Which South Park is it?

I think I'll take Perfect Dark from that selection.

Isn't there only the one South Park game on XBLA? It's the Tower Defense one

Lets Go Tower Defense Play

Incidentally, the games pictured for the Friday sale are Shawdow Complex, Monday Night Combat, Castle Crashers, Trials HD and Limbo. I assume those will be sale, hopefully one or two more as well. After all, X-Men wasn't advertised the other week.

Out of this stuff, might pick up the Reach map pack and maybe Limbo too, depends on the price. Shame Toy Soilders hasn't dropped to 400. It's been on sale for 800 a few times before, not too fussed about it but would probably get it at 400.

Niccceee, i've been waiting for Limbo and Snoopy Flying ace to come down.

Also this Castle Crashers seems like a nice little platform game.

Better go get some more points!

are the 'prices' if you are a xbox gold member though?

I got stitched up not so long ago with a forza 3 expansion pack....was advertised 50% off....but got charged the full whack....was the told my MS 'support' that the price was only for gold members....

Limbo's been 800 points before so i presume it'll go down to that instead of 50% off, but who knows, we might get lucky

Braid and Noble Map Pack for me

Hi, the deals seems to be live if you go to xbox.com and purchase from there. All the items show up at the discounted price for me and I've bought a couple of them at the discounted price.

Perfect Dark for 400. An absolute bargain.

Cheers, was getting to that part once I'd done the links but got held up by a phone call and the doorbell! Will add info to the OP.

Why on earth do they keep on putting the same things on sale all the time.

I'll grab The Writer, and maybe Dukey-baby after I've checked out how it plays. Thanks.

On a different note, I wish the developers of some of the big shooters would cater for the single player side a little more. It seems they're forever churning out multiplayer map packs, yet single player episodes are almost non-existent.

Banned

Bought Snoopy & Alan Wake DLC. Weirdly I can no longer access XBOX.COM through work. I wonder if MS have changed the settings? Had to do it on my mobile

Done.. Nice one

Tower defense games... why?! Dreadful.

Anyway, 'Splosion Man is a GREAT platform game - I picked it up for 160 points I think! Well worth 400 in any case!

Major Nelson confirms it's gonna be 600 a piece for the Friday games.

I Second that... dead space was dying for some single player DLC



Dead Space 2 has some. Got it downloaded but not played it yet Severe or something or other

On topic Castle Crashers, Limbo, Trials and Shadow Complex are well worth a purchase (Not played Monday night)
And the Crackdown Add ons are great fun
Edited by: "rogue_wolf81" 12th Apr 2011

My xbox is banned but I bought Perfect Dark anyway. You never know when I might pick up a new 360

Shadow Complex, Limbo and Castle Crashers - the three best ever XBLA games, if you haven't played them, get them ALL

Thanks for the work with links etc. Is Castle Crashers a long game ?. I have herd a lot of good things about it. Its either that or Shadow Complex but I herd it was great but short ?.

Great effort on the thread mate, many thanks

VOted hot for the efforts and links!

Shadow Complex is great, but short. It's essentially a modern Super Metroid. Once you finish it, you can then try a 100% run, or a low% run, but unless you're into speedrunning to crank your time down, there's not much more to see.

splosion man is a must, lots of replay on mp

shadow complex is good 1st few times through, not much to do after that

limbo same as shadow complex

tempted by castle crashers

LIMBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Nice n hot. def getting trials and shadow complex if they are 600ms come Friday !

Trials HD is the best of the bunch.
I didn't really enjoy Castle Crashers. Trials has so much replay value especially when you have friends with the game.

Don't forget to jump in today and grab your copies of the one day discounts! They'll be gone again tomorrow! (Until the next time they're on offer, of course :D)

Yep, except for the ones who blow all your best times out of the water!! I do agree about Castle Crashers. I never quite understood why it's so revered.

Edited by: "cookiemonster83" 15th Apr 2011

Ah well i just bought castle crashers, hopefully it wasnt a waste, at least it was half price. I got the monday night combat or whatever its called aswell. Half price so cant go wrong really.

Are these 600 points games for Gold members only like the rest of the deals?

I'm not honestly sure, but they are showing up as 600 even when not signed in on xbox.com - so you might be in luck!

Don't get me wrong, the majority opinion is that it's a fantastic game! I just personally found it to be just 'alright' and nothing overly special. The graphical style is really nice, but I've not felt compelled to go back and go through it again.
