Snowblind Map Pack in Gears of War 2 - 400 MSP 160 MSPThis winter-themed pack brings you four Gears of War 2 maps sure to heat up your multiplayer and Horde action. Hunt your enemies down in the snowy day-lit heights or the dark tunnels of Under Hill. The massive industrial complex of Grind Yard gives numerous bunkers for cover, but watch out for snipers high in the flanking buildings. Beware the falling monuments in Courtyard, where wide-open spaces give you plenty of opportunities to gun down your enemies—unless they strike first. And due to fan demand, the popular Gears 1 map Fuel Depot makes its return.Download link: http://marketplace.xbox.com/Product/Snowblind-Multiplayer-Ma...

Nice to see plenty of stuff, and love the theme.

I'll not be bothering with anything though this week.

Love the Snowblind pack for the Winter theme! Adding a little red this holiday session! Too bad I pick up anything that has to do with GoW the day of release (except avatar stuff). But 3 on 3 NHL sounds fun. Might have my eye on that one this week.

Gears? I'd forgotten about that game, it's pretty old now so I doubt many will buy that. May get NHL.

Well, I don't have Polar Panic so why not. I recommend 3 on 3 NHL Arcade to any and all who like the sound of an easy 200gs for 200msp. It plays a lot like the earlier NHL Hitz games; overly simple arcade style hockey.
AdolphMarx the great.

Just bought 3 on 3, thinking about Polar Panic but it doesn't look great!

3 on 3 is a fantastic game and certainly worth 200msp, im unsure about buying polar panic, i'll probably buy it anyways though as im a sucker for arcade games.

Definitely getting NHL 3 on 3. Easy 200GS I hear, and it's only 200msp!

Nothing for me this week. If anyone hasn't already got the Gears maps though, its a bargain price to pick them up!.

Very tempted by both the XBLA games. Easy 200G for only 200MSP is a little hard to pass up, and I've no idea what Polar Panic is, it looks like fun!

NOTE: I'd look into making sure these servers are still up. They had rumored that the servers would be shut down back in January. If so, the most you will be able to get is 150 GS in this game. So, if you're a completionist, I'd look into that.

Also, any word on Polar Panic? I was intrigued by this when it came out last year.

Myth! I brought the game after then, and had no trouble playing online.
