Do not let Activision bury Singularity. It's fantastic and you need to play it

Singularity is a good FPS, if you don't mind that it's heavily influenced by BioShock. Rise of Nightmares is supposed to be pretty crappy gameplay-wise, but it's something for Kinect that's not a dance game or minigame collection. Red Faction: Armageddon wasn't as good as the previous one, Two Worlds 2 is better than the first but still not great. Trials/Limbo/Splosion 3-pack is absolutely worth it. Never heard of Blood Drive.

Oh, and that Two Worlds 2 game is PC only for the $10.00 ...Wish it were Xbox!

I just finished singularity about a week ago. Get it, it's great. My only problem at all with the game was no option for subtitles. Gave me a little motion sickness as well, but nothing some ginger root capsules/ benadryl or dramamine won't fix.

I played through about 70% of it before I traded it in (to take advantage of high value and promotion at Best Buy). Game is decent, but the controls can be tiring at times as well (detections isn't 100%). Lot of cool weapons and slashing. I think it would have turned out pretty well had they allowed the option to play with a controller in addition to the Kinect controls.

Think I might pick it back up at this price to finish it (and get the Avatar awards linked to it).

All the other games that people have listed are either Newegg's normal price, or under different promotions. The games I've posted are for this promotion only and the sale ends 12/5.

Who are those people?

I don't know either. I don't watch TV besides PBS so that may have something to do with my lack of reality show knowledge.
Edit: Quick Google search shows they were shown on a reality show called "Breaking Amish." I dealt with with real life Amish people back in 1999. I don't know how they're being portrayed on the show, but I found them to be among the most humble and hardest working people I've ever met.

Okay so it's worth it for $10 then. Is the game on rails?

This questions begs the answer: Try the demo! It's not on rails (it does have a semi-autopilot for some areas), but it's definitely something you should try out first. I wanted to like the game so much but I can't see myself playing it for more than an hour total. That still puts it higher than Haunt, which I could only stand for 10 minutes.

That was like a year or two ago, doubt gamefly will be including it in sales anymore considering how old it is. Might as well jump on this because you're not going to find it new in many places at this price point

The demo for Rise of Nightmares is enough, imo. No need to buy the game...you'll get all your enjoyment for what the game is simply by playing the demo over and over. It's not like you'll be hooked on the story.

Rise of Nightmares, to me, felt like the old PS1 days of seedy "scare" games like that banned fighting game Thrill Kill. The "atmosphere" of the game is very much like those. Not a lot of production value...

Used copy for $5.49 + 2.28 shipping. Or you can wait for the free shipping promo that they run every so often and hope that it's in stock. It's common knowledge that buying used from goHastings is a gamble so YMMV.

Your other option is to see if you have a Sears near you that carries it. Doubtful if they have any in stock because they were clearanced out a long time ago for as low as $3.97 (?) or something.

Still recommend this game new over saving a few bucks.

I guess I'll pass on it then. Any opinions on Two Worlds 2? I played the first and it was pretty bad.

Second game is leaps and bounds improved compared to the first, but it's still pretty clunky in parts. The spell system is pretty interesting, but I would recommend you check out some gameplay videos to see if it's your cup of tea.

The game should have a "Benadryl not included" tag?
I got motion sickness from Stacking and Iron Brigade. I think I'll stay clear of this one.

Yeah, I'd def pay the extra $1 for the new copy. If you want used get it from Gamefly. Atleast you get everything with it including the online passes. Gohastings is terrible.
