Should I call you OJ the Juiceman or Juicy J? Either way, I'd say bite on Metal Slug XX just because a) I love Metal Slug, even if it does suffer from a Dynasty Warriors-esque syndrome in which the franchise barely evolves, and b) after this long it doesn't look like it's going to be due another sale very soon, or a price cut ever.

I am DYING to find out these Cyber Monday deals. Expendables 2 and Real Steel have such horrible Metacritic scores that I can't bring myself to bite at 50% off, but if they're dirt cheap then chances are it's the cheapest they'll ever be and I'll be prompted to bite then.

Didn't get the SVC Packs Golden Axe and Streets of Rage too but bought Monster World and Alex Kidd..already have them on my Genesis Collection too and both are not that interesting for me...the other two games collectiosn were more appealing =P Also got a copy of Joetam & Earl so I probably have my SVCs for now =) hum

Didn't buy anything on BF, maybe will dig some stuff tomorrow..also looking at amazon cyber monday deals will last until 30. (at least over here) maybe I will find some stuff on there...

Looks like the Monday deals are in effect.

Shadow Complex is 800 pts instead of 1200. I was hoping for 600, but oh well.

God dammit. How long is it going to take for this game to drop lower? How old is it now?

And yeah, the prices are in effect. Real Steel is 400. Haven't checked the others though.

EDIT: Yep, prices confirmed. All of the prices in the OP are correct aside from Shadow Complex which is 800 instead of 600.

How do XBLA sales usually operate? Do they regularly revive old games and put them up for sale?

I was looking at the price history for Shadow Complex, and it went on sale several times during 2011 (cheaper than 800 pts....), but it hadn't gone on sale at all for this year until today's lukewarm discount.

I'm fine with just getting Cold Stream since Black Friday (or dealmageddon week on this site) wiped out money and gave me more backlog then I can ever try to conquer.

Well I feel victim to the DLC gumbo of Darksiders II. I knew I had codes for Argul's Tomb yet for some reason I bought that 2 days ago instead of the Death Rides DLC. So today I am looking at Death Rides thinking why it does not show up as purchased and Argul's Tomb does when it dawns on me I bought the wrong dam DLC. My fault but when you have so many pieces of DLC it is a pain to keep everything straight.

Quantum Conundrum is a quality game for $7.50. The biggest annoyance is definitely the first-person platforming, it's not way too bad for trying to beat a level, but I expect trying to beat the level under the par time, it will cause a decent amount of cursing.


Agreed. I just powered up the first generator and I'm not even sure I'm going to see it through - there's no way I'm doing any speed runs or shift runs. No chance. This game has a ton of unrealized potential. The first person puzzles are really fun but they seem kind of the same from room to room. Gee, another safe and another cardboard box?


Holy crap... just died about 3000 times trying to jump across a pit on to furniture that was moving in slow motion. Ugh.....

I can confirm that Gotham City Imposters is indeed on sale for 600 MSP right now. What everyone's thoughts on it for Xbox? (I know of steam version already) Sucks Shadow Complex is 800 MSP, because i saved 600 exactly, thinking it would be half-off.

Wow, more like Cyber Mundane, amirite? I thought for sure at least ONE item out of TWO days of one-day deals would get a super-steep drop, but nope. A few more points saved I guess.

nah srsly... you trying to co-op if i pull the trigger?


You make it sound like I'm propositioning you. :p But I'm down to co-op Metal Slug XX or just about any damn thing; I've bought almost every XBLA game that's ever gone on sale and have a pretty hefty physical library also. It's just a matter of when I have the time.

Have you tried calling Microsoft about a refund? It may end in disappointment but reaching out is better than nothin'.

I'm interested in the monster world collection, just for monster world IV. Not sure if it would be worth it just for that.

I would wait for a disc release of the vintage collection, but i'm not interested in much else aside from Toejam and Earl

I have it on Steam, so I can't really say for sure because all the DLC is free and downloads automatically, but out of the listed DLC, almost everyone plays No Mercy. Over half of all active games in Versus and Scavenge are No Mercy maps, outdoing even the regular L4D2 maps. It's a given that the Cold Stream DLC pack is more enjoyable to play, but if you want lots of MP, buy The Sacrifice + No Mercy.

Passing and Sacrifice go hand-in-hand. Both end on the same level, in Port.

I've learned to be very wary of MP only games on xbla. There's just too many games out there right now, a community dies to fast on those (exceptions such as bf1943).

Cainiac, I'm sold, adding stuff to que now. Cold stream sale is up I believe too.

So you must agree that the pc version is the way to go if you have a computer that can run L4D2! I bought the 360 version on release as well as all the dlc up until cold stream. Once cold stream came out I jump shipped to the PC version.

So Shadow Complex appears to have been slashed by 33% only -___- (so it's 800 MSP).
Bloodforge and Gotham City Imposters are also on sale for 600 MSP each along with the rest of the stuff listed on the main page.

Don't say that! I already bought half the Dreamcast collection and 3/8s of the Capcom collection before their respective discs were released, and I'm still kicking myself for it. Even though the load times on the DC disc are not good, if I remember correctly.

Bloodforge and Gotham City Imposters are also on sale for 600 MSP each along with the rest of the stuff listed on the main page.


O rly? I could go for Bloodforge.

I picked up Bloodforge last time it was on sale (or maybe I bought a cheap code... I don't remember) and it remains deep in my backlog...

GCI, on the other hand, I got when it first came out as I really loved the demo. If you really want a zany FPS to brake up the CoD blues I cannot recommend it enough. (I've invested 73 hours into it according to Raptr.)

All that good said... I've not played it recently so I have no idea how populated the servers are... So I really recommend trying the demo.

As for the XBL sales.... Looks like MS had all their good deals in their stores this time... :cry:

So I played a few demos...

Real Steel: Robot fighting game. Woo. I am possibly the worst player of fighting games that ever lived, so for this game to feel way too easy is mind-blowing. I'm sure it's more difficult as it progresses but it still gives me pause, still makes me wonder how entertaining it would be over the course of a few hours. I just don't think I'd dig it, so at 400 I'm passing.

The Expendables 2: Isometric run-n'-gun action, my cup of tea! It has low-budget written all over it but I think I could actually enjoy it if I can cope with how vanilla it is. Really the only thing that bothers me is not being able to easily discern where my bullets are flying. Seems like cheap thrills. 600 points still seems like too much for it, but I have to admit I'm considering it.

Bloodforge: Like the other two games, this one has an atrocious Metascore - but for what it's worth, it does have the added benefit of a title update that tweaks the much-maligned camera and smooths out the difficulty. It's unashamed in its straight-up ripping of concepts from God of War, 300, etc. but I thought the combat was fun enough. There's no blocking, only attack after attack with the occasional dodge, though I almost never remember to use the block function in games anyway. heh. The art style leaves a little to be desired but I appreciate the graphic novel vibe they were apparently going for. I think I'll be picking this up to satisfy my hack and slash cravings. There's almost no sense in skipping the demo since it only lasts for about five minutes... no joke.

It's possible that since we are at the end of the month, Bloodforge and Gotham City Imposters are price drops...just a thought. Won't know until xbox actually advertises the cyber monday deals...

Edit: just noticed they were both half off. Usually they drop from 1200 to 800 on price drops so it's probably part of the sale
