Wow, how often does a game get _relisted_ like Yar's Revenge?

EDIT: Also, I jumped on the ghostbusters jumpsuit. It's missing a nametag and just a bit different in some ways to the movie, but it does come with a non-functional proton pack.

Rarely. I've seen it happen a couple times. DOOM came back and I think maybe one or two other arcade games, but it's not something I would count on.

Is Hybrid still dead playerbase wise? It looks like an interesting game, but I know the game bombed at launch. Did it ever recover?

What a bizarre Atari sale. I'm a sucker for classic arcade games with achievements but 20 and 40% off? It would be a no-brainer for me for 50+% but these go on sale so rarely I might just grab them.

Also, why am I even considering Rocket Bowl? Am I ever going to play this thing?

Already had the Plague Lord PQ expansion, or I'd be buying that. I thought it would never go on sale. Adds a good bit of play to the game, totally worth it at full price and a steal at the sale price.

That review of the patched version of Amy sells it for me.

Thanks OP!

Someone posted a list of post-patch bulletpoints. I think I'm going to pick it up. Tired of shooters.

Thank you, I think I'll follow in your steps then. Some opinions on its GameFAQs board persuaded me that I will like the game (even though I was actively SEARCHING for positive viewpoints, so they naturally resonated more with me than the negative ones which I already knew), and that's a wrap... you get my fiver this time, Cuisset, but try to aim higher the next!

There are stilll few dedicated players and some groups that boost achievements from time to time, but overall you can count the online community as dead. Hell, i have hard time to get into a game 2-3 months after release...Now is even worse.

edit: More info about Capcom Arcade Cabinet:

Capcom Arcade Cabinet kicks off on February 19 on PlayStation Network and February 20 on Xbox Live Arcade. It appears Black Dragon may be released as a free download in Japan. 1943 and Avenger will cost 320 Microsoft Points or 400 yen each. Games will also be released in 800 Microsoft Point / 1,000 yen bundles.

It's a Capcom, so overpriced content. Hopefully there will be sales for these games later.

That's a hell of a price for 3-games bundles... hopefully, they'll at least reserve to them the same treatment received by Final Fight and Magic Sword in Final Fight: Double Impact (online co-op, rearranged soundtracks, artworks, etc.)... :roll:

That was released for SNES. These are games originally released in the arcades.

If these include some bonus stuff like the Final Fight: Double Impact (I'm not expecting AS much, but an achievement mentioned unlocking stuff in a gallery, so looks like there might be some stuff to unlock), I might bite. Though I think I'll wait for some of the packs to go on sale.

& if Japan gets Black Tiger/Dragon for free, I bet we'll get it for free as well as a "starter" game, to show the features of the hub out.

Rocketbowl is a D3 game.... so this is a price drop, not a sale, right?

^Good catch. I didn't see that it was a D3 game.

So yeah, it's probably a price drop, not a sale. The only unexplainable drop left is Amy.

As much as I have benefited from this series of threads, glad I could help ;)

I'm holding off on Amy for now, but gonna pull the trigger on Alien Breed 3 and UnderGarden DLC.

Debating PQ DLC... but I haven't played that game in years, and if it's a drop... no rush.

I enjoy seeing the original 1942 and 1943 on that Capcom list. Be nicer if they were in the same pack though. Funny how 1943 comes out on my birthday too.

Hunh, I don't tend to bitch when a sale sucks, but I think this might be the worst XBL weekly sale that I can remember. Usually there are 1-2 things that I at least consider purchasing. Rough week.

I seem to remember much much worse weeks than this within the past few months. There are tons of things on sale this week as opposed to some weeks where we get sales on DLC from a 3-4 year old game.

Haven't been here much lately! And because of that I forgot about picking up Shank 2. Ah well, that'll be marked down again before long. And with that I missed the DA2 DLC I considered buying also, but whatever. MM9 got a pass too, because I'd rather just wait it out and pay the extra two dollars than spend that money right now.

I think I'll finally be picking up American Nightmare! Oh yeah. Everything else in the DOTW, I've had for a while. The other assorted sales are interesting... I'm surprised to see the Matt Hazard XBLA game finally got a discount, and even at only 33% off I will be considering it. Does anyone know if Amy got the significant patch that had been discussed a while back? If not, that's definitely a no-buy. I gave the demo a shot at launch and that was the stinker of all stinkers.

Puzzle Quest DLC finally got a markdown????? These last few weeks have certainly been full of surprises.

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

Being the hoarder that I am, I feel compelled to buy every game that goes on sale. It's not like I plan to plan these things anyway right. ;)
So I have enough points to buy a couple of games, but that's not saying that I HAVE to. Any advice to persuade me to or dissuade me from buying these games would be very much appreciated.

Amy - Like someone else mentioned: The lack of the expected mass ridicule/condemnation of this game has me intrigued. Did it really become a decent game because of the patch?

Worms 2 - I have Revolution, but like I said I don't play these games so it doesn't matter if they're essentially the same game. ;)

Alien Breed - Time to date myself. I played this on my....Amiga. There was a bunch of hoopla when it was first released. I sucked at it because of my slow reflexes.

Alien Breed 2 - Can't buy the original without buying the sequel right?

Alien Breed 3 - Can't buy the sequel without buying the sequel to the sequel right?
