Xbox Live Deal Of The Week: I Wanna Take You For A Ride!

Ahem. Even if you don't get the reference, it's worth noting that a number of good Capcom games have been given the Gold-Exclusive deal treatment this week including Marvel vs Capcom 2, Mega Man 10, Final Fight: Double Impact and Super Street Fighter II Turbo. Bionic Commando Rearmed is also down in price, and it's actually much better than anyone expected (and it's not the sequel, thanks DJTrouserPlank).

For my money, the best value probably comes from Final Fight: Double Impact. I praised its hefty amount of content in last year's micro review... though to be honest, I actually prefer Magic Sword to Final Fight. Horses for courses I suppose.

As always, click the links to visit the marketplace and grab the deals/ queue up the demos. Gold Members will need to sign in.

Groovy, I'll give this a full writeup (and credit you) once I've checked it out.

Just got Snoopy & the Alan Wake DLC (Havent even started the game yet so hope I actually like it!!)

Shawdow Complex, Monday Night Combat, Castle Crashers, Trials HD and Limbo are the Friday specials too

It's bionic commando rearmed (1) down from 800 to 400... not rearmed 2, unless you are referring to a future deal unbeknown to me.

You've linked through to rearmed 2 at 1200 points, and your articles mentions rearmed 1 being on offer but then goes on to say that it's not a patch on the first....

Was this proof-read over a bottle of wine in the beer-garden by any chance? :p

Ah, if only. I'd love to have some free time outside (that isn't a StreetPass event).

Seriously though, that's a good spot and a fair cop. I've changed it over.

Believe it or not, these links (and games) were copied directly from the official Deal Of The Week page while it was being compiled this morning. I think we'll wait for the afternoon in future.
