...I also made a bit of a format change for the new listings. Instead of listing the prices as "XXX ($Y.YY) Microsoft Points" I used "XXX MSP ($Y.YY)". Always bugged me a little having the dollar value in the middle like that...

I think this is a good format change, nice work.

Ended up buying it just now. I've heard terrible things about the coop but I've decided to give it a shot.


I hadn't heard anything about the coop but I picked up and played about 8 hours over the weekend with my nephew and brother in law. It was a blast. The game is awesome and has so much replay value. Well worth it for singleplayer and multiplayer. Deathmatch default settings don't feel perfect but with a little tweaking the deathmatch mode is pretty awesome.

I highly recommend Gotham City Imposters for 600MSP. Bought it at full price at release and have no regrets. Still playing weekly sessions w/ my friends and haven't had any trouble finding matches. I keep thinking I'll get tired of it every week before we play, but it never happens. Highly recommended, but I'll admit it's better if you have someone to play/chat with.

I said this, because Gotham City is FREE. So what's the point from your comment then, dude?

It's not free for this platform so it being free on something else is meaningless.

People like playing their consoles on their couch or in bed, and yes, I know that people can hook it up so you can do all that but that's a very small number of people. Also it costs more to set up a PC to do that so your argument about the game being free elsewhere means that the total costs is higher then it is here.

Had I gotten any of those $10 points cards I would have sprung for I Am Alive, but I didn't and eventually it will be 1/2 off so I'll play the waiting game.

Had to thrown down for SVC: Monster World collect. Sega sure cranked out some gems back then.

Waiting for a SVC: Zillion collection or Shining Force one too!!

I'd be all over Zillion in a second. I wish they'd do a collection of puzzle games -- Baku Baku Animal and Penguin Land both come to mind. I spent hours playing Baku Baku on the Saturn.

Each of these are currently 960msp on Hungarian marketplace. ;)

Not sure if it's been posted recently (I'm sure it has been at some point) so others might benefit from this question too...

I made up a Hungarian account...what's the best way to put points on it? Bing? How about buying cards on amazon?

I personally think that's the whole problem. Why should publishers charge money for a digital game on one system and offer it for free on the other? I don't know if there are any differences between the two versions in terms of extras, but the Steam version has 412 achievements and runs on my 2007 desktop. Just seems like an underhanded marketing tactic; it's not done on individual basis or anything, one group of gamers simply gets your paid content for free for the lulz.

I'm an indiscriminate gamer; I'll play whatever interests me regardless of system, and I migrate to whatever version is cheapest. I just don't think it's right that people have to pay for 360 games I can get for free on Steam. Goes for L4D2 DLC as well.

It was a paid 15 dollar game at one point on the PC... and, actually, I'm pretty sure it still is as you can, or at least you could, buy it via GfWL so its not so much a underhanded tactic as one to make sure their as profitable as they can be.

I would KILL (yes I do mean murder someone) if they put one out with a fully translated Shining Force III. Shining Force II is probably my all-time favorite game.

It was half off within a month and a half. The F2P and previous iteration are two separate entities.

I don't get why they just didn't make a Vintage Collection out of the AM2/Model 2 fighting games. I'm sure some people are glad it's 400 MSP/$5 for just 1 game of their choice rather than 800 MSP/$10 for three (plus knowing Sega, they'll be on sale for 200 MSP, totaling 600 MSP/$7.50 for all 3), but just seems kind of weird considering they did 4 collections of games, but then 3 fighting games built around the same arcade board aren't bundled together in a collection.

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.


add me to the list too fellas, i have a few friends who have it as well... im still wondering which DLC packs I should get.

I played the demo last night, and well... anything running on the source engine is a friend of mine.

As for the GCI queries. I loved the SHIT out of that game from December (beta) to April... then the multiplayer took a dive and most matches you find now is fill full of nothing but exploiters. When the game went free to play on steam the XBL community went with it i suppose.

It works better for those who care about gamescore though:

Individually: 3 X 400 = 1200 GS
Collection: 1 X 400 = 400 GS

I seem to remember someone digging up a leak that revealed the next DOTW being a retread of DLC we've seen on sale a hundred times before. I would love to be wrong, though.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Yes, GTA IV content, if I remember correctly.

If it is GTA IV DLC (yet again) then I'd only finally buy it if it turned out to be 200 points, which it goddamn should by this time.

Really hope for another bout of "fighters DLC" on sale:

Still waiting on SF4 Arcade expansion (Still at $15) and MK season pass (for those of us with the orginal game--non-Komplete edition). MK Season Pass was on sale last year and I can't even recall the last time I seen SF4 Arcade DLC on sale.

Also wouldn't mind seeing Trials Evolution or SKullgirlz :0. Far as I can tell neither of these been on sale yet.

I wouldn't rule out Skullgirls being discounted soon. If nothing else, the people working on it could use the publicity after falling off the face of the earth for a while. http://www.joystiq.c...work-on-series/

Perhaps I'm too optimistic for a discount, but it's a fighter I'd actually love to have.

Hope that's a sign of some sort for MS to do the same, I also want skullgirls (I even would buy it for 800MSP). Also, because dreaming is free, a sale on SSF4 costumes would be very nice (I hate you, CAPCOM).
