Their holiday sale had 2 month old games on for 15 bux, shipped. Some were some good games - unfortunately I found out about it too late - there were a few I would have bought.

That was not an Xbox live sale. The Black Friday Xbox live sale was so bad that Major Nelson got bombarded with complaints and had to promise to go tell the marketing department.

Sure... and some of the prices during the XBL holiday sale were pretty good. Picked up a few things. It's not as good as it could be ... frankly, I'd like them to balance points against USD value. Canadians get screwed almost as bad as the Aussies.

It was no Steam sale, but there were a few things I enjoyed (got the Trials thing for my kid - he LOVES the monster truck game on steam)

The Walking Dead     Arcade Game     28-Dec
8-bit Cartridge                Game Addon     26-Dec
Trials HD        Arcade Game     24-Dec
Rock Band 3     Game     24-Dec
Trials Evolution: Origin of Pain     Game Addon     24-Dec
Trials Evolution     Arcade Game     24-Dec
It Came From Outer Space     Game Addon     21-Dec
Sugar, Spice and Not So Nice     Game Addon     21-Dec
SONIC 4 Episode II     Arcade Game     20-Dec
 RAW     Arcade Game     20-Dec
 Jet Set Radio     Arcade Game     20-Dec
Mark of the Ninja     Arcade Game     20-Dec

If you want to use points for purchase, you might want to wait.  They're having a problem with overcharging points.  From Major Nelson:

Quote
Update: There is currently a system issue regarding MS Points showing the incorrect price. The team is working on it. So if you want to purchase via points, you should hold off for a bit.

Wait, don't I like most games?

Actually it was Azura's Wrath that I really liked.

El Shaddai was interesting, but it never fully clicked with me.

On an unrelated note - why the #@#% do retail play the  whole .99 game? Who are they fooling?

.99 may be "friendlier" looking than harsh numbers, but it comes across as deceitful.
