It may be a little tough for a two year old to play. My four year old has a hard time playing it, kinda complicated for younger children.

Yeah, friend of mine just told me. He wanted to buy this game today.

I was lucky to get cheap code for this, even bought the challenge mode dlc, which was around 240msp.

So I thought the sale was going to be for Geometry Wars Retro Evolved, but on the Dashboard it's for Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2, which I already have. However the first one is showing up for 200, is it worth it if I already have the 2nd?

Well the first one is definitely harder and some of the features you might know from the second part are not available but if you want more of the same go get it =O

None... Game came out in September of this year.... Seems way too soon to have something delisted but I guess not.

It still has a entry on xbox.com (though its missing any possible downloads) unlike other delisted arcade games unlike Joust or smash TV so maybe it was done in error?

Sometimes took a while before they remove the banners. SEGA Rally online arcade is gone for 1+ months, but you can still find the game page on xbox.com.

If you're passing on one of the best XBLA games ever at 600, what are you saving your points for?


For what its worth, I personally found Bastion to be repetetive and mediocre in contrast in spite of the majority seeming to eat it up. Even the narrator I found to be underwhelming. I picked it up last year for 600 and have only touched it once. Doesn't hurt to try the demo beforehand if you're considering it.

Just came on here to express my disappointment with the sale as well. The majority of people who have had an XBox for anywhere close to the 10 years XBox Live has been around will already have these games. Whether they got them on sale or not, these are some of the best (and oldest) games XBox Live Arcade has to offer. And yes, I am also angry that I paid for Wreckateer and then they give it out for free so soon after it coming out.

Because of Microsoft giving away yet ANOTHER free Kinect XBLA title, I am OFFICIALLY boycotting the purchase of ANY Kinect titles from that service. I've bought nearly every one just days or weeks before they give it out for free. I'm pretty pissed right now... Off to work!


LoL YOU'RE pissed? It's a celebration of the anniversary of the xbox service and they give away a title that is essentially useless for a lot of the actual gamer type people that supported their system at launch but never wanted their "flail yourself around in front of this camera thing" peripheral.

Hey people got something, good for them. No reason to get too upset.

That's a shame about Kung Fu Strike. I hate to see a game delisted. Especially when I don't have it yet. Oh well.

I fully enjoyed Bastion. I don't understand the "repetitive gameplay" arguments. You know you can change out your weapons right? I used a different combo on almost every level. Really a borderline great game. Beautiful, fun gameplay (through I guess not for a lot of people out there), cool level designs, love the narrator (wish he had more varied dailogue though), and a decent story. I'm thinking it may be time for my second playthrough.

It would actually go against their own rules that they posted awhile back too. Those said the game had to be out for 6 months. I mean people have said that Arkadian Warriors would be delisted since like '08 and it's still there. Should be more to this story.

Sad though that a game would disappear as they have a sale on and they wouldn't try to sell some copies cheap first. Unless the game was broken but I never heard that was the case.

For everyone bitching about Wreckateer it's a solid game.

It's not only one of the best Kinect games but against "traditional" games it holds up as well.

Wait a sec, what exactly do you mean when you say out for 6 months?
If I understand right that means to be available for 6 months and then kaput?
Or there's a strict restriction on release dates or something???

I had no idea that there was a rule like that...!!?!?!

It's been pulled from a while. I asked the publisher what happened and they haven't responded yet. But you guys actually wanted to buy Kung Fu Strike on purpose? That game is terrible IMO, and I had been looking forward to it before release.

My Kung Fu Strike review


Yep i liked the game, completed it fully (400/400G) and as i said before - completely disagree with your review. :P
I was posted the reasons why, before, so there is no point from long-ass comment all over again. :)

Yay! I haven't been on Cag for a bit as the site was moving at dial-up pace for the last few days. I finally get back on board today to find that Wreckateer is free, gotta' love free games! I may also finally pick up Bastion this week but we'll see.

Regarding Catan and Carcassone. I highly encourage the purchase of both for people that like strategy board games. Although different, they are both excellent. I found Catan to be the better choice for online multiplayer and Carcassone better for solo play.

I suggest we start a petition that Microsoft stop giving away any free games at all, because they are running the risk of giving away a game you already have. They have ticked you off for the last time.

Oh, and another petition we should start is one that prevents you from posting ever again.

The only reason I would tell you NOT to pick up "Bastion" this week is because it is an unbelievably beautiful game from a very small team of not-particularly-wealthy developers. My suggestion is to buy it now, and then give another $5 directly to Supergiant Games (so they don't have to split that cash with Microsoft). "Bastion" is about as good a game- not an XBLA game, any game- as you're likely to find. It's fun, it's well-designed, it's interesting, it's sad, it's exciting, and it's worth paying full-price for. Not that a million people or so haven't said the exact same thing, and not that you're going to trust some random stranger on CAG, but those are my two cents.

Nothing for me with this particular sale- I own everything I would've possibly wanted and don't care about the rest- but I like how MS is celebrating Live's anniversary.

are people really complaining about a free xbox game on cheap ass gamer? you bought it a week ago, big deal, you got burned. you paid for something you found value in. every game gets cheaper after you buy it so what.

i don't even have a kinect but i still give them a thumbs up for giving something away for free; at least some people will get to enjoy it. it's really no different than giving away a free game that you don't like; i got joe danger 2 for free from raptr, i played it once and thought it was just really lame and i've never restarted it again, but hey it was free so whatever. think about it, what game are they going to randomly give away for free, that you would like, and don't already have? chances are you pay for most of the games that you think you would enjoy, so it's actually more likely that a random freebie isn't going to appeal to most. i really like happy wars and i hope they shoot up more f2p games like that.

Bastion repetitive? Only if you think The Legend of Zelda a Link to the Past or Secret of Mana was repetitive. Its easily (IMHO) the best SINGLE PLAYER XBLA experience you can get atm. I really dont think anything will top it. Bastion and its DLC is a must buy for nearly everyone at half price (dlc is only 80 MSP).

Im gonna ask again because i cant find any concrete info... is BD1943 still active? Over at the gamefaqs message board the newest post is like June of this year with no responses :P I have Halo 4 now (love it) and CS:GO love it too but havnt booted it up since last Tuesday. Should I pick up BF1943? Its one I have always wanted to own, but if its not active its kind of a pointless buy for me.
