There's absolutely nothing to be worried about until December 1st.

Somewhat related, I wish Bing would start sending out codes again. I submitted for about 400 about 3-4 weeks ago.

Puzzle Quest 2 is mine for sure. Voodoo Dice might be a pickup as well, I think the wife liked that one but I'll need to check with her.

Thanks for the list. I was only able to see a few of those things on sale before I left for work. I'm in for:
Nirvana pack 2 - 240 points
Portal - 400 points

I would get the other Nirvana pack and Lady Gaga, but I already have them.

I would get puzzle quest if it were 400, but at 800, I'll wait for a possible Ipod version. It was announced in May as a late fall/early winter release.

I might get Madden NFL Arcade. Does anyone know if it is any good?

Madden Arcade is a little fun. Sort of like NFL Blitz, but not quite as good. It's nice for short simple bursts, but they have some "power ups" that'll drive you nuts. They have one that flips your score, so you could have a huge lead and suddenly lose because your opponent flipped the score. That totally sucks. For that price, I think it's worth picking up, despite the older rosters.

I may pick up the Lady Gaga pack, that'll be popular at parties. M:TG is worth it for 400 points if you've played in the past, not the best version of the game in the world, but it's definitely got a lot of replay to it.

My big decision is the Trials HD DLC pack. Has anyone picked that up? Is it mostly hard tracks, because I don't need any more of those, thank you very much. If there are a bunch of medium-level tracks that are different enough from the main game, it might be worth $3 to play them.
Whose brilliant idea was it to put "The Signal" on sale? I'm sure those people who bought Alan Wake used are thrilled. I'm not buying "The Writer" until its on sale out of protest.

Guess I should finally check out Mega Man 10 demo at least.

Aren't they just the same track-packs (easy, medium and hard) that have been available for a while now, just priced lower?

For those interested in some more info on the Indie Games Winter Uprising IndieGames.com has Luke Schneider (radiangames) and Robert Boyd (Breath of Death) on their newest episode talking about the promotion and their games.

http://indiegames.buzzsprout.com/247...inter-uprising

I had tried to get Robert on our last episode, but we couldn't synch up our schedules. Boo.

Yes. I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on them. Don't think there are any easy tracks in the DLC, just medium, hard and expert, iirc.

I picked it up for $5 with that Madden pre-sale at Best Buy a couple months ago, and I like it a lot. Pretty fun, and the controls are simple enough compared to the controls in the main EA football games, which are too complicated for me. I find myself going back to it quite a bit in between rounds of Rock Band 3. I like the idea of the power ups ("Game Changers") overall, but there are a couple like the score flip/flop one that I could do without. They can be turned off if you don't like them, though.

Also, they're providing updated rosters if you connect to an online match. Bradford on the Rams, McNabb on the Redskins, T.O. on the Bengals, Randy Moss on whatever team he's playing for this week, etc., they're all there.

Anyway, for $5, I'm pretty happy with it, but it's not for everyone. Check out the demo and see what you think.

Yeah, I got them back when they first came out, and the medium tracks are fine - the hard ones are just that, hard, and the expert tracks are practically unplayable.
