Going to try demos for
Rayman 3 HD
Alan Wake's American Nightmare
Rock of Ages
Stacking
Warp
Rocket Riot
Splatters


Never played La Noire, considering getting Rockstar Pass and picking up a cheap copy of the game. Is there anything not included in Rockstar Pass? Is the dlc even worth it? or should i just get the GOTY version?

I think there is one case exclusive to the PS3 & the 360 GOTY. I have the GOTY, but haven't played it yet.

The only way to get The Consul's Car case on the 360 is from the Complete Edition. It's not available for download individually or via the Rockstar Pass.

Is the DLC worth it? It's hard to answer without knowing if you'll like the base game. It's just more cases. I like the game quite a bit and was glad that I picked up the Rockstar Pass.

Oh boy...I just spent a crapload of spacebucks on games like Bloodforge, Sine Mora, Joe Danger DLC, and other stuff I've been waiting to go on sale.

I do admit that I'm a points hoarder. I buy MS points when they go on sale and never use it unless there's a promotion or sale. This one takes the cake for now.

Just submitted a wiki edit with a price list (without all the links), including some leftovers. Anyone check the Sales & Specials app yet? (Forgot to check it during the week cause I have all the games, but I'm not too upset over losing a chance for the free mask). I'll probably check it in a few myself and add it to the edit along with the Popcap stuff.

I'd definitely say the Rockstar pass is worth $5 if you have the vanilla already, but if you don't, just buy the GotY for the Consul's Car case. I'm still really annoyed they never released it as DLC for vanilla copies, how hard could it be?

Got an alt account for Steam cards? Sick of not getting all your drops before the market crashes? Tired of all the hours spent catching up on all your alt's drops? Send me a PM!

Was just checking the meta critic scores to see if Bloodforge was worth picking up and wow did it get some horrible scores...


Yeah, I've heard that a lot. Tyler can vouch for it being an awesome game. Finally picking up this game. My patience has paid off


Haha thanks Dustinator, nice to know my constant championing of Bloodforge isn't going unnoticed.

Bloodforge was an AWESOME hack 'n slash game pre-patch, supposedly the patch has made the game quite a bit easier, which should fix the main complaint that most gamers/reviewers had.

The other major concern about the game was the camera was a little sensitive. I don't know if the patch addresses that at all, but it's something you can just adjust to before you even complete the first level.

Another Pop Cap sale? Seriously?


Ya I was disappointed when I saw that too. And it's the same damn prices everytime. If Heavy Weapon or Astropop would ever actually drop to 200msp (since they probably should be 400msp regular price) I would buy them in an instant.

Haha this stuff is on sale almost every day.

Mark of the Ninja for 800msp? Wasn't supposed to be 1200? If this is correct price i'm buying it. :)

Glad i waited for some of the 800msp tables for Pinball FX2.


Mark of the Ninja was definitely announced for 1200. Major Nelson probably just goofed and will stealth-edit it later today. However, I hope it's not a typo and 800 is the normal price.

Only point is, the second one is much harder to complete lol this is why I didn't buy it the last time it was on sale hum

As for this sell:

Limbo and Alan Wake: AN are easy recommends for 600msp. Alan Wake is kind of repetitive just because how they made the game, but it's still well worth 600msp.

I can definitely recommend Warp, I had a blast with it. My only gripe was that it's one of those games that closes down paths after a certain point, so there are definitely missable items/achievements.

Bloodforge is easy to recommend as well, as metioned above, and so is Raskulls if you never picked it up during a previous sale. Rocket Riot is an AWESOME DEAL at 200msp, though the game gets really hard in the final 10 levels. I still haven't beat the final boss.

I can't as whole-heartedly recomment The Simpsons game, Rock of Ages, or Assault Heroes. They all have their moments, and at 50% off I don't think anyone would really regret getting them, but I didn't enjoy any of them all that much.

As for me, I have almost all of it, but I'll be demo'ing Assault Heroes 2 and Mad Riders. Also, I beat Stacking 100% on my friends PS+ account and didn't love it, but for 300msp I'll probably end up buying that as well.

Also, I too would like to know what's on the Sales & Specials App, if someone could boot up their Xbox and post it. Hopefully Scarygirl, I think that's the game I want the most that still hasn't been on sale...

Man...what a sale! Really glad I decided to hold off on Bully yesterday (ultimately, I decided that if I ever really want to play it on 360, I'll buy the disc somewhere). Picked up Alan Wake's AM, Warp, Marvel V&V, and Simpsons Arcade. Yay for first time sale items! :)

Damn. Just got off my Xbox, but NyPickle beat me to it. Guess someone besides me has the day off, lol. Couldn't figure out what the winning prize is though..

Updated the Wiki, hopefully someone can find out what the winning prize is. And I'm surprised Hot Pursuit's online hasn't had its plug pulled by EA yet. *knocks on wood*

As for what to buy this week, I don't even know. Kinda glad I didn't end up being able to get AC's map pack, that's $5 I can spend on one of these deals.

Worst of all this month (and next) are primed to have some great new XBLA releases, decisions, decisions.

Well, so much for saving my points for the Borderlands 2 season pass. I will have to get some more points for that.

I picked up Stacking instantly and I am going to demo Rayman 3, Simpsons Arcade, Rocket Riot, Warp and Bloodforge.

Assault Heroes
Assault Heroes 2
Rocket Riot

If Rayman 3 weren't Gold only I would've gotten it too.

Wow, Lots of stuff this week. Good stuff. Very glad to see the Sam and Max games go on sale as i've been patiently waiting on those. Gives me hope that the Wallace and Gromit stuff wil eventually get the sale treatment. (got the first bumblebee one when it went on sale and have been waiting for the rest)

Picked up Assault Heroes 2. I got the first one a long time ago and thought meh at first but if you play with a friend its a blast. Have to think on some of the others I don't have on 360 since I own them on other systems.

Good sale this week, been while.

Picked up Stacking, been waiting to get that one for 400 MSP, but Ill gladly take it for 300!
Going to get some demo's of the other 75+ metacritic games and see if they are worth picking up.
