Every week Microsoft rolls out an XBLA deal of some sort, but this week is a real doozy. First up is the deal of the week, which puts Raskulls, A World of Keflings, Worms 2: Armageddon, and the Worms 2: Battle Pack at 50% off, making them a mere 400 MS points each (or 200 MS points in the case of the Worms 2 DLC). Some of you may remember my gushing reviews of Raskulls and A World of Keflings, and for $5 the recommendation of both games only gets stronger.
Next up is a Sega XBLA special this week, with Crazy Taxi and Afterburner Climax on sale for 400 MS points instead of their usual 800 MS point prices. Personally, I found the XBLA port of Crazy Taxi to be somewhat of a mess compared to the original, but Afterburner Climax could be a much better option at the lower price.
And finally, an Extreme Shopping tab appeared on the Xbox Dashboard with even more deals. Costume Quest, Monkey Island 2, A Kingdom for Keflings, Faery: Legend of Avalon, Zeit 2, Darwinia+, and Defense Grid are the highlights, all priced half off. But then there are also deals on Yu-Gi-Oh 5D, 3D Ultra Minigolf 2, Gyromancer, Doom 2, Quake Arena Live, Alien Breed: Evolution, and Unbound Saga.
All of these deals are leading up to a special one day sale on April 1. No joke, on April 1 Comic Jumper and the Dead Money DLC for Fallout: New Vegas will be 400 MS points each, while Deadliest Warrior and the Understone DLC for Fable 3 will be a mere 200 MS points each.
Whew, that's a lot of sales. Which games do you plan to pick up this week at a discount?
