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.


I dont mind paying the price because of its replay value its one of those games were you can keep play and never get bored like Minecraft I payed $20 and dont regret it becausr I have put over 100 hours on that game.

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....


Because I want my horses to look badass...and take a ton of hp.

Haha this topic reminds me of constantly killing my red dead redemption horses all the time while in the gun fight. Pow! Right in the head. What horse walks into a gunfight? Annoying yet hilarious at the same time.

Woooooo Terraria on Wednesday!

The CAG can't stop me from paying 1200 for that...


I will also be picking up Terraria on Wednesday - 1200 spacebucks is a bargain for a game with that kind of replay value, assuming the port doesn't end up riddled with bugs. I'm not expecting that, but I'll probably consult a review or two prior to purchase.

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.


One game I have not seen mentioned yet is Far Cry 3. I know it is not the over the top style open world game like the others mention, but my God, I love this game. Tons of side quests/mission type things to do between hunting for mats, liberating strongholds, headhunting and hunting quests, sidequests, and then there is the story to. Tons of content and honestly, i have not put this much time into a game of this sort since Skyrim.

Which is the better DLC for Skyrim? Dawnguard or Dragonborn? Are they going to release more DLC?

If there's ever been an announcement about anything beyond Dragonborn, I missed it.

Of the two Dragonborn is certainly more ambitious but I really love the introduction of crossbows with Dawnguard.

EDIT - and yes, Mercenaries 2 is within my top 5 biggest disappointments this generation and possibly of all gaming-time.

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

Terraria is 2,49€ in steam right now (dunno how much in the US page, maybe $4?), it's a pity I don't use the PC to play :(

That said, I will get it on Xbox once it hits 600 or 400 msp.

Fuzzy memory since there were so many Dead Rising 2 releases...Case Zero and Case West are totally different, right? Just want to make sure it's not a DR2/DR2 Off The Record situation where it's almost the same thing with a different character.

Yes, that is right. Case Zero is a prequel to DR2, and Case West is an epilogue type story that appears to be setting up DR3 (hopefully).

Nice, thanks. Will probably get them both then. Plus my Kmart has a 10 dollar copy of Off the Record which is kind of tempting.

Dragonborn is the "better" DLC, but why not get both? They do plan on releasing more but it is unknown how many. Hopefully more than just one!

From Xbox Rewards' Twitter:

If you love Arcade games on Xbox LIVE, then you'll want to get in on our upcoming exclusive offer.

Sounds like next month's offer will be relating to spending ## MSRP on XBLA games. Kind of glad I waited on Phantom Breaker: Battlegrounds due to the contest here on CAG.

i don't understand the DR arcade games on sale. Could someone compare them to the first game for me? (only played the first, never got the second game). Are they like, set in an open world place like 1?? Because that setting is quite large...But i just can't see dead rising not open world? Are they worth it or just for completionists?

Sweet. Been wanting to play it for a while, but have never been much of a PC gamer. Having an XBLA version would be great. Thanks for the news.

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV), Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition (PS4).

Case Zero takes place in a small town and your free to go anywhere in that small town go to stores,casino,etc. In Case West you are in a semi large Factory were you can roam around as you like. In my opinion both games are great and for those prices even better. Also if your into Achievement hunting Case Zero has an easy 200/200 and Case West has like 3 achievements that might take you a bit longer.

Case Zero has you play in a town for the main character from Dead Rising 2, Chuck. Without giving too much away you have to "build" your way out while at the same time ve your daughter Zombrex in order to prevent her from going full on zombie. The town is a decent size and the game can last you any where from 3-8+ hours depending if you want to do everything.

Case West has you play with Frank and Chuck in a factory. I haven't bought it but from what I recall it does take place after DR2. The factory is a bit bigger if not the same size as the town in Case Zero. It also has CO-OP.

Both are well worth it. In your case buy CZ, then find DR2 for SUPER cheap and play it.


Question- DR2:OTR takes place in a different story line or after DR2. I've been meanign to buy the game for the longest, but with this damn backlog I haven't yet.

Case zero also allows you to import your character into DR2 up to level 5.

OTR is during the events of DR2 but from Franks perspective. I think the story is different enough to play through though. It has a new area also and a free roam mode that does not have the timer.

Basically, it's a "what-if" with Frank instead of Chuck with some minor additions (mainly Sandbox Mode and the challenges, the extra area) & such. Same time period as DR2, but plays out differently.

The Walking Dead for $10? Is there any difference between this and the retail version beyond it being digital? If not, I'm grabbing it. And $10 for Dragonborn is a definite for me; got 2300 points to burn lol.

Yep. Another thing to mention about Case Zero is that you can build a few levels on Chuck and import that into DR2, giving you a little head start. The city is open roam, maybe the size of a sub-section of the mall (for reference to DR1 for those who haven't played beyond).

Case West builds off one of the endings. Staying spoiler free, don't worry. Both DR games have "S" endings where if you meet certain story conditions, there is an extra bit of story/game (called "Overtime Mode"). In DR1, this is the general "canon" ending, and at first appeared to be for DR2 as well. But Case West build from the "A" ending, bringing together the protagonists from both games. They team up in Case West and the story builds towards making DR3, so right now that is considered the canon story.

DR2: Off the record is a "what if?" type of story. In it, Frank takes a different path post DR1 and ends up as the main playable character of DR2. Haven't done that one either, but I do know it's a completely different non-canon story. Basically made due to the fan reaction/backlash of wanting to continue playing as Frank in DR2. People didn't dislike Chuck, but Frank's popularity just soared (thus him being in things like MvC3) so they were surprised that the sequel had a new character.

If anyone is interested in co-op for DR2 or DR:CW, send me a message on XBL.

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

Bongfish on Twitter (@bongfish) is sending codes for their Crashed Ice Kinect XBLA game to new followers. I had to send them a message requesting one, so you may wish to do that as soon as you follow them. Not sure how long they'll do this, or how many codes they'll give away in total.

I bought it for 160 MSP a few weeks back and have had fun with it, so I'd definitely recommend it for free.
