I just grabbed Dust. It looked too beautiful to pass.

Depends on what you're looking to get out of it. If you want an action game with zombies, pass on this. It's leans away from Shank and more towards Limbo ( though not as good.) Some really beautiful artwork but sometimes you'll wonder exactly what you need to do to proceed. I think it's a game that should be discussed in terms of game design but somebody who just wants to blow off some steam and cap some zombies won't like it.

Rumor has it that the first episode of The Walking Dead will be free on XBL tomorrow and on Friday all of the other episodes will be on sale. If that's a 50% off sale you could have the complete game for $10. Pretty sweet deal.

I picked up Dust: An Elysian Tail last night. I watched a few videos of the gameplay and it blew me away. Looking forward to playing it.

Oskar, Dust a beautiful game. I was sooooooooooo sad when I finally beat it. Hopefully we get a second installment.

You lucky bastids....I want to play Dust so bad, but I don't have a 360. I pray to the gaming gods that it makes it to Steam sometime.

It's not usual for me, but I didn't even try the Dust demo before buying. Just bought it blind. At the very least I can look at the pretties if I somehow don't enjoy it.

Only tomorrow? Do you know if it would be possible to claim it online and than download it on Wednesday?

I think it is going to be free till 31st. Let me check for you.

EDIT: Yup, according to CAG, it will be free for the entire week.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 24, 2012 8:35:01 AM PST
Well, the rumor is that it will be free from the 25th to the 31st. You can usually get stuff from the website and it will be added to your system's download list. I did it for Wreckateer. However, when Haunt was free it could only be done through the console. It really depends on how they choose to implement it.

In short, I have no idea.

I read it took the guy who made it nine years to complete as everything is hand drawn.

It's about four years in the making (He started working in late 2008). Still a really long time!

When the game was $15 it sold about 70,000 copies (according to the level one leaderboards at the time.) After MS took their cut he got about $700,000. Divide that by four years and he made about $175,000 per year minus the costs of voice work and music. He'll probably pull another six figures from this sale.

Not too shabby.

That's awesome. I'm happy for the dude. From the Polygon article I read, he had to sacrifice a lot of family time to work his butt off on the game (e.g. His third child was born while he was in crunch time for release). Sounds like he can sit back and relax with the family for a while.

Updated OP with deals for 12/25 (deals are live now.) Some 75% off deals on a couple of decent games.

The Walking Dead Episode 1 is free until 12/31. Yes, you can get it from the website and it will be added to your console.

Can you post a link?

http://marketplace.xbox.com:80/en-US/Product/The-Walking-Dead/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d802584111de

All of the episodes and trailers are on that page. The first episode is about the seventh one down.

I am interested in Borderlands but I would love to see a sale for Left 4 Dead 2.

Donkey Punch says:
Dude, it said the full game was free.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 25, 2012 12:59:14 AM PST
Prankster says:
No, although it says full game free, if you read the description it's only the first episode.

Each episode is considered it's own game.

Yeah, I realized that last night. Thanks for the link, buddy. Free is good.
