They didn't go as fast I thought. Took over an hour. It began while I was at work and I took an hour lunch and there were still some left when I got back.

Most likely indirectly when they have stipulations for buying anything on Xbox Live.

Yeah I thought so, but the 5% reward for example didn't include indie games...soo I'm curios if Indie Games ever applied to any rewards...

Just asking because there's a bunch of Indie Games out there I want to buy, but with the huge backlog just for the 360 (around 200 Games to start, over 100 to finish) I'd like to get some reward to make it worth my while lol


also...I've never thought I would hear this words: Not available in USA lol

i usually check this thread every day then i miss a few days and find out free minecraft codes were being given out by raptr and i was eligible now they are all gone FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU


Yeah, I know how you feel. But hopefully whoever got what could've been my code is enjoying it, 'cause I gave the demo a shot the other night - not having tried Minecraft before - and for some reason I just don't have the patience. I guess I really am hardwired for mindless killing sprees.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Anyone know whats going on Serious Sam 3?


From Croteam FB Page - Quick update on Xbox 360 Serious Sam 3: BFE regarding questions is it going to be retail or digital distribution - it will be released digitally on Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA).

http://www.facebook....191676850855803

AND

Regarding Xbox 360 SS 3, it is in development, so we are on it since PC was released... It does require time to do all kinds of optimizations, first to fit all in memory and to get decent framarate, as 360 is rather old hardware now (512MB RAM, lower range graphics card etc).

Please be patient for around 4 more months for 360, we are doing our best to finish it in that timeframe.


Kinda sucks though was wanting a physical release...oh well.
The CAG motto: "Maybe you'll luck out and get the game during a sale before it sells out, maybe not, that's the life of a CAG. Luck of the draw. And timing is everything."

nope. Probably around 8 am eastern either spylon's website or major nelson should have the dotw and whats on tap for the following week. Also VF 5 xbla arcade game edition comes out in 3 weeks for 1200 MSP. Depending on the demo i might bite. Virutal Fighter is probably my 2nd favorite fighting franchise. Man the amount of time i put into #4 both in the arcade and on my ps2 isn't even funny.

Here is another typical question: Should I get the Splinter Cell DLC, haven't started the main game yet but don't know if I WANT to start this game....wait for another price drop? Or is the DLC worth to get it now? =O

Well Half Minute has dropped 50% off before...but only in Germany during a week where Dead Rising Games were on sale..we got this as a substituion deal, since we don't have any Dead Rising Games over here...(due stupid censorship)

And I would recommend the Dreamcast Collection just played Space Channel 5 Pt 2 a few minutes ago on this disc lol

There are some people in the trade thread with HMH. You can probably get it cheap there right now.

Splinter Cell Conviction's multiplayer is super fun, and you only need two people to play it (split-screen or online). Unless you're averse to playing with others, it's a good buy. I'd also stop putting off the game; it really is a blast.

Ooga is also the man, I vouch for him for sure. But yeah, there are at least 3 HMH games floating around the trade board at the moment, and HMH is my XBLA game of the year from last year, it's awesome as Fuck.

I LOVE that XBLA trade board, I've picked up basically everything I've wanted from the last 6 months that hasn't been on sale. Only drawback is that it kills the excitement the night before new Deal of the Weeks are announced. Seriously, the 2 games on the top of my XBLA Want List are Sine Mora and Scarygirl.

Only thing that sucks about that board is that so many people don't take Paypal.

Thanks for pointing this out. They do this every Friday? Seems like a pretty awesome contest. I would have been SOL this week cuz of Alan Wake, but I'll keep an eye on it next week.

I used to frequent PlayXBLA when it first started, but it was pretty much a "Caption this stupid picture" blog, so I stopped checking it out. I guess they've gotten better.

I was in the same boat... SOL because of Alan Wake. But after doing the Minecraft and Comic Jumper cheevos, I decided to take the gamble and grab Alan Wake in the hopes of some good prizes. I'm glad I did! Alan Wake was awesome! So awesome in fact I just ordered the GoD version of the original for $7 (thanks CAG!). Can't argue with that price.

Basically it boiled down to spending 1200 MSP on 3 pretty sweet games. Ended up trading Ms. Splosion (bought it at launch) for The Splatters. I am pleased with the results.

I just found out about it last week, but apparently it has been going on for a few months. They post the challenge every Friday. Some have been easy, but I think they are making it harder and harder each week. I hope I have the games needed for this weekend ;). I've heard the prizes can be hit or miss too. Sometimes you get full games, and other times you get codes for DLC. So like I said, it was a gamble.

They still do the caption contest lol...
