Don't forget that BK was released in a 2 disc pack with Viva Pinata as a 360 console bundle and can be found for $10-15. Both games and manuals are original discs, only the case is shared.


There's two games that really get overlooked by the "hardcore" crowd. Viva Pinata is a fantastic game, and Banjo is a pretty good vehicle building platformer. I have spent way to much time playing Viva Pinata in the past though.

Now this I can fap to.

[quote name='dark_inchworm']I second that nomination - though I have no issue whatsoever with reddjoey retaining the throne - but if someone else decides to adopt the thread as his/her own and doesn't make it a wiki thread... bye!

Why did Reddjoey stop in the first place?

I guess I could look past the missing stuff in Crazy Taxi for 200msp, fun little game to play every now and then

Got Toy Story 3 and Crazy Taxi. Only 2 more days and my wallet can take a breather.

School. I haven't seen him post in months, but he must stop by at least once a week to change the title of the thread. Although this week looks like he's a little behind.

I'd love for him to come back, I think he did a great job. But as far as I can tell, that won't be happening any time soon.

Just noticed Backbreaker Vengeance is on sale for 50%.

I highly recommend it if you're a fan of sports games. The physics and animations are amazing.

many people have had this issue with walking dead including me

never had it with any other game and i've played countless games


Hearing some CAGs had the glitches of different kind happen to them as well as reading the horror stories ( maybe slight exaggerated but still ) on the Telltale forums made me decide to put off buying TWD on XBLA or getting the retail version on the XBOX system, even at half off from this sale. From what I am reading, all platforms are having their own problems but it seems both the retail and digital 360 versions were hit with the most problems. And with my luck, I'll probably end up getting glitched. ( I usually end up with the short end of the stick. )

If Telltale game was trying something to fix it, then I might be inclined to go ahead and buy it and then wait for a fix. But reading the Telltale mods posts, it seems that they aren't working on a real patch, but rather trying to look for workarounds, which may or may not work for all people. If some of you guys are still on the fence about purchasing TWD because of these issues, I suggest going to Telltale game forums and reading about it before making a decision.

To me, Offspring is Crazy Taxi. It's not the same without it.

Might grab The Splatters just so I can get one more sales item. So, the first falls on a Tuesday. I hope they bring in the new year with something cool. Maybe even sneak it in on the loser prizes for Scratch and Match. Something awesome, like Mega Man 9 for 400 points awesome.

Well, I don't know what to tell you then. I guess God just loves me more than he loves you, lol. Geez, people. Settle down. I just saw a lot of people making it sound like it was some unavoidable glitch just waiting to happen, and throwing a lot of undeserved hate at a really great game. I paid full price for every episode and enjoyed the hell out of the game. Not buying it for less than half price because of the possibility of a bug is crazy.


If a game isn't working for someone, that's not undeserved hate. It's a statement of fact about a bug that makes the product a non-starter for some percentage of users. I think TWD is getting enough love already that it doesn't need any from people that have payed for it and can't play it.

RE: Nuts & Bolts. It's an excellent game and well worth pulling the trigger on, unless you actually have the Viva-Pinata double pack in hand. Would be a shame to let it go forgotten due to good intentions on that disc and a holiday backlog.

1. Turn off music in game
2. Play The Offspring on your phone/computer/mp3 player

Problem solved

Or better yet, put The Offspring on a flash drive/your HD/etc. and just play it from your 360 during the game. I never played Crazy Taxi when it was in its prime (and believe me, I got plenty of flak from my friends for owning a Dreamcast and not buying Crazy Taxi), so I plan on making a playlist of the original game's OST on a flash drive and playing it in-game through my 360. :D

Yep, this is what you do. It's not exactly the same yes, and it doesn't stop and rotate to the other songs, unless you have the OST, but having it stop at the end of stage and all of that was part of the allure.

They still have an arcade sit down cabinet of CT at my local Movie Theater, so it's nice hearing "YA YA YA YA YAH!" occasionally. xD

Considering the 25th anniversary of Mega Man was recent (coupled with the holiday sale), I'm surprised there has not been a sale with either Mega Man game :(

Wow, apparently "Crash of the Titans" is a Crash Bandicoot game? I had no idea this game existed. I was confused, thought that Crash of the Titans was the sequel to Clash of the Titans, and we were getting a game based on that movie.

Anyways, what the hell is Crash of the Titans and is it any good? Looks like it's down to $9.99.


Yeah I thought exactly the same thing as you did.

But it doesn't have the name Street Fighter or Resident Evil in the title. Why would Capcom even bat an eye towards it?

And Crazy Taxi for 200 was my buy point so it is bought. Just wish Cars 2 was 800 points as well.

Went ahead and got TWD episodes 2-5, episode 1 was good enough for me to go for the rest.

I'll back you up on that one. I never thought the save-eating glitch was enough to ruin the game for me. In fact, I just finished the last episode - powerful ending, too. May or may not have teared up over it.

Walking Dead (game, obviously) spoilers, heads up.

Seriously, don't click if you don't want to have the ending spoiled.

Spoiler


So yeah, really looking forward to the next season and seeing what they do with it.

wish i hadn't passed on borderlands 1 for $9.99. even though i have a GOTY disc. by the time i'd be ready for the GOTY DLC it will be on sale again (DLC) or permanent price drop. but this would have been a perfect excuse to unload the game to recoup some $.

Yep, disappointing with the lack of any Mega Man sale. :(

Will buy Crazy Taxi for sure - heard the port is terrible, but just for 200 i'm in. See MS? Even the garbage sell if you slash the price enough. :lol:

I recommend The Splatters at current price. It's fun until you reach the last levels, which requies a lot of precision.

I had a feeling Crazy Taxi was going to be 200, and I told myself if it was, I'd cave. And I did. :P

Does anyone think Street Fighter 3 has a chance of being 400? I'm hoping so, even though I know it'll likely be 600.

I Was basically about to post how I hope it's 400 as well. I Think it's been on sale at least 3-4 times now already for 600 points, so I can only hope that now is the time they mark it down to that cheap.

Though if it's only half off then I figure I'll just keep waiting.

Agreed, I feel the same.

Not a sale, but it seems Retro City Rampage is finally headed to XBLA next week (Jan. 2nd).


FINALLY!!! I've already 100%'d it on PC, but I'll most likely buy it Day 1 just to support that guy and the years of work he put in this.
