I didn't go too crazy this year as I already own a lot of the sale stuff. This is what I got:
  • Borderlands 2 Season Pass
  • Borderlands Games on Demand (for my girlfriend's account)
  • The Walking Dead Episodes 1-5
  • World of Keflings DLC
  • 2 dinosaur avatar items (for my daughter's account)

The price will be 50%, not 50% off. They're trying to trick us again!

Is that from the bargain CD's at the front of 7-11? Alongside TwelvePac and Kung Fu Clan and many others?

I thought Zeno Clash was 200 semi-recently?

I'd also love to grab Zeno Clash for 400msp. This might mean a Atlus sale, which would more likely include Zeno Clash, Trine 2, Rock of Ages and maybe a Catherine GoD discount? But Trine 2 and Rock of Ages were literally just on sale, so maybe not.

Yup, looks like EA Sports DotW. Zeno for half off though is tempting.

The lowest it's been is 600 about a year and a half ago.

Hmm, ok. I guess I'm wrong on that one, though I swear I'm usually good at remembering what's games have dropped to what, haha.

well I'm just saying there is talk of it being the GOTY and I believe it won it on the VGA. For me its very good but yeah not GOTY (i'd give that to Halo 4 probably)


Pretty much the same here. Granted, I've only finished Episode 2 but I didn't find it to be nearly as good as Episode 1. (It also seemed a bit unpolished from the first episode but that might just be the large gap in when I played them. I got episode 1 when it released. Everything else I waited for a sale on.)

Prices are slowly reverting back to normal, specially including Oblivion/Skyrim GoD prices. Posting some of the weekly specials now, but someone's going to have fun Tuesday morning axe'ing half of the OP! :)

Almost done with my edits ... decided all the daily specials could go, since they're already noted as "deals you missed" in the Dashboard. :-(

Yikes, I spent 11,120 MSP in December. Microsoft has really stepped up its game lately. Is anyone else regretting not getting more from the Target sale/goof? I thought I'd be set well into the next generation at the time.

just picked up Bully since it was still cheap. Regret not getting Oblivion, am considering NBA Jam and Blitz but then I realize for 200 more MSP I coulda had Oblivion and its infinite more play time

Only picked up Dust on this sale since I will get Mark of the Ninja through Steam instead at a later date (my backlog is enormous) so I can use a PS3 controller instead. Besides, I only have a 20GB hard drive.

Have to decide on Sine Mora (and Akai Katana for that matter) yet and will wait for an Ikaruga / WO3 DLC / Catan (which I know I missed in November) sale.

You also missed Catan 2 weeks ago in the scratch and match loser deals

Just got Dust, Fez, & all the Walking Dead episodes.

Also, go to Chain Reaction in the S&S+ app & the first "offer" is a free Toy Soldiers Toy Biplane prop.

This was a nice, light sale for me. I picked up Mark of the Ninja, Deadlight, Rayman Origins, and Crazy Taxi. Good prices on all.

I bought it a long time ago when it went to 200. I actually thought it was a fun game. Very simple and easy (you can 200/200 in just a few minutes if your an achievement whore) to play for someone who has no idea how to play real hockey. Heck, I haven't even seen snow in nearly 20 years.

Ack, that stinks. Oh well - I didn't even think to look at that. Thanks though!

It shouldn't be hard to wait out for some sort of deal on them all.

I tried the NFL Blitz demo not too long ago but didn't really care for it. I'll give the Madden arcade game a shot, but these days I think I prefer the singular nature of experiences like Backbreaker Vengeance over traditional football affair. I'll try the demo for the NHL game too, and it looks like Diabolical Pitch got an price drop (?) so I'll try that demo too.
