If you're like me and have no idea what some of that meant:

Undead Nightmare Collection -> Red Dead Redemption DLC
The Passing -> Left for Dead 2 DLC
Stubbs the Zombie -> Xbox 1 game(but you should all know that :))
Twin Blades -> Nice looking xbox indie game.

Yay, Case West.
Now all I need is Case Zero and I can finally start playing Dead Rising 2.

I just picked up RDR yesterday for $20 at Wal-Mart. I think I should grab the Undead Nightmare as well while it's on sale.

The only question is should I get the collection for 1000 or just the UN Pack for 800? Do people still play the MP?

Get the Collection. You'll be happy that you did.

So... is the 30% discount on the Gamertag change the actual "Deal of the Week?"

...

If I have ever previously made a statement about "Worst DOTW Ever," I categorically rescind any such comments.

Not that I'd ever pay for either but this is probably a better deal than 30% off avatar clothes.

Unfortunately, the Rock Band packs for sale are pre- RB3 (Except the Bon Jovi one - which I already have) so no keyboards or Pro-instruments. Guess it's a pass on this week as well. Too bad, because I usually enjoy Rock Band deals. Metallica Blink-182 Lady Gaga Bon Jovi Queen

Fable (games on demand) is one of the deals this week, discounted to 800 MSP.

My question is does this version have all the content of the Lost Chapters retail edition? I'd like to get the most complete edition I can, but the GoD one is so convenient.

(For interest's sake, the other discounted games are Black, Crash Bandicoot: Wrath of Cortex, and The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning, all 800 MSP).

I'm fairly certain that it's NOT the Lost Chapters version. I played through Lost Chapters on 360 and there are some definite stability issues; I think the original release was less problematic with the BC.

Drats. On one hand, I want the extra content, but on the other hand, I want to actually be able to play it.

Oh, I finished the whole game, so it does work... you just need to save often and expect the occasional freeze if you go with the Lost Chapters rev.
