Alright I got Alien Hominid HD! Now if only I could use my remaining points to buy that $2 for 2 Months of Gold thing.

Is there a reason why we can't use Microsoft Points as money towards purchasing Gold Membership? I'll check the OP and google soon...

Edit: Found nothing in the OP or google except that Microsoft is phasing out points at the end of the year. Also, just joined Xbox rewards.

Last I heard, that was a rumor. Is that confirmed?

Ugh, not the point phasing out rumor again. The ONLY source on that rumor was from a mobile game website and no one else has reported or brought it up since and this was a few months back.

Still a rumor, but a lot of people really believe it.

between changing point cards and updating xbox.com as well as the marketplace seems like a lot of effort for no gain I dont understand why they would do so

Another sad week, From Dust for 800 Points and that it?

Miss MS had larger weekly sales, especially for OLD shiT thats been out from years? Sony does much better job (bigger selection) with it's weekly sales. Miss a sale, don't worry Sony usually has them back within 1/2 years time--with MS it's miss it and you'll never see it again it :(.

I have 8000+ MS points and I'm waiting for the same freaking DLC packs to go on sale for what seems like forever.

why don't you spend the points on what you want play and enjoy some gaming rather than sit on the points and get angry each week?

I've never understood peoples logic when it comes to these like this. If you really want it, buy it and don't complain..do something about it. People get points free via Bing so to some extent, it's not really costing you much except time. Just let the points pile up if you want, only person losing out is you. Keep dreaming for that 'sale', likely chance of it happening is slim.

I'd love to sit on my points, but at this point over 4k of them are expiring in just a few weeks and these sales aren't doing me any favors.
It's looking like I'll have to engage in a non-sale shopping spree. It's uncharacteristic for me, but it's gotta be done at this rate.

Out of curiosity, where did you get the points that are expiring?

Checked a few pages back and only saw people mentioning the Resident 6 package, but not detailing it. So here's some more solid info about the Resident Evil Archives Collection which is coming out October 2 for $89.99

RESIDENT EVIL 6 ARCHIVES (360)
Resident Evil 6
Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition
Resident Evil 4 HD
Resident Evil Code: Veronica X HD
Resident Evil Degeneration (DVD film)


Code Veronica, RE4 & RE5 will be download codes with it's respective dlc. GREAT deal if you haven't bought anything Resident Evil related(like me).

If you planned on getting RE6 day one, then you're getting RE5 with all it's dlc, RE4, RE:CV and the dvd for ONLY $20 extra. That's pretty awesome when you consider the GoD versions of RE4 and CV are $20 apiece. Day One purchase for me!!!

Games wise only RE6 is physical disc, all the other games are digital; even RE5.

The DVD I am not sure about

Dang, why must the RE 6 special edition come with Degeneration on DVD instead of Blu-Ray? Still, that's definitely a good deal if you lack any of the games.

Nice. I'm thinking my avatar would look real good in a Joker costume.

It was my favorite game of Summer of Arcade (over Bastion, ITSP, and Toy Soldiers: CW). I went in not expecting much, and to me it ended up being TONS of fun. There are about 12 levels and then about 40 challenges. I only went through about half the challenges, they were okay but nothing special. But the 12 campaign levels were pretty enjoyable.

It's not overly challenging at all, which was fine by me (except for 1 level I had to use a guide for). It was just fun to work kind of slowly, watch the game world change, and think what you wanted your next move to be.

"buy it and don't complain..do something about it" Depends on the content, some DLC packs (looking at COD) are simply overpriced to begin with ($15 for 4 maps ect) so I refuses to buy them unless they are marked down to where I think they should have been initally.

Just a list of stuff that I refuse to buy unless on sale:
Day 1 DLC
Map Packs
Character Packs ($5 per character?)

Same way with buying games, there's an price/hour ratio that I apply :).

I'm actually very tempted to get either the Mass Effect or ACII premium themes, but I can't find a preview of what they look like on the newest dashboard.

You're kidding right? MS has had repeat sales before. I think you're over-exaggerating, this is the first week in awhile that MS has only one thing on sale. So please chill out and maybe use some of those points to buy something while you wait for your DLC packs to go on sale.

Bought Red Dead Redemption just so I could have it downloaded to my 360. I'm starting to do this more and more and I have to say, it's a really awesome feature. I can switch from RDR to Mass Effect without having to get up! (which makes me sound really lazy, lol)

I also gave up a while ago and I think I bought it during one of those 5% months not too long ago. The game itself is ok, but (and maybe it's just me), but it feels like the game has no soul. I can watch vids of the original and think (hey, I remember that level or song), but the new game, it just lacks "it".

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

Tried to download the DJ Hero DLC but keep getting a message that there's a glitch in the system. Anyone else having the same issue?

EDIT: Went back and tried again and it worked fine for the Jay Z / Eminem pack. Still having difficulty with the Linkin Park one..
