I'd definitely pick up a Midway collection and forgot they de-listed those titles. Today I got the Capcom Digital Collection, Dreamcast Collection and Kirby's Dream Collection in from Amazon so obviously I'm a fan of those!

So I ended up getting Astropop today and decided to wait on Bejeweled 3 to get it with Zuma's Revenge once that disc goes on sale. Then my PopCap collection will be complete.

And I can't believe that Rock Band sale. It's insane! After the back to school sale, those collections and grabbing Borderlands 2 tonight my wallet is weeping. Time to buy some points! After that I hope to avoid any more game purchases for awhile.

Just saw XBLDB update with Rock Band stuff. It begins...

Also, the hell are we going to do about the OP this week? I mean I have free time but not THAT much free time, lol.

Gonna at least dig around to see what non-Rock Band stuff is on sale. Looking like RB DLC is the DotW..

Edit: Also, I don't remember if someone talked about wanting it released on XBLA in the past but the Killer Instinct trademark was just renewed by Microsoft.

Cool. I'm in for Fable Heroes.

As for the RB DLC sale, you can just link to it in the OP.

I'm surprised the Missing Link DLC isn't on sale again, I'll pick up Fable Heroes for 400 though.

must be an error with missing link dlc as why would it be there?

there could also be more with the fable heroes on sale as it is weird for it to be on sale on its own

Here is the link to the PDF for the RB sale.

The Fable Heroes sale isn't that weird since the demo for Fable Journey just came out and Fable Heroes connects with Fable Journey. I think you can transfer gold or something. So I think they are trying to promote that which is why it's an instant buy for me.

I just finished up DXHR, including Missing Link, and I enjoyed it. I got it on sale LAST MONTH. Really?

Particularly silly because it's gold exclusive this time around (it wasn't last month). It would be less ridiculous the other way around (if gold got sales before the rest of folks).

Disappointing.

I would want to see a Capcom sale again with both Mega Man games included. Don't know how i missed to buy them before. :roll:

Wow, tempted by Dragon's Lair even if I already own multiple copies of the game for other platform, mostly for nostalgia factor... since I saw the "Arcade Kinect" label on its cover, can anybody confirm that it's controller-friendly too as I still haven't bite on the flailing arms peripheral?

Yes, Dragon's Lair is controller-friendly. It's one of those "better with kinect" titles. I have a friend that has all the achievements in it and he doesn't own kinect.

I've been waiting for a third strike online sale for what feels like forever. With the anniversary collection coming out this week I was crossing my fingers. Hope capcom has a sale soon too.

I'm trying to decide this as well. I want to try it just because it's one of those classic games for being ahead of its time, but on the other hand, it's pretty much Quick-Time Event: The Video Game. I'm 1/2 tempted to just skip & save the money for MvC Origins, JSR, Nights, & SA2.

To be honest even with Nostalgia Goggles equipped it is hardly a good "game"...it's more of a short interactive movie, so you just could see the 5 minutes on youtube lol

As someone who poured a lot of quarters into it with my dad back in the day...youtube it.

Unless you have friends, a kinect and booze. Drink after every death = good times.

I already got The Missing Link on sale. Does anyone have an opinion on the two weapons packs?

I'm pretty sure I'll pick up Fable Heroes and Dragon's Lair... Plus a million RB tracks.

Nice, thanks! I'll grab it when Xbox.com starts working again, then... :)

In my opinion, it's worth only if you share an emotional bond with it, as if you want to simply watch the scenes and its ending you'll be perfectly fine watching a longplay on Youtube instead, preferably in HD :)

The game is... not a game at all: it's a roughly 30 minute QTE session, so if you have not experienced its first coming in the arcades where it completely destroyed all its pixel-fueled rivals and didn't have to go through an endless queue just to put your quarter in and die 10 seconds later, then I highly doubt you'll end up liking it.

Still, it IS a piece of videogame history, so maybe you'll deem it worthy at least for this :)

Wow, next week's DotW looks pretty good... marvel stuff in pinball fx2, xmen arcade and marvel v capcom 2 and add ons for 3. Too bad I already own ALL OF IT. >_< First time I've ever seen a dotw with all good stuff that I already own.

Also, wish there was a ms publisher sale to go with the fable heroes and dragon's lair... there are several games from that same time period I would love to see a sale on (joy ride turbo, SVC's, etc).

I already have LCGoL and have been wanting PA so I'll pick that up. Zombies MD looks okay so I'll probably pass.

For next week's DotW I'll grab whatever Pinball FX2 tables I don't have so at least Captain America. I'm not sure if I have the other two. And I already have MvC2 and X-Men.

Dragon's Lair has never been, and never will be a good "game". It's a novelty at best. If you need a tool to give your memory a little workout then it may have some value for you. If those 400 points are burning a hole in your pocket then pick it up, you'll satisfy your curiosity and earn some achievements in the process. Gameplay however is definitely not satisfying.

Fable heroes on sale until October 15th?? Might as well just make it a price drop. Unless MajorNelson made a typo (happens all the time).
Is it even worth 400 points? Lots of hate for the game and I don't think I've seen 1 positive post about it thus far.

Dragon's Lair is terrible. I didn't have a bond with it in the arcades, though I was certainly an arcade gamer then. It's just a memorization game. You'll have a lot more fun playing Simon.

Yeah have seen this too, maybe longer promo for Fable Journey hum..anyway I should have waited then and maybe bought it in october with new xbox rewards options lol...

For the game itself I've been told that the game is much fun as long as you have friends to play with...(kinda Mario Party-style) question is..do you have friends? =P lol
