For anybody on the fence about the Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC Sale, buy it now. The Arrival DLC for Mass Effect 2 was only on sale once, and if you missed it, too bad.

I picked up the Raven Strike DLC and Leviathan from the one day sale. I'm hoping Microsoft puts up Dragon Age 2 DLC or more Mass Effect 3 DLC on sale later this year.


All in for ME3 DLC, but will Bioware release a Dragon Age 2 Ultimate Edition?. I hope so, DA:O UE was/is a fantastic deal.

Where does the ad say its good until tomorrow @ 11pm?


Other than some of the red-background Doorbusters and green-background Friday-only stuff, the entire ad pricing is good until they close Saturday at 11pm. (Back cover: "Advertised Sale Prices Good November 22-24, 2012")

This deal is forcing my hand to get The Walking Dead digital rather than waiting for the disc to release :oldman:

You still can! Do it! It's good until tomorrow @ 11pm. I'm not sure which cards ring up right, I only saw some at the register section with the avatar girl on it, but most everyone says they ring up $10 automatically.

If Target gives you any grief just grab an ad and go to Wal-mart. I brought 3 of the avatar-girl cards to the electronics section register with the Target ad and they PM'd it no problem. $30 OTD.

I'm so tempted to buy more, there's so many out there! Who can say no to a 50% off everything sale? Not this guy :)

Thanks, managed to get 2. They rang up at 19.99 but I managed to get the guy to adjust it to $10 each.

Wanted to get at least 5 but I didn't feel like talking to the guy again.

I'd just like to weigh in after owning Magic 12 for a year and playing the original...Magic 13 sucks! Bad! F this game. I hate that you can't go back and check what the planes card said. I just lost an hour long match because I selected the wrong card thinking it said whatever cards you targeted would be destroyed....

That is all.

It was weird, I went in at 11 pm last night and picked up 8 cards, 5 for my father-in-law and 3 for me and they rung up at $10. I decided I wanted a couple more so I went and got two more but they rung up at $20. I still was able to get it, but that was just weird. Anyways, I think I'm going to pull the trigger on some of these sales.

Quantum Conundrum for $3.75 seems about right so far. I'm about an hour in and while it is good, I think if it had another 6 months to cook it could have been great. Wonky controls and the graphics and settings aren't anything to get excited about. The puzzles are very clever so far which is all I wanted...

After looking at reviews I picked up Bully. Open world games are one of my favorite genres.

Wish I could get msp that cheap but Australia never has big sales on msp

When I lived in Australia I used to buy Instant Delivery 1600MSP cards for US$16 from US online stores and activate them on a US gamertag - roughly half what Australians have to pay! Now that the £ has taken a sharp dip, though, UK online stores seem to be fairly attractive. ;) I got 2000 points from Shopto.net yesterday for £12.85 (US$20, not including cashback and store points), which may be more attractive as they should redeem on an Oztralien gamertag.

any deals for a physical copy of Left 4 Dead 2? Amazon doesnt carry it anymore, its selling for over $30. Will $20 digital copy be the best deal??

Awesome guy at Target didn't even realize the 1600 points cards were printed as 10, was cool enough to override the price for me to get a few cards. :D

Figured this would be a good spot to ask. For Minecraft, what would you say the chances are of it ever going on sale. Have a lot of points to play with right now, so tempted to pick it up.

Minecraft is the best selling thing ever released on XBLA, I highly doubt it's dropping in price or being featured in a sale any time soon.

grabbed Magic 2013 for $5. Been wanting this to play with a few friends that used to play magic with. I see them online all the time playing 2013.

Is the expansion worth $2.50?

Accurate jumping in 1st person is not fun in any way, especially since it's hard to tell exactly how far you can jump. That's probably why I didn't enjoy the demo for Mirror's Edge.

It's not enough to ruin the game for me (they haven't been bad too far), but it's frustrating trying to beat the time or shift limit and fail because you jumped too far or too short, let alone lose a life because you were over a bottomless pit. Once I play more of the game, I think my opinion will change, either for the better or worse.

Just curious - how are you guys price matching the points against the ad? It only shows 3 months of live for $10; where are you seeing the points for that price?

Yes just because it's Magic the Gathering.

Can anyone recommend the Ghost Recon FS DLC? I just got the game for cheap on Microsoft's website and am trying to decide if I should grab the DLC or not.

Funny you should mention that - my son has been playing the demo for weeks now. I told him I'd get him the full version BEFORE I looked at the price - $20.00.

Ouch. Too bad Target is out of cards - $10.00 would be a lot easier on dad's wallet. ;)

It seems like some of the ads had a picture of the points cards and others had the three-months-of-Live card. IIRC the points card was shown on page six.

I read that very often in regards to Spelunky, it almost seems like a 2D cutey platform version of Dark Souls... I've played and loved many roguelikes in the past (Izuna, Shiren and 100 Rogues above all), so I'm curious enough to jump on the sale wagon and grab it while I can! :bouncy:


I assure you it is the best buy you can do, those who are undecided read this article to save myself write a lot.

http://www.gamasutra...hp#.ULDww4ZFmvt

Two days ago I finished the Hell (+150 hours) and I'm so happy and you were the only person in quote my post that I will make you a proposal, if you decide to buy Spelunky and finish the game (real finish, Hell level) I'll give you 200 MSP (making the game will cost you 400 MSP) a very small reward for such a great feat.

I don't know you and don't know how good player you can be but I make this proposal almost sure that the money will never be claimed.

Minecraft is the best selling XBLA game of all time and that's with it also being one of the most expensive. I doubt it goes on sale for a very long time.

I'd say buy it now. I have put more hours into that $20 game than 99% of retail games.

Just tried the demo of "I Am Alive", and while interesting, it's not a must buy for me. I'll wait for an even bigger discount in the future to consider purchasing it.

Quantum Conundrum is a quality game for $7.50. The biggest annoyance is definitely the first-person platforming, it's not way too bad for trying to beat a level, but I expect trying to beat the level under the par time, it will cause a decent amount of cursing.
