Shame, that game is actually kind of fun. Any clue why it was delisted? Maybe a licensing issue with the Yars name?

It was published by Atari, so probably not.

Agreed. It was decent enough for what was a remake done in the style of Star Fox & such. I really need to go back to that one of these days. Wonder if this means the other Atari remakes will get taken down.

The Demo there is free. There's also a video simply titled "Yar's Revenge" that is free as well. It's 21.42 MB, my guess is that is what you downloaded.


Yeah that must have been it, if it's been delisted why is the demo still available ?

Couldn't you buy it from the demo version ?

That's a good question. My guess is you'll probably just receive some sort of Marketplace error, but I won't be home for another 7 hours to test that. Hopefully someone else can confirm.

Haven't tried it with this game, but it's never worked before with other delisted games. Usually, like nCogNeato says, you just get an error message when you try to buy it through the demo.

EDIT: Apparently it works with the Pinball FX1 demo, or at least it did at one point.

I want to say it worked for me with Pinball FX, but I could be wrong.

I think it got delisted when FX2 came out because you could buy the FX1 tables in a pack, but I had the demo downloaded so I bought FX1 so I could get the FX1 achievements as well as get the tables in FX2.

This is true, had the option to buy it for 800 Points would have done it if I was able to get the DLC packages for this game as well hate, when I can't complete games, because it's no longer obtainable :X

Same for Marble Blast..had a full game code, but DLC wasn'r available anymore so I traded it hum...

Still have the demos of Diner Dash and Double Dragon wish I could unlock the full games somehow haha =P hate when games getting delisted >.<" they could at least make a sale before it's gone forever ._.

Yeah, kind of "soon to be delisted" Dotw :applause::lol:

I don't understand why they do not lower the price in the months prior to the delisting. That way at least they would get more money for their product.

btw Another delisted game - Yar's Revenge - http://marketplace.x...15-d80258410aa1

Got really cheap code from cag member last year, but still haven't played it yet.


Damn it! I actually liked the demo, but didn't want to pay the 800 for it. I should have just bought the thing despite my backlog. I was wondering if this might happen.

If I was somehow able to track down a code for the full game, would I still be able to download it? I have the demo so it should just be a matter of unlocking the full game.

Edit: I can't unlock the game through the demo version, it doesn't show up, but perhaps a code would allow me to since it would be seen as a purchase I made before the delisting.

Speaking of Atari's remakes... I thought Warlords was pretty good. Takes a little while t get used to, but it's fun when you get the hang of it. Not much long-term appeal outside of multiplayer once the relatively short campaign is over though.

Of course all this is my opinion but I just finished Deadlight and I absolutely HATED the game. I did not really even want to finish the game but since I spent 600 MS points (200 too many for sure) over the Xmas sale I felt the need to see it through. I actually liked the story that was there and I could have forgiven some of the clunky mechanics and response times but combined with the level designs they just blew balls. Whether it was taking my gun out to slow or sometimes climbing a wall fast and sometimes slow the gameplay just frustrated me to no end. Then you have zombies that kill you faster than you can respond plus times when the ceiling just decides it is going to cave in on you.

I am not a very good platform gamer but the amount of cheap shit in this games was ridiculous. I cannot count how many times I had to start a part over. The only saving grace is the checkpoint system was good so you never lost too much work. Also, hey just start the part over and not wait till I hit a button AGAIN. I am not even sure I could recommend this game to be honest. I was that frustrated with it.



That is unfortunate to hear. The Amazon PCDD rep is trying to put together a Microsoft arcade PC bundle and Deadlight is on the list. I was really looking forward to playing it but maybe I'll focus on Mark of the Ninja first. Thanks for the review.

Deadlight was very good in my opinion, only problem I had with it was that it was rather short. I bought it for 1200 or so, but if you could get it for half price I'd say that seems pretty good.

Damn I wanted Yar's Revenge :(
At least there's on Steam but I'd like to keep everything on my main gaming platform...
Also, I bought Apples to Apples but not the DLC :(

I think I'm gonna spam Major Nelson and ask for a warning on the games about to be delisted. [Edit: OK I tweeted my request to Major Nelson]
It will be better if you do the same. Let's brainwash them about it!

From what i remember this game was removed few days after release, wtf? I was going to wait for a sale, ah well. :roll:

Bought most of the old 400msp Atari games, except Asteroids, which seems most broken of them all. I think it wouldn't take too long until they disappear as well.

This thread has definitely died down which is good for our wallets.

I'm tempted by the Sleeping Dogs DLC now that people are saying Square Enix never releases GOTY editions which is what I was holding out for. I'm not too worried with the DLC having been on sale a few times already.

I noticed RB Blitz was removed from the S&M app but see there was a valid explanation for that. I already own that and BBR and had written off Dance Rhythm but the trial was pretty fun so now I'm debating whether to buy it or not.

Hole in the Wall was tempting for 200 MSP but after playing the trial I think it will be more frustrating than fun. I'll have to play the Home Run Stars trial to see if I like it.

The Cave looks sweet but my backlog defeats that notion. I'm in for the Max Payne 3 season pass though whenever it does go on sale. How is the MP? I got the game during Black Friday and haven't touched it yet.

On another note, I hit 100,000 GamerScore yesterday. Pretty crazy! I've had my 360 since May 2006.

I have the other two Rhythm games and I think that both are great :)

I'll "buy" it only when it's free.

Bought the Sleeping Dogs DLC, and I'd say Nightmare In North Point is really only worth it for the achievements. It's extremely short (5 missions I think?), and there's not much there in the way of side quests. And even then it's only beat up on a group of vampires or kill a demon. Not to say it's "bad" per say, but it feels Saints Row-ish in terms of value for your money.

That said, the achievements are really easy although getting the five gold medals are a tad grindy.

As for The Dragon Master Pack, I'd say pass. It's a mostly cosmetic DLC. Not to say that the cars don't look cool, but still. Only thing that's good about it is it's an alternative way to max out your triad and cop experience (although the latter you should get in the main game). Otherwise, the "missions" it give you are a bit repetitive.
