If you have not experienced the greatness that is Braid, you finally have no excuses to resist!!! You might be planning on getting it on the PC soon, but if the price was the one obstacle to getting it (it was $15 before), this week only it is 800 Microsoft Points ($10).  The deal shouldn't last long, so get it soon!

Some of you who have already played may have forgotten its impact, so buy it again! Oh, wait, you can't. Then buy it on another account. Err...just get it if you haven't already, ;)

Good deal, man. Good looking out. It's a great game, and at $10, people have no excuse for not getting it.

I saw this last night, either Lost & Damned or Braid.

I took Lost & Damned and Geometry wars, plan on getting Braid this weekend.

I guess that is a good purchase, but don't forget that Braid is only $10 for about a week. Get to it quick!

About a week? Oh, that is plenty of time. I guess the deal will extend into early March, giving me some time over the weekend to bust out some Microsoft Points.

No excuse for not buying Braid at 800 points? Bullshit. I played the demo, hated it, so I do have an excuse for not wasting $10 on a shitty Mario rip-off.

Umm, it is not a Mario rip-off and actually uses that theme to shield its true meaning. Uh-oh I am getting into spoiler territory. Go play it, finish it and experience it and then get back to me. It is definitely not a shitty platformer; in fact, it isn't a platformer, it's a puzzle game. An extremely hard puzzle game. Yet it has an extreme sense of satisfaction. I am not kidding when I say that Braid was in my Top 5 games of last year and that it deserves all the accolades and glowing reviews it has received.

You're retarded if you laugh at people with a different opinion than you.

Unlike you noobs, I listen to the definative authority on video games, aka the master of all trades known as Soulja Boy.  Having watched his video review and seeing as I neither drink beer and get drunk, or smoke weed and get high, I would never enjoy this game.  Unless you do, have fun wasting 10 bucks on something you will never play

I loved Braid, but boy do I hate this argument.  No one has the time or the resources to play every game, even all the critically-acclaimed ones.  This may push some holdouts over the edge (good), but frankly to buy a game—any game—but only because it's $10 and other people liked it and paid more money than that means you have a serious lack of willpower or brains, or both.

Fuck! I bought this like not even a month ago thinking "Oh man, it's been 1200 points for this long now I guess they're never gonna lower it down. Might aswell pick it up!". Shit!

I admit I am one who hasn't got it yet.. but this price tag will do it for sure I think. Thanks for the heads up!
