Bastion was pretty good but bored me. Still, it's much more a real game than an indie game so I begrudge nobody who buys it.

Just a question, in Rock of Ages, are you actually able to build real defense? Because it sure seemed like in the demo nothing you could build would actually annoy the rock at all. The whole game just seemed like a rock rolling race to hit the enemy door three times.

Weird, on my dash, I get...

Battlefield -> LA Noire -> Alice -> Batman skins -> Kinect Sports 2.

No mention of the sales.


Yeah, same here. Good thing I'm boring and check this thread/xbox.com way too often

Bastion for 600? Hell yes! I'm happy with it. Is the dlc worth picking up?

Granted I only played the demo of Chime, but how the heck do you get shit on by Chime?

It seems like no matter what, 3 times is the sweet spot to knock the door down. Im not sure Ive seen how much a decimated rock can keep it to less than 3.

Maybe you can destroy the rock completely and that keeps it to 4 turns

Bastion is a tough one for me. I know Steam is gonna have this for $5 sooner rather than later. Also isn't the DLC on the PC free? I have a ton of MS points from sales and such so that's not the issue but should I pay the premium to play on Xbox on my 50 inch. anybody that has played it on both the PC and the 360 that can comment?

From the screenshots, Leedmees looks fun(-ish)... And now my dilemma: I don't own a Kinect. I might eventually. So, do I buy it just in case? Or do I hope it goes on sale again by the the time I get one?

Well I heard controls for leedmees was AWFUL. Something about kinect movements crapping out in the game..Not sure if that has been fixed in an update or not.

Think I'll pass hole in the wall sounded like a good game but I didn't care for the trial that much if I do purchase it will be a last minute decision. Unless leedmees changed since its release I wouldn't get it if it were 200 points the trial just frustrated me.

Yeah, you should see something on the dash near the ad for the holiday sales that shows zune and avatar stuff in their own box.

I did not enjoy the demo for HITW. You have a wall moving at you - just as in the show, and you know if you have the correct pose by your outline on the wall being red or green. It seemed to me that I needed to follow whatever made the outline green rather than match the shape of the hole.

Don't know anything about Leedmees, so I decided to download the demo. Just as I clicked "Try the Demo" on the left next to the Main game description, my screen moved a bit due to some add being loaded, so I actually clicked "Buy Now" and thinking I had the trial selected, I confirmed my purchase.

Oh well. IGN gave it a 7, but even if it is the worst game ever, it's mine now and no-one can take that away from me (LOL). If I get the chance, I will try and give it a play tonight or tomorrow afternoon and post comments.

Good idea! Kinect deals are lame! And this one doesn't even include Fruit Ninja, which is definitely gonna be on sale at some point and take up another day of our precious daily deals. GROAN!

At least if it is 2nd day sale...it shows 2 games instead of one..that's good..hopefully other day sale show more games than just one!

I'm a Kinect fan, but neither leedmees or hole in the wall excite. I played the demo for HitW and it was the most awful POC I played all year. Saving my points for the rest of the week!

Oh, man. That pretty much equals a 3 on a true 1-10 scale.

I will only groan if there's no Half Minute Hero sale. That and Bastion were my two big wants.

I own a kinect and won't even bother to download the demos. Big NO from me.

If you feel like looking back, there's been a couple links posted for last year's sales. I believe they did contain some older games.

Yep, it has been $5 on Steam already and I assume it will be again during the holiday sale.

It is a good game on either platform. Get it for whatever you would prefer to game on the most. Yes, the PC DLC is free, but it is only $1 on XBLA, so I wouldn't let that sway you too much.
