Sorry to ask, but I can't find an answer anywhere: Where do you get the scratch and match app? I'm late to the party and I can't find it anywhere after the update. Looked in Game Sale area, used the Bing search, and can't find anything.

The app is called Sales and Specials+. Look for that under the applications section and you should find it.

Looks like next week's Deal of the Week is just one arcade game, I Am Alive. It's only 33% off for 800 msp. I'll wait till it hits 600 msp or maybe 400. It'll go lower

I'm guessing there will be a BF sale which isn't listed yet which is probably why there is only 1 game on sale next week.

I probably would have bitten on I Am Alive for 600MSP but for 800MSP I'll wait a bit longer. I guess being on sale now means no chance of being in a Black Friday deal?

I HIGHLY doubt it. However, Wreckateer was 50% off at 400msp a week or two ago and it could possibly be free as part of the 10 Year Anniversary sale(awaiting confirmation that is a worldwide deal). So it's not entirely impossible.....Don't count on it though

Im actually kinda mad it wasn't mentioned in the blog. It also sucks microsoft took out the videos from the dash. Remember when Major Nelson would act like some idiotic car salesman and talk about the BF and CM sales?

I can't even imagine the nerdrage that would ensue if they stacked an additional discount atop the DOTW markdown. So yeah, I would not count on that happening.

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

No big deal. I'll just wait until next year then. The original magic never had the expansions go on sale so I never bought them (the 2012 expansion was on sale before). It doesn't look like any of the expansions are on sale this time either.

OMG I want Crazy Larry back. The Major has done the CL bit the past two years, so I don't see why he wouldn't do it again. I think it'll be a surprise and it'll hit the dash a day or two before Black Friday. COME ON CRAZY LARRY!!!!! :lol:

You must not like poker I guess,because Full House Poker is pretty fun.I bought it last year for 400MSP and i have to say that i really enjoyed the game and even more when they do the daily Texas Heat games online.

No, I love poker, which is why I can't stand this game.

Here's why I hate it:
  • Mind-numbingly stupid and predictable AI
  • Texas Heat ranking is based on "XP", which rarely correlates to how you're actually doing. The highest place people are always the ones at tables with lots of bots, because they can get more hands in (and you earn XP just for being dealt in)
  • Connection issues, kick issues, awful servers... this has been going on for years with this game
  • No stakes whatsoever for the Texas Heat games. If you get knocked out, you get more chips at another table. People play every single hand and rarely fold, and it becomes a game of 100% luck instead of a mix of luck and skill (which is why poker is so great)
  • This won't matter to some of you, but there are unobtainable achievements if you purchase now. Also, there are two achievements based on mindless grinding, one of which will take you 50+ hours.

This game will make you a worse poker player. I had really high hopes for it when it came out, too.

Yeah honestly Major Nelson gadding about I can live without. Here's hoping on a BF sale though.

Idk about full house (I'm sure plenty are still playing), BF still has a active community.

If you count Sonic Free Riders, then that's on sale. $15/1,200 MSP instead of $25/2,000 MSP.

They had Alan Wake American Nightmare at 600 msp when that was on sale but could not do the same for I Am Alive.
I don't know if I will pick it up for 800 or just wait for it in another sale.

Looks like for the 10 year anniversary sale there could be Game on Demand games as it says the price varies

Puzzle Fighter for 400. I Have the Capcom Digital Collection, but don't know if I want to pay for it without it using my disc drive...


I actually just traded in my Capcom Digital Collection to Best Buy for $16, so this is perfect timing for me to be able to buy the best game on the disc back.

http://www.xbox.com/...n/live10th/home

Wreckateer - FREE

Battlefield 1943 - 600msp (50% off)

Castle Crashers - 600msp (50% off)

Fruit Ninja Kinect - 400msp (50% off)

Geometry Wars Evolved - 200msp (50% off)

Bastion - 600msp (50% off)

Peggle - 400mp (50% off)

Full House Pocker - 400msp (50% off)


Like you say, it's highly unlikely, but I sure hope that is the Japan only list. All those games have been on sale tons of times.

Coming to Xbox Live blog post is up.

I Am Alive to be 800 MSP next week (400 MSP off) & there will be a Xbox Live 10th Anniversary sale starting on Thursday.


I hate when they do 33% off. Like everyone else here, I'll pass at 800msp.

I'm also very excited to finally be able to pick up both Puzzle Quest games. It's been forever since they've been on sale, before I even had an Xbox 3+ years ago. So those 2 plus Super Puzzle Fighter make me very happy this week. Hope to see some black friday/cyber monday deals as well, though they weren't listed.

I have only played the first one on the DS, so I really don't know. Maybe this will help?

Puzzle Quest 1 is a much better game, but PQ 2 isn't bad. Check out my Puzzle Quest 2 review for some highly researched comparisons between the two games. The review covers the WP7 version, but it's virtually identical to the console game.

Would have purchased I AM ALIVE if it was 50% off. I am cheap...

I just purchased wreckateer on sale and I enjoyed what I played. Very fun and works well so I highly recommend for FREE. ;)

Surprisingly, yes. Probably 2000 people playing the Texas Heat games at a time, and it's pretty easy to find a tournament, too. But that might be because they released more achievements recently - it was pretty dead before that, from what I hear.

I challenge this. I bought FHP to learn how to play poker. When I started I had no idea how to play and now I'm an average player that understands the rules just fine. I'd still never play IRL because I can't keep a straight face when I'm buying beer and I just turned 29 last week...

As for your other gripes, they are legitimate complaints but I still enjoy the game. When I saw the seasonal achievements at launch I bought the game immediately because I assumed by the time the first sale would roll around those would be unobtainable and I really wanted to play it. So glad I did. I'm just down to the new set of grindy achievements that I can complete at my leisure.

I can see how it would be fun for someone who was new to poker. However, I want to make sure that poker players know what they're getting into.
