    Charlie Murder is a great XBLA title from Ska Studios. They have a patch submitted that is awaiting certification tat will fix the unobtainable. You can even boost XP with a higher level player to make the game easier/faster to complete and duplicate relics. It's a fun side scrolling beat 'em up with local and online co-op (although no drop in/out).

    Don't let the (currently) unobtainable achievement steer you away from this gem at this price. As for Fire Pro Wrestling, that has no plans of a patch, so permanent unobtainable.
    I am what I am, and that's all that I am, an XBLA completion addict.

    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...
    Which is interesting since my experience was the exact opposite. When I played the game and then read the reviews I was shocked at how kind most of them were to it. Terrible story, bland characters, annoying enemies, unskippable cutscenes... When I saw most of them thought it was average I was honestly surprised that it even rated that high.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

    I’m about half way through Remember Me, and it’s pretty good so far. It has some cool and unique elements to it IMO. Definitely worth a play for the price the deal is offering it.

    I have a disc copy of Alan Wake that I cannot seem to find. I might just have to pick up the Games on Demand version if I don’t find it here pretty quick. laugh

    It's one of the best games I have ever played as far as the story goes. I would pay full price for it now if I could have that same fist time experience again.

    Maybe I could have the memory removed. lol
    Just rewind and remix it, so you don't know you played it! wink

    ANYWAY, I agree with Snake Eyes and HingedMonster...pick this game up - You'll enjoy it!!! Now, learn those pressan fight moves!!

    Does anyone know anything about the halo wars DLC. I recently picked up a physical copy. Is there a change for the DLC to go on sale anytime soon too?

    DlC, at this point, is 4x the base game price..

    Wow, this is an old thread - great to be reminded of what the biggest sale ever looked like back in 2014. That is now the standard size of the weekly sales.

    If you wanted the add-ons, you should have paid a bit more and got the Classics version instead, as they are included. But since the add-ons cost $20, and you only paid a quarter of that ($5) for the game, then all up you would be paying $25 for the "Classics" version, so it hasn't really cost you any more.

    Your last best hope for something that old going on sale would be a Halo Wars 2 promo sale. The last time it was on sale was in 2011 - http://xbldb.com/offers/000-890
