Deals time: Alone in the Dark, Battlefield and more

It's Sunday and that means it's time to open up the newspaper and analyze those Sunday retail ads. Joy! And if you're in the market for Alone in the Dark this week, you're in luck, because there are numerous deals to be had. So, let's get to it ...

The only 360 deal Best Buy has going this week is a free $10 gift card with Alone in the Dark and, well ... that's it. Circuit City on the other hand is giving away a $10 J!nx gift card with Alone in the Dark, a free $10 gift card, weapon unlock code and grenade keychain with Battlefield: Bad Company, a free Hellboy II movie ticket with Hellboy: The Science of Evil, and either Bully: SE or SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 for $30. Also, if instant discounts are more your thing, Gamestop is offering Alone in the Dark for the discounted price of $50. Finally, (for our Canadian shoppers) Best Buy Canada is giving away Guitar Hero III with any Xbox 360 console purchase and either Shadowrun, Blue Dragon, Viva Pinata Party Animals or Project Sylpheed for $20. Enjoy Sunday and enjoy shopping.

Blue Dragon selling for $20

Mistwalker's first outing on the 360 wasn't exactly a break-out hit when it was released. Despite rumors of a sequel, it's not considered to be much of a success in the community. Now it's time to take advantage of that, considering that the game is actually pretty good if you can stand the pure Japan of the thing. Both Amazon and Toysrus had the game up for $19.99, but Amazon is currently sold out, so if you want a deal on a good JPRG you're going to have to make your purchase at Toysrus. And if you care to take a chance and hoof it on over to a brick and mortar Toysrus we hear that it's twenty percent off in-store.
(Oh, for any Canadian gamers out there, here ya go)

Didja know that the best RPGs are on the 360?

Microsoft just launched a new marketing campaign whose main aim is to get you trained so that when someone mentions the letters RPG your instant response will be Xbox 360. The Best RPGs Are On Xbox 360 is the campaign's name and highlights some of the best of the best RPGs that grace the Xbox 360 including Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect, Oblivion and of course Fable 2. Simply head to to get the dish on these super RPGs and if your interest is piqued, make your way to Gamestop. There you will find a free retail disc that comes packed with information on these "Best RPGs" as well as never before seen videos of Fable 2 and the complete Sci-Fi channel "Sci vs Fi" episode featuring Mass Effect. Now how can you not agree? The Xbox 360 is hands down the best place to find RPGs ... just none that are on the Playstation platform.

Blue Dragon anime headed to XBLM for the free

In celebration of Blue Dragon becoming a part of the Platinum Collection on November 1st, Xbox Japan will be offering a few episodes of the Japanese exclusive Blue Dragon anime series anime series to the XBLM for free.

Available on the Marketplace from November 15th through January 15th will be free downloads of the first two Blue Dragon anime episodes to all Xbox Live members (silver or gold). The anime series is a semi-hit in Japan's Saturday morning cartoon circuit, so we just might be in for some entertaining anime fun or a lot of dragon confusion. Whichever it ends up being, we're sill excited and you can't take that away from us.

Blue Dragon gets Shuffled Dungeon DLC in Nov.

Today, Microsoft went on a press release mission to remind everyone about the new Blue Dragon downloadable content that dropped onto the XBLM last week. But in doing so, they also confirmed that some new DLC will be hitting the Marketplace in mid-November.

According to the press release, a piece of Blue Dragon DLC called "Shuffled Dungeon" will be available for 400 Microsoft points (ouch?) on Friday, November 16th. We're sure the new "Shuffled Dungeon" content will be uber spectacular especially for all the "Shuffled" collectors of the Blue Dragon world, but at 400 points, it won't be an impulse buy. Anyway, more Blue Dragon money spending fun has been confirmed for November 16th ... get your wallets primed.

New Blue Dragon items now on XBLM

Microsoft sends word that a new piece of downloadable content is now available for Blue Dragon. This is the second bit of DLC for the game, the first -- Hard mode - being released last month. This new DLC is entitled "6 Treasures" gives players access to 6 new items that grant special abilities to their characters. One in particular -- the Shuffled Helmet -- creates the most powerful armor in the game when combined with Shuffled Splint and Shuffled Breastplate. Honestly, we haven't delved into the game, so we don't know how useful all these items are, though they will probably be welcome to those endeavoring to complete hard mode. The DLC is available for 200 MS Points. Check out the all 6 of the items contained in the pack after the break.
