For Revelations, is the Lost Archive DLC worth the 400? Getting the game, dont wanna waste points for lame DLC


only if you like the parts of AC:R where you play as desmond. i hated that part and wouldn't pay to play it again.

I will agree to disagree with you on SP. DD on Iphone likely won't drop though. I think the devs are foreign enough that they don't "get" Ibuzz.

And Shank 2 is SUCH a marked improvement that I cannot even play Shank 1 again. It's just that good. While you wait, you should check to see the update notes for Shank 1. They went back and redid that to have right-stick dodging among other things.


Your probably right about Double Dragon on iPhone. It dropped to $2 last july and there hasn't been any change since so I might have to cave and just buy it.

Maybe I should go back and play through Shank 1 again. I really did enjoy it. I'm kind of expecting Shank 2 to go on sale during the holidays.

Only get it if you want the achievements. Seriously. It's awful. Watch a bit of it on YouTube.

They are decent but nobody is going to remember them down the line.


Speak for yourself. Best soundtrack for a video game in the past 10+ years, heartwarming 8-bit sprites/art style (by Paul Robertson), a movie game that's actually REALLY good = very memorable.

At least I didn't purchase it day one.


I did, and I love it still. To me, it's between Spelunky and Fez for XBLA game of the year.

Oh really? I watched the movie the day it came out, beat the game when it first released, but I can't believe I missed that this was a Comic/Graphic Novel. :applause:

I said "Movie Game" because there's not a lot of good ones out there, specifically ones that are 2D. That and "Comic Game" doesn't really have enough titles to form a genre, unless you're counting games like Arkham City, X-Men Destiny, any TMNT game, Gotham City Impostors, Marvel vs Capcom, or stuff like that because they're based off comic book characters. I don't hear people ever use that term.

Anybody here hate stealth games and play Splinter Cell? I hear about it being a departure or whatever but I really hate the stealth genre. However, playing through Dishonored twice showed me I enjoy more when I don't feel forced into it. I hated Deus Ex because it preached not only being stealth then gave no ammo or anything at the start.

My point being the reason that its good is because its source material is far more than a cheap movie tie-in cash grab.

I'm terrible at stealth games, but Splinter Cell is no where as unforgiving as Deus Ex, where if you put your stats in one thing over the other you're kinda fucked in playing that way. Splinter Cell gives you multiple paths to take down enemies, like say wait for a patrol to split up or put them in alert by destroying a car light then take them down one by one. That and it gives you enough bullets and gadgets to not make it too overwhelming.

Anybody think Dragonborn DLC will see a little price discount when XBL does holiday sales coming up? I want to pick it up but I know I wont play much in the next few weeks so I'd be willing to wait to see if theres a price drop, curious if anybody else is in a similar boat.

It won't happen. 360 has it months before PC and PS3 will, there's no point at all in doing so.

    too many games, not enough time

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 06 December 2012 - 06:52 AM

Haha ooga I've made that mistake a few times with the super cheap games, no more! Just played the demo and it all feels pretty uninspired, pass unless you looooove shmups made in this country. Art style looked just like everything was made of ghost boogers, rewind and FF features weren't enough to sell me on it. If still interested try the demo and see for yourself. Yeah it's only 200 msp, but people here often won't buy an 800 pt game and holdout for 600....

I played Zeit2 last night until I got stuck on this stupid lightening boss and decided to go to bed. I think Bajingo's assessment is a pretty good summary of what the game is about. I payed 400 msp, but had I paid only 200 msp would I feel that I'm getting my money's worth. There's certainly better shooters out there (Trouble Witches, Sine Mora), but fans of the genre should still check Zeit out.


I think Scott Pilgrim is a game with lots of charm, but I couldn't get into it like I did with Castle Crashers. The gameplay just feels....disconnected or something. I think Shank and The Dishwashers games are better beat em up cousins. Also, I haven't played it much, but every time I play, it seems I have to start the game from the first level?

I'm leaning more and more towards getting Ass Creed 2, even though my backlog is already full enough.
XBLA wish list: Phantom Breaker: Battlegrounds, Double Dragon Neon...
Xbox 360 wish list: Diablo III

No, this is selling for $19.99 on the us marketplace.
It is the Prince of Persia arcade game that is 400 msp.

No, in the low-tier GOD sale was PoP TFS. Pop 2008 didn't get a sale then and neither now, it's PoP Classic what's on sale for 400MSP. I'm with xbox_man on that.

I'm positive about this because I want PoP 2008 but won't get it for the price it has now (about 1280MSP in my country).

I need 1610 MSP left to buy all the DLC for the AC games, and I'm kinda angry that these aren't permanent. I won't be able to get enough during the sale. All the DLC for Revelations should be permanent price drops anyways. 800MSP for DLC achievements is too much, and 800 for Lost Archive is lame, but I love achievements, so I'll get them.

Just to chime in on the Spelunky discussion, I grabbed it on sale about two weeks ago and I have to say that its one of my most regrettable purchases on XBLA ever. I pulled the trigger based on nearly everyone who frequents this threads overbearing enthusiasm for the title, but I just see no magic in it at all. I can't seem to squeeze any fun out of it at all while playing, and its not due to the difficulty mind you. I just find it uninspired and would always rather be doing/playing something else.


I had the same response to Spelunky, although I only tried the demo. It has a really good reputation and I can appreciate that. It's well made. I can't really fault it for anything in particular. The mechanics just didn't click with me. It's got a Rougelike vibe to it, a genre or sub-genre I never cared for.

Thanks man. Sounds interesting. I'm leaning towards trying it out. The looming spectre of potential xmas sales is staying my hand a bit though.

I really wanted to like it, I just don't. I actually love Roguelikes but it does little to sway me in this case.

The only good thing about hearthfire is the farming and fishing where you can make ingredients easily. beats the hell out of walking around picking them or buying them.

And for those hoping Minecraft to be part of 12 days of XMas sale, well...

http://www.joystiq.c...k-units-a-week/

I Think I can see it POSSIBLY going for 1200 points first whenever it goes on sale, but 800 seems to be a big stretch anytime in the coming months.

I never expected 800, but I do believe 1200 is very likely during the countdown.

That is extremely impressive though.
