Nope, never purchased anything from the XBLM or been intoxicated either. And I never plan to do either.

Cheapy, does this happen to have anything to do with Time Pilot being in your last 3 Played Games on your XBL profile?

Not yet, but I bet Cheapy has some. Whenever I'm wasted playing 360, I never (luckily) have any points.

hey, i found Time Pilot to be fun:) i know if i didnt get deals on these points i wouldnt buy alot of the stuff on there but when you get them cheap enough i dont have any regrets...

Only thing i worry about is when the new Xbox comes out...what will happen to all our games we paid for:roll: , hopefully it carries over as well as the Achievement points.

Hell yes. I bought Bejeweled, Crystal Quest and Frogger on three separate occasions after pounding about 6 or 7 Twisted Teas. I'm hardcore biatch!!! I kind of don't regret Crystal Quest though since I am near the Top 100 on the leaderboards by sheer luck even though I don't like the game at all.

Basically everything I buy off Marketplace seems like a waste. I have some points left from when I first bought my 360 so I just use them slowly. I will never buy a Marketplace card again unless something amazing comes out on it. I just can't keep throwing money on stuff that is free on the computer and I can't even resell stuff bought from marketplace.

I need 1 more sign up if anyone could help please. http://www.yourfree360games.com/index.php?ref=244985

Damn, I just posted about this in the 360 forum BEFORE I saw this thread.

I bought Lumines over the weekend while under the influence of both friends and alcohol. "LOOK AT THAT SHIT, buy it up man!"

However, overall I have been pretty restrained as far as buying crap I don't want. I know the day may come where the PS3 or Wii becomes more appealing to me, so putting money towards Marketplace points would basically become throwing money in the garbage. Less money I've spent on XBLA, less guilt if I decide to sell the system later.

I bought both Mutant Storm Reloaded AND DOOM (true.com free points promo ftw) while drunk and I love 'em both. I bought Enchanted Arms while completely sober and I've played it all of 3 hours.

I bought Gauntlet while I was sober... it sucks so much.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

I'd really like to shake the hands of the person who can go through several prompts to complete an xblm transactions, while under the influence.

guess we could always ask major nelson if they could put in a new prompt for xblm marketplace transactions "Are you drunk?" before the transaction can finish

Never bought anything while drunk on Arcade. Though with the only point card I purchased, I got SF HF and the bonus PGR3 packs. Looking back SF was atotal fucking waste. I still stick with my Anniversary Collection copy. Probably the next I'll get is the pool game, only because it comes with the 12 month kit (BB bucks ftw!). Been wanting it for a while, but I'm not paying 15 bucks for it.

When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

You're preaching to the choir, man. I like Jessie and Dead Rising, which is why I got it, but they made her theme a freaking postage stamp in the middle of your screen. wtf? Should have put a little more research into that.

I also got Doom because of how great it was back in the day, but I still haven't even played further than the original shareware release.

There needs to be a 3 day waiting period of Live content like with handguns. Give you a chance to back out of it.

I've never been intoxicated.

But I did by Dead or Alive Xtreme 2... it makes me wonder.

Am I even human?

And the only Xboxlive games i've purchased (and acctually regretted) is Uno and Geometry Wars. I dont play either that much. Dont have that much fun with them either.
