With that Prometheus trailer released not too long ago, I've been itching to play some Alien Breed. It hasn't been on sale in a year, here's hoping....

If you could schedule next semester around Tuesday mornings we'd all really appreciate it. :)


Honestly, I prefer morning classes and being free from 1pm on.

I have nothing in my inbox. Are these sent to everyone or only certain people? I get their weekend Deals e-mail as my last e-mail from them.

Any insight would be helpful as I could use some cheaper points!



They are account specific. Otherwise, I would post it but it won't work. You had to make a "recent" purchase.

Also, I'm torn on it. As much as I love Toy Soldiers 1 and 2, it really feels like they withheld the entire USSR campaign from Cold War so they could charge for it as DLC.


On the other hand, we'd still be waiting for Cold War to come out at all if they'd included that content. It literally hasn't passed certification (or hadn't when I checked in January), so it's not like the developer hasn't been working on it over time.

According to XBLDB, Toy Soldiers is now 800 MSP. It seems like a permanent price drop to me, but I can't be sure.

Your picture perfectly describes your post. Toy soliders new price was already reported. My bad if i sound a bit to harsh, but its on the page before.

Is blacklight worth 400 points?

I got it for the pc when it was on sale for 200 points. It seemed like a good game, but I never once was able to find a online match. And that was over a year ago, so I doubt anyone still plays it on the xbox.

Thank you for the reply.

I don't purchase too many things from NewEgg, so I'm not that surprised, haha.

I picked up the game a little over a month ago. Played several online games and I never had a problem finding a game.

The more I play Joe Danger the more I keep thinking of that Trials comparison. Basically Joe Danger is to Trials as Burnout is to Forza. Really that's all that's got to be said.

Picked up the two XBLA Sega racers on sale, because with the knowledge of Arcade Next promotion may mean a drought of sales I'd be interested in, I will not make the same mistake I made before in choosing to pass up on Unbound Saga for a lowered price. While I can and probably could hit the online multiplayer quota for this month's rewards, I am already assured the purchases has already knocked out that catergory for the reward offer, and I still intend on getting Skullgirls (which I haven't decided to just get on launch at full or wait for sale).

Youtube is not an issue for me, I have plenty to look up for the time, but 10 hours of ESPN may be difficult if there's not enough basketball/football clips I'm interested in. I may have to try that other free app, Crackle, to make up for the remainder of the 10 hours under "entertained" for the Triple Play reward.

I did hope those Games on Demand would have offered the games we all had wanted on sale. When it was recognized as just a Microsoft Games Studio GoD sale, it is still disappointing that nothing was offered which would have put me at a crossroads. I would have seriously considered something like Lost Odyssey (which I believe is a Microsoft Games Studio release), since that one I cannot find for cheap brand new on a tangible disc.

When I think about it, most of the Microsoft Games Studio published releases I do not have yet and want are typically of the XBLA variety. One title you've been talking about are the Toy Soldiers games. Unlike many others here, I have trouble enjoying the game, because I got stuck on that mission where you have to only use a plane to stop all invading forces. I lack the skill to bomb accurately or shoot everyone down in once pass on the planes, so I stopped playing the game when I cannot complete that mission. It is still surprising the sequel has not seen a sale yet, given the rest of the last Summer of Arcade titles have seen a discount before. The lack of sales for the Toy Solders DLC brings to light how there was and are XBLA titles we want or have purchased because they were on sale, yet the respective DLC for those same titles don't tend to see a discount. There's so much content we could have on sale, which I hope we see later today.


Only a few more hours until we find out about this week's DotW. Like always, hoping for the best, expecting the worst. Was "What 2 Play" a result of our votes for wanting dashboard programming on sales? Well, it's redundant so far, it just tells us of sales of the current week which we can just find out from this thread or just digging into the crappy dashbooard. I think they misinterpreted, we wanted knowledge of future sales.

Major Nelson, he's the gatekeeper, and he holds all the keys ... I have seen sales, but no discounts are large enough ...

So, Pinball Arcade today, right? Right?! They can't find another reason to delay a pinball release, RIGHT?! Who's with me on getting this one?

I can't say I'm a fan of them bundling the packs with previously-released PHoF tables but more pinball in the world is never a bad thing.

For the first time, I was happy to live in Germany because we got a deal on this while the rest of the world had Dead Rising Arcade Deals lol =P (Dead Rising games aren't available here)

(but really it's no fun if they don't even thin about releasing games like the first Gears titles or Dead Rising...Duke Nukem...Wolfenstein...and many more lol)

and don't even mention the entertaining apps lol...awful here just awful...

First Toy Soldiers game is 33% off now (800MSP). Maybe permanent price drop? It's not Gold only offer. Too much, bought a code for second game for $5 month ago.

LOL, on their FB page Sunday they said they screwed up the certification docs and that the game won't release until April 4, 2013. It was probably the funniest April Fools thing I saw that day.

Why does Major Nelson only post the deals once every two weeks? Why not just post them every week for the following week. This way there isn't this 6 day period (wednesday-monday) where no one knows what games are going to be on sale. If they were keeping it secret to try to maximize sales up until the sales date then why publish them for two weeks at a time ? If they list them early so people save up points/buy more points in anticipation of the sale to buy guys they normally wouldn't then this also makes no sense to me ? Am I missing something from a logical perspective here?

Duh, of course. I think I was getting confused with looking up the new PS+ releases for today.

LOL, nice. Unfortunately, with pinball releases any nebulous far-off date is believable.

Well I'll be damned, DOTW is an SNK sale. KOF and Metal Slug games, 50% off. Also Hydro Thunder for some reason?

EDIT: Man I am never on time.

Picked up Hydro Thunder for 400 points late 2010. Definitely worth 600. Dunno how active Multiplayer is though.

Nothing for me this week though. Off to buy Daytona USA before the deal poofs. :P

For the first time ever! Glad i didn't bought XX at full price. Metal Slug 3 was well worth at 800tps, now is no brainer.

Overall excellent sale this time!
