Is the 2K sale all week?

And the online for Future Soldier is pretty much dead, especially for the dlc maps, but this sale could change that but I would be hesitant.

Well, if I was a betting man, I would have lost money. I was almost sure that Major Nelson would have had the "Coming Soon" post up today. Anyway, he just tweeted he'll have one up for next week.

Looks like I am going to pick up PB Winterbottom, Axel and Pixel and possibly the Ghost Recon: Raven Strike DLC (appears to be the only single player piece of DLC). Going to demo Pool Nation and Scarygirl.

My New Years Resolution should have been to play through my back log of XBLA titles.

He probably mistyped his last name too many times (transposed the "r" and "y") and locked up his account. ;)

Wasn't this free at one point in the Kinect app when the Kinect app was first launched? Could be wrong.

You're thinking of Haunt, probably, which other than being "scary" isn't similar at all. But it's all good ;)

Most sales do last all week (Tuesday to early the following Tuesday), so unless it's plainly stated otherwise somewhere, it seems like a safe assumption.

Sucks to hear about the Future Soldier MP - I rented the game a few weeks back and while I didn't get incredibly far in it, I thought the single-player experience was a blast. Different than what I'm used to, but fun! I hadn't played any of the Ghost Recon titles up to that point, neither the old ones on PC nor the newer iterations on 360. You know, for what it's worth.

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

Yeah, there was actually a movement on the official forums to make the DLC maps free, because the people who bought them couldn't play them

Yes. Its the same as if you had the disc in. Nothing changes.

I picked up BL the first time its GoD dropped to $13 early last year. Just grabbed BL2 GoD during the Holiday sale. These are games that MUST be ready to load up at my slightest whim from my HD at a moments notice.

I guess i'm the ugliest one here and cainaiac is the sexiest, damn.

 

Hey i just realized canniac bruh has my post in his sig, nice!

Axel & Pixel reminds me of this old computer game called The Neverhood. Is it anything like that?

It was a mistake in the OP. 1600/$19.99 is the sale price, unfortunately.

Sorry about that ... I assumed the game was $20 MSRP, since the Dashboard said "$10.00 off". It's been fixed this morning that I've sucked in all the info from Spylon's xbldb recent scrape, plus added a little more info about "Mafia II Director's Cut". I'll be happy to add Metacritic & Quick Look links later this week, unless others have the time to burn. :)

Actually, that's a very good analogy ... you perform "hunt & click" actions upon a single-screen, and once you've "unlocked" everything, you move to the next screen. There's 3 "action" sequences that are a little more arcade-like, but they'll only frustrate you if you're trying for a good score/outcome. On a scale of 1-5 (1=easy, 5=hard), I'd say the puzzles are around 3-4, so you'll definitely enjoy it more than other "hunt & click / hidden object" types of games.

Cornelius beat me to it, but...

Yes, it's like The Neverhood in that it's a point and click adventure, basically

No, it's not like it in that it doesn't have characters, places, and music that perfectly balance eerie, adorable, and hilarious. (Though Axel & Pixel is cute and weird in its own way)

Now you make me wish The Neverhood would hit XBLA, but that franchise is probably at the very bottom of the barrel as far as Microsoft's priorities are concerned. That and I'm pretty sure they never owned any rights beyond publishing rights.

looks like Mafia 2 is $19.99. not sure if it's discounted to that price or if it's been that price but that's what i see on the marketplace.

According to xbldb.com, Mafia 2 is normally 19.99, so I would hold off on buying it for now, $10 off should make it 9.99 for the sale.

I recommend the game though, very good game.

Noted in OP for both the GoD & "Jimmy's Vendetta" DLC.

Looks like I am going to pick up PB Winterbottom, Axel and Pixel and possibly the Ghost Recon: Raven Strike DLC (appears to be the only single player piece of DLC).


Good to know about "Raven Strike" ... added that info to the OP as well.

It was on sale in the UK around Easter last year. North America didn't get that sale. I remember seeing the Arkham City DLC discounted during that sale as well and being disappointed when we didn't get it. I knew it was only a matter of time and sure enough we got ours recently.

From experience? No, not yet (still!). But the general consensus seems to be that Minerva's Den is an incredible single-player addition to the game. Can't really speak for the rest...

Minerva's Den is some of the best DLC I've ever played. Up there with ME2 Shadow Broker and most of the Bethesda stuff.

The rest of the DLC is kind of meh. More protection trials if you liked those, and lots of multiplayer if you're into that.
