    Only played the first Darkness and thought it was awful (although story was decent), and that was after looking forward to it for ages. Sold it at CEX within an hour of completing it.

    sales up...

    Pool Nation is a very nice little pool game, I picked it up last time it was on sale, and would recommend it.

    Seem to remember Serious Sam has a few fans here as well, although never played any of them myself.

    Never heard of Castlestorm, but metacritic suggests a half decent tower defence / Angry Birds hybrid. Naughty Bear is meant to be pretty awful I think.

    CastleStorm - 1.68
    Pool Nation - 3.37
    Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise - 4.99

    Serious Sam 3: BFE 1.68
    "Serious Sam 3: BFE - Jewel of the Nile" DLC - 1.68
    Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter 1.68
    Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter - 1.68
    Serious Sam: Double D XXL / 1.68

    Castlestorm is from pinball fx makers zen and recieved decent reviews. It's 79% on meta critic and I reckon it's worth a punt. Anyone have a view on naughty bear?

    +1 on the 'hearing it is shite.'

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

    That's fairly decisive! I've rediscovered the joy of pinball fx so I'm ignoring the sales this week

    sales up. All Games on Demand, and pretty decent reductions.

    from memory, Resident Evil 4 never had a full retail release, and doesn't get reduced very often. I'm probably the only person here who has never played it though...

    DmC: Devil May Cry 9.99
    Lost Planet 3 13.39
    Resident Evil 4 HD 7.49
    Resident Evil Revelations 9.99


    Also all the DmC DLC at half price

    DmC definitely.

    I'll be picking up that Vergil DLC half price.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    I'd try DmC before you buy if you're a fan of the other entries.

    Loved the original, two was poor, loved three, four was poor.

    Found DmC to be similar to 2/4, and not because his hair was a different colour, either.
  • Deleted user 12 November 2013 15:14:44
    See. I've never really played dmc much. Fancied resi but have played them all so dunno if I can be bothered with it.

    Downloading demo of dmc...

    I've bought it on PS2 and Wii, but I'm considering it for 360. What's wrong with me?

    @imamazed I have it on the Gamecube and Wii and I'm going to buy it on the 360. I haven't played it in years and hopefully this version will be easier on the eyes. The Gamecube version has thick black bars on the top and bottom too.

    Contrast seems a nice little game from the demo. Will wait for the reviews

    was just going to post about that!

    Both this weeks releases look like intriguing indie puzzle platformers. Will certainly try the demos for both anyway.

    I've also grabbed RE4, so it better be as good as everyone says!

    @dancingrob

    don't worry its still decent. RE4 still craps all over RE and 6 combined.

    sales now up, and it's a decent one.

    Dishonored at 8.24 as GOD

    all the DLC also half price, I'm pretty sure that's the first time sale for most of it (although I vaguely remember buying one of them for buttons earlier in the year...)

    Seeing as I got it for Christmas last year and haven't played it yet, not a lot of good for me though!
  • Deleted user 19 November 2013 14:35:40
    @dancingrob yeah the most recent dlc hasn't been reduced so I've nabbed it. Not played the first part as was waiting for second to come down.

    These offer of the week's are actually pretty damn good.

    Hm. DMC 1 was the reason I bought a PS2. I hated 2. I adored 3. And felt 4 was a step back at best, bland at worst. And as a side note, Bayonetta (effectively Kamiya's spiritual sequel) is among my top 10 favourite games ever.

    Yet I thought DmC was brilliant game. Easily 9/10 material.

    Nelson said last night that there'd be a full list of deals on his blog this afternoon.

    I've got about $3 on a US account that's due to expire in about two weeks so I'm hoping for something super-cheap (and not shit) for me to spend that on.
