The Twelve Days of Coxxmas


By Coxxorz - Posted on 19 December 2009

In case you haven't noticed, there seem to be a lot of deals floating around this time of year. Most of them aren't worth their own News story, so rather than pollute the site I'm going to compile them here ("here" being my blog (OMG - I have a blog! (hey, can I have this many nested brackets? (it's like putting an emoticon inside of brackets - is that allowed? ;-))))) I'll also link to this page from the Coxxorz Random Deal of the Day widget, on the off chance enough actual content gets posted to push this off the front page.

More people need to get this so that we can get a HoC Squad!

And because of this sale the servers are flooded with n00bs, so that when me and Coxxorz enter a game, even one that is almost over, we still win by a large margin.

Hell last night we were the clear cut winners everytime, and we were drunk!

Coxxorz's picture

But since my vision was distorted and we were celebrating every single explosion, I may have just been killing Swag over and over.

Battlefield makes a GREAT drinking game. You get a kill: you drink. You die: you drink.

WARNING: Do not try this with Modern Warfare 2.

Looks like we might get screwed out of Castle Crashers if the shitty movie rentals continue.

Sorry Swag.

Swag's picture

I already have Castle Crashers.

And I just noticed that it says that the deal for the 31st is for BF 1943 from 800 points to 400, but the game is 1200 points..

Coxxorz's picture

Which explains why we've been hosed on some of the deals.

I'm saying sorry because if it's not on sale, I'm not buying it, so no co-op for Swaggie. Again.

Swag's picture

Well there is always Spec Op snowmobiling....weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Coxxorz's picture

Now I just need a deal on MS points, and I can finally play something that Swag has!

Unless he doesn't play it anymore...

Swag's picture

Just buy it. It will be like 5$, depending on how many points you already have.

And I go have games, just mostly loner ones.

Coxxorz's picture

You said "loner".

It's not bad, actually. I can see having a lot of fun playing it from the start with other noobs, rather than jumping into the hard parts with someone who's level A Million while I'm level Bullshit.

Swag's picture

Loner:A loner is a person who avoids or does not actively seek human interaction or prefers to be alone.

But yeah, Castle Crashers is fun with a bunch of people. Even though it only takes 2-3 hours to beat, it has lots of re-playability.

Next time I'll take a level one character then...

jumping into the hard parts with someone who's level A Million while I'm level Bullshit

Welcome to my world.

Swag's picture

Like, everything?

Swag's picture

is just each one at 400 points, not two or all of them for 400 points.

Akuf's picture

It was probably the Pitt or Anchorage.

Swag's picture

It's all of them for 400 points each.

Swag's picture

Well hopefully this comes true (and includes all 5 DLC packs, but when I thinkg about it....probably not).

Maybe you can stop trying to get the Fallout 3 GOTY edition, as I'd rather just spend 5$ for the DLC.

Otherwise I will get the other thing on sale this week *cough*ShadowComplex*Cough* that I wanted.

Coxxorz's picture

I'm gonna keep ordering that bastard until they actually confirm it. Then I'm gonna cancel.

Swag's picture

In your FACE Future Fail

Swag's picture

that Shadow Complex is on sale this week for 800 points (from 1200).

I will probably pick this up, as the demo was really cool.

Swag's picture

Tempting...

Coxxorz's picture

Or ask Santa. Only a few days to go!

MauriceRevek's picture

Is it me or does there seem to be something very wrong with the title? Coxxmas, coxxuka? Coxxadam? The winter coxxstice? Coxxing day? Oh no. I think I just gave him his next title for next week.

Coxxorz's picture

Coxxing Day FTW!
