Here we go.....
Ah, that Superbowl ad was amusing to me.
That really sums up how I feel about discussing games with others as well...
Well, I feel partially responsible for the "off the rails" course the thread has gone, and I feel bad for that. I originally intended to offer a minority perspective on a specific game someone mentioned they were considering to purchase (possibly for the rewards offer), since the person had an initial negative impression but later positive. It was not intended to spark divisive conversation. You mentioned you disagreed with my points, when I didn't feel I offered any due to length of the post, so I presented clarification for consideration in hopes to assist with a purchasing decision. I don't believe there's anything wrong with discussion about games, I am just unhappy the thread has strayed a bit from XBL deal/reward discussions since we have something new this week along with a pretty good reward offer for the month. To repeat: my intention was to detail a minority perspecitve on a specific game for assisting in a specific person's purchasing decision, nothing more.
Back to the deals ...
Now that DiRT 3
Complete Edition has been announced, granted the game does not appeal to me, but it does encourage me some publishers still release editions of games better for the late adopter. Now this may tell me DiRT 3
DLC may get the Deal of the Week treatment in the immediate future if the Live team wants to be cruel ^^. No, but seriously, I held out on Arkham Asylum and later got its GotY Edition when it was on sale. Given next week's DotW, and I have not acquired Arkham City yet, do you think it is likely a GotY edition shows up for me? (and I am not asking about its GotY worthiness, just the possibilty of an edition with all/most the DLC)
Also, in my search for unlikely marketplace items to see a deal, I have come across a Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes
"I am the boss" DLC at 240MSP. I like the base game which did get on a sale before, it is an Ubisoft published game, and based on the description on the dashboard the DLC sounds a bit overpriced. I played the base game on another platform (nowhere near completion) but the XBLA edition is in my backlog, and I intend to play it to completion. Do you think it is better if I should hold out for a sale on this DLC item or just take it now for 5% refund?

Also, I am getting Soul Calibur (1) for 5% reward back now, expect that to be DotW now that I paid too much
