    Fucking sales... just bought 6000 for this sale and in 5 minutes, spent 5760 of it.
    Just like that?! It all makes sense now...

    - well, it...did before actually. wink
    I've been waiting for each of them that I bought to go on sale (minus Ms Splosion Man, forgot I had even wanted that one). I didn't exactly expect it to happen at once, and I hate myself for it facepalm. Had these been 1, maybe 2 at a time I would get some equal time with each of them. Now... who knows how long till I get to anything I bought besides Stacking and possible Nightwing (wasn't on sale, but I bought it)

    Usually the most I'll spend at once is 2-3000MSP, and that's only if I'm buying more expensive XBLA games, or a shitload of music for Rock Band. But I can't pass up a great deal on multiple things I wanted... I'm a victim damnitangry

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood DLC! YESSSS. I was really hoping it would go on sale around this time.

    DeathSpank: The Baconing! I just finished Thongs of Virtue. This is awesome. Every DeathSpank game has been well worth the 600msp in humor and hack-n-slash action.

    Gonna check out quite a few demos, too. And like someone posted earlier, check out the Major's Minute video on the dashboard (Inside XBox section). He details a good portion of the Friday and Monday sales.

    Job & A Social Life, achievements most gamers refuse to earn...therefore, their ratios are high.

    I want a sale on The Sacrifice for the original Left 4 Dead since it was shitty to charge twice for this in the first place.

    these deals could have been so much better i wish theyd reduced Alien Breed episode 3 i mean they did the first 2 before. maybe reduce some of these dang arcade games that are more worth purchasing. =\

    Nabbed the Marvel tables, but that's about it.
    Though I should probably be buying SMB and Stacking, I'm not 100% sure.

    There is no need to buy the Elder Scrolls DLC just pick up a used copy of the GOTY edition from gamestop and then download it to your hard drive and then return it for your money back. You will get all the DLC for free.

    Damn, already had Super Meat Boy, Stacking, Fancy Pants Adventure and AC: Brotherhood DLC i've just been waiting on Elder Scrolls: Oblivion Shivering Isles DLC to get a decent discount (at least 800) for me to pick it up, but again no luck.

    Sales always happen just after you decide to buy something full price...

    I already own Stacking, the Marvel tables, and Outrun. I'll probably pick up the Baconing, the Da Vinci Disappearance, and the other Pinball tables once I can get back to my Xbox again.

    Yeah, I was busting for that one, too. It'll likely be 320msp ($4 U.S.), with the actual percentage rounded to sound better. I remember last year they put a firesale on Splosion Man for 160msp... I was balking at MvC2 before (at $15), since I have the Dreamcast release. But for $4, hell yeah I'll play it up again on the mega-console that is the 360.

    Outrun Online Arcade is suppose to be taken off the XBLA in a month... nice job there.

    I do have a question about that though. If I get all the online achievements, do I need to complete the game before they delist it; do I have to have an internet connection to play?

    The reason I ask is becasue people say it is being taken off the delisted from the xbox and the game also suggests that is might require LIVE in order to play.

    Also, by delisting, are they delisting just the game, or taken away all online activity, or taking away the full game?

    Just some dumb questions, but I would like them to be answered smile.

    I'd consider a few of these games if I didn't already own them. Still, very cool that they're having such a sale!

    Super Meat Boy and the Pinball Fx 2 content are a steal at this price. Buy them.

    Nothing I want that I haven't already got in the sale though.

    Most tempted by The Baconing and the AC Brotherhood DLC. I'll probably pick up W40K Kill Team and Beyond Good and Evil in the one day sales too. That should keep me busy for a while.

    Have they patched Daggerdale yet?
