Junpei, Black Tiger is included WITH the demo. It is supposed to be the free game that everyone gets.

Seriously? You must not pay attention to the deals ever then. Half of the sales are probably worse than this weeks. Sure it's nothing really great but there are tons of worse weeks.

Yeah, I mean there's nothing for me, but this is a weird week to hear a lot of complaints about. At least it's not Red Dead Redemption DLC for the 49th time.

Interesting that they'd announce they're going to release an all-in-one pack before they start releasing any of the games. It's honest I guess, but it also seems like it will cannibalize sales of the single games and 3-packs. It's like announcing plans for a GOTY version of a game before ever actually releasing the game.

True enough, but it will effectively be limited, according to the press: http://www.joystiq.c...on-february-19/

players on XBLA will have one credit to play with before restarting


It is listed under Game Pack 1 titles, after all... said pack costs 400 MSP, so I guess you'll need to buy the pack to unlock all extras tied to Black Tiger and remove the 1 credit thing. Anyway, it surely isn't the strangest thing written on that list... :)

I must admit, I held onto a tiny speck of hope for one of the bonus games to be Willow, but I guess licensed titles are out of question... :cry:

Seeing the two bonus games makes me happy. Eight shmups for $25...I need to still that picture of the "face of a pleased man".

Not familiar with Side Arms or Exed Exes though, so that could be interesting.

One thing I'm wondering though. Have there been any indication where they may do future game packs? If so, I'd love to get my hands on Forgotten Worlds.

So Skulls of the Shogun is really good, but it seems like it bombed. There's only 5500 people on the leaderboards and never any realtime multiplayer games available. The asynchronous mp is a crapshoot if the other player ever responds and even then it's inconvenient playing via Xbox. Any cags want to play some multiplayer or boost some of the mp cheevos? That epic win one seems unlikely to occur naturally.

With this Capcom Arcade Cabinet, I think of it more like a bundle discount with the option of a la carte pricing for those who don't want to drop $30 to buy the whole set. The value is obviously in the bundle...unless someone wants nothing more than to hack away at Ghosts and Goblins for the rest of their days, in which case the 4 bucks seems like the better play.

the remake of Yar's Revenge has literally NOTHING to do with the original's gameplay. they have the same name, that's about it.


Haven't played it, but seems like a missed opportunity to pay some kind of homage. Have a boss surrounded by a psychedelic force field, have him rev up and shoot a rainbow at you-bam, nod to the original.

An improved version of the delisted Yugioh game is coming to XBLA/PSN next week for $10. If you bought the last one, then you get this one free.

Hey all ... if you're in the Pacific NW of the USA, Fred Meyer is repeating their "save $10/$20/$30 off $50/$100/$150" coupon they had last Sunday, only it's just for the Electronics dept. This means the 12-month XBL subscription card currently on sale for $39.99 will be $31.99 when doubling up sale+coupon, and 1600 / 4000 MSP cards will be $15.99 / $39.99 with the (effectively) 20% off coupon. See my post over in the XBL subscription & points thread for more info.

Oh, and they also say in the ad flyer that all 360 games will be on sale for the next 2 days, and RE6 & MoH:WF are both 50% off as well. No idea if that makes them "good deals", but just something to check out if you're already there for subscription or point cards. :)

I highly enjoyed the demo; preview pics don't do the game justice by any stretch. The biggest problem I see is that it feels more like a 400-point game a-la Quarrel. 1200 is way too much to ask for a turn-based game like this.

Same goes for The Cave. 800 should be the limit unless it's close to worthy of a disc release.

Not concrete, but several of the D3 Publisher games also went down in price on PSN and are listed as "Price Drops". Similarly, the Alien Breed games are also on sale on PSN listed as "Sales". So you can probably make fair judgements that the same thing is happening here, i.e. the D3 Publisher content is a price drop and the Team17 content is a sale.

As for Atari, I think it's fair to assume that these are temporary sales, and that this content may even disappear fairly soon.

The tone is lighter and the writing is not as focused, but it is definitely worth playing if you liked the original AW. The action is a lot tighter too.

That is cool. Saw it on the dash thinking it was an xbla. Never bought an indie game from Xbox. I'll check out the demo.

To reinforce what others are saying, if you liked Alan wake but felt it kinda slow-you'll like American nightmare. If you haven't played Alan wake but have a mild interest, this is also a good sample.

I'll weigh in on Avatar Football though. I played it and thought it was severly lacking. The money you spend on it could be better spent picking up All Pro Football or an older Madden game if you have a jonesing to play football.

PUZZLE QUEST DLC - for those that bought this, its a bit glitched. if you quick launch the game the expansion pack might not show up (as can be seen from the pause menu). You have to quit to dashboard, then find it in your game library and launch again. I searched the net for answers forever before finding this out.

It also took me forever to learn that to START the dlc, you must travel to Gallia and pick up the starting quest, and you need to be lvl 20 at least. the starting quest is something about goblins, traveling to goblin mountain or somthing. that info should really be on a pop up or something when you start, dlc that loads with no indication on how to access it is one of my gaming pet peeves.
