Limbo worth $6.00?


I want to share my opinions as well.
Limbo's controls were weird to me. Things felt floaty and sluggish to me. It was never a problem though and I was able to adapt.
Where Limbo really shined for me was in the story. The title screen and first part of the game gives off a definite David Lynch feel and it doesn't dissappoint in the end. Very similar themes as his most recent films. Like a macabre version of Ambrose Bierce's “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.”
For this reason, I say Limbo would almost be worth the price just to watch someone play through. Actually, I just remembered I had a friend who doesn't play games watch a video of a perfect playthrough for the story alone. If you're interested in the above themes, Limbo is worth checking out.

After playing the trials I decided to pick up almost everything I didn't already have (except for zombie wranglers). I bought Zombie Driver HD after being pleasantly surprised by the demo, as well as the Zombie Apocalypse 2 DLC and All Zombies Must Die. Still debating on getting N+ or not.

So did they remove Dragonborn from the new deal of the week?


Major Nelson retracted it from his blog. Take what you will from that. I think it will be on sale, because it makes me :bouncy:.

So I stockpiled on all the zombie games and DLC I didn't already have - NEVER DIE ALONE's Pure Pwnage, Zombie Driver, All Zombies Must Die, and even Zombie Wranglers. I haven't even touched NEVER DIE ALONE despite having it for several months, but I played a little bit of the rest and have to say they'd all be much better games if the devs had bothered fine-tuning controls. They are all acceptable for the price points given, but if I had to pick just one I'd probably go with Zombie Driver. Plenty of zombies to slaughter + 400 GS = good stuff.

Edited out unnecessary snark.

I didn't even know there was a game called Non-Disclosure Agreement, much less DLC for it.

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.

That's why I threw them into the "unannounced price drops" section, instead of a confirmed sale, or as confirmed by MS. We already knew about Atari & some of the miscellaneous items (since they're shown on the 360's dashboard as "price drops"), but the D3 publisher titles were conjecture based on PSN's pricing.

In other news, my F5 key is broken, due to refreshing the Skyrim addons page tonight ... :lol:

the deal of week prices are up.
In Australia Oblivion is $9.99, probably something similar in America.
Australia gets ripped off with skyrim price.
Skyrim is $49.99, was $109.95 (Cant believe that prices are that high.)
Americas price is $39.99 was $59.99. (still high)
And dlc still same price

So it's true, no DLC discounts for Skyram then... can we expect something from the S&S+ app, or do its offers stay the same for 2 weeks? Is there a rule for this? I can't remember...

I know everyone is talking about whether or not Dragonborn will be on sale (I too, hope it will be $10), but for anyone interested in Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, the US demo is out. Masked Man vs Minato and the boss fight of the Nine-Tails vs Third Hokage. 2 GBs for a demo, but heard the graphics have improved.

Destructoid bashed it pretty badly, and I usually find their reviews spot-on... nevertheless, I gave the demo a spin, and Brad was right: the game plays like a sloooooooow version of Lemmings, in which you have to place objects on the main character's way in order for her to overcome obstacles and enemies.
Problem is, objects are completely random and you're often left placing them furiously on screen waiting for the correct one to show up or, worse, having to plan a completely different route for Sofi because you didn't get the objects you want.
In short, a waste of a wonderful art style and interesting ideas. Don't bother.

Two Worlds II's expansion Pirates of the Flying Fortress dropped from $30, to $5 according to xbldb.com.

Seems like a good deal for a pretty well-received game.

I remember I didn't much care for the Lucidity demo. I think I might pick it up for 160-200 MSP, but 400 seems to be a little bit much for it.

Whoa, they already changed the prices on last week's zombie deals. I know they still say 400 MSPs, but you'll need 800 to actually buy them. I was debating picking up Zombie Apocalypse and finally decided to do so this morning. Too late. Oh well. One less game I'm never going to play. :)

Cane somebody explain, why the two Two Worlds II DLC were this expensive in the first place? Does it add that much content?

On another note just was wishing for a sale price on lucidity last week and bam it happened so i will finally get the game =)

You guys never bought the Velvet GOTY Edition, which included both on the same disc, when it was $24.99 on Amazon (after discount code) exactly 367 days ago? Tisk tisk ...

Doing a quick refresh on the OP now, if nobody else is in there ... All done, have at it!
