Did anyone buy any of the games from the on demand sale? and what was your reason?

I bought Bomberman and Conan tonight, both completely offline game, i wanted Bomberman because of how challenging the game is for achievements, Conan it has a good RPG feel to it :)

Nah. The only GoD I want is Tales of Vesperia. I would have considered others at 75% off, but the sale mainly consisted of garbage.

Ghost Recon. Not a bad price, and its in the same vein as Rainbow 6 so the only war based shooter I like. None of the others interested me though.

Picked up Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (underrated gem in my eyes) and Surf's Up for my partner.

and Surf's Up for my partner.

you like to see her suffer huh?

I considered it, but none of them look particularly good. I bought Sonic Adventure DX and Sonic CD instead. Mostly for nostalgia, but partially because I'm just lame like that.

I bought Cloudy and Bolt for when I'm bored and need some quick G's. :p Either played the others or didn't want them..£4 not bad though.

06-22-2012, 01:04 PM
No I didn't because I didn't see any game I wanted...even if they would have been free.

I was considering GRAW but ended up not getting it. Wasn't really impressed with the sale lineup.

I decided to pass. I wanted to get some of the "kiddie" games for my son but in the end I didn't bite.

I think I'll get Blazing Angels tomorrow.

already had most on disc, tempted by kameo but really only wanted games on demand that u cant get on disc like crysis

Sadodi
06-22-2012, 02:19 PM
Bought Ghost Recon as well as Kameo. I've been eager to play a Ghost Recon game, since I'm a big fan of the Rainbow Six series and both series share strong similarity. Kameo have been in my mind since I played the demo and got hooked. I love the variety of characters that you can play as and the atmosphere in the game, which made me buy the game.

Nope, and i'm not planning to do so.

Spanish Assault
06-22-2012, 03:05 PM
no and it was two fold....

#1. The games sucked.....hardcore. No desire to play any of them.

#2. The whole GonD just doesn't make sense for me. I can go to my local gamestop..but any of those games on a disc and then sell them on ebay and re-coup at least half of my money.

I understand some area's dont have access to these games, so I can see buying them then...but not an issue for me.

Samigi
06-22-2012, 04:15 PM
I bought Prince of Persia TFS (Its really fun and underrated, it's like assassins creed) I also bought Viva Piñata party animals, pretty shit game, I thought it was the farming one. Then I bought Open Season which is surprisingly not bad at all and has easy cheevos. ;)

RuYi
06-22-2012, 04:43 PM
I briefly considered getting Viva Piñata, but like Samigi I realized it wasn't the farming one. Figured I'd just pass, then.

I bought Surf's Up and Open Season. Got my 2000GS within a couple of days. :)

Mutalus
06-22-2012, 04:50 PM
Bought Conan,Alone in the Dark and Prince of persia. Conan is cool and prince of persia is amazing i wish i had bought it sooner. I had played one previously on playstation 2, but back then i didn't like it at all.

Alone in the dark is an extreme challenge for my patience. I had low expectations, but the game still managed to surprise me. I have to force myself to play it just to see what happens next in the story which seems to be ok. Controls are terrible.

I would probably have finally given Alone In The Dark a go but no access to my Xbox -_-

starmaker69
06-22-2012, 05:02 PM
No Bomberman? that is surprising, seeing none decided to give a go, since its so cheap to get lol. Bomberman isn't the best game, but it is a alright game, only issue with the game i think i will have is finding people online to play with, and maybe i should of got Price of Persia instead.. and glad to see so many like underrated Alone in the Dark, i enjoy that game a lot and already got it..

Chaz Of Sparta
06-22-2012, 05:53 PM
Nah, I was already planning to get the Forza Porsche Pack DLC and I don't see anything worth making me change my mind.

Blackest Metal
06-22-2012, 06:13 PM
I might get Alone In The Dark, I tried it years ago and got angry because I kept dropping the fire extinquisher during the prologue (damn physics) and turned it off in disgust. Two of my mates have 1000gs in it and they suck at games so im tempted haha

Buy it on Xbox.com and download to console when you have access to the xbox.

Probably going to pick up Conan. May also pick up Prince of Persia, since everyone is saying such good things about it.

06-23-2012, 01:44 AM
I got Dark Void and Virtua Tennis 09.

Joel78
06-23-2012, 01:48 AM
I picked up Cloudy Meatballs, Surf's Up, Meet the Robinsons and just about to get Prince of Persia. Haven't actually downloaded them yet as my main console is getting repaired but should be back soon....just need to find the space for them.

I already completed Alone In The Dark, i actually thought it was pretty decent, use first person view where you can though. I pretty much used a walkthrough for it all, maybe that is what made it bearable for me?

Floorkiller
06-23-2012, 05:37 AM
I picked up Bolt, Cloudy, Meet the Robinsons, Open Season, and Surf's up.

I've paid the same for worse arcade games, so I have no problem with these :)

KirbyTheAlmighty
06-23-2012, 05:39 AM
Bought Party Animals. I thought the demo was legitimately fun, and a couple of friends bought it.

SicklyPlague
06-23-2012, 06:18 AM
Eh im not gonna pick up any of them, i prefer to have the physical disks even if the game is a kids one.

Picked up Cloudy for the kids (yes, I finished it too). Almost got PoP but decided to not fill up my hard drive.

VladimirK
06-24-2012, 01:22 AM
So far Conan and Blazing Angels.
Not played Conan, just finished downloading.
Blazing Angels is playable, I was more just in a mood for a WWII aeroplane game when I got it.

Considering PoP and a couple of the family ones but might just get PoP since Skyrim DLC is out this week (IIRC) and I'll need points for that.

I got Alone in the Dark and Prince of Persia TFS :)

ThePumpkinKing
06-24-2012, 03:41 AM
I picked up a bunch. Just because they're cheap and good for rainy days. And my daughter is just discovering games. And she loves the Bolt movie. So she'll love the game. I expect she'll get a kick out of Kameo as well.

Anyway, got:

Alone in the Dark
Bolt
Conan
Dark Void
Kameo
Perfect Dark
Prince of Persia

Anyone that bitches about these games fails to realize that they're all cheaper than the worst Live Arcade game that are out there. As someone already pointed out.

Plus, regardless of how old they are, there are still some solid titles. Kameo, Conan, Prince of Persia, Perfect Dark. Even Dark Void is decent. And for five bucks a piece? Pfft. Why Not???

DJConnelly
06-24-2012, 04:12 AM
Picked up Prince of Persia. It involves a lot of running along walls. And skeletons. But I guess it's been fun so far. Though I think I could have written a more interesting plot. Maybe it will... thicken.

I bought Disney's Bolt and discovered the entire game is in French!
REEEEFUND!!

Best start learning French then. Think of it as an opportunity to learn about other cultures whilst having fun. You could even give yourself imaginary achievements every time you learnt a certain number of words!

Weird, my friend bought it and the game was in English.

I bought Surf's up and Cloudy with a chance of meatballs. I enjoyed both of them. Surf's up was decent and Cloudy was good since i was playing it at the same time as a friend. Cloudy is definitely a good game i would say.

Alone in the dark & Prince of Persia.

Can't go wrong for £3.99 each.

Hopefully they do more offers like this more often...:woop:

06-24-2012, 02:12 PM
I couldn't bring myself to buy any. Any that are pretty good I already own. I guess 50% of them I already have legit. So meh.

No, Perfect Dark Zero is a piece of shit, and not worth the $4.99. It's not even worth the $1.99 Gamestop is charging.

I bought Surf's up and Cloudy with a chance of meatballs. I enjoyed both of them. Surf's up was decent and Cloudy was good since i was playing it at the same time as a friend. Cloudy is definitely a good game i would say.

I was surprised at how solid Cloudy was. The pacing was perfect for the kids and nothing was too hard to figure out.

I've already played the good ones on the list so no. I do hope that they really start doing massive sales when the next Xbox comes out. I'd love to see XBL sales as well. 75-90% off would create a buying frenzy for me.

Bought Open Season, couldn't find disc version anywhere for a decent price until now.

Efase
06-24-2012, 07:47 PM
I was going to buy Kameo but Xbox basically slapped me in the face. To enter the card's details, I need to do something with an email I no longer have, because it doesn't recognize my computer. So, in 30 days I'll be able to change the secondary e-mail, but I doubt the offer will still be up.

The game list seems very crappy to me though.

Spock
06-24-2012, 09:16 PM
I would buy Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, maybe a couple others because they're only 320 points and I have over 1600. Problem is my ISP's bandwidth limit. Can't download more than 1GB a day or I'm bound to go over the 30GB/month limit. The BF3 DLC this month is going to put me over enough.

MrLeechkid
06-24-2012, 09:19 PM
None of the titles really interested me, had played Alone in the Dark on wii and wasn't really impressed. The only other one I considered was Viva Pinata.

I don't expect to buy any games any time soon, though there are a few I have considered purchasing in the past. Such titles include Tales of Vesperia, Silent Hill, Catherine, Devil May Cry 4, and possibly even Castlevania.

06-25-2012, 04:15 PM
Heck yeah I bought some! I got Conan, Kameo, Prince of Persia and Tornado Outbreak. $5 was the price of a rental, as far as I'm concerned, so I bought everything I had an interest in playing.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - Completed
Surf's Up - Completed
Open Season - Completed
Disney's Meet the Robinsons - In progress
Disney's Bolt - Up next

I had a lot of MSP saved up from Bing Rewards, so it cost me nothing =)

I wouldn't of thought so, considering it is a deal of the week and that week has past.

I didn't buy any of the games on there, but I was thinking of buying Prince of Persia, I've heard that's an excellent game.

The game isn't hard at all, and the only challenge is driving in fpv for the achievement, but even that's easy if you're used to driving like this in race games, anyway.

I really enjoyed this game, and I've never understood why so many people dislike it.
