Here's today's prices.

20th: Platformer Games
http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Pr...20-platformers


Rayman Origins, Trine 2, and Mark of the Ninja are all worth buys IMO. Hell Yeah is supposedly very good as well.

Seeing Sonic on there, really makes me hope the WiiU fails miserably, so they release all their(Nintendo) old school stuff on the xbox.


I played Rayman Origins, it was ok, wasn't very challenging, reminded mf of a good game for a 9-10 year old, i got bored quickly.

…I'd recommend Dust to anyone that enjoys Metroidvania style games, it is easily worth the 600 points.

Grabbed Trials Evo yesterday...Fun game. Gonna download Walking Dead today as well. I've never even really watched the show, just watched the first episode 2 days ago. So I'm not sure if I should watch first or what
