I guess they figure that if people buy the old discounted DLC, there's a chance that they'll just plop down the cash for this newly released DLC as well.

I play bad games

If anyone isn't going to use their code I'd love them forever.

I don't like Godzilla.

There are just so many un-Godzilla like things it should be easy to see why people didn't like it (also the annoying cast). Zilla being killed by missiles was the biggest thing that bothered me Godzilla is supposed to be far stronger than that. The army shouldn't be able to hurt Godzilla unless they are using something like MechaGodzilla or Moguera.

I also updated my "XBLA games not to go on sale" spreadsheet for the end of the year. This holiday sale took a ton of games off the list. Please let me know if you see any errors with the list, as I usually just update it based on memory.

Fun Facts:
107 Games released on XBLA in 2012 (I'm not including the $3 Kinect Sports titles that they just released)
66 of those have already been on sale at least once (more than 60%)


Scarygirl had a price drom from 1200 to 800 a day after release or so. Not sure if it was listed incorrectly, but it was a drop.

I also would have liked to have seen Amy go on sale for half off. Call it morbid curiosity, but I'd be willing to check it out. The Alien Breed games seem to never want to go on sale anymore.

Anyways, since we're listing hauls:

Realms of Ancient War (RAW)
Deadlight
Mark of the Ninja
The Walking Dead

Xbox Support refuse to give me my 120 MSP back for Hearthfire paid 320 instead of 200 meh..they say they have no option for doing so =P so all this people who bought dawnguard for 1200 didn't get refunded 400 MSP today? I call bullshit =P

What did you think of it? I thought the controls were a little floaty and there are better platformers out there, but I might pick it up myself if it drops to 400 here in the States. My 7 year old niece might like to play it as well.

Xbox Live 2012 Christmas Sale haul

Kinect Party & DLC
RAW Realms of War
Mark of the Ninja
Dust: ET
Deadlight
Fruit Ninja DLC
TWD episode 1 (Have the CE disk)
Hearth fire & Dawn-guard

Microsoft is a genius for doing the 2% back on MSP for the achievements. It makes pulling the trigger on things during a great sale like this even easier as you know you're getting just that little bit extra back.

How many fanboys does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

10, 1 to do it & 9 to complain how much better the 1st one was.

Very satisfied with this sale. I picked up Fez, Mark of the Ninja, Trials Evolution, The Walking Dead and Dust. Add in Spelunky from the earlier sale and I pretty much checked off everything I was interested in (which is good, since I have no points left).

So pissed I missed Mark of the Ninja. It seems the type of game to go on sale again at some point. Will snatch it then.

peggle is so much fun and peggle nights is more of the same (a good thing)

You know i love the game and it is great, but the base game has so much content, that i just can't see myself ever having the time to complete all the challenges, so even if nights was a dollar i just don't see the point in adding more content when there's already sooo much. That's telling of a great game when it already has so much content i don't feel the need for more. Does nights add anything like, that wows, or is it just more levels (there's already so many levels in the base game levels alone aren't gonna do it for me)?

i finally cracked on mortal kombat arcade, maybe having an arcade stick pushed me over the tip there cos i've been on the fence the last 2 times it was on sale.

Hey guys and girls, if you haven't got around to nabbing Kinect Party (and its Full Unlock DLC) or Walking Dead Ep. 1 for FREE, then you need to do that today. (with a few hours of forgiveness early into tomorrow, I'm sure)

First post. My loot during these holiday sales and discounts have been:


Hold up, are you the same BUTTON_sMASHER that used to browse the Ultra Heavy Beat? :D I just came!

It was EU only, and I'm getting tired of waiting for that game to drop, I definitely want to check it out. Even the PS Mini version that this game is based on has gone on sale a few games, but for some reason this game just won't drop for either XBLA or PSN.

What makes you say that? It's easily this year's strongest Summer of Arcade title. Additionally, their previous game, Shank 2, has only been on sale once on XBL and PSN if I'm not mistaken.

Wasn't Dust one of the SoA games this year? One of the best arcade games I've ever played. I need to put more time into Fez before I make my verdict but it's between the two right now.

It was a pricing error unless Square Enix wanted to charge $5 more on XBLA than other platforms that they released it on.

Mark of the Ninja wasn't a Summer of Arcade title. Also, Shank 2 hasn't been on sale on XBLA yet. It was free for PS+ when it released.
