So basically they pulled almost every Marvel game off all the marketplaces. Even the pretty recent Deadpool. It's great they've put them on sale, but as Capcom pointed out their games were going to be delisted, Activision should have said so as well. I get it, it's Activision, not exactly on the consumer's side, but it would actually make sense for them to try to cash in as much as they can since the games are going to die anyway. Let that be at 1$ or 20$, just tell people this is the last chance to buy 'em, and see how many will do that. If I knew for sure, I could have picked up Deadpool, but at this point I'll probably have to find a used copy or something: from which, not a single cent would go to Activision, unlike what would have happened if I bought it at this sale.

Oh well. At least I bought Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (the whole Internet seems to agree it's the best out of all of them, while the others are hit or miss this one's great) and Wolverine, along with the cheap DLC for it. Along with Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3, I sure got my share of Marvel action for a while (considering I didn't have a single Marvel game on my 360 yet).


So many of those Marvel games were absolutely awful. All Spiderman games have been crap recently. Xmen Destiny should have been a XBLA game. Shattered Dimensions stole precious time from my life, that could have been spent doing...anything else. ..Spidy: Web Of Shadows wasn't horrible, but it was close to horrible. The only game I'm upset about missing out on is Deadpool. The rest of those games really were just taking up space. My opinion.

I agree. I bought Web Of Shadows due to the reccomendations here and while I sorta enjoyed it, the game was far from anything resembling something good. I trudged through it because the combat was okay but by the time I got to the third act everything became so damn repetitive, and I was just looking forward to the game being over at that point.

Fuck Asstivision. I will never buy anything associated with them again.

I got myself Shattered Dimensions (lots of recommendations, good ratings on the Internet, enjoyable gameplay on YouTube) and Wolverine (looks pretty damn solid and gruesome). The others looked largely meh, Deadpool aside which could have been a lot of fun and will likely pick it up for 10-20 bucks - obviously on disc at this point. It's not really about the quality though, it's about the fact they pulled the games without telling anyone. Yeah, there were hints, such as the Marvel games made by Capcom were getting pulled, and the fact the Activision games kept going on sale more and more often (twice in December). But Capcom managed to make it clear the games were going to be de-listed, why didn't Acti do the same? I'm no marketing expert or salesman, but I'm pretty damn sure that if people knew it well that this was going to be the last time they can buy these games (digitally, at least), more of them would have picked them up. Hell, if I were 100% sure, I might have bit on Deadpool's price - which at this point is a mystery for the future, as it could go down to all-time lows in a matter of weeks because it's not that amazing of a game (based on the reviews anyway), but it could also fly all the way up to crazy prices, since they're not going to print new copies and there's no way to buy a digital copy either. They could be the worst games ever, but a lot of people are going to be annoyed by this.

Ska Studios (maker of The Dishwasher series, I maed a game with zombies in it, and Charlie Murder) released Time Viking and Spaceraptor for the indie marketplace. It's totally worth $1.

I read the deadpool axing is for digital copies only, should still be able to get a disc copy anywhere.

So naturally after the sales are all over NOW I get an influx of MS monies.

2x $3 Ms credit from Bing. Then they gave me another bonus of Bing rewards. I had enough to get $5 Amazon which was used to get $5 MS credit. Then another $5 from amazon from swagbucks which also was used for MS credit.

All I got during the sale was TWAO ep 1 and Eternal Sonata....plus my gold expires on Jan 14th. Glad I already have TR since Im unsure about renewing.

Agreed. Ironically I'm not a fan of their bigger games like The Dishwasher and Charlie Murder, but I maed a game with zombies in it was just histerical and so much fun to play. This one is easily more insane, though it is pretty easy to beat it in one run. For $1 it's totally worth it, besides there's local coop and high scores too. Plus laser cats. Everybody loves laser cats.

I'll chime in on Lego games-I never could get into them, I always got bored pretty quickly. I tried Lego Marvel on my brothers recommendation and...WOW. What a fun game! Completely took me by surprise.

I think the addition of dialogue made all the difference. Tons of snarky humor, tons of characters, open world to explore, etc. And again, it's just plain FUN.

I purchased Lego Batman 2 on the sale because I heard it is also open world with dialogue. Tempted on LOTR as well.

For the record, the only game you may have trouble finding physically is Xmen Destiny because technically due to the Silicon Knights lawsuit, they had to issue a recall on everything named in the suit, and the only Marvel title was Xmen Destiny is memory serves. Otherwise the Marvel delistings shouldn't have ANY effect on the physical copies of these titles, where applicable (Obviously some of these are only XBLA titles, and that really sucks).

Started Deadpool last night and while the gameplay is nothing special the presentation of the game is awesome.  I have a grin on my face the entire time.  Writing is great and Nolan North is in awesome form with his Deadpool.

There was a link posted yesterday where the Activision community manager accepted some blame for not getting word out about it.  Whether he'll live up to the promise to be better about it in the future remains to be seen, but it's at least an acknowledgment that someone there dropped the ball.

Have you opened the physical copy and played it?  Enough to know you'll still get a lot of gaming out of it?  I'm not familiar with the game, but I have Gears 3 and Borderlands 2 physical, but bought them both when their GoD hit $10 because I know I'll still get plenty of gaming out of them to justify paying to not have to get up and switch discs when the mood strikes me.  If that makes me wrong, ... well, that's just something else to add to the list.

I wish I had gotten in on that deal. They still haven't unbanned my billing address. Oh, well.

Also, I bought over a dozen games and am itching to play them all. Yet here I am at work with nothing to do... I miss winter breaks.

Try working 7 days a week, sometimes for almost 12 hours in a day.

But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

That and Too Human were supposed to be pulled from stores. So finding a sealed copy should be tough, and used copies might be overpriced by people thinkin they are some rare treasure.

Probably has two jobs. The bad news is it kills your entire day, the good news is you never have time to actually spend any money. 

 

The worse news is you never really have time to play any games. When i personally work 11-12 hour days I find myself too fried to be able to handle video games. Those become TV nights because it's a completely passive activity.

That's the only game I've truly regretted snagging for a buck.
