It really is dumb they don't put a sale on games that will be delisted soon. Or put a sale on games that are 5+ years old I'm still waiting on a sale for tenchu shadow assault


Having a sale on soon to be delisted games would be nice. From looking at that list I'm glad I had already picked up TMNT: Reshelled.

I now have a massive backlog of XBLA titles I need to play through. Apparently I own Lucidity and Monkey Island but I don't remember buying them.

I know this isn't the trade thread, but I just got The Maw and R-Type from the raptr deal and I'd be willing to trade them, if anyone here is interested shoot me a pm.

Wow, "Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader" got delisted. I would have grabbed that if it ever went on sale. No big loss though.

Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's is gone too.


Why in the hell was Yugioh delisted? That game was fairly popular and I'm sure sold well. It's not a licensing issue like Turtles b/c Konami owns the Yugioh IP.

Grabbed Trenched... I mean Iron Brigade.

Good stuff for $7.50 before point discounts. Anyone vouch for the DLC being good / worthy?

The 21st is the end date for the Microsoft studios sale. Good enough time to demo some games to see if you like them. Unsure if I should get Castle Crashers, I know it has great reviews and such but not sure If I like it enough. Still undecided if I should get the anniversary map pack also...decisions, decisions...


Castle Crashers is really fun, easily worth $7.50. If you like beat-em-ups at all you should get it.

And the Anniversary pack is worth getting, even though armor abilities kinda break the maps (which is only a problem if you et title update variant, so not often) and power weapon locations aren't very good. But the maps are still good and the best Reach has to offer. Also, the anniversary playlists are filled with bad kids usually so playing on it is fun.

FINALLY got the Raptr promo to work. Tried it on three computers and my phone but Xbox wouldn't accept my credit card and kept saying to try later, I also called tech support twice and they said they saw no problems with the card. On a gamble I entered in the free month of XBL I received from the M&Ms promo and sure enough two seconds later I received the codes for the free games. So if anyone is leery about entering there CC info or if you are having problems like I was then you can enter one of those codes and it still counts.


Yep this is exactly what I did to get mine. Instead of clicking on the 0.00 and having to enter CC info, I clicked on the redeem code underneath used that code from the M&Ms promo.

The other thing is...I'd like to get some Indie Games Have 3 in my mind but would round it up to 5 to make it to 400 MSP (all 80 MSP) but doesn't know what to get beside Breath of Death VII, Cthulu saves the World and DLC Quest...

Those were my first 3 indy games as well. Cthulu being my favorite. If I may suggest to round out the five, one of the Soulcaster Games I picked up the second one and enjoyed it plan on getting the first one as soon as I have enough points in my extra rewards account. And Dead Pixels, I had a lot more fun with this one then what I was expecting.

Off topic question but since some were talking about delisted titles, has anyone every had trouble re-downloading something off your purchase history that has been delisted?

I ask because remember while back when they were giving out Ghostbusters: SOS for taiwan accounts. I picked it up and downloaded to my last Xbox. Since I've gotten a new one and been transferring everything over from my different accounts, but I can't add this one title to my queue from my purchase history because it's no longer listed on the taiwan marketplace. I've tried to do it through both my Xbox and Xbox.com and it's a no go. I can download everything else from that purchase history ok (PvZ, Daggerdale, some themes) and it lets me play the full game under that profile, just won't let me re-download it so I can transfer the license to a new console.

nope, never had a problem. off the top of my head I redownloaded one of the TMNT games (Reshelled?) awhile back and wasn't a problem, maybe it works different for games not in the US marketplace or something like that?

Yeah, also Ion Assault is a game I had been wanting to get but never did and now regret I didn't get it. This sucks, oh well.


I bought Ion Assault two years ago. Nice game. Really curious why the hell got delisted? Maybe because of the poor sales? :S

In the other hand i miss Root Beer Tapper, Smash TV and few others. :'(

Talking about delisted games, TMNT 1989 is still available on EU marketplaces - http://marketplace.x...15-d80258410870

Not sure if it was mentioned, but two of those Sega Classics Collections are coming to XBLA on the 23rd, Alex Kidd & Wonder Boy, both for 800 MSP. The other two, Golden Axe & Streets of Rage, will hit the week after, the 30th.

I'm very tempted to get them, but since I know Sega likes to do so many sales & deals, I'm probably going to wait for them to be 1/2 off.

I'm confused, is Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy in one collection? Or are they 2 different collections?

And if they are 2, which games are in which collection?

EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out.

Is Wonder Boy cool? I've never really heard of it?

Apparently there was an easier way to claim the rewards without entering C.C. information

Heh. So looks like the only conditions that Raptr Rewards checks is that initially you have a Silver XBL account linked to the tracker and then later you have a Gold XBL account linked. Doesn't seem to matter how your membership status was upgraded or even if they're the same gamertag.

Couldn't help noticing your gamerscore. If unobtainable achievements are a dealbreaker for you, be aware that the Single-player Pack contains one (Clock Watching - 20g).

So 127,000 is the magic number for being noticed now? [looks at his score] Hmmm...

Ah, I do like getting achievements but in reality I really just play a lot of games and don't have that many maxed, so I'll end up getting it since I loved Worms 3D on the Xbox. Thanks for the heads up though, that is still kind of a bummer :/

I usually see people pointing out people with over 100,000 or such, but it's all good. I just enjoy playing my 360 and it would appear that you do as well :P

3 Pack for the collections? And the Alex Kidd one has Super Hang On? I know Sega always has sales and these would probably get one as well at some point, but I'll make an exception for Super Hang On.

I stream on Twitch. At least two times a week. http://www.twitch.tv/jstryker416

The first two packs seem nice, but I can't understand why Sega is bothering with the second two. Golden Axe I-III and Streets of Rage 1-3 are already on the Ultimate Genesis collection.

It was cool for it's time. I used to play Monster Land on my Amiga 20 years ago and it was a lot of fun. I can't imagine the game style holding up too well these days, but I am grabbing it out of nostalgia.

To get money from achievement whores.
BTW, Golden Axe 1 in this collection is the arcade version not the genesis one.

Too bad that day was back in 1989. I put so much money into that game back then in the arcades. :)

Yeah, Golden Axe hasn't aged very well, but it's not bad, especially the third game. Now Revenge of Shinobi? That shit has aged like fine wine.

Yeah, you get a lot of new weapons and an increased level cap. The new levels are very difficult though, especially in solo play.

I had fun with the first couple levels of Fable Heroes, though the combat is pretty generic. (Walk, press X, walk, press X...)

I don't think it's worth $10, but if it shows up on DotW I'd say grab it.
