for anyone who's disappointed by today's sale.

FIRST ios game with xbox achievements (only 50 though compared 200 you can get on windows phone). still go get it and have fun :)

Yup, got this. It's basically a Boggle clone, but you can't beat free for achievements.

I enjoyed it.


Same here. I thought bully was really fun. The achievements are pretty easy as well. My only complaint is that there's zero replay value.

Since today's deal isn't doing much for conversation, anybody interested in brainstorming how to do a better CAG XBLA gaming group?

There are the occasional "add me if you buy x" posts. And a few "can somebody help me finish up x achievements." I've always wondered if we could get something more formal setup for playing and finishing games with one another in a way regulars to this forum can use and refer to as they shop/consider the games that go on sale.

One example is for the fighters genre: Mtltom's X360 Fighting forum does a real nice job organizing for multiple games as well as creating a community. What if we group XBLA games by genre so CAGs visiting this forum can find plenty of (mostly) friendly people to play them with as they buy the games that go on sale. Thoughts?

I think last month. The whole Argentian marketplace or some shit. I have it still on my HD, but I cant access the dlc without having the profile it was downloaded on, so hence I fucked myselfout of 1800+ MSP. :cry:

I think a XBLA group is a good idea. I buy tons of these games when they go on sale and rarely have anyone to play with. I don't play a lot of the competitive modes but I do enjoy the coop and asynchronous multiplayer. Anyone can add me, gt is Sir Loinsteak. Looking for someone to help with a couple Serious Sam 3 multiplayer achievements right now.

That sounds like a great idea and not sure how somebody hasn't done it yet. I don't know how often I'd use it to wrap up achievements (being a member of TA), however, there's older games I'd love to be able to play again. Perfect Dark comes to mind. Or we could set up games of Magic DOTP, Carcassone,etc, the possibilities are endless.

Superpumped for Dust. Will go for Hybrid and Deadlight if they go batshit and lower those to 400.

Maybe a Wiki Thread on the Xbox 360 page? Something where people could post up requests on the main post, and see if interest from other players is noticed. If enough is gained, then people could decide on a time.

If it's a Wiki Post, maybe have a rule to put up requests for a maximum of 30 days? Just put the date of the listing in your request, and it could then be taken down. And maybe have 1 request per poster? You can always re-list, it's just so that the post doesn't run out of space.

Maybe even have a listing on the page of people who help often enough, to let other players know who to ask for help if they really need it.

Just rambling...

I Was thinking the same time, though more so for Deadlight for 400. The two hour length and problematic melee mechanics I keep hearing about makes me think that's the right price for it.

I don't understand why Dungeon Fighter is always a part of the fighting games sales. It's not in any way a fighting game. I got it last time for 400 points and it's fun, but not a fighting game. Give me Soul Calibur half off >_>

To be fair with the upcoming sale, it'll be the second time it's on sale and both times being mashed with fighting games. So not a super recurring theme, but it does have FIGHTER in the title. So maybe the theme if anything is "Games with 'fighter' in the title".

I think we're on the same page here. What if we used the CAG groups to do something like this:

CAG Card and Board Group

Just a quick little mockup of a group that's pretty niched and specific (so it'd appeal to that type of gamer and promote a little community.) It could include discussions for planning game nights, achievement hunting, maybe strategy, etc.

I know it's off topic and the sales are about to pick up again. However, if anybody's interested in fleshing this out, please PM me. Maybe we can work out a format that would be appealing to this forum and then add a few links for these groups to the 1st or 2nd post of this forum to build it.

Dust and Deadlight are 600, and Hybrid is 400. Prices aren't showing up unless you click on the buy game link.

Edit: Prices are live, thank you Cornelius.

And you didn't save additional proofs when MS recommended it? For shame!!!

BTW, here's a recap of the articles posted by Xbox leadership on the how & why to add proofs. It's VITAL that everyone do this for their account, so that you can:
  • require cell-phone codes to change identity / passwords / payment info
  • restrict PC access to just those you authorize
  • grant a 2nd account access to receive password-reset instructions/links
It literally takes only 30-60 seconds to login on a PC / 360 to add the info, but with these "strong" protections in place (yes, that's a real security-related term), you'll increase your protection by 100x.

First document explaining the program & getting started ...

Second document explaining the "why" of it all ...
[gs]0AkRGhTTk9OiFdEdqVkFfNFNJU09FVV9VUmtQaTgxYlE[/gs]

ReddJoey, these seem like relevant items to stick in the #2 or #3 posts of the thread (and I literally copied them word-for-word with no edits) ... what do you think? The advantage of having them as Google spreadsheets allows embedding in messages, rather than trust Xbox.com to retain the URL destinations.

Xbox.com now reflects pricing for Dust & Deadlight ... Hybrid is a little late, but I'm sure it'll be live within a few minutes. Lighting up the OP right now! :)

Thanks for the heads up! Guess I'm going to pick up Deadlight, looks like it is slightly enjoyable and it is a pretty easy 400/400. After buying 10x 1600 points cards on Black Friday, I haven't been to picky on sale prices.

I was thinking I would go for Hybrid for 400, and here it is. Does it have enough users playing it?

Deadlight for 600 is iffy. Can't decide if a couple hours of gameplay is good enough. Dust seems like a good deal for 600.

Just a reminder to anyone looking to bite on Hybrid for the price that it is multiplayer only. Not every review I read mentioned that and as someone that doesn't play competitive online games at all, it was a pretty big point.

Hybrid is an incredibly good game, except for one huge problem. The matchmaking system is horrible. I keep hoping they will patch in a solution, but until that day be prepared to spend quite some time waiting for a match to get put together. It is my favorite shooter, but I often quit out of frustration after only playing a couple matches cause I just can't handle the waiting.
