these prices are going to have to be wild for me to get excited.

BF deals got me spoiled.

Why can't we get the following games on sale?

Altered Beast
Comix Zone
Ecco The Dolphin
Fatal Fury Special
Gunstar Heroes
Garou MOW
NeoGeo Battle Coliseum
Phantasy Star II
Samurai Shodown 2
Triggerheart Excelica
R.Type Dimensions
Raystorm HD
Torchlight

Did the person who came up with that list knows Dungeon Fighter is not a fighting game like the other two? Did they see the word Fighter in the title and decided to add it on the list?

Mark of the Ninja
HELL YEAH! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit (for my nephew)
Dust: An Elysian Tail (for my nephew)

Oh well. I'm a bit curious about Mark of the Ninja, but there's no real pressure, and it'll probably get a better price during the upcoming Steam sale.
 
#19
Is that 400 points for the entire season of the walking dead or for each episode?
where are you seeing prices? at the link? (they are blocked at work)

no way in hell you'll get all eps for $5 though. not gonna happen.

Will keep an eye on discounts for Borderlands and Trials anyway :)
all Trials stuff is worth more than full price easy. ANY discount makes it a BUY NOW DUMMY situation.

Even if the price cuts don't turn out to be great its at least nice to see that this promotion's emphasis is on games more so than avatar items. I didn't find the BF deals so bad because of the prices, it had a lot more to do with the shit content they were trying to sell us.

Hopefully the prices on Fez and TWD will be good enough to make me buy.

R.Type Dimensions
Even though Southend/Tozai did the work, the R-Type license is still held by Irem. I imagine the dire condition they are in has something to do with it. (all Irem games got pulled from PSN, so I'm kinda surprised Dimensions is still up on XBLA)

Oooooh. Definitely interested in Fez, Walking Dead, Dust, and the Trials DLC. Depending on cost I might grab the Borderlands 2 season pass and a couple other things.

But the game been out for like 3 years now or longer. Surely they can drop the price or put it on sale if the license is going to run out soon.

I've been really close to pulling the trigger and buying it but I get this feeling that if I do it will go on sale the following week.
