    moron companies who delist without notification. even a few hundred sales because of an announcement would be good. too bad.
    Indeed. Who does it hurt to give people warning?

    Had some of the games on my watchlist for quite some time. Waiting for a discount. Deathspank & ARES were $15 each. With no sale during the last years.

    Maybe if they would add a couple of different games in the weekly sale rotation every now and then games like this would sell better. But it's always the same games over and over again.
    Agreed. I don't mind having weeks where I don't have anything to spend money on laugh, but it'd be nice to see more of a mix in the sale lineups.

    Anywho, doubt I would have touched most of them anyway since they weren't BC. From a quick look Runner was the only one, and I bought that, so no skin off my nose.

    Doesn't suprise me when they delist games I never heard of like DeathSpank
    You mean the third game in the DeathSpank franchise that got a lot of buzz and attention from the game press when it came out.

    Pretty sure if you haven't heard of it, you simply weren't around at the time. DeathSpank is one of the better selling XBLA games (and series).

    I guess it was during the time I wasn't big into watching YouTube or surfing the web like I do now so maybe I was around but never ACTUALLY heard the hyp train come rolling into my room

    Chime and Runner 2 were both decent games. Still play Chime occasionally even now.

    Might have to grab the undergarden DLC too...

    Are the Deathspank games self-contained enough so that just playing the first two doesn't leave one with cliffhangers?

    Edit - Also, is there game importing in the series? Because I notice that Steam still has The Baconing available.

    The Ludwig pack must be a mistake. Currently, on my 360 it says you can only get 200 gs total and its been this way for a while now.

    I believe on the Xbox 360 console, a list did not update with DLC achievement if you didn't own the DLC. That means nothing in the actual scheme of things. The DLC achievements obviously exist and I just went to the product page and it is available for purchase.

    Noooooooooo! I was waiting for a Deathspank 3 sale that never came. Now they wipe out the game altogether. Lame!

    Why the hell did I never see any notice of deathspank 3 getting delisted. I held off for a sale that never appeared and now its gone. Plain stupid. They were actually fun. So much for completing the deathspank series now.

    What a shame for Chime, always liked that game. It was pleasant and enjoyable. Recently played it again after so long for a video on YouTube and it got me hooked on it all over again.

    Really deathspank wish there was some type of warning thats the only game I actually wanted out of all them so long for completing the trilogy

    Sure wish Microsoft had a standard 30 day notice etc. For delistings. They would get a spike in sales at the end if they would just notify us. Some of these ok games I wait to go on sale. Knowing it's now or never, I probably would have bought a few of these.
