I swear GTA 4 and its DLC is on sale every other month. I was holding off buying Phantom Breaker until I knew what this weeks sale was going to be but I think I'm not even going to buy Phantom Breaker.

 In fact, allow me to make the universal mating call for this thread in our native tongue: "cheap, cheap, cheapcheap, easy achievements, free, cheap!"

 

You must have the wrong link. These are not easy achievements.

Thank god! I was starting to get worried that since GTA IV hasn't been on sale for so long, I thought they forgot about the game. Glad to see they didn't.

Yep...officially disappointed.  I tried GTA V again the other day and just couldn't get into it.  I guess I just enjoy watching videos of it on Youtube more than I enjoy the game.

I Save virtual space backs and majority of it doesn't expire until July so I'm fine with lack of deals right now.

I went for those.  Maybe that's just my personality (or enjoyment of villainy).  Or perhaps ya clicked on the annotation above for their newer video on the rare achievements in their favorite games.  Don't worry, maybe one day I should get the Avatar game too, not for the easy achievements, but I actually loved the series.

 

 

Well, it's quite unlike me to make a simple post but I remember earlier in the thread someone mentioned party fighters like Smash Bros.  Which reminds me of an old 360 party fighter I had my eye on based on the Nurarihyon No Mago comic a couple years back, haven't seen much mention of it.  There aren't many other party fighters I can recall on the 360.  I always love finding those hidden gems, like the GameCube party fighter featuring Bomberman, Simon Belmont, Optimus Prime, etc.

 

 

I am getting quite disillusioned right now, as I'm not seeing anything else up on xbldb for discounts aside from the GTA offerings.  The Xbox Rewards is no help either, if only they'd make another DLC punchcards offer, because I am currently eyeballing the WWE All Stars DLC considering the game's online servers as well as THQ are gone (hey, don't judge, this game balances out my Rumble Roses on the 360) and its now unattainable online achievements -_-.  Well maybe when Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z shows up, cus it appears there will be DLC for that already >_<. (I also keep mentioning all the DOA5U DLC I want)

Is it just me or is there a Rockstar sale every month?

 

I do GTA stuff with Sony so I will pass.

Since it's a GTA sale this week, I decided to jump on getting KoA: Reckoning. I bought a copy from GoHastings and decided to just buy the DLC since it's cheap. Why not?

Yeah I think I might grab the dlc as well. I want a disc version though.

If you use the 30% off code at GoHastings, KoA is $11 plus shipping. Not a bad price. It's not the $9.99 plus tax but it was good enough for me to bite.

Thanks. That's still a good price. I'm broke as hell though. Have a ton of MSP on my account and $20 I still haven't added lol.

I know it's mediocre, I've read the reviews, and I still want Spartan Assault. I guess I'm a sucker for Halo stuff. The co-op sounds fairly interesting to give it some replay. The problem is there's no way it should be $15 for 360 yet it won't be on sale for a while. Decisions. I almost never pay more than $10 for digital.

Well, at least The Wolf Among Us episode two is coming out this week. And the nice thing is I already have it paid for from the holiday sale.

Yeah, I am wondering as well. Not much to choose from on there.

 

Why is it that xbldb.com tracks 360 but not Xbone?

The trial is so short and did nothing to convince me in either direction. Actually, I feel like paying them that $15 rewards them for offering such a weak demo, so I guess it did convince me, just not the way I hoped it would.

Looks like Lococycle is $9.99 on XB1 now.

Maybe they just haven't programed or figured out how to program their site to track X1 deals.

I called it. Also its $10 on 360 I believe.

It is $9.99 on the game store now, so that's probably it.

Site probably needs an update to crawl over store.xbox.com in addition to marketplace.xbox.com and parse the different style pages.

Don't waste your time/money on it. I bought it, and got bored after 30 minutes. It's basically a top-down, small map, repetitive version of Spartan Ops meets Halo Wars.

Easy achievements, if that's your thing, but certainly not worth full price.

My guess is the 360 version will have compressed videos, because I can't see the graphics being downgraded considering it already looked bad on the X1.

 

It's a probably a sin to do but I might buy Lococycle. Then again that still screams the first Games with Gold title on X, outside of Crimson Dragon which I bought lol.

Hey, everybody. I'm not dead!

 

I know it's been a long time. But let me start off by apologizing for abandoning the old thread. I know you don't care about the boring details of my personal life, but I found out a little bit before Halloween that I'm going to be a father with my now-ex-girlfriend, and between that and finding out she broke up with me indirectly (through Facebook, no less), it threw me for a loop.

 

Let's just say it's been a very turbulent past couple of months. And I've felt very guilty for vanishing on you guys when I was trying to get our community going. But I think things have calmed down enough that I can participate in this community again on some level.

 

A big thank you to Bloomy and whoever else picked up the slack after I went native, the OP is in good shape and I'm happy to see that. I was really touched you credited me in the OP despite everything, that meant a lot.

 

I love you guys and it's good to be back. Just a shame this week had to be so subpar (GTA AGAIN? We just had a 2K sale.) Funnily enough, I never let my personal crisis stop me from getting XBL deals, so at least I didn't really miss out on anything.

It's not a problem. I really liked contributing, I just couldn't with all the shit going on and I felt terrible about it. I can see that the thread is healthy, and that's great.

So just GTA then? Oh well, you guys' opinions on these games and whether I should buy them? I have a coupon that expires next week so I'd really like to use it, and these are some of the cheapest (and the ones I'm interested in) that I could find:

 

Dragon Age Origins

Borderlands 1/2

Ghost Recon FS

Hitman Absolution

Army of Two: Devil's Cartel

Castlevania Lords of Shadow

I've been playing the Perfect Dark HD remake and keep remembering how semi-awful that game was. It's one of my favorites ever but every objective was super vague or buggy. I keep getting everything done but then dying/failing before I get to some arbitrary point that triggers completion.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is one of my most favorite games of all time. Its super underrated. Buy it! However, there's also a GotY type one that includes all the dlc and the arcade title that gives backstory to LoS 1 and 2.

Dragon Age Origins is supposed to be great. Get it depending on price.

Ghost Recon was fun but its dying out online.

Borderlands is fun with friends. I prefer 1 over 2 but they're both solid.

Hitman was alright. I beat it relatively qyick though.

Haven't played Army of Two DC, but I heard it was ok.
