I already own all of those XBLA games!
Posted by Scribbly

Haha, them's the breaks, new deals next Monday. I'll probably be getting the Space Invaders game, I was seriously underwhelmed by those Serious Sam games. Very uninteresting and generic. I already own Geometry Wars, EVERYONE should own that game.

Posted by SuperWristBands

Cool. I think we kinda need things like this here.
 
I know that not many people seem to care but you might want to add GFWL. I think they do a weekly thing. Right now Blur is $15 on GFWL.

First off, let me say thanks for the updates, they're very helpful. 
 
I ejoyed the Serious Sam games, but I'm with you, they were just meh. 
 
And Space Invaders is totally worth the 400. I wouldn't have paid 800 for it. Except that I did... *sigh*
Posted by Scribbly

 @Sasran:  Ahhh GFWL is a pretty good one to add, thanks! I've updated it with the Blur deal. 
 
Also a general question: Is it worth adding other smaller game download services like Gamersgate, or are they just dwarfed by Steam and Windows and thus unimportant?

Great job posting these deals.  Sadly nothing for me this week, but  I am looking forward to the upcoming Pac-man CE DX Sale

Posted by Trace

Nice listing of sales there, Smiley26. Seems pretty comprehensive thus far.
 
I don't know how its PC online community is faring, but Blur for $15 is a somewhat decent deal. It's certainly worth a try for anyone who likes kart-style racers, and wants to see what happens when you give the PGR/Geometry Wars dudes a chance to go nuts. A lot of their influence is pretty evident.

Awesome, thanks! Bought Geometry Wars 2 and both Serious Sam games. According to the Xbox.com Live Marketplace, both Serious Sam games are normally 1200 points.

Great idea, ta. Maybe worth having the deals from Gamers Gate and that other place which name I can't ever remember.

Impulse maybe? I looked on there but most of their offers are for games no one's heard of or they're still more expensive than Steam. I'll add Gamersgate on.
Posted by kalmis
@Smiley26:  Yeah Impulse. And you are right their games are bit too obscure most times.

Wow that's great - should be a regular feature on GB and Tested for itunes/Android stuff

Posted by iam3green

well good list. i don't think i am going to buy anything but i think  you or someone should keep this coming up every sale. i think it's a great idea for something like this.
 
i think even in the PC forums there is a thread for cheap and free pc games.
