      No one is putting a gun to your head and forcing you to buy these games. If you are that disappointed just don’t even bother checking out the deals.

        pointless statement, he has to check the deals so maybe on that particular day it really is a deal and not some storage cleaning from MS. Lets hope they save the best for Christmas.

        Why shouldn’t he bother? For all u know he’s probably a paying gold member and interested in a good deal. Is that a crime?

      Yes. I still think Castlevania SotN (Symphony of the Night) holds up today. It is widely considered to be an all time classic of the PSone generation. Great looking 2D art, a deceptively deep weapon system, and a huge, sprawling map to explore. It If you’ve heard the term “Metroidvania” to describe games like Shadow Complex, this game is where the “vania” bit comes from. For three bucks and change, I think it’s a great place to start.

        It came out on Saturn and the Saturn version actually had more rooms and better sound quality.

        Eh. between the downgraded visuals and the tacked-on extra content, I’ll stick with PSone.

      Only Symphony of the night.

      Mirror of fate is a horrible non-castlevania game

      Castlevania HD is a dead online multiplayer based game.

      Symphony of the Night is widely considered to be one of the best Castlevania games(and one of the best games on the PS1).If you’re going to get any of them then go for this one

      Mirror of Fate is a prequel to the Lords of Shadow game that came out a few years ago.While I enjoyed LoS it caused a bit of controversy among Castlevania fans as it had way more in common with games like God of War than previous Castlevaina games

      HD is pretty bad.It’s basically a grind heavy timed boss rush game that’s no fun in singleplayer and barely tolerable in multiplayer.Online has been dead for a while though

      No predictions, it;s just that they start the new offer before taking down the previous one, so you get to see the two offers at the same time, before they even anounce it

    It blows my mind, if you think about it.
    Xbox 360: The only previous gen system that charged to play online.

    And yet, PC gets mods, better graphics, and ridiculously awesome sales on Steam, HumbleBundle, GOG, etc.
    And PS3 users consistently get decent to good games when subscribed to PS Plus.

    I really wish you guys would cut some GOOD deals for us for a change, Microsoft.

      Personally I found last week’s Ubisoft sale a good example of how their future sales should be not this bloated repeat sales for 14 days garbage going atm.

        Fair enough – it was on the right track. I admit, I -did- enjoy Blood Dragon’s discount. But I, personally, have been with Xbox for five years… and I spend at least one moment a week looking at Steam and shaking my head.

        I don’t mean to sound like I’m hating Microsoft – I want them to do better, for all of their consumers, and that’s what I’m pushing for with my comments. I want there to be SOME competition, as that’s when everyone – across all systems – gets the best service. But I think this may be the turning point, where Sony takes the lead as console powerhouse (with PC still leagues above consoles, in general).

        PC will always be leagues ahead. Sony likely would beat Microsoft as they are showing themselves as more customer friendly then MS

      It blows my mind that you think the 360 was the first console that required a fee to play games online. Both the original Xbox and the Dreamcast required a fee to access online pay, though Sega didn’t implement that until late in the console’s life.

        “previous gen system” could be referring to the last generation.

      • Silas

        I never said it was the first. I specifically referred to this past gen.
        However, you’re furthering my point: of two of the previous, one is an extension of the current problem; the other clearly did -so- well from this model.

        That’s sort of my point, Microsoft has a bad habit of putting things on “sale” for a higher price-point than that of a previous sale for the exact same game 6 months ago. Why would I pay $7.50 for something when it was $5 in the past?

    Ok 50% off Mirror of Fate isn’t bad as it’s a fairly recent game but SOTN and HD were on sale earlier in the year at a bigger discount(75% off iirc)

    • E.Nich

      If you saw them at 75% then you don’t have to worry that now they are at 50%, because you already own them, right? RIGHT?
      I paid full price for SotN and I thought (and still think) that it was a bargain.

        The DLC isn’t worth it. Mirror of Fate isn’t even that good. The best part of the “collection” is CLoS1 & the CLoS2 demo.
