Gimme 75% off Quantum Conundrum, Harley Quinn, and/or Cold Stream and I'll get excited. Otherwise that list is weak.

I'll take any sales over nothing. Remember, we could just as easily gotten a 100% avatar sale. :-P

BTW, added the Saints Row 2 "Corporate Welfare" DLC to the OP's monthly markdown section. I haven't searched extensively to see if THQ is planning some sale, since it wasn't amongst the Black Friday DLC list, but given their financial issues, this may be a last-minute grab for $$$ before the title goes belly-up. If you keep meaning to play SR2, and have yet to pick up any DLC, then I'd grab it while it's still around (and 50% off).

Was there an update for the Nov. 23rd BF single-day event? Still seeing 800pts on the Xbox Japan page, no announcement from Major Nelson, and nothing on XBLDB either.

.

I just assume it'll be 560 I doubt we're getting a 50% off.

Yuck. Thanks for posting, that Japanese website has brought nothing but bad news. Quantum Conundrum is cool, but I just got it for "free" on that other console. Will maybe consider Expendables and Real Steel if their discounted by 75% or more. However, my guess is that Shadow Complex will be the game that gets the deep discount, as it's been around forever and on sale many times!



Have you played the demo? I tried to talk myself into it when it was $5 on PSN, but I thought it felt really bland and boring.

Yeah the demo clicked for me. I liked it.

How is Cold Stream not a deal at 280? It includes 4 other campaigns, one of which was DLC itself.

No brainer purchase if you're a fan of Left 4 Dead.

Can anyone give me a yea or nay on I Am Alive? I've got about 2000 points, which I was hoping would last me until a potential Christmas sale, but I thought the game sounded really, really interesting.

Any thoughts/suggestions are appreciated.

So many sales I've jumped on over the years.

When you add it all up, there is nothing cheap about being a CAG. ;)

I checked out the I am Alive demo and I'm thinking of getting it. It really does remind me of The Road if it were a game.

I pretty much already have all of the arcade titles I would want from this besides possibly Rock Band as I've never owned anything from the franchise (I know, seriously?).

What's wrong with me? I'm also thinking of picking up all of the Sega Vintage Collection titles. How many times can I play Golden Axe and Streets of Rage? How many times can I let Sega pull one over on me? New achievements and a chance to replay them again? No problem!


I'm thinking of jumping on those sega collections too. I already own Golden Axe since it was listed before, but I wouldn't mind playing through all three games with brand new achievements. I love the original Golden Axe, one of my favorite games of all time. I just wish this collection used the Genesis version of the original since I already have the Arcade version. I also wish they included the arcade sequel, is that included on any disc compilations?

I've never played Streets of Rage all the way through, it's one of those classic games I just happened to miss back in the day like Megaman. I love beat 'em ups, so I'm thinking of biting on this one as well.

Great job on the OP, Cornelius!

Well, I finally broke down and bought Left 4 Dead 2 on GoD along with the DLC on sale. I've been holding out for a lower price forever and it's just not happening, so I'd rather pick up the game and play it before the next Xbox system comes out. Sure, I paid much less for the PC version more than a year ago, but it's such a fun game, I'll easily get my $20+ worth on 360.


I'm a regular on L4D2 and had to replace my disc a while back as the inner circle cracked (happened to two of my friends as well). Anyway, $20 seems to be on the low end for a used copy and $30-ish for new. Thankfully, a friend mailed me his game as he quit playing it and then lucked upon a copy for $7 at a yard sale.

No idea if the discs were from a crappy run or else just the fact the three of us have been playing our games regularly for years and they've been going in and out of cases and pizza oven hot 360s.

After playing Daytona USA, I realized it wasn't as good as I had remembered it in the arcades but I think I am still going to pick it up anyways mainly because it is a super easy 200/200 achievement points.

is this DLC for saints row 2 worth it (my time, not the $3)?

i hate buying DLC for games if the DLC is worse than the standard game, i'd rather just skip it, IF i'd just have more fun replaying the game, rather than playing extra subpar missions. but if it's as good as the regular missions or better, i guess $3 is worth it. but yeah, worth my time? or should i just continue on and be content with the base game (only about 1/3rd of the way into the game. i do love it, but yeah, 3 had DLC that i didn't think was worth the time)

I Think it was about 30 minutes or maybe even less. You get extra vehicles and what not, but little real reason I can say it's worth it.

Anyone played the Cold Stream DLC, is it any good?

do u have the other DLCs for L4D2? bc if you do, cold stream unlocks all the missions from the first game, plus allows you to pick any mutator at any time. if you do, its def worth it. idk how much you miss out on if you're missing the other dlc packs though

idk if you'd know, but are the extra vehicles everywhere? or do they only show up at like, one specific spot? i guess if they just go everywhere i'd be down for it. but i don't want to buy it if like, they only spawn at one specific spot or something silly like that

I Believe they're right in your garage for use whenever once you complete the DLC.

Keep in mind it's really short (around 30-40mins) and disappointing dlc, that adds nothing at all. It's one linear mission and you are not able to explore or anything.


Haven't played it but that's how I view it too... Its going to have to be 75% off for me to bite, and it just won't be THAT discounted, so nothing for me on those sales...

Which is really disappointing, especially when I consider how good the BF week sales were, as I was expecting at least one of the season passes I'm after (Looking at four of them) would be on sale... I guess I'll have to wait to the Holiday Sales to see what they do.

I just don't see why anyone thinks it's fun. I enjoyed it back in the genesis days but its crap compared to most modern brawlers. Even older titles like final fight or double dragon aged better and offer more to the player.

I think rose tinted glasses are to blame honestly.

I'm not saying you're wrong, though I do disagree, but to me most modern brawlers are pretty soulless compared to the classics of old. (which includes SoR.)

Then again I think brawlers are one of the hardest genres to do right... as laughable as that sounds. So any of them that did it right past or present are highly playable to me.

Wait, what? SoR is practically the same thing as FF and DD. Control the crowd, then mash like crazy.

Agreed! SoR is especially fun still when you have a friend to play with you. Since beat em ups are harder to find these days (especially good ones), I'm all for a trip down memory lane.

Its not, and you didn't :). Cold Stream has all the levels from L4D, except Mercy, which comes with the Sacrifice. Cold stream is a new campaign that isn't considered canon.

So glad the two L4D2 dlc's went on sale. Just sold my copy of L4D and was waiting for them. Hoping Cold Stream and Shadow Complex do go on sale.
Not sure if i should get Leviathan, still waiting for the other Mass Effect dlc's to go on sale.
