It's unlikely that they'll fix matchmaking. Since that was the main issue with the beta itself.

How is the community for Hybrid? And are the achievements impossibly hard? i wasn't expecting it to just be 400.

Not as much hard as it is time consuming. You have to Prestige 5 times!!
Which just seems to be a ploy to make you pay for the XP boosters

Dust and Deadlight are mine. Time to wait for Walking Dead sale.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I'll be getting Dust when I get home. Tried the demo and didn't expect it to be as great as it was.

Deadlight is a maybe, but those song references in the achievements may be enough to sway me.

Cool, picked up Deadlight and now I am done with these sales aside from the free Walking Dead Episode.

I'll have to pop in Hybrid to check on the community, I picked it up during SoA and thought it was a fun game worth my 15 bucks (10 bucks would have been my recommended price for others). The matchmaking didn't bother me that much, it was the completely unbalanced factions which defeated the whole point of having the meta war. The actual combat is very fun and involves more strategy than your typical shooter.

Definitely buying Dust. Deadlight would have been an instabuy had it been 400, but I'll have to try the demo now. Hybrid at 400 is a nice surprise, but I already have plenty of shooters to play.

400 MSP for Hybrid? Sure, impulse buy. Dust was part of the plan already, I wanted it badly enough. As for Deadlight, it looks cool and all but I believe I'll hold out for the next go-round.

Dust trailer looks alright, but deadlight looks amazing. however, i'm not really a platformer fan. If only deadlight have co-op, I'll instant buy!

I think we're on the same page here. What if we used the CAG groups to do something like this:

CAG Card and Board Group

Just a quick little mockup of a group that's pretty niched and specific (so it'd appeal to that type of gamer and promote a little community.) It could include discussions for planning game nights, achievement hunting, maybe strategy, etc.

I know it's off topic and the sales are about to pick up again. However, if anybody's interested in fleshing this out, please PM me. Maybe we can work out a format that would be appealing to this forum and then add a few links for these groups to the 1st or 2nd post of this forum to build it.


I'd be interested in joining this group. A lot of my XBLA games aren't multiplayer (many of them should be) but it'd be nice having people to play with from CAG.

I'd be interesting in doing... something... with some community element involving XBL. ??? I rarely game on XBL for fear of idiots, but I have plenty of multiplayer cheevos across who knows how many games that I'd like to scrape up. I'm wanting to hit that 25K gamerscore before much more time has elapsed. 2% back would've been nice for this month...

I'm definately interested in joining groups. It would be nice to hunt achievements and play online with my older backlog games. I've been a member of x360a.com for a while and they've been really helpful with stuff like that.

Thanks for keeping this thread bumped guys. I almost forgot about this sale. I picked up Tony Hawk and Dust, and I'll be picking up all the episodes of The Walking Dead once Friday rolls around. Is it safe to assume they'll all be 200 apiece? If so, I'll probably pick up Trials Evolution as well, since that'd leave me at 70 MSP.

No, I wouldn't assume 200 each at all. I assumed 300 each but I'm not even sure that will be accurate. The first 2 or 3 episodes I would guess to be 200 but episode 4 & 5 aren't really that old. I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't discounted at all.

Then again, I'm wondering if they just might do a package deal instead of individual sales. All 5 episodes for 1200 or 1600 or something. That way you end up paying for episode 1 even if you get it free.

But that could just be my paranoia talking.

God, I hope so, but they could do some weird number that doesn't have a nice round percentage off (I swear I remember there being a sale for 32% off once)

Nice to see Hybrid at 400, but I still can't justify buying it since it doesn't offer any single player content. MP just isn't my thing.

In for the other two tonight. Going to play Dust as soon as I can. Been waiting for it.

It's great. My XBLA GOTY so far, though I still need to wrap up Mark of the Ninja.

I do not think you are paranoid at all. I would not be surpirsed if the free episode 1 is the only discount. I am just hoping for any discount

Dust is amazing. Even if you didn't know that 1 guy did it all (almost all) and had to learn programming to do it, it's amazing on its own. Puts many seasoned programming veterans to shame (you hear me, Capcom???).

Mark of the Ninja is amazing so far as well. Microsoft is really publishing some gems this year.

I was honestly going to pick up Tony Hawk until I read the negative feedback on this thread. Decided to put those points +200 into Bully instead (glad I did).

Tony Hawk is garbage, please don't buy it. I got it out of nostalgia and instead I got a bag of dog crap burning on my digital doorstep.

With episode 1 free, that would mean the complete season would only cost $10. That would make it even cheaper than the steam deal. Find it hard to believe XBLA could beat steam, but we'll see. I would actually buy the episodes if they were 200 a piece. As it is now I'm just planning on grabbing the free episode.
