Does anyone know if the XBLA version of CS:GO got the map updates that the PC version got last week?


I've heard people say that the console versions didn't get the patch.

Thanks. I thought that was probably the case since I couldn't find anything on the Internet that said it had gotten it. I will wait on buying it then to see how they handle supporting it in the future. This isn't a good start so far.

Hopefully it doesn't turn into another Orange Box situation where the console versions are abandoned, but that looks like the path it's headed down.

Short. It's maybe 1/3 to 1/2 as long as the main game IIRC. Basically more of the same but with a winter theme. I'd recommend it if you enjoyed the main game.

Is the community still active or is it only when it goes on sale?

Two months ago i wasn't able to find any games at all. Probably there are few players around when the game goes on sale.
I can't recommend this game if you do not have any friends who have it.

Hell yeah it is. You get new costumes and its more costume quest. You def. get your $2.50 worth of fun from the dlc.

I can't believe its been a whole year already. I remember asking on this thread myself if costume quest was worth it. It became top 10 favorite arcade games for me.

During peak times I'm always able to find a game within 10 minutes or so. It does still have a community. You would need Rise of the Martian Bear to increase your chances of being able to play with people though.

Correct me but the Spook-tacular rewards only includes movies?
all I see are movies
I've been wanting to get costume quest for some time now so I wanted to know if this will count towards the promotion


and which one is better costume quest or iron brigade? I only have 600 msp to spare at the moment


I personally think Costume Quest is way better. If you are looking to play some online co-op, go with Iron Brigade. If you are more of a single player gamer, go with Costume Quest.

I did a full solo playthrough of Iron Brigade/Trenched when it released and enjoyed it. I'm sure coop is a better experience, but for only 400 points I wouldn't write it off just for that, especially if you like tower defense. I gave up trying to get that final gold medal by myself though as it seemed impossible without help. Also a good chunk of the achievements (~ 1/3) are tied to multiplayer.

CQ DLC is worth it if you couldn't get enough of the base game. Just keep in mind you will be able to 100% it in 1.5-2 hours max so it's pretty short. Still easy to recommend if you loved CQ.

I'm still debating whether I want the Stacking or Iron Brigade DLCs. I did enjoy the base games, but I'm not sure if I'm looking for more of the same with them.

Again, it's just a few hours of pretty much more of the same thing (like with Stacking), but with more costumes, enemies, and achievements. I say it's worth it, especially since it's on sale.

It looks like Happy Wars is late going live. People who already downloaded the game (beta, review codes, etc.) can apparently invite others to the game and allow them to download it, but the actual download link isn't on the game's store page yet. Does anyone have a link that goes straight to the game download?

The original game had three environments/levels. The DLC is basically a fourth environment/level.

The October promo for Xbox Live Rewards is for horror-themed content not any-ol' Halloween content; and no, it's games and dlc as well, but they refuse to give specifics anymore (I'm just turning into "that guy" on here, aren't I?) but there's a whole thread devoted to ongoing XBL Rewards here.

Re-download the game from beta tab and you'll be fine. You can't start it, because the final version of the game is available. :)

nvm! I though IB was 600 msp lol I'll be buying IR then. I haven't seen CQ go below 600 so I'll wait for it even if I have to wait another year

I searched for it both under H and through the Bing search, but I think I only ever found the trailer. I'll check again when I get home.

Yeah its been active for weeks in the beta, and achievements have been active in it for about one week in the beta.

You wanna take a run at it together Tyler? I haven't tried the game actually working with anyone yet, its just a mess of everyone doing their own thing.

You have to get it from the Beta tab on the actual dash atm.

Thanks man, I wouldn't have thought to check there.

I don't think I'm gonna join ya, after playing the tutorial and training, I just don't think this game is for me. I also can't even get into a multiplayer game to save my ass, I keep getting booted from the lobby.

No worries, its a bit of a clusterfuck anyway for the most part. You get steamrolled by players utilizing any sort of cooperation.

I just need something to do while I take a hiatus from BL2 until the DLC next week. So bored.
