Don't you hate it when you spend some time intelligently explaining to someone that his opinion isn't fact, and then his response is "Yeah, but my opinion is fact."

Ebbtide and Kayne2000 both are quite wrong on this. It's already been explained, and yet they each came back and made the same poor argument all over again.


I am surprised this conversation continues everyday I check to see what is being said, or what deals are happening. Paul and others are correct and not just because Paul is awesome.

This is a discussion that no matter what answer is provided the minds will not sway, reminds me of politics. There does not need to be facts...

The S & S app game deals right now are better than the weekly deals have been! I never thought N+ was going to be on sale, in fact I'd pretty much forgotten about it. So I happily picked that up and Spelunky. I really liked the demo for Spelunky and was just waiting for a sale to grab it. All those Bing points I had sitting in my account got some really good use yesterday.

I remember the one time I finally got my hands on the fucking shotgun (totally by random) and the very next level was one of those fucking dark levels. I died almost instantly.


in level 2 when you get a haunted stage, put bomb on the grave marked ASH to get the shotgun. Knowing this, i still havent been able to open up the shortcut that requires the shotgun. :drool:

Good choices, wise sir.

Doritos Crash Course 2 confirmed to be free to play like the original.

It's also listed on the marketplace, so perhaps it's a sign it'll be coming within a few months.


I played this at PAX. From what I remember, it plays a lot like the original, there might be a few tweaks in the gameplay/controls, and the environments seemed a little more creative and more diverse aesthetically rather then the basic stadium type setting.

I am pretty disappointed that Dragonborn isn't going to go on sale. I would probably buy it for 25% off at this point. I hate how Major does this sometimes. I know it probably isn't his fault, but it seems like the third time I have gotten excited about buying something and had it removed.

The Japanese Model 2 Virtual On Cyber Troopers release can be downloaded with a Japanese account on a US Xbox and played with a US gamertag. Confirmed!

EDIT: That might be the fastest 100% I've ever had. Two playthroughs (total of 13 minutes of gameplay) netted all the achievements. Super disappointing. Guess I'll have to pop in Virtual On Force to get more of a fix since I haven't really gotten into it yet and I was looking to kill time till my Ni No Kuni Wizard Edition comes in the mail on the 21st.

Can anyone comment about the online play for zombie apocalypse? Is it easy to link up with friends? Is the gameplay pretty smooth, or is laggy/glitchy?

If I buy a game from the sales and specials app, will it show up in my history to download later if I ever delete it? I seem to recall this was an issue in the past...or maybe I'm just crazy.

Yes, it'll always be in your history, but it may show as "yet to be purchased" if you re-visit the Marketplace.

I think the issue everyone is still having with the Sales & Specials app is if you happen to browse to the specific full game you bought (Spelunky) anywhere else on the dashboard other than the Sales & Specials app it will say you haven't purchased it. I think its able to show in your download history but the full game download you purchased through the Sales & Specials app is a different hidden item than the full game you see everywhere else on the dashboard/marketplace and xbox.com. Correct me if I'm wrong on this though guys. That's just what I think I remember reading somewhere (maybe on here).

No corrections necessary, you've mastered the S&S+ app!

The Zombie Driver demo was is pretty good. There seems to be enough content to warrant the 400 msp sale price for those interested. However, I don't like the shoot-only-where-your-vehicle-is-pointed game mechanic, so I'm going to pass. Plus the look and feel seems similar to Renegade Ops, which is still in my backlog.

N+ is great. Had a lot of fun playing it with three other people locally. That's where it really shines.

There are patterns when it comes to Spelunky to make it easier. For starters, the exit is always at the bottom of the stage (except the UFO level) so I look for the best opportunity to use bombs to get to the lower levels and jump down (bombs also trigger those traps that shoot arrows;same with those skull heads) .

Don't try to kill every enemy (especially in the [very easy] ice levels and [very hard] temple levels) and don't try to save the girl every time; sometimes the bitch is a trap.

I have a [potentially dumb] question: When your XBox Live Gold subscription ends, is it best to renew right away or wait until there's a game on sale you want and do it then?

if you're getting gold only for the sales then wait. If you play multiplayer don't wait.

There's no harm in letting it lapse. But you may want to be vigilant about deals on Xbox Live Gold, year subscriptions can go as low as $35. And then when you get the subscription code, you can wait to apply it when you want.

Grabbed Spelunky. I don't know crap about the game but it was cheap and it has a high score on Metacritic. Can't go to wrong with it.

So, are we fairly certain Dragonborn won't be on sale this week? I may go ahead and jump on Spelunky for the kids, if we won't be seeing a Dragonborn sale. I had read somewhere that it was going to be discounted for Europe, though maybe that's changed since I saw it.

What I read said it would vary by region, but that Europe would definitely be getting it discounted. Again, that could have changed.

I'm really low on points, and with the last points I have, I was thinking of getting my kids Spelunky, but I'd maybe have to pass on it if Dragonborn was going to be discounted. I was just looking for info either way because I know it had been removed from Major Nelson's blog post.

Don't know for sure, but the fact that Major Nelson would go back and remove it from the list of sales suggest that it more than likely won't be.

EDIT: Major Nelson even mentioned the edit he made in the comments:

Indeed it has. That is why I added "Edited: List corrected on 2/12/12" Apparently the Skyrim add-ons were mistakenly included on the list I was given. Sorry about that.


It's going to make for an absoultely awful DotW, with Oblivion content only, and I guess Skyrim GoD as well. 2nd time this has happened in 4 weeks, it's actually kinda sad.

If Dragonborn isn't discounted, then yes it will be terrible. Skyrim sells for pennies practically, so why take up more space in storage with GoD? And Oblivion, it's only great for those who missed out...which begs me to ask, why would you miss out on that game?!?!

Skyrim is only a 4GB download so if the price is right, it may not be bad to get that version. The download codes stay pretty steady at $30 on EBay/Amazon.

7.76gb
