Agreed. Microsoft and Sega should have sales and new releases tailored specifically to my tastes. I am entitled to at least this much.

I spend a lot of money on XBLA, so Microsoft needs to meet my sense of entitlement each and every week. My mom tells me I'm special every day. She isn't wrong.

No need to be a jerk about it. I think it is reasonable to expect sales for different genre's from week to week. That's not necessarily how it happens, but in theory you would please more of your consumers by mixing it up.

Anyone purchase Jojo's BA and can give me their opinion on it? Seems like an okay game and don't think it'll go on sale for cheaper anytime soon so thinking of picking it up for some quick play with friends.

If you like 2D fighters, it feels a lot like Street Fighter but with some unique gameplay elements like switching between a character and his spirit familiar (Stand). The graphics and animation are great, and the story is pretty good for an arcade game. Considering the regular price is way too high, I recommend grabbing it while it's on sale.

Agreed. How dare they put games that have never been on sale before on sale this week? Darn you, Microsoft and SEGA!

Nowhere did I say anything like that. The games aren't for me, so it's a boring set of sales. I got a few of the Games on Demand that were on sale before, which makes it alright for me.

I'll just make positive posts around here from now on.

Pretty much this. It's just a shame that some of the stuff that was added to the console version, like the Super Story Mode & the Gallery, were removed, but I think it was due to licensing issues (which would explain why some of the names/band references were changed. Plus Namco has the rights at the moment with All-Star Battle coming out in August (in Japan. No word on US)). In any case, it's still a decent game, though can feel kind of bare-boned compared to its console version & other fighting games that were re-released on XBLA/PSN.

Sorry, I just smeared honey all over my keyboard.

Maybe they'd be more interested in engaging you for non-snarky conversation if you suggested what you'd rather see on sale, a conversational direction that seems to give everyone here a raging boner, myself included.

That being said, I can't think of what I'd like to see a discount on. Not at the moment anyway.

I was just commenting that it wasn't an interesting sale to me. There doesn't need to be a discussion about why it's not interesting to me or whatever. If I wanted to have an in-depth discussion, the post would've been more in-depth to incite that sort of discussion.

Dude, I don't think you realize just how much of a downer you really are. I was... just sayin'.

And I think you narrowly missed my point, but I'm really not interested in dragging this out.

I apologize. Microsoft would have probably increased their XBLA revenue this week if they would have diversified the genres a little bit. It's their loss and our loss. I make too many negative posts so I'm in no place to poke fun. Sorry again.

Didn't see either of these things mentioned yet, but the Family Gold Pack is no longer available for purchase and the Kinect XBLA game Matter has been canceled.

Don't really care about the former, but Matter looked kind of cool when it was revealed at E3.

And the cancellation news just keeps on coming ... New Dance Central 3 DLC Releases Ending in March .
-

Hey everyone! The Dance Central 3 team has been hard at work, bringing you fresh routines with authentic, challenging choreography on an almost-weekly basis. Between downloadable content releases and disc routines from Dance Central and Dance Central 2, the Dance Central 3 song library now features over 200 tracks, an impressive list of hits spanning multiple genres, dance styles, and decades. That’s enough dancing to keep any party going all night!

As Harmonix moves forward with several new titles currently in development, the talented developers who make this content are needed on other projects. With the Dance Central DLC team moving around, this month will be the last DLC for Dance Central 3 for the near future. We’ll still be hard at work supporting the community with updated Live Challenges and leaderboards, and the Music Store will still be up and running for you to grab any routines you might have missed!

We’re always cooking up new ideas to keep you busy on the dance floor, so keep suggesting tracks and chatting with us and other Dance Central fans through these forums, the Dance Central Facebook page, and @Dance_Central on Twitter.

-
Probably necessary to hold off hiring short-term employees (who would then be summarily laid off) and staff up some other Xbox 720 / PS4 / WiiU project. I'd imagine the Microsoft / Harmonix relationship is closing down ... since Microsoft now has other Kinect partners, and Harmonix has enjoyed good relations with all 3 platforms ... so we'll see what happens next. Maybe a closeout sale later in 2013?

Reminder, there's 2 current deals on points y'all should keep tabs on:
  • Buy the "Gears of War: Judgment" season pass card (aka 1600pts) @ GameStop for $19.99, get a 400pt code for free.
    Note, it's not available yet, but definitely on or before March 19th.
  • Buy a 1200pt card w/ (nearly)instant-delivery, and take 15% off with code @ Newegg for $12.75 post-discount.
    Code is only good between March 6th - 11th ... and like many Newegg deals, it could expire if demand exceeds expectations.

Both deals are over at EastX's "points & codes" thread here ... http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=248984

You'll just stay on the plan now until it expires, I'm not sure if you'll be able to renew into a new Family Gold Plan. I would assume not.

Then again Dance Central is literally the flagship title of Microsoft's Kinect. It'd be stupid if they launch the new XBox with the new rumored packed in (but sounding more and more true) Kinect without DC4 as a launch title.

Agreed. After they've put so much energy into the Dance Central series (which has received the most positive critical feedback of any Kinect game), I doubt they will neglect to do a new one for the next Xbox console. I imagine the new Kinect is just what the series needs to shake things up.

If I get co-op moves then I'd be so happy, but also it's the game that benefits most from the upgrade since (as much as I love my Kinect) it's one of the few games that works on that damn camera. Plus I forgot the article, but I remember hearing Harmonix working on about four or so games right now as well. If one of those is not Dance Central after they give that game 3 E3 mainstage presentations (with a goddamn Usher performance!) then I'd be shocked and might kill myself.
