Super Meat Boy
Here Are Your Xmas Xbox Live Daily Deals
Written Friday, December 17, 2010 By Richard Walker
View author's profile

More Christmas presents are on the way to the Xbox Live Marketplace from Tuesday, December 21st, with ten games being discounted for the remainder of the month. One will be made available each day and then will be up for grabs throughout the Xmas campaign, which ends on December 31st.

There'll also be surprise daily offers too apparently, although this lot here already seems pretty generous to us. The UnderGarden for 400 Microsoft Points is a steal, as is Castle Crashers at just 600 Microsoft Points. Banjo Tooie also goes half price and there's a second chance to get hold of Super Meat Boy for 800 Microsoft Points.

Still, there's plenty more where that came from, so check out the full list below of all ten daily deals available from December 21st through December 31st:

SMB, Comic Jumper, Castle Crashers = Definite buy.

Undergarden, Banjo-Tooie = Maybe

Whats hilarious is a few of those are deals right now in the 400msp rebate special. Funny thing is the two I almost bought are in this deal and come up cheaper and no lame rebate.

Anyone have an opinion about that Borderlands DLC.

what? There will be surprise deals too? I guess i will save rest of my 850 points after buying claptraps robo revolution. Thats 450 to spend, maybe afterburner climax, is it any good? What about undergarden, not too popular if it doesnt even have achievement guide lol...

Undergarden is a great game it was worth the 800 points and 400 points is a great deal.

I want to see portal: still alive for less then the actual 1200 points. I still want it but not sure if i want to spent 15 bucks on it.

Uh, from what I read on Major Nelson's web site, to me sounds like these 10 deals will all go live on the 21st with different daily deals being announced each day of the promotion. Still hoping for deals on Limbo, Plants vs Zombies and Lara Croft. Banjo Tooie and World of Keflings will likely be picked up though.

Going to pick up Banjo Tooie and Castle Crashers.
Just wished Plants vs. Zombies would get a discount too, I've been waiting for that for a long time.
All together, pretty sweet deals in my opinion, even if I would have liked a few other titles on that list better.

Only interests here are Comic Jumper (but I am already spending a lot these upcoming weeks on new games), and Banjo-Tooie (though I dunno if I want it before Kazooie..).

Already have Castle Crashers, Super Meat Boy, and Limbo, Perfect Dark and Alan Wake DLC from the SECRET DEALS.

Plan to get GOTY Borderlands, so the DLC is useless to me.

The only thing on that list that interests me is Super Meat Boy, but I'd rather get it on PC where they throw in cool updates like the character making fun of PETA or the guy from Minecraft.

@13: Undergarden is downright terrible. One of the challenges for Steams's contest they've been doing all December was to play the full version or demo version of Undergarden. It was some kind of bizarre puzzle type game but with horrid controls, at least for the PC version. After a few minutes of it pissing me off I tried to quit, but they made their menu system so unintuitive that it took me a few minutes to navigate my way out of that mess and get back to my desktop and Steam so I could delete the hell out of the awful thing. I wouldn't recommend paying even the discounted price for the game, wait until they give you 400 MS Points to take the game instead of asking for 400, and even then only do it for the points, don't actually play that mess.

Borderlands DLC is a definite buy for me, I have been waiting for it to drop to get 100% in that game again.

Other than that, I have pretty much all the ones that interest me in this list already, or the other ones that might interest me are still a bit steep even after the deal. I'm getting SMB on the PC because it has additional characters and stuff.

I don't want to be one of the whiners, but I find this kind of a let down compared to last years daily deals. I liked the mystery of not knowing until you logged in and opened the advent calender. Plus the value/selection seemed better. Hopefully #49 is right.
