not have the tight controls Super Meat Boy had so sometimes it feels like it's Bloodrayne's fault that you are losing and not your own fault.

I'm always sort of just lurking and don't post much but thanks for doing such a great job redjoey, and I'm digging the site Spylon.

Really? I played the demo - it goes up to the first boss, does it get worse? - and the game's tempo was so smooth that it felt like I had ESP. Like as soon as vampire grunts appear, you mash them with melee attacks, send one flying towards the other end of the screen because there's one about to shoot you, then clean up a third and suck his blood. Keep walking and as soon as you see those exploding thingies, bam, one shot from your gun takes them out, because they do a lot of damage when they self-destruct. Keep walking and you have to backflip onto a ledge to take out some lampposts. It was like a Sonic game where you never get hit.

I don't know if Outrun is still the talk of the thread but I do want to say that Outrun isn't really a racing game in the traditional sense. It's a game that's all about drifting through each turn expertly, threading the needles. It's compelling and deep but in an accessible, fun, arcadey way. You don't have to be great at it to enjoy it. I think it helps to get into the mindset of the game to realize that the principal reason you would choose manual transmission in Outrun is because an immediate downshift/upshift toggle will send you into a drift without costing you the speed of tapping the brakes. The game expects you to think in those terms, maximum controlled drift, maximum MPH.

Really though, for all that, I can't make a compelling thesis as to why it's fun but I love it.

And, still, Outrun 2006 is the SUPERIOR product in every way to the XBLA offering in terms of content. It's been pulled already but OOA is not a bad dose of Outrun if it's your only. You aren't deprived if you ONLY have OOA.

You know what? I just realized that you guys were probably playing Bloodrayne with a standard 360 controller. I was using my Street Fighter pad - it's smaller and fits into your hands better, and the d-pad is worlds apart from the shit-pad on a 360 controller. Now I'm really excited to get the game. How long is it?

There's only fifteen chapters and it took me around four hours to finish it. The game does have some collectibles to improve your character and it has a ranking system that I have yet to get anything above an F in. So there is some replay value, but I never felt compelled to try to get a better score since that would involve trying not to get damaged and speeding through everything with no mistakes.

By the way, I played it on the PS3 and still found the controls troublesome. I was happy when I finished the game and didn't have to play it anymore, but I really enjoyed the soundtrack, so I've got mixed feelings on it.

I got Bloodrayne @ launch so at 600 msp I'd recommend it. No one has mentioned that the game comes with some gamerpics which are sweet and look cool. The only bad thing I can say is the difficulty challenge but it'll take some time and patience.
