Arcade, Deal, Marketplace By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Shadow0810

    the one with no more multiplayer? pass.

  • Guibs

    Eh, not sure on which planet you are live but this game HAS multiplayer. It has a MULTIPLAYER game…

  • Guibs

    BTW, the price has not been updated yet. Still shows 800 mspts.

  • rogXue

    hmm I was interested in this when it came out, I may pick it up for $5

    Thanks for the good deal Major

  • I chex mix ho I

    @ Shadow0810
    what are you talking about? if you would have taken 10 seconds to click on the link that major nelson provided to the game’s page on the marketplace you would have seen it has multiplayer in every way shape and form. laziness + stupidity = you

  • Christian Doe

    Is it any good? It looks like a fun diversion to NHL 10.

  • Mushroom Jones

    Still waiting for Castlevania to come down to 400 MSP. This is a pretty good deal if NHL is your bag, baby.

  • Mcmax3000

    I’m going to pick this up now. Almost got it at the full price so I’ll definitely pick it up for half price.

  • twisted poke

    Just picked this up and will give it a go tonight. Thanks for a decent deal for a change. I was expecting more DLC for games that people quit playing months ago.

  • Chitwood7412

    May get this when I get home. It looked like a fun game when it came out.

  • BrooksterMax

    A nice very recent game at a good price point.

    I still think you should do more than one title/and or DLC piece with some thought to permanent price drops.

    Surely some of the Perfect Dark Zero maps, Command and Conquer map packs, arcade titles etc. can be permanently reduced.

    Nevertheless a good title for this deal.

  • deltawing12

    This game is awesome, get it.

  • foxhunt99

    Are there ever going to be a deal for games on demand?

  • wiirule111

    Foxhunt99: Even if they have 50% rebate on “Games on Demand”, its still more expensive than in shops. ;) Hell.. Forza 3 store price is only 20% more expensive that the download games, and thats new retail and factory sealed. ;) I hope they only decrease price on games that cant be bought in shops.

  • Monhegan

    Great deal! Keep those 1/2 price arcade games coming!

  • Oh baby 1994


  • HenkvdWeerdt

    Looks fun to play. Maybe a little bit to fast?

  • KP ScuzzyBunny

    I think the question about multiplayer refers to the “blurb” EA has on the description of the game, stating that they reserve the right to shut down the multiplayer: “EA MAY RETIRE ONLINE FEATURES AFTER 30 DAYS NOTICE POSTED ON OR 30 DAYS AFTER THE LAST DAY OF THE 2008- 2009 NHL SEASON” (which is last season). This was the main reason I didn’t buy it at full price. Can anyone confirm if the online is still up and running?

  • sc00termcg33

    Price still says 800…

  • sc00termcg33

    I stand corrected, it has been updated to 400.

  • UNSCleric

    Awesomeness, I will be buying this one, and this is the first time I participate in a “Deal of the Week” offer and it’s also the first Arcade game I’ve bought in 6+ months due to the prices lately. I used to buy every Arcade game those first two years though.

  • SumHydroponic

    just bought it, decent game.

  • Guibs

    If you like hockey, it’s a nice diversion from the more sim oriented NHL 09 or NHL 10. It’s fun, espicially with friends either at home or over the internet. Reminds me a lot of the Midway “blitz” series.

    Nice timing, I played with my cousin at home yesterday and he said he couldn’t believe he missed that game and was sure to buy it this week. Obviously, I sent him the link so he’ll be even happier to get it at half price.

  • TooLegitVolz

    I bought this back when it released and I still play it occasionally. It’s an awesome game, I highly recommend it. It’s great both on and offline. You won’t be able to find people online at weird hours but I’m still able to find people during the day. But for 400 MP, it’s a steal.

    I was hoping NBA Unrivaled would be similar, but sadly it was complete garbage. I’m still looking forward to Madden Arcade and hopefully EA attempts a basketball game or attempts some other sports, soccer/football anyone?

  • trickybuz93

    Good deal for people who like this game. I, myself, might pick this up but after trying it first. But what I really want is for Games on Demand games to have a deal of the week. Please!!

  • JoBE242

    Very good game. Easy 200G. Half-price makes it even better!

  • sleepydumbdude

    Very fun if you have friends to play it with. Might get boring by yourself rather quick but did a 3 on 3 game with friends last night and it was a blast.
