Arcade, Deal, Marketplace, Xbox 360 Games On Demand By Jeff Rubenstein

  • James Runyan

    Major please Lets have sales on Mass Effect 3, Shadowrun, and Pinball FX tables

    • maxy

      We had sales on Mass Effect 3 like 4 weeks ago.

      • Antarael Dulacre

        We also had 2 weeks of CoD Sales and now it just got a permanent price drop to $39.99 lol..(which makes the two weeks sale pointless)but hey why not GTA 4 DLC Sale again? lol Or RDR, Fallout, Boderlands 1 and so on…

        • ImTheMetalLord

          How does a permanent price drop now make a previous sale pointless? That is basic economics 101 my friend. Happens to everything all the time. Unless the demand is high for something and the supply is low like crude oil for instance.

        • maxy

          I know why are you telling me these things? Im wishing for red dead redemption sale too! But its was 4 weeks ago on the ultimate game sale I missed it dammit :(((

          • Antarael Dulacre

            I was being sarcastic since those things are on sale at least 5-6 times a year…

          • maxy

            So what they put them on sale for people who missed them buying!

        • maxy

          and no the 2 weeks sale on CoD sale wasn’t pointless mate! I got the game from the last sale and it got more discounted,but I did not got pissed!

        • マリオ

          I got Blands 1 GOTY for $9

  • Cookies!

    1 USD$ is worth more than 1 Euro£, because the exchange rates are always changing, it would be difficult for MS to change the prices to match all the time, also, retailers prices are also inflexible as well. While it may not be the fairest system, it is probably the easiest to just put the prices higher to keep them stable, this way, both retailer and M$ can still make profit without constantly fluctuating the prices.

    • bloody

      1$ = 0.80€

      the prices in europe are way more expensive. and its not only in europe that this is happening.

      last week dow were ok not these ones.

      • Cookies!

        Sorry, Euro is worth more, still… goes around the same concept

  • CISphil

    Is there a chance of a season pass sale at all since it’s a XBL reward this month?

    • ImTheMetalLord

      My guess is 0% chance. They don’t put things on sale then give you a reward for them. That’s a lose/lose endeavor for MS.

      • CISphil

        Not necessarily. A small discount on some season passes towards the end of the deal may spark more interest. But I get what you’re saying.
        And yeah I doubt they’ll do it either.

    • maxy

      Do MS do a sale like the ulitimate game sale this month?? Please tell me about it!

  • Shakeslikecrazy

    Already spent about 20 of the 50 for the rebate. Keep it coming MS.

  • マリオ

    Where is Skullgirls Encore?

    • King

      That’s What I’m wondering to.

  • beardyman3218

    Twitch streaming doesnt work unless you set your privacy to adult, please fix this, it wasnt stated when the app came out. I cant stream because i have custom settings, Good deals btw.

    • Cookies!

      You have to have an adult account i think, different than adult privacy

      • beardyman3218

        I have an adult account but it keeps telling me i need one and i have tried all of the privacy settings that were mentioned in majors twitch post but still nothing, maybe its a glitch with the app, other people are having this problem on the twitch forums but no one from twitch is helping on the forums.

    • evilfangs .

      No I’ve custom settings on my privacy and I can stream and watch Twitch just fine.

      • beardyman3218

        HOW? What magic is this you speak of?

        • evilfangs .

          Are you sure you have “Broadcast gameplay” set to allow? It’s the far right setting

          • beardyman3218

            Yes, it’s set to allow. It worked once and now it wont work at all.

          • evilfangs .

    3. Mega Man 9 and 10
    4. Halo Spartan Assault
    5. Halo Wars

    Also, please feel free to comment any other games you would like to see on sale as well.

    • Does Not Equal

      You gave that same list nine hours ago.

      • Cookies!

        So, I will probably do it again and again and again…. I will not give up until these games are on sale

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Yawn! Your quest is futile.

          • Cookies!

            YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED! RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Break down that word assimilated and see what you end up with. an ASSimILaTERD. OK I added an R to make it work but still funny.

      • BigBernard

        That’s fascinating.

    • Sigognac

      For the pleasure of the exercise (and gently facilitating the work of the department in charge of the “player’s feedbacks”), why not offering different games that have never (some almost) been on sale:
      - Lucidity
      - Sherlock Holmes (both games)
      And “Family games” that have never been on sale too:
      - Toy Story Mania, Kung Fu Panda, Legend of Spyro, Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise, Madagascar 3, and more… (you surely know some others). Let’s think to kids too.

      • Cookies!

        Spyro would be nice, lego games are always pretty enjoyable. Maybe a dash of Sonic :)

        • maxy

          I really liked the fact that you called me a kid,because I like CoD,You want all the games that little kids play! You are probably the kid!

          • Cookies!

            And you are the hypocrit. You tell me not to bash on CoD so you turn around and bash games I like to play. I am 18, and grew up playing Nintendo games, seriously, back off.

          • maxy

            No mate im not bashing them but the logic says these games are for kids and nobody needs them! PS: Im not “the hypocrit” because I didn’t called you a hypocrite.

          • Sigognac

            Sorry to have left the subject.
            But let’s see things simply; you are bot right.
            It seems unusual to say it recently, but Call of Duty have many qualities, and in a very different way, Spyro, Sonic and Lego games are quality games too.
            And for the last ones, with respect, may I precise “they are for kids and nobody needs them”, except, precisely… kids !
            And some more “light” players too.
            I know several; both are in my surounding, and rarely I find a game on sale for them.
            Ps. I know, some would say I should be on an other console for this..(smile) But I think there are good ones on Xbox, only less put forward.

          • maxy

            Yes I know that these you mentioned are quality games,but if somebody will look at these game are on sale,everybody will moan and whine! and most of the people who wanted these games would have them,so nobody would look at them! and I know these games are for light players. Im sorry if I offended you and being so straight forward. :))

          • Sigognac

            Thank you, Maxy. You can be reassured. I understood what you meant and there was no offense at all.
            You are right about the fact that a “kid games sale” could be received with less enthousiasm than a new Call of Duty one, but who knows.. Maybe the amateurs of this kind do not dare to reveal here ? ;)
            But a sale for kids could be offered in parralel at some occasion, like for Easter maybe?

          • maxy

            I must be the one who thanking you,but whatever! and yes that sale would be perfect on Easter or Summer! :)

      • maxy

        Oh come on! That games are for little kids who the hell would need them and the first ones you mentioned are underrated the worst games ever! I have them and I regretted it!

        • Sigognac

          About the two first, I have yet to know about the qualities of those games. I never played Sherlock Holmes and only a bit of Lucidity. So I will take your word about it.
          But I just tried to mention that there are many “less popular” games that can be interesting for players that like discovery, investigation or humorous games. Maybe you could remember other titles (for example, I found Lucha Fury interesting for two-players, but it was erased).

          • Dylan

            The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is a solid adventure game. NOT an action game by any means.

          • Sigognac

            Thank you. That is – amidst others – what I seek. So it should be good for those who like this style..

          • maxy

            Yes,but after of 1 hour of playing it ends up boring,thats why I hate it.

          • maxy

            Oh well its your decision about it after all! Well if ms will put ‘less popular’ titles everybody will just moan about it! But I like your suggestions with that look you explained to me!

    • maxy

      Do you still need that garbage? Red Dead Redemption would be great!

      • Dylan

        People have different tastes, get over it.

        Variety is good, parity kills the industry.

        • maxy

          Yes I know! , but lots of these titles were on sale before!

          • Cookies!

            Only ones I know of that have been on sale were Castle Crashers, and Both Mega Mans, and Maybe MvC: Origins (not sure though). Unfortunately I missed them and would like to like to see them go on sale again

          • maxy

            Yes every game you mentioned were on sale and Halo Wars if im not mistaken and MvC origins too except Halo spartan assault.

    • Lucky13X

      Second Spartan Assault but on XB1

  • Cookies!

    What i wanna see for next month’s GwG:
    1. On demand Racing/Fighting Title
    2. Racing Arcade/Fighting Title

    • Sigognac

      I agree. A racing title would be interesting. And a fighting title too. Maybe in this order. There are many valuable titles in those categories.

    • maxy

      1)If its dirt showdown yes but not others
      2)Mortal combat arcade collection would be great,but not others

      • Cookies!

        Get out of that little box of yours, there are plenty of other great racing/fighting games (im done arguing about CoD).

        • maxy

          No there aren’t! These are the good ones! and why? I begun liking it!

          • Cookies!

            Not saying those other games aren’t decent, but you don’t have to lock down your choices. Mortal kombat is pretty good, never played dirt so I won’t judge it.

            Here are some good fighting games for Xbox:
            - *Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and *Marvel vs Capcom 2
            - Dragonball Z: Budokai HD Collection
            - SoulCalibur Series (4 is probably my highest recommendation)

            Here are some good racing games for Xbox:
            - Sonic and Sega Racing Transformed (alot like Mario Kart)
            - Any of the **Forza Motorsport Games and Forza Horizon

            *Unfortunately UMvC3 and MvC2 are no longer available on Demand/Arcade, would recommend picking up UMvC3 (Not MvC3) though if you get the chance, however MvC: Origins(want) is.

            **Forza Horizon is the only Forza on demand

          • maxy

            I know you are right I locked down the choices :(

      • infinitecognizance

        MK Arcade collection is a terrible port. I bought it on sale a couple years ago for like $2 and I regret it still.

        • maxy

          I don’t think so I played the trial many times and I didn’t have any problems with it!

  • beardyman3218

    I found a way around twitch streaming with custom privacy settings but if i have my settings on see if your online blocked or friends only and i go to profile and appear online, do i appear online or not? EDIT: it has not stopped working.

  • evilfangs .

    Woo! My copy of Titanfall came a day early, I just need to install it then can get my game on!

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      you must live in the uk.

      • evilfangs .

        Yep. Game comes out tomorrow but got mine a day early.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    the update made things even more whack as far as looking at my achievements and omg. i think i hate xbox one now. lamest console i have ever bought next to the Sega 32x.

    • WARLORD

      Don’t forget Sega CD….

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        i actually liked that console. the games were bad but they were cool b/c nothing was like it. the 32x just had no redeeming factors.

        • WARLORD

          There was only one game on Sega CD i liked, Sewer Shark. 32X it was DOOM. That was back in the day when about 90% of the games were cr@p

  • Sigognac

    Giana Sisters seems visually pleasant.
    Do someone have an opinion for having played it?

    • Shakeslikecrazy

      It’s OK, not great like the “Super Mario Bros” it was supposed to have ripped ages ago. You’ll be safe for under $5 though as it’s worth that price.

      • Sigognac

        Thank you for the advice.

    • Stephen Nowak

      Was playing Giana Sisters last night, I like the fact the game uses the d-pad. I have some converters to have a snes pad work on the 360, if button mapping works with the snes pad I’ll be buying Giana Sisters this weekend.

      • Stephen Nowak

        I bought the game, took me about 2 hours to beat the demo. I’m a lousy player but was totally hooked by the graphics and button pressing. the game is basically a 2d platformer of ikaruga

  • beardyman3218

    On xbox one can we PLEASE have an option to delete multiple videos in the upload app instead of having to delete one by one.

    • Lucky13X

      Or just upload multiple videos for archiving to One Drive.

  • itsjustme

    Anyone familiar with the Penny Arcade games? There are 2 arcade games and 2 indie games in the series. I think I’d like to finally pick them up if they go on sale (serious request here). The Sam and Max games are $20 each. They deserve a price cut. The demos were funny, and I bet the full games are good. I’m unsure of Wallace and Gromit. I don’t know if I’ll like their type of humor. There are 4 games in the series that I can find. I see that the demos are available, but there’s no option to purchase.

    • itsjustme

      I just did a search on Wallace and Gromit. The games were delisted in January 2014. They’re gone forever from the 360, it seems, but still available for download from your purchase history.

      • Sigognac

        Your suggestions are good, and are amidst those less popular but interesting games. For Wallace & Gromit, it is unfortunate, since it is an interesting serie, as films as much as games.
        Before to “delist” these games we would appreciate a last occasion (sale for example) to acquire them (Lucha Fury was another that disapeared and never have been on sale).

  • Lucky13X

    Even though you have many games at the $5.00 rate, I either have them or am spending too much time on my other past sale games. May get Earth Defense Force though.

    • Does Not Equal

      You’d be better off with the new EDF than Insect Armageddon. Sandlot makes the best EDFs.

  • pie

    Sanctum 2 has been super fun this week!
    I’m thinking of getting the expansion that just went up as well.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      I’ve been thinking about picking this game up and the expansion as well. The demo was pretty cool they did a good job of mixing and FPS with a Tower Defense game.

  • Sagat

    FOUL PLAY very good game. Same like Castle Crashers but only 3700pcs sold??? omg :(

  • digitallife

    Can we get some of these xbox live arcade games on xbl? Or at least some new demo’s? thanks.
