also if you missed joe danger don't worry. i played it for like an hour, it sucked. which i kind of should have knew before getting it, but, eh i'll give any game a shot if it's free. But yeah it's really lame in my opinion, i don't enjoy it any more than crash course (which is free to anyone). i'd seriously rather play excitebike.


Its fine if you don't enjoy the game as everyone has different tastes, but to draw any kind of comparison to JD 1 or 2 with Crash Course is ludicrous. There's depth and quality in the Danger series.

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

 

Hey i just realized canniac bruh has my post in his sig, nice!

Kind of late to the party, but just finished Dust: An Elysian Tail. Great game, had an enjoyable 14 hours with it. I wouldn't consider any of this spoilers, but I'll throw it behind a spoiler tag just in case:

Spoiler


Also, I'm once again able to confirm that I play games slow as hell. On my friends leaderboard of 6 people (all CAGs) I'm 5th in Completion %, 5th in wealth, 5th in enemies defeated, but have the 2nd longest play time.

Anyone have any clue if the Chronicles of Riddick is a permanent drop or just a deal of the week? I think I'll get some more points if it's going back up to 1600 msp.

Also I'd assume Escape from Butcher Bay is included, but can anyone confirm it?

Agreed. That is a ridiculous comparison likely based entirely off the art style. I'm only a few levels into Joe Danger 2, but the first one got nearly Trials-esque in terms of difficulty towards the end without ever feeling cheap. It was fun and difficult to get those runs where you picked up every item without crashing and recording the requisite high score, etc.

And not that critical reception is the end-all.... but the first game received 86 and 88 scores on metacritic (PS3 original release, and XBOX special edition release).

What do you guys think of astro pop worth 5?


Indeed, but frustrating at times and it is challenging. It is a fun game and got me addicted. Played it for 2 hours straight and after awhile, just gave up and moved on to my backlog lol..

My question is, is there anything worth purchasing? I have lots of MS Points and nothing has caught my eye. I was thinking of getting I Am Alive but am seeing mixed reviews and don't know of anything else to buy.

Sometimes I play games pretty slow too, especially if I really like it and/or know that I won't be going back to play it anytime soon if ever. That's something I really like about gaming, if I want to spend more time with a game I'm enjoying I can in many cases.

Yes. Lots of fun. Challenging and addicting. Just be aware that it is not an easy completion for achievements. I think I only have about 70/200 points, and that was after completing all four quests and then some.

I second that for the completion thing. It's really challenging to max it out. Totally worth 400msp tho.

It's one of the better PopCap games. I have more fun with this compared to Zuma, Heavy Weapon and Bejeweled.

What's the SPECTAT Bundle for BFBC2? I've got deals 1 & 3 already so I can get 2 & 4 for the price of #2. What's the #4 stuff anyway, it looks like it's just unlocking kits early. Any BFBC2 pros in here?

i cannot confirm 100%. but i have been interested in buying this game and i have read multiple sources that indicate the GoD version includes both athena and butcher bay.

The SPECACT bundle contains different camouflaged uniforms and some new guns skins plus some new achievements tied to specific in game SPECACT awards/pins.

I bought it at the time of its release because of the extra achievements but also so I could change the damn Medic's uniform so he wouldn't be sticking out like a sore thumb with his red beret!

#4 Yep, you just unlock all the guns, perks etc early without needing to grind XP. (Although it's pretty easy to unlock stuff since you unlock everything by level 22).

Thanks! That's most helpful. I had avoided the SPECTAT stuff cause I had gotten free SPECTAT stuff through the DR Pepper free content program, but if it's more camo and has achievements, why not? I like unlocking stuff in games sometimes, but on the other hand when everyone is way ranked over you it begins to feel unfair when you get too disadvantaged, like in Max Payne 3 and to a lesser extent CoD.

It's the same exact thing as the dr.pepper promotion. If you already have that then don't buy the spectat bundle.

Really? Thanks. Are the achievements obtainable with getting the content thru the Dr Pepper promo or do have to buy the bundle to unlock them? So the question becomes do I want to pay that price for some achievements and to unlock weapons early...

. If you already have the dr.pepper promo redeemed to your account then you already have access to the weapons, skins and achievements. The achievement comes from getting 25 kills with the weapons. I can't remember the exact achievement details. In short, if you already have the 4 dr.pepper unlocks, you'll just be wasting points buying this.

Edit you ninja'd my reply. Yeah they're unlocked already with the dr. Pepper promo

When looking at your classes in game. Under each class there will also be the spectat kit below it. It'll say assault then assault spectat. Or something like that. Like I said its been a while since I've played.

Thanks again, man. That makes sense, I'm just not too familiar with it as I've hardly touched BFBC2's mp. You saved me some hard earned MSP!

I'll still get Bejeweled 3 at 400 points.

Not quite related to XBLA ... but Fry's currently has a killer deal on a Microsoft Refurbished 4gb/Kinect bundle for only $200 here:
http://www.frys.com/product/6992937

Posted Image

If you're going to buy used, then MS-refurb'd is the way to go, since this includes the following:
  • Long burn-in test to ensure the system works correctly without heat issues.
  • Same warranty as new 360's & Kinects.
  • New power brick, controllers, and cables.

I currently have an older 1st-gen unit in my family room, and have been scoping out a 2nd unit to install in the "wife-approval / non-gaming" zone called my living room. The fact it's a quiet 2nd-gen 360, plus includes Kinect for voice-navigation in VOD apps like Netflix, makes this a solid purchase decision!

At a download size of 6.74GB, it's a sure-thing this game includes Butcher Bay, since the graphic fidelity of Dark Athena isn't that great. :-)

Just to add to the Astropop love,my sister loved it so much she got 200/200 on it,and I know it had to be a pain in the ass. She also said Bejeweled 3 and Zumas revenge was really good,even with the pain in the ass Iron frog achievement,lol.
Heavy Weapon was one of my first games getting for my 360. It was amazing at the time,not sure if it still is since its been at least 3+ (maybe 4?) years since I've played it.
