Thank you guys for all the outpouring of love for Dust:AET, hope you enjoy the game :)


Whoa, didn't ever realize that Noogy was on CAG... guess it's never too late to say thank you for such a wonderfully crafted game and, of course, for Jazz Jackrabbit! :applause:

And let's spread some love for ilomilo, as it's one of the best puzzle games on XBLA to date: I've spent countless hours with my missus browsing its lovely packed levels while racking our brains to solve them. I hope nobody has spoken too much about it because it has been on sale many times, thus everyone should already have downloaded his copy, but if you didn't then I highly recommend it!

I only snatched Quarrel from the current sale, since I own every other game that interested me... here's hoping that we'll see some more 400 points-and-up XBLA titles discounted before the end of the month (I'm looking especially at you two, Double Dragon Neon and Black Knight Sword), otherwise I may not be able to complete my punchcard...

Just a question: am I the only one trying to get the 20 hour punchcard without simply leaving my console on?

Here's another who plans to play for the 20 hours. Hope to finish BioShock Infinite this weekend, then focus primarily on the XBLA backlog the rest of the month.

If I leave Ikaruga on pause while I'm at work, I should be able to get my 20 hours, plus get an extra continue for every hour, correct?


Yes

As for me, time to finally splurge on some tables for Pinball FX. Also, I know that Hydrophobia isn't amazing, but I picked it up on Steam and was disappointed with the replaced VO. I sort of want to get the original VO on the XBLA version.


And we hope you make more stuff ;)

I find it annoying that my inability to carry a tune is preventing me from unlocking the "easy" musician achievement. Love the game though. Pick up the dlc if you want more.

Wow, I didn't know about that connection at all. Cool! And I'll second the props for Noogy. Hey, you're a cool dude.

CGT has a pretty nice deal on 4000 MSP right now, so perhaps against my better judgment, I bit. Guardian Heroes, Trials Evo, and hell, even Puzzle Arcade will now be mine. I was gonna bite on Pool Nation too but was inspired to check my download history, and sure enough, there it was. So thanks to all of you that have consistently reminded others to look before they double-dip (or in at least one case, triple-dip).

1000 more points and I should be good to go for this 800 back promo...

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

This is.....really cool. I loved Dust!

I recall the original voice work was pretty bad on Hydrophobia as well. I haven't heard any of the redone stuff.

I was under this impression as well.

It's a mindless hack and slash with 4 player co-op. Graphics and animations are good. I'm willing to bet its been 600 points before though. Most people already have it, game has been out forever.

Absolutely this. I loved Dust and recommend it to everyone. I'm sure anything else you make will be awesome Noogy. So, get on that, and you can shut up and take my money.

Also, I'm pretty sure you being here makes Dust even cooler than it was. Somehow.

Give it some time. It only showed up now that I left my 360 on for 5 hours in Darkstalkers Resurrection's training mode when I went out of town to do stuff on April 1st. Plus it states it'll take 3-5 days in order to appear. I'm just glad it shows the hours since that can be the hardest to keep track of.

Not too big on Poker, but that Telltale Games' Poker Night 2 looks alright. Plus each system has its own special unlockables. XBLA gets avatar awards (like a Portal test chamber & a Bloodwing from Borderlands 2), PSN gets XMB themes, and PC version gets TF2 hats. All versions also include Borderlands 2 bonuses as well.


Thank you for reiterating that it takes 3-5 days. When people say they just bought it and then complain that it's not showing up on the punchcard I shake my head.

Ooh and thanks from the Poker Night 2 details. I didn't know about the exclusive unlockables! Looks like I'll get it on XBLA and probably on Steam when it's inevitably super cheap. Not to be a total fangirl but I always prefer getting avatar items on XBL versus themes on PSN. It works for the respective platforms yet I prefer avatar awards.


I forgot I don't own Pool Nation from the MGS sale. Last time it was on sale I was considering it since I do like pool, but I heard it gets rather difficult quickly. I already own Bankshot Billiards and stopped playing that long ago. Just like poker, how many versions does one person need? (Not enough apparently since I'm going to get PN2 eventually haha.) If I do get it it will count as one of my four punchcard games. Hmm... I wish it was a permanent drop so I could wait until the end of the month to decide like I am with Terraria and Monaco.

And good job whoever did the "Check your previous S&S+ app purchases" note in the OP. That's a good tip! Thank you again to each person who contributes!

I'm even more of a PS3 fan, and I still prefer avatar items. To me, I find a theme I like and stick with it (right now it's the Mexican Skulls one from PS+), but avatar items are fun to collect and swap out. Idk, just feels more like something I earned than themes do. Not that I know if I'll pick up the poker game, so this is probably irrelevant I suppose, but I wish more games had avatar unlocks (as stupid as they are);)
There's not a lot of logic to it. It's kind of like on a boat with "Women and children first."
I mean, why should they...

We should make a simple list of all eligible arcade games for the punchcard promotion

Collect Games, Get Gold
- Buy 4 XBLA games worth 400 or more. Win 1 month XBL
- Eligible games:


Spend More, Get More

- Eligible games:


Eat. Sleep. Game.
- Play 4 or more games for 5 hours each with 20 hours total. Win an avatar item
- Eligible games:

What do you think? We should also include it in the OP so people won't have to keep asking for which games are eligible

I think it's an excellent idea, but a better place for it would be the Xbox Rewards thread. People have done a great job keeping the promo details and eligible games updated in that thread on similar promos in the past.

Except that those are wrong. You don't need to buy four arcade games that are at least 800 points, as you just need to spend 3200 points and you get a punch on the Punchcard site for every 800 points that are spent. You also don't need to play four arcade games for five hours each to get the time punches, as you just get a punch for every five hours played amongst arcade games.

Agreed, it probably belongs in the Xbox Rewards thread. Also, there's got to be over 500 XBLA games that are 400 MSP or more, so that's gonna be a hell of a list.

So weird that Quarrel doesn't have local multiplayer.


So fucking weird! Went to play with a buddy and we were both shocked that it wasn't available. Especially since you really can't cheat off your local opponent's words since time is also a factor.

If Microsoft weren't so stupid about it, the old Destination Arcade app could've been perfect for that.

Are you implying you only need to spend 3200 total on arcade games? I assumed they had to be 800 or more to get a single punch, and 4 punches were required to win the 800 point reward.

3200 total. It just keeps track of your spending in 800 point chunks.

It's a great, great game. One of my 10 favorite games overall in 2012. Grab it at that price, especially with the rebate potential this month.
