Wow insults in the OP. Classy.


Yea, pretty tactless and entirely unnecessary.

Really? People are bothered by the simplest thing that is brought up constantly every week deals are announced and now joked about and it's considered an insult? I Was expecting something in the very least on par with what you hear in a game of CoD online...

wow, being insulted by a mild jab at cry babies. :roll:

The level of thin skin some people demonstrate amazes me as someone who has grown up on the internet. Such is life I suppose there is always going to be someone looking to be insulted.

I broke down and bought Sonic and VF2 at the last minute despite holding off all week. I'm not a fighting game fan at all but loved SFII back in the arcade golden days. I'm awful at modern fighters so the '90s nostalgia and the easy achievements gave me a good excuse.

It's incredible how much perspective influences opinions. I remember being blown away by playing the first Virtua Fighter and Daytona on my Saturn. Wow, how can I move around in 3D like that?

Does anyone else have fond memories of Virtua COP? Man, I loved renting that one for Saturn even though I never had the lightguns and had to clumsily move the crosshairs around the screen with a directional pad. I'd love to see that re-released.

If it needs reiteration, the play-n-charge kit is pretty much crap. Mine hasn't been able to hold a charge in years, so I just use it with the dead battery and cable, since I only sit like 2-3 feet away from my console (I play on a monitor). I'm pretty amazed that MS ever thought old-fashioned batteries were a good idea, even in 2005. I guess they just wanted to sell more useless peripherals.


Like Seasick already mentioned, just get Eneloop rechargables and a decent charger and you'll never look back. Sanyo's Eneloops are the crop of the cream. They are more than affordable and since they hold a charge almost a year you can charge and store them no problem. Nice side effect, you are doing something good for the environment as well.

Not exactly what you mean, but Sega Superstar Tennis has a bunch of the underrated Sega classics as minigames, including Virtua Cop. Space Harrier and Puyo Pop were also really fun and they felt like updates to the classic versions. You should be able to find it at Gamestop for 99 cents.

Really? That's awesome! I've actually had the Tennis/XBLA Compilation disc for years but never bothered to try it out. I've got to do it now.

I actually have a lot of fun with the lightweight Sega releases this generation like Racing (Transformed was great) or the updated After Burner. Tennis was always on my to-play list. It doesn't hurt that they're always on sale and Sega seems to get that most of us like achievable achievements.

Maybe I'm part of the problem, but for once I won't mind to have Fallout: New Vegas DLCs as part of this week's DotW, since I only bought the base game recently thanks to that huge GoD sale :)

And yeah, I'm used to be butthurt by not seeing any of ME DLCs on sale by now, right to the point that it doesn't really hurt anymore... my broken heart's tears are the best lube... :cry:

I agree. The funny part is the "insult" in the OP was a general statement about how people always find something to complain about and that's exactly what we saw as a reaction to it.

I'm hoping for some FNV DLC on sale as well or something that's never been discounted before. Also, an update to the S&S+ app would be nice. I hope it's not done.

Hmm... I wonder if the S&S+ app will update. Would be weird if they just left it to die, but the fact that it didn't update last week keeps me from being optimistic about it.

Some people might want to check out other regions' prices for some of the GoD games. Sleeping Dogs is 400 MSP on the Swedish and Hungarian marketplaces, for example.
Note that when you buy it with a dummy account (you will need region-free MS points to do this) or a different region the license is only applied to that account, however it may be played by any other account on your system. Be sure to double check which titles are region locked and which ones aren't, too! ;)
There are guides for doing this; I'm sure somebody will post them.

Australia wins again with Sleeping Dogs Game on Demand $9.95 or 600 msp.
I was just looking at all the DLC for the game. Is there a game of year edition for this or coming soon?
If not, any dlc that stands out?

Uh... Scott Pilgrim fans heads up. I just went to play it all late night like I play my games :P 5am right now. Well I booted it up and it gave me an update... !!!... I download the update and it's a whole new menu screen, complete with Online matchmaking. I'm sitting here in the server list looking at a online game to join?

I didn't pay for an add-on... this is an update in-game.

Very confused. Just Wallace is the DLC, online matchmaking an update? Maybe, just guessing.

That one might be a price drop, as you say it's been on sale a few times.

Just register a new account and during sign up say your in hungary. Then look up a hungarian zip code everything else can be jibberish. THe thing is you need to add at least 800 point codes to the account not 400 points. Amazon sells region free points you can use though.
