anybody noticed this week they put out about 10 (TEN!) game on demand games on the market?

usually it's about 2-3 per week.. if only their pricing policy is a little more flexible.

So it seems. Damn, no possibility for Skullgirls or DD Neon then :cry:

WOW!! New Double Dragon II, doesn't look too bad http://marketplace.x...15-d8025841128d

I Think that game is cancelled. This was shown nearly a year before Neon was unveiled and has had no updates since.

Also Tony Hawk is tempting, but for 600 points seems a bit much. If it was 400, then sure, but from all the complaints it doesn't feel I'm missing much.

Doesn't it seem a little thin to have a day devoted to a Tony Hawk game after all of the days with so many games?


Well the rumor said the GoD Tony Hawk games might be included as well

So RAW, MOTN, and soon Deadlight will be my pick ups. Someday I will pick up Fez, but I'm just not feeling it right now.

I tried the Hell Yeah demo and was bored. I watched some LPs on youtube and it looks like it gets better, so I'm curious what fellow CAGs who are playing the game think about it. It has that Sega personality and beautiful animation, but I was bored during the demo.

Less choice means those desperate to buy something on sale might choose THPSHHDDVVDDBVD tomorrow. They REALLY want to sell a few copies of this unworthy turd. My buy price is 200.

The person who said tony hawk would be the sale, also said rock band 3 and bully would be the games on demand, and he was right. And it was fishy only 2 games on demand were on sale compared to all the arcade games

Tony Hawk HD is awful. Not even worth 80 points.

Spend your money on the Dreamcast versions of THPS/THPS2 or just pick up THPS2X on Xbox.

I agree with pretty much every negative point mentioned in this review:

So I am on the fence about Jet Grind Radio...I played the Xbox version close to decade ago and was not too impressed, but does anyone recommend this game?

Nah, as the writer of that, I just assumed "American Wasteland", "Project 8", or "Proving Ground" would be available ... so lo & behold, it'll probably just be THPS:HD.

There are Tony Hawk GoD games?


Could have sworn Project 8 and American's wasteland was on there at one point but im not seeing them anymore.

Anyways the TH "remake" is garbage. So not worth 600 pts, maybe 80 pts or less for the lulz.

Waiting on the Trials sale now, then I guess walking Dead.

EDIT: should note that i never really played any after THPS2. that may affect my opinion.

Guess I was the only one that enjoyed Tony Hawk HD. It's exactly what I expected. It's the classic Tony Hawk experience. What were people expecting? If all the complaints are about it not being actually HD, then I can see that because it doesn't look good for an "HD" game, but it plays good so I don't see what the problem is.

Anyone know why my screen purchasing Midnight Club LA $9.99 but (converted to MSP) 1080MSP instead of 800MSP? Very weird so I'm waiting the whole day to discover.

It's nothing like the classic Tony Hawk experience. If you go back and really play the old ones, the mechanics are totally different. It wasn't just an HD upgrade, they built it from the ground up, therefore a lot of the controls and physics just aren't up to snuff.

Also, the soundtrack isn't as amazing </3

Maybe the difference in the mechanics aren't noticable to the average player. I used to be able to beat the games just fine, but I was never really stellar so perhaps the finer points were lost on me. I enjoyed the HD version just fine.

How are the mechanics different from the original game? Also, they really built it from the ground up? It looks terrible for a true HD remake.

yeah the physics are a little messed up but other then that it plays just like a classic Tony Hawk game. If you enjoy them then you'll enjoy this, it just might take some time getting used to the new engine/physics.

Like Chrono, I was more of a casual player who just played the games, collected the tapes/letters, then moved on, but I thought Tony Hawk HD wasn't too bad.

I found it interesting that you kind of start out as a gimped character, not going as fast or jumping as high as I remembered. In this game you need to level your character all the way up(not sure if there was leveling in the old games). But after you put in a few hours, the game feels a lot better and to me, exactly like the original.

i bought tony hawk day 1 and didnt put it down until i maxed out my avatar and beat all the goals. had a blast just like when i played the original. if you aren't sure you want it, play the demo. there's enough to judge the physics and controls in the demo (you can keep restarting before the timer runs out).
