*sigh* is the Mass Effect dlc never going to go on sale again?

Probably around the time they put the next one out sometime next year. They supposedly have "all" their best writers on that last piece of DLC.

Hmm surprised there is nothing for me this year, I'm usually all over these sales. Maybe I'll get Skyrim Hearthfire or Fez...

Might have to use some of those Black Friday microsoft points on The Walking Dead, especially if the first episode is free.

I am going to spend way, way too many points during this sale.

Kudos to Microsoft for putting some quality stuff on sale for year end.

Dust is phenomenal BTW.

This sale has a lot I'm interested in, but I wonder how much of it will go 50% or more off... I'd love Fez, Mark of Ninja, a few of the Games on Demand, and some of the DLC listed. I also need the final Walking Dead episode! Here's hoping for prices I'm willing to pay!

Rats. I've been doing Bing searches, saving up my shekels for Mass Effect 3 DLC and Dragon Age 2 DLC. I'm not feeling EA in this sale at all......



I'm feeling the same with the Dragon Age 2 DLC. I remember only seeing it on sale once before. For this sale though I'll be picking up Mark of the Ninja and Dust.

Not to be skeptical, but what is the source of this? I can't seem to find any other news about this sale in a quick search. I don't want to get excited about BL2 season pass without good reason :)

Edit: did some more probing, found this:
http://www.neogaf.co...ad.php?t=503957

...which contains links to what appear to be sale pages (without sale prices, of course). Dates are confirmed in the individual links.

Can anyone comment on Rayman 3 HD? Origins was probably my favorite game of 2011, and I'm anxiously awaiting Legends. Origins was my first Rayman game, is 3 worth grabbing?


Completely different style of game. Rayman 3 is a 3D platformer, and was not directed by series creator Michel Ancel. It's supposed to be a pretty competent game, but lacks the creativity of Rayman 2, often regarded as Ancel's masterpiece.

I really enjoyed Origins as well, but it's a totally different beast from the Rayman games that preceded it. The closest thing is the original Rayman, a 2D platformer like Origins, and even that has a verrrrry different feel.

Looks the 20th will be an expensive day. Fez, Trine 2 and Mark of the Ninja probably, depending on prices.

So if the other Walking Dead episodes are listed will they be offered at a discounted price since the first will be free?

Nice sale! Finally! Hopefully Microsoft comes through with the prices and they are at least be 50% off or more.

If they are, I'll be grabbing Mark of the Ninja, Dust and the Skyrim DLCs.

Thanks OP. Was waiting for a Dust sale.

I'm real curious to see what the games on demand sales will be.

Looks like the 20th is the day for me - gonna pick up either Fez or Mark of the Ninja, possibly both depending on price. Which is considered to be the better of the two?


Mark of the Ninja is way better than Fez.

Also, not sure this thread is necessary, since this is all in the XBox Live thread OP

I knew I should have waited to get Mark of the Ninja and Dawnguard, but I was too impatient! I do have to say though, Bethesda...just man the frock up and put Dragonborn on sale too!

Oh, and this sale is why I rarely buy the SoA games during the summer anymore. They always go on sale at the end of the year...

Well it looks like MS learned their lesson from that crap holiday sale last year! Man this is overwhelming! Its a festivous miracle!

How much are the walking dead episodes normally, 800? Even with one free and the others at 400 points thats still 1600!

Fez, mark of the ninja, and the borderlands pass if it's cheap enough... And then theres all the maybe stuff that I've heard about but aren't familiar to me like Dust etc...
