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?


Might and Magic is fabulous. I would highly recommend it at that price. Never played the DS version, but I think they essentially redid all of the art for the console release so it looks really nice and crisp. The gameplay is kind of like a tactial Critter Crunch. If that sounds appealing, have at it.

Thats the most recent one right? Thats a hell of a deal. I've been wanting to pick that up on the cheap for a while. $10 with discounted points is awesome!

How exactly does the chain reaction deals work if you already have one of the items. I have the Catwoman pack so can I just buy the Bane mask and Robin pack, then skip straight to the Nightwing pack for the discount?

So we finally get a game for 75% off (Zeit) and it's one I've purchased at 50% off and never got around to playing. Sunnuvabitch! And From Dust continues to steer clear of 50%, so I continue to wait.

At least there's a hefty amount of DLC on sale, even if most of it has been marked down before. It'd be great if Microsoft could diversify DLC sales, since add-ons for certain games get markdowns constantly while others never budge. When will they see the light?

I'm in it for Knives Chau DLC, and perhaps Babel Rising and Revelations DLC later.

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

I am picking up AC: Brotherhood for 800 ms points, I have been waiting for a disc copy to get around 10 for quite awhile but had to jump on this since I won't need to get an online pass for multiplayer. It''s a pretty good value for 10 bucks or less if you were lucky enough to get on the target sale.

It's ok for 400MSP. The controls are clunky and frustrating, as it's a re-skinned game from 1989. If you need something to play, I'd say check it out. But if you have a backlog, there's no real reason to add this game to the pile.

It said Splinter Cell for 800MSP, but it's Conviction, and I was expecting the original. By the way, the original isn't even on Xbox Live, which is disappointing since I want to play the original so bad, along with Pandora Tomorrow.

I'd say so. If you've played the original game from the late 80s you know what to expect: old school gameplay with HD graphics.

If you're not familiar with the original then I'd suggest giving the demo a try. It gives a good indication of what the entire game is like. The combat is a little deeper than simple button mashing and the jumps require very specific timing. There's some very light puzzle solving elements here and there to break up the combat and platforming. It's not a very forgiving game when compared to more modern games, but if you're looking for a good challenge then you'll probably enjoy it.

I'm pretty sure you can pick up Splinter Cell and Pandora Tomorrow for less than $10 at gamestop.

OT:Im thinking about getting AC:2 I only played it once for like 30 min. but for $10 it sounds like a good price.Is AC:2 better than the other Assassins Creed games?

Tempted by Splinter Cell. Never actually played one of these games, but this seems like a great price for it (Gamestop has it for $13 used). can anyone recommend? I've been really digging Hitman recently. Is the stealth here in a similar vein?

Wonder if they missed it, AC: Brotherhood is still higher priced on the Hungary market.

I've been looking for a good deal on AC:Brotherhood used so can't beat 800 points for it.

Conviction is good stuff. It is the first (and only) Splinter Cell I've played and I had a very good time with it, good stealth and a couple stylish things I really enjoyed.

It's not all that long, but I believe there's also a separate co-op campaign that is really good as well, though I may be mistaken. I never played the co-op.

I've already played and beaten all of the Assassin's Creed games on PS3, so those are out the window.

Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes+DLC deserves some love. If you like puzzle/rpg type of style, then you'll enjoy it. I've passed on it the past couple of sales for 800 MSP, but for 600 MSP for the game and 120 MSP for the dlc it's well worth it and not so hard to get the hang of it.

Pulled the trigger on Clash of Heroes + DLC after missing it several times, but I've heard many good things about it and rediscovered my soft side for this kind of puzzle games... anyway, back to the waiting game for I Am Alive (one day flash sale, pwetty pweaze!) :bouncy:

Oh, and anybody has info about this, which popped up as TBA here?

I've spotted Ghosts'n Goblins and Black Tiger among others, and those two would be more than enough to give me a complete retrogasm! :bow: :bow: :bow:

Only heard that someone discovered those pics on NeoGaf. My guess is that it's a port of the games that appeared on Capcom Classics Collection (& Remixed/Reloaded) for PS2/Xbox & PSP. Based on the image, seems to have Vulgus, Legendary Wings, Side Arms, 1942, SonSon, Gun.Smoke, Ghosts 'n Goblns, Black Tiger, Commando, Higemaru, Trojan, Section Z, Avengers, Speed Rumbler, & more.

Once it's officially announced, I'll post something here.

The older Splinter Cell games have often been criticized for how the game essentially ends once you've been spotted. Conviction changes up the formula a bit. It's now roughly 60% stealth and 40% Gears of War. The gameplay has been streamlined a bit: there's fewer meters to manage and you don't have to waste time hiding dead bodies. When you get spotted you've now got enough firepower to fight back. The only major fault with the single player is that there's some blatant product placement (such as someone selling branded electric razors at a stand in the middle of a carnival).

Overall it's a pretty good deal at $10.

It's not classic splinter cell, but a fantastic new style of gameplay and a must play imo. If you have the storage room, get it.
