    @robthehermit

    Walking Dead: first EP is free. At full price the remaining 4 would set you back 2k - I think they'll be reduced though so you should pay less.

    FEZ: The title / loading screen, presentation and soundtrack alone are worth 400 points. Some of the puzzles are deep deep wormholes and the level of thought and design behind some of them is incredible. My GOTY.

    I've just blind coughed 600 on Mark Ninja and 400 on Joe Danger 2. It's fucking dangerous accessing Live! on your iPhone in bed with it all synced to your Visa. Steam sales soon - also payment linked on this phone. Danger!!

    400 points for JD2 is a steal though. I was lucky enough to get it free in a raptr giveaway, but would have been more than happy to pay that for it.

    This sale may be finally the time to pick up braid. Is it permanently 800 points now or is that a sale price has it ever been 400?

    Braid is permanently 800 now, its well worth playing.

    I'm hoping the Lego games will still be on sale Thursday morning...they don't usually change until later do they?

    Thoroughly enjoying my replay of LEGO Indy 1, it's been a few years since I played it. Thanks to the sale for that.

    Anything you buy you can re-download from your download history, even if games are de-listed. I've re-downloaded Psychonauts and Outrun Arcade since both were removed from the Marketplace.

    Just been on and picked up Fez for 400 points, and Mark of the Ninja for 600!

    Was expecting less discount, so pleased they went for half price.

    I defy anyone to be disappointed with Fez, it's lovely!

    As for Walking Dead, I theorised (i.e. guessed) that the entire game would end up being 800 points - episode 1 for free, four more episodes reduced from 400 each to 200 each. It might not end up as good as that, but that's been the pattern so far with everything else, right?


    Grabbing Mark of the Ninja, and also Hell Yeah! Nobody else given that a whirl? It seemed pretty cool from the trial.

    Mark of the Ninja, Fez, Trine 2 are all bargains at the original price! Would recommend to anyone who'd listen

    Loved Rayman Origins too and although I did trade it in due owning too many games. Couldn't recommend enough.

    Is Hell Yeah worth getting?

    I liked the demo a lot. It seems to be sort of like an early Sonic crossed with Metroid, with some RPG-style levelling up added in too. Going to give it a bash at 600.

    I have about 1000 points left, I think Rayman will be purchased.

    I can't recommend Mark of the Ninja enough, I bought it a while back and have recently been clearing some backlog so decided to give it a bash. Oh my it's a wonderful game. I even tried to get no kills and no alarms on most levels which meant dozens of restarts, which is normally something that pisses me off immeasurably and so I usually just say "fuck it" and play on anyway slaughtering everything.

    Portable view - Never forget.

    Still operating on an ol' 20GB hard drive, I've already deleted tons of stuff as it is to have what I already do. Really want Fez, Ninja and Trine 2 but just don't think I can without buying more storage

    Blimey, I've no idea how you even operate on 20gb. Thought of just adding a USB stick to get another chunk of space?

    I bought a 120Gb drive off ebay to replace my 20Gb. Best thing I ever did!

    Edit: Also ordered 4200 points to add to my 1100. I plan on doing some business during the sales. walking dead and a few others will be mine.

    Plus I have finally bought Skyrim.

    The missus will have a fit if she finds out! :)

    @imamazed Get a USB stick, the Xbox can use upto 32GB now, or add a pair of them and add about 64GB.

    Biggest USB stick I own is 1GB! Could have a look for one in my lunch break I suppose, what's the maximum size the 360 supports?

    EDIT - thanks crow. I suppose even if I don't get the extra storage now, I can still buy them today and download later

    Oh can it do 32 GB sticks now? That's much better. Thats why I upgraded my HDD. 2x 16Gb stick and a 20Gb drive were still pushing it for a while.

    It'd probably help if i didn't buy so much xbla stuff that I haven't even started yet...

    Anyone want 1800 ms points? I bought them from electronic first but they didn't send them quick enough to buy the Lego games.

    14. Pm me if interested

    Yeh I've got so many games and stuff on my profile but long since deleted...

    Any idea where I might be able to get USB sticks not on the internet? I'd rather be able to go into town on my lunch break and pick up one today than order off the internet.

    it might just be worth looking on ebay for an old 60GB drive locally, as they usually go for 10-15, probably the same sort of price as a large USB stick anyway.

    The sell sticks in all the supermarkets, Boots, WH Smiths, photography shops... pretty much anywhere, tbh. Much cheaper from the 'net, though.

    @Blerk Yeh I don't mind paying a coupla quid more than the web, so I'll see what town can offer me. Could look in CEX/Game for a second hand xbox hard drive I suppose.

    I've just remembered there's the spend 2000 / gain 100 points offer through Xbox Rewards which expires tomorrow.

    I'm currently on 1800 points, so does anyone have any current indie game type recommendations? If not it's Call Me Maybe for Rock Band (yes, I know. No, I don't care) or Maybe the ilomilo DLC...

    I managed to grab a 120gb HDD from Cex around a year or so ago for 30 quid. Well worth it.

    Pretty sure that offer is for the whole of December. The 21st "Apocalypse" thing is that you get any points in your account credited instantly before the 21st.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    That was my understanding of the deal too. Should make that figure pretty easily looking at the sales. :-)
