I was really interested in Swarm when it was released. I was disappointed with the demo - I'll definitely give this a miss.

Nothing for me for the next couple of weeks. I'll continue to save my points then!

Almost all newly released XBLA games I don't bother with downloading the demo since I won't be paying full price for it. Even the Simpsons Arcade which just came out(and I LOVE), I refuse to pay full price. Don't get me wrong, it's great and I'd spend a roll of quarters on it in the arcade anyday, but I can't help feel slighted when TMNT arcade was released at 400 ms points. Plus I bought TMNT when it was 200 points and X-Men Arcade when it was 160 ms points. I can wait for Simpsons to be a DotW for 400.

That said, haven't played Crimson Alliance or Swarm. I'll download the demos and try em out.

So far I've bought NBA Jam OFE(game night next month and I can bite at 800, though I would prefer it to be 600), Deus Ex MISSING LINK and both of the Tomb Raider Underworld DLCs. Still waiting for Shank 1 to hit that magical 400 points.

Swarm & Crimson are priced right but I just didn't like either demo.

Crimson Alliance is alright, its not a complete shit game tbh. Fun with friends but shared camera is annoying.

Go for all classes because there is an achievement tied to completing a level with all of them, you can however get said achievement in the trial. But you will get bored just playing one class aswell

Will skip this DotW also... probably next weeks as well. Not bad things this week, but just nothing that I haven't played already or that I want that much.

I'm guessing that the RAAM's DLC will go on sale enventually. Don't know when that will be, but I see a strong chance of it happening. Microsoft already discounted the GoW3 Season Pass this past Holiday and they were always discounting GoW2 stuff the past two years, so it'll happen sometime in the near future(hopefully )

I bet it will go on sale again as well. It was a 1 day sale during the holidays and less than a month later it was a Deal of the Week. You might get lucky and you can pick it up for less than 600!!

I did update the OP. Cleaned it up a bit and added in next week's DotW. It's Batman Arkham City items, but I'm not sure these are the correct prices. I swear these are the current prices right now? Anyone correct me if I'm wrong?


February 14 – 20 “Batman Arkham City” *not 100% sure of price discount yet*
DLC Add-Ons
Nightwing Bundle Pack - 360 MSP 36% off (additional 50 achievement points attainable)
Robin Bundle Pack - 360 MSP 36% off (additional 50 achievement points attainable)

Avatar items
Bat Signal - 240 MSP 33% off
Batarang - 320 MSP 31% off
Batmobile Toy - 240 MSP 31% off

Just putting this out there as a note for everyone since TMNT 1989 Arcade was delisted from the marketplace: bestbuy.com has digital download codes of the game buyable for $4.99, strangely that's the only arcade game I know of that's available that way from bestbuy.com. I picked mine up thanks to a tip off from a friend and there's a thread about it on the TMNT 1989 forum.

I bought Marble Blast Ultra through Besbuy.com a few months ago and that game is delisted as well. I know you can buy other digital games thru BB.com like Gauntlet, but only got Marble since it seemed like fun when I tried the demo years ago and I wanted it since it was off the marketplace. It was $5 btw

Also, OP has been updated to reflect the correct discounted prices. Major Nelson had the actual prices, not the discounted ones for the week

Picked up the Batmobile prop, I don't really know why, I just had some spare points and thought what the hell. It adds to my Batman collection I guess .

Well I'm not buying anything that I don't want even for the 5% back, so if I don't get anything back oh well.

Hopefully something good will be out next week or the week after...otherwise looks like I won't be taking advantage of this 5% back thing. I don't want to buy stuff that I won't use (for now at least)...getting DLC way ahead of me actually grabbing the game is silly for myself to do.

Really? Ugh...is there going to be a GOTY or Complete edition? Maybe what they did with the Platinum Hits where it included the DLC for Fable II...because I honestly don't want to waste the points I have now for a game I intend to purchase in the future...just not sure HOW far along in the future until I get it.

Okay, will update the original post next break I get. I see that it's Fable 3 stuff this week and Gears 3 stuff next. Check out Giltect post above for the link to the Major's post that has all the DLC for the next few weeks

I enjoyed this DLC but I didn't purchase it seperate, I have the season pass. For 800 msp I'd say get it- the story itself is short but the achivements tied into the DLC will keep you busy for a while.

Great timing! I am just about to the end of Fable 3 and have loved it so far so this deal came just in time for me

I would have paid full price for these add-ons so this is win/win all day long.

Okay, just updated the OP with the DotW items for this week and next

February 21 – 27 “Fable 3”
DLC Add-Ons
Fable III Traitor's Keep Quest Pack - 320 MSP (43% off)
Fable III Understone Quest Pack - 220 MSP (45% off)
Fable III Dog Breed Set - 140 MSP (42% off)

Avatar & Themes
Fable III Reaver Industries Premium Theme - 160 MSP (33% off)
Border Collie - 160 MSP (33% off)


February 28 – March 5 “Gears of War 3”
DLC Add-Ons
Gears of War 3 RAAM’s Shadow: Pack 2 - 800 MSP (33% off)
Gears of War 3 Horde Command Pack - 560 MSP (30% off)
Gears of War 3 Weapon Skin Collection: Launch Collection - 1800 MSP (50% off)
Weapon Skin Bundle - Haze Set - 160 MSP (33% off)
Weapon Skin Bundle - Thunderstorm Animated Set - 160 MSP (50% off)

Avatar items
Cover Barrier - 200 MSP (38% off)
Berserker Pet - 120 MSP (50% off)


Nothing for me the next few weeks. Those that wanted RAAM's Shadow dlc at a discount now is the time. I have no doubt it will go on sale again(and prolly cheaper than 800 too), but I believe if you got it now, it'd be worth the MSP you might save in the future. I don't forsee it going cheaper than 800 till summertime.
