13 XBLA hits go 50% off - Retro City Rampage, Dust, Quarrel

Postby ItchyRash » 02 Apr 2013, 14:40

Still no Alan Wakes American Nightmare :( . One day I'll pick it up. Not for 1200 points though.

Bought Dust: An Elysian Tale and Mark of the Ninja when they were reduced over Christmas, which feels like only a few weeks ago.

Wasn't overly blown away by Dust. Looked fantastic and very easy to master but the world was very shallow so never quite got immersed in it. Mark of the Ninja was fantastic though. Well worth the reduced price. Fantastic looks and great gameplay.

Not sure there's much on this list that I'm really interested in unless anyone can reckomend anything

They've had one before Itchy, you've missed it. Alan wake has been on offer sometime ago, got it back then.

Quite liked it although it re-uses it's locations quite a bit.

Trials HD was the first one wasn't it? I'd get the second one on offer.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. Curse you cruel world. I'm never that tempted by Trails. Not sure why. I think I just know I'd be crap at it

Actually the second one is on offer too. Not by quite as much as HD, but it's 800 instead of 1200, and that can hardly be sniffed at!

I was hoping they'd put World of Keflings on sale soon, might pick it up with Mark of the Ninja.

I grabbed Quarrel and Retro City Rampage. This offer helps massively for the current xbox rewards programme. Checked out Quarrel last night, but no-one else online as yet.

I also stupidly bought Full House Poker on Tuesday morning. Good game, but by the afternoon that had 50% slashed off the price as well :x . There's also a Microsoft Studios sale going on along with the DOTW (Trials Evolution next on my list).

The Now TV trial and Microsoft Points offer really paid off for me :D
