Attention GB! Stacking is 75% off on Xbox Live (300 MSP!!)

That's right, that price deserves two explanation points. It's that good.

I've been waiting for Stacking to hit a price that I was comfortable buying it at, and 300 MSP is an amazing price, and probably as good as it is going to get. I just started playing it after buying it and am really enjoying myself right now, that Double Fine charm shines through bright with this one.

So yeah, hey, you should get this. Even if you are just curious about it, 300 points is worth a risk just to support Double Fine and keep them doing what they do.

I got it during the 300 MS sale and I'm happy I did. Such an amazing game in my eyes. I love the vintage style of everything, and the concept of stacking the dolls and the whole Where's Waldo aspect of collecting unique dolls!

@rockyhorrorgerri: Yup I completely loved it when I played through. Thought the humour was great most of the time, and I could not stop laughing at the stupidity of the explosion at the end. I won't say anything more about that just so I don't spoil anyone, but yeah, AMAZING.

That means no one has an excuse not to buy it. I fucking love this game. It was in my own Top 10 the year it came out. It's a great game.

Looks like the sale is actually over now, must've just ended yesterday. Sorry anyone who sees this now.

Doesn't matter. People should still buy this game. Don't let these fuckers off the hook!

I really dug the art style, but the gameplay bored me. I don't want to buy it. And I think I got it for free on PS3. I don't know how, because I don't have PS+ anymore.

That is a really good deal but to bad I already own it on all 3 platforms.

@Rabid619: I just got to the triple-decker train level, will start that later tonight so I'll see the explosion later today. I love the story its pretty cute but the music and art style, ahh soo good!!

@rockyhorrorgerri: Yeah the whole game is incredibly charming from head to toe. I'm sure a lot of people don't like the silent film style to the cutscenes, but I ended up loving them by the end of it.

Though I'm still surprised a game about Russian Stacking Dolls exists. Extremely happy it does, but so, so weird.

@Rabid619: How can one not love the cutscenes, I think more games need that style of conveying the story.

@rockyhorrorgerri: Some crazy people are somehow immune to the charms of Double Fine.

I'd like to see more games use a different approach to story telling. Honestly, if all games started using silent film styled scenes I'd become bored of it rather quickly, but because it was such a breath of fresh air I just adored it all the way through.

@rockyhorrorgerri: They're charming as hell, but some of them are incredibly slow and long winded.

@Peanut: But thats the charm of them!

@Rabid619: Yeah but then again most games wouldn't fit the style of silent scenes as it is, so not many just the occasional one.
