Long story short ... you'll never see the S&S+ prices (for Scratch & Win or Chain Reaction or Mystery Wheel) in the Xbox.com or 360's own Marketplace ... you must use the crappy app.


Which totally sucks for me.

-----------------

Can anyone explain to me what Microsoft thinks a "deal" is?


Bing's (Microsoft) definition of Deal is:


1. business transaction: an agreement, arrangement, or transaction, usually one that benefits all the parties involved

2. bargain: something offered for sale on favorable terms


Listing a title like RE4 down to 800msp is a deal.

Listing a title like I Am Alive for full price...isn't a deal.

:lol:. No but really you havent played a RE game since #2. If I may ask, what the Fuck is wrong with you? As for as a reply, the gameplay is different. Go watch reviews or read the last 3 pages of this thread.

Not really. It's over the shoulder third person a la Gears. More action than survival horror. Quick-time events. The one thing that stayed the same is you can't move while shooting. Look up some reviews.

I guess they're not lying, really. It is the sales and SPECIALS app, after all.

Yeah, I know, they're still scumbags.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

Updated the OP. Reinstated GH/DJ/RB sale info that is still valid, and did a partial update on the S&S+ section specifically to help keep track of loser deals. It's only a partial update because I currently lack the patience for all the cross-referencing and copypasta necessary to fully flesh it out. That and I don't give a damn about anything but the loser deals.

Also: Though neither one is what I'd consider an OMG-must-have game, this is apparently the first time Geon and GripShift have been discounted - and they've been available for roughly 5 years. Food for thought.

Hey Cornelius, answer my email already!

What are people's thoughts on Leedmees? It looked kind of fun and I'm always looking for games to play with my nephew.


Leedmees was one of my first reviews too. Here is said review. Personally, I found the game frustratingly difficult due to the highly unresponsive and flat-out buggy controls. Some people don't seem to mind this (miraculously, to me), but it ruined the game for me.

How does Resident Evil 4 HD run on the 360? I had heard that the 360 version is the weakest of the ports. Is this true? Anyone who has it, is it fine getting it on 360 or worth waiting for PS3?


Said this a few pages back...

RE4's graphics on Xbox 360 and PS3 are just upscaled and don't show any obvious improvements. It does contain the PS2 version's bonus content and it's still a fantastic game, but a lot more could've been done to improve the port (such as improving the antiquated controls).

Here's my RE4 HD review.

I wouldn't call it the weakest port (from a technical standpoint it's only below the PC version), but the Wii version did at least enhance the controls, unlike the 360/PS3 version.

Hi, this likely isn't the best forum to ask this but I've noticed a few people in the past mention VPN. I moved from Canada to Australia last year, brought my xbox, don't want to migrate at the moment as I'm not sure if I'm staying here more than a few months right now. Anyways I bought RE4 the other day but every time I try to download it it's corrupt. Can anyone recommend a free way of setting up a VPN so that I can download it? Any VPN sites that people can recommend that I should look at? Feel free to send me a private message if you like so that this forum doesn't get too bogged down in things that don't quite matter to more than 1 or 2 people.

Thanks

If Bioshock 2 goes back to 9.99 I'll most likely pick it up along with the first one. Both for $20 would make for some good Halloween gaming.

But the true question is how much would YOU pay for your avatar to stand next to a "vine wall". For most people, it's probably far less than 50-cents.

They changed the items. The limited edition vine wall is gone...

Now you can get a zombie penguin, some robot, a 50's car, a grand piano, tennis racket, bongo drums...I'm going my memory, i might have missed one or two items.

I disagree entirely. Maybe it's not "True HD," maybe more could have been done with it, but it looks amazing compared to the SD versions.

It looks way better than the PS2 version and for $10 is a no-brainer.

It looks better than previous versions because it's been upscaled to a higher resolution. That makes anything look better; even DVDs. The actual textures, models, etc. in RE4 have not been improved. Graphically, it's based on the GameCube/Wii versions (which did indeed have superior graphics compared to the PS2 game) with the extras of the PS2 version.

Thinking of picking up RE4 and Alan Wake AN. I have a bunch of stuff to play already, but I've wanted to check out RE4 HD for a bit now as I honestly cant recall much of that game other than the first hour or so because I probably have started playing it a half dozen times over the years since finishing that first time on PS2.

Oh, I get it. It's not a reason the game should be reviewed any worse and shouldn't prevent anyone from wanting to pick up the game. Especially for $10.

Now we're in agreement. At $10, it's definitely a must-buy for anyone who has never played the game or would like to play it again on a modern system.
