Hopefully you will miss those too.

I paid full price for Gotham City Imposters at release and have no regrets whatsoever. It's an extremely fun game if you like team shooters. The only issue I have is that it's limited to 6 players on a team. It'd be great if they expanded that out to 8 so all of my friends could play instead of turning away anyone after the 6th player.

If anyone is on the fence about Gotham City Imposters I strongly recommend it. I was in the beta and enjoyed it so much that I picked it up on release date. I didn't get back into it about a month ago, though, and it is hella fun. Community is still very active and I never have any issues getting into a match. Out of all the matches I played I never have to deal with campers or any of the other bullcrap that I usually run into in other online shooters.

I hope that list is true because a sale on the game would most likely bring some more people to the game that I can shoot in the face a little easier than the high level guys :D

I would also pick up X-Men Arcade and maybe Shoot Many Robots.

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?


Pretty good game. It's worth it for $5. Kinda plays like a Katamari Damacy game. It's unique and you won't find much like it out there. I'd grab it before its too late.

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).

You both convinced me to snag Tornado Outbreak as I was in the same boat. The easy achievements make it a no-brainer too. Thanks for helping me spend an extra 400 msp.

I ended up getting Bolt, Tornado Outbreak and Sonic Cd this week. Good week

I can't buy games from the PC any more because Xbox.com says it doesn't recognize my computer (which I got 2 months ago). The verification emails it sends will ONLY go to the defunct, non-operational email address my Live account was created with. They don't send them to my actual working email that is also attached to the account for billing, etc. Anyone else having this problem?

The same happened to me yesterday. Luckily I have control of the email address though. It sends them to an email I setup for password recovery, not my main address which is what I'd prefer.

If you can get into https://account.live.com/Proofs/Manage you can change your email addresses there.

I have this problem as well, but I get codes sent through to my phone. It is annoying though, and it seems it's somewhat of a common problem recently when I tried googling it not too long ago.

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

Sigh. I did update my email through that link, but the confirmation email still only goes to the dead addy. It doesn't give the option of sending it to my phone either, even though my phone number has long been on the account.

Trine 2 and Shoot Many Robots for me this week. 1000 points seems fair for both.

Looking forward to the next sale. Finally made my purchases for this week. Went ahead and got Sonic Adventure DX upgrade, Sonic CD, Conan, Kameo, and Tornado Outbreak. Thought about Bolt, Open Season and Surf's Up, but unlike other kiddie games I've played, I'm not a huge fan of those movies so I imagine the game wouldn't keep my interest.

http://marketplace.x...15-d8024d530a02Microsoft is going to release some sort of Sales app, which shows up on the marketplace and on the console with a search even though you can't download it yet:
"Download the free Sales & Specials+ App and get great discounts on Xbox LIVE content. Try your luck at Scratch & Match to get a great offer every week or get great discounts on the Chain Offers that change every month."

Ugh, created by Wahoo (aka NinjaBee)? Should prove to be a confusing app with bad design choices & horrible art ... can not (not) wait. :(

Well, that's good I guess. I'll wait till July to make anymore new purchases. Only Bolt and Conan so far for me.

Hmm...I wonder why it was extended. Oh well, works out great for me, now I can definitely see what's gonna be on sale for the next 2 weeks, and if it's nothing I need, I'll buy a bunch of the GoD games.

Kefling games are awesome. Have no idea about what else they make.

Wahoo also made Fusion: Sentient, one of the very worst Xbox Live games on Windows Phone. Plus they steadfastly refuse to answer any and all emails regardless of which staff member you're emailing (tried 'em all). So despite enjoying Cloning Clyde and Keflings, I hate them.

Didn't know that Wahoo Studios is the parent company of Ninjabee. Wahoo does the contractual/port/app work and Ninjabee makes the original games. Outpost Kaloki X was the first Ninjabee game while Wahoo's done stuff like the XS Junior League games on PS1 and Family Game Night 4.

I don't see why that would say anything about the quality of the app, as Microsoft's responsible for making sure it's what they want. I'd hope that it's better supported than that crappy XBLA database app that MS pulled a month or so after they released it.

alright, bought Conan, Dark Void, and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

love, love, love Conan! Haven't even had a chance to touch the other two yet but had favorable impressions of the Dark Void demo. And I have a feeling that PoP will be very good if past history is a good thing (as well as good reviews).

with the extended date, maybe I'll check out the others.

Are the Marvel: Avengers Chronicles Pinball FX tables free, or is this just like the base game where you buy the tables one at a time? About to download...

Edit: May just be the trial, and not listed as such.

Each Pinball FX table has a free trial you can play for a minute or two before it stops keeping score and you have to buy it or quit.

You still play it through the Pinball FX 2 "hub."

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.


The ONLY downloadable shooter worth buying/playing in XBLA history is BF 1943. We'll see if the new version of Counterstrike changes that in late August.

ditto. Looks like castle crashers but with guns and robots


CC is miles better. Shoot Many Robots is ok, but extremely repetitive - every new level looks almost exactly like previous one, not enough varied enemies and bosses (from what i remember you fight two types bosses over and over again). :/

Actually the "Destination Arcade" app was an intern-designed app to see if they could automatically scrape the Marketplace from the client, to show users how many games could be had for 400msp, as well as other tests like rewarding users for discovering features (avatar pet) and a minor sale if you could find it (Boogie Bunnies for 500msp). It was never intended to replace the Marketplace, just see what could be done, and how people used the information it gave back.

And yes, I can definitely slam NinjaBee, since it took them a year to create "Dash of Destruction". A year!
