    I seem to remember that last year Deal of the Week went all rubbish during 'Summer of Arcade' but there was a good one soon after.

    Maybe they dont want to distract attention (money) from the new titles?

    I'd agree, usually, except they were rubbish before Summer of Arcade too! :)
  • Deleted user 13 August 2013 15:39:50
    True enough...

    Oh well Dead Rising 2 is free from Friday so that will do for me!

    Yeah, I guess I shouldn't grumble too much.

    Is Case Zero the prequel to DR2, incidentally? That's free too, remember.

    @Blerk It is a prequel of sorts. It's set 2 years after DR and 3 years before DR3. The wiki page says it's an hour long (12 hours in game time)

    I thought that was the case. I might give that a go first, just in case I think it's shit. No point doing a multi-gig DR2 download unless I'm actually going to play it, right? :)

    I quite enjoyed Case Zero, it's almost an extended demo for DR2 I suppose.

    On the downloading issue, remember you don't actually need to download it.

    'Purchasing' it on xbox.com and then immediately removing it from the download queue means it's treated as re-downloadable if you ever want to pick it up in future (I did the same thing with Fable 3, doubt I'll ever want to play it, but at least this way I have the option)

    Looks interesting, although I've never heard of the comic. If it's anywhere near as good as The Walking Dead you can count me in!

    In my head the conversation on here between Blerk and Murbal was accompanied by a Spectrum style high pitch farty noise as the text rolled out letter by letter across the screen.

    that's what Sony do, but you also find that games cost around 2-3 more on PSN compared to XBLA.
    Don't forget Sony also demands a minimum 5 wallet transaction, even when what you want is less. Which has stung me many a time.

    So they aren't totally guilt-free in the 'short term ripoff' stakes either, even if it's not as bad as buying points you can't spend.

    I surmise that's our date for the dash update, then. I hope they've made it even slower again! That would be awesome. :(

    Best thing would be some sort of minimalist option, where they cut out all the crap and just allow you to quickly get to the games.

    Not all at once though, right?

    Still, might as well spend my points on Brothers.

    I was going to tempt fate by saying "is that even possible?" seeing as it often hangs for about a minute before I can even access my profile or installed games. Don't even get me started about comedian 'friends' that spam me with party/game invites as soon as I log in. Bastards can see that I'm connected to Live before I can.

    Prepare to be amazed by the awesome. Someone has preempted your wishes.

    It seems to have been getting steadily slower to log in week by week. I've got four accounts on my machine now and it takes ages to get to the account select screen, ages to actually log in, and then nothing works right for a minute or so while all the bloody adver-boxes fill in.

    It's the videos. I swear it's the videos. Everything was great before they arrived.

    Only Silent Hill: Homecoming isn't available in the UK. Total shitfarts as I really wanted to get that and Downpour together in some Silent Hill based buying frenzy. Oh well, purchased Downpour, looks like Ebay for Homecoming.

    I'm presuming that even with a discount the HD collection is really not worth it...?

    @fletch7100

    Same here. Will download when I'm home I don't think its started yet though.

    Might be alright its a game made for PC so it might not transition well

    Homecoming's not a good game at all, they probably saved you from yourself there! :)
  • Deleted user 20 August 2013 16:53:47
    Is it really that bad? I feel like I must play it regardless!

    It's a rubbish game, not just a rubbish Silent Hill game. I did a whole bunch of ranting about it while I was playing it but I can't remember which thread it was in.
  • Deleted user 20 August 2013 16:56:42
    Ha ha, well, could be I've been saved then! Maybe UK MS is a fairer judge of games than US. It's not even on GoD at all.

    Still, looking forward to downpour. Not expecting greatness mind.
