Anyone think that I Am Alive will go 50% off with the Ubisoft sale?


No

Oh, you and your reviews. I occasionally stop to take a peek but more often than not you just leave me wondering why I didn't chase that game journalism dream, one of the more feasible ideas I ever had.


Aww. Well, it's never too late to get into it, assuming you have the time to write. I do find it highly rewarding, even if I have a tendency to bite off more than I chew by committing to review numerous games in a short time period.

Great review and couldn't agree more.


Thanks man! :D

Because they haven't got around to Alpha 2 yet.

Stop wasting your money on videogames and sign up at prizerebel! Just do some simple and short surveys and in a couple of weeks time, you'll have enough credit to buy a $60 release! Or PSN/Xbox credit. Why pay money to fund your hoarding addiction when you can do it for freeeee!!!

Doubt it considering it sold rather well at full price. Plus it was just on sale last week.

Oh i think we can skip Alpha and Alpha 2 ... Though an alpha compilation would be beast mode.

Id literally kill my younger sister for CvS, CvS2, and SvC on XBLA

I have entirely too much time to write. Maybe I should start game blogging and work my way up, even if only for my own entertainment.

This stoner dreams of an XBLA where Battletoads is sold. And not pre-ordered.

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

One of the WayForward devs was open to the idea of adding the Battletoads as DLC to Double Dragon Neon.

And while people are pestering Microsoft and Rare about Battletoads, they should also be sure to mention Jet Force Gemini.

Wow, it never dawned on me that Battletoads is technically an MS franchise now. All these years and only now do I realize this? Looks like I brought it up in just the right place.

All that being said, now that I realize who owns it, I have even less confidence that it will ever be revived.

...I do not enjoy competitive games against people, just co-op or man vs programming. Been that way for a long time.

Although there are some games that I like to play against others, I also tend to enjoy co-op gaming more. I love the "man vs programming" term you used. I've never heard or seen that used before, I may find it entering my own vocabulary.

Anyone think that I Am Alive will go 50% off with the Ubisoft sale?

It would be nice but like others have said, I doubt it.

That would've been AWESOME, considering there was already a past Double Dragon/Battletoads crossover. Though I'm still waiting for them to add that patch for online play.

& I wouldn't mind a XBLA port of Jet Force Jemini.

It was 800msp, that's why a lot of us didn't buy it. I know I'm hoping for it to be knocked down to 600 this time.


Whiff on my behalf. Might explain why I didn't get it either. ;-) Knew I was holding off for some reason...

I am looking forward to the 12 days of XMAS sales!! WOO!!!

I am sad that Doritos Unlock Xbox stopped doing their contests. They did two, two years apart and was hoping to see one this year. I enjoyed the games created.

I bought all 3 Sega Model 2 fighters games just for old times sake, and didn't realize they are ridiculously easy 400/400 games!!! 8-)

Chuck Norris won the 1983 world series of poker despite him holding just a joker, a 2 of clubs, a 7 of spades, and a green number 4 from Uno and a monopoly 'get out of jail free' card.

Yeah apparently you can get 400/400 in Sonic the Fighters in 5-7 minutes. Even Daytona USA took half an hour.

Is it sad that I'm considering buying it now just for the easy 400?

LOL. I won't buy them even in a sale. But I'm glad many people will buy them just for the achievements, that way maybe SEGA will considerer releasing Fighters Megamix (that I would buy for 400MSP, gladly).

Me too. In the meantime, that previous post compelled me to play Daytona USA for about 10 minutes. Sure enough, 5/12 achievements right there...

VF2 is perfect on XBLA. The graphics, music and timing (important!) are spot on. I could play with my eyes shut using muscle memory!!

Easy 400G you say? I'm tempted. Oh so tempted. The fact that they're only 400 makes it an even harder deal to resist.

When accessing the "Sales & Specials App" on the console to play the daily "non-winning" scratch off.....afterwards when you try to go back to the home page, does anyone else's Xbox freeze up like mine does ? It doesn't happen everytime, but it's been a constant thing I've dealt with since this app hit the console.
Would've been nice if it's a known issue, if MS would have addressed it.

Thank Gamers.

It's happened to me a couple times. That App has been slow and buggy from day one. On the other hand, I won a free alien mask for my doll avatar using that App. So there's that. :???:

Is Burnout Crash any good? I read some reviews and they all said the game play is solid but the in game sounds are really annoying.

Is it too late to get the "sales and specials" app?

It currently not in the home area of my dashboard nor anywhere else on the dashboard. Also wasn't in the apss area when I tried searching for it.

In this video it is located near the bottom right of the home area



but for me it shows "Free Gold Weekend" in its place.

The S&S app has always had issues for me too. Although it has only completely locked up a few time it ALWAYS takes FOREVER to enter and exit it. Sometimes I don't even bother using it for the scratch and match because it's so slow. I suppose I would have more incentive if I had won something by now. Oh well, it is free and sometimes you get what you pay for.

Love how Konami releases Silent Hill HD Collection for GoD while they publicly acknowledged the game having some severe issues and won't patch it. Arrogance at It's finest.

I think if you just browse games in the marketplace its under 'most downloaded' or something. 99% sure i've seen it there a few times.
