The 7th Number

Posted 07 May 2013 - 05:44 PM

WWE Allstars have been $19.99 on bestbuy.com and if you could find it in store, I believe new and pre-owned.


For me its about saving my cash and using my MSP instead, so thats why i havent bought this game yet. I think WWE All stars might give me some fun for a week or two maybe. Plus i would have to spend another 9 dollars on top of the 20 to get LOD, Bossman, Million Dollar Man. So im not too sure yet.

Just to be clear, WWE All-Stars is a permanent price drop right?

Play the demos. Serious Sam 1 & 2 are old school FPS games that are super frantic and revolve tons of running and shooting. I can't speak for 3 or DD XXL

The core Sam games are built around the premise of keeping the player vastly unnumbered by the number of enemies it throws at you. They aren't a typical FPS were you're usually facing a half dozen guys at once, rather you're typically running from 20 or 30+ enemies at a time that are trying to relentlessly chase you down before you can gun them down. Everything about the series is over the top: from the bosses to the weapons. If you manage to survive the odds you can't help but feel like a bit of a badass. ;) The game also uses a score system to encourage repeated playthroughs.

It feel like an arcade game, sort of like a first-person Smash TV. I'd recommend the series without hesitation.

because in most games, if a few people quit mid match then everyone is booted because "there aren't enough players to continue" or "connection with the host has been lost". This also generally means those that didn't want to quit will lose their experience, and by extension their time was completely wasted. If you start a game, you ought to finish it. It's called not being a sore loser. If it was simply an option to surrender, that would be one thing, but quiting out mid match just isn't nice at all.

Looks like Bejeweled 3 is 50% off thanks to winning in that ultimate collection: http://marketplace.x...15-d802584111d6

Vote for next week is between sonic 4 ep. 2 and sonic adventure 2: http://www.xbox.com/...llection#battle

I'm so glad I skipped the previous 800 point sales on Serious Sam 3 BFE. I just grabbed it now for 400. I looked at a few reviews for Jewel of the Nile but none of them said how many hours of gameplay you're likely to get on the 3 new levels. Does anyone know?

Or asked differently... how long would it take to play through all of Serious Sam 3 BFE vs. Jewel of the Nile? Considering both are the same price and Jewel of the Nile is almost certainly a lot shorter, I'm not sure if I should wait for a lower price on the DLC. I watched a couple gameplay videos of Double D XXL and I'll have to try the demo on those.

And what's this "Gems Sale" for 160?


Howlongtobeat.com has SS3 as taking 9.5 hours to beat the basic game and 14 to beat it plus the extra stuff, they have Jewel of the Nile as taking just a little over 2 hours.

Wow Bejeweled 3 beat Zuma's Revenge? That's craziness to me.

I think XBLDB only scans the US marketplace, while that's on the UK one as part of a promotion there. US one still shows full price for Bejeweled 3.

Joyride Turbo seems like it could be the restarting of the Family Gold deal, which would be really weird, but fit.

Yeah, very arcade/toony inspired. Fun games, though they can feel and get repetitive quite quickly, even with the variety of enemies, boss types, and weapons.

This may or may not be coming to XBLA (c'mon Larry Hryb is in the trailer), but PvZ2 now has a release date (sorta). July can't come here fast enough. Don't Fuck it up EA!

Could be a potential tip off that the May Rewards Punchcard will be based around DLC or (FP)S, similar to how all the DOTWs in April were XBLA related like the Punchcard.

Can anyone comment on HomeRun Stars? I'm a big baseball fan, but not sure how much I'd bother playing it..


It's serviceable. It's kind of like a Kinect version of that mode in The Bigs 2 where you hit home runs into signs and whatnot, except it's Kinect so it is a bit frustrating. They do have one cool function where if you have a smartphone with Xbox Smartglass you can have another player use that to play as the pitcher. I've never actually touched it, but it sounded cool. I won the game off Playxbla when it first came out. Tried it a few times and it's not bad. If you're a huge baseball fan (I'm a Canadian living in Australia who has suddenly started to like cricket and rugby so not sure if I fit that criteria) it might be worth it for you. But don't expect anything deep when it comes to gameplay, it's just you swinging and hitting homeruns. It is gratifying when you do well though, I'd say that. My problem is that I barely play any of my Kinect games as I prefer just sitting on the couch and videogaming these days. So it's hard for me to truly recommend.

This will come out on every playable system there is. You will find it on calculators. It will be playable on your toaster. Popcap will figure out how to make it work on an abacus. It will definitely be coming to Xbox live. Considering they've been working on it for 4 years now I reckon it'll come out on every format pretty much Day 1 unlike the original which trickled out.

I could use a new toaster, so this will be great news if actually true.

Is BATTLEFIELD 3 PREMIUM listed in the upcoming sale the full game PLUS all the expansions, or just the premium expansions ADD-ONS themselves?

You and me both. Not that there's anything wrong with the toaster I currently have. Just that you can never have too many toasters. Maybe I'll get one of those Jesus ones and put some toast up on eBay.

Speaking of Jesus toast the latest Humble Bundle dropped and it's Double Fine. Sadly I own all the games on XBLA (other than Psychonauts which I have for PC/Mac but which doesn't run well on my old ass rig) so it's a pass for me. But they are great games. If you don't have them for XBLA it's a good time to grab them for your PC/Mac for a bargain price and you can always give your money to charity too which is win-win for everyone.

Oh wow, it went back up already? I was saving that as a last second decision as well. As I mentioned previously, I wanted it on North American PSN but that is literally the only platform it wasn't on sale for. Add to that Zen's somewhat cavalier response to disappointed PSN users ("I don't understand why people complain so much when we put our stuff on sale. Don't take offense, people. Wow.") and I guess I'm not too disappointed that I wasn't able to give them my $5.

count me in as well. Went to buy it at 7:40 central time after seeing this week's sales but wasn't too disappointed to save my points. To me it's money wasted for them. I was ready to buy at 400 because I was out of things to buy...so probably will never end up buying it. Shrug...picked up the scott pilgrim DLC last minute instead.

Hopefully go this weekend. :)
