  • This has been running for like the last month. At one point they had Orange Box PS3/360 and Left 4 Dead 360/PC aswell, but they sold out really quickly.

  • Sixteen “Imagine” titles… SIXTEEN… 1 (One) 6 (Six), SIXTEEN…

    It’s amazing to think that would be MORE titles in that Franchise on 1 platform alone, than some of the better known games…

  • I’ve gotten myself two 360 games, Assassin’s Creed and Ninja Gaiden II (which you didn’t list, btw), for myself and my brother bought me Mass Effect for the PC.

    I can’t seem to find the Witcher though, they must already be sold out where I am.

  • I picked up Red Faction: Guerrilla, Far Cry 2 and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing for the PC a while back – damned good value for the lot of them! (especially with the FC2 Fortunes pack being $2 at Game)

    I found RF:G to be a solid port and as an added bonus the PC version is pre-bundled with the DLC.
    And All-Stars Racing is awesometastic fun with my GF after downloading the hack that lets you customise controls and use non-360 gamepads (an annoying flaw with the unmodified game – but customising controls with a text editor is better than having to replace three USB gamepads with ones at least triple the price)

    If I didn’t already have them I’d say Burnout, Dead Space, and The Witcher for PC are also fantastic bargains.. but I don’t see the point in DIRT for $25 – the budget rerelease is only $20 and for $30 in a smaller (or ebay) store you can get a DIRT/GRID/FUEL triple pack!

  • i dont really know what to think of some of these titles. i was looking through the X360 titles first and thought there wasnt anything worth grabbing. then i read on to the wii and ds lists, and, um….. spam anyone?

    every trip to EB i look at how nintendo is selling their soul over and over to 3rd party idiocy and monetary gain, and i remember the nintendo 64 lineup which formed the basis for my current gaming obsession.

    the one thing i would like to do is pick up oblivion goty (though the x360 one isnt goty, shame), i loved that, and maybe gears of war or mirrors edge, but these titles would be to bulk out my existing collection, as i have traded these games in after completion, and want them back for sentimental value.

    p.s. orange box? it was ridiculous value at $99.95
    no wonder it sold out.
