    Guess it's time to finish this game off. I usually buy one or two every time they are on sale, Connect 4x4 and Sorry! Sliders are gonna blow...

    I don't own any of these yet....would love to start the game but I don't want to end up shelling out that much money to complete the game. The only games I'm really interested in are Scrabble and Yahtzee.

    Last time I checked you need to loan/buy a NTSC-US console.

    Don't worry if these deals don't interest you, next weeks deals are some Dance Central songs.
    LOL, you win the thread!
    If only this was a joke...but it's true so nothing for me until 10th January...
    EA has decided to do a sale on some of their stuff next week as well, so there's the possibility some good stuff shows up on sale next week even though dancing isn't your thing.

    Great games for gamerscore!

    Edit: I don't play games only for gamerscore, I keep it 50/50. I've yet to start Avatar.

    These games suck for me personally, but having a family it makes sense for the kids to play, they choose connect 4, Sorry Sliders and Jenga and are well happy and the plus side no game parts to loose :-)

    Yeah but when you reduce yourself to only playing games for the GS & not the fun factor as well, that's when it's gone too far.

    This isn't directed at anyone specific, but all the people saying that they will "hold on to their MS points", you do realize that as long as they are on your account and you bought them, MS doesn't care right? As far as they are concered they have your money already. That is why I never put points on my account unless I see something I like. But ya, these deals have been AWFUL.

    What a deal, $45 instead of $90. Let me know when the whole thing is like ten bucks.
