In for Beyond Good and Evil HD.
Thanks OP


Yeah, I first bought Trenched and DLC (I dont want to call it Iron Brigade) then Beyond Good and Evil HD. I passed up that game once a number of years ago, played the trial and was impressed even for an old title.

Now i'm slightly angry with myself for not picking up the anniversary map pack.

Just won a copy of JoyRide :D! Looking forward to checking it out tonight.


If XBLA Joyride is basically Joyride with a controller with few real improvements, then a much better karting game is Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. They even have a Games on Demand version if you don't want a disc version (though the disc version is a bit cheaper).

Picked up Outland. Such a good game in the Metroid style gameplay, but with an Ikaruga spin on it. I'm up to the second boss and it has been totally worth the 400msp.

I picked up Outland this morning still debating on Clash. I can't wait until tomorrow though for the Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World. Of course everytime I think of Wonder Boy in Monster World I am reminded of this song:

Clash of Heroes was a no-brainer at $15 and it's a steal at half that for a 35 hour game, not counting MP.

Nothing for me this week. All repeats and games I have. BG & E was a steal at $3 during Black Friday.

The whole camera-unable-to-invert-issue-has got that game on the bottom of my backlog. I'll get to it in 2014....in December

I already own Outland (Great Game) and Beyond Good and Evil (Haven't played it yet lol)

I'm considering Might and Magic, but I just don't think that battle system really interests me...

I had absolutely no interest in Might and Magic's battle system. I wasn't even going to bother trying it after watching video. I ended up giving it a shot and really, really liked it. Of course I only finished about 2/5 of the game despite liking it I'd so much. I'd rather sit on the couch with it on my laptop/tablet while watching something on my TV. The game is like 25 hours long, slow paced, and I do not care about what's going on with the story. It's just not how I want to play it.

One of these days I'll get it on Steam and finish it, because I do really want to.

I picked up BG&E today, can't believe I missed the BF deal. I already had Outland from the last time it was on sale. Now because I lack self control I'm going to pick up M&M.

I believe it was released on the DS if memory serves correctly.

Played a demo of Clash of Heroes and it's a type of game that I can see myself having fun with, but I'm gonna have to skip it. It's just that the frequency of the loading screen is too much. You load before a battle, after a battle, and before and after a cutscene. It was a deal breaker for me.

Buying both Sega Vintage Collections today and probably will skip Golden Axe and Streets of Rage ones, since i already got these games on Sega Ultimate collection disc.

btw I hope at some point playxbla give away Rocket Knight codes.

I won a copy on Monday so I'll be around, although probably not these weekend. So far, it's been fun. Think Kinect Joy Ride with a controller. For $10, it's worth it. For the eventual $5 sale, it's a steal.

I might get Joy Ride Turbo, but I have the feeling it'll be on sale sooner or later (same goes for the Sega Vintage Collections). & I've already got a HUGE backlog of 10+ games as it is already. Though I'm interested in hearing if it's good or not.

My experience with kart racers since Super Mario Kart for the SNES has been very limited, so my opinion might not be worth much, but after a few hours with it Joy Ride Turbo seems better than any of the others that I've demoed on the service. It's also a bit too easy against the AI. I look forward to trying it out online where hopefully I won't be in first place for the entire race and actually get to use the weapons a bit more. There aren't a ton of tracks and despite there being a couple of dozen cars, none of them feel that much different. Still, it's fun to play and if you want a kart racer on XBLA, this is probably the best you'll do. I do think the online will be the final judge though.

This week's DOTW is literally all the games I have been waiting for another drop!

I am super excited, I never pick up every item from the DOTW but I have this time. I am especially looking forward to Clash of the Heroes.

I'm tempted by BG&EHD. With the recent announcement that the game's sequel is getting done for next gen consoles and I haven't played the original before, I'm interested.

I've heard it's a cult hit. How long is it? How good is it?

About 10-15 hours to finish up everything. Very good.

Tomorrow two XBLIG will be on sale through the Because We May indie game promotion. They are Blocks That Matter and Pingvinas. Both are normally $3 but I don't know what the sale prices will be. There are a ton of other games for a variety of platforms as well.

On the Xbox page it shows Pingvinas as 80 MSP already. Is this the sale price then?

Perhaps they already flipped their switches. As of today Microsoft is allowing indie devs to alter their game pricing more frequently.
