Loser deals for Scratch & Match:

400 points off Sine Mora (1200-->800)
240 points off Radiant Silvergun (1200-->960)
200 points off Ikaruga (800-->600)

Can't tell what the winning thing is.


All of these games are steal at asking prices! With some luck you can still find Sine Mora and Radiant code a bit cheaper in trading board here tho.

From the image, I would guess that the winning Scratch & Match prize is the Wall-running backflip Avatar animation, or something as equally pointless.

Damn, Sine Mora is finally on sale?! I'm very tempted to get that, though from what I heard, the PSN version was gonna get some exclusive content, like an additional character.

Does it really count as a deal if you have to buy Xbox Live gold for it?

I dunno ... is it really Costco if you have to buy a membership card to get in? Oh wait ...

When you click on "Facebook", it will include what you tried to win ... and I know you're all heartbroken about not getting the Fierce Move: Kung Fu Kick avatar item, normally worth 240pts.

And I have a fierce hot mess for them in return. :D

Chain Reaction is Bioshock Themed:

1. 200 points off Protector Trials
2. 200 points off Sinclair Pack
3. 400 Points off Rapture Metro
4. 600 points off Minerva's Den

Sooo this is why Bioshock DLC wasn't DotW :lol:


Was curious to see what a completed chain looked like, since I already have everything, but looks like they haven't tied the chain to the marketplace yet.

Doh! I just traded in :360: Saint's Row: The Third for $30 since The Digital Foundry said it was the weakest of the platforms. I purchased the complete package for $13.xx during the Steam Summer Sale but my computer only meets the required specs, not the recommended ones. I'd rather not play it on PC till I upgrade my comptuer.

What's the likelihood of THQ releasing an Ultimate Edition with all the DLC on disc?

No, worse ... the offers are tied to DLC that exists in a non-existent country. Thus, you may own it within the USA/Canada region, but this app references some geo that will never show up correctly in either the "Scratch & Match" or the "Chain Reaction" areas. That's why the app is STILL a POS.

Not bad, but they're still doing individual DLC items at $3 apiece (and $0.75 during Steam's massive sales), so there's a little life left in it. However, with "Enter the Dominatrix" now becoming the basis for the next game, that means a next game is confirmed to come out "soon". I'd say THQ would be crazy to put out an "ultimate edition" to either leech away people from the new title, or have buyers give them less money.

You may see it on PS3, because bundles are a weird hack in that storefront, but at least they work. And Steam is certainly capable as well, but you probably won't see it on 360 during this current Xbox Live Marketplace code-base.

And even though you've previously bought them, it will STILL not show them previously bought. Leave the "Chain Reaction" behind ... it hasn't worked right for 4 sets of offers now. :(

Posted 07 August 2012 - 02:28 PM

Two things:

Hybrid is priced into oblivion at 1200 Points. For an online-centric game, that guarantees a small userbase and thus poor sales over time.

Also, Microsoft isn't sending out review codes until Tuesday, the day before the game launches. This is in stark contrast to every other SoA title this year, which we got a week or more in advance. That could very well be a vote of low confidence in the game. Or they just don't want people on the servers yet for some reason, hard to say.

I'd like Hybrid to be good, but those two bits have me wary about it.


They said on twitter that they aren't giving early review codes because it's an evolving online world and they want it to be fair for everyone on day 1.


Yeah, what Yama said. There is a persistent world war going on in the game, when you start up you choose a faction and then fight for that faction. They seem to think this is going to be a really interesting aspect of the game, but I don't see it being anything more than which color is cooler, red or blue?

Also, I'm just beyond disappointed that 5th Cell wasted so much time on this game. I loved Scribblenauts and have no idea why the team behind a game so original decided to make a 3rd person online shooter for their first XBLA game.

i would love for the KOA DLC to go on sale, or Dragon age 2........or New Vegas so i can grab the last one cheap.


Haha nailed it, that was cool!

Loser deals for Scratch & Match:

400 points off Sine Mora (1200-->800)
240 points off Radiant Silvergun (1200-->960)
200 points off Ikaruga (800-->600)

Can't tell what the winning thing is.


Ikaruga is a Treasure game, right? Is it as hard as Radiant Silvergun, and does it have the same features where you can upgrade your ship over time?

Damn, Sine Mora is finally on sale?! I'm very tempted to get that, though from what I heard, the PSN version was gonna get some exclusive content, like an additional character.


Sine Mora's achievements are really awful too, for what that's worth.

Coming soon to XBLA by Major Nelson

Wow, they're FINALLY adding online for Scott Pilgrim? Though kind of sucks that I have to BUY it.


Ya, kind of sucks that they couldn't have just patched it in. I wonder if the new DLC will have achievements.

Bummer that I never got to bite on the last chain reaction thanks to it not working, but Sine Mora...my internet connection needs to be working by the end of this week as I would LOVE to pick that up.

Also nice to see Scott Pilgrim finally getting online, although after all this time, I'd be curious how active it'll actually be.

Yes, both are shmups by Treasure, but they both are different in terms of gameplay (Radiant Silvergun has the upgradable weapons, and Ikaruga has the whole black/white swapping thing). I would have to say Ikaruga is the tougher game, though that might differ for fans.

Hmmm, no mention of Jet Set Radio, NiGHTS, or Sonic Adventure 2...

Yeah, I'm hoping JSR will be out this month or the next (they said summer & it's just about over), though SA2 & NiGHTS are suppose to be coming this Fall, so probably Oct. or Nov.

Seeing as Sega has been adding avatar awards to their previous re-released games (not to mention JSR has some as well), really hoping to see SA2 & NiGHTS get some as well.

Those seem like the best losing deals yet.

Not really since the two shooters have both been half off before. When these loser deals first came out they matched previous deals of the week. Hard for me to justify buying a game knowing it has been on a much better discount before.

They wanted to have it, but because they had to get the game out by the time of the film's release, they didn't have the time to do it. Not sure why it took them almost 2 years to put it in, but better late than never, I guess....

Well we still have 2 weeks of SoA, so there won't be any other games released anyway.

Yes, both are shmups by Treasure, but they both are different in terms of gameplay (Radiant Silvergun has the upgradable weapons, and Ikaruga has the whole black/white swapping thing). I would have to say Ikaruga is the tougher game, though that might differ for fans.


Thanks. I really suck at shoot-em-ups, but I have a lot of fun with them so I'll be getting it.

Not really since the two shooters have both been half off before. When these loser deals first came out they matched previous deals of the week. Hard for me to justify buying a game knowing it has been on a much better discount before.


I agree and disagree. I agree in that when they started doing the Loser sales, things were 50% off and it was really nice. Then they dropped a lot of the sales to around 33% off, which just isn't as nice. I even passed on All Zombies Must Die for 560msp, because I'll wait for it to be 400msp or lower.

I disagree in that knowing a game has had a bigger discount previously doesn't really turn me off of a current sale. I mean, I don't have a time machine so it's not like I have access to that past deal. Plus, Ikagura hasn't been on sale in over 4 years! This $2.50 discount will be more than enough to get me to bite!

What's the likelihood of THQ releasing an Ultimate Edition with all the DLC on disc?


I think it will happen -- Saints Row 3 was a top selling game for THQ and I think the desire to milk it for a 'complete' edition will prove to be too strong for the marketing and sales people to resist, given the good sales numbers. This is typically why you don't see a complete edition for games with really crappy sales, even if the game itself had actual DLC (Dragon's Age 2, Monopoly Streets, etc)

But I doubt it will come out in 2012. I think you'll probably see it right before Saints Row 4 hits stores in 2013, but who knows when that is going to be.

EDIT: Of course, none of my reasoning explains why we never got a complete edition for Mass Effect 2, or Fable 3. Both games sold well enough.
