    On the fence about Daytona. Always said I'd grab it when it's half price but now it is I'm not sure...LOL.
    Joe Danger is pretty cool too but can't really see myself sitting down to put the time and effort into it :(
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    i will buy Joe Danger on sunday, when the new rewards deal is revealed.
    Bah...forgot what time of the month it was. Last month I renewed my family plan on the 28th...then March 1st was announced double reward msp for renewing during March. Lost 400pts because I didn't wait, and now I went and made my marketpace purchases this morning...if it's a reward for buying add-ons or xbla I am going to be pissed!
    Killer Punks...all that needs to be said.

    Does any of the Forza DLC add achievements? Looking at the page I would assume no....
    The only Forza DLC with achvs is the upcoming (and not included in season pass) Porsche Pack, which adds the Porsche cars that EA wouldn't give up the license for.

    None of the season pass dlc packs came with achvs, and none were "full" of good cars...each pack had a mix of good/ bad/ nostalgia cars, so I simply "bought" the free car from each pack and dropped some msp on a "must-have" here and there.
    Killer Punks...all that needs to be said.

    Here's what I heard are in the Games On Demand 'Sale', not that impressive really. If you want any of these then I'd advise you to get down to your nearest (not closed) GAME and scouring the preowned section.

    Fable III
    Was: 2400 MP > Now: 1600 MP (£13.33)

    Alan Wake
    Was: 2400 MP > Now: 1973 MP (£16.49)


    Halo Wars
    Was: 2400 MP > Now: 1600 MP (£13.33)

    Halo: Reach
    Was: 3200 MP > Now: 1973 MP (£16.66)

    Mass Effect
    Was: 1600 MP > Now: 1200 MP (£11.24)

    In the US, Gears of War and Crackdown 2 are added to the line-up

    Joe Danger & Daytona for me this week, yay for a good Deal Of the Week!
    How on earth could Alan Wake at £16 possibly be classed as a deal? I paid £8 over a year ago for it brand new still sealed. This is precisely why the GoD service for the 360 will never be a success. I assume it comes with The Writer DLC.
    Dude, none of those are a good deal. lol All can be found brand new for cheaper. Like you, I don't see how GoD could be a success. I also don't see why anyone would buy this shit to begin with, but to each their own I guess.facepalm
    toast

    Here are 10 Fable III's that are cheaper than this "deal":
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fable-3-Xbox-2010-NTSC-/280798827990...

    If you want digital Alan Wake, here's several cheaper ones:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alan-Wake-Xbox-360-2010-Full-Game-Do...

    Plenty of disc Alan Wakes for around the "deal" price on there as well.

    Plenty of digital Halo Reachs here for cheaper:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Halo-Reach-Xbox-360-2010-Full-Game-D...


    Keep in mind that these were just found on eBay and were Buy It Now prices, so you could potentially get them cheaper at Auction. These searches took me all of about a minute to find, so there's no doubt that there are probably comparable deals out there elsewhere.
    And like I always say, if you find a disc copy for a few dollars more than these "deals", keep in mind the potential to trade it or resell it once you're done with it, thereby getting it for "cheaper".clap

    I'm not going to do this for everything posted on here, but it's just to illustrate that you can find better deals with a half-assed search attempt.toast

    Daytona USA:

    200G can be done in less than 1 hour, and you dont require much skill to even get it 100% as you can use "very easy" on most of them, and the rest is also "easy". ;)

    Its like Afterburner Climax which also was a easy 200G.

    Definitely getting Daytona for the easy completion. Might check out Sega Rally as well.

    Downloaded, completed and deleted Daytona USA within 35mins last night. Handling is aweful, the arcade version had a stearing wheel and it doesn't translate to pad very well.
    100 achievements on old games for 1% increase.... soon be 90% >_<

    I'd just like to take this opportunity to once again say "Fuck you EA".

    Thank you for your attention.

    Daytona USA will be the easiest 200 points you will ever get. I think I did it in 45 minutes.

    Tried the Joe Danger demo but it just seemed like a poor Trials HD. Does it get better?
