Sweet. I had 200 msps on a silver account that did not know what to do with. Added a Free 1 month of gold and bam....free (as far as I am concerned) Nin2-jump. :)
I already have Haunt and will pick up VOOT even though my Dreamcast copy is still shrinkwrapped. I just feel the need to spend some points. :)

For the japanese game, are you referring to Mushi Futari Black Label? That is actually DLC. Now...if I can figure out if it works with version 1.5, I'm snatching that sucker up. Granted, I thought the original price was 800 points, but considering I would've bought it already at full price had I known it was there, I'm not complaining.

Tough week for me. I love VO:OT, but 600 still seems like too much to me. I would rather just play my DC version and hope that Sega releases another Dreamcast collection in the future on-disc with VO:OT, JSR HD, Shenmue, and whatever else.

I'm not normally too big on graphics and I love supporting Cave games, but I just tried the demo for Nin2 Jump and I do not know if I can pay 200 for it. I really like the style of the game, except it looks blurry and fuzzy as hell to me, and is off-putting.

For Nin-Jump, it's not the greatest game, but from what I remember, it was more a charity case in the sense that proceeds went to benefit Japan. I'm thinking this was after the earthquake, but not sure if it was that or something else off the top of my head.

Nice, prolly grab Haunt and Nin2-JUMP.

Nin2-Jump was really cool, I enjoyed it. I bought it right when it came out because (supposedly) the first month of sales were gonna be donated to the Red Cross for Japan.

Anyway, the game is well worth 200. I mean, it's just a simple short platformer, but the art style was interesting and I enjoyed it. Easy 200/200 GS as well, if I remember correctly.

I do remember reading there was a bug that would corrupt or delete saved data, so maybe read up on that before you start playing.

Nothing this week for me, but nice to see some Arcade games on sale. Wish it was Ikagura on sale, wasn't Guwange just on sale???

Not reading that. Braid really wasn't that good. It was a fun puzzler, but it didn't have much beyond that.

I think Braid is amazing and still my favorite XBLA game, but to be honest I didn't read it all either. It was really rough on video games, and praised Jon Blow just a bit too much.

I'm not sure what to tell you, but if you read the link I posted, the guide said to disconnect the Xbox from the internet once the download hit 99% and download the last 1% through VPN, otherwise the Xbox won't let the download finish. Are you sure you don't have a way of connecting your Xbox to the internet through your PC (i.e. Xbox -> PC -> router)?

On the other hand, if you're already downloading it, does that mean you already bought it? Try checking your Storage, as the game might actually be on your HD, but your console is denying you access to it.


I need to dig around when I get home tonight and see if I have any network cards. I realized that may have been the issue after I gave up for the night last night. Everything runs through the router and I only have the one ethernet port on my PC atm.

I was able to purchase the game by buying it on my PC through a Chinese proxy. The file corrupts at 99% when downloading on my Xbox saying "Can't download Virtual On". Worst case scenario I'm going to have to haul my Xbox to my brother's house and try from his wife's laptop.

I'm going to get this freaking game if it kills me! I'm in for disappointment with it it seems-didn't know they slowed down the combat to accommodate 4 players. Hopefully it isn't too slow as I really love the high intesity single player from past versions.

Nothing for me this week in either DotW. Knew that was coming. Tried not to get my hopes up but it happened anyway. Also bought Nin-2Jump during the 5% rebate. 180 point gamble and loss. Not too terrible.

Oh and I would HIGHLY recommend VOOT. But then that should be pretty obvious by how much I'm working just to get VOF. :P

Well, decided to bite and get Nin2-Jump, since I'd have 200 spare points after buying VOOT and Guwange anyway. The upcoming DotWs seem kinda lame, but I'd say these games make up for it. Heck, I thought they were the DotW.

I know there was a tutorial that used to get posted in the free forum a lot when Japan had exclusive free items. I don't have a link but you could try looking there.

You shouldn't need it though. Use Google Chrome which has built in translation and if you need to put in an address just search for a random one on Google.

I'd recommend following a tutorial like this one. You do need to know a few specific steps.

So an add on for a not commercially available in the US game is a Deal of the Week... yeah...

Did grab the two games that had previously not been on sale (and/or I didn't own) in Haunt and Nin2-Jump.

Just from looking at the Nin2-Jump screens, is it anything like Super Meat Boy? As in short, digestible platform levels? 'Cause I love SMB and will jump on this (no pun intended) if that's the case.

Crap. I added 800 points to my Japanese account before I realized the Mushihimesama Futari DLC deal is for Gold members only. I could start a new Japanese account for a month of gold, but I'd have to buy another 800 points code. :(

Yes, that's what it's like. It's got a reputation for being extremely easy but I found it kind of tough. Maybe it was more that I had trouble getting my head around the controls.
