Disappointed AC1 and AC2 are $9.99 each. They really should be $4.99 each at this point.


this is the selfish side of me coming out here, but I picked up AC2 GoD version for 800 points just this past December during the holiday sale and am kind of glad it wasn't cheaper now. :p

it's worth $10.

I have it already on GoD, along with all the dlc (need to download everything again though). I'm down to play anytime. Fucking love that game!


Yeah I sold my disc copy to Gamestop when it was fetching decent bucks but if I can get it cheap during this sale I'll be doing that.

I loved Reach. Halo 3's story was all over the place, in my opinion. But Reach - seeing a good planet fall in (near) real-time, fighting the good fight against tall odds....its the best Halo since Combat Evolved, but for entirely different emotional reasons.


(I still haven't played Halo 4.
)


Thanks..bought Reach. Does anyone know about any good deals on Microsoft Points ?

For real! I was gonna pick them up at 4.99 but 9.99 is too much for such old games like that.

Is Halo Wars worth it for $10?


This is cheapassgamer right? This is what Halo Wars was worth to me, plat hits and it comes with that DLC as well. Having said that I only played an hour of it & it was ok. Im not an RTS guy though, but how could I resist that price?

I believe that's a Target Clearance sticker. YMMV.

You're correct, those were put out on clearance 6 months ago. Finding one now would be near impossible.

Yup I got my copy as well from Target for that exact same price I believe I bought it last year around August or September. I really doubt anyone is gonna still find it for this price so I say if your interested get it on GoD for $10. The DLC in the Platinum Hits is for Multiplayer, there are still a few thousand people playing online when I played about 2 weeks ago. But you really dont need that DLC unless you plan on getting every achievement.

I sold Grid a long time ago, but at 400 MSP I decided to get the on-demand version. Grid 2 comes out in May :)

My coworker praises Halo Wars, but I don't feel compelled enough to pick it up :/

Does either game have a tutorial for proper racing? Forza doesn't so I spend a lot of time crashing into things.


Honestly i don't think either do BUT GRID is much easier to get into. Dirt 2 requires a lot of precision turns and speed control. It's a rally racing game so it's not so much about fastest as Fuck but getting around a track using the perfect driving route and style. GRID is more like for a but without customization and worrying about constantly buying cars. They let you pick a limited amount of cars per race and throw you in.

I'll probably get The Darkness and GRID towards the end of the sale just in case something good comes by on the daily deals. I got 800 points sitting on my account =P

yeah, it's totally YMMV. at the time some people were getting Halo Wars at that price, all the Targets I visited (4 of them) had it for around $15 and up.

If you have a PS3 and played uncharted then I don't think you can go back to them...atleast I couldn't....if you really want to play it for nostalgia then get it..if not just wait for the new one to drop.. I wouldn't get it personally.

Wow, a fellow Lynchburger! Well, I could probably say the same for you since I feel like I never get in on some things, but compared to some markets I don't think we do much harm to each other. I never buy more than one of anything though if that makes you feel better! ;)


Yeah, I couldn't believe it. I had to look at your location 3 or 4 times. Thought my old eyes were reading it wrong! I'm with you on the buying more than one issue. Never had the time or the energy to figure out how to make my millions flipping games! Guess I'll keep waiting for the lottery!:)

I would pick it up if you like the Halo series. I know its an RTS, but its simplified enough that it feels fresh to play it on the Xbox and it controls well. The campaign alone is very fun, you get to use a variety of units in the Halo universe, and the story is a prequel to Halo 1.

I enjoyed this game tremendously, it was only years later that I realized how much I enjoyed it (one of my favorite games this gen for sure, I own it twice on disc, standard and Platinum Hits version). Now I pretty much bought a PC just to play RTS games like Starcraft 2, but Halo Wars started that.

On the sales note, I picked up El Shaddai (rented it once, wasn't impressed, but at $3, its a no brainer), Dark Messiah and The Darkness. I pretty much own 99% of all the games that are on sale, but will pick some up if they are dirt cheap, are old (cause finding physical copies is harder), or want a backup copy on Xbox. I buy them with the idea that they won't transfer over to the next gen Xbox, that way, I'm preparing myself mentally and not raising my hopes.

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV), Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition (PS4).

I don't get the praise for Microsoft. They should have been doing this type of sale to begin with. It's like a kid wanting an extra cookie for doing the chores he was supposed to have been doing all along.

Legend is good but very short(8 levels?). Probably about half the length of Tomb Raider 2. The DLC for Legend(Anniversary) is excellent however.

PSN sales are routinely better than Microsoft sales (especially for Plus members). However, both companies can do a lot better.

I disagree but this is not a thread to debate the two consoles
