I think 800 is a fair price for Iron Brigade. It's a good game. I got it for 600 myself.

Anyone interested in Hybrid? I've been avoiding shooters for about a year now, but I did enjoy the beta for this and liked the control scheme, hopefully the final version has more interesting maps because the potential is there.

It's definitely a game that would be more fun to play with others and remain in the same squad.

Remember that Counter-Strike: GO comes out in a few weeks, and that will most likely kill Hybrid's multiplayer community. But even if it doesn't, the community won't last long. They never do for shooters on XBLA.

Is bad company 2 worth 12.99 for games on demand?

It's my favorite BF game and probably one of my favorite shooters ever. The thing is,it's a lot cheaper on disc and has been getting $5 sales from BB quite often. I guess it really depends if having it on your hard drive is worth the extra money.

Two things:

Hybrid is priced into oblivion at 1200 Points. For an online-centric game, that guarantees a small userbase and thus poor sales over time.

Also, Microsoft isn't sending out review codes until Tuesday, the day before the game launches. This is in stark contrast to every other SoA title this year, which we got a week or more in advance. That could very well be a vote of low confidence in the game. Or they just don't want people on the servers yet for some reason, hard to say.

I'd like Hybrid to be good, but those two bits have me wary about it.

Unless it's called Battlefield 1943. Next game with similar stable community will be Counter-Strike: GO.

Yeah, Hybrid probably is going to be ghost town one month after release.

Good call you evil clown. All though I hate clowns I'm glad your wish has come true. Looks like Kingdoms of Amalur DLC is up on the dotw page. Def getting both DLCs. Not sure about the weapons pack, although probably will since nothing good has been up for so long. Anybody ever buy a weapons pack? Are the weapons better than anything you will find in the game? :applause:

Now all I need is some Gears stuff and I will be a happy soldier of the Cog.

Never thought it would happen. Going to end up spending just as much on dlc as I did for the game. Good recovery MS.

Nice. I was hoping we would see a sale sometime for Amalur dlc. I haven't even put more than a couple hours into the game but at the right price I will bite.
I'm just glad it didn't get pulled.

I could see them being like 560 each but 400 would be really cool.

Same, but the backlog is telling me I can wait. I Can wait for a looooong while and just forget.

We'll see what next week brings as well for final deciding factor.

Yes. Looks like 150 for each. Makes me wonder if they had planned more?

They said on twitter that they aren't giving early review codes because it's an evolving online world and they want it to be fair for everyone on day 1.

After playing the beta I would have never guessed this as an SoA title. It's that bad. Definitely not worth 1200 MSP especially for a game which was originally going to be FREE with microtransactions...

Just a heads up. The second DLC(not the pirate island one) I encountered a bug that wouldn't allow me to load any of my saved games. And with what happened with the company obviously I never heard back.

Not sure how widespread it was or if it was literally just me. But it was definitely while playing the second DLC so I never got to finish it.

I love KoA though and the first DLC was very much worth it.

Chain Reaction is Bioshock Themed:

1. 200 points off Protector Trials
2. 200 points off Sinclair Pack
3. 400 Points off Rapture Metro
4. 600 points off Minerva's Den

Sooo this is why Bioshock DLC wasn't DotW :lol:
