All I got was Portal 2. Everything else I already had or didn't want. The only one I considered and didn't get was L4D2. I had L4d1, but didn't get much out of it.

I only have really enjoyed a few multiplayer games...Brink and Mass Effect 3 are the ones that really come to mind, and I kind of liked Horde in Gears 3 as well. I virtually always hate Vs. games online, because even though I can beat single player fine, I usually get destroyed in Multi-player so it just isn't fun.

If anyone has a good suggestion for co-op multiplayer games that are A) good even with strangers, B) You don't have to use voice with the other co-op people or hear them, C) are Newbie friendly, I am open to looking into them.


L4D2 fits that criteria but that ship has sailed.

I am more of a lurker than a conversationalist, but I picked up a lot of deals and splurged a little as well. Fun thread everyone.

Call of Juarez
Rayman-Raving-Rabbids
DiRT 2
STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN
GRID
BioShock
SUPER STREETFIGHTER IV ARCADE EDITION

I could have saved more by going disk on SSF4:AE, and SF X T but I had about 6000 Microsoft Points tempting me from my Bing and XBox rewards points I had been hoarding.

I hope this is a sign that MS is getting their shit together on digital game sales. It's still not quite "Steam level" but I'm not expecting that. I now have a smidgen of hope they are finally budging a little on some of this stuff.

Yeah there were a few question marks (like MK vanilla edition being 20 bucks), but marking down oldie-but-goodies like Bioshock and Fallout 3 to 5 bucks is a noticable step in the right direction.

Just picked up Virtual Fighter 4 Final Showdown for 400MS normally selling for 1200MS, which is the new improved version of Virtua Fighter released last year. It's listed the OP at the bottom of yesterday's list but crossed out. It's in the list as sub-note in the list of fighting games but was to go on sale Mar 5.

I'm not sure why this version was not included in the last round of fighting game sales (maybe because they wanted to push the older Virtua Fighter on demand game).

Anyways, as of 4:00PM PST, it's available for 400MS for anyone interested.

I wonder if this big sale here from on-demand games was just a test by MS to see what price point people are willing to pay for in anticipation to their next XBOX live service if all rumors are true point to heavy emphasis on digital downloads....

All I got was Bioshock. Even though I already had most of what I wanted on disc I still feel a bit left out that I didn't get to spend more money (makes no sense but I know you guys will understand).

Just wanted to extend a big thank you to those in charge of OP. Excellent job with formatting and maintaining it during the sale.

There was initially a glitch in the prices and you bought the game before they fixed it.

So very disappointed. Not a single item in the sale I wanted. I would of bit on Crysis 1 and possibly some other DLC multiplayer co-op games. They should do it more often though like Steam.

Ok, I might just try to contact them on that. Not really a huge deal though.

I got Bioshock and the Metal Gears. Like a lot of the others, I considered the price of everything I bought as + an additional 50% off because I used my Black Friday point cards.

This sale was great, but I don't have enough space for them all. This just highlights for me the need for the next XBOX to either abandon these stupid proprietary drives and use laptop drives like the PS3 or be backwards compatible with the 360 drives. Unfortunately, I'm doubtful either will happen. It's strange that Sony, the company that seemingly hates using SD cards in their devices with a passion is actually more forward thinking on this point.

Long time no see. Anyway, here's what I bought:

Street Fighter X Tekken
The King of Fighters XIII
El Shaddai
Fallout 3

I probably could have made better use of what money I had if I purchased four $5 games instead of Street Fighter X Tekken, but hey, that's what I wanted. I've been having trouble downloading everything but KOF XIII, but I'm sure I'll have a chance to get the rest eventually.
