      I’d welcome it if they keep up every 2 weeks like clockwork. :)

    Limbo is well worth a look. Paid full price for it a few months, but don’t regret doing so. Bargain at 600.

    Yeah! I just bought Shadow Complex right away!

  • http://www.facebook.com/cheekylee Lee Weedall

    Shadow Complex, Trials HD, and Castle Crashers are essential. I can’t imagine too many people who don’t already have these games, but anyone who hasn’t would be crazy to miss out. Monday Night Combat is excellent, and definitely worth the 600 but Limbo is over-rated. Even at 600, I’d still say tread carefully. It’s good, but you can get better experiences in Indie Games for a fraction of the price.

      Ahem. But the Indie version would be called Avatar Silhouette Zombies. :p

    lol – and here I was hoping for Metal Gear Solid.

      lol – nice!

    Bring em down to 400 each and you got yourself a deal.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, that’s my real trigger point for buying Arcade games. Why $2.50 more is a big deal, I don’t know.

    • http://twitter.com/boeboelord Boe2

      Your loss then. These are some of the finest games ever released on XBLA.
      I somehow have a feeling that you would complain the games should be 200 points if they were priced at 400.

    great deals.. so when the new arrivals come out just wait because you will save money. how bout a rebate for loyal members that spend alot of money on the games they love?

    • http://twitter.com/CyberKnight1 Yakko Warner

      Same thing happens with physical retail games. Do you go back to Best Buy 6 months later and demand a rebate when they start selling it for half off?

      • http://twitter.com/SithKnightmare Spider

        Well said!

    • http://www.facebook.com/rellus.gellor Russell Gorall

      It’s called Rewards, you get a nickel for every ten bucks you spend. Every once in a while I will pay full price on a new Arcade game, but if there weren’t these deals I wouldn’t buy them, period. Cheers.

  • http://twitter.com/boeboelord Boe2

    Every single title on that list is a must-have. Almost a pity the sale only lasts 1 day, because everyone should have at least tried them, and at this price it’s hard to resist :)

  • http://twitter.com/justinj1983 Justin Johnston

    i can recommend all of these games, i own all of them either through previous sales or from buying full price. at 50% off its like stealing!

  • http://twitter.com/ninjeestarr Eric Willes

    shadow complex and limbo…BOUGHT!!!

  • http://twitter.com/EvanTheGamer EvanTheGamer

    I own thee of the five, Shadow Complex, Limbo, and Trials HD. I’ve heard great things about Castle Crashers, but not really so much about. Decisions…decisions…

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5PIAMQ6N4JLT5FRSKQUYQDWHSI Pendeho Pendehiko

      Castle Crashers isn’t that good.

      • http://www.facebook.com/rellus.gellor Russell Gorall

        I agree, it’s a multiplayer game a lot of people have because they know people who have it. You can apply that to all the Call of the Gears of Halo games, though I have to say I like what I see for Gears 3.

    • http://twitter.com/silversteelwolf Michael Castello

      Castle Crashers has got to be the best $10 I have ever spent.

    • http://twitter.com/Teaspoon83 Sergio Vega

      Bring buddies along and enjoy the game. You could play it by yourself and enjoy the odd humor but it is meant to be played with others. Makes it a bit more…. frantic.

  • http://profiles.google.com/pmenezes.ww Pedro Menezes

    SWEET! I missed the promo on Limbo by end-2010 and was waiting for it to drop from 1200….
    Fantastic game, just a bit short for it to be worth 1200 points in my view.

    I already own Castle Crashers, Shadow Complex and Trials HD, otherwise I would buy them as well for 50% off it is a steal (bought SC at retail price but CC and Trials HD at 33% and 40% off respectively).

  • http://twitter.com/SithKnightmare Spider

    Shadow Complex or Limbo, I should only pick one. Suggestions?

    • Anonymous

      Shadow Complex, but really both.

    • http://www.facebook.com/rellus.gellor Russell Gorall

      Limbo, Shadow is a bit overrated. Limbo is a good piece of work.

    • http://profiles.google.com/renisjebus ryan clark

      This is a tough decision – I have both and don’t regret either purchase. I felt Shadow Complex gave me a bit more replay value, but Limbo is an awesome experience that shouldn’t be missed.

      The Signal was free if you bought the game new with a code. :)

    Bah, I have all of those. :-(

    Good deals all around, I have 3 of them and beat castle crashers at a friends so I don’t see a need to invest in that one. Monday Night Combat just isn’t my type of game, though the demo was pretty fun.

  • http://twitter.com/MichaelWFisk Michael Fisk

    Awesome seeing that these sales apply for Silver members as well… grabbed Limbo and Shadow Complex. Thanks!

  • http://www.facebook.com/rellus.gellor Russell Gorall

    Got Limbo, Shadow Complex meh and Trials HD. May also get Monday Night Combat. Today’s spotlight tweeter is walkerawine, who has posted thousands of tweets and has only sixty followers. Great job.

    Thanks MS for this, I knew waiting to pay the proper price for this stuff would pay off.

    Folks, Monday Night Combat, brilliant multiplayer, go buy it.
