The Major will tell you on Twitter if you want to know majornelson.com/

I want Limbo 1/2 price

Hmm , pretty meh selection. i would go for MNC or Limbo (still voted hot)

Might get Claptrap. I'm also waiting for Limbo and Hydrophobia to drop.

Banjo Tooie Discounted Price: 600 Savings: 50%

Will be buying that thanks

Would've loved costume quest to drop but will stick with just getting castle crashers it seems.

What's Risk Factions like? Anyone got that yet?

Apparently a hint for tomorrows sales is the character in the game has two guinness world records. I'm not sure to be fair who it's supposed to refer to.

Still, if you like Tower Defence then Toy Soldiers is a good buy.

LIMBO 1/2 price would be my favourite!

If you've played RISK (the board game) then you'll ike it. It's still a board game but has extra game styles/rules as well as original Risk. I like it.

Risk Factions is fantastic, as is Toy Soldiers.

Agreed. I bought this one because I had been after a game of Risk but no longer had the board game, you can play this exactly like the original game or play the newer version. So far I have stuck with the original as it's still a classic! Very good game but only if like me you like playing board games but have no real friends to play with ha ha!

All games listed above are on sale NOW and will remain so until Dec 31st.

They have separate sales for each day - that only last 24 hours (today's sale is the RDR game add ons).

Toy Soldiers is brilliant, spent a few months hooked on it this summer!

PSN needs to take notes on these crazy end of year sales.

Tomb Raider ??



I'm guessing so. I don't see a lot they could discount besides the Gurdian of Light game/DLC and some DLC for other Tomb Raider games.

What kind of games are Undergarden and Carcassonne? Haven't heard of them but at work and most game sites banned so can't research

Excellent post, all I needed was 400more points to get the Undead DLC but now I have enough points and I can stop doing stupid surveys for them.

Good work that man!

nice one thanks I think I'll go for

Risk Factions Discounted Price: 400 Savings: 50%

Well worth it for 400 points - I enjoyed the demo but like most xbox live games thought it was too overpriced.

I doubt they will, i had my points dispatched by amazon on 5th Dec and i have only just received them today.

Carcassonne is a tile placing boardgame : boardgamegeek.com/boa…nne

This is the blurb for Undergarden (which appears to be a mellow-ambient puzzler):

Wander the wondrous depths of an iridescent underground world bursting with eye-catching style, innovative adventures, and a Zen-sational score.

* Solve inspired puzzles
* Collect exotic artifacts
* Reveal 14 subterranean secrets
* Groove to soothing music
* Relax and play with a friend

I'd argue PSN has the better offers over xmas.... Either way you're quids in. I'll be spending a fortune on XBL/PSN in the next few days. BC2-Vietnam & Joe Danger straight away. Might try a bit of Comic Jumper too.

Super Meatboy is currently £3 on Steam, though will only have about 6 hours left on the deal.

any recommendations on those games?

Yep gone for this deal bargain considering its only just come out on PC

I'm gonna grab me some Super Meat Boy action!

Thanks for the list. Toy Soldiers is the only one I would be interested in, but I have far too many retail games to play so will give it a miss.

I got Super Meat Boy its pretty good. Would also recommend the BF2 Bad company 2 Vietnam content that came live today it is AWESOME, so much better than COD.

Also free 2011 avatar glasses today only!

Seems like I've been waiting an eternity for Limbo to come down in price. … Seems like I've been waiting an eternity for Limbo to come down in price. My 360 is busy gathering dust at the moment... Hurry up MS!



The full list of everything in the daily specials (although not which actual day and the discount) is here:

It's simply raising awareness that there are offers available at the moment.

Who cares who gets heat etc?
