Both Sam & Max seasons were 1600 MSP, which is still lower than the PC price years after release.

Puzzle Quest Galactrix was also 1600 msp.

You guys are weird with this inverted Y axis junk. The game is perfectly playable. I recommend you try it before you write it off, or you'd be missing out on a fantastic game. It seems everytime BG&E is brought up, the conversation devolves into complaining about the control scheme.


This.

I almost didn't pick it up (even at 200mp) because everyone here was saying not to because of how the controls make it 'unplayable'. After watching some gameplay I decided to give it a chance. From the moment I started playing I never once had any problems with the controls. BG&E is a great game and I definitely recommend it.

I never said the controls were unplayable. But having the choice of inverting Y as not an option, I am choosing not to play due to that. Sure its playable for you. Not for me. You try playing any game you choose with Y inverted axis and see how I feel.

You're not flying a plane, right? Do you look down to see the sky irl? The only time inverting makes any sense is flying a plane, when you actually pull the stick back to go higher and vice versa.


Here's why you are wrong and inverted IS normal. Try not to discredit it too much because it's IGN AU, their points are still valid.

Puzzle Quest Galactrix was also 1600 msp.

That's right. Forgot about those, as well. Galactrix completely bombed due to the arrogance of D3. The Sam & Max stuff sort of doesn't count to me because they're bundles of five or six episodes/games.

So most of the few 1600 point games bombed with really only two exceptions (Penny Arcade Adventures Episode 1 and Minecraft). Eight games out of about 500 is still very small. It occasionally happened and most of them weren't worth it to the audience.

Except for the fact that games aren't real life and you're just moving a cursor, which is the case, and you don't invert your mouse controls do you?

Inverted is for piloting.

Was the first Zeno Clash ever one sale?

Remember looking forward to that when it went on sale but could never bring myself to pay full price on it. Still have it downloaded though.

Demoed Sine Mora today. Better than expected, as I prefer top down while this is a side scroller. The 3D probably makes my opinion bias though. Heard its incredibly hard, but it didn't seem too bad. Its more manageable than most of the bullet hell games I've played. I'm sure it gets harder though.

The only thing "wrong" about normal or inverted are the people who think one method is correct and one is incorrect. They're both correct otherwise both wouldn't exist.

Plants vs Zombies - I'm not really into tower defense games, but this one was actually pretty fun....I bought the Android version for $1 to take on an upcoming trip.

From Dust - For a few less points I would have added this one to my backlog. The graphics, atmosphere, and game concept are really cool, but I didn't feel super comfortable with the controls, and I didn't find the experience any more enticing than the other games I own and have yet to play. I debated on this one quite a bit though.


P.S.....

Phantom Breaker - The combat moves seem deep and varied with lots of satisfying action, so this is on my buy-once-it's-on-sale list...even though the retro-sprites and cup tunes motif are not my cup of tea.

The Android version of PvZ has so little content in it compared to the console/PC versions. You don't get any of the bonus content beyond the campaign.

they added the key rookies from last season (it was released 2 seasons ago), and a few from this season (but they missed alot of big people this season, only added maybe a half a dozen rooks from this year). but a lot of people they missed initially are now in like lin and james harden, there's some obvious mistakes, but it has been slightly updated every 10 months or so.

Personally I also think it looks really nice. Heck, I'd even go so far as to say it and Scott Pilgrim look better than a lot of AAA games. But I'm a fan of retro graphics, so of course I'm very biased;) on a side note, does PB have online?


Yeah, it's got 1-4 players for arcade and vs. in local and online (not mixed). It's a bit tricky to get more than one other player in via matchmaking, but I managed to get all the online achievements without fuss.
As someone who likes fighting games, but isn't very competitive at them, this is is the best combo of button mashing viability and rhythmic depth I've seen in a brawler.


I saw your other comment, and I'd totally be down for some Rock of Ages.

I almost wish they hadn't updated it. I used to love being Orlando so I could be Dwight and Shaq to block the shit outta people.

Disappointing that Blitz wont have RG3 and Luck but I'll be grabbing it anyway. Wonder why they would update NBA jam and not Blitz... I guess NBA Jam still has an active enough online community to justify the costs. Boo.

When people ask why I play FPS games inverted, I like to explain it like like this - imagine your head is the joystick and place your hand on top of your head. What happens when you press forward? You look down! And when you pull back your head, you look up! This framework has always just been in my mind so it's hard to get used to anything else.

That sounds right.

Regardless what does it matter. We dont get mad at when people are left handed versus the more common right handedness. Everyone is different.

ON topic about Xbox. Blood Dragon comes out this week right? :)

If so that will be my first arcade purchased for 2013.

I am done as well. I was going to wait until tomorrow and pickup X-men, but decided against it just in case something in their database goes haywire and it doesn't count it since it was bought on the last day. So I got my three 400 MSPs games to put me at 3320 MSPs. I picked up:

Polar Panic
Arkadian Warriors (Strictly for the cheevos. I am counting on you here Cleaner7 ;) )
Small Arms

And as a bonus, all of them are teeny tiny games that hardly up take any space on my HD. :)


You got it! We can start it since I 100% Poker Night 2 earlier and am on the last chapter for BBT campaign solo insane. I'm hoping to finish that in the morning then it's just a matter of playing lots of arena to gather gems. I have 44 triangle heads left x 25 gems per head so 1100 needed to finish that. Co-op campaign insane can wait.

The Portal 2 theme on PN2 is cool. I thought I'd heard all the dialogue but laughed hard at 2 conversations yesterday. Most of it is repeats though.
