Ya I finally got in a couple and it's a definite clusterfuck. I mean, I seriously can't complain considering it's free, but I don't think I'll be back to it often.

I had fun with it. Easy 400 GS. Not sure if I'll go back to it either since I'm done with the achievements lol.

From how popular Skyrim is, it will be a VERY long time, or even never.

The two expansion packs keep going on sale. All the other stuff only went on sale once a couple years ago and I'm still kicking myself for missing it.

Haha I guess my sarcasm wasn't strong enough. I was poking fun at the fact that it's really just a matter of time since Bethesda DLCs go on sale pretty frequently.

The real question is "Is there more DLC coming for Skyrim?", because the likelihood of a sale is minimal until all the DLC has been out for at least a few months.

Zen Studios announced standalone DLC for Marvel Pinball called Civil War at a New York Comic Con panel. The theme for this pinball table was taken from a multi-part comic event from 2006 of the same name that pitted Iron Man and Captain America against each other.

No specific release date was given for the DLC, though the trailer above teases that it's "coming soon" to PSN, XBLA, Apple's App Store and the Google Play store.

Nice, been looking forward to this table. Love that storyline. It's the storyline feature in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2.

Maybe we'll get a Winter Soldier table down the line with the announcement of Captain America 2: Winter Soldier?

Would be totally down for that.

Anyone else hoping there will be another free halloween table like there was last year with "Paranormal"?

Agreed, thanks for the heads up!

Also, A World of Keflings is super addicting. Anyone with A World of Keflings feel free to add me for the online achievements.

Walk into your local GameStop, and you'll find rather than stocking a huge number of single-use DLC cards, they've begun to stock MS point cards in $5 increments, including:
  • 400
  • 800
  • 1200
  • 1600
Once they show up at other B&M retailers, this will make it simpler for me to get the precise amount to maximize savings during Fred Meyer's (aka Kroegers) stackable coupon events. :D

Oblivion DLC has been on sale before, as recently as July.

But acquiring the 2nd disc in the GOTY editions of Oblivion, Fallout 3, or Fallout NV is far cheaper (and more convenient) than buying the DLC separately.

That's what I did last Night actually, I had 2 $5 off coupons So I bought 800 Microsoft points for $5 and Fallout 3 new vegas ultimate edition for $30. Since I have the extra points I may go ahead and snag up Keflings DLC but then again Im still haven't beat the last dlc they released. which i am half way through it and it's really fun. I read a review of the new one looks awesome a Candy Theme world and buildings to build is really cool.

On a different note does anybody know if there is a website or even here on CAG a list of all the game of the year editions/ ultimate editons / limited etc that would be great if so. cause majority of the time it's easier to wait to buy GOTY edition when it's reduced versus buying the content separate on xbox live... just an idea

See if this helps. Posting from phone so I hope this link is right.

Fixed link, no idea why it removed the O, all i did was copy paste from android browser.

Hmm, using mobile site, I will try to figure out tomorrow why my links don't work. In the meantime if you want to just google it this is the title of the thread:

I started playing a World of Keflings earlier today and I have to say it was very enjoyable. I'm looking forward to playing more of it later and probably getting the dlc.


I'm happy with all these sales lately, many great prices on a decent selection of games. I still have to pick up all the toy soldiers dlc as well as swarm and quarrel from the sales app

Thanks for the tip!

I was going to get just Toy Soldiers and Quarrel (already have Renegade Ops and Toy Soldiers Cold War), but now I may "splurge" and get Swarm too. :)

Swarm for $2.50 is an insane value. Don't let the price make you think it's indie-game'ish ... it's bargain-priced only because the publisher (UTV Ignition) has a curse of investing in "new & creative IP" that just doesn't pan out, and then Ignition dumps the game for bargain prices to keep sales numbers up. Remember that any review scores you find are assuming the game would cost $10 against other new XBLA releases, not for less then the cost of a (Starbucks) cup of coffee ... and isn't that the standard measure by which all things are valued? :D

All 3 of UTV's games ...
  • Quarrel: where "Scrabble" meets "Risk":
    Posted Image
    -
  • Swarm: where "World of Goo" meets "real-time strategy":
    Posted Image
    -
  • Mercury: where "Marble Blast Ultra" meets "still available on XBLA":
    Posted Image
... deserve to be purchased at a price less than similarly-polished mobile games. The latter of which would then subsequently bother you for IAP's, of course. :lol:
