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.


Bastion was the first game on 360 I bothered to get all the achievements for. I loved it. As for BD1943 the PS3 community is still very active so I'd say it's a good sign that the 360 one is as well. You can also just download the demo and see for yourself.

I was hoping for the 10th anniversary sale there would be a bunch of $10 games on demand.

Finished the game just some months ago considering how long this game exists the online community is still strong with this one always had full games and no long wait to get in hum, I'd say it's safe to say, that it is one of those rare online arcade titles that don't die..

Okay, im downloading the demo now, didnt realize there was one (and me not using my head) i figured there wasnt one because its online only.

im assuming its an hours worth of gametime like CS:GO and MNC?

Bastion bro... Bastion! I really wish they would expand on The Kid and The Stranger... hell I just want more Bastion stuff

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


Yeah, don't pass on Bastion for 600msp. It's a very good XBLA game, not in my personal top 20 or anything, but still good.

Hmm, looks like Kung Fu Strike is gone from xbox marketplace. Any info if this is delisted?


That sucks. Game looked like garbage but delistings always suck.

Bastion or PQ1 and Geometry Wars?


PQ1 then Bastion than Geometry Wars 2 (just pass on Geometry Wars 1 unless you LOVE GW2, which is better in pretty much every conceivable way).

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.


I admit, i was a little "hot n' bothered" this morning, and when all is said and done, your right. Everybody gets to play it now (and i do enjoy it for the 400MSP i paid), and it IS a celebration after all. Im just going to save my points primarily for sales now.

Loved Bastion too, completed all the challenges (for the achievement you don't need to do them all) and the dreams.

Also, it has a very unique way of rising the difficulty (calling Gods in the temple), so you can sort of personalize your play.

I also think it's Fuck that the we get one free game and it's a Kinect game. Seriously who bought the Kinect?? Who still buys Kinect games?? I thought for sure every kinect game would be free or in the bargain bin by now. I would have got a kinect if it was anything more then a Wii attachment. It's not and now there is a good chance we are going to have kinect sensor built into the next gen console, reason enough for me to not buy one.

Also these anniversary deals sucks, I already got most of them but why not 75% off??? These games are old and have all been 50% off before. I will grab Wreckateer for the off chance I get a Kinect in the future.

I think you are smart enough to know that promos like this are used to entice people to buy Kinect. Hell I will once I find it in the $20 range.I do wish they used this 10th anniversary to give price drops and discounts to games that have been on here since the inception of XBLA and have seen no drops whatsoever.

Damn you Microsoft, we deserve all of those games to be free. It isn't fair you mean greedy company...................... :roll:

My family really enjoys the kinect and have a few games we enjoy playing together. While it isn't for everyone, the lazy types, it has sold well and the games are making better use of it. I love the integration of voice commands...

I already own every game I want on the list, but I do applaud Microsoft for giving us something.

IMO a free piece of crap is still a piece of crap.

I'm not saying people can't enjoy the Kinect, my view on it has always been if I wanted to buy a Wii, I would buy a Wii. Which at this point is a waaaay better deal then a Kinect and the sensor works much better. I dunno about you but I've been giving M$ $50+ a year (for years) and all I get in return is some shitty Doritos games (which I would get free either way).

The 10th anniversary celebration is a bit disappointing. The free game was deliberately made a Kinect game when not everybody has it, so that's more like Kinect marketing to celebrate Xbox Live and all of the people that made it a success over the years. The deals are good for what they are, but they're old/good enough that I have all of the non-Kinect games while Full House Poker's demo gave me more than enough content to satiate my desire for a poker game.

If you are referring to the cost of Gold, I have never paid $50+ a year. I think $40 is the most I have paid and it came with free MSP...

I would simply say that you are better off to stop paying them and move on rather then get upset/angry and venting on a random forum that they will never read.

I choose to support them as I enjoy their service and feel I get more than my moneys worth.

Life is too short, you need to enjoy it while you are here!

We'll, I bought Dance Central 3 (after having DC1 and DC2) so I guess I'm one person still buying Kinect games. :) Grabbed my free copy of Wreckateer earlier. I actually had a lot of problems with the demo of this game which is why I never bought it, and I'm anxious to see if that has cleared up. I mean it was not working right at all, unlike Dance Central and other games. Hopefully that was just a fluke and I won't see the problems now.

Bastion is massively overrated - the narrator shtick is old after 30 minutes and there was almost no reason for me to deviate from the mallet/musket combo even with the difficulty cranked - but I'd say it's probably the best deal you're going to find in the 10th anniversary sale, perhaps second to Castle Crashers. And both games sure are purdy.

It sucks that I have everything on sale, but hey, free Wreckateer! That makes up for the Haunt burn earlier this year.

I guess it's much easier to label something you don't "think" you'll like as crap, just to make yourself feel better about not owning it. I don't know if you've actually used Kinect before. It's nothing like the Wii mote. Although the library of stellar Kinect titles is somewhat lacking, there are several good titles out there.....including Wreckateer.

I really cant believe of all of this butthurt over these deals and wreckateer being free... im usually the one complaining once a week about the crappy deals too.

Im not gonna stick up for Bastion anymore, like i said before, its about as repetitive as a Legend of Zelda title is and I dont think thats opinion really...

Played BF1943 a bit, then it came to me... why? I am struggling to find time to play some matches of CS:GO as it is while Halo 4 rules my 360 right now. The multiplayer is everything I personally want for online play. The community isnt bad... yet. I dont know. Ill pick up BF1943 if some of my friends do, but i have ran it by 3 of my buddies locally that play on the reg with me in CS and H4 and none of them are really too interested :P

If you dont have Castle Crashers yet get it, but that can be said about all of the games on the list really. Im in for PQ1 this week, nothing on the Anny Sale, and no that doesnt bother me. Its not even something they HAD to do. They dont have to do the DotW really, but i would certainly hope that we would get a cpl weeks notice before that gets canned... (Knock on wood, i honestly am predicting all sales to be done through the S&S app within the next 6 months.)

I guess im done rambling, im gonna go play some Halo 4 now and set up Wreckateer to download so i can have access to it if i ever decide to get a kinect. Sweet deal if you ask me.

One hypothetical i guess... Your a 360 owner, and you dont have a PS3, but when you pick up a reserved game for your 360 gamestop gives you a free PS3 as part of a promotion. Are you really going to be mad? Wouldnt you hold onto it, add it to your backlog, and play it when the PS3 drops in price? I mean... we are all CAGs here right? Or am I missing something?

If you hadn't selectively quoted my post, you would see that I still think it's a worthwhile purchase, at least on sale at 600 points. I just don't think it's the end-all be-all game that so many seem to think it is. The hype seems to blow it up to a 9.5 game but it plays to me like an 8.0 title. But unlike some poo nuggets swirling around the gaming community, I think 8.0 is a great score.

One hypothetical i guess... Your a 360 owner, and you dont have a PS3, but when you pick up a reserved game for your 360 gamestop gives you a free PS3 game as part of a promotion. Are you really going to be mad? Wouldnt you hold onto it, add it to your backlog, and play it when the PS3 drops in price? I mean... we are all CAGs here right? Or am I missing something?


I filled in a word I'm pretty sure you missed :p I'd say the majority of us would be able to appreciate an offer like that. Much of the annoyance surrounding Wreckateer being free probably stems from the fact that it was discounted as recently as within the last month, so many of the people here that jumped then are feeling the burn, with Microsoft unlikely to soothe it. Those complaining about it being a Kinect game, or a low-quality game, or whatever else... I don't really have anything to say other than throwing "free is free" in their faces.
