Damn, unneccessarily bought a second MSP card. I was banking on Evo being 600, gonna pass at 800. (I realize it's probably worth it, I just can wait)

Can someone sell me on Dust? It sort of flew under my RADAR.


1. It's a Metroidvania with depth to the combat.

2. One guy made pretty much the whole game, from the story to the art to the game design to the coding. I think he may have had some help with the music, but that's it. Pretty impressive, and worth supporting that level of dedication, in my opinion, especially considering the level of polish on display.

Saying there's depth to the combat may be overstating it a bit, doesn't stop the combat from being really fun though.

Is trails HD a really hard and frustrating game? I would like to give the series a try and for 400 msp, it sounds like a good deal.

I say get it, it is challenging but satisfying is a better word only frustrating if you don't like a challenge. The controls are spot on, the physics are perfect, the only reason people think this game is hard is they don't have the patience to learn the levels.

Oh crap! Theyre catching on to us! The smoke and mirrors are failing us!!

It's the same reasoning behind poker chips in casinos. A chip is a lot easier to throw down than a $20 bill.


Although I agree with the analogy, when was the last time you bought poker chips at a 20% discount, eh? 8-)

As a CAG, I haven't bought MS Points at full MSRP (or "actual" retail price, for that matter) in YEARS.

Trials HD is definitely hard, I beat every level except the last in the main game and it wasn't from lack of trying. I maxed out my faults(500?) on multiple occasions. I'm hoping now that I bought the big thrills pack I can brush up my skills and go back and finish it off.

Trials evolution is much better tho I think with the track editor. I dont really make tracks myself but the ones people made on that r much better than the ones u can downlad on the original. Its like never ending dlc. Also evolution has multiplayer where the original is only single player.

So if I buy something on xbox.com then queue it and download it to my xbox, I'm able to redeem my profile on another xbox and play on that xbox while other profiles on where the item is originally downloaded can play it too right? Hope that made sense. TIA.

Thanks. Follow up question, I think there's a way where you use two controllers so you're able to share purchases. Anyone know if this was patched or know what I'm talking about, feel free to PM.

You're talking about this, I assume? You just transfer content licenses like you would if you bought a new console. All of the games I've gotten for free on different accounts still work for my main profile, so I would assume it hasn't been patched. Not that there's anything wrong with it anyway.

Didn't IGN claim that Microsoft would be doing away with Microsoft points this year? I'm going to hold out for a Dust Steam release since I don't want to buy 800 points when I only need around 500.

Considering there's only a week left in this year that rumor seems a bit...light.

Its not my GOTY, but it is much better than Trials HD. HD was a lot of fun, until the difficulty ramps up significantly. There's basically three parts to HD: easy, fun stuff; challenging stuff; brutally difficult stuff. And they're not equally distributed. I'd say 25/15/60. Whereas in Evolution, its much more evenly split between fun, challenging and brutal. Plus, the player-made tracks add a ton of free content. Track sharing in HD was a clumsy affair, but Evolutions has a simple set of menus for it.

That doesn't even make sense. Windows Phone 7 never used Microsoft points for games.
