I cannot recommend the game either. Even if you like the gameplay, there are several issues with the game that make it frustrating. When I played the week of release, when the most players were likely to be around, matchmaking took a really long time. Finding and getting into a match took at least as long as the match itself. That's no fun. The game also didn't seem to add players midmatch. So when you're playing 3 on 3 and one guy quits because he doesn't like the map selection, and then another guy leaves because he doesn't want to play outmatched, you're left with three guys running around the map hunting one guy on the other team.



I co-sign all those issues. You are right that no one can be replaced mid-match. Also it didn't even support 4 v 4 at lanch. 3 v 3 was the max. No idea if they patched that, but i imagine the community is only smaller now regardless. Not a good game.

according to neogaf, the following titles will be on sale....

Trine 2 - 600msp
X-men arcade - 400msp off
shoot more robots - 400msp off
Worms armageddon - 400msp off
Gotham imposters - 400msp off
Nexuis 600msp off


Pretty good sales if true. I have everything except the 2 MP shooters naturally, but at least there will be some new content for people to pick up.

Also, that deals app sounds pretty interesting...

Yawn...

You'd think that they would put the Magic 2012 DLC on sale with last week's release of Magic 2013 and all...

Not much peaking my interest on Live lately. Guess I'll be waiting a wee bit longer. If Dawnguard makes it out, I may bite on that tomorrow.

If that sale prediction is true I'll need to buy some points. Definitely want Shoot Many Robots, and will probably also get Trine 2.

From this current sale I bought Dark Void (good fun in smaller doses), Blazing Angels (also looks to be fun in small doses), and I'll probably cash in a 400msp Bing Rewards code to get Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands.
I want to be your sledge hammer.

Oh, but of course. I miss out on the deal. Oh well, knowing Microsoft, they'll repeat the deal at least two more times before Christmas.

That's a good list if true. First time discounts always make me happy, even if they are for games I won't buy or the discount is not good enough. I'll buy Trine 2 for 400msp on impulse just to have it on 360 since I already got it for PS3 (I think it was a PS+ freebie?), Gotham City Imposters' discount isn't good enough-600 is my max buyout, and Nexius holds no interest to me (would buy if they put it on some crazy Black Friday-eque sale for 200msp or less). Already own Worms and X-Men. Will have to check out Shoot Many Robots. Heard it was mediocre but I have trouble passing on anything I'm remotely interested in for 400msp.

Its Microsoft man, not sony. They denied Strangers Wrath just cause it was already an xbox game. I would bet a billion dollars that microsoft would never do the type of sale that you keep asking for.

Does anyone have any further opinions about the following games since it's crunch time:
Surf's UP!
Bolt
Open Season

Looking at ebay/bb/gs, I think I can get Tornado Outbreak, Meet the Robinsons and a couple others fairly cheap if I need something else for the kids.

I've grabbed Sonic CD, Blazing Angels and Conan, still considering some others but trying to hold off, I know I won't play anything else I end up buying... maybe Dark Void though.

DO NOT BUY NEXUIS

bad twitch shooter that was released dring the house party promotion. I only got it because it was effectively free since i was going to buy the other 3 games. And i still felt ripped off .


I cannot recommend the game either. Even if you like the gameplay, there are several issues with the game that make it frustrating. When I played the week of release, when the most players were likely to be around, matchmaking took a really long time. Finding and getting into a match took at least as long as the match itself. That's no fun. The game also didn't seem to add players midmatch. So when you're playing 3 on 3 and one guy quits because he doesn't like the map selection, and then another guy leaves because he doesn't want to play outmatched, you're left with three guys running around the map hunting one guy on the other team.


I co-sign all those issues. You are right that no one can be replaced mid-match. Also it didn't even support 4 v 4 at lanch. 3 v 3 was the max. No idea if they patched that, but i imagine the community is only smaller now regardless. Not a good game.

Before I could even find the game correctly spelled on meta critic it seems the CAG's have spoken. Thanks everyone. Not that big a solely multiplayer based gamer, but having all these opinions definitely means for me to stay the hell back.

I would've grabbed it if it was the other PoP, as I never finished that one. I owned and beat this newer one that's included in the sale. I agree though, it's an enjoyable game and definitely worth the $5. I'd say it's probably the best game on the list and the only must buy outta all of them.

Trying to decide whether to pull the trigger on Tornado Outbreak. I was pretty interested after seeing that Forgotten Video Games video a few pages back, but with no demo to try & no raves on this game in this forum, I may pass.

Anybody have a strong opinion on Tornado Outbreak, good or bad?

I also wonder this. although I need points, only have $1 of points right now and gotta be hopeful that someone trades some points with me for my stuff. totally in for Worms and GCI if I get $15 though

I've been playing Tornado Outbreak the past couple days on and off and it's a decent little title. If you enjoy any of the Katamari games, you'll probably like this as well. While they are different, they're quite similar in the sense that you suck things up and get better. I wouldn't pay $20 for it, but for $5, it is a good pick up and play title for an hour here or there. The later levels do get a little frustrating because it feels like you don't quite have enough time to meet the requirements to pass, but it's a small complaint. Plus, if you like achievements, most of them can be gotten with little effort. I'm 3 away myself from 1k, although 2 of them could be a bit of a pain (not impossible, just need a little perseverance).

As for myself, I'm debating on Blazing Angels. I would debate on Facebreaker as it appears to be a poor man's Ready 2 Rumble Boxing, but the online achievements being impossible to get now makes me want to not get it.

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