    Glad to see Shank II at 800MSP, I’ll get it once I finish the first.

  • Anonymous

    Meh @ Deal of the Week. I’d imagine the Squeenix Publisher sale will be disappointing too.
    Looking forward to the House Party though, they all look like great titles, especially Alan Wake.

  • Anonymous

    Nothing interesting  for me… I’ll keep waiting…

    So bad I had to waste my points… didn’t want to keep them in my account, under risk of being stolen.

    Will it never be solved?

  • Matt Holden

    What’s coming in the Square Enix sale? That could be interesting

    Any news if the MTV Beavis & Butthead Collection is coming to europe ?

    • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

      Any news if it’s coming PERIOD?  This can’t be an update, because there is no B&B stuff on the avatar marketplace, in USA anyway.

  • http://twitter.com/SithKnightmare Nathan

    Is there any more detail for the Square Enix sale?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KZ7NI75SAJ5SEI2FUXAJR2ABCA A B

    might have bought the batman bundles if they were 400. 560 is stupid

    • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

      Those prices are the regular price listed for some reason (typo on Major’s part).  But if the %off is to be believed, the bundles should be 360.

    Gotham City Impostors might be the worst idea ever conceived for a comic book based video game. Take Batman, a character who not only doesn’t use a gun but actually refuses to ever use them and hates guns with a passion, and base a first-person shooter around him.

    • http://twitter.com/xiphi Marcus McCurdy

      First off, Batman and The Joker aren’t even in the game. Secondly, have you not seen The Dark Knight? Thirdly, this game actually happens to go along with the comics. Great idea, IMO, and it’s actually fun when the match making decides to work…

    • http://twitter.com/omgangrybees kyleh613

      You might want to actually read up on what the game even is. Your post is really stupid, Karl Cramer.

      Someone didn’t play the beta… It’s a really fun concept that I hope gets more attention from ignorants like you.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XHCYLCGIFEVPHZCCJWSPZSVVTM Ardania

      Batman actually used guns in a certain time of his career, this was later corrected in later publications of the comics and his anti-gun policy became canon.

      However, GCI has nothing to do with the character of Batman, but rather civilians taking up sides in a turf war.

  • Jason Alexander Dietrich

    Gotham City Impostors for me!

    Hope to see the Deus Ex DLC in the Square Enix Publisher Sale too.

  • http://twitter.com/MarkCadman_UK Mark Cadman

    Aren’t the Nightwing and Robin bundle packs ALREADY 560 points on the marketplace??

    • Jamie Cottage

      Yes they are! Also let’s hope ‘The Arkham Bundle’ is reduced…

  • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt Miller

    I’ll check the imposters trial out.

    Major, whatever happened to this: 
    http://majornelson.com/2010/10/25/avatar-marketplace-poll/
    Seems like you ignored the majority of votes… *sigh* no surprise there. Everything else is on the mrktplace, so what’s the excuse for anime? There’s no point of asking you nicely as you wouldn’t reply either way.

  • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

    DOTW not too bad.  I’ll get Crimson Alliance in some form or another.  I’m not interested in the Batman DLC, but at least it’s new content going on sale and now the same old repeats.

  • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

    NBA Jam is $5 off too, not sure why it isn’t listed here.

  • http://twitter.com/omgangrybees kyleh613

    This months Forza 4 DLC is the best thing since sliced bread! I hope there is a season 2 pass for Forza 4.

    Someone tell MS they released a bunch of Gotham City Imposters DLC before the game is out.

    What is going on with Games on Demand? Extremely slim pickings as of late.

    • Anonymous

      Well, Games on Demand was never a major initiative to begin with, its just been something thats there, and not much else. But yeah, it would be nice if they could crank up the speed on their downloadable releases, there are definitely still plenty of missing games.

  • http://twitter.com/pcedfeldt Paul Cedfeldt

    Anyone have a link to the Square Enix Publisher sale items?  I hope the Dungeon Siege DLC is in there :)

  • http://pixeldujour.com/ Mike

    No demo for SSX even though it comes out on Feb 28th? Bummer. I hope it shows up at some point before release… 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XHCYLCGIFEVPHZCCJWSPZSVVTM Ardania

      Not every game gets a demo you know…

  • Anonymous

    But it has nothing with the actual characters of Batman, its very tongue and cheek about that, one of the appealing aspects of the game. I’ll admit, I thought this game sounded dumb too when I first heard of it, and you could dismiss it as an online CoD clone….. you could… but given what it is, its an entertaining game regardless. It is actually dumb, but its dumb in a good way…. STOOPID!?!?!

  • http://www.facebook.com/halsall Ian ‘Akuma’ Halsall

    Gotham City Impostors is immense.  Definitely the best multi-player XBLA game I’ve played since Castle Crashers.  Day one purchase for me.

    • Anonymous

      It isn’t out yet and it is the best XBLA multiplayer game since whatever? Oh, the multiplayer demo you were so enjoying. What are you missing here? It has an “immense” amount of “pre-Day 1″ DLC, is that what you meant? You pay fifteen bucks for what should have been a forty dollar product. Pay for it then give opinions on it.

      Hilarious.

        I was in the beta and I agree with what he thinks about it.

  • http://twitter.com/TrashMKX Chris

     He called your post stupid, not you. So he was actually being very mature about it.

    glad to see some fresh content on sale crimson alliance seems like a good deal but need the tomb raider underworld dlc more even though its not all that great of a game

  • Anonymous

    Yawn. Why is the Disneyland Adventures demo the most exciting thing here (I’m excited to have my daughter try it, not me)? At least I can pick up Guardian of Light in the Square Enix sale, I guess. Those Arkham City prices are going to have to plunge quite a bit before I consider them.

  • Anonymous

    So…in other words you take comic books way too seriously.

  • http://twitter.com/drewmmichaels Drew M-Michaels

    Any word on whether we’ll be getting a Games on Demand version of Catherine, as PSN did today?

    • http://twitter.com/mathuthe Mathias Olivera

      No idea, but why buying Games on Demand? It’s easily the worst thing Microsoft has done on Xbox Live. If digital copies of a game are the future, then it’s looking grimm. Black Ops is 70 bucks while you can get it for 25 or less on Amazon, new. And every other game is a giant ripoff as well. I haven’t seen ONE deal there that convinced me to purchase. 

      • http://twitter.com/drewmmichaels Drew M-Michaels

        Well, I’m assuming that the price would be comparable to PSN’s $39.99, which is also what the game goes for, roughly, on Amazon. Given the choice, I’d always rather avoid messing around with discs and such.

    Cool. Fresh sale content! It’s only 33% off, but I’ll take it!  Picking up that Pinball table too. Loves me some FX2.

    Lara Croft and the Guardian Of Light, I enjoyed that game. The Lara DLC that has the wave based level was nice too. Crimson Alliance, now, so this is DLC for a demo….ah never mind. That was sort of a confusing/misleading deal. I will try to re-download the thing and see if it clicks with me this time. 560 is still way too much per character though (I’m thinking per extra character, not the first one).

    Yay for Mass Effect 3 demo. I hope BioWare doesn’t bombs this like they did with Dragon “the A-wesome button” Age 2. Shank 2, at that price, I will give the trial a chance. I liked what I saw on a preview. So, there is a slim chance I might bite on a deal in the following two weeks (in comparison to the previous four). ***aonedaydealonTorchlightat400willputaholeonmycontrollerfromtheinstabuy***

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XHCYLCGIFEVPHZCCJWSPZSVVTM Ardania

    So I just gave Crimson Alliance a shot, not worth the 800 ($10) for the 3 characters, the game feels very simple and lacking finesse compared to other hack and slash RPGs.

    To think I skipped the Bastion sale for the deals these coming weeks.

    They should really have at least 1 discounted XBLA game per week along a couple of DLC packs so folks who do not have a specific game can have an alternative.

    Next week its all Batman AC a game I do not own, so I guess its another wait for the next 2 weeks.

  • Anonymous

    There are 36 pieces of Gotham City Imposters DLC up before the game is out. smh

    • http://twitter.com/AntaraelDulacre Antarael Dulacre

       Actually it’s 105 Items (not even counting the pc ones…)

  • http://twitter.com/TrggrPnt nickwade

    When will new video apps like Manga, HboGo, and MLB be arriving?

  • http://twitter.com/williamronholm Anonymous

    Love the Square Enix sale… Finally have Missing Link and bought the Tomb Raider DLC while I was at it. Great month for Rewards to be giving back 5%.

  • http://profiles.google.com/vectorvictor99 Matt G.

    Major–could you give us an update on some of the delayed XBox Live Apps, like the HBO To Go app here in the U.S.?
