Didn't see it mentioned, but Diabolical Pitch is half off as well, I'd assume it's the Kinect deal of the week. I think a few of us Kinect users have been waiting for it to hit half off. Also, it has Avatar Awards. :)

I can also easily recommend Blitz for 50% off. Really fun game, even if the single player content is a little bit lacking. NBA Jam is great too, and has a better single player setup IMO.

Just a reminder, if you own a 3DS or DS, Puzzle Quest Galactrix is $1.99 used at Gamestop. If you don't it's finally at a reasonable price on Xbox as it is pretty darn good if you like the Puzzle Quest formula.

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.


Thanks man, always love free Avatar stuff!

Picked up the crappy hockey game just because it's 200 msp.
<---- no self control


Haha it's definitely not a crappy game. It and Madden Arcade are fun games, and even more fun if you have someone to play with.

Was just about to ask this. Any other opinions on Galactrix? I love Puzzle Quest, is Galactrix just as long as 1 & 2?

Is the Skyrim DLC sale over? I was going to pick up Dawnguard and it was just 800 when I looked, tried to purchase and got an error.

I enjoyed Galactrix because it changes up the puzzle mechanic quite a bit, but they sort of shot themselves in the foot with how much you need to do the hacking puzzles just to get around. I don't understand how that game is still $20 on XBLA if the others are $10.

Thanks. I'd buy it blind it if was normally $10 and $5 on sale, but since it's not I'm gonna check out the demo. I'll probably still end up getting it.

Also, I noticed Frogger and Deep Black are still on sale. DAMN! I was hoping these would have expired already so I wouldn't be tempted by them...

WTF, two weeks in a row without Major Nelson updating Dotw's? It's the first time it happened (since I have the Xbox360). Do you guys think that's weird, or it has happened before?

Maybe he won't update them anymore to avoid all the bitching from users? :lol:

Even I enjoyed the XBLA Dragon's Lair when it was up for 400MSP; I even played it way past its time (never played it back when it was in actual arcades) and that stands as one of my favorite Kinect games (up there with Child of Eden, Mass Effect 3, Halo Anniversary, and Forza Horizon) even for just being an interactive movie like The Walking Dead games. ^^

Don't get me wrong, I also like interactive movies such as Dragon's Lair, and TWD games are very good, and it gets better with every new chapter. It's just that I find that they have very little of "game" and very much of "movie" to be considered the best game of the year. It has so much of movie that I wouldn't ever say one of them is GOTY, and say it's MOTY instead xDDDDD

But hey! to each their own. I have nothing against developers that do them, since if the story is good I will play them with no problem at all.

He used to update it randomly. There wasn't really any consistency to his updates so I'm guessing you're really new. He's been updating fairly regularly for a few months, but I don't even think he made it the last 6 months without missing at least a few weeks.

Considering the last two Tuesdays have been Christmas Day and New Year's Day, I don't think we have anything to worry about. I'd bet we'll get an update next Tuesday, especially since the New Releases schedule should start kicking back in.

Yup. Looks like it just switched back.

Really? I don't think he's missed a Tuesday update (before last week) for at least a year or more. He's gotten really good at posting them every Tuesday morning.

I considered picking up the Madden game for the achievements, but I suck at multiplayer games and most of these achievements require beating people online. So I'm passing.

Thanks for the reply. Yup, I only have a Xbox 360 for about little more than a year, but in all that time he hasn't missed a single Dotw.

We have Spylon's site, but Major updated us for two whole weeks, and that is better to plan how to waste MS points xDD

Removed sales that ended this morning. They are now back to full MSRP.

Hmmm the Puzzle Quest games are tempting. Both worth 400? If you only got 1 which would it be?

Puzzle Quest 1 for sure. Best PSP game of all time.

Both are worth it. If you want to only get one, the first is better but harder.

Thanks. I tried the Demo of the first one and liked it but I still might get both at that price since I held off on Skyrim DLC.

From the holiday sale my haul was:

Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition
Zuma's Revenge!
A World of Keflings - Sugar, Spice and Not So Nice
A World of Keflings - It Came From Outer Space
Jet Set Radio
Bully: Scholarship Edition
Fez
HELL YEAH! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit
Sonic Adventure 2
Mark of the Ninja
Trine 2
Dust: An Elysian Tail
Deadlight
Trials Evolution: Origin of Pain
Borderlands 2 Season Pass
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Dawnguard
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Hearthfire

I would've grabbed all the Fruit Ninja Kinect DLC at half off, as well as Backbreaker, but I forgot about both. Slightly upset I missed Backbreaker, I've been waiting for it to go on sale, but I just lost track of which day it was. Oh well..

Definitely glad I stocked up on Target Black Friday points, but unfortunately they're are gone now...

This week I'm going to pick up NFL Blitz, and nothing else. The puzzle quest games don't really interest me.

It's actually a decent "arcade" hockey game. It reminds me of Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey on the N64. Great multi-player game. I would recommend it to anyone with even a slight interest in the sport especially at this price.

Hmm, NBA Jam and Blitz are on sale, I'm tempted, but I kinda feel I can wait until 800 points markdown now and then wait until they're discounted off at that price.

1 and 2 were just on sale a few weeks ago, so there was a decent amount of discussion about them then. The consensus seems to be that 1 is quite a bit better (which I personally think as well) but both are worth 400 if you like that type of game.

The gameplay is addictive on an unreal level. I love Puzzle Quest.

Does anybody have any thoughts on Puzzle Quest Galactrix? I have Puzzle Quest and Puzzle Quest 2 from prior XBLA sales, but I think this is the first time I have seen Galactrix at any sort of discount from its normal price. Would love to hear some feedback - the 50% discount is nice, but 800 MSP is a bit on the pricier side of XBLA.

Puzzle Quest Galactrix says "SAVE 800" but the download costs 800 MSP, so is the normal price 1600 MSP or is this just an error?

RAW
World/Keflings DLC: Super, Spice, & Not So Nice
