  • $2.50 for the original Geometry Wars? Hell, I’ll bite. :D
    Would definitely grab Castle Crashers and Bastion if i didn’t already own them.

      The good thing about GW1 is that, even with GW2 out, it still feels relevant. Even if the sequel has a “Retro Evolved” gameplay mode which behaves a little like the original, the scoring and shooting is so different that it might as well be another game. So I think it’s pretty nice to have both.

    bad selection.. im not saying the games are bad.. im saying the discount selection for the 10th anniversary is BAD.

  • Glad I got paid today. =D

    Big reason I got a 360 was for the XBLA games.

  • I’ve really got to get around to playing Bastion.  Picked it up at a Steam sale and it’s been sitting in my library, unplayed, ever since.

      Likewise. Got it during that Humble Bundle that featured it, but I haven’t started it up yet. One day…

      Also, did anyone else see Wreckateer and thing “Recettear parody?”

    Are these actual sales, or are they Gold Member sales? Because, the latter does me no good.
