Nice. I'm in for Old World Blues. Already got the other two DLCs when they were on sale before.

Family Deals have never been family exclusive, they are just gold exclusive. Think of them as an extra one week gold only sale.


Ah. Thanks for the clarification (and thanks for putting together the awesome xbldb site!).
I want to be your sledge hammer.

I agree..they didn't discount the most recent add-on. I wonder why. And fallout 3 add-ons are veterans...they were on sale last year during same period for 200 points each or something like that.

I hope this time everyone that wants to buy the Fallout DLCs does so. I know there are a lot of you out there cause it seems every few days someone asks about Fallout DLC! Cross it off your lists now!!

haha! I just realized through reading this thread that there is another Fallout DLC. Didn't know about Lonesome Road, now I do, and can buy it. :lol:

I know I'm not the only one that appreciates your hard work. You and reddjoey are rock stars (possibly from Mars?).


This.


Thanks guys, I do my site so I won't miss any sales and to make sure things haven't been cheaper before. I figured if it was useful to me it would be useful to others, might as well share.

I still want Gunrunner's and Courier's Stash. Only $6 when not one sale (and it's not currently showing as on sale) so I might grab it now since it is useless once I finally finish off FO:NV

I know I should have waited to buy FO:NV complete edition but since I have already bought 2 of the DLCs when they were $5 a piece I might was well finish it off.

After hearing about "ultimate/GotY editions, I usually buy them used from GameStop, install the dlc, and return them for a refund.

What are the chances of a 75% off sale on NV? Also what is the best NV dlc?

I think it took over 2 year before the FO3 DLC got a 75% sale. Most likely you will see a complete edition before 75% off.

Today wasn't so hot, but so far this sale has been pretty good overall.

Pumped for the NV DLC sale, I will be snagging the last two.

A while back I posted asking gamers to rate the expansions from best to worst. IIRC, the general sentiment was Old World Blues > Lonesome Rd. > Honest Hearts > Dead Money > Gunrunner's Arsenal.

I'd wait, its a single player game and will surely drop eventually.

I'm glad to see the Fallout: New Vegas DLC go on sale. Already snagged the two when they were on sale before and now I can get the other two main ones. I would have liked Gunrunner's to go on sale, too, but I guess it's only $4 so it won't kill me.

Still, $2 would have been better! This is Cheap Ass Gamer, after all!

Fallout New Vegas DLC on sale? Yes! Now I can get the Lonesome Road after months of waiting. Wish the Gun Runers Arsenal and Pre order packs were on sale too.

Exactly, it's 320 point price may as well be 3200. I would have bought it at 160, but I am not budging (probably not true, when I go to buy my remaining DLC, I will likely grab it while I am at it..I am weak).

I don't know if anyboady caught this "hidden sale", but there's a couple of Indie Games that I saw were at a reduced price. Yeah, I know not everybody goes for the Indies, but there's quite a few \gems hidden under most of the mediocrity.

Twin Blades is normally 400 MSP, but I believe it was on sale a couple of months ago at 200 MSP. It's currently 200 MSP, not sure when this happened, but I found it out earlier.

Also, both Soulcaster games are 80 MSP each when they are normally 240 MSP a piece, if I'm not mistaken. There may be others, but I only spotted these ones because I was actually interested in buying them (and now they're on sale, sweetness!).
Show me a bored mind and I'll show you a mind that lacks innovation.

Looks like the drop of those is an experiment on the part of the developer: http://www.magicaltimebean.com/

One week ago, on December 13, I dropped the prices of my first two games, Soulcaster and Soulcaster II, to coincide with an article I wrote for IndieGamerChick (later picked up by Gamasutra). The short story is that Escape Goat wasn’t selling as well as I hoped, and my hypothesis was that it was because it was priced at 240 MSP instead of 80 MSP. The sales figures are finally in, so I can report what’s happened so far.

Bottom line: the price drop resulted in a staggering increase in revenue.

Twin Blades is a fun little game. It's a hack'n'slash side-scroller. If you have a Windows phone you can get the game for $3 and it has achievements. (Though the controls aren't as great as the Xbox version.) Personally, I'm hoping more Xbox Indies make the jump to the Windows phone.


EDIT: How did you find these, by the way? Just randomly looking?

Just picked up Broken Steel for Fallout 3. I actually finished the last side quest for Fallout 3 yesterday, so this is perfect timing. Are the other two dlcs worth buying at 400 msp?
