The DLC you mentioned for Trine 2 is only
By the way has anyone had issues buying Rayman Origins? It shows as $9.99 on the page but when I go to pay it shows up as $19.99. Annoys me as I've moved to Australia with my North American Xbox and the PAL disc is region-locked so I can't buy it from a store here.


I'm having the same issue, I'm in Canada. it shows 9.99 on the website, when I go to purchase, BAM 19.99.

EDIT: Noticed when I change it from en-us to en-ca, it shows as 19.99, I guess they don't want my money.

Insta-bought Mark of the Ninja, I'll download the Fez demo at home to make up my mind...
One question: how is the SmartGlass implementation in Mark of the Ninja? I saw something to download through the app in the game's page, so I was wondering if you can use your portable device to display maps, inventory or the like... that would be very cool :)

Downloading Fez and Rayman 3 HD. You guys keep mentioning Mark of the Ninja, so I think I might pick that up as well.

Everybody should play Mark of the Ninja, even if you don't like stealth games. The reason being because the reason you might not like stealth games is because they're usually bad. This one is not.

I play bad games

If anyone isn't going to use their code I'd love them forever.

I don't like Godzilla.

The DLC you mentioned for Trine 2 is only available for the PC and the Wii U. It is unlikely to come to any other consoles.

Though i would caution you that yes it does have more content on the Wii U but if you're at all interested in online play with it then the Wii U is likely a bad bet as I heard that there's not one soul ever on there playing Trine 2. I'm not sure if it's much better on Xbox, being an older game, but I'm sure you'd have a lot better luck online there. So it does depend on what you're looking for. Also the Magic Mayhem mode that was promised with the Wii U title didn't arrive at launch, with no idea of when it might be updated. Not sure if it'll be part of the update Frozenbyte promised would come out mid-December which was meant to fix the gamma problem the game had, not sure if that update has come out either. But IMHO as it stands basically the Wii U version is the Xbox version with the PC DLC. It's $20 vs $5 though which as a CAG seals the deal for me. Also note that you're looking at close to a 2GB download on the Wii U so if you were planning on planting it onto your harddrive room will likely be tight.


Thank you for the info. It'd just be my brother and I playing, so we wouldn't have trouble finding a co-op partner, and we have the 32 Black Wii U. I'll wait for that one. :D

got mark of the ninja as well... i think i'm done for the shopping season. picked up serious sam 3, rock band 3, assassin's creed 2 at the last sale, and now mark of the ninja. might pick up some fruit ninja dlc.

i'm at the point that my 250 GB is maxed out with DLC. almost no game installs. pretty sad. i don't want to be in a situation where i'm deleting a 5GB GoD in order to download a 4GB GoD.

I picked Fez, and damned myself for not waiting until today to get Trine2. I payed full price a year ago for Trine2, good game, but if I knew it would be on sale in a single year for 400MSP...

Just Fez for me (already have Hell Yeah, SA2, & Rayman 3). Already ran into a bug in the game, where I walked into an area & it booted me back to the dash for no reason. Sure hope I don't get anything worse, considering I heard some were game crashing.

Is rayman 3 good/worth playing even though I have a backlog?

I already have everything else good from the sale (Fez, Hell Yeah, Mark of the Ninja) but Trine 2 at 400 points caught my eye. I have a ridiculous backlog but the demo was interesting enough, especially for $5. Decisions, decisions....

Trine2 is a good, beautiful game. Also, the achievements are pretty easy. For that price is a steal.

I think the best way to judge a game (short of playing it yourself) is to watch someone you know/trust play it. I suggest checking out the Giant Bomb Quick Look of Mark of the Ninja is you're still on the fence.

(For the record, I'm picking it up based on the QL).

Picking up Fez and Mark of the Ninja, will try the demo of Trine 2.

I'm also curious about Rayman 3. I like the series but I've heard you can't go back and replay old levels. Can someone confirm/deny this and give an opinion on this game?

Says the bloke whose nearly every post in the other thread about this sale was a smartassed, unhelpful response... :p But don't worry, I might find it ever so slightly endearing.


Tyler's not a troll, dude.

yeah everyone on here is going on about fez, i took a look at it and laughed out loud, what a crap looking game.


Its not just the graphics the trial was boring as hell and I prefer games with more than a couple buttons being used. To me no classic games age well. As much as I would like to play Streets of Rage, Sonic classics, Fez, among others.....its just not happening since they are boring as hell and have no skill involved just luck.


You two should comment less. Especially Stellar - nearly everything you've said has caused me to wince in pain. if you're not a troll, you have really uninformed opinions and a lack of respect for older games that hardly any gamers would agree with.

Picked up Trine 2 without hesitation. I held back on it last time it was on sale so I'm happy to get it for even cheaper this time around.

Going to hold off on Mark of the Ninja. I'm sure it'll be on sale again (Humble Bundle perhaps?) and maybe by then I can actually complete all the other XBLA games I have stored up. You know you have a lot of XBLA games when you have to go to the purchase page just to check to see if you've already purchased it. I almost bought Rayman 3 HD again this morning.

I would say it depends on if you liked Rayman 2/Rayman in 3D in general. I didn't get far (a little past the demo's end, I should really go back to it someday), but from what I played, it was decent enough. & there's a chapter select, so you can go back & replay levels.

You can replay levels.

As for my very short opinion, I quiet enjoy it. It looks great, though the camera is really bad.

My issue is it's 5.6 GB and I'm running out of room. Since its MSRP is only $20, I think I'll just try to hold out for a sale on the physical disc.

Although with Target points I'd only be paying $5 in real money for the digital version... hmm, decisions, decisions.

Mine has about 20 Gig free with only one game installed. Damn you MS for not releasing a 500 Gig drive. And I do realize that you can rig your own 3rd party HD, but am too lazy to do it.

It's fun in bite size playing sessions. The "finish off the boss" mini games are absolutely hilarious. You'll probably get your money's worth from it.
