I believe I will wait to see the Black Friday and Cyber Monday one day sales. Nothing here appeals to me that I don't already own via Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.

Rockox said:Is the Dead Island stuff worth it?Not really. The horde mode was a good idea, but I thought it was kind of boring. You do get some nice items if you can stay in there for awhile but you'll need a team to do it. I recommend boosting it for a completion and that's really about it.

I have always wanted Left 4 Dead 1&2 and although that is a good price for games on demand i am limited to space on my HDD and prefer to get a disk when i can other wise i probably would of got it.

So many deals just now, its lovely to see.

If you don't have Blitz now, get it for 600.

Especially if you have RB3.
How much for the whole kitten kaboodle?

The only remotely interesting thing is the Dead Island DLC... and that's mostly because I actually own it and may want to try for those achievements someday.

It's a good game, but I haven't played it in the longest time...
