So if Microsoft can't figure out the expiring find then I need to buy stuff. About $62 buy July 9th. Was thinking of Super Time Force, and open to 360 suggestions too.

Super Time Force and Child of light are both great options.

KI, Spartan Assault, Max, Strider.
Is the Bioshock Infinite Season Pass worthy? Ep 1 + 2 looked interesting.

The season pass for Dead Rising 3 was a bust.
Got the Watch Dogs pass because it looked cool.

Sixty Second Shooter Prime, Super Time Force and Powerstar Golf. Theres a trial of PG the other two you won't regret though, great games

Child of light looks good for the fiancee. But she enjoys playing on Playstation more.

STF is pretty much a given. Just hoping they can fix it so I don't *have* to buy things for the sake of using the funds.

anyone else having an issue downloading/playing the thief demo? every time i try to launch it i get an error message saying there was a problem downloading an update. it gives me the option to try again (which does the same thing), check my connection (which is fine), or cancel (which cancels out of the game). i've uninstalled and re-downloaded and installed 3 separate times....

according to reddit
"Br1zzygarnetblack67 3 points 23 hours ago
this happened to me too. I got it to work by going to the xbox home screen, then back into the game. Somehow that worked."

I saw this problem reported elsewhere. Think they are researching it. Such an odd thing to happen.

So it's too late to download Dark Souls, right? My 360 is dying and it would be better to just download the game instead of playing it off my disc.

And how does a games on demand version of Max Payne 3 work? Or any multi disc game for that matter?

Are you downloading it to an external drive?

Yes it's too late for Dark Souls. The free games are Street Fighter and Charlie Murder

Do you think Banjo Kazooie / Tooie will ever go on sale...? I sold my N64 versions knowing the XBLA versions would have better image quality / framerate, but $15 each is pretty steep...

A banjo bundle pack with Kazooie & Tooie in it leaked on the marketplace a couple months ago, but nothing ever came of it yet. I don't think I've seen Kazooie/Tooie on sale since they came out to be honest.

doubt it. they were on sale once way back when. its not happening anytime soon.
$15 would be pretty steep if they werent two of the best games on the n64 and by extension, xbla. the remasters are very well done and i dont feel as though you should have any problems at that price point. its more than reasonable.

To hell with "DEALS" of a 8 months old game only dropped to 49.99 (RYSE). Short game with average reception. I was willing to try it at less than 30 but this a deal only in name. I've seen it cheaper in stores already...

went down in price again?? lol it was 25 last week.

i would have bought Ryse for 30... come on MS get your shit together..
At $30 it's actually worth it because the game is actually pretty good. Might jump on the season pass though.

Thanks for the tip. I'm Euro based though but I'm sure I will find nice deals over here eventually. I'm just baffled by what they call "deals"
Yeah or wait until this eventually becomes free on GwG.

I don't know what they are thinking that's pretty lame deal, if they sold it at $30 that would leave room for possible dlc purchases, that was my plan but nope will have to wait for something else.

Making it real shitty for those that want digital only.

Anyone try Worms? Looking for a good MP game I can do locally with the wife. Peggle 2 gets old with the one mode.

Good deals this week. Unfortunately I have missed out on the Horizon deal, but I like me some Lego awesomeness.

anybody heard of any upcoming Indie games coming soon ? I'm annoyed that they just release these games out of nowhere. sometimes they just announce the dates a couple of days before they release. I know these games aren't much so far but I still have a gaming budget to stick too lol

Valiant Hearts is supposed to drop sometime today. The stealth releases with no notice is odd. I'm used to pubs pimping their games.
It probably has to do with them being indie and can't afford having ign blitz the title. Likely you have to be connected to them on Facebook or Twitter to hear something. Aldi word of mouth from indie centric sites delivering hype.

true but I thought that indie had more control over the release dates and I assumed they would go out on advertising the game oh well I suppose I'm sure it'll get better soon. its still in it's infancy

They are indie games, it's up to the devs to do that stuff surely.

Id settle for two days. The ps versions got confirmed on ps blog but nothing by Xbox, weird

Noticed that too. I hope that doesn't frustrate the ID@Xbox devs. Especially the ones without the resources to advertise. A blog post or anything really would go a long way and the attitude of "it's your problem" really won't attract the smaller devs to the platform.

i think that has more to do with the devs than ms, since the devs can release whenever they want alot of them seem to release as soon as they pass certification. But you still see the games getting promoted on major nelsons site, that is pretty equivalent to the ps blog

yeah some Release dates announcements would be welcomed. the ID@Xbox is still in it's infancy and it's pretty good now with time and feedback from gamers and developers it could be great

Only just seen the discount on Ryse, ha! Are these "deals" just going to get progressively worse with each offering? The fact that Phil Spencer himself even highlighted this game as part of the deals and they have it on their dedicated DwG page with just 17% off makes it all the more hilarious (and sad). No thanks, MS.

And to think that many at GAF were speculating about Ryse being a free game with Live Gold next month... yeah, right.
