What glitch?


Deal is dead but it was a pricing error the GS site selling 1200 MS points for $9.99

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Possibly because they're used to releasing games before they're ready? OH I WENT THERE :-#

Edit: in a similar vein, did Beyond Good & Evil "HD" ever get its patch?


Well yeah last gen I think it was acceptable for companies not to be expect any type of patch process on consoles. But now this gen Sony and Steams allows for unlimited and quicker patch processes (notice how sometimes PS3 users get a patch a few days, sometimes weeks earlier) where as Microsoft take's their sweet time getting around to certifying patches and also charges after the first one. Steam nor Sony do that so Micosoft just needs to be more fair.

I'm more interested how the Wii U works with updates because when a Wii game was bugged you were pretty much SOL.

But I'd like the next iteration of the DS to allow for patching as well. Look at the 999 sequel that has game breaking bugs that could have been saved with a god patch.

Let's face it, the developers bug testing skills are not what It use to be.

i couldnt have put that any better...

the sad thing is, 50% of gamers would probably give their firstborn to be a professional game tester for a major company for minimum wage and no benefits...

Where ya Crapcom? I need a job damnit...

DotW for Gold is the Deadliest Warrior franchise... a hit for some but a miss for most.

I enjoy the hell out of them, but i hate that the loading times for matches are sometimes longer than the matches themselves.

From what I understand, Q&A is part of the Microsoft patch validation process, hence why it runs in the tens of thousands of dollars after the first freebie patch.


Yep. Everyone conveniently forgets this. Microsoft dropped the ball on QA with the patch. That's a big part of what they're paying the money for.

Also, companies make decisions like these all the time. They realize "we're not going to make back in additional sales what we will lose by paying for another patch." He just said it out loud.

Are they actually cheaper? Because both Euro and AUD is strong currency compared to USD so 100 MS point in EU and Aussie is more value than 100 points in USA.

Am I right? Everything on sale are just axed for 33% or 50% on their current market price.

PS: wao, a lot of Ubisoft titles this week. head up for SC conviction and AC DLC

800 points for From Dust? Yeah, I can keep on waiting for that to be cheaper.

And I have a feeling Arkham City is going to become the new GTA and Bioshock of sales.

Not much in the UbiSoft sale I don't already have. Picked up Zeit just because it's cheap. Everything else that is even remotely decent I already have. I guess I'll save my points for a a Christmas sale that hopefully has some old forgotten titles.

The Scratch & Match selections this week cracked me up.

Ziet2 is not a bad game for 200MSP. Ubisoft must think From Dust is pure gold because they refuse to lower it by more than 33%. (It's actually a really enjoyable game, arguably worth 800, but at this point they could have easily offered it for 600). I think Rayman 3 is worth 400MSP as well, but it definitely shows its age.

I personally am debating the Prince of Persia Epilogue, as well as re-buying ACII and Splinter Cell for 800MSP each. Any recommendations for the PoP epilogue? I haven't actually played the game yet.

800 points for From Dust? Yeah, I can keep on waiting for that to be cheaper.

My sentiments exactly. Really disappointed it won't drop to 600 or less.

I guess I get another chance to pick up Might & Magic for 600. Passed the first few times it hit that mark hoping it would drop to 400 or less since the DS version could be had for next to nothing. Should I just go ahead and bite? I get the feeling if I buy it now it'll go 400 next time it goes on sale in a few months. Then again it's only 200 points. How cheap can I be?

Yeah, saw that. Since the game is on disc, I'm gonna pass.

In a way I'm kinda glad the DoTW's been stale (for me) the last couple of weeks, gives me a chance to save up for the much needed DLC for my backlog.
