Depends on what your definition of "easy" is.

Potemkin is the game's grappler character, which automatically means he's going to dominate at a lower level of play. None of his command grabs are 360's/720's, which means you don't have to buffer anything with another move/jump, they all do pretty good damage, and some even have combo potential afterward.

Ky is the game's "shoto" character. He has a fireball, a DP, a tatsu-like overhead, and a sliding low. He can get simple combos off of pretty much anything (including his DP), and on knockdown, you can do easily do jD to set up oki.

May does tons of damage with fairly easy BnBs, and she has fucking DOLPHINS you can ride around the screen on. Think Jin's Ice Car from Blazblue, except with dolphins. Yeah, awesome.

Jam is high tier with ridiculous combo potential and has tons of options with meter/her stocks.

Baiken has on-block moves activated by 412 + Button that can render tons of blockstrings/pressure useless.

And Kliff/Justice probably shouldn't be allowed online until the +R patch because they were never balanced for tourney play, but they'll probably be available anyway.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong about anything. I'm still learning the game myself, haha.

Sol's pretty easy too, but Sidewinder loops are haaaaaaaaaaaaaaard. #badatfightinggames

I main T-hawk in SF4 (went through hell competing with him, but it made me stronger) so Potekim will likely be my main for a few days.

hey guys i bought the batman AC on GoD and it offers you the catwoman dlc for free , its a steal at this price with the dlc, plus its the first GoD ive bought, im so happy with this game, there is no lag running off the Hard drive, its a really sweet deal.

The GOTY disc version can also be installed to the HDD ... and it's only $29.99 @ GameStop between Tues, Oct 24th - Mon, Oct. 30th. Don't say the OP didn't warn you! :lol:

Otherwise, if you wanted a great "1st GoD purchase", then "Crysis" would've been better @ only $9.99 / 800pts a couple of weeks back. Otherwise I'll hint it's VERY to find download codes for "Crysis 2", "Halo Reach", or "GunStringer" for $10-$15 each on eBay or CAG's own trading thread. Canadians also have access to downloadable "Gears of War 2", "Halo Wars", and "Alan Wake", so those are out there if you look hard enough.

I don't always buy :360: points, but when I do, I click this CrazyGameTime affiliate link below

I'm really excited about Artorias of the Abyss. I was going to order Prepare to Die edition, but turns out the console version do not include the cool 150 pages artbook, poster and post cards, which were in PC one, So yeah, will download the dlc then.

It shows RE4, Dead Rising 2, Alan Wake: American Nightmare, and Ugly Americans on the 50% off screen ("Tricks and Treats").

Then under the next tab ("Grave Arcade"), it shows I Am Alive, Deadlight, Castlevania HD, Haunt, All Zombies Must Die, DR2: Case Zero, and Zombie Apocalypse: NDA. I'm not sure if those will be discounted (hope so!) or if they're just featured as part of the "here's some scary stuff" list since there are other tabs as well for Games on Demand, Add-Ons, Video, and Avatar Items.

I really hope everything on the list is on sale, rather than just the select few. I'm very happy about RE4, of course, but the rest is stuff that most people already have (especially since Alan Wake: AN was just on sale a couple of weeks ago).

Eh, worry less about numbers and more whether you like that type of game or not. There aren't too many 4-player co-op twin-stick shooters with easy Achievements and a free Avatar Award (demon baby prop) out there. Fans of the show will probably enjoy it since it has exclusive animation and a decent amount of humor.

Purchased. Was kind of bummed when I missed out on the pre-order/1st week deal that PS+ had when it first came out last year, but this more than makes up for that. Now I can finally see what I've been missing out on all these years.

RE4 is finally 800 MSP on Xbox.com, and the prices for Ugly Americans, Dead Rising 2 ($15/1200 Microsoft Points) & the Bioshock DotW stuff is also updated.

Just waiting on Alan Wake: AN to update, unless they're putting more on sale. Which is doubtful considering the format of the "sale" last year and the fact that the "Grave Arcade" list is separate from the Tricks & Treats list (which already has TWO arcade titles in it). Also, there's no way Telltale would approve any of the Walking Dead episodes being on sale with the complete disk release coming out right around the corner, since those already have a high chance of bombing in sales.

So yeah, 2 3 GoD sales & 2 XBLA sales, bleh. No wonder they're being sneaky and including Bioshock 1 & 2 in the dashboard tab. I mean I'm glad RE4 & Ugly Americans are finally seeing a sale, but it would have been nice to have some repeats from last year at least, like Castlevania or something, or put the DR2 DLC on sale. Guess Microsoft burnt itself out with all the good sales the past few weeks.

The worst part we won't have any new deals 'till THURSDAY next week either.

Personally, my wallet needed a break this week anyways, just gonna pick up RE4 & Ugly Americans and call it a day. DR2's disk can be picked up around that price since Off the Record came out. Kinda wish I had waited on buying Alan Wake: AN during the Back 2 School sale (would have gotten something else at the time) if a sale is going to be this likely for it (which is surprising, guess it didn't sell well), but at least it's the same sale price as of right now.

I'm hoping that my Metro 2033 purchase combined with my RE4 purchase and possibly Darksiders, will put me at the 2000 point mark. Does anyone know if Metro 2033 or Darksiders was confirmed for the promotion?

Well, according to Major Nelson, this DotW & the Shocktober stuff's last day of sales is the 31st (Halloween) which is a WEDNESDAY. So unless they're going to run an extra DotW or something, it seems that's the case, yes? If the DotW ended on Monday as it normally does, I would just assume the Shocktober sale was extra long.

Copypasta from Majornelson.com -> Bioshock 23-Oct To 31-Oct
Bioshock 1 Varies By Region
Bioshock 2 Varies By Region
Minerva’s Den 400 (50% Off)
The Protector Trials 200 (50% Off)
Rapture Metro 400 (50% Off)
Sinclair Solutions Tester Pack 200 (50% Off)


Given that Bioshock is somewhat of a horror/sci-fi game (and the fact that it's in the Shocktober tab) this makes sense. I will say that since the Kinect Central sale this week ends on Monday as usual, there's a chance that a new Kinect title may be on sale as of next Tuesday.

Edit: Leedmees just had its price updated, so now we're just waiting for XBLDB to update to see if anything extra was discounted (unlikely).

@Post below, if the dash doesn't work, try buying it from the website. Which you may even be able to do off of the Internet Explorer app on the actual Xbox. Ironic?

You know, if they were going to mostly put GoD titles on demand, they could have at least put the L4D ones on sale since both of them were finally released as GoDs a month or two back, which is 3 years after the games came out on disk, lol.


Edit 2: Got bored waiting on Spylon's site to update so I started looking at the prices for the games in the Dead Arcade & Eerie Add-ons section. All full-price. I mean the fact that Dawnguard's in the list is a dead giveaway as well, Bethesda would never allow such a popular (and expensive) add-on to go on sale so soon.

For those of you who are struggling to hit that 2000 MSP mark for the 300 MSP back, don't forget that Sleeping Dogs' first meaty add-on, Nightmare in North Point, comes out on the 30th (next Tuesday) for 800 MSP, and considering the whole thing is horror-themed, it may qualify. It also has 125 GS of achievements (that were just posted to X360Achievements.org).

Looks like another lackluster Shocktober. I already have Bioshock 1 and 2 on disc and bought Alan Wake AN on sale last time. The only temptation is RE4 which I've always wanted to play but I want to get all the RE games on PS3 eventually. Hmmm...
