    I bought tales from space on Xbox.com earlier but can't find it on the dash to download now that I'm home? It's not in the store...

    Also sad that Costume Quest isn't on sale. Got the second last time it was on sale, I found it quite enjoyable. People seem to say the first is better though.
    I think they're about the same. The first one is standard fare with monsters invading to steal candy. The second has an unusual twist. The villain is a dentist who has a candy phobia and creates a future where Halloween and candy are outlawed. So, although the game play is quite similar--and many may not like the repetition--the theme is original.

Whenever I buy anything online it automatically puts it in the Downloads queue on the guide and then I just have to activate it (as opposed to going to the store and finding it then downloading it from there).

It's a cycle laughAlice is very rarely on sale. Imo its worth getting if you have 5 dollars to spare.

    I cannot recommend Dead Space enough. At that price they're nearly GIVING it away. If anyone's on the fence about it, now is the time to give it a go! It's one of my favorite 360 games of all time. Dead Island and State of Decay are also worth looking into, both are at excellent prices this week!

    I bought Alice: Madness Returns last year when it went on sale (for the same price as it is now) around Halloween. I don't think it has been on sale since then. I'd recommend the game to anyone that enjoys 3D platformers. The game is by no means a perfect game--there are some repetitive things, some parts of the game just don't fit (minigames thrown into the actual gameplay to push the story along that just end up feeling awkward and out of place), some of the levels feel like they are WAYYYYYY too long, and to top it off there are a bunch of collectibles to nab to get the full completion.

    All that said, it's a good game, especially at that price!! An interesting twist on a well-known fairytale. It's dark, the story is original, and it's fun. Completion-wise, I didn't find it too hard, if you are willing to shell out a few bucks you can get a DLC costume/weapons pack which buffs all weapons and stats--hard mode is a breeze if you have the DLC!

    Only thing I plan on getting is Costume Quest 2,

    For those who don't have Dead Space, you need to get it right now! That game was the first game I ever played that combined "action" and "horror" and after playing it I fell in love with the series. For $3.75 it's a steal! ... Looks like it's Titianfall and maybe one other game. Any recommendations?

    Now I've bought both Dead Space and Tales from Space based on recommendations in this thread. The price was definitely a factor as well, though... I'm allergic to discounts of less than 50%.

    So add me to the (growing) list of those convinced to buy more than they intended. laugh

    Someone can confirm me that with a code of 14 days trial for gold I can have the discount related to deal with gold?

It was never in my download queue (as far as I was aware) so I got confused but it must have downloaded so quickly that I didn't even manage to catch it in there. It was right there in my games all along beginning with M
