So I picked up Space Invaders Extreme and love it. However, I also got the DLC through the Sales APP and I can't get it to show up in game. I've deleted and redownloaded the DLC through the APP, but it still won't show.

Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

I know it was mentioned in this thread, so I'm just putting this here, sorry if someone has already said it, but for anyone looking for Riddick on 360, check Gamestop. It was $6.99 when I was there earlier used, better than $15 on the marketplace

8 dollars... Gamestop... 8 dollars... Gamestop. The problem is that if I walked into gamestop to save eight dollars, I just know I would have to treat myself to at least eight dollars worth of food and/or alcohol to dull the pain. Which makes it a wash for me and gas makes it a bad deal. But I'm liking the gohastings coupon going on right now so I might just talk myself into three other games.

Yeah after the huge holiday sales there hasn't been too much excitement round these parts. Hopefully that changes up in the next few weeks.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

And if anyone cares, xbldb.com picked up a probably price drop on SSX, it's 1600 MSP now. That is, if you didn't get it free a few days ago.

Oooh is it that time of the week again when we can get excited for the joys of a fresh sale unknown tomorrow? Not that this week was a bust, Space Invaders is my buy of the month. Already had IG, which I cannot recommend enough to people. I almost pulled the trigger a couple times on Extreme, so happy it finally saw a discount!

Here's hoping we see some more new discounts tomorrow. I would love it if it was for content I want, but I'm always happy to see something discounted for the first time regardless of my preference as there is surely someone waiting to buy.

I keep holding out hope that the 2nd and 3rd DeathSpank games will finally see a price drop. Loved the first one, but 1200 points is a bit high. But I'll still keep checking every Tuesday, like I always do, for a 400 or 600 point price drop.

I was all ready to throw out a few excellent XBLIG Space Invader clones as alternatives to the genuine articles on sale in the sales app, but after seeing how different a game Space Invaders Infinity Gene is, I don't know if I should even bother... And it weren't for the baneful S&S app, I'd probably buy Infinity Gene (pending trial of course).

Wow, this thread really slowed down. Good thing I'm here to post on Monday and ask what tomorrow's deals will be!


Slow postings, low attention, this is a perfect time for ... text wall! Without any indication at this time what will be offered for deals tomorrow, being left in the dark, it's a scary time. Let me illuminate myself from below my face, and give you some of my awful (and typically inaccurate) predictions for the deals we will see come Tuesday. You'll vomit with excitement, you'll puke with pleasure, you'll $#|+ with fear. Get excited, get disgusted, get pissed off. So, this past week was a Rockstar deal for Red Dead Redemption items, previous weeks involved Square-Enix, EA, and 2k; I forecast something from Zenimax/Bethesda, a large front of Oblivion DLC like Shivering Isles and Knights of Nine moving in, but not the houses and my little pony accessories. With the publisher factor, one would feel like the newer Rage DLC would be nice (at least for me), but at best maybe something from the Ultimate or Game of the Year editions of their Fallout games on the side. However, it has been a while since Risk: Factions came along to taunt us ^^.



So now the obvious question, which space invaders game should I pick? Infinity is more recent right? Is either one "more fun"?


Fortunately this past week of discounts was rescued by the Sales & Specials + app. I decided to pick up the Space Invaders content I did not have. While both XBLA titles were ports from their original formats, with Extreme coming from the DS and Infinity from iOS. Both originally had a viewable aspect that had more vertical space, but the games are still enjoyable on a monitor/TV.

I feel Space Invaders Extreme was quite fun played alongside my friends. We chose the more difficult stage route when possible, and somehow didn't get tired of hearing "super jackpot," blue laser is totally tits, and hate it when a UFO gets away from us. The game offers potential randomness in crazy remixing of classic Space Invaders and multiple mini bonus sections/segments. Also of note are the background visualizations by Jeff Minter. This game is probably the most I've ever complimented a Backbone Entertainment port, which isn't hard because I like it.

Space Invaders: Infinity Gene is more akin to a vertical scrolling shooting game (not quite danmaku bullet hell, but more the classic kind). I feel this game loses a bit due to the loss of touchscreen controls (the game was designed with that in mind), when originally I can manage to clear one wave from one side and with the speed of my finger across the screen, I can clear the other wave on the other; while the XBLA edition, the analog stick cannot move my ship across horizontally as fast, but in theory I gain precision from a control method I've worked on for years through a control pad. The game is themed around evolution, and it is reflected in the game starting off with classic single screen Space Invaders, and start to add to the game by allowing vertical movement of your ship, backgrounds going vector graphics, and adding colors as one goes along. The visuals a minimalistic but still engaging. As for the music, there was a spinoff rhythm game on iOS called Groove Coaster by the same team which share a similar visual style, functionally enjoyable by me as well.

I like them both, there's no losing if you choose one or the other. I went with both. However, Space Invaders: Infinity Gene had been offered on discount before, whereas I think this is the first time Space Invaders Extreme had been offered at a discount.



If anyone is playing Bulletwitch for achievements, go and hug a cactus. It's alot less painful and it's time better spent. Though I know some people agree with that action at just the mere thought of possibly playing it as well.


When I fondle my cactus, I prefer to staple a copy of Bulletwitch to it beforehand. I'll let that image sink in first. Okay. Maybe I should have prefaced my prior comments on the discounted Space Invaders titles with how I know I have an odd taste for videogames. I honestly had fun with Bulletwitch, but that's how I am wired, maybe I just like "crap" games. Obviously I am a minority view for games, and when I offer my opinion, I'm just representing my own personal odd tastes. So, take what I had said about the Space Invaders games with a grain of salt.



Soo Scott Pilgrim is an unfinished Game again :( and this Time the dlc has a Price that isn't a no brainer...will have to wait then...


I've been pining for the online multiplayer DLC when it was announced and desiring it when the game was released with no online play. I double dipped for the game and its first DLC on both platforms, on release, minimal discount (the competing platform had an offer for pre-purchase). Given that I have played the game quite a lot, more than most on Xbox Live when the game was released (probably others more now), this upcoming DLC I will not be a CAG about and purchase outright (twice!). Yes, the Paul Robertson pixel art and Anamanaguchi chiptunes really appeal to me, totally to my taste ^^.



very common problem around here, if they ever find the time to actually play the game they might not even like it enough to play the dlc

so much for "saving" money


Ever working on my backlog, and I finally will get to the Dead Space 2 Severed DLC which was offered at a discount practically about 1 year ago from today. I had purchased the DLC before I had the game, only when the price was Best Buy bargain bin ($10 or $15, I do not recall) did I get the game well after. I only got to this game just now because of recent EA server shutdowns (not this particular game, just the concept of server shutdowns from a company notorious for it) and its sequel due out for release in the near future (which is not on my radar, until plenty cheap, then I'd start considering). Just going through my Xbox hard drive, I still have a few titles' DLC which I purchased when they were on discount but I don't even have the disc yet (Splinter Cell: Conviction, Sleeping Dogs). I just see savings on videogame content as a means to use the same budget for more videogames, just trying to optimize my limited resources for maximum videogame playing.



My two cents: if you have to convince yourself to buy it, you probably shouldn't buy it. Though there's something to be said about practicing what you preach, and I'm falling out of practice...


I try to do that as much as my willpower allows me. I've resisted Raskulls, Ilomilo, and World of Keflings despite all the reduced price offers they had. I actually regret passing up Unbound Saga for 160MSP, because that one day I happen to have some semblance of standards, and I would go back and hit myself across the head for passing on it for that low a price. However, regret works the other way around too, because I have purchased titles on discount and ended out not enjoying them (A Kingdom for Keflings, Castle Crashers, Deathspank 1-3, Gatling Gears, Toy Soldiers) as much, but comforted by the fact I didn't pay much for them. [Again, my odd tastes, I probably don't like stuff you guys like and like stuff people dislike. (and I actually purchased The Baconing because I already had the first two when they offered them on discount, may as well complete the series =P)] The call of discounts is strong, and they compel me ...



I need to know what will be on discount tomorrow, because the urge is great, even with a backlog ^^. Take a shot! At least this Wednesday, maybe I'll read about your thoughts on the XBLA Skulls of the Shogun because I'm too lazy to play the demo, and working on my backlog ^^. Or tell me if Special Forces: Team X from the week after is worth looking at.


EDIT: ooga, you can always ignore me ^^ ... madman typing on a forum ... or I can narrate to you, I don't sound like Morgan Freeman, but some have said I sound like generic movie trailer guy, just imagine "in a world, where anything is possible ... this winter, Deal of the Week"

Otherwise you may have to contact 1-800-4-MY-XBOX, and have them comp you the points so you can buy the DLC from your home country. FYI, you're hitting those "unique country" issues I explained at the bottom of the OP, and the DLC you've downloaded is assigned to a country not matching the XBLA game you got.

I'm wanting Harmonix to do more marathon packs for Dance Central but have a feeling we won't see any. I want the newer track packs from DC2/3 since I started playing DC3 daily to burn calories. What a workout! It was my goal to work out on Kinect and the Xbox Rewards gave me that extra little incentive. I'm 7 days in and play 1-2 hrs a day. I did run my 360 overnight that first night to get an achievement and run up the hours for Xbox Rewards to hit 20 hours. I also have both Kinect Sports games and Your Shape Fitness Evolved if I want to mix it up. I want to get the Nike+ Kinect game once it's cheap.

I'm in your exact same situation: I got a Kinect on 21st and bought all Dance Central games plus Your Shape 2012 from The Hut, since it was the complete version with all DLCs. Glad to hear that workout's paying off well for you, since I'm planning to start mine soon :)

I don't think we'll see another DC sale at least before next week: this month's purchases go towards the 200 points rebate from Xbox Rewards, so maybe they want us to spend full prices on them... but there were also discounted titles valid for past promotions, so who knows ;)

Furthermore, can you really leave Xbox running to rack up hours (and eventually achievements) with Kinect titles? I guessed that, once you withdraw from the sensor's field of view, your profile was disconnected from the game and thus from hours tracking...

I highly recommend Shank 2. Levels are more varied this time and the game feels more polished than first one. Survival mode is really fun playing with friend.
Short game, but you get enough content for 400 points.
