I bought three XBLA games during the Xbox LIVE Holiday Deal program
by Major Nelson. In addition to the Deal of the Week
there was a deal every day of December. I wasn't even able to buy anything DLC or through a code before (my old account being incorrectly set to USA), so now that they got cheaper it was a good time to finally buy some XBLA games.Shadow Complex
The only game I played so far. I didn't see the attraction before, but since it's been getting such good reviews I quickly tried the demo and it was fun. I figured I'd probably like the full game as well. It turns out I'm actually enjoying it quite a lot.The Maw
I understand the game is good (the demo seemed to be), just a little short, but paying half the usual price should offset that.Castle Crashers
Again lots of good reviews, and I actually played the demo for this when it came out.
I also got some free, celebratory 2010 Glasses
for my Avatar and a free New Years Theme
Out of curiosity I checked the deals with my USA account as well as with my new NL account. Besides the differences in rentable videos, I noticed the USA deals showed things like "More than half of", whereas the NL versions more precisely stated "53% off".
