All I remember about Captain America and the Avengers and all I remember hearing when I play that game is "NOOO!" "NOOO!" "NOOO!"

The Avengers arcade game was made by Data East, who went bankrupt a few years back.

Another company would have to purchase the rights to The Avengers to get it out today.

I've always been curious why do the same codes always appear at the same time in the xbl market place.

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


Really glad to see cheap Earthworm Jim codes here. Just got one. :)

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.

to many good memories and playing every so often is good. i might pay 15-20 for dd at this point. i wish they add as a unlock in neon. also neon is unknown if fun yet it looks it but looking and being is two different things.

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.

can u buy ingame trial?

Uh...count me as one who thought the Captain America game was boring. A chore to play through today but xmen I can play over and over again.

Glad I saw this thread, I picked up some of the Forza 4 car packs while they're on sale. Going to get the porsche dlc pack tomorrow.

Is Gears of War 3 RAMM's shadow worth it? I see it's also on sale 50% off, but 600pts seems a little steep. My friend and I were literally going to go through the campaign co-op tomorrow, so if the DLC is worthwhile I might pick it up today while it's on sale, seeing's how we're about to dive into the game.

I'm only really interested in RAMM's shadow for the extra campaign missions, as I don't intend to play multiplayer whatsoever.

It's pretty fun you play as raam if you're player 1 and 3 new COG characters. Follow's Minh story line pre-GOW 1

Avengers was corny as hell, and that's probably one reason why I'd insta-buy.

But what of the Spider-Man arcade game? You fight Giant Venom in the first level!

What's not to love. Plus shyguys are your basic enemies!!

Yeah, somebody should really license and rerelease both Captain America & The Avengers and SEGA's Spider-Man. Loved both games, especially Spidey.

playxbla.com does a Weekend Achievement thing where they will announce a couple achievements from a couple games and if you get the set amount you win game codes.

http://playxbla.com/...eeve-challenge/


So do you have to get each achievement listed for all 3 games? Or just get all the achievements for one of the games listed? Sorry,just a little confused about it.


Edit: nvm,just read the rules. So you can choose 1,2, or 3 games or however many you'll like,then just get any 7 achievements from the games you to choose to play?

Underneath the pictures of the games for the challenge, they have several achievements listed (I think 3 per game in this case). Those are the achievements that count toward the weekend challenge.

Yeah, so basically you have to own all three games and get achievements in each of them (of the ones listed on the site) to add up to 7. Pretty low chances of qualifying unless you buy a ton of XBLA games. Thankfully, this is CAG so some people do buy a ton, and then others can buy codes from them.

Quick Q about PlayXBLA. I get all of the info about what it takes except one thing. Do I need to earn said achievements on that weekend? Like if I have a game already completed from weeks/months/whatever prior to the weekend challenge do they still count toward the prize?

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

You just need to have earned them by the end of the contest - the actual dates don't matter.

It's definitely better if you own 3, but if you only own 2, it could still be worth it to buy the 3rd (either from the CAG Marketplace or just pay full price) and still make it work.

I didn't go for it this week (because of one of The Splatters achievements) but I owned Splatters and South Park, so I could have bought Dragon's Lair and got the 7 achievements I needed. I didn't need either of the prize codes, but should have been able to sell them for about $7, thus turning Dragon's Lair into a $3 purchase. Not an amazing deal, but still justifiable to the right person.

Remember hearing about that a while back. It does look really awesome.

It's not mentioned cause it's just not that good. Konami's X-men looks and plays much better & those 6 player cabinets were boss!

I'd love to see this come to XBLA though
