Not sure about Viva, I never played any of them and I really with this were the first one.


Viva Pinata is like a crappy mario party type game and nothing like the other Viva Pinata games. A lot of it is racing if I remember. Its pretty lame but depending how many people you had to play it then it might be worth 5 bucks. Kids with low videogame standards might get some enjoyment out of it.

I've pass on Bomberman Act Zero at 2.99 I had friends in real life say horrible things about it so I know its most likely a pos.

It seems like most are launch title games or are around from 2006-2008. If COD 2 was in the mix, then we would have a set, but there's no motherfucking way activison lets a COD game be sold for less than $10, No fucking way

Or Quake 4, which Bethesda is re-releasing

Condemned: Criminal Origins (search this or its sequel out if you haven't already, great games built from the ground up for Xbox 360),

King Kong (a first person adventure game made by the same dude who did Beyond Good and Evil and Rayman Origins)

Gun (great western made by the same company who did Tony Hawk games)

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (EA would never let their games be priced this low)

Project Gotham Racing 3 (RIP Bizarre Creations)

Sorry for the long winded list, but Microsoft has a lot more games to choose from for future sales of these types.

Bionic Commando and PoP (Except for both endings) are pretty good.

Facebreaker, I am indifferent about. I enjoyed what it tried to do, it is unique as hell in the fighting genre but I do not think I can say it succeeded. The online servers are dEAd too.

Perfect Dark Zero is $5 everywhere. You could do worse but also better.

The less people that play Conan the better, especially with the past few week's feminism kick

Good grief, there's been a feminism kick this past week? No wonder the internets have been so intolerable these past couple of days.

Any sign of this bullshit dying down? I'd hate to be hit by any more drive by gender theory majors.

We're starting with launch titles and C list games, so you'll have to wait at least two years before we get to 2011 games.

Because those are good games that are probably selling just fine.

The reason these old crappy games went on sale is because they weren't moving any copies at full price.

oh shit if Most wanted was part of this sale, I would be so happy. Hell ill be content with pgr3. Man getting PoP for 320 MSP sounds sweet, but then at the same time not really. Thats should be the motto for being an xbox live member.

Posted 15 June 2012 - 12:37 AM

Besides the fact that you can't save or even use passwords, there wasn't one other legitimate complaint that would turn me off of that game (I wouldn't play it local MP anyway). "OMG the picture of the fireball isn't smiling anymore OH NO!"

Actually made me want to try it out for $5. Are the controls ok?

EDIT: The achievements look grindy and stupid.


Act Zero's Achievements are incredibly grindy, yes. Don't expect to ever get 1,000 from it.

Did you know I have the largest Bomberman collection in the world? I wish I could find the pictures of my collection from Hudson's site, but it shut down.

Anyway, I played this game quite a lot because the gameplay is actually quite good (arguably better than the Bomberman Live games). But there are tons of obvious problems including the lack of local multiplayer and horrendous load times that show Hudson Japan simply didn't care about this one. Single-player is really not bad as long as you have the time for it (~2 hours). I don't know if I'd recommend Act Zero - maybe if you want to play a more obscure game and you're kind of forgiving. Otherwise, Bomberman Live Battlefest is a much better buy if only because the load times are way better.

Just gonna chime in here but I own Viva Piniata Party Animals...my 5 yeard old girl enjoyed the demo and if I had it on GOD she'd probably play it. We played a little bit together and it's not bad. Racing and other mini games but with your kid it can be enjoyable. Just not as many kid friendly games on the xbox...

If you can find some of these games cheaper on disc then I imagine that's the way to go but for the achievement whores, I've bought arcade titles for the same prices just to get 200...

Definitely nothing exciting in the GoD sale, but some good deals regardless. I thought GRAW was excellent, but its been a few years since I've played it. Rockstar Table Tennis also is really good for what it is: a ping pong game. I have also heard many great things about Prince of Persia and Kameo, but they've both been in my backlog for awhile, along with Perfect Dark Zero and Conan.

I'll definitely buy Tornado Outbreak and Blazing Angels. I've thought about buying both of those used for awhile now, but always decided against it due to my backlog. I might also get Dark Void, Bionic Commando, and Sega Superstar Tennis.

Damn, after waiting and thinking about buying Tornado Outbreak for the longest time, I bit on it on the GoHastings sale. It was only a dollar extra, which for a disc version of the game certainly isn't the worst thing. But still, figures the day I buy it, I find out it goes on sale for slightly cheaper. This is definitely a step in the right direction though, I certainly don't mind waiting to get Crysis/RE/Deathsmiles 2 for a discount like this.

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

Never payed to much attention to the GoD prices but I knew they were all to expensive but looking at this sale list I'm realizing just how bad it is, you know your service sucks when the 75% off sale makes them the normal price you can get them in stores.

RE: DJ Hero and Guitar Hero sales.

They had a random bunch of these at a lower price a few weeks back. Could be just a random unadvertised sale that they're doing. I'm just glad I was able to pick up some cheap DJ Hero track packs.

Just tried three demos, VP party animals, blazing angels, and Conan. Party animals is like a generic Mario party so that is a maybe for me now. Blazing angels is definitely worth $5. And Conan is not getting any money from me.I'll also get PoP, only played the retail copy once then got rid of it. Kind of want to play that again.

I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of account hacking was used to buy games on demand. You only need the gamertag long enough to download a couple of games onto your console and then you can play with your own. It's probably a hell of a lot safer than stealing physical copies. I'm going to assume the people who do that shit are mostly doing it for CoD and Assassin's Creed but those people were probably all 7 or 8 when GRAW came out and they missed it at release. A military man with a gun is probably enough to get them to put it in the queue and $20 doesn't matter if it's someone else's points/CC.

Going by user ratings, 14 of the 20 games on the list appear in the 100 worst-rated Games on Demand titles. To be fair, the bottom of that list starts at about four stars and doesn't dip below three stars until it reaches the three worst games.

The Top Five:
1. Brave Warrior's Tale - 2 Stars
2. Blowout - 2.5 Stars
3. Disney Sing It: High School Musical 3 - 2.5 Stars
4. Meet the Robinsons - 3 Stars
5. Bomberman: Act Zero - 3 Stars

Wow, went on my dash and looked at the most popular GOnD and most of these were in the late 300's out of the 400 games listed. Honestly unlike many here I don't really like having a good amount of points on my account. Anything over 160 bothers me and with only PoP as a maybe for next week, I dunno what to do.
