This DOTW sucks because I bought all these games at launch and put so many hours into Metal Slug 3 it's probably unhealthy.


Seriously though, KOF Skystage is garbage.

Hell to the Fuck Yes!!!!!!! both metal slugs are half off. Aswell with both KOF games and trouble witch neo. And you sillys said april was gonna have shitty deals.


Trouble witches neo is a fantastic little shmup. Play the game first as the standard chars. Luca is way OP... but she helped me 1 cc the game on normal =) Easily worth 400 msp IMHO.

Sky Stage is nothing special, but still a fun little shmup. Calling it garbage is just hyperbole.

Woot, I've been waiting for these SNK sales. Ever since I was able to play them free with the Modern Warfare 2 glitch, now its time to buy some and finish them off.

Grabbing Hydro Thunder and Trouble Witches. Have to be careful to avoid an abnormal Achievement Score due to the latter.

There are a few achievements in TWN that are impossible for me to get (20th stage boss comes to mind) so definitely figure out which ones you want to earn if having an odd gamerscore bothers you.

20th stage boss one is tough as nails. I'm not good at shmups either, but still have fun playing them.

Probably will get Metal Slug 3 (I already got KoF Sky Stage and Trouble Witches Neo, both of which are fun for their cheap prices). Not sure on Metal Slug XX since I owned the PSP version a while back that had some extra content, like that Mission Mode oh wait, that was XX as well. I was thinkin' of the original version, Metal Slug 7 on the DS. Hopin' Xbox Rewards will deposit the 100 MSP that's pending (though since I reached 100 by doing the April survey, probably won't get it until next month) so then I only have to spend $5 on MSXX

Speaking as a shmup fan and as a SNK fan, Sky Stage is not a good game. The game feels like a doujin shmup. The enemy ship designs are generic to the point where they look like they came right out of Xevious. There is a super move system implemented in the game that tries to give the game a unique mechanic but is ultimately just a typical charge-and-shoot option for the player. I actually really enjoyed the developer's other work on Raiden IV, but this is a noticeable step down from that.

Edit: I realize the above may make it sound like the worst game ever, but it's not. The game is just rather plain feeling. It's just that it's difficult to recommend this game when there are so many other better shmups available on the 360. Trouble Witches Neo is a far better choice for the same cost.

Definitely in for the Metal Slugs. ALMOST caved last month for the 5%. Glad I didn't. I'd be tempted in the KOF fighters as well if I wasn't so terrible at fighting games.

Also, is xbox.com giving problems for anyone else? I can load the main page fine, but everything I try clicking on a game to download a demo or whatever, it says runtime error.

Trouble Witches Neo has bizarre GS values for each achievement: 7, 15, 11, 25, 25, 42, 3, 29, 20, 5, 5, 13.
What the Fuck!!!

Daytona is still 400 points, do I want it or not? Any suggestions?
Edit: I figured it's just 400 points so I bought it. but immediately after I purchased it, it says can't download. It does say I purchased it though. Anyone else having marketplace issues?

I bought it in the last second. It's a nice little game. Most of us purchased the game mainly from nostalgia.

edit That was 1hr ago via xbox.com. Still haven't tried to download it on my 360.

Metal Slugs are a win. Insta-buys now that they are finally discounted. Already picked up TWN. Guess that's all we're getting the next two weeks...

Another CoD sale next week. Sigh..

Anyone recommend any of the KoF games? One of the few fighting franchises I never really payed much attention to so I have no idea if any of these are worth picking up.

Sixteen months after its release, and Black Ops map packs STILL won't go down. So fucking stubborn.

Why did Activision charge $15 instead of $10? I definitely would've bought it at that price.
And here's a question, with MW3 out now, and a new COD coming out this November, is it practical to even buy Black Ops map packs at this time?

Interesting, DotW this week is really good and has a ton on 1st time sale content, and DotW next week is rehashed trash that surely everyone who wants it owns by now.

Also, didn't see it mentioned, but Hydro Thunder Hurricane is probably the Family Gold Deal for April.

Hmmm...can't seem to get signed into xbox.com at all. May end up missing Daytona. Not a huge loss, but hopefully I'm able to get it before it jumps back up in price.

Do you have to be a member of something besides xbl gold to get the 300 points?
Join me or die. Can you do any less?
