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?

Like Cornelius, I'd assumed it was only running until the 21st, until I checked their T&Cs:

What is the Apocalyptic Rewards Offer?
A. Stay Gold and earn 100 Microsoft Points when you spend 2,000 Microsoft Points on eligible Xbox LIVE Marketplace content. Purchases must be made from December 1 – December 31, 2012 via the Xbox LIVE Marketplace...

What Xbox LIVE Marketplace purchases are eligible?
A. Any content purchased on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace here, excluding Microsoft Points and Xbox LIVE Gold subscriptions purchases, are eligible for the offer. Purchases must be made between December 1, 2012 00:01 UTC and December 31, 2012 23:59 UTC. A maximum of 100 Microsoft Points can be earned per Xbox LIVE Rewards member for the offer.
When will I receive my 100 Microsoft Points?
A. Your eligible Xbox LIVE Marketplace purchases will be calculated at the end of December. The 100 Microsoft Points will then be deposited by January 15, 2013. During the Offer Period, your Points will not show up under Pending.

Awesome, I'm definitely getting Zuma's Revenge. I'm still struggling with the first one on the very last stage though lol I hope this one doesn't kick my butt just as bad. I may try out SMB and a few others and pick up Bully depending on how much it is.

Dammit ... what's the point of putting in a fancy DHTML countdown clock if they're not going to enforce the thing? Lame. :)

Updated Zuma's & Frogger's prices ... anything else get touched?

Joe Danger for 400? Oh hell yes! I'm still on the fence about Sonic though. First one was alright. Any thoughts if it's worth the 600?

It's been 600 MSP once already ... http://xbldb.com/offers/005-2fb ... I'd only (seriously) consider it if you had Sonic 4 Episode 1 already, in which case you get "lock on" functionality to play as Tails through Episode 1. Otherwise RB3 (and Bully) are WAY better investments.

Also if you own Sonic 4 Episode I, you unlock the Metal Sonic stages on Sonic 4 Episode II. I enjoyed very much both of them, though I prefer the first one (I know people like more the second).

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


I own two copies of Torchlight (PC/XBLA), a copy of Torchlight 2, and I've never played either... So I have no idea why I'm off to try the R.A.W. demo... :lol:


plus I'm a sucker for hack'n slashes despite how bad they may be, so perhaps I'll give the demo a roll.


Tried the demo of that one... ugh horrible game. Then again 4th edition about killed D&D for me so I had a lot of hate built up already. :lol:

Thanks, added to the OP, and I saw Peggle finally dropped to 400 MSP. Calling it a night ... see y'all for Thursday's refresh! :)

Here's my Sonic 4 Episode II review. I definitely recommend it if you like Sonic or platformers in general. Most of the people who don't like Episode II just don't really like the Sonic games any more, though I admit it has a few lingering problems.

And here's my Zuma's Revenge review too while we're at it. Fantastic puzzle game and much easier than the first Zuma.

What you think is a better game? Zuma Revenge or Peggle + DLC.

Just tried to get some cheap LEGO games on my Hungarian account and it is saying not available from your location, this sucks.
The past few sales i have had no problem downloading the games on demand games but this is annoying.

That happens when the game is region blocked, some are and some aren't, bad luck this time.

Anyone have opinions for Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition? $5 seems more reasonable for a Frogger game, especially one that tries to update the gameplay & adds skins from other Konami franchises like Contra, Castlevania, & DDR. Gonna download the demo to try out, but might as well get some opinions.

Scratch & Match loser deals:
Catan (400 MSP, 1/2 off)
Catan - General Expansion Pack 1 (80 MSP, 40% off)
Catan - Mayfair Skin Pack (80 MSP, 53-ish% off)

So Hungarian accounts get the GoD for cheaper? Might have to make an account and make sure the games aren't region locked if that's the case.

Thats right, but as I have found out some of the games are region locked.
So I am in Australia and I could not get any of the LEGO games with the Hungarian account.
People living in America will probably not be able to get them also, but can't say for sure.

I love Frogger in PS1 and tried the demo for this and is a great deal if you play with friends (So I will buy it).

Dang, would be amazing to get those games for 4 bucks, (2 bucks if you got MSP from Target on Black Friday). Anyways, someone said something about picking up Zuma or Peggle, in my opinion, Peggle is one of the best arcade games to pass time away and it never gets boring, just a bit frustrating sometimes, you can't go wrong it.

I'd also like any opinions on Frogger HAE.

And I was just about to report the Scratch & Match. I've played the hell out of Catan and I think this is the first time the DLC has gone on sale so I'm biting on it. The expansion pack gives more AI personalities to play against and the skin pack uses the original artwork for the game.

Just FYI, you don't need to download the unlock for the Star Gazer if you already have the "Kinect Party" unlock key. It's included in the channels that are unlocked. They're probably going to start putting up keys for all of the individual channels.

The link said it will cost 160 MSP. For that price I'll probably pick it up at launch.



Yes! I'm so glad I didn't buy Bully at $15. It's $5 off that price so $10 right now. Just bought it. I was able to avoid another Crysis ummm... crisis ;)
