    Probably going to pick up San Andreas since it's the only GTA I've never played. Thinkin of getting Halo too even though I still have my original disc.

    Nice, thinking of getting Halo CE and San Andreas.

    Does anyone know how the performance compares to running the games of the Xbox disk?

    I remember Halo CE used to lag a bit at times, especially in split screen but that was a while back and they may have improved the emulation performance.

    Do the games get any graphical upgrades? Besides the regular 720p 4xAA?

    I wish Microsoft would offer better/ a wider range of deals. Not really interested in any of those titles, and I already own the CE disc.

    Pretty damn weak effort really, come on this is black friday time, get with it guys.

    'Splosion Man is fun, but it's a real PITA multiplayer and becomes an abject lesson in frustration.

    The higher levels require insane amount of pure luck in timing to get past them. Maybe it would be easier with all 4 players, but with 2 it's down right frustrating because you can't even spare 250 milliseconds for mistakes. It's not even a case of network lag, as gaming on the same console didn't help much either. Also sometimes you do the exact same actions but the jump comes off ever so slightly different that it means failure.

    Then again, maybe Xarthna, Mister Pants, and I just flat out sucked at it...

    'splosion man single player is worth it. 50 levels and they require very good timing. Yes, Online MP is hard due to the timing required. For MP I highly recommend local.

    Looks like Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and Case West are 50% off on Live this week or... for the time being that is (200, 400 points respectively). I'll be picking up Case West for the co-op if anyone is interested. *cough* :p I hadn't picked up DR2, so hopefully this'll satisfy my zombie massacre craving for the moment. Should be fun for $5...

    Oh crap, forgot about this. I was also away from home for awhile.

    Did you end up picking up the game?

    lol yeah I picked it up since it just sounded like a good deal and had another friend who also has it.

    Haven't played it yet though, wanted to finish vanilla DR2 first, which I did finally.

    Heard they didn't fix the issue of saving while playing co-op, which is disappointing. Here's hoping that changes with the re-release of DR with Frank as the main character.

    Regardless, I'm always down for some co-op action if you are ever interested =p

    Yeah, that'd be cool. :) I've just been trying to figure out how to play, and just leveling up my guy. I've just passed the game once. Turns out you just need a healthy supply of shotgun ammo for the end, but it's pretty much just walk around collecting things and saving folks if you find em. :)
