DawnGuard is now showing as 50% off and 800 space bucks, which is weird as it was showing at 1200 earlier in the day... Same with Hearthfire, 50% off and 400. Seriously, was it 800 just to make houses? Horse armor with bricks, or was there additional questage?

Hearthfire's original price was 400, so I don't think the price has updated yet. I went ahead and grabbed Dawnguard for 800 and will probably pick up Hearhfire when it drops to 200. I really enjoyed Skyrim and wouldn't mind jumping back in now. My Skyrim GOTY edition purchase will probably happen on Steam.

EDIT: Hearthfire is now 200. I grabbed it. Crappy Minecraft knock-off, here I come!

I'd wait for the GOTY edition

Sound advice.

Bugger!

OK, marketplace will decide for me.

If I get an updated price of 200, I will get Hearthfire and DawnGuard for the reduced price.

As my wife just reminded me, I got the game as a birthday present back in August, and the MS points I am worrying about spending were a Christmas gift also. At present, this game has actually cost me zero bucks all told. Much cheaper than the GOTY will be, and I can keep the left over space bucks from this purchase specifically for the final bit of DLC, when that hits a DotW in the near future (I'm guessing).

OK MS, over to you. REFRESH dammit!

Hey everyone I'm looking for a crew to run through the Far Cry 3 co-op on Xbox with. Mainly just wanting the achievements since these are the last six I have left for this game so we can even do it on Casual for a quick and easy 120 points. I tried playing with pubies but after over 10 minutes of sitting in a lobby and not finding anyone I figured this would be a better place to look.

I will be picking that up soon, and Jekl and I are planning on it already - will shoot you a message.

Just checking all GTASC members got the Private message from Planting42 or if it just went out to captains. If it's just captains, I'll post the full email here, otherwise, bring on the 6th!

I'll get onto those reworked banners too!?!?

I got the TA PM.

Yup. Saw that we're starting on the 6th.

I know it said start time will be midnight GMT (7pm EST). Unless I skimmed too fast, I take it that's also when the weekly server turnover/elimination time will be as well?

I'd assume so. Will make it interesting, as I recall you had to 'refresh' a few hours prior to the shutdown time last year to ensure inclusion of score. Also means 8am for me for the cut off.

Hey for all you folks doing the GTASC, check out Deadlight on XBLA. It's a fun little game and probably the quickest 100% you'll get.

I would be more than happy to do that with you.

Evenings CST are good for me. After 7 or so.

...you know, incase you guys are actually doing something other than checking your TA scores on Christmas Day (lightweights)

FOR GRAVEY!!!!! :lol:

1. Sorry I'm late.
2a. Well done!
2b. That is a lot of gamerscores.
3. You can get achievements on iOS now? O.O

Wordament is the first and only iOS game with Achievements so far.

Plus I'm finding it good practice for Letterpress, at which my wife totally destroys me.

They mostly seem pretty easy too. I got two in 3 boards today during lunch.

Yeah, I got five of them on my lunch break too.

The iOS version has much more straightforward cheevs than the WP7 version of Wordament. Some of those require you to be some kind of a magical word-game ninja. "Finish first place in a round" is something I'll likely never get as there's always a savant out there who gets double my score. And that's even when I'm finishing in the top 5%.

I've heard a tip for this one that doesn't sound all that useful to me: play in a different language. Supposedly some of the other languages don't have as many players and even get down to near zero at certain times.

What's this, Certis is Awesome already tracking in the top 10?

12, right now. And the Dandies are 77 which means... We aren't dead last! Woohoo!

Team ink, right there...

Jonman is just carrying us right now. I almost feel guilty.

Almost.

My middle name is Atlas.

Wow, you guys dropped to 17 in the last couple of hours. GET ON IT!

I thought the first scoring period didn't start until Sunday anyway...?

Yup. This is just the meaningless preliminary anticipation round that hopefully freaks more than a few other teams out into blowing their Fallout 3 PC easy button games.

Speaking of which, anyone need FO3? Assuming GamersGate gets more keys for the Bethesda New Year's Bundle, I'll have a FO3 GOTY key to give away in the next couple of weeks.

OK, time to put it to a vote.

I'm currently sitting on 399 games played. I've held off playing anything new as I wanted to keep that for the start of the GTASC this Sunday.

I'm putting it to a vote, with feedback from the people who 'realistically' care as much about this 'inconsequential crap' as I do.

400th title?
Lollipop Chainsaw
or
Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown

I'm personally leaning towards a bit of Suda51 as the magical title, but don't let me sway the vote.
