Has anyone played Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, and what did you think of it? I am debating on getting since it is on sale this week.

It's a good game for sure, but if you plan on going solo I strongly recommend trying the demo. Playing with friends is optimal.

@Ballkirby
Yeah, It would have been nice if we had gotten a replacement (Marcus Phoenix, maybe?) but I enjoyed it regardless.

OK, Newbie question here as the Marketplace has changed drastically on me. How the crap do you know what is on sale? One would think that there would be some tab that stated this, but I've yet to find any.

Thanks for the info Fox.
Slapshot: There is usually a window box under the game market tab titled Deals and I think it has a purple background (although the background may change from week to week), or the one tab with all the lastest news (I forget the name of it, lol).

@slapshot82: You can find the Deals of the Week usually located in the Spotlight section on the Xbox Dashboard menu. You will see a tab that says "sales & special offers". This week's deals are Castlevania themed; Harmony of Despair, Symphony of the Night and the HoD add-on stages are all half-off. Deal of the Week is updated every Tuesday and new XBLA games show up on Wednesday.:)

Slapshot, you can also check out Larry Hyrb's (Major Nelson) web site for a pretty awesome list of the Deals. A google for "Major Nelson" should bring it right up. I've seen him talk about some additional discounts that weren't obviously indicated on the Dashboard.

Thanks guys for the heads up on the sales! :D

@Magi... Haha, I found that last night and his site is really helpful indeed!

Splinter Cell Conviction, well I've now almost beaten it the first time and I'm really impressed with the game. It at first seemed way different than previous titles, but the stealth elements are still intact, but this time around Sam is just really pissed off - that is an understatement too! I like the using the environments and stealth together to take down loads of enemies. It is a fun change of pace, and a great story line as well. The co-op options are really fun as well. Graphically a little disappointing, but otherwise it's a great $20 investment! I'm going to snag Double Agent to get my old-school fix on as well too! ;)

Glad you enjoyed Conviction! Can't really say anything about Double Agent, as I never got around to picking that one up.

@Fox...It's definitely different, but sometimes change isn't a bad thing. I almost said screw it after the first level as it wasn't what I expected, but I'm glad I didn't. After understanding what the game was about and that the Executions can only be done if a melee attack is performed prior to gain the ability. Going in for the stealth kill and then setting up a 3-4 person Execute perfectly is awesome!

Oh, I did a survey today from Sony and landed a $10 Amazon gift card, so I bought Gears of War double pack for $17. Yeah I know, so wrong to get a gift card from Sony and spend it on Microsoft, but oh well! ;)

Apparently, Microsoft is sending out early developer debug consoles for it's next gen system. I really need to get a 360 to catch up on the exclusives before the new console comes out.

According to the Update, that's 100% bogus.

Just picked up a 360 Slim yesterday, so anybody who want's to add me, feel free. (Gamertag in sig) =] Just picked up Halo: Reach, so should start playing the living crap out of it. Aside from that though, WOW I forgot how robust and awesome the 360 online was. PSN's is free for a reason...the 360's online bits are so well done and intuitive.

I know pretty much nothing what so ever about the 360 what is the difference between the $199 and the $299 version?

Is it really just memory or is there more to it?

I'm not really worried about all the extra bells and whistles I just want to play games and maybe watch Netflix so you think I would be ok with the $199 version?

Some games won't be ok with it. It also doesn't take long to fill. One or two downloads might do it in.

This might be a bit late, but if you're not looking to do too much the $199 model should be O.K for you. You can always use a USB storage device if you don't want a hard drive. Just keep in mind that it can't exceed 16GB and some of the cheaper ones have been known to have compatibility issues.
