    Why are the Lego games never on sale for the Xbox 360. I will never understand this.

    Anyone else realized how odd of a name Devil May Cry is? Like, what does that mean?

    All pretty good games.

    Bleh. With how much they put the Bioshocks on sale you'd think they could humor us with some sales on the DLC (especially for Bioshock 2).

    I checked storeparser and they seem to go on sale every 8-12 months, with the last time being the beginning of this past October. So based on their past sales trends I'd say they're due to go on sale pretty soon.

    I'll see your Bioshock DLCs and raise you one Dragon Age II. At least you can get the DLCs in the remastered Bioshock Collection, but EA hasn't given us any choice but to pay $36 for DA2's DLCs since October 2015. WTF?!

    Like WT-everlovin'-F?

    *ahem*

    Seriously, I'm just being sarcastic. wink The total cost of the 360 Bioshock DLCs is ridiculously exorbitant when you consider how often you can snag the Bioshock Collection for $20. That's as bad as having to pay $36 for the DLCs to a previous-gen game what's sequel has a complete, current-gen edition that sells for less than $15 at least once a month. With digital distribution, publishers don't care whether they sell the DLCs, just so long as everyone who buys them pays full price out of desperation because they literally have no other means to acquire the content.

    To paraphrase Jim Sterling, they'd rather have no money if they can't have all the money in the world.

    EDIT - I wrote this before I knew that DA:Inquisition's GOTY edition was on sale this week for $10. This shit's so thick you can't even whip it into a parody of itself.

    They have been on sale a number of times. I own them all digitally, and only one cost more than $4.99 (The last Star Wars was either 7.49 or 9.99)

    Not only is it the name of Dante's 'shop' but I remember something about Dante has a look in his eye so intense, even the devil may cry.
    Shut your crap, York.

    It's also a pun on the expression "devil may care."

    I would gladly pay the X1 sale prices for the 360 versions of LEGO Avengers and TFA with DLC!!!

    They never updated the servers for 2, for a DLC playlist. So I guess they figured no one will ever get to play the DLC maps normally anyway.

    Still one of the worst DLCs I ever paid money for, just for the fact it was nigh impossible to play the new maps. As every single person in the lobby has to have the DLC, or the maps will never show up.

    Of course I was able to boost it thanks to sessions here on TA, but that's besides the point. I spent hours before that just trying to find the maps playing normally. Course that was years back, I'd have to assume the game is totally dead online now.

    The DLC must have been on sale at one point, otherwise I wouldn't have bought it.

    Why do people think they have the right to bitch about what they put on sale? I will never understand this.

    It's a good sale compared to what is appearing recently.

    ^ laugh
    Lego probably sells more than average for the publisher, so why put it on sale...

    Platinum Games always makes quality action games. I almost had a heart attack when I beat the last tactical challenge in that game. Can't recommend Vanquish enough.

    I don't know when you saw these deals, because I watch lego games closely and I haven't seen any of the more recent ones for those kind of prices.
