I was off to purchase Ms. Splosion Man and then saw the 1.94 GB download size. Yikes! I have the space available but do I really want to eat up the size of a dozen other XBLA titles with this? They've made me second-guess my purchasing decision.


It's got a lot of voice acting, videos, and tons of levels... IMO it's worth it.

I really suck at Splosion man, but I picked up Ms. Splosion man anyway.

I liked Splosion Man a lot but after playing Super Meat Boy it seemed to have lost its flair when i went to try the Ms. Splosion man demo and I didn't care for it, when its supposedly much better than the first.

Edit: Those that have both Splosion man games, think I should give it another shot? I mean does the demo represent a good portion of the improvements they made?

I really liked Splosion Man, but I like Ms. Splosion Man even better. The levels are really well-designed and the new elements like the zip lines are nicely integrated into the gameplay. Also, the presentation is top-notch, with more environmental variety and a huge number of unlockables like in Comic Jumper.

We're getting two one day sales around Thanksgiving, a Black Friday and a Cyber Monday sale. Wonder when we'll find out what is in them?

Ms. Splosion had a pretty fun demo. I've a ton of points in my account (thanks to my non-purchase of the Gears Season Pass) so....I'm in :O

Now, c'mon Half-Minute Hero...

Any ideas what will be in the 2K Games sale?

I'm assuming Bioshock, Borderlands, Mafia and Duke Nukem DLC. That's pretty much all they have out, aside from the 2K Sports side, right?

My guess: Lara Croft GoL, Splosion Man, or Red Dead Redemption DLC.


I was pretty close there.

Coming to Xbox Live Marketplace blog up

Black Friday AND Cyber Monday sales confirmed!

Edit: Ninja'd by someone else. Not sure if I want Sega Rally Arcade Online. Hoping for good sales on BF & CM, plus that Xbox Live Fan Appreciation Sale.

Streets of Rage 2 for 200 points is a no-brainer.

I picked up Ms. Splosion Man. I think I can get $5 worth of play time.

Will major Nelson reveal the BF deals a few days before they go live or will we have to wait until they show up?

Lots of special sales coming up. My points are stockpiled and ready. :)

Picked up Mafia 2 about a couple weeks ago on the cheap from Gamefly. Here's hoping the DLC is included in the 2k stuff this week.

I'm just wondering how much did you buy it for because the platinum hits version of Mafia 2 comes with all the DLC on a second disc. Might have been a better deal.

Was thinking about getting Ms. Splosion Man, but, due to being light in the wallet, I think I'll wait for those one day sales next week.

Looking forward to seeing what's in the sales. I already own all the best of Arcade, for the most part. But Half Minute Hero for 400? I'd bite.

Since I got Splosion man for only two dollars, spending 5 for the sequel seems too high considering I suck at the game as it is...

Actually I suck at all games from this publisher...IMO fun games like these should be easy.

Ms. Splosion Man showed up at 400, so I grabbed it.

Already own SOR and CT, waiting on SEGA Rally's price drop.

I love Streets of Rage 2, but hard to bite considering I have the genesis disk. Regardless, most likely getting Ms. Splosion Man this week.

And Uno? Who doesn't have Uno at this point? :razz:

I stream on Twitch. At least two times a week. http://www.twitch.tv/jstryker416
