what is tropico? Is it a RTS game? I remember seeing it on PC I believe

Kinda like Civilization or Sim City, but you're a dictator trying to run a country.

Hm, when I last checked I saw it at $29.99. The game sound like a lot of fun. I remember I loved playing Sims city back in the days.

Way more Sim City than Civlization. I don't think I would even both those two games in the same category together.

I play bad games

If anyone isn't going to use their code I'd love them forever.

I don't like Godzilla.

There are just so many un-Godzilla like things it should be easy to see why people didn't like it (also the annoying cast). Zilla being killed by missiles was the biggest thing that bothered me Godzilla is supposed to be far stronger than that. The army shouldn't be able to hurt Godzilla unless they are using something like MechaGodzilla or Moguera.

Don't get mad at me for pointing this out, but let's is a contraction for let us. You're looking for the synonym of allows, which is lets.

As fr the co-op mode, it's a largely worthless 2-player alternating mode in which one player takes over when the other player fails and vice versa. More details in our review at Co-Optimus.


haha. considering I typed an essay in a couple of minutes (fast and furious), I think some mistakes are allowable. just like signals get crossed in your head when typing fast, and you type there when you meant they're.

Tropico 4 is actually a pretty fun game. I think I am only going to pick up Modern Times because it appears to be the only one with achievements.

He's right. Looks like Major Nelson posted the upcoming content and here's the four major things I got from it-

1. Kinect Party releases December 18 and is FREE till 12/31

2. Deal of the Week next week is Serious Sam stuff

3. The countdown to 2013 is Dec 18 - Dec 31, so that means 14 DAYS OF DEALS versus 12 we've had in the past

4. THQ weekend sale Dec 14 - Dec 17

Thanks for your thoughts on this. Probably the first time I've heard anyone claim that AC1 was better in any way than the sequel. I appreciated the first one for similar reasons as well, though Altair took some time to grow on me, by the end I was really into the story and philosophy behind it. Still, I'll get to AC2 (and Brotherhood, and Revelations, and 3) at some point...


To add another interesting view on which is better -- my wife actually thought AC1 was more interesting to watch me play, since she liked the exploration and flag collection better than the actual assassinating.

So... Countdown to 2013 starting on the 18th, Tropico 4 DOTW this week, Serious Sam DOTW next week, an upcoming THQ weekend sale, and Kinect Party for free from the 18th to the end of the year. Interesting.

Part of me wants to bite on some or all of the Tropico 4 DLC just because I feel like it'll be quite some time before it's marked down again, but on the other hand I've never even played Tropico, so I don't know that I'd like it...

Serious Sam 3 is tempting; I do have it on Steam but also probably won't have a worthwhile gaming PC for quite some time. We'll see how the countdown deals look I guess.

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

Happy Action Theatre is the best implementation of Kinect that there is. That is both a compliment to Double Fine and a criticism of Kinect.

Kinect Party looks to be an improvement, but more of the same (which is a good thing). I am assuming it's free because there may be future DLC. I agree Happy Action Theatre is great for young children (still a neat novelty for adults) and the best Xbox Live Arcade purchase I have ever made. It's saying a lot when my three year old stays interested in it for more than just a few minutes. I would pay a decent amount for DLC because of that.

This makes me extremely happy. I almost bought the DLC the other week. I love the Tropico games. I was hoping there would be a sale since Tropico 4 Gold Edition came out last month.

Im jumping in with the happiness for the free Kinect Party due to Happy Action Theatre. A lot of the Kinect games can't really read kids well, even if they are made directly for kids (I'm looking at you Kinectimals and Disneyland Adventures!). But Double Fine has made a great game here.

Probably skipping this week since I'm waiting to get Tropico 4 Gold Ed (when its on sale of course), but I'm really looking forward to next week.

Serious Sam 3 on sale next week, and the dlc also.
This should have been the price when released.
For the THQ sale, anybody think some wwe 13 dlc could go on sale or the pass?

Nuthin for me this week, looks like my huge stockpile of points will remain. Hopefully we get a few worthy deals on the Countdown to New Years sale.

In looking around for potential candidates for the THQ weekend sale, I stumbled upon the Voltron XBLA page which no longer gives the option to purchase. Possible delisting?

Probably not a huge loss, but I would have purchased it had the price dropped low enough..... I'm still bummed about Kung Fu Strike though.

Gimme 75% off the You Don't Know Jack packs I missed during the last THQ sale and throw in some discounted Space Marine DLC, and I will be A-OK.

For those that don't know, Tropico 4 Gold was released not too long ago. It has the DLC on disc so you have that option.

Man, I sure hope I'm lucky enough to see Risk on sale. I wanted to buy that game when it was last on sale about 2 days ago, but the rock on my cave was sealed shut and I couldn't get out.

Actually, they can't even remove it from your purchase history unless for some strange reason, neither the publisher nor Microsoft bear the rights to distribute that item to original purchasers ... and we can't see that happening for a Halo 4 Map Pack, can we? You went through the transaction in good faith that you were paying "0 MSP" for the item, so that's what you & Microsoft have agreed upon as the price.


not sure about that. according to my friend, there are some kinect fun lab apps that have mysteriously disappeared from her purchase history when she tried to redownload them and they're no longer in the marketplace.

Depends if they're apps, full games, or DLC. In the case of Kinect Labs, there may very well be some that didn't work well or just plain bug-ridden ... but I'm fairly certain Sparkler will be there, since it's a paid app. Labs is a bad example, since so many of the applets were free ...
