I picked up Duke Nukem for five bucks. It was time to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and luckily for the enemy I had one stick of gum left.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!  THAT'S A MAD CRAZY LIST OF GAMES!!! 
 
I don't really care much for MvC2, but for 560 points, I can care.  I'm far more interested in about eight of the other games on that list, including the fact that I'm FINALLY going to be buying Castlevania: SOTN for that sweet 400 points and Contra for 240 points.  Seriously, that's too low to NOT buy the fuckers!!!

I bought that last week as well.  Also picked up Earthworm Jim HD...and I was going to get Worms 2, but I heard it was a bad port so I went with Sonic The Hedgehog 2.  Now I'm kind of wishing I had gone with Worms 2.

A word of warning: Contra is the crappy arcade version, not the NES version.  It's missing levels and runs in an awful vertical aspect ratio.  I don't think it has online play either.  You'd be FAR better off buying three indie games for a buck each.

@SpaceInsomniac: Man, thanks for letting me know!  I'll hold off on that.  Just means I can put that money towards the awesomeness of TMNT 1989 Arcade instead!!!  I know that I'll enjoy that as my brother and I played the FUCK out of it when we were kids.  I think he's going to be buying it next week also!

If you played Worms Armageddon on PC, Worms 2: Armageddon will seem like garbage.  They made so many damn mistakes with that game, and it has issues that even the first Worms XBLA didn't have!  I used to write reviews for a gaming blog, but I won't post the link here (mods tend to not like that, and I don't write for them anymore).  Instead, I'll copy/paste my insanely detailed review of the game.
 
It's still very much worth the five dollars, but not if you have a copy of WA floating around.

I will definately be downloading Trials HD.  Kind of weird that they are releasing a Mass Effect 2 demo now...

Awesome. I'll be picking up Bionic Commando: Rearmed, Alien Hominid HD and N+.

I'll pick up Banjo Tooie and Symphony of the Night when those go on sale.
