Each episode is already 400 (I'm inferring your use of "instead of" to mean you think the sale price would be 400, though I could be reading that wrong). With the first episode being free, I wouldn't be surprised if the others dropped to 250. While that's a bit of an odd price for XBLM, getting them all during the sale would then cost 1,000 MSP, half off the non-sale price. And given the accolades the game has received, I'd pick it up at that price.

I finally started up Bully SE and the framerate definitely isn't perfect by any means. It's mostly fine, but I definitely see some moments where it noticeably drops a little bit and I'm not the type of person that is bothered by that. The camera is another weird thing I noticed right away since it uses the classic last gen-style camera that doesn't move like all third-person games do now, which is always something I see in all of the HD remasters of last-gen games. The game definitely looks better than the PS2 original, though that's with the caveat that they mainly just made the game look cleaner and improved textures and that sort of stuff.

The achievements all look to be either complete Chapter 1, 2, 3, etc. or do X mechanic Y times, so that's not a surprise from an early Xbox 360 achievement list.

To talk about the game itself, it's easily my favorite Rockstar game due to the great story, the grounded characters, and the great gameplay mechanics that were a big improvement over what we had to endure in the GTA III Trilogy.

they are 400 now, i meant for an input on them possibly dropping to 200.

250 makes sense

For the walking dead, I'm just waiting for the compilation disk to be half off. I got black to the future for $10 like that about 6 months after release. Expect the walking dead disk to be 15 sometime next year.

They made a blaxploitation game based on Back to the Future?

Also with all the problems from the Walking Dead on disc game, I'd rather just save the trouble and get the downloads so I don't have to worry.

I might do this aswell. Each game is around 600 MB so your looking at 3 GB and some change of memory for the first season. If you get it on retail, you could also sell your copy once you complete the game.

I really want to like Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit more than I do, but it's feeling more like a 400 msp game for me. That's the good news (for my very limited pool of points)... The bad news is that I had a great time with the Serious Sam 3 demo. Great graphics, old school shooter feel, and a generous auto aim (something that seemed to be lacking on the first 2 encounters on the Xbox). And for the person commenting about the lack of ammo for the pistol, it's one of those magical infinite reload variety...just in case that was a serious question. ;-)

Midnight Club LA is my favorite racer this generation. The open worlds, vehicle variety, cop chases, controls, and sense of speed were exactly what in was looking for. Even the music is pretty good. My one gripe was the tedious requirement of having to drive to every single race; no teleport option. :-\

I Think Joe Danger 2 came in two or three months after the 360 version and it had some extra levels and vehicles, kinda like how 360 got JD1 and we got the "Extended Cut" levels or whatever. Though so far as far as I know they're all still exclusive to their own console.

We knew we had to go back to the drawing board, we wanted Joe Danger to be more accessible and easier to get into. We scrapped about half of the levels, and toned down the rest. Then we added a huge amount of new content, to make the original Joe Danger the 25 hour fun-fest that was such a hit on PS3!

The sad thing is, no one ever got to play this prototype game we now refer to as “Joe Danger Gaiden”. It was an alternate Joe Danger for a true fan, and I still play it every now and then. When we came to make the PS3 version of Joe Danger 2, I thought it would be a great opportunity to let our original fans play this unseen version.

So what is it? Well, it’s a complete game that takes easily ten hours to complete. Many of the levels will be familiar to fans of the original, and others are experiments that we loved but were too challenging or quirky for the main game.

We’ve gone back and added all the cool new things from Joe Danger 2, like Pro Medals, Ghosts, new leaderboards and hidden challenges where you become a monkey on a jetpack!

All the levels use the scrambler from the original, which isn’t normally in Joe Danger 2. You play as Team Nasty (Joe’s rivals), and each one of the 5 members gets their own tour with 5 levels each! It starts out easy, but it really does get intense!

It is set in the Motion Capture lab from Joe Danger 2. This is a pure, abstract environment, and is where we develop all our levels and experiment (we use the grid markings to make the levels flow perfectly). It allows you to focus on the challenge!

One thing to note is that the bicycle repair "Shop" minigame is pretty much FUBAR (at least it was in the disc version). You kinda have to start the motions of rotating the sticks before the prompt appears on-screen or else it registers as too late. You can look on gamefaqs for the sequences/tips on how to complete.

However, that doesn't really tarnish what is otherwise an excellent game. For more fun, with a touch of 'shared experience', I suggest listening to the Rebel-FM "Game Club" podcasts. They took Bully off their 'Pile of Shame' and invited listeners to play along with them over the course of 4 or 5 episodes. This was when I played and it was nice to hear what others were thinking about the same parts of the games.

It's very similar to GiantBomb's "Faces of Death" series chronicling The Walking Dead episodes except in podcast not written form. As Bully is broken mostly into chapters (with some open world side mission stuff), the format really works. I enjoyed it a lot.

Well I bought Catan today and am enjoying it for the most part. Never played the board game, but I did the "tutorial" round and thought it was pretty cool. Nice and relaxing, something you can pick up and play a match or two and come back later. Haven't tried the online yet, so no idea how active it is. I bought the extra generals thing too, though that probably isn't necessary.

I have never bought an xbla game before and was curious to whether or not games become a lot more cheap for those patient enough. With the backlog I have, it may well be over a year before I can tackle Fez, MotN, and super meat boy. Do you guys think from past experience that the games will be cheaper in the future? (Considering SMB is a couple of years old and still at 1200 msp at regular price seems to indicate that price drops are not frequent but I have basically zero experience with xbla games.)

Usually games go for 50% off when they go on sale. If you're patient (and lucky) you'll be able to occasionally find a better deal. I bought Braid when it first went on sale for 1/3 off. A year and a half later it hit 2/3 off its original price. I don't think it's been on sale since then. As long as you buy it on sale you won't feel too bad when/if it goes on sale for slightly cheaper.

Added a note to the OP confirming it's the complete edition. Does anyone know if RDR is the complete edition with the Nightmare Collection, or just the original game? I'm scraping the Xbox.com forums, but not finding an answer ... yet. :)

So I guess permanent price drops aren't as frequent as I hoped. Regular Price drop + frequent 50~75% sale was what I was hoping for but I guess that was wishful thinking.

Man do I hate being indecisive. (But it's really hard to change that aspect of myself.)
Thanks for your input and info! Will definitely consider it while I ponder a bit more.

Yup. Unless you consider Gears of War 3 season pass as a xbla game. That is the only 'paid' thing I've bought on xbox live.

I guess it's more of a first experience thing that is holding me back from purchasing. I imagine if I grab one game today, the flood gates will open and I'll grab everything that I'm even slightly interested in. It's that first step that's hard I guess.

EDIT: Splosion man I bought in the disc with limbo, trials and splosion man.

Catan and Serious Sam 3 BFE worth it? I need that extra push

You've got until at least Sunday to make up your mind on Catan, and maybe your point balance will help you with the decision. "Catan" is probably the best casual turn-based experience you can have (note I said "casual", rather than "stressful" like Civilization or Puzzle Quest). When you turn it up to "high", at least 1 of the 3 AI will give you a challenge (though usually due to abstaining from card-trading), and the random placement of the board (and initial order of city placement) can work immediately against you.

The Generals pack (adds new AI personas) and the Mayfair tiles (painted look) aren't necessary at all, and in fact, I play without the Mayfair tiles, since they're not starkly different in color.
