Do Case West and Zero have time limits like the retail releases?

Ducktales HD coming this summer to XBLA, PSN, & Wii U eShop, being developed with WayForward.


Freaking sweet. That was one of the two games I stole from my neighbors when I was a kid, the other being Super Mario bros 3. Def getting this.

So Case West and Zero are about 5 hours? Seems pretty good for $1.60 and $3.20

So it's a longshot, but does anyone here play Max Payne 3 with the DLC? Do people play online with the DLC ever? I'm curious about the Max Payne 1 remake levels, but I'm having a horrible time finding matches with the core game. I'm not sure if it's because I don't have the DLC and everyone else does, or if there's actually not a soul playing this game.

Looks like I'll finally be picking up Walking Dead and Dead Rising arcade titles. I know I'm late to the game on both, but ran out of points when they were on sale/or forgot previous sales. And DuckTales looks good, if it's fun I'll pick it up. Needs online co-op to play as the nephews, Launchpad or anyone else. HA!

can't wait for horse armor sale april 1st


I actually would buy horse armor for Skyrim. Because they would make it worth while this time. They've learned, besides I'm such a fan they could almost sell me anything at this point.

Besides Dragonborn there really isn't anything jumping out at me in the spring sale. That's mostly due to the ton I bought during the New Year's sale. I would love to see Braid, Crysis or Forza Horizon Season Pass. Been playing that like crazy. Non of that is going to happen though. At least I'm not the only one wondering where the arcade games are.

Ducktales HD coming this summer to XBLA, PSN, & Wii U eShop, being developed with WayForward.


I have to admit... this actually made me a little teary with nostalgic-joy. :cry:

Then I read the Capcom Blog and felt a pang of doubt/dread.

All the talk of expanding animations, bringing in the original remaining voice actors, and making sure scrooge is colored correctly, and then there's this:

DuckTales Remastered is currently set to launch this summer on XBLA, PSN and the Wii U e-Shop, and we’ve only just scratched the surface of what’s in store. We’ll have so much more to show in the months ahead, including the game’s new controls, additional areas, a Duckburg museum to track your progress, remixes of some of the most classic videogame music of all-time, and my personal favorite… A MONEY BIN YOU CAN ACTUALLY SWIM IN!


Hrmm, time will tell how far they stretch this into either a devoted, loving-remake--or into homage-levels of... Bionic Commando Rearmed 2.

So apparently the line to play Ducktales at PAX is 6-plus hours long b/c Capcom only has 1 demo machine up thinking it wasn't going to be that popular.

Not that I'm complaining but why is another Games on Demand sale happening so soon? Were the sales so good last time that they finally realized that games would sell if reasonably priced, or is it a last ditch effort to move some 360 product before the next console arrives?

if I remember correctly, they doubled the price of it one year for april fools, I thought it was pretty hilarious, I hope they do something similar this year.

off topic comment...... but uhh... why does everyone want horse armor so bad... ?

i just use the horse i got from The Dark Brotherhood, Shadowmere, i know he can die, and he takes 10days to regen... but he has a ton of hp and it regens really fast.... i've never had him die personally, and he often is taking 100% of damage from a dragon while i'm safely killing it....

Finally a sale for Dragonborn.

I'll probably get it, but it will be hard playing on Xbox again after being spoiled by Mods on PC Skyrim. Easily the best game enhanced by mods I have ever played.

If the next Xbox had something on the simple side of Mod integration / management like Steam's Workshop, I'd be in love.

If you only get one of the Dead Rising Arcade games, get Case Zero, It doesn't take as long if you are achievement hunting and I thought it was a damn good introduction to the changes in mechanics from the first Dead Rising. Case West is okay, but far more time consuming from a completionist's point of view. And if you really want a full dose of Frank, Off the Record on disc would probably be money better spent.

I'm downloading the demo for Just Cause 2, but which games are considered its peers? Since I don't spend a lot of time in this genre, I don't want to waste a lot of time playing lesser games when I could be playing the pinnacle of its type.

Best horse IMHO is the spectral reward horse from DG expansion. You summon him and then he goes away when you are done with him, I hate horses getting in the way of my entertainment unless they are Budweiser Clydesdales kicking field goals.

GTA San Andreas
Just Cause
Saints Row 2
Saints Row 3
To a lesser extent: Crackdown 1 and 2.

Thats about all I got.

I see it as a subgenre of sandbox where the main objective is to be as MacGvyer-ish as possible in the dispatching of your enemies. Use a gun as the last resort.

Edit: I also have a feverish desire to see a well polished Just Cause 3 be a launch title for PS4 / Xbox 720 or both. It would be at least 2 player co-op and add better environmental destruction.

Mercenaries 1 and 2 are the closest thing I can think of. Military-themed, open-world mayhem.

Maybe a dash of Saint's Row just because that series is so over the top.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

The doubt/dread hit me when I heard they were charging $15 for it. Additional areas would make the price more palatable. I also thought, at that price, DuckTales 2 might've been part of the package (never played that one).

Mercenaries 1 is one of the best games in its genre. The second game should be avoided.

Including the second one would be a nice touch, I also haven't played it.

I'd say Crackdown is the closest peer for Just Cause 2 in the sandbox genre this generation. Mercenaries might be a close peer, but I've only heard bad things about the sequel and the first is from the last generation.

Both are very reliant upon you exploring the world to find objectives to conquer that help you power up. Instead of the orbs and bosses of Crackdown, Just Cause 2 has the villages that you have to liberate by blowing up the oppressive items in the town, like water towers, propaganda trucks, and other things that show up in red that add to your Chaos that will open up new weapons, vehicles, and such that you can purchase in the black market. There are also a ton of collectibles as the three main gangs have items scattered about to find along with health and shield pick-ups to collect to increase your health and shield.

Just Cause 2 is easily the best sandbox game of this generation. It looks amazing, the world is huge and full of things to do, and it's a hell of a lot of fun to play. I've spent nearly 70 hours in the PS3 version maybe getting to 60% completion since I've still got a lot to do. The navigation with the grapple hook and parachute is a favorite of mine across the genre.

I already have it on Steam, played through it, and I want to see the new features in the XBLA version.

I put many hours into that game, I don't mind 1200 for this. It's like that rare occasion where I KNOW it's worth it to me even at full price, i.e. Spelunky, Counter-Strike, and Scott Pilgrim off my head.
