    Well a lot of this stuff I already have. Might look in to Rock of Ages though.... Any opinions on it?

    Does anyone know how good final exam, faery legends of Avalon, and realms of war are?
    I bought the R.A.W game last winter or spring to play with my nephew. For the price it didn't seem like a bad game but the co-op was a massive disappointment :( The 2nd player's levels, items, etc don't get saved so you have to reset the skills each time and collect items to use all over again unless you can remember to give them to the other player before you hit the save point before quitting and not knowing where those points are meant having to gain all those items all over again next time :(

    That game was part of last week's sale. Sounds like it hasn't changed back to normal price yet.

    I thought Final Exam was pretty decent. My roommate and I played through it a few years back and we generally had a good time. As for achievements, there are a few tough ones I doubt I will ever get. You'd need to be pretty good at the game, plus have at least one good co-op partner, I'd say.

    I swear, it's like Microsoft thinks unsold copies of Farming Simulator are taking up physical space in a warehouse somewhere... they know it's all virtual, right? Like, they understand that they don't need to put it on sale over and over in order to free up room for something else?

    Faery is a fun, though very short and not particularly challenging, RPG. For the price here, it's fantastic (but don't get your hopes up too high -- you do get what you pay for). Even if you hate it, you can 100% it in a single day.

    When I click the TA link to the Xbox site, Rock of Ages is still showing its full price :/ That's UK and US versions.

    I can only echo what others have said about Faery and RAW. Faery is a better old-school rpg than you'd expect and combines it with a bit of treasure hunting (not unlike Child of Light). It's over too soon, though, and feels like more could have been done to have more content in each of the areas you visit.

    RAW is an okay game for a single playthrough, but really starts to overstay its welcome soon after starting the second playthrough when you realize there is hardly any difference at all. Mind-numbing gameplay that goes on for a little too long, although you could also argue that the developers did a nice job making a surprisingly lengthy game that does have a proper story to tell.

    Final Exam is, in my opinion, an absolute masterpiece. Get it for this price. A weird package that combines side-scrolling brawling with searching around and a little bit of puzzling. 4 different characters to play as with lots of different skills to use, a wonderful risk vs reward score mechanic and a lot of quirky mission ideas to spice up the gameplay even more. Final Exam never gets the attention it deserves. Even more fun to play co-op, although it's too bad that you're not getting any story segments in multiplayer; that's only for single player.
