Wreckateer - FREE

Battlefield 1943 - 600msp (50% off)

Castle Crashers - 600msp (50% off)

Fruit Ninja Kinect - 400msp (50% off)

Geometry Wars Evolved - 200msp (50% off)

Bastion - 600msp (50% off)

Peggle - 400mp (50% off)

Full House Pocker - 400msp (50% off)


I am going to go out on a limb here and predict that Japan's the only region that gets Wreckateer for free -- I would suspect it's full price for everybody else.

All of these other games have been on sale many times so this is kind of disappointing for folks who were hoping to see something with newer games. Fez, I am looking at you.

Would have purchased I AM ALIVE if it was 50% off. I am cheap... ;)


Second this. 33% off just doesn't cut it for me either.

Disagree, I bought Wreckateer for 400 points a few weeks ago, so I guarantee everyone's getting it for free now :D

The DLC Price for Puzzle Quest 1 is bothering me too 700 MSP? Seriously? for 50 GS? and the main game is now even cheaper...come on MS!

I wish they would make some massive price cuts like the time where Lost Odyssee DLC got cut to 80 MSP (and Kameo and PGR 4 and some of the other titles...) man those were GREAT price cuts...

I challenge this. I bought FHP to learn how to play poker. When I started I had no idea how to play and now I'm an average player that understands the rules just fine. I'd still never play IRL because I can't keep a straight face when I'm buying beer and I just turned 29 last week...


I challenge your challenge with my own anecdote. I used to watch WSOP with my grandfather when he was still alive, and I had a great understanding of the game. It's all psychological, with bluffs and tells and faking tells to coerce your opponent into losing more. One of the developers gave me the game for free on Twitter last year, but when I started playing I realized this is nothing like the real thing. There are no tells or bluffs or things that make Texas Hold'em what it is, and there is no commitment or sense of meaning to anything you're doing, especially when playing against other people. The real game is about the people you're playing against, not the cards; this game lets you play hyper-aggressively all the time without knowing anything about your opponents. The developers did a decent job with what they could, but they didn't come anywhere near capturing the concept.

For all that it has, the game is very shallow. Aside from hand values, which you could've looked up online by the way, the game teaches you nothing about how to actually play poker. If you played it to learn poker, then you've learned wrong.

I went to the Guardian Heroes page to make a last-minute purchase at the 400 MSP price and then realized I needed to redeem my 1600 MSP card to make the purchase. In the entire ~30 seconds it took to do that, the price went back up.

My unbridled rage may have startled the neighbors, but the game will almost definitely be on sale again, so it's gonna be OK...

Can't count on noon on the dot anymore...

It's gonna be OK...

Bought some damned GH songs to soothe the beast.

I could be confusing you with someone else, but you seem to miss at least one deal you want weekly.



In regards to the puzzle rpg hybrids, I've played Puzzle Quest one and enjoyed it, and I believe I'll get enough enjoyment from the second to warrant biting on it. What I am wondering is how do games such as Galactrix, Gyromancer, and Puzzle Chronicles stack up in comparison?

PQ 1 & 2 are really great, I've played them both multiple times. I broke down and paid full price for the Plague Lords DLC when they had a spent so many points, get some back promo. That justified it to me since it's NEVER gone on sale. Worthy DLC too even at full price. :applause:

I also like Puzzle Kingdoms too, very fun & similar to PQ. Available on your DS or Wii.

If you missed out on Might & Magic Clash of Heroes game, wait for that one to go on sale again as it's a blast.

You know, it kinda makes sense that Wreckateer is going to be free next week because there is no Kinect Central deal on the week of the 20th. That and I bought it too.

So far, unless the next Scratch and Win game next week has something awesome it looks like I'll be saving up points for once.

No... you're right. :)

Luckily my work situation is straightening out and I should be fully capable of returning to my wasteful ways soon. On the other hand, having to pass up so much these last few months has opened my eyes to the virtues of patience and sometimes saying, "hell no I don't want this"

Also, sorry for caps lock but COULD SOMEONE PLEASE PUT FEZ ON SALE ALREADY?

Yeah, I've been waiting on Clash of Heroes ever since I passed last time, I didn't research it enough and though it appeared mediocre. Regretting it.

I'm pretty sure Puzzle Chronicles is pretty meh, I remember having a code for it ages ago that I traded being not interested. I've heard negative things about Galactrix but still.. curious seeing as how its from Puzzle Quest. Gyromancer however I find myself really interested in picking up, though I didn't give it a second glance the last few times its been on sale.

I may be picking up a Wii in the relative future so perhaps I'll check Kindgoms out then but as far as my DS goes, I've only touched it for like a month after getting it. I don't know what it is but handhelds don't satisfy me the way they used to.

I'll bite on I Am Alive for 800. Best I can hope for later is 600 and that's only another $2.50. I was patient and saved $5. So that's fine.

Just some words on Gyromancer...it's the lesser fun, poor quality copy of Puzzle Quest, I could never bring myself to buy the full game (I tried the demo several times) knowing Puzzle Quest is so much better...

Gyromancer is very similar, but I didn't have quite as much fun with it. You also have to rotate the gems in that one (either clockwise or counterclockwise I believe) which I don't find nearly as fun as the regular Bejeweld/PQ gameplay.

Isn't Puzzle Chronicles the game where you put together jigsaw puzzles?

Already own all the puzzle games I'm interested in this week and have no interest in I Am Alive next week. Here's hoping for some good anniversary / black friday sales. If that japanese listing is correct, I'd take Wreckateer for free and would probably bite on geometry wars for 200 MSP. Don't have the compilation disc it came on and managed to miss it if its ever been on sale before. Guess we'll see.

Yeah I knew about the rotation thing, apparently its only clockwise unless you have an item that grants you the ability to spin counter. I was kind of interested in the fact that you don't take turns as you do in the Puzzle Quest series, its just you either doing well or poorly. The enemies attacks come from you using the rotation too often without a match and some other factors which drops a countdown piece into place. You need to pop the piece before the timer expires to avoid its wrath.

Puzzle Chronicles has the appearance of a shoddy Puzzle Quest, but I haven't tried the demo so I can't say for certain. Not a jigsaw compilation though.

What you said about Gyromancer is all correct, it's coming back to me now. It is a little bit different in that the enemies attack you in a different way. I started getting stuck about half way through the game because I wasn't all that great at the clockwise rotation. It's also extremely long, like PQ1 and 2. It definitely got grindy and boring to me as well, the difficulty wasn't the only thing that turned me off.

And you're right, I confused Puzzle Chronicles with Puzzle Arcade, which is the jigsaw puzzle game.

As someone who bought I Am Alive at full price when it launched, I can't recommend it at 800 because that's what it should have launched at. It has a lot of great ideas and alot of challenge but the controls are cumbersome and messy.

That's tough to say, I love them both to death, but probably start with the 1st one. If you've got a PS2/PSP/Wii etc, you can also get them pretty cheap on those consoles too.
