Limbo now 800 points!

#1 Posted by Jackel2072 (2237 posts) -

as the title says. if you have not downloaded the game and want to, now is your chance to pick up for 800 points!

#2 Posted by Skytylz (4029 posts) -

Tempting, but it'll hit 400 at some point and then I'll get it.

#3 Posted by lucas_kelly (769 posts) -

Probably still more than its worth to be honest.

I been seeing that for a few hours on my xbox, thinking that was the launch price and have been waiting for 'tomorrow' to come around to see it discounted... 
 
Oh well, might get it later

Tempting... but I have a lot of shit to play already. Plus I'm trying to redeem some more points from the Bing Toolbar first.

I have 24 hours to decide if I really want this game. Brad seems to be in love with it.

#7 Posted by readymix (175 posts) -

Wow I was just thinking about buying this...now I'll definitely pick it up!

#8 Posted by Gamer_152 (14051 posts) -

I was hoping for it to drop a little lower than this but I guess it's still worth picking up now. I'll probably get on that later. Thanks for the tip.

That's the price it should be.

Yeahhh... I still don't know if I want to spend $10 on a three hour game. At 560 points I'd probably pick it up. 

#11 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

Yeah, it's still too much for me. 1200 points as its normal price is ridiculous.

I agree, that's why I'm finally grabbing it.
 
Btw, did anybody else notice that "Giant Bomb - 5/5" is in the game's description.

For 800 points I could probably buy something much better.

Still too much...

I was gonna post this :P Anyway yeah i definetly picked this up. I was pacing on whether I should get it at 1200 but now everythings fine!

#17 Posted by TheFreeMan (2712 posts) -

downloading it now. a price I can live with, whereas 1200 seemed a bit steep.

#19 Posted by RobotHamster (4171 posts) -

So tempting but I've boughten so much stuff lately and I'd rather wait for it to get to 400.

You people are CRAZY. Unless you stand morally against the support of independent studios, you have no excuse to be skipping out of this game at 1200, let alone 800 points. It's not about how long the game is, but rather, how long that experience stays with you. One of my favourite experiences of the past decade. I guess Braid was also overpriced?

I'm poor. I don't have the money to spend $10 on a 3-hour game when I could do the same for a game like Recettear, a game that I absolutely love, and could spend much more time with.

This was pretty much my response.

these are true words, some people pay 60.00 for 5 hrs of complete worthless bullshit, so how is 10.00 or 15.00 bad for a game like Limbo?

@project343: 
I doubt the experience will stay with me long.
#26 Posted by LiquidPrince (15845 posts) -

Man, I wish it was 400, then I would pick it up.

#27 Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff (5380 posts) -

Bought!

Depends. If great atmosphere and storytelling are things that you don't care about, then you're very right. I'd recommend picking up Super Meat Boy. But if that's the case, then I wouldn't bother picking up Limbo atoll--for any price.
#29 Posted by Hourai (2795 posts) -

I think Super Meat Boy is still going for 800 points, which will last you dozens of hours. For a three hour game with no replay value, ten bucks is still pretty steep. My family isn't doing well financially right now and I'm still a student, so blowing money on anything I have a slight interest in is a no-no. Also, you could rent any full game for $10.
