Already picked up NFS: MW Speed Pack today and I'll probably wait a few days for the other stuff. I've always wanted to play the Deathspank series so I will probably get those and I will pick up Mark of the Assassin DA2 DLC as well. Not a bad sale overall!

i have been checking reviews for shank 1 and 2, and for deathspank 1 and 2. I probably would get only 1 of these 4. Can those who have played provide recommendations? thanks!


If you enjoy Ron Gilbert's work (like Monkey Island) you will really get a kick out of DeathSpank. Very funny stuff.

Shank 2 will be mine. Been waiting on that one.

I guess i'm in the minority concerning the Deathspank series. I thought The Baconing was pretty solid. All three are pretty good games in my opinion.

Seeing the me3 dlc reminded me about my unopened copy of me2, which made me have to ask 1 question. Should i play me1 before me2?

Fight Night Champion for $10 has me interested. I've already played a part of the story, but I ended up trading it in at the time. I remember the boss fight being extremely cheap and unfair so that'll really test my decision.

This is sorta my dilemma as well. I have all 3 ME titles (I even have 2 copies of the first, 1 digital, 1 Plat) but have not played any of them. Every time I think I am going to start the first game, the prospect of having to sit through all 3 just to "keep it going" makes me shelf the whole idea and play something else.

Only if your playing it for the story. And, well with RPGs story usually isn't very important...

It's also the best game in the series.

I also liked the Deathspank games slightly more than the Shank games. I also liked Shank 1 more than Shank 2 for some reason.

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!


Only thing I did with the OP was convert it to my name so I can change the title of the thread. The rest of the thanks goes to the community who keeps up the OP. Bloomy said he's gonna do a little cleanup, but I'm free for a while so if I don't see he's done anything in the next little bit I'll work on it.

Thanks Shinn for getting those deals in the OP.

thats def. a huge feat in front of you, like saying ok im going to watch the whole Lost series now. But ME is great, if you like rpgs much youll get hooked, and it will fell less like keeping it going and more of excited to see whats next. ME2 was my favorite i think. good series, but youre in for a long haul for sure! i just broke my skyrim addiction having finished nearly all quests.

I added the XBLDB BBCode to the OP, moved the EA sales to the "open to all" section, put Dragon's Lair in the Kinect Central section, updated the loser deals for Scratch and Match and added next week's DOTW and Kinect Central sales (didn't add links for those, though).

Also sorry to hear you were laid off, shinn. Hope you find something else quickly.

Trust me, it won't feel like a chore once you're actually playing it. :D I'm currently working through the series again on PS3, this is my seventh playthrough of ME1, so... yeah.

It's hard to say in 2013 if someone should play Mass Effect 1. I enjoyed it at the time, but the sequels are so much better that I don't know if I still remember what the original game was really like. I would say that if you aren't the type who gets too caught up in getting achievements, then you could easily play all 3 with some breaks for other games over the course of a few months.

Just a heads up, but Newegg is also selling this game for 14.99 with free shipping if you were interested in a physical copy over the digital..

Cool, thanks for the heads up. I'll pick physical over digital any day.

Finally some decent sales. I'll definitely be getting Shank 1+2. I'd really like to get the Deathspank games, but I think I'll wait and hope they go down to 400msp soon(doubt that it'll happen). And I'm on the fence again with Warp.. As for next week I'll be getting Earthwork Jim and Zeno Clash UE (Finally! I was starting to think that the email was just a bunch of BS).

And I have to recommend Orcs Must Die! and Hydrophobia. If you played Dungeon Defenders and liked it, You should love Orcs! It's only downfall is no co-op. And I know Hydrophobia always gets a ton of hate, but i personally thought it was great. Definitely worth a try at only a measly 160msp.

Well finally a sale i can bite on.

I will definitely be purchasing all the DA2 DLC, even though I don't have the game yet. I'll consider the GoD for $10, but I'd prefer a physical copy.

I'll also buy the NFS Most Wanted DLC. I got the game for Christmas, but still haven't gotten around to playing it yet.

I'll probably pick up NFL Blitz also, after passing on it when it was on sale just a few weeks ago.

I definitely recommend Mass Effect 3 From Ashes, as it adds a lot story-wise to the game, as well as both Kingdoms of Amalur DLCs.

If Battlefield 3 premium were cheaper, I'd buy it, but at $40 I could just buy the premium edition of the game.

And for next week, I'll only be picking up Zeno Clash, even though I own it on Steam.

I realize this has been asked in the old thread before, but if I buy Madden 13 GoD, does it come with the online pass? I'm currently "renting" a copy from gamestop, and I've decided I'd like to own it, but I'm not keeping the used copy because I don't want to spend an extra $10. Also the GoD is the same price Madden seems to be everywhere right now.

My wife made the mistake of starting with ME2. She was upset in ME3 that a lot of stuff was chosen for her from ME1 and it felt less like her own game.

Yes digital copies of games should always come with online passes. The goal of the online pass is to get consumers to buy the game new so publishers can see part of the revenue from the sale. Since digital is basically "new" in the sense that publishers get revenue from it, it will have the online pass.

It would be outrageous if a digital game that uses an online pass didn't come with one.

It took me a while to realize this, but I have an aversion towards a lot of things sci-fi. I really don't know why, but if you take the exact same game and change the settings to sci-fi, most of the time it loses its appeal to me. For example, I love Civ and I don't care for Alpha Centauri. I enjoyed the first two DeathSpank games and I can't bring myself to even start the third one. I look forward to playing Dragon Age and KOA, but the thought of starting Mass Effect or Deus Ex makes me want to load up a puzzle game instead. Yeah I know it's weird, and I have no idea why I do this. I guess I can relate more to things that are based in reality (ie a sword instead of a photon rifle).

Being the silly person I am though, I buy everything including sci-fi stuff. So I keep convincing myself that at some point I will play all these titles I am hoarding. The tough part is putting the disc in the drive, starting the game, then coming back to it when I finish for the day or take a break.

So yeah, this will be a chore and not just because it's a time consuming task. ;)
