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.


He's such a cocksucker. Hey, how 'bout you include the relevant info in the body of your post so people don't have to go digging through your shitty comments section to find out more about the mistake that you (or "your people") initially made. There was some other snotty little reply he sent to someone about it on Twitter, too. I can't find it now so he must have deleted it or something.

Anyone know the file size of NBA 2K13?


7.76gb


I'd just like to take this opportunity to once again pimp the Wikipedia page I'm a primary editor of:

List of Xbox 360 Games on Demand

File sizes are listed, as well as prices, release dates, and other pertinent info. I do my best to keep it updated and accurate.

Also, please go buy Avatar Football for Xbox Live Indie Games!

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.


Seen one sell for $1.

Where is SKyrim available for pennies?


Okay not for pennies, but for around $10-20 on ebay, yep. Oh, and it's an actual physical copy of the game.

What are you guys expecting it to be discounted to?

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.


Arcade ports have a weird tendency to keep their cheevos low hanging. After Burner Climax was an easy grind-free 200/200. Only really took three or four plays.

Of course, almost nobody will get all the medals to unlock the avatar award shirt.

Bitter much?

I'm thankful for the lousy Elder Scrolls week coming up, after having my gaming budget bombed by price-matching BB sales at Target yesterday. Crazy deals.

surely a game so critically acclaimed has to be worth a shot at a measly 6 bucks, no?

I think so, definitely. It's one of the few XBLA games I've actually finished, and the puzzles are thoughtful and rarely go beyond the point of becoming frustrating. I had a great time playing it.

Depends on what kind of gamer you are. Limbo is a single playthrough for the experience of playing it type of game. Where as something like Spelunky or N+ is more play it to master it and get better, get better high score type of games.

For me, I hate the artsy experience them once type that reviewers love and prefer the old style. So I wouldn't pay $1 for Limbo. But it certainly has it's fans.

Oh my Fuck Christ

It's not on the list anymore so that means it's gone, what the Fuck do you mean "go digging around"? If it's not on the Fuck list it's not on sale.

Well, it's a very short game. Beat it in a few hours. It's an atmosphereic art piece visually. The puzzles are good, not gamepad throwing hard but they may give you pause. There is no dialogue, no real story to speak of but has a great ability in pushing you forward.

Literally the only thing that bothered me is that it was too short, but alas it was sweet.

The shortness of Limbo is greatly appreciated if you're going for the Achievement where you have to beat it within a few lives.

I had a seriously memorable all-nighter one night around when this came out, before I had to work the next day, where I got that Achievement. Got to like the very end when then I lose my last life, and have to either go to bed at like 4am or get that achievement on my 2nd playthrough. I chose to do the 2nd playthrough, got to that end part, beat it under a few lives. Achievement unlocked, It felt amazing, it was for some reason a very memorable gaming session to me.

Then I got 3 hours of sleep and went to work. :)

There's an arcade pack that occasionally goes on sale for around $9-$10 on Newegg and Amazon a lot. It has Limbo, Trials, and Explosion Man I believe.

All good games, but maybe that'd be a better deal if you didn't have any already.

I played Limbo after purchasing it for the $2.49 on Steam. As someone who doesn't enjoy platformers very much, I greatly enjoyed it. I would pick up the 3-Pack with Trials HD, Splosion Man, and Limbo. Definitely worth the $10 for all three.

Definitely. Like some have said, there's not a lot of replay value (which, to be fair, is true of many XBLA games) but it's a great puzzle-platformer. As some have mentioned, the Trials/Limbo/Splosion Man 3 pack is a better deal since Splosion Man is also awesome.

I believe the 3 pack also comes with 120 in MS points which makes it a pretty great deal.

The game is extremely hard. It took me 601 attempts to beat the game for the first time (with shortcuts).

I think it is, only my opinion of course but I found it quite enjoyable. I actually like that it was shorter, I might have tired of it if it had been longer. As it is though, the length was just right for me.

the "does it have replay value" question is always funny around here considering most can't even find the time to play games in the back log for the first time, so do you really replay the games you already played?

I'm at around 400 deaths and I'm still working on unlocking the last shortcut. Getting a key to the Temple seems near impossible. Game has grown on me considerably though.

I was wondering this as well. Just a heads up, but you might want to make sure you play the Puzzle Quest Galactrix demo (if you haven't already) before you buy it. I was assuming it'll be just like the first 1 just in a sci-fi setting, but it wasn't even close.

Took me a hair over 200 tries for my first escape. The game is 10000000000 easier if you just play from the first level buying items like the climbing gloves, spike shoes and a ton of bombs+glue make the game much easier. There are lots of secrets(items/levels) to be found and some of those help too.

For me the game is growing on me because it's always different. I don't have to face that same spot that killed me. I can always hope for a better layout. Hell last night I played again and unlocked a new character that ran around with me helping in the first stage. So there is enough random things to accomplish and find that are making me consider the game now.

Not gonna be that guy and ask about "what the new deals are" since we already know from MN's blog that the DotW is a snoozer this week, but I was curious if anyone knew when the S&S app refreshes? Is it a monday morning thing or does it go on Tuesdays with the DotW? So far, I've gotten more deals from that app than I have the dotw's this year. =/

They're all probably price drops. Galactrix had a permanent price drop on PSN as well, and they are all published by the same company, so more than likely they're all price drops.

On the fence with N+. I won't play any time soon, and probably not before it goes on sale again outside the funky jurisdiction of the Sales and Special app, but that price is really tempting....

Also, one last call for feedback on Zombie Apocalypse online play: has anyone given it a shot?
