Is it just me or have the XBL/XBLA deals really sucked this year?

Maybe I'm just not remembering correctly, but I thought in most past years since they started the SoA they would put most of those games on sale throughout Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Unless I missed something the only sales I saw were for games that most people didn't buy anyway with a few decent deals thrown in (like BGaE).

I agree. I was greatly disappointed in XBLA games this year. I don't buy alot of arcade games so its not like there are not good because I already have them either.

Last year was better, but the MK Kollection for $5 more than made up for it this year

They are really suck, so not only you - I was looking forward to more interesting xbl arcades and add-ons.

I thought they were all right, I came out with MTG 2012, Warhammer 40k Kill Team, Stacking, BG&E HD and all the tables for Pinball FX2. I would have most certainly bought Super Meat Boy, Outrun, MvC2 and the MK Arcade Kollection if I didn't have them already. There have been better, but this year wasn't that bad. I kinda wish they'd thrown in a few of the more recent 1200msp games, like Renegade Ops and NBA Jam On Fire.

I'm tired of sales - I want to see permanent price drops on older content.

Yeah, I agree. They drop the price on a few things every month, but rarely is it anything good. For instance, there's no reason Castle Crashers, Trials HD and Shadow Complex should still be full price.

I know I wasn't the only one who rushed out and got two 1600pt cards in anticipation of the XBLA BF/CM sale.

No Radiant Silvergun, no Guardian Heroes, No Black Ops map packs, nothing.

XBLA = worst market for Thanksgiving weekend.

Well you can always save those points for the 12 days of Xmas deals they have annually.
