Looks like time for me to try out some demos. The only definites for me on the list are Trials Evolution and the OOP add on pack. Even if they are only 100 points off, I've been waiting for any sort of sale on Evolution to pick it up. Also considering:

Fez
Joe Danger 2: The Movie
Mark of the Ninja
Dust: An Elysian Tale
Deadlight
LeedMees (I know absolutely nothing about this one)
the Skyrim expansions.
Will 'watch Family Guy with you and explain the pop culture references you don't understand' for food.

I'm not 100% convinced that 2-5 will be on sale. Part of me thinks that they hope 1 being free will be enough of an impetus for people to buy the rest of them. Not sure though, but definitely seems like a possibility in my mind.

Quick FYI for anyone getting the Walking Dead downloads... if you want to play through episode 3, you have to at least buy and install episode 4 as well. Episode 3 has a game-breaking glitch that was introduced when they tried to patch a problem with the discs :lol: The only solution is to have episode 4 installed. It sounds like a bad joke, but it's not.

Who was asking about those coasters taking a long time to reach the bargain bin again? :)

Oh, so the pricing structure will probably be episode 1 free, episodes 2 and 3 half off, and episode 4 quadruple price :)

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

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?


At least I beat the first 2 of the 4 DLCs.

You know with all this talk of Borderlands 2 DLC I got to say I'm surprised no sale on Mechromancer.

I'm reading the telltale xbox support forums and it seems like a complete mess. People are talking about the disc version being unplayable. Was the game always buggy on digital or was it strictly the disc version? Kinda sucks, I'm looking forward to playing these and wanted it on disc, but that doesnt seem like an option. Now with the sale, i can d/l them, but theres a glitch.

Is it as simple as just having ep.3 and 4 bought and installed to work around the glitch? I haven't seen any solutions on the forums. I'd hate to invest a ton of time and lose it. That happened to me with a Far Cry 2 game breaking save glitch, I lost 24 hours, 82% through the game, and I never finished it. Such a shame, it was one of my favorite games

Mark of the Ninja is the best XBL game of 2012 for me. Get it.

I knew stocking up on 1600 point cards during targets bf sale was a good idea! I've got 7500 points left to blow! Hoping for lots of 4-600 pt prices.

Bastion is such an amazing game, but Dust is really good as well. Can't go wrong with either.

Okay....how the Fuck did The Walking Dead win game of the year!?!?!

Let alone AC3 getting nominated. They must have been smoking crack for nominating those two and giving it to TWD.


seriously cod gets so much hate when ac is also yearly but way worse

Wow, I don't see how there are some people hating on this if it ends up being true...granted we don't know the prices yet to be certain, but this is quite a good selection! I guess having a decent backlog is sometimes a good thing as it makes waiting to download games easier...

I think Microsoft will finally get me for

Jet Set Radio
Mark of the Ninja
Fez
Dust
Maybe Trials Evo
Probably Walking Dead by teasing me with that free first episode.

Looks like I might as well pick up a large points card....

Wow. If most of the sale prices are 50% off, I am going to buy a metric crap ton of XBLA games during this sale. The ones that come up 33% off, I'll probably wait on. That is, except for Fez and Mark of the Ninja, which I'll grab either way.

I guess this sale means I'll have to dust off the ole 360 and grab Mark, the Ninja on the 20th.

30th: Fighting Games

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown
Street Fighter III: Online Edition
Dungeon Fighter LIVE: Fall Of Hendon Myre

This disappoints me. These exact games were on sale just a month or two ago the last time MS had a sale on fighters. And Dungeon Fighter isn't even a fighter! I guess all I can hope is that VF5's DLC goes on sale too, but I guess that isn't very likely.

Nothing in the sale interests me terribly (I'll pick up the free TWD ep, but I may just buy that on PC instead). Ah well, less effort.

Well if TWD is not on sale I will get it through PSN since + members got 1 + 2 for free. I know it will only cost me $15 to play and finish so MS will have to do as well but hopefully better.

From what I've been reading the disc version is far worse as far as stuttering and freezing, even though that existed at times in the digital version. Just not to the game-breaking extent of the disc version.

They'll patch the problems with episode 3, but as of now the only solution is to have episode 4. I'm still buying them all, for what it's worth. I'm almost always a physical media over digital kind of person, but in this situation I think you'd be crazy to get the disc version, even massively discounted.

I guess it's a good thing I finished off episode 3 the day it came out. Somehow procrastinated on ep 4 & 5 so hoping for a good discount to get those.
