Wow. I couldn't disagree more. Bastion is fantastic in every aspect; gameplay, story, visuals, and OMG that soundtrack. It's worth every penny.

I'm with you. I loved every moment of that game. And I listen to the soundtrack in my car all the time. I guess it's just not for everyone.

BF1943 is one of my favorite online shooters. Very easy to pick up and play.

I hear people getting emails from them and getting stuff, but i get an email like that and i get nothing.

Love me some Carcassone and Catan. Catan makes me sad since there are hardly any players online and they tend to drop out when they are losing.


No penalty for dropping out?

I might have to go with carcassone then

The people who have received stuff got the same email not specifically saying they were gonna get anything. So you still got a chance at something. How about a 10-year Anniversary faceplate?

The only reason I would tell you NOT to pick up "Bastion" this week is because it is an unbelievably beautiful game from a very small team of not-particularly-wealthy developers. My suggestion is to buy it now, and then give another $5 directly to Supergiant Games (so they don't have to split that cash with Microsoft). "Bastion" is about as good a game- not an XBLA game, any game- as you're likely to find. It's fun, it's well-designed, it's interesting, it's sad, it's exciting, and it's worth paying full-price for. Not that a million people or so haven't said the exact same thing, and not that you're going to trust some random stranger on CAG, but those are my two cents.

I appreciated your two cents, thanks for the input. I pulled the trigger on the game soon after originally posting. Hopefully others did too so the developers see at least a bit of scratch from the sale. I am really looking forward to playing it.:)

Well, I sure as hell did NOT understand all the fapping to Guardian Heroes on here.

Played the demo on release and didn't enjoy it and then deleted it, downloaded and then played it AGAIN when it went on sale because of all of the hype in here thinking just maybe I missed something, nope, and deleted it again. Since it was almost unanimously loved in here I expect to receive flak for that and I don't care. I don't see what was so special about it.

I bought Bastion the first time it went on sale and it was the only time I ever I actually felt bad about not giving the developer the full price because the games quality deserves it. It's worth 600 JUST for its god-tier soundtrack.

Opinions.

P.S. In for the Wreckateer for free because why not?

How many fanboys does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

10, 1 to do it & 9 to complain how much better the 1st one was.

Hey, I really like Guardian Heroes and I'd be the first to tell you that it's weird as hell and if it doesn't click with you in the first couple of levels it never will.

Heh, I'm experiencing the exact same thing with Puzzle Quest.

I did notice one of the achievements requires you to win a match online.... and online is completely dead. Anyone want to help me out? Obviously, I will return the favor so you can get the achievement as well.

I'll help. I think I need it too. Either way, should only take a couple of minutes.

So, pass on Catan? I haven't bought any XBLA games in a while, considering Magic (which is better, if I get 2012, is there a point to getting the original?), Catan, maybe Bastion (I need to check gameplay videos, I don't know much about it), and I Am Alive next week.

The only thing that was missing from Magic 2012 from the original that I really missed was the removal of the two headed giant co op campaign. It was replaced with a 3v1 campaign which kinda makes up for it but doesnt feel nearly as fun due to you having to have a computer player with you on your team to make it work. I really liked the 2v2 campaign in the original since it was a lot of fun couch co-op.

I still tout Catan as a solid pickup for fans of tabletop strategy. I haven't played online in a few months due to allowing my Gold account to lapse but I never had trouble finding people to play Catan online with before that. I played it online VERY frequently in the spring and summer of this year and found online players regularly. I should mention that many players were playing in the ranked games as opposed to the casual ones, the achievements influence this I'm sure. Also, the game has an international following so I often found myself playing with users from Europe and Australia. This was nice as it allowed play at all times of day and night. In addition, there may be a minor influx of online players as a result of it being on sale. The game is still pretty good solo as well, playing against three hard AI can yield a decent challenge.

Went ahead and picked up the original Magic the gathering. Feels faster paced than number 2 (maybe it's just the music) and it seemed like there were different cards (I've unlocked almost all of them in 2012).

Debating on puzzle quest 2...definitely getting 1 as I've been waiting a while.

May get Catan as I passed last time due to low points but did enjoy it.

I'm surprised how much people still playing Battlefield 1943. Trial version was tons of fun and bought the game. :)
