The hell is this?

i'm gonna save my money for bulletstorm, Fight Night Champ and Castlevania DLCs

Too many great 'current' gen games coming out..hell yeah!

Lets see. We have . . .

the sequel to Contra: Hard Corps
Bejeweled Blitz
an HD remake of one of last gen's best games
the sequel to the Diablo series
and the successor to 1 vs. 100.

Only one I am not getting is Bejeweled Blitz - it's just not my thing. Everything else is bought.



On a related aside, you kow something that I have noticed over the past couple of years? The content offerings on XBLA, both in terms of depth and breadth, not to mention production value and quantity, have matured into a sustainable console in an off itself. Literally (not to be confused with figuratively or virtually) in any given year, there is enough content coming to XBLA that a gamer on a serious budget, could get away without ever purchasing a single premium game at retail on disc, and still feel like they are getting a full game console experience. In so many ways looking at the content available, XBLA is like a modern day Genesis, or Turbo, or Super NES; and this is before you factor in the best 200 or so (out of over 1600) games from the Indie Games channel.

And if that were not good enough, Microsoft has gotten really sale happy since the week of Black Friday, with big promos and Game of the Week sales that actually amount up to real savings that are hard to ignore - thirteen consecutive weeks of '50% off this game, 70% off that DLC, 67% off of those games over there,' and the like, with no end to the sale madness in sight.

Who'da thought, that when Microsoft started XBLA way back in 2004 on the original Xbox, that not only would it turn into a concept that every console maker would copy outright, but would turn into a true game system in it's own right, capable of rivaling classic game consoles of old?

Add to that that some good DLC and Game deals (The Rockstar and 2K some weeks ago) comes without the Deal of The Week brand and lets silver member, the ones that don't play online to begin with and would be wasting money just to be admited to have promos, to be able to buy the cheap content too. Too me thats a good move, imo.

Yup, XBLA is superb. Best thing about current gen consoles IMO.
There is still room for improvement though. Is it that hard to permanently discount three or four years old games? For example Mutant Storm Reloaded that came out 2005th is still 800pts.
