I bought Swarm and Quarrel and both of them are extremely fun im mostly enjoying Quarrel but Swarm is really good too so it was well worth 400Msp for both.

Iron Brigade's Rise of the Martian Bear is a must-own if you have Iron Brigade. I honestly wouldn't recommend buying Iron Brigade at all if you're not getting the DLC too. Martian Bear adds an epilogue story, but more importantly, 10 more experience levels to progress through, several new campaign levels, and lots of new equipment. Oh, and new Achievements.

Iron Brigade actually does have a loyal community and it shouldn't take more than 5 or 10 minutes to find a group when playing during peak hours. You have to remember that games go on for longer than in many titles, so a little patience helps. Anyway, if you're stuck at level 10 or below and can't play the new missions, you'll have a harder time finding a group. Go all in and you'll be happily unrestricted.

Also, the Martian missions aren't that tough as long as your group is decent. A little building up in survival is actually important in this game, and not some optional thing you should ignore. Survival gives you the EXP and credits you need, plus exclusive equipment, some of which is fantastic. Anyway, build up properly and your team won't have much trouble with Mars at all.

Did I mention that Iron Brigade is a game you play cooperatively with friends/other players, and not very much by yourself? Yeah.

Just played through the Toy Soldiers Invasion! DLC tonight. Took me about 2 hours on Normal difficulty to get through the 3 campaign levels and brought back a lot of awesome memories of the game. It's probably my favorite of the 4 DLCs, though it does have one glitchy achievement "Rocketman" which made me replay 2 full levels, which sucked.

Okay fine, I'll buy it but are you going to help me with the co-op?

That would be great, dude. I'm always down for Iron Brigade as it's one of my favorite games and I still need a few Achievements. Text me and we'll set it up.

I'm in for some Iron Brigade action as well. I've had it since last sale but not very far in.

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.

Lol, oh god. This is what I was afraid of. I'm all for letting us get off-topic but remaining in the realm of XBLM stuff, but this cannot be a "let's be friends and play these games on XBL" thread because I know people are gonna have a problem with it, and attribute it to the general off-topicness of this thread. If I thought that was okay in here, you'd have seen a ton of posts to that effect by now, lol.

So I think the rule should be, if you have something OT and constructive to say and just kinda add a little note like that at the bottom (no need for spoiler tags), that's fine. But a post in here should not be primarily to plan such things.

Is everyone cool with that?

I just don't want to see a whole page of posts just saying "Oh add me on Iron Brigade, gamertag is Blahblahblah". I think that'd make everyone happy.

OT: I was right about Catherine being the GoD of the week. Does anyone know if it's eligible for the promo?

Also, gonna remove last week's sales now that they're no good. And officially update the Recently Reduced with what I saw on my dashboard last night. Did anyone else notice that Sonic Adventure is in the September AND October tabs? Guess October needed another "price drop" for the page.

Tangent: Part of the Double Fine sale, Brutal Legend for 360 is $10 from the Double Fine site (unsure of shipping and such) and the SIGNED edition for 360 is $20. I assume it just is signed with no other bonus. Also, sad that Psychonauts is only on sale on Steam. :(

Off-topic: Am also up for Iron Brigade action and such, though I probably need to level up some more. Gamertag's to the left. Will most likely not be on tonight, letting my dad enjoy the birthday copy of Dishonored I gave him.

From x360a


First up, bonkers over-the-top shooter Serious Sam 3: BFE (released last year on PC) hits XBLA next Wednesday, on the 17th October. As previously revealed the game will cost 1200 MSP, plus a further 1200 MSP if you want the multiplayer suite and Jewel in the Nile expansion.

Meanwhile, the fondly-remembered Megadrive classic ToeJam & Earl now has an official XBLA release date. It’ll funk its way to Xbox Live on November 7th. MCV is reporting that you will be able to pick up a bundle of the game and its sequel, Panic on Funkotron, for 800 MSP.

Agreed. I've never understood why people get so upset over off-topic posts. Unless they're taking up several pages and are comprised of nothing but spam, it only takes a few seconds at most to scroll past them.

Yeah, I don't have any problem with it. I don't have any desire to play it online and don't even particularly care for the game, so if I see someone mention it I just skip over their post.

Okay, fine. Let me rephrase my request, which re-reading it, I can see how you can think that such posts bother me.

Do I PERSONALLY mind? No, I'd be right there with you. What I was trying to say was that if I thought it was okay for this topic to become something like that, I would have been making posts like that already (since I've been tempted to many times).

Can I see people making complaints about it? Yes. Only a few pages back some people were saying how unhappy they were with how off-topic this topic gets already (and how many pages there are because of it), and as I said, I think the current level of off-topicness is okay, and I don't see there being legitimate grounds for any intervention.

I was just trying to suggest a rule that would avoid a future problem, and limit any "technical" rule-breaking. And also, myself and the other volunteers who maintain this thread weekly want this thread to inform and be as helpful to as many people as possible.

And let's face it, there are several people on this site who are sticklers when it comes to forum rules, particularly in the "deals" section. *cough* Gargus *cough*

This thread is so big and constantly maintained that we tend to get some leniency when it comes to off-deal topic discussion, but if the scenario I am afraid of starts coming up, I can absolutely see people complaining which may ultimately result in this thread's discussion being moderated, etc. Which is you know, bad.

Does that make sense?

Edit: Please tell me someone else gets that I'm just trying to be accomodating to those opposed to all this off-topic discussion. And I'm not complaining, I'm clarifying and explaining a legitimate opinion. Huge difference, imo. I'm not a thread policeman, damnit. It was just a suggestion, I was asking for feedback to a middle-of-the-road approach meant to cut down on post count, which is something that has already been complained about in here.

I'm not sure why, but such an accusation really frustrates me. Was I not one of the first people a number of pages back to offer up my GT for FX2? I'm obviously in favour of such a thing, but am trying to think about what's best for everyone.

After re-reading this post a million different times, I think this is the best it's gonna look.

Seeing people get off topic and discuss setting up some online groups makes me interested to buy that game/DLC. So I thank you OT posters!

Some good sales this week. I need to take a break from Pokemon White 2 (message me for FC) to try sone demoes.

Also, I highly suggest Costume Quest and its DLC. It's a great game to get you in the Halloween spirit plus some nice avatar items.

I also am a huge fan of the off topic posting in this thread, it's why I come here. In fact, there are about a half dozen people that post here on my friends list from the last time Iron Brigade and its DLC went on sale.

We added each other in the same fashion many here are doing now and I don't regret it one bit. The Martian Bear DLC (and the game) really IS a whole lot more fun and accessible with teamwork and cooperative play.

Even though I finished off Iron Brigade and the achievements, I would offer to play with anyone but I'm waiting for Microsoft to make me an offer I can't refuse to re-up my gold account that expired last Saturday.

Expensive week for me. So far I've picked up Iron Brigade + DLC, World of Keflings, Toy Soldiers, and Splatters. Debating on the DLC for Stacking and Toy Soldiers and I'll also most likely pick up Quarrel, Swarm, and Mercury HG as well.

Do you guys think the Dead Island DLC is worth it?

I can trade in my vanilla copy for $16 at GS and I can buy the GOTY copy for $20 at Best Buy. Is the DLC worth $4?

(GOTY is $20 with @gamer coupon at BB. The approximate $16 GS TIV is for pure unlocked members).


No. The arena mode is ok for XP grinding and the grinder bat is a decent beginning weapon, but the Ryder White DLC is shit.

FYI everything but the Ryder White DLC was in the GS-exclusive pre-order special edition (DLC voucher code) of the game if you can find a copy w/code at your local store (it has a red cover and says Dead Island Special Edition on it.)

Anyone convince me on World of Keflings? I don't own, nor have I played, the original not that I expect that matters much but the screens and desc didn't necessarily hook me. Gonna try the trial in a bit.

Just try the demo. The game is awesome, but it's a little bit different. Make sure to play through the whole trial and see if you start finding the gameplay addictive. If you don't, the game might not be for you.

For what it's worth, I hated the Keflings demo the first time I played it, but loved it the 2nd time.

Its a fantastic game. You'll easily get $5 worth of fun from it. It's a great way to you unwind after playing more intense games. You just play at your own pace and enjoy. I know a bunch of people who were sure they weren't going to like it, but ended up loving the game.

No. This thread is not the usual "post a deal" thread.
It's about any discussions related to Xbox Live games.

Check the first post for the deals and then move on.
