Anyone have opinions on the Orcs Must Die? Does it get better than the first couple levels in the demo?

Worthy? 2 sorta Tower Defense games in a week would be nice to grab on sale.

I enjoyed the XBLA trial of Orcs Must Die! immediately, so if you didn't like it already, maybe it's not for you. But I ended up picking it up on Steam, and I was surprised to find that I enjoyed it even more using keyboard & mouse.

If you're on the fence, get the better version for $2.50 in next month's Steam sale instead. ;) ("41 hours played" is a dead giveaway of my opinion on the game ;))

Lots of spawn points and traps that really aren't all that powerful, plus a huge variation in enemy types makes it feel like it would play way better in co-op. However, it's single player only and can get very frustrating at times. I had to go down to the wussily easy setting on 2 or 3 levels, just so I could beat them and move on.

Still, I think it's probably worth 600msp. Just not anymore than that. I had a lot more fun with the demo than I did with the actual game.

How are so many people getting codes for Dragon Lair?

To appreciate Dragon's Lair, you had to be young when the game came out in 1983. It was graphics like nobody had ever seen before. It was the first arcade game to cost 2 quarters and the machine had such long lines you couldn't even see the screen or play if you wanted to.

My problem was this hoarder took all of them including my one copy as I helped her.

^that would explain it I guess, wasn't even born. Most popular game in arcades (that I can remember) was MvC2. I mostly played games that gave tickets. Had to win worthless plastic junk.

Iron Brigade, but only if you play it on co-op (it's much better that way). Otherwise go with Orcs. ;)

This.


I love the animation and art in the DL games, that's pretty much the reason I wanna play them until I can grab dvd copies again.

Picked up Iron Brigade + the DLC. Need some CAGs to play with!

I'm almost tempted on Happy Action Theater too but I think my younger sisters are old enough now where they'd just think it's stupid, lol.

no its happening. But I believe its getting released later. No point for sega to unleash everything at once.

Picked up the R-Type and Maw codes from Raptr. Already dowloaded The Maw, so if anyone legitimately needs one, PM.

EDIT: GONE

PSN is getting the 3 Alex Kidd bundle games on Tuesday. I wonder why they wouldn't release them at the same time on XBLA.

Fusion Genesis seems like a decent game, but all the reading and mining make it feel like work. Will probably give it another shot before completely dismissing it though.

Already own (and thoroughly enjoy) Castle Crashers and Trials HD, but I'll get the Big Thrills expansion this time. Lots more demos to try...not going to bother with Worms though, despite how much I enjoyed the original.
I want to be your sledge hammer.

Picked up Tren... er, Iron Brigade. Patience pays off, woot! I still had some points left so I got the DLC for it; hoping it's good. After the long drought of good deals, I can safely say that I love the current sales.

I even picked up RAAM's Shadow just for the heck of it. Now, I just have to convince my friends to start playing GoW3 again...

Also, I know it may sound redundant considering it's already been explained, but since I don't want to waste my time if all the codes are already gone, does anybody have an extra R-Type Dimensions code they'd be willing to trade? If so, PM me :)

Requires a Silver account and CC info, but pretty easy to do once you have that.

Anyone going for the Weekend Cheeve Challenge this week? It's a tough one, I'm playing The Splatters a little bit to see if I think I can get the 3 from that one. If I can, I may spring for Dragon's Lair.

^I'm gonna try, but I have no interest in South Park. If I can get a code cheap then I will participate ;). I already knocked out Dragon's Lair cheeves. They were fun, and not super hard or anything. Hardest one was scoring the max points. Just remember to save often.

If anyone wants a 1 month XBL code or a little paypal gift for South Park... PM me.

I don't need The Maw, in case anyone has a spare code for South Park, Minecraft, or...just PM me an offer or something.
