I'd recommend FF double impact.  It's fun to play online and just drop in a random game with people and thanks to a sale there should be some games...

Thanks, demo on queue already. Caught my eye as well.

Oh god...Rockband DLC is my biggest weakness. I feel like a recovered drug addict in a room full of people offering cheap crack.

 

Yep, in my past 360 owning life it was easily what I bought most on XBL.

I think that is referring to the free songs that you get for buying RB2. The code was on the back of the manual. Should still be able to import songs as far as I know. Had some friends do it a couple months ago when they picked up RB3.

Yeah, you're right man. Edited my previous post. Oooops

Ok guys I was going through xbdb.com and here is what caught my eye:

Mega Man 9 (I own 10 I figure this is more of the same?)

Final Fight Double Impact (at this price if it has still working online its a no brainer)

Dead Rising 2:Case West (ok now on this one if I wasn't to excited on DR2 OTR should I just pass this one up? I guess im just not a huge DR guy?

DmC (for this I already own the 1 2 3 HD collection and 4 I got off the summer sale I figure may as well get em all right? lol)

Resident Evil 4 (same deal for this series I have 5 6 and Revelations don't care for Veronice or RC

Asura's Wrath (I may need to watch a video of this one, seems cool but the opinion here hasn't seemed great also how annoying is the qte? that could be a factor

They're still fun, I'm just happy I don't have to feel like I need to buy a new expensive bundle of easily broken plastic instruments that take up my entire house every year.

I've got an unopened deluxe Beatles Rock Band set I keep holding off on opening since I still have my old RB1 instruments as well as a few GH guitars to choose from if I ever get the urge to play RB, which has been a few years now. Could fall victim to some cheap DLC though.

I would keep that sealed, those instruments have actually gotten decently valuable and was helped by there being a lot of defective ones (like most plastic instruments).

Mega Man 9 is similar to 10, but it's an overall better game. 9 has the same spirit of innovation as Mega Man 2, while 10 is fatigued and exhausted, in the same way that later MM games were. Both games are viciously tough, so keep that in mind before you buy them.

Asura's Wrath is not much of a game - you rarely have full control over your character and when you do have at few points, the combat is pretty basic with zero variety. It's basically interactive movie with tons of qte's.

 

From that list go with mega man 9 and RE4 (one of the top games during NGC/PS2 generation).

 

btw: haven't played DR Case West, but heard that you are forced to use guns and it's worse than Case Zero and the main game.Using guns has never been fun in this series, you know.

Sadly, they will not.


Thanks that sucks man 83 new songs to play with on Rock Band Blitz for 9.99 would have been a bargin.

Looks like another sale with nothing for me. It's a big list, but not one game I would want (not counting the DR games, which I already own all of them)...

RE 4...meh...gave up on the RE games when it switched focus to non-zombie-horror co-op crap. Hate co-op games...

This week of deals is now complete. We now officially know that praxus hates everything from this sale.

I'd take a chance on Operation Racoon City, but just not at that price...

Fixed that for you.

 

I do wish that a lot of the stuff was a dollar or two cheaper.  $5 is an easy impulse buy but up closer to $7 I'm going to think about it more.

This pretty much.

 

$6.59 is odd price point.

I liked Asura's Wrath but I don't think it's worth $9.99 especially considering you have to buy DLC to get the true ending.

Why is RYSE keeping its price so high? I'm ready to play again and it seems to be 40-60 everywhere. Was it not 18-20 last month or so?

Yea, at Gamefly it was around $18 in June. It'll probably be apart of the August sale.

Glad to see some DOA5U content on sale (was hoping to see the new character+costumes on sale as well). Great sale, though I already own the games I like.

re 4 isn't co-op...

You have to drag that blonde chick around for half the game though right? To me that's forced virtual co-op. I can't stand games that have you dragging along a useless character that you need to keep alive. Plus no zombies...

Got it on PS Plus. Definitely not worth it.
