EDIT: Lol.  I swear, I did not see that Newegg 9.99 for Saints Row 4 before I posted my comment above.  That is such a freaky coincidence!!!  :shock:

 

Thanks for making this random comment.  I was just casually browsing my notifications and probably wouldn't have even checked the main page.  Was waiting for this to hit $10, so thanks again!

See? You've been an official CAG for a minute, and you're already producing results. By this time next week, you'll have your own thread. :D/

My 360 Elite has a Jasper motherboard in it so it's damn quiet, but only problem is the disc drive acts up meaning the disc tray has to have a disc in for it to open otherwise it's alot of trying to open it and waiting until it responds. Well that and playing anything directly on disc game wise sounds like a robot motorboating  a car engine. Plus the PS3 I got is the original 60GB models, so I'd be lying if I didn't expect the winds of hell blowing out of it when I try playing God of War: Ascension.

LOL best description of the 360 disc drive ever!

We have punch pie and ice cream.

I was curious how that thread's post count got to be nearly double this one.

 

Have now gone 2 weekends without clearing a game from the backlog.  Decided the next game I would bump off the backlog would be Banjo-Tooie, but first I wanted to replay Banjo-Kazooie again (200/200 that back in '08), and finished that up yesterday.  Click Clock Wood is still one of my favorite video game levels of all-time, with the level's varying theme music a big part of that.  Mad Monster Mansion is up there, too.  Some of the end game stuff is still a pain, particularly   Hope to collect everything in Tooie, even if there aren't achievements tied to it - never did it back on the N64.  Nearly screwed up my elbow trying to   Might be a few other things I didn't collect, would need to hook the N64 back up to check.

I never got the last Jiggy in Banjo-Tooie because of what's behind your second spoiler.  That section is complete bullshit, I still don't believe it's possible to beat without a special controller or something.

Was debating midnight club but no demo makes it a harder sell. Any opinions as to how it feels nowadays? Is it too dated?

Midnight Club is the closest thing you'll get to the Need for Speed Underground games...I played it last year and loved it.

Sequel to BFME2 would be great or at least get servers back for 2. Best controls for RTS on 360.

it's too bad ensemble is shut down, they made a great game. A sequel needs to be made. Halo wars and civilization revolution were my favorite rts games on the 360.

Actually, looking at that Dragon Ball game on xbldb, it appears it never actually raised in price from the last time it was on sale.

 

So that's not what the deal is, at least it doesn't appear to be

Wow. Again already (for the same price even)? I already own the Budokai HD Collection but that has yet to a sale, figured they'd go for that one this time.

 

I kinda hope this week is a dud so I can save my money for the recommended GH stuff before it gets delisted.

 

At least it's not the avatar item sale I predicted. :bouncy:

Holy shit, that cannot be true. How long ago was that sale? A month?

 

That's hilarious.

I went through all the games on demand and DBZ was the only non Rockstar title with the gold label and on sale. Who knows.

Seeing Dragon Ball Z UT at $9.99 I knew it would be like $20 or something in Australia, but it is not even available to buy on the Australian marketplace lol.

Anyway, is Dragon Ball Z UT a good game?

Can't find any other 2K games on sale

 

The Dragonball game never corrected, it's been "on sale" since the last time it was

Yeah, it's a Bioshock sale. Season Pass won't be on sale. Wanna know how I know? Because the last bit of the DLC drops on Tuesday, which is why this week is Bioshock-themed in the first place. They gotta milk the last of those profits. If they put the Season Pass on sale, it would either be the same price or cheaper than the new episode (Episode 2 is $14.99, Season Pass is $19.99).

I went through all the games on demand and DBZ was the only non Rockstar title with the gold label and on sale. Who knows.

No, you're right. XBLDB said it never went back up in price.. since February 17th. And XBLDB's never been that wrong. I'm dying of laughter here. It sold so badly they forgot to fix the price.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if they made this week and last week meh so that more people would buy GH stuff. Not entirely outside the realm of possibility.

 

Edit: It drops TOMORROW, March 26th was the release date of the original game last year. Wow, that year went by quick.

"Boss... boss! Do you remember that sale we had 5 weeks ago?"
"What about it? We didn't sell much..."

"Well, we forgot to fix the price and it's been on sale for over a month now."

"That's impossible, I did not see any increase in the- oh..."

You may have just sold me, underground was arguably my favorite nfs.

Yup was gonna say that, last DLC clocks in at 6 to 10 GB too, meaty!

Wait what?? The DLC is 6-10 gigs?? Holy hell. Must be a pretty lengthy campaign.

I'd love to get Bioshock infinite (already own the other two). But it would take too much space with the DLC's. I'm going to hold off until they release a complete edition and get it for cheap when it goes on sale. All this assuming that they'll release a complete edition eventually, of course :-

I guess that they meant the game WITH the DLC's.
