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

  • Exu

    After Burner Climax: YES YES OH GOD YES. You’d be some sort of backward imbecile to pass it up at that price.

    Megaman 10: Lol, 10 on offer before 9. Buy it anyway.

    Scrap Metal: Eh.

    Death By Cube: AVOID.

  • IMLabman

    Your Death By Cube link actually points to the Scrap Metal page. Just thought you should know. :)

  • Tyger Cheex

    A pretty weak selection after last week… roll on summer of arcade, *that’s* worth getting excited over!!!

  • f1LbSteR0oNiE

    Gutted, I bought Afterburner at full price. I highly recommend it at 400. Wasn’t sure about mega man 10 but may just buy it at that price.

  • StuartATrueRed

    I just bought Afterburner climax the other day.

  • Wiizpig


    Mega Man 10 and AfterBurner Climax are two of the best XBLA games.

    If anything, you have weak opinions.

  • metallicorphan

    when do these deals take place Major?,its just that i have just clicked the Afterburner link and it still says 800 points

  • Major Nelson

    They’re available now. Make sure you are signed in to Xbox LIVE with a Gold Account.

  • metallicorphan

    nevermind…its been fixed now,thx

  • wiirule111

    I already own Afterburner and Scrap Metal, but i dont want MM10 or DBCube. Its still a nice week thou, and the weekly deals is so much better lately than ever before. :)

  • Jaysonguy

    Afterburner Climax is a must buy if you’re a fan of the franchise and Mega Man 10 is a great game, I suggest the Bass and Treble pack for anyone who grabs this.

  • Exocet Nick

    Thank you Red Dead Redemption and your wonderful free 400MS points for allowing me to purchase After Burner. I’ve queued that up while at work and may have a small play when I get home!

  • The Bill Payer

    What’s this week for Games on Demand Major?

  • SilentHunter382

    Yes. Defo getting After burn and Mega man 10.

  • Drz Prince

    @Exocet Nick, you get 400MS points for playing Red Dead?

  • Xlrking

    After Burner i can finally get if i want to now, but i already had Mega Man.

  • CryptoElite

    People just have to buy After Burner Climax, that game is SO GOOD!


    Three great 400 point games, but will still need to mull over that 800 point one. Not fully sold on that one yet.
    Thanks for these continuing weeks of multi-deals. I hope it can continue into the Fall.

  • Firecrest

    Nice, MS. It’s about time you guys continue to expand your deals to more than just one title per week to compete with other services.

    I already snagged Afterburner Climax when it was full price, and I can’t say I felt cheated at all. For 400, the game is a steal.

    Despite owning Mega Man 10 on both Wii and PS3, I’m compelled to also buy the game on 360 for that price.

  • WinterSnowblind

    Decent enough deals, but I’m waiting for Monkey Island 2 now.

  • chiruno99

    I got MM10 and After Burner just now, they’re great. It seems I’ve underestimated the DoTW once again.

  • weakwill

    After Burner Climax i shoot it down for 400 points.
    scrap metal its fine but i test it now 6 days.
    some news of gameroom major?i don t read about your side.

  • Beitamax

    Allright! MM10 & After Burner! Going to get those 2!

  • SCS 85

    Final some deals that aren’t rehashed from the past. Got After Burner and Mega Man 10, the only good games on the list.

  • Antarael Dulac

    I’d rather like 400MS Points than this stupid Movie “The Wild Bunch” <.< this is what we got from the RDR Trailer Special…(beside a RDR Theme)

    Anyway i bought MM10 =)
    Could’t get warm with After Burner though…

  • katsukiyakisoba

    That’s a good deal on Afterburner Climax and people that haven’t picked it up yet totally should. Also, the expansion for Phantasy Star Universe went free last week. It’ll be great for when the game itself finally hits digital.

  • Archangel3371

    Sweet. I just picked up After Burner Climax. Mega Man 10 is definitely worth it too but I already have it. I love these multiple DotW.

  • bullka LT

    Deal looks good… but still… there is no Lode Runner. It’s the only game which hasn’t been on dotw yet :(

  • I DLord I

    Scrap Metal: not worth $15 of your money, let alone $10. $5 would still be a tough sell.

  • Ultima22

    @bullka LT
    You’re wrong, sir.
    It was a DOTW during the week of the 14th of September.
    Plus, I know that because I got it myself!

  • AutomaticOcelot

    Mega Man 10
    Clear the game without getting damaged.


  • bullka LT

    @Ultima 22
    Thanks. I was wrong:( We see many repeats… so I still hope to get it cheaper.

  • Wiizpig

    @bullka LT: Actually, the most hated XBLA by the Deal of the Week guys is Banjo-Kazooie XBLA: it’s 1200 points and has never been on DotW.

    2 weeks ago or so they put up Banjo-Tooie, but no Banjo-Kazooie.
    Hopefully they’ll “fix” this.



  • Pureblade

    Bought Mega Man 10, still hoping to see Mega Man 9 at this price one day.

  • RealRuler

    In for Mega Man 10 and Afterburner Climax. Gotta use these free 400 MS points :D

  • Blood Hurricane

    @ Drz Prince


    In the UK Rockstar gave away 400 ms points for downloading a Red Dead trailer

  • sleepydumbdude

    Picked up Megaman and Afterburner. No interest in the others.

  • Kroesis

    @Blood Hurricane

    Bah, I must have not been in the first 5000 to download the trailer.. I only got the dashboard theme which, itself, isn’t very good tbh. Mind you it was free so I can’t really complain.

  • Deltacore16

    Death by Cube. . . Isn’t that the CBS network logo. That’s what I think everytime I see that game.

  • wolfzero01

    I’m going to have to get Afterburner now since I don’t have a lot of points left. is the new Dragon Age DLC coming this week as I haven’t heard any mention of it

  • daissu

    Maybe Afterburner

  • iFE4RFUL

    Major Nelson. Any chance you could make Trails HD for 400MSP? I’m not that rich Major. Provide the poor students with some good quality marketing.
