Of course all this is my opinion but I just finished Deadlight and I absolutely HATED the game...
... I actually liked the story that was there and I could have forgiven some of the clunky mechanics and response times but combined with the level designs they just blew balls...
...plus times when the ceiling just decides it is going to cave in on you.


Everyone always talks about the ceiling caving in with no reason, but due to erratic controls I can't even get past these bogus helicopter chase areas. I, too, really loved the story and the theme and was happy to pick this up during Black Friday week. After plowing through the first couple hours, I completely gave up and haven't looked back yet; when I can die 20x in a single level, that's when I forfeit.

On another note, I hit 100,000 GamerScore yesterday. Pretty crazy! I've had my 360 since May 2006.


Congrats on your 100K!

I finally tried Rhythm Party and then headed to the Sales & Specials + app, and gladly lost. Bought it for 400 points. Definitely seems worth it. If you like Elite Beat Agents, and aren't opposed to Kinect, I think you'll like it. Not that it has the humor part, but the gameplay is great. The only weird thing is I seemed to need to redownload the game to get the unlocked version. It wasn't making any progress on the download from within the S&S+ app, and when I quit out the download wasn't running. Had to go to my download history and then redownload the entire game.

Thanks for the messages everyone! The crazy part is my completion percentage is just under 50% meaning I've played a shitload of games. I was in college when I got my 360 and rented a bunch of games through GameFly back in the day. There are many I haven't even gotten to.


@ooga I got your message and cleared a spot on my Friends List. I'm about to get some sleep but will be on around 5pm Pacific tonight or we can schedule a time for tomorrow to do the Madden Arcade cheevos.

I really hope we get a sale on the Dragon Age II DLC and Fallout NV DLC again before their sequels come out. I think one of the DAII packs never went on sale and I'm missing one FNV pack that I forgot during a previous sale.

From what i remember this game was removed few days after release, wtf? I was going to wait for a sale, ah well. :roll:

Bought most of the old 400msp Atari games, except Asteroids, which seems most broken of them all. I think it wouldn't take too long until they disappear as well.


Bummer! Now I feel less bad about forgetting to review it, heh. Maybe I'll ping the PR person and ask what happened.

Cleaner7, great job! I hit 100K just before New Year's. I usually sit around 53% completion... It would be much higher if I didn't have to play new games every week.

Anyone think Dragonborn for Skyrim will be 1/2 off the first week of February to match the deal Sony will have for it?


I'm thinking not. I think the discount is the developer's way of apologizing, so it would minimize the apology if Xbox got it too.

btw Another delisted game - Yar's Revenge - http://marketplace.x...15-d80258410aa1

Got really cheap code from cag member last year, but still haven't played it yet.


Damn, really wish I had bought that when it was on sale... Not that I need another game in my backlog, but it's disappointing nonetheless.

Anyone know if THQ will have a DLC/XBLA fire sale soon?

Won't happen. Ever.


Sure ... we've had sales on "Saints Row The Third" DLC a little while ago ... you won't see "everything" on sale, though, because all assets are currently locked down in preparation for the big auction of "intellectual property" happening this week.

BTW, added links to RDR's price lookups here at CAG, since I just noticed RDR-GOTY is as cheap as $22.74 at Walmart with "free ship to store".

Bought the Sleeping Dogs DLC, and I'd say Nightmare In North Point is really only worth it for the achievements. It's extremely short (5 missions I think?), and there's not much there in the way of side quests. And even then it's only beat up on a group of vampires or kill a demon. Not to say it's "bad" per say, but it feels Saints Row-ish in terms of value for your money.


See, this is why you get a link to GiantBomb's "First Look" ... you were warned. :D

After spending 3 minutes with Hole in the Wall I regret spending 200 points on it. Horrible.

Again, the gameplay video was provided, for better or for worse ... you were warned. :D

You can remove games with 0 achievements from counting against you I think.

I wasn't complaining myself, since I mainly bought it for the achievements (and I still have Target points, so that was a non-issue). It was more posted for other people that may be on the fence.

I stream on Twitch. At least two times a week. http://www.twitch.tv/jstryker416

That's right. It usually works but some games are still appearing. To remove, go to your achievement list and press X for the game with 0 GS.

My completion was screwed by my early gaming sessions. I got 1 achievement each on Chromehounds and Tenchu Z and will never touch them again. The sad part is the Chromehounds' cheevo was for utterly sucking and not getting any kills in the 1-2 online matches I played. They shutdown those servers not long after. I also have some fighting games like DOA4 and Soul Caliber IV with online achievements. Throw in Quake IV, GRAW, and a few other early 360 games and there's no hope.

@eastx I was trying to hit 100K before New Years too but ended up busier than anticipated. Congrats to you too!

Is there still no word on when the Rockstar sale w/ Max Payne 3 DLC will happen?

Mark of the Assassin never went on sale that I'm aware of and Legacy only went on sale once.

DA 2 DLC may be in the same boat now as ME 3/KoA DLC. EA doesn't want to put DLC on sale anymore while 2K does something once a month.

Add ME2 DLCs and ME1 Pinnacle Station to the crew, although part of the former was given a limited discount as "loser" deals in the S&S+ app... I wish they'd put 'em all on offer like three years ago or so, but at this point I dunno if that'll happen again... :cry:

Atari filed for bankruptcy today. I assume Yars' Revenge being pulled from the marketplace relates to that. Their other games may not be around too much longer.

I Always thought Atari was owned by Activision or was already dead or whatever because it hasn't really been doing much from the get go.

In short, R.I.P. for sure this time...

...

I Think.

I think I did get Legacy during that one sale.

All my most wanted sales are DLC I realized. Here's an oddball request: I want a NinjaBee sale. Mainly, the Band of Bugs DLC. Plus the Zombiesaurus Rex DLC for A World of Keflings. I bought the other 2 during the holiday sale and am playing them.

Came close to buying sleeping Dogs dlc but it just didn't seem worth it. Will get the tournament one when it goes on sale.

Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is pretty cheap right now, if you prefer a digital copy instead of a disk version (room space problems, or just lazyness 8-)).

Pulled the trigger on Warlords and Star Raiders and Asteroids & Deluxe since they are likely to get pulled at any moment. Kinda bummed I never bothered to get Undergarden, but I guess if it wasn't worth the $3 it dropped to it wasn't worth owning at all.

EDIT: Looks like Undergarden still exists on Xbox.com after a quick search for the name. Originally searched for "Atari" and videos came up but not the game itself. Guess I'll buy it (and the DLC so I can 100% whenever I get around to playing it) too..

EDIT again: snagged Missile Command too. Not really worth the 400 points but I know it'll be fun.

Thanks for pointing out Riddick.. I may bite. This does include an HD upgrade to the original one on Xbox, right?

Wonder what this means for Test Drive Unlimited 2 servers? I know they shut down part one.

Most of the games are pretty meh. Alone in the Dark doesn't have online and was pretty medicore.
Bulletwitch was so-so.
Chroicle's of riddick was probably their best game.

I got it for 1600 pts right after xmas, so idk.

So are they still doing the half off of max payne 3 season pass? Or are we going to have to wait and see?

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?
