The best is Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, which isn't on sale because it just released last week. As for the three that are on sale, Captain Scarlet is the first pack (not sure if it matters what order you play them in) but I've heard Torgue's Campaign of Carnage is the best of the three. And the Mechromancer Pack and the Psycho Pack are each a playable character with entirely new skill trees and play styles. The Psycho pack is the most different because he focuses on damaging yourself to activate skills and he has some focus on melee.

The creature slaughter dome is just an arena to fight monsters in to get some loot and experience, and the Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack is the level cap increase and third play through option.

 

Alright, great.  Thanks for the info.  I played this game obsessively with a good group of guys but unfortunately they ended up in military training.  Had a blast with the Zero character and with all of the variety of games I play, I still have yet to finish BL2 (I know, insane).  So I'd like to jump back into it.

 

I'm just crossing my fingers we'll see very similar titles like the last sale.  Totally regret some of the purchases I missed out on.

 

Crysis for $5 seems like a steal.  Anyone else agree?  Thing is this all adds up, especially considering the games around the corner and the fact I'd like to reserve my remaining points for upcoming DLC's for GTA5, Battlefield 4, etc.

Is Borderlands 2 worth it if I would only play it single player?

Tomb Raider does have mulitplayer as well, but I heard It's just OK.

Currently sitting at second best rated game for the 360 so far this year (behind Bioshock Infinite) at a 86 metacritic.

$15 for 10ish hours isn't bad. Hopefully It's $10 lol.

Though if you really want to be cheap you can always redbox it, play it non-stop and beat it in 1-2 days.

Yep! The only bad part is you're going to have some trouble with the end game raid bosses :p besides that the campaign is still fun even if played solo.

Yes you really don't lose anything playing solo. You might want to consider Mechromancer pack though. As somebody who played MMO's solo all the time, think of Mech as the pet class, making it easier to solo.

Wow, I had to double check that TR really ended up with an 86 overall.  That to me is just criminal for a game that good.  Maybe not being a big TR fan helped me quite a bit though.  I know many of the previous games are very puzzle heavy, but this is one is more of a story driven action game with amazing graphics, animations, and really well balanced and satisfying gameplay.

Ok good to know, thanks. I'll probably just wait to see what tonights deals are and go from there. $10 seems too good to pass up but I really want XCom, Tomb Raider and ME3 Omega.  Its crazy how fast the microsoft points disappear.

Just want to note that as long as the host has this DLC, you can play it. It was an on-disc preorder bonus.

It's good, but it has a few issues. It becomes too much of a TPS during the last third or so of the game, and it needed more tombs/puzzles,  not even as much as the old games, just more. Plus, multiplayer as it is was a waste of development time and resources, made even worse by all the DLC being map packs for it instead of the content everyone enjoyed.

 

I'd say mid to low 80s is a good score for it.

Also, note to anyone who decides to get the Psycho Pack for Borderlands 2, before you play you need to go on YouTube and watch "A Meat Bicycle for Two" it's a short video showing how he got on the train the other Vault Hunters were on, it also explains a bit of his story.

Just to say in Spain we have Perfect Dark Zero for 1200mp, aren't we awesome? To balance things AC3 and FC3 are at 800mp.

Thanks for the heads up! I've been waiting for this to drop under $20, and I never think to check Amazon Warehouse. I just bought a copy, and there are 8 left

I'm actually thinking about selling my physical copies of most of these games and rebuying them with those cheap MSP i got a while back.  im in a tight situation for money this week and i'd rather just use some of those MSP rather than just having it sit there forever.  i still got like 22k msp and i dont see myself using them that fast anytime soon.  I hope i don't regret doing this, but I really need some real cash right now rather than internet xbox currency.

I just traded in a ton of my games to GameStop (for credit, not cash), but I was in a similar situation, trying to figure out how to properly make my dollar stretch. You know that you can buy gas cards and some other gift cards at GameStop, right?

It's not that bad. Some people just suck at fighting games. Can easily finish the game without paying real money. If you like gladiator fights, you'll like the game. It does need private matches though.

If it's any consolation or encouragement, I too walk a pretty tight rope when it comes to personal finances a majority of the time and I would say that if you think you can make even a decent amount of money selling physical copies of games you can buy dirt cheap with digital space bucks, you are wise to give that plan a shot.  Plus, I think between now and the end of the life of the xbox 360 (however many years down the road that is), sales like this will become slightly more common.

Can't wait to see what goes up this evening! Less than two hours until they start popping up :D

 

I wouldn't mind having them finish putting up the current DotW deals and expiring the old ones before they keeping moving forward with the Daily Deals.

A little late to the discussion but I loved AC3. 2nd best game in the series IMO. I loved it from start to finish and I wish there was more story DLC. I honestly don't get the hate.

Yes but much like when you wanted an arcade game sale rather than a Games on Demand sale, you are in the incredible minority here. Nothing wrong with that but it's just obvious you have a different opinion from like 99% of people LoL

I picked up BL2 with MS points that I had piled up from Black Friday for half off at Target....still have 4k points left.... what DLC is worth getting?


Mr.Torgue's Campaign of Carnage is really good in my opinion, and the Captain Scarlett DLC is pretty fun. I have the season pass but I have not yet played Hamerlocks Big Game Hunt or Tiny Tina's Assualt on Dragon Keep.

WELL worth the $15... i'd have probably paid $20. If it's $15 on this sale, I'm rebuying just to mess around on it again. It was good.
