If anyone knows of any other really cheap games with achievements, please post them and hopefully we'll get a list going. Or if a list has already been posted, please link me to it. I've got some achievin' to do to get my GS up. :D


Just go there http://en.wikipedia....ve_Arcade_games and click the arrows @ the price in Microsoft Points to sort the list.

According to this list, 1 more game is listed for 240 MSP, Sonic & Knuckles.

Unrelated to just about everything ever posted in this thread, but I never realized The UnderGarden was only 240 MSP and had achievements. And this is the regular price for it. If anyone knows of any other really cheap games with achievements, please post them and hopefully we'll get a list going. Or if a list has already been posted, please link me to it.

By the way, the last time I posted I asked what I should get for 400MSP. I ended up with Raskulls. The multiplayer aspect really sold me on it. :D


I found UnderGarden painfully uninteresting.

Raskulls however is fantastic, great choice.

I just spent an hour dragging a boat up a mountain for a trophy. What have I become...

 

Now just play a really piece of shit game and then complain about it until (and well after) you get the plat.

If it's strictly Gamerscore you're after, you're probably better off scouring the used bins at your local Gamestop. You can easily find games for $2.99 (240 MSP) that will boost your score up to five times as much as the average XBLA game.

Btw tyler I really am digging bloodforge. I love using his huge sword and just roaming the snow plain looking for some shit to destroy.


Glad to hear it. The sword is what I used the most as well, just combine with the bow and arrow to rack up the combos.

Glad to hear you liked Raskulls, it's a really cool game.

Windows Phones are great for achievement hunting, a good amount of games for $0.99 and $2.99 with 200 gamerscore.

I'm regretting not picking up Raskulls actually. I should've known multiplayer would be fun considering how much fun I had in singleplayer.

It's a Halfbrick game, even if I wasn't friends with them I'd still buy everything they make because they make fun stuff. Jetpack Joyride steals hours from my life weekly.

Also remember that Joe Danger 2 will be releasing this Friday

Was tony hawk purchased using a code by chance?

Just do a print screen of it and post it over there. If you legitimately did buy it from the marketplace, and not redeem it as a code or something, then I don't see how they could deny you.

And at least you're getting support from them...I haven't heard from them in almost a week.

Nice find on free Joe Danger 2 from raptr. I own 3 of the eligible games and am not quite experienced on any of them. I will rectify that tonight. Any word on when this will go live? Hopefully not midnightish since I have to work.

Sweet! I'm already set but when does it actually go live? I'll be up at 5 EST time for work so hopefully by then, but I can access the site at work as needed.

Last couple haven't gone live until 10-11am MST. I'm just gonna start checking around 7am when I wake up, I really don't think it will be live before then.

Ugh, of course, that would be lunch time for me. Hopefully they don't go super fast. The benefit is that it is also school hours.

The only one I remember going SUPER fast was the Minecraft codes. The Maw and R-Type for Silver members lasted over a week if I recall.

So i've been doing the scratch off on the sales and special app like everyday and never expecting to win. Was surprised to see that I won today doing it and got the May car pack for Forza 4 free. Nice considering I do play that game.

I always thought no one won that thing, but I guess there are winners lol

Off topic-ish: If you were debating Sam and Max during last week's sale and didn't bite on it, the Sam & Max Complete Pack is on sale on Steam for $15. And it includes Season 3 that never came out on Xbox.

Telltale should really put out an 'Adventure collection' retail disc on Xbox with both Sam and Maxes plus Wallace and Gromit. I'd say throw Walking Dead on there, but it really deserves its own disc (or would at least sell that way).

They said that The Walking Dead is getting a retail release after all 5 episodes were released. I'd definitely buy and 'Adventure Collection' for about $20 though.

Thanks guys. I should've done a search before mentioning it. But yeah, the older Telltale games could use a disc too. :)

I'd much rather have a disk than buying everything through Xbox Live, but isn't $30 for all five episodes $5 more expensive than getting all the episodes separately?

yup it's $5 more than buying it all individually on XBLA. I'd almost prefer the disc version because it's easy to play and get all the achievements then you could get rid of it and get some of your money back. The episodes I have downloaded have no trade in value obviously.

That's to entice people not to wait for the disc. Plus physical media adds to the cost of distribution and the b&m retail gets a cut too.

Anyone planning to wait for The Walking Dead on disc, make sure to install it! The XBLA version has severe frame rate problems, it sometimes chugs to a near standstill, and that's with all the assets on the HDD. I shudder to think how it would perform from the optical drive. Great game aside from that though. And given the nature of the game the frame rate problems don't really hamper gameplay, only the presentation.

Also, retail discs tend to drop in price rather quickly. Wait a month or so and you'll probably see it for $19.99 all over the place.

Happy to hear a Walking Dead disc is coming out. And yes, it's more likely to drop in price than the games being discounted one by one.

Looking forward to grabbing it for 20 bucks sometime this holiday after the second season
