So I'm most likely going to get LEGO Indiana Jones 1 and 2, Batman, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. That'll already put me at 4,000 MSP for the sale. I think I need to slow it down and spread the wealth. I think I may limit it to just 2-3.

Thinking about getting Lego Pirates, but I won't have time to play anytime soon and I might be able to pick it up cheaper later on.

I hate sales. They make me feel like I need to buy stuff....

Picked up MW3 Collection 3 pack since I bought the first two collections last time they were on sale and I'm going to pass on Collection 4 since they are only multiplayer maps and I haven't played multiplayer in a long while.

Probably gonna pass on the Lego games since I already have most of them and still need to finish up Lego Star Wars III.

And last but not least ... remember the "End of the World" promo on Xbox Rewards is gauged by UTC time, which means you have only until 12/21 @ 3:59pm PST to purchase 2000 MSP of content. Don't wait until Friday evening to buy Rockstar games, or any of the XBLA titles on sale for the whole promotion, because it will have been too late to qualify.

I kind of thought the fine print indicated that the End of the World promo was good for the whole month of December, not just until 12/21. Is this for sure?

Because I hadn't really paid attention to Kinect Party until it was offered as a free download I thought I'd google it to see what it was all about. I typed in the title in the search bar and clicked on the third result because its description mentioned pricing details. I read through the short article, happy that it answered my questions about pricing while also giving me an idea of the game's structure. When I got to the bottom of the article I found that it was written by this threads' own eastx. A totally unplanned, "It's a small world" type moment! Thanks for the breakdown Paul!:D

I honestly thought PotC and HP were the best Lego games I've played. Then again, it could be because I prefer those movies over the other two.

well that must be the reason, because those games are certainly not better than LEGO Indy, Star wars, or Batman ;)

LEGO Batman 2 is the best of the bunch IMO. I haven't played LOTR yet, but it doesn't sound quite as grand in scale gameplay-wise.

My gold subscription just ran out yesterday and I renewed it today. Does this disqualify me from the $1.25 XBLA end of the World promotion? It says you have to be a gold member through the month of december, but I'm not sure if that means starting December 1st.

I am in Australia and i am wanting to know if there is any reason LEGO POTC is not $9.95 like the other LEGO games?
Also, what region msp would work on a Hungarian account?
I thought there were arcade games on sale that went for the whole countdown also?

EDIT: This is the list I am talking about with the arcade games on sale, which is back up again and with Super Meat Boy added to the list (prices still original prices)

Yep, i guess UK points will works, but i bought some region free 400msp codes to be 100% sure.

What is ''Hidden Gems'' thing on dashboard? Some sale or just recommendations? There are games like Rocket Knight, Pool Nation, Hard Corps, Metal Slug 3,Skullgirls, and few others and ? square. So far shows them with original prices. Hopefully is sale.

Serious Sam is up, though some pages don't have the "Jewel of the Nile" DLC pricing reflected, so I'm hacking the OP anyways enhancing Bloomy's initial edit in the OP. It's what Sam would've wanted. :)

I think they're typically cheap games they put in the "everyday value" section. I guess we'll know later on Tuesday?

LEGO Indiana Jones 2 includes all four films and improves upon the original. If given the choice I'd recommend most people skip the first and go for the second.

I'm on my phone but maybe someone can edit the OP to clarify since I keep seeing this question come up and hopefully this will save someone $10 and avoid the disappointment if they thought the 2 games were completely different.

Here's a link to GameSpot's review with clarification: http://m.gamespot.co...review-6241373/

thanks.
hopefully i can get a 1600 msp code from the trade thread. Tried a supposed region free code from ebay but did not work, its ok though as it works on my main account.

Is Super Meat Boy worth 600 msp?

They should have put Torchlight instead for the same price. I mean, R.A.W. is not worth even at 400.

Wait, isn't 1600msp codes US only? I can't see these working for Hungarian account.

SMB is steal at 600msp. Probably the best platformer on XBLA. From what i remember there are 300+ levels in the main game + some hidden ''Glitch'' levels. And if that isn't enough, Team Meat has added tons of additional content in ''Teh Internets'' menu, rather than charging for dlc, like most of the developers do.

But "Joe Danger 2" is a STEAL at 400 MSP! I'll make some changes right now while I'm in the OP, but Serious Sam is seriously done now. :lol:

Wow, talk about a huge drop... however, judging from reviews and feedbacks around teh Interwebs, it really looks like developers should credit you that many points to make you play their game... :-#

Actually, I took my time to complete and (partially) enjoy that shameful pile of bugs that was D&D: Daggerdale, but only because I grabbed it for free during the Russian/Chinese Marketplace "incident", plus I'm a sucker for hack'n slashes despite how bad they may be, so perhaps I'll give the demo a roll.

Now, if only they would do the very same discount on both Deathspanks and The Baconing... :roll:

It's that bad?

Wait, isn't 1600msp codes US only? I can't see these working for Hungarian account.

Ok, what is something around the same size that would work, as i will be getting a few things from there.

SMB is steal at 600msp. Probably the best platformer on XBLA. From what i remember there are 300+ levels in the main game + some hidden ''Glitch'' levels.

Done with the OP for tonight ... I'll let Spylon's script catch all the price-drops (or they can be lifted from 1 of the many other threads/sites tracking the sale), but that's enough BB-code for me! :lol:

BTW, did everyone see that @GearboxSoftware posted SHiFT codes worth 5 GOLDEN KEYS for Borderlands 2 on Monday night?
