During this month, most of us know that if you spend 2400 points on Arcade games and DLC on Xbox Live you will be given 800 points for free at a later time in the future.  
 
I seen this deal as a great opportunity to get some DLC I've been meaning to get (everything for Mass Effect 2) and some sweet games, like Scott Pilgrim. So I got some new points, spent my remaining 1000 points on RB songs, then 800 on Scott Pilgrim, 560 on The Writer, 560 on Kasumi, 560 on Overlord, and 800 on Shadow Broker. I have 960 points left and it's gonna be awesome to check my mail someday in a couple months and have 800 more points, on top of my existing 960, waiting for me :D Borderlands DLC! (I don't want Mad Moxxi, that DLC sounds like shit, and I already have Zombie Island so I'll be getting Revolution and Secret Armory) 
 
Just a reminder! If you want 800 free points in the future this is a wicked deal and a great time to catch up on some games or DLC you might have missed.  
 
What have you bought during this October to count towards your free points?

Pretty excited about spending 1200 points on Super Meat Boy a little later this month.
 
Unsure if I'll manage to spend enough to qualify for the offer, although technically it'll be like getting a 1200 point thing for 400 points if I do... Curse you offers!

#3 Posted by ShadowofIntent (288 posts) -

I've had my 360 since the day it came out and i haven't spent 2400 over its entire lifetime.

#4 Edited by SteamPunkJin (1286 posts) -

It's actually DLC and Arcade games only - no GoD, Avatar Items, Music, Videos etc.
 
My plan:
Liars and Cheats - 800MSP: Done
Undead Nightmare -800MSP: 10/26/10
Costume Quest - 1200MSP: I know it's sometime in October.
 
I have a few friends that have held off on RDR DLC so far and their plan is to nab all three and basically get one for free.

#5 Posted by MetalBaofu (1440 posts) -

Not yet, but I will be soon.  Gonna grab Comic Jumper, Super Meat Boy, and Costume Quest.   Then, I will probably use the 800 points to grab Monkey Island 2.

#6 Posted by DiscoDuck8k (499 posts) -

There just happens to be more than enough content I planned on getting anyway, so yay for free points.
 
New Revolution, Shadow Broker, The Writer, The Sacrifice, Undead Nightmare...

#7 Posted by Eristocrat (440 posts) -

Already got Comic Jumper and can't wait for SMB and Costume Quest, so yeah, those 800 points will be mine.

#8 Posted by Redbullet685 (6084 posts) -

Already used around $25 on L4D and Alan Wake Dlc, and some RB songs, but still need to get RDR dlc (Undead) and Costume Quest (May get it for PS3, though)

#9 Posted by ProfessorEss (7518 posts) -

I've spent 560 on Left 4 Dead 2's The Sacrifice and will be spending another 1200 on Costume Quest.
 
...pretty sure I won't have any problem spending the last 640, maybe Pinball FX 2, maybe Deathspank: ToV, maybe any number of things.

#10 Posted by audiosnag (1582 posts) -

Bought Comic Jumper.
Bought about 8 songs for Rock Band.
I plan on picking up Super Meat Boy. 
That outta do me nicely. Oh and the Alan Wake DLC.

You should check out Braid, Limbo, and Shadow Complex.

Honestly man, you are missing out. There is so much good stuff on the Marketplace.
#13 Posted by zoozilla (984 posts) -

Got all of the DLC for Mass Effect 2 and finally bought Puzzle Quest, so I think I've passed the requirement.

#14 Posted by Malakhii (1443 posts) -

Costume Quest and Super Meat boy should do it for me. 

#15 Posted by solidwolf52 (301 posts) -

So far i've gotten Comic Jumper, All Fronts for Gears 2 and some Dead Rising DLC.  Either Costume Quest or Super Meat Boy should be enough to bring me over.

#16 Posted by RichardLOlson (1852 posts) -

Almost there and I'll probably  finish it out tomorrow.

#17 Posted by Matt_F606 (319 posts) -

Not sure if this offer is happening in the UK but I just downloaded Sonic 4 and the Lara Croft game at 1200 points each.

#18 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7617 posts) -

It is valid in the UK, though the 800 points aren't going out until the end of November. 
 
I've already bought Comic Jumper and plan on getting Costume Quest next week.
#19 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

I think I'm going to get Undead Nightmare, Limbo, and either the Liars and Cheats pack or Dead Rising: Case Zero.

#20 Posted by A_Dog (738 posts) -

Costume quest, Super Meat Boy and maybe Shank for me. 

#21 Posted by Icemael (6364 posts) -

Is this a world-wide deal, or a US-only thing?

#22 Posted by GideonAmos (199 posts) -
@Icemael: Worldwide, except for Italy and France I think. 
 
But yeah, spent 1200 on R-Type Dimensions (really just because I got a new arcade stick and wanted to have some non-fighter arcadey game). Will probably spend another 1200 on Costume Quest or Super Meat Boy.  
#23 Posted by Icemael (6364 posts) -
@GideonAmos: Cool. 
 
Is Hard Corps: Uprising or Guwange coming out this month? I've bought Ikaruga for 800 and I'll spend another 800 on Lair of the Shadow Broker, but after I've done that, there's really nothing out now that I'm interested in. Except The Writer, but that only costs 560, so I won't reach 2400 with that.
#24 Posted by Zithe (1040 posts) -

Got Comic Jumper, waiting for Costume Quest.

#25 Posted by rjayb89 (7728 posts) -

So far I've purchased Comic Jumper (1200) and After Burner Climax (800) this month.  I'm thinking of getting Costume Quest so that'll be that.

#26 Posted by Synthballs (2193 posts) -

No, but I did in September. Motherfuckers.

#27 Posted by sorawesome (72 posts) -

i actually didn't know about this. though I wont be getting into it because I forgot the password to my gamertag hotmail and its been inactive for so long theres no way of me getting it back.
And I have 1 month left on my xbox live so when that's done, ill be making a new account, sure I'll lose my WaW map pack 3 I downloaded but oh well..

#28 Posted by mnB (71 posts) -

Still waiting for Costume Quest to be released :)

#29 Posted by Kaburorne (119 posts) -
#30 Posted by DeanoXD (619 posts) -

yup, i finally bought all the ME2 DLC, Lara Croft Guardian of light, RB2 Tracks and the Borderlands Claptrap DLC

#31 Posted by Atlas (2457 posts) -

Yup, all thanks to DLC. Bought 1,600 points of Mass Effect 2 DLC; Overlord and Stolen Memory were on sale for 400 each and got Lair of the Shadow Broker as well. Then rounded things off with Minerva's Den for BioShock 2 and then proceded to spend my 800 point boon before I've even received it and bought the latest Borderlands DLC.

#32 Posted by DoctorTran (1575 posts) -

Yes. I have.

#33 Posted by JacDG (2130 posts) -

First season of Sam and Max = 1600
Comic Jumper = 1200
 
so yeah, I have. I might buy Shadow Broker and/or Costume Quest and/or Sam and Max Season 2 as well this month.

#34 Posted by jesb (13 posts) -

I got all the Mass effect 2 DLC but the first two I don't think counts towards the deal.  Also got Lara Croft.  So I guess that and Shadow Broker is 2000 points if the first two dlc's don't count for mass effect 2 since that was a deal of the week deal. 
 
So I guess I still need another 400 points...

#35 Edited by jakob187 (21757 posts) -

Costume Quest 
Super Meat Boy 
Claptrap DLC for Borderlands 
The Writer DLC for Alan Wake
 
That's pretty much all I'm downloading this month, which qualifies me.  I just have to wait for those games to be released.

#36 Posted by TobyD81 (1231 posts) -

I've done it! There ere some really good Rock band songs this month, plus Comic Jumper and a deal on Mass Effect 2 DLC.

#37 Posted by noobcubed (27 posts) -

Heh, I would've spent more than 2400 points in this month anyway, this is just free money :) 
 
I bought:  
Comic Jumper  (1200)
Sonic 4: Episode 1  (1200)
Alan Wake: The Writer  (560)
Some Rock Band songs  (360)

#38 Edited by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

No. I refuse to, honestly. I like the days when I could get games for 400, and sometimes for 800. Now it's all fuckers at 1,200. I have my Contra and Super Contra, fuck you XBLA.

#39 Posted by 617_jbug (350 posts) -

so far 
SSF4 DLC- 1440 pts
Super Meat Boy- 800 pts

Games on XBLA are getting bigger and cost more to produce, that's why they're more expensive. That's not to say there still aren't 800 MSP games out there, they are still being made. It's just that the more high profile ones cost a little more. Look at Scott Pilgrim, that came out at the end of August and it's 800 points.

Any DLC or Arcade game you buy counts towards the deal. As long as it's DLC and Arcade games you're set.
#41 Posted by lowestformofwit (239 posts) -

This is a very smart move by Microsoft.  I know that I am going to spend 2400 more points than I would have this month otherwise.

Yeah, I'll be curious to see how this pays off for them, and won't be surprised if it becomes a more frequent deal.
#43 Posted by Construc (105 posts) -

Yep, I bought Monday Night Combat and Costume Quest (and super meat boy on the side)

#44 Posted by badwhodo (248 posts) -

i did but i can't remember what i spent it on. 
 
oh well, there's still more vodka...

#45 Edited by Diamond (8634 posts) -

Not yet but I'd better start thinking about it seriously.  I'll probably buy the Hydro Thunder Hurricane DLC on the 27th which means the next 800 points I spend (as long as I spend it quickly) will be 'delayed free'.
 
(I bought Costume Quest)

#46 Posted by ___pocalypse (554 posts) -

I bought Costume Quest yesterday but I had already purchased the DLC that I wanted before this month >< I'm not sure what else to get.

#47 Posted by Gerhabio (1977 posts) -

Yes, actually.

#48 Posted by Godot (208 posts) -

Does anyone know if Indie Games count towards the 2400 points? I've got 400 points I still need to spend having bought Super Meat Boy and Costume Quest, so I'm thinking of buying Breath of Death VII and something else.

#49 Posted by sizu (391 posts) -

not yet. 
 
the only thing ive bought this month is the deadmau5 mask for my avatar.

#50 Posted by Vextroid (1429 posts) -
