  • Victor Cortes

    Let’s hope we see some FNV DLC discounts.

    Hey @MajorNelson:disqus  Is there a press release for those of us wanting to find out about the “Bethesda Publisher Sale – Games, Add-ons, and Avatars”? I’m interested in it but want to know what starts today :)

  • http://twitter.com/ansys1977 Ricardo Baptista

    Still no Halo 3 ODST on Games on Demand? Please. And we also need Games on demand to feature multiple disc games. What about Iron Brigade?

    • http://twitter.com/dog_eat_waffle Daniel Tain

      Here we go again…

    • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

      Gotta haz dat ODST on my HDD!!!

    • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt Miller

      SHUT UP! You’ve asked over 9000 friggin’ times now, get over it. Buy it in stores, fail that, import it… Moron. It’ll be more expensive when it comes to the dashboard than importing it ffs.

        Do you need a hug?

    Lots of cool stuff this month!

    • Victor Cortes

      Shadow Complex is a steal at 600. Plus Space Channel 2 and Guardian Heroes.
      Would be interested in NBA Jam but already have the earlier retail disc.

    I am led to believe by Zen that the Pinball FX table “Sorcerer’s Lair” is also out soon; on October 12.

    Any chance we could a bit more info on that Bethesda Publisher Sale that starts today? If you search the marketplace by “Bethesda” only around 6 things come up, none of which appear to be part of this sale. 

  • Ratman Gweedore

    Any idea when Crysis will appear on Markeplace in Ireland? I’ve waited 4 years to play this, and waited all day for it to appear, but nothing yet.

    Still can’t see Crysis on GoD in the UK :(

    • Ratman Gweedore

      If you go to the Xbox web site and search for it, you can add it to your download queue from there. Its 4.09 GB.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Paul-Jones/841325505 John-Paul Jones

        I did hear that the achievements were screwed up on it as the title hasn’t been processed properly?

        • http://twitter.com/kingkongcompany kingkongcompany

          crytek says a patch is on its way

    Quake Arena for 400 points? SOLD!

    Already bought Crysis cant wait to dig into that. If NBA Jam was 800 points it’d be an instant buy, not for 1200 though.

    Pass on everything Arcade, but those are some pretty nice DOTW. Thanks, Major.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BGVYE6VO6MQXHXZN5SZXYO37PE MatthewN

    Yet again UK get screwed over, Crysis was advertised as 1600ms points… but somehow works out to £14.99 and that coverts into 1840ms points O_o

    What exactly is the gist of the Bethesda sale? Someone said something about Quake Arena, but if it is really Fallout DLC that is on sale once a month that sucks. I’m not sure about five year old Oblivion stuff, either.

  • http://twitter.com/boeboelord Boe2

    MajorNelson, is this the first Space Channel 5 game, or part 2 as included in the Sega Dreamcast Collection?

    Guardian Heroes, ooh yeah. This is the game Castle Crashers was inspired by, peeps!

    • http://profiles.google.com/thief000 J.A.J.G. Thiéfaine

      I think it’s part 2, as it is the one from de Dreamcast Collection going online.

    Why are Australians getting ripped off AGAIN? Last week, Resident Evil 4 “HD” (hah!) was priced $10 more for Australians. This week, Crysis is $10 more.  Please explain, Major.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5DY6RFL7EV5WQUJUZCGAIR2CLM Yacs

    Yes, Major, explain…. Why are the Aussie’s getting ripped off. Is it because they are “down under”?
