Finally getting around to playing Harley Quinn's Revenge to contain my Batman urges lol. I would also like to take this time to once again recommend the Captain America game. It is basically a knockoff Batman game, but its the Captain! plus the collectibles in it are actually pretty cool and it is a very east 1000G's.

I'll back you up on the easy 1000.  It was a fairly short game with easy collectibles.  As far as it being good, though...well...

It was not the worst game I've played, but I personally wouldn't really recommend it for anything besides achievement farming.  Better than a lot of other movie tie-in games, but that really isn't saying much.  Of course, after saying this I realize that I only played it on PS3 for the platinum so there is a chance I could end up playing it again on Xbox for the achievements.  I will not replay Hanna Montana, though.  I have to draw the line somewhere.

Cap was definitely awesome.

I missed out on 100%ing the game by missing one damn blueprint and one Gold medal on the challenge maps. I often think about buying it again to get those two but then I think I'd have a problem.

Second this. Best arkham knockoff I've played.

It's dumb as all get out, but they got the combat right and the shield is so goofy.

As a Windows Phone owner, I've been waiting for this since forever.

 

 

I wasn't sure about renting Captain America, but these posts and Ray Sipe's video

 have convinced me. Thanks

I thought it was okay, though I only played it for a little bit because I don't own it. Been waiting on a good price on it, but it never hit the price point I wanted.

 

It's definitely better than the Iron Man games (also from Sega), at least. :-P

I'll look into that, thanks. If you have any other easy 1000G's, please recommend. I'm only sitting on 8K after my 360 died in 2009 (RIP). Then I came back this year with Xbox One and a WP8 phone.

 

Wow, that's brand loyalty

What is the running time of a game before you consider it short? All of these comments on Dead Light made me check my playtime when I finished it yesterday for the first time:

 

4 hours, 17 minutes.

 

To me that's not short, especially since I didn't get all of the achievements and items.

 

I'd call a short game 2 hours to finish. Games like Alien Hominid, The Maw, and most of the NES library.

The reason Deadlight got smacked with being considered a short game was due in part to a now patched bug that the game had where it didn't seem to record all your playtime (I think the game clock rewound when you were knocked back to a checkpoint rather than recording re-playing sections after dying). With that in mind most people were clocking in completion prior to the patch at around 1.5 - 2 hours. But reviewers hardly update their reviews to include patches so it still has this stigma of being a 1-2 hour long game.

Yes, it has gamerscore (250, X1 version has 1000). Go here to view the achievement list. W8 version on sale for $1.99 for the next week (after that, a permanent price drop to $4.99) while the X1 version is at $10.

What?

That sounds about right. I don't know, I still felt like it was short (I think I 100%d it in 4 hours or something). For a $15 Summer of Arcade game, I expected more (I only bought in at $7.50, but you get what I mean). But the in-game clock issue did not help it when it came to reviews. It's why you should have your own timer handy. :bouncy:

I misunderstood until I saw the links.  I don't have any problems with TA as a reference, I just didn't know the original price was $6.99.  I thought the "permanent price drop" was meant to be relative to the $1.99 price, not $6.99.

By the way Microsoftstore.com has some awesome prices right now. Skyrim and Borderlands 2 are $1.99 amongst a few others. Also a fucking sweet ass Master Chief action figure is $5.99.......do it....do it :)

I ordered the Master Chief on Sunday and it just came in. It's a steal at that price for a gift. This one is for my son's birthday.

Don't you get the 360 version of Spartan Assault cheaper if you buy one of the W8/WP versions?

I'm pretty sure that deal expired awhile ago. I would be all over it if it was still good.

Dammit, that doesn't exist for us in Canada  :-x . There's only a few deals for games, although Microsoft products (such as Windows) are a much better deal, especially with the Student Discount.

I bring news from the Steam peoples! UFC Undisputed 2010 and Read Dead Redemption are losing multiplayer May 31st. I only see 54 games and the post says hundreds, so there may be more! NOW HOW WILL I PLAY UFC 2010 WITH MY GRANDPA NAMED SANTA THAT LIVES IN THE NORTH POLE!

Gamespy multiplayer servers are shutting down on May 31st.  This affects hundreds of games, console and PC alike, with some big titles on the list, such as the ARMA series and the original Borderlands.

EDIT: I just realized that the filter was on only for games released in 2010. I'll check older titles meow and edit if I finds more.

 

WWE Smackdown vs. RAW 2010

Section 8

UFC 2009 Undisputed

WWE Legends of WrestleMania

 

EDIT2: All done. That doesn't seem so bad. PC and Nintendo are getting hit much worse. I wonder if there is anything newer than 2010 not listed on the site.

Umm, I'm not sure if you read that article, but it says RDR and other R* titles will not be affected...

That's not super terrible. I never was into WWE/UFC games anyways.

 

Section 8 is probably the biggest loss. But weren't servers for that already shut down? On some platform?

I'm sorry but anyone who bothers to include how long it takes to beat a game as part of their review who can't consciously tell a 4 hour experience from a 1.5 hour experience is not someone who's reviews you should be reading.

They really phoned it in for Harley Quinn's Revenge.

 

If anybody's fixin' for superhero games that may or may not be movie tie ins, Green Lantern's decent. It has drop in co op, if you've got a buddy to play as Sinestro - no achievements for P2 though.

Pretty big deal if Borderlands 1 goes down. Still never finished those arena achievements lol

 

I believe Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 is on that list to.
