Hmm...200 for Leedmees makes it a for sure purchase. Can anyone comment on Mini Ninjas Adventures?

For those interested in the Hydro Thunder DLC, all the extra races are locked behind credits, just like all the normal levels. So unless you've played the hell out of Hydro Thunder, the DLC doesn't do that much for ya. I bought the DLC but had to grind to still unlock the 1st of 3 extra races. The other 2 remain locked, and it was pretty much a waste of a couple bucks for me.


Hmmmm....would you say Hydro Thunder without the DLC is worth picking up at 400 points? I am a little intrigued, but part of me says to just save my spacebucks. Thoughts?

I've been eyeing Mini Ninjas Adventures myself as well as the original Mini Ninjas. Downloading the demo of MNA, hopefully it is decent.

If you enjoyed playing Hydro Thunder in the arcades I would say it is a no brainer purchase. Plus if it is any consolation the DLC has never been on sale according to XBLDB.

Went in for Leedmees and Rock of Ages. I haven't researched either of the games, but 200 MSP apiece for two full games is a great deal. That's about two weeks of Bing searches, if you're into that. Also queued up TWD Season 1 despite owning it on PC. The more GS the better. ;)

I'm wondering if I should get any FNK DLC. I have some points left over, but extra sprites have never really appealed to me. Can anyone make a good case for getting the DLC for 80 MSP apiece? They just don't seem to add enough to the game aside from achievements.

The first three pieces of DLC have easy cheezmints, otherwise it's same game. Though for some reason later DLC stopped with adding cheezmints and if that doesn't sell you, well, that's going to be about it.

Oh and cheap I guess...

It's fun and pretty good looking. I definitely didn't sink a ton of time into it (maybe 5-7 hours) but there is easily another 5-10 hours that I could play if I wanted to, so the game has lots of content. It controls well and could definitely be defined as an arcade racer. There are speed boosts and turbo, but no weapons to attack the other racers. I think it's a fairly tough game, you'll spend time getting to know each track before you starting winning a lot of races.

It has a regular campaign mode, then it has "ring" and "gauntlet" modes where you have to drive through the rings and avoid things and beat gold/silver/bronze times. It also has another advanced campaign mode that has a lot more races, if I remember correctly. There are also 10 hidden tokens on each level that can be searched for and collected.

At this point I'd assume the online is pretty dead, but there's still a lot of content here if that's what you're looking for. It has interesting achievements, all the easy achievements are worth a lot of Gamerscore, and the difficult ones are only worth like 5 or 10 points.

Also, AVATAR AWARDS!!!

TL;DR - I'd definitely recommend it for 400 MSP, but it does have a lot of content and if you want the 200/200 (or 250/250) it's definitely gonna take some time.

Hydro Thunder is awesome. It fills the void left in this gen by MIA F-Zero and Wave Race sequels. The DLC is worth picking up too.

Hydro Thunder was fun, but too time consuming to grind and unlock everything for a simple arcade racer. I agree if everything was already unlocked it would have a larger fun factor.

Hydro Thunder is excellent. Especially in local multiplayer mode, which is a rarity for XBLA racers.

Also, if you don't buy Trials EVO for 50% off you either have:

A) no taste
B) no soul
C) both


I think we are going to have to wait a while to take this test.


It's only 33% off. No buy.


Is it 50% off? Thought it was 33%.


Its 33% off, trials evolution.


I played the demo, and while fun, the repeated crashing till I barely squeaked to the end has made me wait till it's at least 50% off or more before I'd consider buying it. See you next year around this time Evo.

man, I finally decided to bite on Catan...and it shows as 800 MSP :( My own fault for waiting so long but still a real bummer. Did snag TWD episode 1 for free though, guess that will jump to the top of my backlog to see if any of the rest of the episodes are worth picking up.

Then you didn't read the OP carefully ... read all the CYAN-colored text, and you'll discover the secret to getting "Catan" for 400 MSP. It should be that price for at least 5 more hours, until they refresh Marketplace pricing @ 2am PST on Tuesday morning. :)

You probably haven't gotten very far, then. Get back to us when the roof collapses on you without warning or you have to run from the helicopter.

I thought it said the 21st, but maybe that was joke on their part (since if the world ended the contest couldn't go beyond that). There seems to be no mention of it anymore, so I think it's all month long.

The promo is still going on at http://rewards.xbox....lyptic-rewards/, but now it's an "additional December bonus offer", and the only true "Apocalyptic Reward" was that they cashed in everyone's pending-point balance showing Dec. 1st and Dec. 15th (and paid out by Dec. 22nd). Any credit earned after Dec. 15th will then be paid by Jan. 15th, provided you have the 100 MSP minimum threshold before they'll deposit into your account.

The only caveat is to ensure you're a GOLD Xbox Live subscriber for the entire month, and don't let your subscription run out at any time (even for a day). Complete terms are here ... http://rewards.xbox.com/faq/#fmi.

Mini Ninjas demo seemed extremely lame. Stand, move left or right, swing sword. Probably would have just bought it for the hell of it for 200 MSP, but 400 MSP I'm gonna have to pass.

I figured I'd drop in to say that I finished the first episode of The Walking Dead. Now I'm eagerly waiting 'til the rest of it's on sale so I can finish it. Surprisingly fun to play.

Okay sounds good. Im a pretty big fan of the show, so it should be that much better. BTW Bully def. shows age compared to what were used to now. Im trying to get over the graphics and enjoy the game for what its truly worth, but its pretty hard.

The game looks fine to me. It's the camera controls that spells out how old that game is.

You read it. You can't unread it.

What's wrong with the Camera controls? I was thinking about buying Bully. If right stick isn't camera, or if it's really wonky, maybe I won't buy...
