    These games was on sale a few months ago on XBLA at a much lower price.
    Its just repeating sales, with nothing new.

    I bought Tekken Tag 2 cheap on XBLA on previous sale, and now it costs over twice as much on sale as last time. I'm glad i got it the first time then.

    Out of all the kart games going around on the 360 it's only bettered by the Sonic racing games, but be ware because the game seems hard to begin with and the gameplay takes a bit to get used to, but once you do the fun kicks in, oh and there's a bit of a grind to get the last achievement.

    All trash. Oh well. :/

    Still can't fathom why people would buy a terrible game, that not fun nor are they interested in, simply for some 'easy' Gamerscore. It's not something to really be proud of if it took little skill or effort.

    Don't know what you're on about...

    All of these are first time discounts afaik by looking at previous articles. (With the exception of Underworld.)
    How much for the whole kitten kaboodle?

    Apparently he thinks that because one or two games have been cheaper, that makes the whole sale full of expensive repeats.

    Even though it's full of first time sales.

    Odd.

    It's because we're all on crack and can't help ourselves.

    Actually, I kinda understand your sentiment and I'm actually transitioning into where I'm more about quality than quantity. At any rate, to each their own, my friend. I could care less what other people do because frankly, I'm too busy enjoying my gaming than worrying about what everyone else boots up.

    At the end of the day, this site is for various reasons, much like what the article stated in terms of statistics. You sound like TA ratio is what you're after while mine is completion percentage. Obviously, the gamers who play these "trash" games are for GS. Kudos to all.

    Anyone that is curious about Tomb Raider: Underworld should know that it really is a great game. It has a pretty good story to it and there are quite a few different environments to explore. The controls are very manageable and the graphics are up to par with games that came out around its release time.

    Oh and of course there is Lara!

    I would say it's good but I'm a longtime fan of the Tomb Raider games so the only one I would really call a bad one is Angel Of Darkness.

    I think the general consensus is that the first 3 or 4 were very good and the ones since (which includes Underworld) aren't so good with the exception of this year's release.

    At the end of the day though you can probably pick it up cheaper on disc.
    Hodor!

    Is there ever something that you DO pick up? From all your 4000+ comments it's always "meh, nothing for me" or in that way. And about your motto / bio... Gears of War legend? Just cause you boosted Gears 1 Seriously AND Gears 2 Seriously + level 100 AND Gears 3 Seriosuly + level 100 re-up twice AND everything MP boosted from Gears Judgement makes you a huge booster, with probably too much time on your hands. NOT a Gears legend / god or whatever,

    It's terrible. It's the worst of all the kart games by a loooooong way.

    Had to get Storm at that price. Good kid-friendly game.

    Bought Battlestations Pacific, since I got the DLC when it was discounted a while back. Have Midway on disc. Decent games, though not really easy completions.

    TR: Underworld is decent but has pricey DLC and the same crappy camera angles that have plagued the games in recent years.
