The XBLA version of Walking Dead had some severe frame rate problems. I wouldn't say it ever became unplayable, but it was very noticeable. It seemed to get better in Episodes 4 and 5, maybe by then they had a better understanding of their engine and what it was capable of.

I can imagine it would be much worse playing from the disc drive. Is it possible to install the retail disc version to the HDD like normal retail games?

Borderlands season pass deal already? Damn. Oh well. Lesson learned for BL3.

Can anyone comment on Rayman 3 HD? Origins was probably my favorite game of 2011, and I'm anxiously awaiting Legends. Origins was my first Rayman game, is 3 worth grabbing?


Rayman Origins, i.m.o., is an absolutely fantastic, creative, and beautiful 2-d platformer. Rayman 3 is less "old school", with a 3-d layout. I loved Rayman 2, but only played the demo of the R3 360 version, and it was okay.

I recommend you play the demo and see for yourself.

Is there a definitive answer on whether these deals apply to all members of Xbox Live, Gold AND Silver accounts? How did it work last year?

The two day passes haven't worked on "Gold Member" deals in the past.

I just wanna know prices. 50% on everything seems very unlikely
(Actual register date 3/3/2009, not sure why I switched accounts)

That's what I was worried about since the ones I'm interested in are Deal of the Days. I guess we'll find out next week!

The thing that stands out the most to me is the Borderlands 2 Season Pass.

Fez for me. Mark of the Ninja is tempting, but I know I'll be able to get it on Steam eventually for cheaper. Doubt I'll pick up anything else - TWD is also an eventual Steam Purchase.

Anyone who has a spare 1600 Microsoft Points code and is interested in getting Skyrim for Xbox 360 want to trade their points code for a Skyrim download voucher code? If so, give me a PM. I don't need the code since I already have Skyrim on my PC, but could definitely use the points for this sale.
Wii U!?! I don't think you could possibly give a game console a worse name!!!

I'm definitely in for the Borderlands 2 Season Pass, Fire Pro, Mark of the Ninja, and both Skyrim DLCs. Maybe Deadlight and Hell Yeah, if I have the points left over.

I've found most Telltale games have frame rate problems. None of them are that graphically intensive, they really need to optimize their games better.
I've even noticed frame rate problems when running a game at the same settings on two computers of wildly different power, so there doesn't seem to be a way to ever fix the frame rate problems.

Digital distribution is the death of the preservation of the arts.

How difficult is trials evolutions? I tried the demo for hd and it seemed like a ton of trial and error to get past some of the demo levels. I can't tell if the games just aren't for me or If I just didn't give them enough time...

If you've played Trials HD then you'd know what to expect gameplay wise.

If not then yeah, the game is alot of trial and error. Each bike controls differently that it provides it's own challenges in knowing when to lean, accelerate or brake, but it's still alot of fun especially with friends and leaderboards. It's not for everyone, but it's one of those games where the greatest reward is nailing a level with no mistakes after playing it over and over again and just fucking nailing it.

Though make no mistake, the last few levels in the game are ridiculously challenging as in not everyone will have the patience or skill to pull it off, but even then the mini games and all the user created content (both new courses AND games entirely built using the Trials engine) brings alot of replay value.
