Hmm... Vanilla game is $18.57 on Amazon, plus $15 for the missing characters... $33.57 still seems like too much for Street Fighter X Tekken.

Yeah it was $10 through gamefly at multiple points. I ended up getting the special edition targeted at clearance for $18 months ago. Sadly havent seen it deep discounted since.

For anyone curious about he Atari/Test Drive situation: TDU1 is still down and probably will be forever as they announced the servers were going to be shut down. TDU2 is up and running, in fact they even had a small mandatory patch released today. Sadly the forums have been down forever and PC users can't buy tokens/car DLC thru their site. I'm not sure how long TDU2 will remain running but It still is at the moment.

Seeing all this Dragon Age DLC on sale reminds me I still need to play it from when I bought it before. I blame the DLC going on sale after I played the game originally.

Otherwise, in for DA2 DLC and Shank 2. Debating on Kingdom of Amular DLC as well. If I owned the game, I'd get it no question, but I don't presently have it yet. Being an EA game, I feel I could wait, but being a Curt Shilling game, I wonder if at some point the DLC will get delisted with the company being out of business.

the general consensus is that Amalur is best played ignoring everything not in the main quest line

So any thoughts on the The Exiled Prince DLC for DA2? Seems pretty weak compared to the other 2. I know it was only for the Signature version originally right?

Reckoning is a great game, it's a shame that Big Huge got all tangled up in the failure of Curt Schilling's MMO. The DLCs are some of the best quests in the game too. It seems like if they were going to be delisted, it would have happened already? I don't know though. Couldn't hurt to grab the DLC now if you're planning on playing it at some point.

It's akin to the Kasumi, Zaeed, or Javik DLC from Mass Effect. The mission content itself is not huge, but it does add a whole new party member that you can use for the rest of the game. So factor that in.

Disagree. I enjoyed both DLCs quite a bit, and they're well worth it for 400 points each.

It was on sale just a few weeks ago. I don't think you have a good reason to complain.


He said Mark of the Assassin (DA2 DLC). I believe you're thinking of Mark of the Ninja.

Another EA sale and they forgot to include Microbot again? ugh. Learn your lesson, kids: if you're on the fence about a sale, it may be the only chance you get and you'll be kicking yourself for the next few years about a missed mediocre game...

Picking up Shank 2 and putting it immediately behind Mark OT Ninja in my backlog, it just wouldn't seem right otherwise.


Exactly. This is only the 2nd time Amalur & DA 2 DLC has been on sale (first time for Mark of the Assassin from DA 2) so I would get them now as EA seems to have a no discount policy on DLC as the newer stuff never goes on sale.

I'd get it while its still on sale. There's no more new copies of the game to replenish the retailers when they sell out, & GS just raised the price of the game to $40 used.

It will be the Tales of Vesperia or western RPG's in terms of purchase price, at least at retail.

It was free w/Signature Edition but available separately on Day 1, which is where they got the idea of how to treat From Ashes.

And before its asked, From Ashes & Leviathan are absolutely necessary to enjoy Mass Effect 3 at its fullest. So glad I got Leviathan with the 1-day BF sale.

I was thinking of dumping my new unopened copy of KoA and buy it back later but it looks like I should just hold onto it since I got it for $10.50 during the BBY @Gamer sale.

This sale is very conviently happening 3-4 days after I finished DA:Origins and all of the DLC minus Stone Prisoner, and thats the one DLC not included in this sale!...Now the question is, are there any Microsoft Points deals at the moment that u guys are tracking?

I'm definitely in all for the DA2 DLC and Kingdoms of Amalur DLC (though I dont own it yet) but only have 820MSP atm.

All these years without any XBLA discount on Mega Man 9 and all they could give us was 20 percent off? What a letdown. Was anyone here waiting 4+ years for a 2 dollar discount? That's a big maybe for me.

Dragon Age DLC also gets a maybe. I've never even played the series but know well enough that EA likes to sit on its DLC pricing for as long as it can tolerate.

I would've bit on Space Invaders Extreme but I thought it was also on a compilation disc, for some reason. Whoops. Infinity Gene will have to do for me, I guess.

Already got everything on sale next week, score.

Just a reminder to those who are rewards members. We will get a new monthly reward offer on Friday so you may want to wait to purchase anything until we see what it is.

This is a great sale for me:
Deathspank 2
SSX and possibly the DLC
DA2 and DLC
Reckoning DLC

Need to download a couple demos to see what else I may need...

I enjoyed deathspank over shank but they're completely different games. Also, I liked DS1 over DS2

I haven't played enough of the Shank games to give them a fair shake, but I'll echo what seems to be the general sentiment around here for Deathspank: The first two games are equally good, with the third (not on sale) being something of a letdown. I'd give the second game the slightest edge if forced to choose, but if you place any value in its oddball story at all, know that the second picks up pretty much immediately after the first and may leave you scratching your head with a few referential jokes.

Oh, and if you want all the gamerscore you can get in Thongs of Virtue, don't rob Madame Primp. Just don't.

Haha, wow, I totally missed the new thread, which explains why it kept getting lower on my subs. D'oh.

Anyway, I'm getting Deathspank 2 since I missed it last time it was on sale and didn't want to start 3 until I played 2. Also, yay for the DA2 Dlc that hasn't been on sale to go on sale, I still need to finish that game.

In case anyone cares, I really enjoyed the dlc for KoA, so I'd recommend it at half off.

Edit: The OP looks really good, nice job Tyler!

So Skulls of the Shogun is coming out tomorrow. Don't know if this was discussed before, but is anyone else bummed that every version of it will have a discount at launch except Xbox? Kind of turning me off from a definite day one purchase.
