Does Paypal really take fees from donations to your site?

Anyways, I sent you a couple bucks, but if you really are getting hit with fees let me know, and next time I have a few bucks to send your way I'll just gift it to you.


Yes they take a fee for donations. They also made me promise not to ask for gifts or they can take away the donation capability. ;)

I appreciate the donation. I'll send you an email when I get the ad free functionality working to give you the ad free experience I promised.

Is Crysis a one day only sale or all week?

It should be all week, the dash does not say anything about a one day sale.

I hate to rehash the whole Crysis conversation that took place in this thread when the game first hit the marketplace, but as someone who didn't finish Crysis 2 because he lost interest, is the first game going to be worth my time and money? I also have a backlog of 4-5 other shooters (in first and third person) vying for my attention.

Is any of the FFXXIII-2DLC worth a damn? The Lightning and Zazh packs look like actual content. The Snow one sounds dumb, but maybe they are all dumb? Are the boss battles anything? Everything else just seems like insane visual junk.

is xbox.com being crazy for anyone else? I'm constantly getting signed out and told "don't try signing in for a while so we can try to fix a problem." I can be browsing the marketplace, messaging someone, or just trying to view my activity. Is it just me?

If you beat the bosses/characters, you can recruit them to your party like the other monsters....assuming you get lucky & get the gem after beating them. Though as for how well they are in aiding you in battle, I have no idea since by the time these came out, I had 100%'d the game on 360 (rebought it on PS3, might get some of the stuff on sale).

Crysis for ten. Sweet!!!!!!! Even though I plan on building a PC soon, I won't pass this deal up.

Edit: dang...just added 800 points and accidentally purchased on the site for the dollar amount....well I will use those points eventually.

Xbox.com has been sucking ass for at least 2 weeks for me. Randomly giving me the error you mentioned as well as one other one. And then not letting me queue up things (namely the RE6 demo) either.

Darn, I thought the FF sale was going to be on the actual GoD for some reason and was hoping it would be cheap.

Crysis is a tough call for me. I hate FPS's most of the time but Crysis 2 was the last one I actually finished. But going back to the first game after playing the sequel rarely pans out, especially when you don't even really enjoy the genre much.

I already have big surf from a few years ago, is there anyway that I'm eligible to continue to chain 2 and 3 and 4?


Follow the process as if you are purchasing the content again and it should say you have purchased this before and download it again and it should work....I think, worth a shot

If I was only going to get one of the FF XIII-2 dlc packs, which one is the best of the group?

My gut instinct is to buy the Lightning dlc pack since she's the star of the next game, unless folks here tell me differently?

It's a great shooter for $10. It's only available digitally via Games on Demand. I don't know if you can count on it going lower.

Mostly disappointing reviews for "Hell Yah" so far. 65% Metacritic score.

Game Informer loved it and Gamespot hated it. Not that that's too surprising, as Game Informer loves almost everything and Gamespot hates almost everything.

I'm surprised. I saw not one thing wrong with it, but I did only play for an hour or so. The unique minigames you get when you kill each of the 100 bosses are a cool and hilarious (not to mention bloody) touch. Kind of like mixing SOTN with Rhythm Heaven or Wario Ware.

I would say both of the Lightning themed DLCs are worthwhile. The weapons and costumes are down to your aesthetic preference. Like you said none of the DLC adds achievements or makes the game particularly easier or anything like that.

Of the Coliseum DLC, Lightning/Amodar is nice because you can beat it 1/2 or 2/3 of the way through the story and get the characters and actually use them. With most of the others you're going to need a fully-powered up party before you can even win the fight, so once you get the monster, there's nothing left to do with them.


Just the Lightning DLC? I was planning on getting all three of the main ones. Can anyone comment on the Snow and Sazh ones?

And is the Lightning/Amodar one really the only one you can play before the end of the game? I figured a couple would be like that but not 5 of 6.

I've been playing it for about two hours myself now. At first the game doesn't seem all that fun, but I have not stopped laughing at how literally insane and hilarious the "deaths" are in this game. The platforming and everything else grow on you, but the humor is spot-on and the mini-games you play and death animations are just beyond anything I've ever seen. Not to mention all of the references to other games, my favorite beings "ROASTED!".

I'm not all that far, granted, so it might get old, but I'm rather enjoying it so-far. The "Island" is also a rather cool concept. Every enemy you kill goes there and basically turns it in to a Kefling-like game.

Definitely going to pick up a ton of Dance Central DLC. Should hold me off nicely until DC3 drops.

oh cool so the nlf was a typo and it was nfl. i assume they will be adding more to each team because right now its only a jersey and football moves. some teams only got football moves and some teams only show up in the lifestyle section by themselves. wish you could change the numbers on the jerseys. they look so dumb with just the number 1

I bought the Snow one because I only had 170MSP and didn't want to bother buying more. From what I've heard the Lightning one is the best, the Snow one is okay and the Sazh one is pretty crap. I've heard the Sazh one take less than an hour and isn't even very good.

I'd be interested in getting the outfits perhaps if they were a bit cheaper, but it's not worth the cost for something that's only aesthetic and adds nothing really to the game.

Awww shoot, the OP exceeded 100,000 chars due to the Harmonix / FF13-X2 sales!

The section that was the old deals & markdowns is pasted here for safe keeping, and cleared from the OP ...

I trust Gamespot way more than I trust Gameinformer but if I had to rely on just both I'd just quit gaming entirely.

That's bullshit. Gamespot will love anything you tell them to if you buy enough ad space. They'll even fire their own staff if someone thinks otherwise. How is that not love?!
