    All of the Kinect Sport Gems are $2,99 $1,99!! I don't know if it's meant to be a deal or permanent discount. Might be interesting for those (like myself) that need games that count towards the Kinect PlayFit App.
    Kinect Sport Gems
    - 10 Frame Bowling $2.99 $1.99
    - 3 Point Contest $2.99 $1.99
    - Boxing Fight $2.99 $1.99
    - Darts vs Zombies $2.99 $1.99
    - Field Goal Contest $2.99 $1.99
    - Penalty Saver $2.99 $1.99
    - Ping Pong $2.99 $1.99
    - Prize Driver $2.99 $1.99
    - Reaction Rally $2.99 $1.99
    - Ski Race $2.99 $1.99

    My guess for an out of band discount of 33% or less is a permanent price drop. But since they dropped in price on 28th February I would pick them up in the next couple of days if you want them.

    One of the Spelunky DLCs is also on sale - Arenas $1.99 $0.99 (no achievements)

    I'd avoid 'I Am Alive' IIWU, it blows!
    Let me find peace in my own heart and save me from my enemies.

    Stay away from "I am Alive." It's just a horrible game.

    I'm not up to speed on internet slang. What does "IIWU" mean? I know "IWU" means, "I want you," which is something I'm sure you're not trying to say. wink

    Wait - that wink could be misleading. I'm not trying to...never mind. laugh

    And, I hold your opinions in high regard and saddened that "I Am Alive" isn't a good game. What things specifically make it a bad game?

    I would definitely pick up all of these Kinect Sports Gem games if they would total out to $10 or less. I can't bring myself to pay that much for a bunch of mini-games, especially since I can play them on the retail version of Season Two.

    My two cents:

    Mirror of Fate -- Combines Lords of Shadow combat with Metroidvania exploration and waters down both in the process. Definite purchase for fans of the series, newcomers might want to demo first. Multiple playthroughs and a boss rush for achievements.

    Call of Jaurez -- I'm only about halfway through. Switched to other games because I found it boring and, to me, that's the worst thing I can say about a game unless it's totally broken. Never played any other CoJ games so I can't speak for fans of the series. Seems to be a substantial game for that price, but might not be worth your time (a more valuable commodity for me). Again, multiple playthroughs and "boss rush" required for cheeve hunters.

    What a bunch of crap. Hopefully next week brings something noteworthy.
    How is it a bunch of crap? really? Because you have played most of them or are you just being a hater?
    I'll second his bunch of crap. Most of these games were offered in the ultimate sale or the last couple of sales and COD ghosts has been on sale forever now. Wasn't it last weeks Deal of the week?

    33% off brings down to $39.99 while Meijer's has it on disc, on sale, for $29.99? not much of a sale if you ask me.....

    Wonder why that one Spelunky DLC is randomly on sale, was hoping it meant the game was gonna be on sale. Swear these sales are teasing I missed the Countdown sale for it.
  • Posted on 04 March 14 at 22:36Permalink
    CoJ Gunslinger is a must buy. I bought it over X-mas and had a blast.
    Picked up Castlevania. Wasn't too keen on paying £10 for it but for a fiver it's worth it.

    If this all deal of the week stuff and as such gold exclusive why doesn't the title mention it. Wouldn't have even bothered opening the article if id known it would be stuff I couldnt buy anyway

    Call of Duty, playing the "let's get all the remaining sales we can before Titanfall swoops in and shows the world how to make a real next-gen FPS" card.
    Gamers have only two hobbies: playing games, and complaining about those games.

    Jeez, what's the exchange on the AU$, that's a high price for those games, no?

    And as per other posters here regarding I am Alive, for 75% off I think that is a solid purchase, I enjoyed that game. Easy completion.
