DD Neon soundtrack is available here (pay what you want)- http://virt.bandcamp...ble-dragon-neon

Think I'll take advantage of that & donate a little. There's some awesome songs in DD:N & the guy has done some other stuff that I've really liked (I donated a few bucks to get the Mighty Switch Force songs). I'm gonna wait & beat the game to hear what the ending credits sound like, though.

I wonder how many GoD copies of Borderlands they could have sold if they marked it down to 800 points this week or the last. I know I would have re-visited Pandora if they did.

They had it for like 12 or 13 bucks not too long ago when they had the large GOD promotion with a bunch of titles ranging from $5 to $15. I picked it up then even though I still own my original vanilla disc and the GOTY disc, haha. I really do adore this franchise. Its fantastic being able to load it up on a whim for a shoot & loot fix.

I guess i'm the ugliest one here and cainaiac is the sexiest, damn.

Warp is a pretty good game for $5. Got all the achievements finally, but it took a a bit longer than anticipated due to multiple playthroughs.

No demo for DD:N, guess I'm holding out for reviews and positive word of mouth.


It's up now, at least on the website. I added DD:N & Shank 2 to my queue. DD:N is 2.24GB!

no they will put ur points in the negative they will get them back


False. This exact same thing happened last year with rewards points being incorrectly multiplied by 4. All the people who spent their points right away got free games while the rest of us suckers had the points taken away. Never again! Unfortunately, I didn't qualify for the offer this time around...

This is correct. Last year when this happened and I got the 800 points, I spent them right away on outland and never had my account go to the negative. I got the 1600 points this year and spent those right away also, my account is still sitting at the 160 msp I had left. MS will NOT put our accounts into the negative.

Damn, I'm glad I read this thread. I noticed I had about 1,200 points too many last night and didn't think anything of it. I read this thread and then my memory of what happened last year was suddenly jogged. I downloaded Mark of the Ninja, which I was going to get anyway, so that's a nice little score for me. That's two years in a row they did the exact same thing.

I only have 42 points left now. Go ahead and take 'em, MS!

Just want to warn people that when you start DD:Neon, you immediately unlock an achievement for 1GS after pressing Start. I got a review copy, and almost stopped the review right there because it pissed me off so much. However, it actually ended up fixing my GamerScore, so I let it slide (just a warning to those who are obsessed with 0's and 5's being in the end of their scores).

42! Such an strange amount. I have 50, so I am thinking I will always have 10 points I can never spend.

You're probably not as OCD as some of us. Thanks for the warning! It definitely bothers me if my score is not 5 or 0.

I'd rather be on a 0-5 pace with my gamerscore, but it doesn't bug me if I'm not (like I am now).

How many days did it take for MS to take the points back from those accounts that still had excess points available ? I'm also one of the many people that got 1,600 points added. (Although I'm already supposed to get 400pts from the SOA promotion & 240pts from last month's sports promo = 640 total)
I would go on a shopping spree to use the extra points THEY gave, but I just purchased an extra 4000pts a few days ago, and I don't want them debiting my account from those.
It's a pretty bad practice, (if you ask me), from a well known, multi billion dollar company to go back and take away points from people's accounts. (ESPECIALLY since they made the same mistake last year, and apparently didn't fix whatever they were supposed to !) :shame:
I kinda like to think of it as if you're at a store, and you pick up an item from the shelf based on the price that's marked on it, and then you go to the register and it rings up a higher price. The store should honor the mistake in the customer's favor.
OR think of it like the airline "EL AL" who had a glitch on their web site last month, and offered people a fare of $350 on roundtrip flights from New York to Tel Aviv. They honored their mistake.

** If they take all 1600 points back, who do people contact to get the either 400 (from SOA), 240 (from August XBL Rewards promo), OR BOTH amounts put back in their accounts ?! (PUH-LEASE don't say writing the support forum on the xbox website !):headache: Surely there's a phone #.

I think it's such a bad practice of a multi-billion dollar company to be giving away free money. Sure, mistakes happen once in a while, but random points showing up in people's accounts happens all the time. Microsoft is so tight with their points structure and pricing on games, to be giving away points is just moronic and should be unacceptable. I've never heard of PSN crediting people money incorrectly.

I'm happy for all the people who got the free money (I'd spend them in a second if I actually got them) but I just wonder WTF Microsoft is doing for this to happen so frequently...

I'm enjoying Double Dragon: Neon so far. It's a pretty good old school beat 'em up. I like it more than Scott Pilgrim which was supposed to be something similar. I might be bias since I really loved playing it on the NES and in the arcades.

Those with odd achiev scores, play civilization. It has some quickly popping, odd numbered achievs to get your score back on track. I'm not super ocd about my weird score now, but it would be nice to have it back to 5/0.

I don't have that problem anymore, I used to, it's a form of OCD. I know people that go absolutely insane over that when it happens, so I figured I'd just give a warning. I stopped caring about GS / achievements when I hit 100k (and that was 64k ago).

Unrelated to just about everything ever posted in this thread, but I never realized The UnderGarden was only 240 MSP and had achievements. And this is the regular price for it. If anyone knows of any other really cheap games with achievements, please post them and hopefully we'll get a list going. Or if a list has already been posted, please link me to it. I've got some achievin' to do to get my GS up. :D

By the way, the last time I posted I asked what I should get for 400MSP. I ended up with Raskulls. The multiplayer aspect really sold me on it. :D
