    I'm guessing you need to buy a transfer kit as well though? Thinking USB stick might be a cheaper way to go (I don't think I'll need more than 32GB extra storage)

    Why not just buy them now,but only complete the download for each one when your ready to play it. In other words when you've finished with one,delete it to make space for the next. You dont pay twice.

    Yeh I've already deleted anything superfluous on my hard drive though, so I'd only have room to download, perhaps, fez from that list. Then I don't know what I'd do. That is, sort of, what I was planning to do, although I just don't think it's workable

    You could always just get a memory stick in the short term, it's not like you have to stop using that if you do decide to replace the drive later.

    Yeh that's probably what I'll do tbh. I'm guessing that the USB storage operates 'within' the main xbl profile on the hard drive?

    You can use the 20GB and the 60GB drives at the same time, just keeping different games on both, and switching between them as needed.

    You can now store your profile on both HDs so don't need to worry about the lengthy 'download profile' nonsense anymore.

    Ah that's worth knowing, cheers rob

    No, you don't need a transfer cable. I used a USB stick to transfer my 20Gb

    Where are people seeing that walking dead episode 1 is free? It's showing as 400msp for me.

    I think it's that it will be free on the 28th for a day :)

    The DLC is reduced on the 28th, I think the rumour (or confirmed, I'm not sure) is that episode 1 is free from Christmas day to New Year.

    I think Walking Dead free from the 25th is confirmed isn't it?

    Actually, I may have only read that on here, so maybe not.

    It was in that original CAG post when it all leaked but it wasn't on the leaky Microsoft web pages so I'm not sure where it came from. The DLC sale is absolutely real, I guess we'll just have to wait and see on the 'freebie' bit. But the first episode is free on iOS at the minute, so it's not beyond question.

    It is down to $10 in the US store, maybe they screwed up? Or maybe it's just not on sale in our region, the scoundrels!

    I found it usually takes a bit for the EU (NL) store to catch up with the usual (rubbish) deal of the week. Seems the same with these deals.
    Quite odd as one would expect the timezones to work in our favour :)

    Gah, I was going to buy some points over lunch purely for Rayman (and Dust when that hits the sale).

    So, how long are we talking for MotN and Trine 2? Worth getting both?

    I hope Walking Dead is 50% off which would make it 1000 points for everything. Think I have around that if I get Trials Doom DLC and maybe Fez.

    Just picked up Trine 2 and Mark of the Ninja. What with Fez last night, The Scorchers DLC for Rage yesterday morning, From a Different Sky 10 for Dragons Dogma, I am the Boss for Clash of Heroes last week and The Walking Dead just after Christmas this is looking to be a very expensive month. 2000 points and counting. I'm hoping that Blerk is correct and Walking Dead can be had for a total of 800 points.

    First episode is free so likely 800 points, I'll be having some of that.

    Not liking* these sales, so far I've bought Joe 2, Hell yeah and Trine. Spending way more than I should be.

    * Loving it really

    Edit - too slow

    The walking dead, fez and mark of the ninja are all good deals. Trine 2 isn't very good though, imo, even in co op. Others seem to like it so for 400 its worth a risk.

    Everyone should pick up trials evo and dlc when that sale is on. Joe danger 2 is good value for 400 too

    I'm wondering what they're going to be asking for the Borderlands 2 season pass. If that's half price too I'm not sure I'll be able to resist.

    Thanks, think I'll just stick with MotN for now then. I won't get a chance to play the demo, but will probably take a punt if it's as good as people are saying it is.

    Ah, I didn't think Ep1 of Walking Dead was free, more a trial for a week. 800 points for the lot is even better. Fingers crossed for 50%.

    Mark of the Ninja is awesome. Would love to play it again with a fresh mind. Challenges and different styles are just perfect. Think I'll play through it again soon.

    Thinking Trine 2 looks quite good but just don't know if I want to do a platformer... I see R.A.W. is down to 400. Is that worth it? Quite fancied a dungeon crawling diablo-esq hack 'n' slash...

    Trine isn't really a platformer, it's more a puzzle game with some very ropey platformer mechanics.

    And most of the puzzles can be solved with the "Conjure a platform with the wizard" method.

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

    Indeed, the platforming mechanics are awful. The puzzles are better if you try and solve them properly, rather than just using the wizard, but you're right. Most games are fun if played 3 player co op with friends, but I've really struggled with it.

    Still, others seem to love it, and its well thought of on metacritic. If nothing else its a very pretty game, at least
