A World of Keflings: Sugar, Spice and Not So Nice - Current Price: 320
A World of Keflings: It Came From Outer Space - Current Price: 320

20th: Platformer Games (I think these will be 30% off due to how new they are, hope I am wrong though)
Mark of the Ninja - Current Price: 1200
Trine 2 - Current Price: 1200

22nd: TBA

23rd: Summer of Arcade 2012 Games (I think these will be 30% off due to how new they are, hope I am wrong though)

Deadlight - Current Price: 1200

26th: TBA

28th: The Walking Dead

If 50% off: 3920...thankful for the Target point sale for sure...but that is still a lot of points.....

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Cool, glad I waited on Mark of the Ninja and Dust: An Elysian Tail. I'll pick those up and maybe some Games On Demand if the prices are right. I think I have about $70 in points so I should be good to go.

Not a bad list. I recently got about 6000 points from the Gamestop glitch and I'm glad I held onto it. I'll definitely pick up Dust and a few GoD titles. Too bad the Dragonborn DLC isn't on sale, but I think I'll pick that up on the PC version anyway.

I will buy all the Walking Deads. ALL OF THEM. And maybe the Borderlands 2 season pass, as I'm concerned my Argentinian friend may fail to deliver in the future.

Just wanted to know what the GS glitch was, love hearing stuff like that.

Also

For TWD episode 1, is it free to play in those days or free to purchase for 0 points to keep?

There were selling two 1200 point games for $10 each (I think it was Worms and something else), but instead of the games you just got the points. So basically you could get $15 in points for $10. It went on for a few hours until they fixed it.

I spent $50 and got $75 worth of MS points to spend during their holiday sales. Not a bad deal when you consider how rarely MS points go on sale, especially if you sped the points on sale items and get a double discount.

Boo on the BL2 season pass being on sale. Bought it day 1 and still have played either of the first 2 DLC haha.

Skyrim dlc being on sale is tempting, but Ill hold out for the GOTY version with all the DLC since I already played through the main game then traded in.

Cag user deidara likes to weasel his way into free review codes for games that he then sells on here. He never reviews the games.

Excited for Sonic Adventure 2 and all the LEGO games! I'm hoping some of them are 400 MSP but 800 seems more likely.

Borderlands season pass deal already? Damn. Oh well. Lesson learned for BL3.


Heh, same. And I told myself I learned the lesson on BL1 when I bought all the DLC at release and ended up spending well over $100 on the game in all. Then I got BL2 at launch, have been loving the hell out of it, decided to get the season pass thinking at the earliest it would go on sale in the summer, then I see Gearbox is trickling out all kinds of DLC that isn't part of the season pass. I love that game, but boy, they milk the franchises about as hard as humanly possible. My teets are raw.

Sonic Adventure 2 at 400 would be sweeeet. Here's hoping for a decent price on Rayman Origins as well.

Some of these sales look pretty good. But i'd REALLY like to see a sale on Minecraft. I'd pick that up for $10. They think their sales are great now? Think about what they'd sell if they sold it for $10 for 24 hours.

Really glad Microsoft is trying to make up for their lackluster Halloween and Holiday (so far) specials, but I'll pass on what is offered. Haven't purchased any games of the week (or DLC) for a long, long time. Holding out hope for a better New Year's deal. Anybody remember if there was a kick-ass end of year sale a couple years ago? I seem to recall one...

And to think, I was just about to plunk down the cash for Mark of the Ninja. Gotta love being a CAG. I would buy the Walking Dead, but I gotta see what Sony is doing with PS Plus for the holidays since they had put the first two episodes up eariler in the year. I wish Karateka was on sale. That game is very fun.

Phew....I was literally one click away from buying the Trials HD and Evo DLC the other day.

But I figured I should wait a few days to see if they were on the holiday discount list. Glad to see they are.

Are the Banjo Kazooie / Tooie games considered games on demand? I've wanted those games for the longest but 1200 is way too much for me.

I knew I should have waited on Borderlands Season Pass. It is exactly like how Gear of War 3 ended up last year. I would guess it will be 1800 points. I think that is what the sale was last year. Unless you are waiting on a GOTY I recommend the Season pass. 1st two dlcs are great. Was considering Walking Dead on disc but if you can get digital version for $10? Then I will bite (no pun intended).

If by other dlc you are referring to previous dlc that was exclusive to gamestop pre-orders and collectors editions then yes they are milking. Otherwise one might say they are offering dlc you should not get at prices (400 points) WAY below what Ebay was selling them at.

Interested in Dust: Elysian Tail. I really enjoyed the demo, so I'm glad to see a price drop on this soon :) Thanks OP! Might actually be interested in some of the Lego titles too.
