Deal of the Week: January 10th, 2012

    Orcs must die is so good I would recommend it to anyone. I already have tower defence so it's just south park for me then. I wish the DLC was on sale for these titles too Tower defence has quite a lot for an arcade title

    Uh, Orcs. Totally getting that, I like killing Orcs. And Tower Defense.
    Nice pencil. Blue pencil. I like blue pencil. It's so blue.

    I still say Defense Grid is by far the best tower defense game on Xbox Live.

    Will have to check out Orcs and replay Dungeon Defenders to see if I like it enough for that price.

    Indeed, so rather than lagging behind other sites why not give the responsibility for such articles to someone who is up when the information first arises?

    My friends are obsessed with Dungeon Defenders. Might have to nab it.
    Used to play Halo 3 like a Pro. Grew up, now I'm playing other games! #latetotheparty

    Be advised that Defense grid is good but still extremely buggy

    Or you could just search for yourself and let this thread be...since xbldb.com catches most of them early and you already have the info then...does it really matter when this article goes online here?

    The base game worked fine for me, but the "You Monster" DLC seems to be really glitchy.
  • Posted on 10 January 12 at 20:01
    Picking up Dungeon Defenders as soon as I get home! That price is a steal.
    Does this smell like chloroform to you?
  • Posted on 10 January 12 at 20:12
    Yes!! I have finally waited for a better DotW! Already have Defense Grid, so I'm up with Orcs Must Die, Dungeon Defenders (!), and of course, South Park. :D

    Because I can just check the dash. I'm sill making the point that this information should go up earlier than it does, the site depends on ad revenue to some degree so making sure you get your site hits as high as you can (ie getting time sensitive information out ASAP) helps.

    I applied previously and when they asked if there was anyhing I'd improve the one thing I did indeed mention was the need to get the deals information out fast to get site traffic.

    ^ this... plus the latest DLC is a must - GLaDos is a bitch! wink

    I might get Orcs Must Die after I've had a go on the trial. Wasn't too struck by Dungeon Defenders, and I already have South Park (and still need to finish it).

    I found it became more stable after re-downloading all the Resurgence maps - that said, it still crashed on me last night... but at least it loads fairly reliably now - prior to re-downloading the dlc my xbox would crash 4 out of 5 times I tried to load the game!

    Cool. I just bought Orcs Must Die. I think Defense Grid is an amazingly addictive game. For 400 MSP, it's a steal.
