Just an F.Y.I for those interested in the Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts, I'd suggest saving your points & hard drive space, & pick up a preowned copy from Best Buy for $7.99 w/ free shipping. (excluding any discounts for you Reward Zone Gamers Club members / Reward Zone certificates)

I hear people mention hoping for a recap sale at the end, while that makes a ton of sense, they've never done that in past years have they?

Sorry mate, you're outta luck :drool:


My 4 year old son decided today he really likes Hydro Thunder, so looks like I missed out on that. I know it's been on sale before, but not sure if it's been 400msp, or just the 33% 800msp or 50% 600msp. Here's hoping for another sale soon.

Anyone have any opinions on the LC:GoL add-on packs? Worth it or no?

No, the challenge packs were pretty lame from what I played from them. Unless you LOVED the game and have to have more, I'd pass.

I really don't see why they would do a one day repeat sale, and I'm 99.99% sure it won't happen.

Banjo Kazooie is $9.99 used on Gamestop too, So I am passing on that one...

But, I am interested in Toy Story and Crash of the titans. I thought Crash would be down to $9.99 new now days anyways, but Amazon is showing it is $155.. Whats up with that? Is it actually rare now days or is someone just stupid and pricing it way too high?

While I'm with you on that percentage, maybe you should ask Valve and GOG why they would bother repeating sales in the same sale period.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

I'm pretty sure it won't happen either, but not seeing why they would is pretty shortsighted. I mean, between people who got points at xmas, were saving their points for future deals that weren't as good as they hoped and ones who simply ran out of time debating and need one more last minute "if I don't get it now" moment. I would imagine the numbers would be very good for a recap. Maybe not for CAGs but CAGs aren't the major purchasers of games in these sales.

Hell, they pretty much invite the talk by leaving the "deals you missed" calendar up until the end.

If I'm able to buy Games from the US marketplace, I'm also able to play them with my EU account right? Only problem that could occur that I can't buy/download it because it is region locked, right? =O

I would suggest picking up Banjo Kazooie with the Viva bundle new for around $14 on eBay.
My collection and trade-list:
H: The Legend Of Zelda: Hyrule Historia LE in Mint condition W: equal value in trades or amazon/eBay prices

Ehh, I'm not feeling The Splatters, even for 200 points. And I know people love Crazy Taxi but I hate time based stuff like that.

Does anyone think The Splatters is worth it?

Splatters is ok. Fun can be had with it, but theres more fun to be had in a million other games for me. I passed even on 200.

All of this serious talk about the splatters is hilarious to my dirty mind. Nobody should intentionally get the splatters.

I think I'll pick up Banjo & Kazooie N&B and Toy Story 3 at those prices.

You read it. You can't unread it.

That's essentially what cyber monday is for most retailers that have a brick and mortar presence on black friday.

What's wrong with The Splatters? I bought it when it was on sale for 400 a while back and had fun for the few hours I played it. It'll probably be a while before I go back to it, but I didn't think there was anything wrong with it.

If Cars 2 was for 10 I would pick it up for my son. Guess I'll wait until Sonic is goes down in price or try to find the first one.

I also enjoyed the time I spent with The Splatters. If I didn't already have it, I wouldn't even hesitate to grab it at 200 MSP.

Unfunny..just redemeed 1600 MSP on my US account but can't buy Crash of the Titans or Toy Story 3 becaause it says it's not available in my location (even if it is) way to go MS..I just didn't want to spend 1680 MSP (deal price today) alone on Crash Bandicoot over here...*sigh*

Played the demo and passed when it was on sale for 400 just because of backlog. Didn't hesitate when I saw it was 200msp. The price wasn't even updated yet, but popped up on the confirmation page when I got in on it.

To put it in perspective, it's $2.50, less than your Starbucks latte.

Exactly. I'm happy with the 400 I spent on it. 600 might be pushing it, but I think it's a perfectly fine $5 purchase. 200 is a no brainer.

Also, can anyone recommend Crash of the Titans? I loved the Crash games when I was younger. Now obviously I know they're nowhere near as good as the originals, but is it worth the 800? With Banjo Kazooie being so readily available for similar prices elsewhere, I'm likely going to hold off on that one. I have Toy Story 3 from Blockbuster's free trial thingy, but I haven't played it yet so I went ahead and picked it up for 360 since my free trial ends in a few weeks. I'll just send that one back.

Cool, I'll have to go check on that Dungeon Fighter game. That is the only one I want from that days deals since I already have the other 2 on the PS3.

Thanks, but still 200 points too high for me to bite.

Grabbed the splatters. Nuts and Bolts is phenomenal, just know what to expect. It's not really a banjo kazooie game, more of a kart builder and racing game.
