Sale is finally over, prices are back up but none of the leftovers have changed prices. Anyone else wondering if the picture packs, Assassin's Creed GoDs and avatar stuff are permanent drops?

Edit: Just got home and answered my own question. Recently Reduced is up, will update OP accordingly.

Edit 2: Oh shit, just checked the Sales & Specials app and the Chain Reaction is new. More work ahead of me. Can confirm the earlier post about the "loser" deals this week being valid, also.

I was ready to get Bejeweled 3 but seeing it included on the Zuma's Revenge disc makes me want to get that instead and wait for a price drop. Although it may end up cheaper if ZR drops to 400 MSP when it inevitably goes on sale numerous times...

Also, I continue to be disappointed in Astropop's 400 MSP price. That should have dropped a long time ago and be on sale for 200. I remember it being one of the first XBLA games I wanted. I've considered getting PopCap Arcade Vol. 1 just for it, but I dunno how many times I can keep getting the same games on compilation discs. I'll probably just buy it finally.

I think I own everything else between Bejeweled Blitz, PopCap Arcade Vol. 2, Plants vs Zombies disc, XBLA Unplugged and XBLA Compilation disc.

I'm avoiding picking up Bejeweled 3 during this sale for the same reasons. If Zuma's Revenge is anything like the disc version of Plants vs. Zombies (which included Peggle and Zuma) then it'll be sub-$20 pretty soon. Which works for me for once because I don't own Feeding Frenzy 2 either. And I also looked into the Popcap Arcade compilations, they're surprisingly expensive used on Amazon, so I might just bite on Astropop and Heavy Weapon along with Bejeweled Blitz and Peggle Nights since I didn't end up getting Raskulls, Mad Riders and Warp.

Also, apologies in advance for any snark in the Wiki edits, can't help myself sometimes. It's why I shouldn't be allowed to edit Wikipedia.

This, and ditto in regards to Heavy Weapon. Both are more than ready to a permanent price drop to 400, so they can finally go on sale for 200 and I can buy both of them.

It gets better. In the process of updating the OP (and going through the app), I discovered that if you own Offers 1 through 3 (Vietnam, SPECACT Bundle, Onslaught Mode), which I do, the 4th offer is for the Kit Shortcut Bundle (1200 MSP/$15) and because of the offer it is absolutely FREE. This may be some sort of error, but it just worked for me, so get on it!

I'm gonna attempt to put the Mystery Wheel details into the OP, and then call it a day. After that, OP should be good 'till next week other than the Batman hiccup.

Edit: It's looking like the Mystery Wheel is offering exclusive avatar stuff because I can't find it on Xbox.com or Spylon's site anywhere. Any ideas?

Edit 2: Being a sucker, I decided to probably be the first person to give the wheel a spin. It's kinda interesting seeing your avatar spin the wheel but the input for it is just stupid. Ended up getting the Vine Wall of all things, FML. Can also confirm these avatar items are not available on the website. Really annoyed though how even though something you buy off the app is in your purchase history, it doesn't translate to you owning it.

The problem isn't the misspelling of "from", but the fact that anyone should trust reviews from IGN in the first place.

Yeah, my finger twitched "From IGN"
Yeah, there have been dozens of reviews I didn't agree with on IGN part but For most part there reviews are spot on....I don't think anybody else is going to rave about it by a landslide or anything. Neon Sounded awesome on paper but I will still download the Demo and prepare to be let down...lets see if this tops "Final Fight Streetwise" :/

They always seem to grade the big high profile games 1.0 or more then other games that aren't as big in the hype wagon or from a big company. Especially if they get the go ahead to release the review early. So I'm always skeptic of their reviews. Plus I don't need to even go into detail about their terrible "top lists".

And didn't Streetwise have that annoying feature where if you save people from a mugging or whatever they follow you and literally get in the way of your punches and kicks?

...and an 8.25 from Game Informer and a 9.0 from Joystiq. We should also note the IGN reviewer's obvious distaste for anything arcade-beat-em-up oriented.

Hmm

that begs the question did this reviewer have alot of games to review on his plate or did he just dislike beat em ups... This isn't the first case of opposite reviews from IGN and then everybody else. I give it a download who knows I might love it or Hate it.

From the looks of it, none of these reviewers, even the ones that liked DD:N, have played a Double Dragon game in years. It's like these nitwits think every series that got rebooted began and ended on the NES. Hey guys, Bionic Commando had THREE games before Rearmed, at least. Mega Man even hit the SNES once or twice, guys.

With the latest Dash update, I can no longer use the Sales App.

It just freezes when I open the app, has it been updated?

Maybe it is blocked outside of the US now?

Probably ... the rules indicate only US & UK, and must be over 18 (aka must be an adult XBL account). This is most assuredly due to the gambling & contest aspects of the app, if it wasn't already due to Marketplace licensing & discount differences between regions.

Picked up Bejeweled 3 as I dug 2 somewhat and moreso Blitz Live. Pretty fun, but I find myself having to use the D pad to move as the analog stick just isn't as responsive as it was on the other two.

Still recommend Live over it though, if you don't have any and are looking. Live plays a little better and is seems a bit more asy for 250-ing the chivos.

No problem, just updated the OP with that. Also fixed some info about the S&S+ app, and added a few "xbldb" links ... since I'm not doing much else today except spending the last few hours with my cat before we take her to the vet for the LAST time. :cry:

CORRECTION: The previous link was to BF3's shortcut pack. The BF2BC's shortcut pack is 1200 MSP, so yes, it will be FREE. I'll fix the OP again.

What do you mean by soon? If you mean in the coming weeks then no fucking way. Maybe in December at best, but that's still a big maybe.
