    NHL Arcade is worth it for the menu sound effects alone.

    Looks like I'm going to pass on everything that is offered until The Sacrifice DLC for L4D gets a price cut.
    Why must people cry when certain rules aren't followed in the Random Chat forums?

    I've never been a big fan of sports games and I was debating whether or not to buy NBA Jam when it first came out on a disk, but the fact that the On Fire Ed. is on sale and the servers won't be shut down in a week's time make this very tempting. I mean seriously... who didn't play NBA Jam and start throwing up 3s at will with Miller or Payton, or throw the ball down low and have Shaq, Robinson or Hakeem throw down on someone?

    Good luck with that. Valve is notorious for never putting anything they make on sale unless you buy it on Steam.

    Not a fan of EA, but a fan of XBLA. Are any of these worth it?
    I am what I am, and that's all that I am, an XBLA completion addict.

    Just tried to grab the 3 month w/ free 800 points...and it is now saying sold out. Also not available to even add to the cart any longer (for in-store or shipping).

    I did buy the 12 month for $40 though. When I go to pick it up today I am going to see if they have the 3 month deal in store, and will get at least a year's worth if they do.

    I can't tell if this is serious or sarcastic. On one hand it kinda makes sense, but what if the game gets delisted?

    Servers still stay up on delisted games. I have several delisted games that can still be played online

    Nice! Exactly why I belong to this site. Thanks for the heads up!

    Also NFL arcade vs. blitz- is one better or both good?
    Don't let difficult achievements prevent you from enjoying great games.

    That's not entirely true...ask anyone needing the online scrabble achv! All of these games have the obligatory EA statement about servers closing, so while only a few arcade games have had servers closed to date, it's not impossible. Knock out the online early!!

    ...also, xbla games get delisted (gone forever), which retail games do not...so there is a balance, of sorts. You can always find a retail disc, but online might not work, and you can't get xbla titles forever, but even delisted games still have servers running! (Yaris, TMNT, etc)
    Look at me so I can finish!

    Scrabble is the only one I can think of. Good call. Most arcade games are usually safe. Scrabble was strange because of how the whole FGN was structured

    NFL blitz achievements are stupidly annoying. Get arcade.
    Oh Republicans! You lost! Get over it! Wake up! You are a dying breed! 4 MORE YEARS!

    Damn straight! - I thought this was a hoax, EA SPORTS GAMES ON SALE! - Why don't you go blow a goat!!
    May you unlock as many achievements as you want, but never want as long as you unlock achievements

    I feel like I've definitely seen retail games get delisted, in a manner of speaking. I mean obviously they still exist, but the gallery and extras get taken down. For instance I've heard there's Turok DLC, but you can't find the game if you search for it. I don't know if this has ever happened with DLC that has achievements. Probably happens mostly with games where the only "extras" are old trailers no one would watch anymore.
