    Would've gotten Rio if the Euro-Dollar conversion rate wasn't so bad
    9.89 euro = $13.64 so it is cheaper for you already not to mention, the price in $ isn't what we're actually charged when purchasing content on xbl , idk if it varies by states or title but I get charged 9% +(put the plus because one game I dl was 9.99 but with taxes was 13.64) in taxes

    Remember Me is one of my favourite games from this console generation. The story is really where it's at and you can customize your combos so don't believe people if they tell you the combat gets stale.

    Also, Alan Wake is definitely worth the price! Don't forget the DLC!

    At "67% off" - the Gears of War games are still substantially more expensive than they are second hand in CEX.

    I really do wonder if MS/Sony will ever deploy a pricing model that benefits developers and consumers alike.

    Looking into Castle Crashers....
    I love Castle Crashers. One of my very first Arcade purchases. It is an absolute blast to play with friends.

    Considering the Gears of War 3 pass, even though I won't be attempting Seriously 3.0/some of the long-ass multiplayer achievements to actually fully complete the game annoyingly. Rather complete and enjoy multiple other games then being stuck on one for months.

    And maybe I'm being a tight-wad but I'll wait till Remember Me goes just a tad cheaper.

    It's interesting seeing so many people in this thread who actually recommend Remember Me. I don't think I've seen a completely terrible game get defended this much since Risen 2... maybe Gothic 2. Anyone thinking of buying it might want to read some reviews for it, I normally do a few professional ones and then a few user reviews, since the general consensus seems to be that its somewhere between fairly decent with a few interesting ideas all the way to being a mish-mash of half-baked ideas that all individually suck and come together to create a real PoS.

    That said this is a pretty damn good sale even if there's nothing here for me beyond Castlestorm. Actually, how is Battleblock Theater? There's no reviews for it on the site.
    On the contrary, when I played Remember Me and then read the reviews, I was genuinely shocked. In a genre filled with over-rated games, it's one of the better action-adventures on offer. It looks great, it handles great, it has a great story, a great world, great sequences...

    Too many unobtainable achievements this week, that or good prices until you factor in the DLC (why do I have to get it all?)...still a couple to interest me though, which is much better than nothing!

    Judgment is not too bad as long as you know thats its not an important story or really a step forward for the series. Gears of War 3 is a top top game!
