Get Batman: Arkham Asylum PC for $12.49 this weekend

#1 Posted by JJOR64 (19572 posts) -

I was surfing my tweets on Twitter when I found THIS tweet made by Major Nelson.  Starting tomorrow, you can pick up Batman (PC) for $12.49 from Games for Windows LIVE's client.  That is a ridiculous price for this awesome game.  Besides Batman, they are going to have some games on sale through the month of March.  Hopefully the sale is on the good games they have on the service.

Has anyone tried buying anything of that store? I already have the game, got it on the Steam sale but i am curious about this system.

It's still showing of as 49.99 for me in the GFW client.
Ah, sale starts on the 26th it looks like.

FYI: if you already have it on 360, the achievements for this count separately which is awesome! B:AA was my first S-rank but I never thought I'd go double S-rank! I'm so buying this tomorrow!

Damn, it's a terrible time to be broke.  Between this and Gabriel Knight being released on GOG, I'm about ready to start selling my body for a little scratch. 
Which, uh, would get me about a nickel.

Awesome!  For that price, I guess it's finally time for me to play this game.  How can I not, with it being that price?!

I know i should be excited...but im not.  I wish i knew why i don't like a lot of really popular games and instead play mount and blade and tropico 3.

How do you buy it? it still says 49.99 in the client? Or has the sale even started yet?

How does Games For Windows DRM work?  I'm thinking of getting a computer that'll run it, but I gotta wait to see what the mechanic says about my car first.  If I take advantage of the sale, can I download it again later?
EDIT:  Just got off the phone with someone from Games for Windows Live, they said it's linked to the account, and I'd be able to take advantage of the sale, and put it on the computer that can run it later.

I'd pay double for an X360 copy, still $45 at Amazon.

Just got it myself, used points and it cost 880 MSP which seems lower than it should...
