So might just be me being lazy or not looking hard enough but they're going to be having a 10 year anniversary sale. I'm not sure if there is a list anywhere yet but it's at least confirmed that Castle Crashers will be half off from the Behemoth blog. Get Hype to a degree.


It's hard to get hyped. I mean, who doesn't have Castle Crashers that wants it? I fear this will be a "classic arcade games through the years" type sale that no one still needs to purchase. I hope I'm wrong though. But that japanese list was disappointing.

Wondering what time the Japanese Marketplace gets updated, seeing as they're X amount of hours ahead of the rest ofd us?

I picked up Catan from this DOTW, lots of buddies still play it online. heres hoping for some better deals week of BF and CM. Tomorrow looks like a drag. Any thoughts on Section 8 Prejudice? i played the Retail version for awhile and liked it. Seems tempting at 600MSP.

It's funny because that definitely just un-hyped me. That goes a long way towards confirming that the Japanese sale list is going to be the same one we get here.

I think you're right. That Japanese list is just filled with games that have been on sale plenty of times before. I guess Wreckateer for free is better than nothing, but does very little for those of us without a Kinect.

Or bought it for 400 points a few weeks ago.

Well, at least we didn't buy it during the Summer of Arcade promo. So...there's that silver lining?

Indeed...

Btw I was checking a few demos earlier, like PQ1, PQ2, Puzzle Fighter, Catan, Magic the Gathering etc

I think PQ1 is awesome, however I can't say the same for PQ2.
I have Carcassonne already and I think it's brilliant!
Also, I'm a Magic the Gathering noobcake so I guess I will skip these games.
Eventually I might buy one (the latest) but not atm.
I had no idea about Catan until I played the demo and I'm not really sure if I like it. I will give it another chance tomorrow. I think it was a bit complicated for my taste (or maybe it was my mood).
Puzzle fighter = insta buy.

I will need pls some advice from CAGs familiar with the game on whether I should (or not) buy the Section 8 Prejudice DLC.

"Each map is playable in both multiplayer and offline play for all game modes."

So how this quote translates to single player game? Is there any single player mission or something? Mind that I mostly play this game offline, even though it's short I enjoyed it a lot!

Catan is a must buy. It is by far (like 5-10x the next closest) my most played game of this generation. Between my profile and my wife's profile I have played about 2000 online games, each taking about a half hour. I have also played about 300 single player games. I used to play it so much that when I closed my eyes all I would see would be resource cards.

Hey all ... I'm in the wiki OP, so please stay out until I update this post.

I'm happy enough ... let the trolling for frequent updates begin! :lol:

Attention to Spylon ... left you a message on xbldb.com, but the Wreckateer link is currently 404'd. Not a big deal, since the price is so low, but thought you'd want to fix next time you're in the underlying DB. Thanks!

Something's wrong. I spent 1200 points for Bully Scholarship Edition. When I try to download it, it says it can't be downloaded. So now I'm out 1200 points and no game. What can I do about it?

It was 600 points last holiday season. I'd highly recommend it at that price though.

If you're passing on one of the best XBLA games ever at 600, what are you saving your points for?

Because of Microsoft giving away yet ANOTHER free Kinect XBLA title, I am OFFICIALLY boycotting the purchase of ANY Kinect titles from that service. I've bought nearly every one just days or weeks before they give it out for free. I'm pretty pissed right now... Off to work!

It was, yes. It's worth 600msp for sure, but keep in mind it's extremely repetitive game with not much variety. It looks pretty damn good tho, and excellent narrator saves the game. ;)
Not even close to the best XBLA games IMO.

No joke. It's like every other day, bam! A new free Kinect game.

Wait, that doesn't happen. How silly of me.

Hmmm, Wreckateer can be played with a pad, or is only kinect compatible?

It's Kinect-only, hence the Kinect banner on the cover art.

I interviewed the devs of Wreckateer a while back, in case anyone is interested. They've also done SF 3 and Marvel vs. Capcom: Origins for Capcom. Iron Galaxy Studios interview

Thanks for the quick reply. Yeah, I noticed the Kinect part of the box art, but it also says Arcade. After all, I could play Dragon's Lair with my pad (and also states it's a Kinect game).

Anyways, for that price I will download it, obviously.

Looks like it's the same sale Japan got, which is kind of disappointing (though free games are always nice).

Check here or on the dashboard to download a gamer pic for a chance to win one of those Xbox Live 10th anniversary systems (you get 2 entries if you're a Xbox Rewards member).

Bought Catan finally; even though it cuts you off before you can win or lose a game I've never played a demo version of a game as much as I have Catan. Downloading the Carcassonne demo to try a 2nd time, not really sold on it yet, it seems a little confusing in the demo (mostly I was never sure where to put my little people tokens).
