EVeryone should pick up Swarm for 160. I bought it at full price and love it.

Wow Civilization on sale for 800! Up until this very moment I'd been kicking myself for taking too long to decide to buy it last time it was on sale for 1200!
Edit: appears the op is wrong as spylon's site shows a lousy 1600...

Anyone knows for how long these 200 MSP prices are going to last?
I would love to buy Axel & Pixel and Winterbottom but I have to wait till the end of the week to pull the trigger.

Same here but I'm confident, as Marketplace deals usually last from Tuesday to Tuesday, so we should both be able to rack up some points during the weekend and score our targets :)

Axel & Pixel - 200 (600 off)
Misadventures of PB Winterbottom - 200 (600 off)


Damn, already have both of them, and I paid significantly more than 200 msp.
Alex & Pixel is a fantastic game. A steal at this price. Winterbottom was very visually interesting, I think I played it for 5 minutes before I moved on to something else. That's not saying it's not a good game, I just wanted to play something less "puzzly" at the time.

It's still very much worth it even at 1600 points. It's not as engrossing as the PC version, but it's a pretty decent experience for a console.

Under the Mafia II sales, Jimmy's Vendetta pack is not 400 according to the xbox.com website. It still says 800. Is that discounted?

I can never understand all the clamoring for this game. The demo was pretty crappy I thought. There's a reason they dropped the price so soon after it's release.

I've just been waiting for so long! I really enjoy platformers, enjoyed the demo, and enjoy the art style. There were never any codes to trade for on the trade thread, and add to that the fact that Europe got it on sale forever ago, but that sale never made it over to the States. It slowly became my XBLA white whale. (my 2nd one, my first one was Symphony of the Night because I passed on it like 3.5 years ago because there were like 20 good games on sale and so SotN was the odd man out. I remember justifying it to myself that "the graphics looked to crappy". It didn't go on sale for another year or so, it slowly became my first white whale).

So today is kind of a big day in my book. :)

EDIT: Here are 6 posts of mine from this thread where I mention Scarygirl.

Mecromancer definitely worth 400 points. Playing as her right now and it is tons of fun. Very unique skill trees and playing the Ordered Chaos tree changes the game up.

My only concern about the Mechromancer class is that I assume she doesn't have a class-specific Achievement, unlike the other classes. Is that correct?

Picked up the Mechromancer DLC for BL2, also bought the season pass over Christmas and yet I still need to get the actual game!

Might get Winterbottom, Axel & Pixel, and maybe Swarm since they are pretty cheap and will trial 'em but everything else is meh.

My white whale is Galaga Legions DX. It's been on sale twice on PSN and I passed the first time and spaced out and missed it again just a couple weeks ago. It's insane it hasn't seen a discount yet on XBLA.

I have it, but I don't remember if I picked it up on sale or for full price. From your comment I am going to assume I paid full price for it. There was a period where I had a seemingly endless amount of points so I bought everything out there. :)

Duke Nukem Forever (GoD) - $19.99 ($10.00 off) - LOL
Civilization Revolution (GoD) - $29.99 ($10.00 off)
NBA 2k12 Legends Showcase DLC - 800 (400 off) - Is that right?
Axel & Pixel - 200 (600 off)
Misadventures of PB Winterbottom - 200 (600 off)

PB Winterbottom is DEFINITELY worth 200 if you don't have it.

I'll most likely bite on Axel & Pixel, don't think I've seen it at 200.


I think everyone should pick up these without even trial'd them. Amazing prices. ;)


I couldn't possibly recommend Winterbottom more. I bought it for 800 right when it came out (probably about 4 months after I got an Xbox, I had no idea what CAG was at the time) and it's a really fun but never overly-challenging puzzler. 200 MSP is a killer deal.

As for Axel & Pixel, I've passed on it so many times at 400, looks like that decision finally paid off. I think I'll grab it for 200 MSP, espeically considering all the praise it has gotten in this thread.

Probably i would get Axel & Pixel, but at this price Winterbottom is a steal. It's pretty good.

Sales & Specials+ app

Pool Nation - 400msp (was 800)
Scarygirl - 400msp (was 800)
Swarm - 160msp (was 400)

I'll go with Pool Nation. :D


I think I'll probably get Pool Nation too, it looks interesting. Swarm is also HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for 160 MSP, and remember it has Avatar Awards too.

Damn, already have both of them, and I paid significantly more than 200 msp.
Alex & Pixel is a fantastic game. A steal at this price. Winterbottom was very visually interesting, I think I played it for 5 minutes before I moved on to something else. That's not saying it's not a good game, I just wanted to play something less "puzzly" at the time.


Definitely go back to Winterbottom when you're in the mood for a good puzzle game.

How about the Puzzle Quest DLC?


Yup. That's half the fun. :)

The price is right, but some of the reviews for Winterbottom are scaring me off with talk of the difficulty level. I am not a great puzzler... only got halfway thru Braid for example. Thoughts on the difficulty from those who have played it?

I actually didn't think the challenge level was that bad in Winterbottom, I didn't have to look up any solutions. But I guess to compare, I only had to look up the solution to one puzzle piece in Braid (still mad at myself that I couldn't figure it out). I have tons of experience with puzzle games even since my NES days, so maybe I'm not the best person to answer.

Scarygirl is my pleasant surprise of the week. I'll have to throw that one into the pile of XBLA platformers I've amassed in just the last month. Man... I wanna blaze through them all now, but don't wanna dry the well up when I inevitably hit a dull spot in The Next Great Actually Kind of Not Great First Person Shooter Campaign.

Oh, who am I kidding. I have enough of a backlog to keep me entertained through the end of time.

The Mechromancer, Future Soldier DLC, and Pool Nation are appealing to me too, but I'll wait and see how I feel later in the week.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.
