    At least that's one dotw they can't repeat now . F.G.N .
    Because it's not a DotW roll
    He means they can't make it dotw because it's reduced permanantly. I love it when smartarses fail. Duh.
    Not true. Microsoft has put games on the DotW list that have already received a permanent discount in the pass, so Family Game Night could easily still pop up as a future Deal of the Week.
    Yeh true, but I was quoting someone else only to make a point ;)

    Microsoft should have discounted the Family Game Night games last month. If I saw that Scrabble was only 400 points last month, I would have definitely bought it just to get the one multiplayer achievement.
    ^This.

    If they just did this a week before the servers went down, I would have ended up buying the whole set. But now that I know that there is an discontinued achievement, I probably wont even touch any of them. I'm sure they will still make their money off of this discount for others, but I'm sure a lot of the achievement hunters will stay away due to our sick addiction for completions.
    Completionists unite!!
    Job & A Social Life, achievements most gamers refuse to earn...therefore, their ratios are high.

    They should've cut the prices on these a long time ago. Especially before they that scrabble achievement impossible to get because of servers.

    To all those complaining about the unobtainable achievement. You had over three years to purchase and complete the achievement prior to the server being shut down. We are talking about a game that was discounted so many times on DotW and other sales that it was a joke. And we are talking about an achievement that most people in the civilized world cannot even get because that particular part of the game is unavailable thanks to international copyright laws.

    As much as I hate servers being shut off, this one is hard to have sympathy for.

    You're making an assumption that everyone buys a game at release. Not the case at all.

    Server closure = sale the following week. No real surprise but it is still a kick to the junk. Might wait on Toy Soldiers until the add-ons go on sale too.

    As has been said a few times (but not nearly as many times as the false complaints), FGN actually was discounted before the servers went down.

    Will always recommend ITSP, that game is brilliant epecially with the price drop. The DLC is very challenging requring me to host 4 x TA gaming sessions to actually succeed in 100% the game. Well worth the price tag

    I wouldn't mind the add ons for Toy soldiers if they reduced them
    Same here. I bought TS a while back during a sale for 800 msp and there is a lot of gameplay in it - it's always left me wanting more.

    I've been holding off on buying Toy Soldiers. Might get it now.
    I game for achievements. You may or may not. Can we get back on topic?

    everyone does realize the reason family game night is reduced in price is cause servers are going down.
    It's all the small things,that add up to the truely great things.
