As Gabrius said, I would get Bastion today since it's only on sale today while Renegade Ops is on sale till 1/2. Then go get another points card to get Renegade Ops and possibly any of the other daily deals :)


Will you get any gift cards etc for Xmas? You could use those to get more points.

Oh, I knew Bastion was only on sale today, but I thought Renegade Ops and all the others were only on sale today as well. Thanks for the heads up! I'll pick up Bastion now and get more points for the others. Thanks guys!

Says "Live Event Sold Out" when I try and buy the UFC event so guess all 25k are gone already, lame.

I asked somewhere else, but figured I'd ask here too.

I'm getting a new console for Christmas. Will my purchase carry over to the new console once I do that license transfer thing?


I honestly don't know, but I'd wager it's tied to your gamertag and you could easily switch.

When all those deals went live last night, I thought for sure that MS would say they accidentally flipped the switch on the 12 days of deals early and most of those things would go back up to full price today.

So happy to see there's a holiday sale and 11 more days of deals.

Yes all licences, except rentals, will transfer over to a new console games, god, dlc, videos. (Not sure about Zune content as I have never purchased something from Zune marketplace.) I have done this multiple times over the years because of Red Rings.

It's all up to MS (they can drop the prices any time) but my site should find it soon afterwards. Check around 6:30 to 7:00 Pacific.

Grabbed Rock of Ages as well... still debating Bloodrayne and the LA Noire pass. On the former, I'm just intimited by the extremely mixed reviews... on the latter, I haven't even had a chance to play LA Noire yet and am always hesitant to buy DLC for games I have yet to try...

I would say only get the LA Noire DLC if you care about achievements. Unless you're using a walkthrough and rushing, the main game will take a good bit of time to complete so, to me, the extra content kind of felt like work. Also, this is already the second time it's been on sale (third if you count the early-adopter discount) so it seems likely to be on sale again if you love the game so much that you need more cases.

Good points all around. I think I'll wait on it... heaven knows my backlog is big enough as is. Thanks for the recommendation.

Does the Complete Version have everything that the Season Pass offers? I was thinking of waiting until that version drops in price later on. My backlog is too high right now.
1 John 1:7,9
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

To the best of my knowledge, yes.

Isn't the Rockstar Pass missing "The Consul's Car" case? The Complete Version is the way to go for a completionist.

Is it definitely included in the 360 version? I can't find confirmation of that and they didn't add new achievements.

Personally I thought that cases included in the Rockstar pass were better than most of the cases included in the main game, it's an absolute steal at that price.

I picked up Bastion and Rock of Ages. I'll almost definitely get ITSP, and I'm considering Renegade Ops and Bloodrayne, but I'm waiting for more daily deals.

If you've never played Portal, I think it's worth it.

Yup. And there aren't any achievements associated with it, just like there aren't any trophies with it.

I watched plenty of video on Rock of Ages and loved it, but I just got around to playing the demo and I felt a bit underwhelmed.

What gives? I was so set on buying it, now I'm unsure.

Bloodrayne Betrayal's demo was horrible. Just an awful attempt at stylish tough action. Dishwasher beats it in just about every respect. What a disappointment.

Renegade Ops is also decent as a demo but it never gets better. It's just the same boring back and forth objectives with lousy vehicle handling all game. In co-op it might be a little fun but it's not a good game by itself.

Afterburner Climax is good fun though, if you like something light and wow and not that deep

If you've never played Portal 1 in any form, absolutely get Still Alive. DO NOT play Portal 2 without having played the first, it won't have nearly the same impact.

I just wanted to stop in after my 12 hour work day to say...

BASTION. Fuck YEAH.

Killer opening to a great sale. Totally considering ITSP and Rock of Ages as well. I'm going to try the demo for Renegade Ops.

How many fanboys does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

10, 1 to do it & 9 to complain how much better the 1st one was.

Is the Rockstar pass a today only deal or is it going during the entire christmas sale?
