    This would be great if XBL was actually working. Every time I try to download something I get these errors: 80150101 or 807B01F4.

      Just be glad XBL IS working… poor PSN.

    i just want mass effect 2 on games on demand

    It’s about time for people to buy the Castlevania: HD and it’s DLC.

  • Anonymous

    Anyone know if the “banned” South Park episodes are on Live (and on sale)…they never went up when all the controversy was going on. Would love those two episodes uncensored.

    • Anonymous

      …and no, they are not. Episodes 5 and 6 are not listed for season 14. Oh, well, guess I’ll just buy the DVD/ Blu Ray.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Firebomb87 Derek Anthony Lavoie

        Sorry to break it to you…..but ’201′, the episode that was heavily censored last season because of the Muhammad controversy…….it’s censored on the DVD as it was when it originally aired. The uncensored version will likely never be released……at least not anytime soon.

  • http://twitter.com/Zonic505 Zonic505

    Cool, Castlevania HD stages are on sale. Now, when will the characters be on sale?

    oh good new demos that i want to play…yay

    Is that right? Was Banjo Kazooie really 1200MSP to start with? Seems a lot.

    • Anonymous

      Yes it is 1200 normally and yes that seems about 400 points too high for a remake of a N64 game. But I bought it at 1200 and it’s an amazing game and I don’t regret it one bit. 600 is a great price for it.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SBOOS3YDMQNMESDXXP5SHWTPNM David

    When are you guys just going to make Risk Factions 400MSP? This is something like the 4th time it’s been a “deal”.

  • http://twitter.com/nitrousx123 Samuel

    any info on Fallout New Vegas Patch or the new Honest Hearts DLC coming out for it?

  • http://www.facebook.com/lorenzoarredondo Lorenzo Arredondo

    Centipede & Millipede! Cool! I’d rather get these w/ achievements than the Game Room ones. What is going on with XBLA Game Room anyway?

    • http://whywasibanned.com TomeOne

      Krome Studios is gone.

    • http://twitter.com/DearQuark Daniel Robinson

      Microsoft has been very quiet when it comes to Game Room. According to the Game Room Facebook page, they’re focusing their efforts on the Windows phone version of Game Room. Hopefully they’ll come back to the 360 version soon.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sans-Gluten/100001325607074 Sans Gluten

    Game Room… hello… are you there?

    • http://whywasibanned.com TomeOne

      You haven’t heard? Krome Studios is dead and so is Game Room.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ivan-Lopez/763768247 Ivan Lopez

        Last I heard they were still going on. They made a Facebook application and their website is still up and going.

        pick up a windows phone and see how dead Krome and Game Room are…

      ….target lost….shutting down….

    • http://twitter.com/DearQuark Daniel Robinson

      A sale in Game Room would be excellent. Despite its faults, I love Game Room. I wish Microsoft supported it better.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/BeeDizz BeeDizz

    A couple things to pick up. I can’t believe the CoD DLC isn’t one of them. I like Blops. Why don’t i feel the need to get the DLC?

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

    outland is only 800 thats awesome news, instant buy for me, everything about that game looks outstanding.

      ^This.

    Hmmm, might have to pick up BlazBlue if it’s at a decent price.
    Any news Major on when the Mortal Kombat demo will be coming to XBL?

  • Anonymous

    Thank you for putting Symphony of the Night on sale next week!!!! I’ve almost broke down and bought it so many times, and now I finally get too. It was on sale about a year ago and i didn’t get it because i’m an idiot, and now I finally get to amend that mistake.

    Also plan to check out the 200 point games on sale this week, it’s hard to say no to a game that costs $2.50. Also might get some Harmony of Despair DLC and Outland. Thanks for the great sales!

    Oh, also curious is Nin2-Jump coming out tomorrow? That is what Joystiq is reporting.

  • http://www.facebook.com/andrew.ramseyer Andrew Ramseyer

    Hey Major Nelson are you ever going to put the release dates for Xbox Live Games for Windows Phone 7?

  • the Tech Dino

    I should just buy Risk Factions already. I’ve always been tempted during the other sales. There have probably been at least 5 sales where it’s been a deal.

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

      I was glancing at that myself.

  • http://twitter.com/Inaba_kun Phil Baxter

    Can’t wait for Bangai-O but I have to sigh as usual at the pricing of games on demand. Why oh why does a download cost twice as much as a disc from Amazon. Surely the download should be half the price, not twice the price…

  • http://profiles.google.com/sab.ca.sab Christian Adesuyi

    Nin^2 Jump (400pts) and SNKP’s Trouble Witches NEO! (800pts) also come out on April 27th…

    • http://twitter.com/Inaba_kun Phil Baxter

      I forgot about those. Both are must buys for sure. For those that don’t know, Nin2 Jump is by schmup legends CAVE! AND (as if that wasn’t enough), all profits from the game are apparently going to Japanese tsunami relief charities.

      Trouble Witches Neo also looks pretty nice and is basically an HD version of the PC Engine classic schmup ‘Cotton’.

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

        After playing it maybe they should just make a good game then donate the proceeds from that. I am getting a bit tired of these meaningless gestures, some dudes play a game and want you to donate to them to give to Japan relief. Epic sells crappy Avatar gear and gives away the crappy proceeds while making about a billion a year. I don’t think playing crappy games is really charity, if that was the case I should have donated a lot by playing Rockstar games.

    Where the hell is Sega Rally Online Arcade??!?!. It was scheduled 27/04 by some sources like Gamersyde.

    i didn’t see the price cuts for the Nickolodeon shows. any possibility on why is that, if someone could answer, thank u.

    It’s been too long since we got demos. Here’s looking forward to both the new Lego game and the Red Faction game! :)

    Thank you, Major. I was patiently waiting for Banjo Kazooie to drop its price. I thought Nuts and Bolts was okay but a little too frustrating, Banjo-Tooie was absolutely awesome, and now I wonder, will Banjo Kazooie top that experience? Everyone who hasn’t played these two Nintendo classics should buy at least this one. 600 points is a steal. =)

    • manoftoday911

      Totally Agree

    what’s the schedule for the avatar marketplace?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sang-Hee/740335916 Sang Hee

    I agree that they should finally put Mortal Kombat demo up. I’m still patiently waiting for it to decide if the gameplay is good or not. I’m not buying until I know and none of my friends has it so I have nowhere else to try it. Also can’t wait for deal of the week including Hot Pursuit dlc.

  • http://twitter.com/PerfectActive Jay

    Damn…. I wish I would have waited for the HoD maps to go on sale :( I bought all of them at full price a month ago….

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001429694002 Antony Walker

    Risk Factions on offer? Never seen that before… oh yes except for the 17 times before today.
    Not complaining BTW…
