$42.50 for Skyrim and the two DLCs.

Hmm, might just get the DLC and keep an eye out for Skyrim on Amazon Warehouse Deals.

If you don't mind having digital you can get a download code off eBay for around $20.

I didn't realize it was just 400 to begin with. Just looked that up.

Also, don't like this (from a review):



Can you at least place weapons/armor you find around the house? And books, potions, etc? I seem to remember doing that quite extensively in Morrowind at least (even putting things on shelves).

But I'll definitely buy it if it goes lower than 400 points. I mean, if it goes to 200, that is a great price. Obviously I'll hold off if it doesn't go on sale at all.


Yes, you can place weapons/armor around the house. There are mannequins, bookshelves, weapon racks, etc. There are also rooms dedicated to them such as the armory and library that you can choose to build.

I'd suggest not using the glass display cases though. I lost a damn dragon priest mask by leaving it in one of those.

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

Stfu and get off the thread.

Is Dragonborn on sale?

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Trials HD dlc #2 - 200

If you don't have Peggle, get it + the dlc for 600 total. I thought it was dumb at first, but I've now beaten it twice (once on iPad, again on Xbox) and it is amazing.

Episode 5: No Time Left
Counter-Strike: GO
Wrecked Revenge Revisited
Naughty Bear Panic in Paradise

Deadlight
Mark of the Ninja
HELL YEAH! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit
Fez
RAW
Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition
Joe Danger 2: The Movie
Sugar, Spice and Not So Nice
It Came From Outer Space

Cost to me 0: Zero... Free points from MS's recent Instore Bing promotion :)

I started playing wreckateer, and I recommend that to anyone with some left over points. It's Kinect only, but its like controlling an angry bird and hitting castles. It also has avatar famestar for anyone interested in that.

Just Walking Dead, Rock Band Blitz and Serious Sam 3 for me.

They need to run promos like this year round. Between games, DLC & avatar shit, they have enough content to pull it off.

I only bought the rest of the Walking Dead Episodes (3-5) and Bully: Scholarship Edition. It's been a week now and I still can't download Bully: SE. Not sure what's up with that, but Microsoft needs to fix it.

You need to start the download on Bully and then power down you XBOX immediately and it will download while off, worked for me.

I have Background downloads turned on, and this still won't work. Anything else you had to do?

i just started it and turned it off quickly before the screen saying it couldn't download popped up, all I can say is make sure you turn it off as quick as you can and that I used the X on the controller (holding it down) instead of the button on the front of the console if that makes a difference.

I'm reading that the "bully" issues are related to the ISP ATT. Is this true?

Dust is probably the best game I've bought on Xbox live. I am really enjoying it.

It's pretty impressive when you know that one dude was behind it, not a team like usual.
