Friday's deals are on Left 4 Dead 2 and DLC, Killer is Dead, Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, and the Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare pack.
There are also the usual Gold Member deals of the week. I can't find a list right now but I know Katamari was one of them. You could always look at your Xbox dashboard if you care about such things.
I still can't buy any of the sales. Bad time of year for your account to have "issues."
Left 4 Dead 2 was free on Steam the other day. Maybe it still is?
I'd post my last Wii U and 3DS threads but the Nintendo eShop is down because their network is having "issues" too. So did Steam the other day. Clearly there is no better idea than an always-on console.
I bought a Wii U! I got the Deluxe bundle with New Super Mario Bros U and New Super Luigi U. I also added on ZombiU, Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, and Super Mario 3D World. Now to rearrange things behind the TV and set up the universal remote, ugggghhhhhh #firstworldproblems
Here are the Nintendo digital downloads for the week, even though the store might not actually be up and running yet:
Wii U • Dr. Luigi ($14.99, available December 31) • Super Punch-Out!! • CastleStorm
3DS • Mario Tennis • Cubit the Hardcore Platformer Robot • Bird Mania Christmas 3D • EDGE
I had hoped for Super Mario Bros 3 on the 3DS Virtual Console, but I guess not. #firstworldproblems
Actually, the game and the comic have different endings, and the game is light enough on plot that it doesn't spoil much of anything, really. Also the game owns, it's basically a River City Ransom clone with awesome chiptunes.
