    I think I'll get Ilomilo this time. Don't buy Gyromancer, it's a bad game with hard achievements. There's no reason to pick it up unless you hate yourself.

    Couldn't go past Bejeweled LIVE (having spent the last few days actually toiling away at Bejeweled 2), and I have to say it is so far well worth the 200msp. A lot faster paced than 2, and even being in the Party Live mode is entertaining even if really doesn't directly affect the way you play. Just fun watching how other people are going at the same time, even if you have absolutely no idea who they are haha.

    Also picked up ilomilo (and the DLC that apparently exists) having heard only good things about it. Haven't played it just yet... in fact I haven't seen any gameplay at all. It'll be amusing going into it completely oblivious.

    Been waiting for my chance to snag portal, though I remember getting migraines while playing the demo...ohwell, guess I'll live through it long enough to complete it.

    Picked up ilomilo last time it went on sale. And picked up Gyromancer when it first came out. Now if they were to put the DLC for Gyromancer on sale, i'd pick that up and play it again.

    I definitely recommend Portal. I've also been meaning to start Ilomilo. I enjoyed the demo and picked it up last time it was on sale.

    Portal's an excellent game, although I already own it as part of the Orange Box. I also enjoyed Gyromancer, although I appreciate it is a bit grindy for some - I keep meaning to pick up the DLC, but I never seem to have an odd 240 msp with nothing else to spend it on.

    Ilomilo was the one thing tempting me for this week, but after playing the demo, I guess it's a bit young for me.

    D&D Daggerdale on sale next week - I nearly picked that up when it came out, but the bugs put me off - has it been patched now?

    Really pleased I own Portal, saved me spending my money on Portal 2 which no doubt is equally shit as the first. Avoid, so many better games out there.

    Wow, as much as I'm fine with you thinking it's bad... I don't think I've ever seen someone that actually thought it was so bad to call it shit lol. Yes I would say even though Portal 2 is a hundred times better than the first, if you didn't like the first you probably won't like the second, you'd probably just hate it less.

    Today is one of the few days that I wish I hadn't already purchased & 100% both Ilomilo & Portal, both 2 of the best games available on Live Arcade. Achievements are quite clever & fun as well!

    I loved Ilomilo, I highly suggest picking it up at the discounted price (As well as the DLC).

    As for Portal, I would actually suggest passing on the XBLA version if you can manage to get a copy of the Orange Box (Often used for $15). Not only does it have the goodness of Portal, but the amazingness of Half Life 2, and a halfway decent version of Team Fortress 2.

    You know people miss deals for various reasons. So even though you may have bought them during a sale maybe someone else wants it and had missed it the last time it was on sale or maybe they didn't have gold. You know that the world is Berra111-centric!
