Freakin right! Now all I need is Megaman X on the xbla and my life will be complete.



Maybe that will be the announcement next year by capcom.

I apologize if this has already been mentioned, but an asterisk for Deadliest Warrior and the Samurai Helmet avatar item may be helpful. If you're on the fence, the game is getting a retail release, along with its DLC and its sequel (DW: Legends), in early December for 30 bucks. As for the helmet, I believe it's unlockable via the game. 5 bucks isn't bad, but had I known before buying I'd have waited.

I'd bank on this dropping to around the $10 range within a few months of release.

Can you confirm if it is unlocked.

I'll add the game to the FAQ later today.

Just a heads up to all the CAGs, next week 100 bing points = 100 ms points!!!


Got a link? Just hoping it's not in "limited quantities" :roll: like the last Bing/MS point deal.

Limited to 1,000. I think with the 400 msp codes it was 5K, but I could be wrong about that. Expect it to go quickly.

Thanks.

They aren't the exact same item, but they are close.

New thread....sweet! Thanks for all the hard work reddjoey. I picked up Scott Pilgrim for the heck of it. Hopefully we get some good stuff around black Friday.

Thanks for all the hard work reddjoey. Easily my most checked and most commented on thread on CAG. Just out of curiosity what makes you stick with it and what is your avatar? Obviously something from the Simpsons.

How many fanboys does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

10, 1 to do it & 9 to complain how much better the 1st one was.

I just played around in the new 360 dash and premium themes are pretty useless now. Just a heads up for anyone who was thinking about buying one.

I do like the search and indie games seem to be a bit more visible. It took forever to load my games list but hopefully it just needed to index them the first time and it'll be faster when I turn on my console and try again.


useless? how? I would guess the old themes that was not a premium would be blocked by the metro design, but was hoping premium themes would still be worked in?

So I'm guessing the old themes would work then? Like, better than the premium ones?

I believe that's the evil mastermind Hank Scorpio (Scorpion if you are Homer).

Themes are basically the same as before.

Old themes still generate the grey orb o the bottom, and premiums do whatever color they designate.

However, when you go to your friends list, the backgrounds from the premium theme don't appear. That only appears when you bring up your profile, so you won't see them as much. The different backgrounds for system, etc still show up.

Nope. If I remember right it was a quick throwaway joke with one of the characters imagining something a bit misinterpreted. Forgot the exact joke, but it's not Hank Scorpio.

I do it because all the CAGs, (and lurkers I tell about CAG) love the thread.

As far as my avatar, it's an edited image from The Simpsons. In the episode Marge Get's a Job (Wikipedia/Snpp), Lisa says that Homer and Marge will be like Marie and Pierre Curie. Bart then imagines them as Godzilla like monsters. I think the joke is cut out in the syndicated episodes.

Nope. If I remember right it was a quick throwaway joke with one of the characters imagining something a bit misinterpreted. Forgot the exact joke, but it's not Hank Scorpio.


You pretty much got it.

That's right. Scorpio had orange hair anyway. :P

Don't you think if someone knew, they would have answered the last person that posted this right above you?

Paranormal has made me want more Pinball fx2 tables even worse than before but with the holiday sales so close I'd be stupid not to wait and see. If there still hasn't been a sale once Christmas is over I'm going against the CAG in me and just buying some of them.

Anybody think XBL will have some "Black Friday" deals. Hoping to snag a few arcade titles for the cheap.
:360: Is all I need.

Considering the track record for BF sales I'd say yes.

I lost my Gold last week. Have not really used my 360 (needs to get replaced anyway, then I can get a 360 that has a working disc drive and has wi-fi) since I moved though...I hope they're not any good sales until Black Friday so I can buy up good deals on Live subs. I remember adding a lot of XBLA titles in November...that was a very good few days of Live purchases.

Edit: just checked Major Nelson's post from last year and it seems I may not need Gold for Black Friday deals.
