Grab The Splatters and other XBLA games for half price


2:00 PM on 07.10.2012



Action-puzzle game The Splatters is now half price on Xbox Live Arcade, and since this isn't a Deal of the Week, you won't need to be an Xbox Live Gold member to partake. The game will be 400 Microsoft Points from July 10 - 16. Find it under the Sales & Specials section of the dashboard, or use that link.

I really dug the game, as did most of the people I know who bothered to play it, but The Splatters hasn't yet managed to reach the wider audience it would especially appeal to. If they only knew how fun it is to do the Flip stunt. You can't go wrong at this price.

At the last minute, I noticed that a few other titles published by Microsoft Studios are also on sale. They are Toy Soldiers: Cold War, Hydrophobia, Section 8: Prejudice, and Hydro Thunder Hurricane.
