Here's the prop you get after the sign up:
http://marketplace.x...c2-b5045858081c
It's a skateboard that doesn't look good but free is free. They send a verification email so you can't use a fake one but you can opt out of receiving their emails. I just used one of my junk email accounts.

I'm good with the skateboard! Looks like XBL is using your "region" as the flag whether to get into Windows Phone or not, such as I'm now in the "US+WP" region, I guess, which locks out anyone else from clicking on WP-exclusive links like phone apps, etc.

I don't always buy :360: points, but when I do, I click this CrazyGameTime affiliate link below
Cornelius's gamercard, so CGT will forward 2% of the proceeds so he can buy more points!

BTw IF you own the Ms. Splosion Man Table for Pinball FX2 there's a tournament going on right now until May 25th...with prizes...a buddy of mine is currently rank 1 named OrpheusWueste with over 6 billion points...I just dropped down to rank 728 from Rank 215 with about 154 million points lol..but well there's a random draw beside the top 3....

Just wanted to let you know

I went ahead and bought Fusion : Genesis (or is it Genesis : Fusion, I seriously can't remember which -- terrible name) while it's still on sale. It's not earth-shaking by any means, but it's a nice little game with hours of gameplay. I didn't much care for the demo, which had a lot of hand-holding, but the game itself has a lot of content and grinding. If you want to, you could play for a long, long time upgrading ships and weapons. They have a persistent online world that's pretty sparse of course and an auction house for rare in-game items. Overall it's an impressive little package if you like that sort of space-sim game.

I played the demos of Orcs Must Die and Iron Brigade. Having play Orcs Must Die on Steam already, I couldn't shake the feeling of it being a PC game so I'll pass.

Iron Brigade did nothing for me. Maybe because it's just a demo, but I think I'm going to pass on this for the time being and pick it up when it drops to 400.

Check the trading forum. A lot of people are going to have Iron Brigade up today for cheap.

Iron Brigade and Earthworm Jim were the PlayXBLA codes? Man I'm glad I didn't end up going for it.

Yes, the Family Game Night games dropped but the online servers are gone so you better have some people to play with in your living room. Games like Connect 4 and Jenga are fine locally but sharing a screen for Battleship or Scrabble doesn't make a lot of sense.


That sucks. I used to like to play scrabble with people online. At least there's still words with friends.

Earthworm Jim was fun, loved going for the beat the game in 50 minutes achievement, you can only die once or twice to make it in that time and it made the game really intense, one of the most fun I've had marathoning an old school game until I was almost bulletproof in it. Unfortunately the beating it with one life thing is just a joke to me thanks to the spike part of buttville.

Is the microsoft sale going to end tomorrow do you guys think? I need to pick up some reach maps, but my points card hasn't come in the mail yet, might have to just buy more points if it ends tonight...speaking of which is it worth buying the maps besides anniversary? i don't play firefight, just online games with a guest usually, not sure if if noble and the other $5 pack are worth the cheese or not, seems like only one game type uses them?

Also any word if the sega classics collection are going to have LIVE play? i'd love to play streets of rage 1 and 3 online, if they aren't online though then no reason at all to pick those up imo.

Well that page says that they all have online multiplayer, so that's reason enough. I guess I might as well delete streets of rage 2 off my hard drive though i guess..

That would be because it's not there. I'll shoot ReddJoey a PM to add it.

Yes, we know it will be ending tomorrow.

Beyond Good and Evil HD? It's not supposed to be on sale until tomorrow. I'm sure redjoey will update it then.

Yes they are. As someone who doesn't play online often, I don't have a lot of desire to renew my Gold subscription just for the deals, as all the best deals seem to be open to everyone anyway.

i want double dragon soooo bad wish there was a way to get to...


I've played the arcade & Nintendo versions countless times in the past; at this point I think I'm more excited to see how Double Dragon Neon turns out (new whispers of Battletoads DLC, even) rather than trying to replay the same old same old. I'm in the very miniscule minority who liked Turtles Re:shelled more than the TMNT 1990 classic.

Last but not least: why no re-release of Captain America & The Avengers Arcade? That was a much better game than X-men, but I've never heard anyone mention it.

C.A. & Avengers?...yes! yes! please! I buy that. On the other side of the coin I wish the Double Dragon game was still up. I still have the trial on my hard drive. I hoping Neon will be good, but something in me isn't holding out any hope.
