I Meant for me. I Give less of a hoot about much else. They're tempting, but I feel in terms of twin stick shooters that I got my fill.


Joy Ride Turbo is good stuff if you (or anyone) enjoys kart racers.

why is it that the price on dishwasher are different? if I buy it using the app and then i go to the actual marketplace, will it say 'already purchased' or will i have to buy it again?
I have heard people complaining about this in the past


They're different because you can only get the sale price through the app. Usually it should see that you purchased the game on the marketplace after a certain amount of time. But it doesn't really matter because it will be added to your download history on xbox.com where you can re-download it at any time.

I just looked into it further, and I would have to press "purchase" before the option to press X pops up on the screen.
...
As for others who were helpful, even if frustrated with the question being asked repeatedly, thank you for clearing up that points can be used - you just need to be at the final purchase screen.


You mean, just like it says in the OP... where I wrote how to purchase using points, and that it's on the final confirmation screen--now with a screencap of what it looks like, yah?

From your console, select the GoD title you wish to purchase and continue to the pop-up confirmation screen. As detailed at the bottom of the pop-up, press "X" to change the currency from Dollars to Microsoft Points.


For all the other "veterans" of this thread, is anyone else realizing that this is fastly gaining momentum as being THE question for this thread--even moreso than "Does anyone know the deal this week?" I, at least find it funny how popular this is becoming.

I Think it's only gaining momentum because Microsoft is finally putting GoD games on sale at reasonable prices (under $20) for the past few months.

That's a trade off I think I can live with.

I just looked into it further, and I would have to press "purchase" before the option to press X pops up on the screen. There is no prompt to press X for MS points in the initial overview like there should be.

The way it is set up suggests that you can only purchase it with dollars instead of points.

So no, it did not tell me what to do clearly and only throws it in at the very last screen. It's like waiting for the final checkout screen after putting an item in my virtual cart before I am made aware of alternative payment options.

I suppose things like this make you feel intellectually superior, and I'm glad you found a way to boost your self esteem, but it's not the most straightforward system for people who never buy games on demand and are instead used to points.

As for others who were helpful, even if frustrated with the question being asked repeatedly, thank you for clearing up that points can be used - you just need to be at the final purchase screen.


So it does tell you that you can press X to use points before you buy it. Like I said. Should they wait that one extra screen? It would be nice if the didn't, but they do. Since you buy stuff with points all the time, you know that there's a confirmation screen. You could look there, or try the OP. People get so lazy and don't bother looking for answers before asking. Instead of getting all butt-hurt because you can't be bothered to look for an answer, just learn from the experience. Have a nice day. :D

Edit: I'm glad Guardian Heroes is going on sale next week.

Farsight's publisher is bankrupt. Microsoft requires a publisher with a current Publishers Licensing Agreement, Sony doesn't. They're trying to get a new publisher. Probably three months before we get new tables on the 360.

RE4 is back to its sale price, awesome!

And thank you for finishing up the dirty work, Cornelius. I'm hoping to keep contributing to the OP, but I must admit my attention span can be short. :p

I just cannot seem to pull the trigger on RE4. I have not been a fan of the control scheme. Wish there was a demo.

It's not a problem ... it's something to feel "needed" while between jobs. :-(

Reminder: Get your horror-themed purchases done before 4pm PDT on Wednesday, because the numb-nuts @ Xbox Rewards don't account for the time-zone difference of GMT vs. Pacific time.

Edit: Lo & behold, lots of last-minute re-considerations to the Xbox Rewards wiki ... go take a look!

Was JUST signing online to notify others just in case. Picked up the 4 Walking Dead episodes earlier this month and snagged Dishwasher VS just now so my total is exactly 2000 msp for the 300 msp rebate. From previous experiences, this is the smartest thing to do. That time zone difference on these monthly deals can kill you. Cause 300 msp is a lot......It is really, this is CAG :lol:

Does Oblivion count toward the Shocktober promo? and/or Skyrim: Hearthfire? Cus I'm clicking the Shocktober ad on the dashboard and those are in there, so they should count right?

Just bought Pid. I think 800msp is sweet price for this game. :)

If anyone is interested in PC version, apparently it's DRM free.

I was doing a quick search on XBLDB and this popped out of nowhere... just in time for some retro horror blasting night, I guess ;)

Ya I personally find the Rewards program in general to be pretty stupid, except for months when you get 5% back on everything.

Looks like a cool game, but since I wouldn't play it now, I'll just wait for a sale.

What's the usual delay before a game is released as a GoD? I'm wondering when Transformers Fall of Cybertron will show up. Also do they initially release at $60, or a lower price?
