This week's Xbox LIVE 'Deal of the Week' features a smattering of different games, big and small, and, much to my surprise, is a nice selection of games that have never been on sale before--something I thought would have been exclusive to the 'Countdown to 2014' sale, at least while it's still going on. There is quite a nice variety in this week's deals, with some games you should pick up and some you should avoid, well, one, specifically, you should avoid; if you haven't picked up The Bridge, $4.99 is a fine price for the beautiful puzzle game that only came out a month ago; and if you haven't picked up Girl Fight, $4.99 is still $4.99 too much for that ridiculous fighter. As far as the other games go, use your own discretion, but I will say that both El Shaddai and Beautiful Katamari are great, unique games that are worth your time (and money).
To get the games and whatnot, go straight to the Xbox LIVE 'Deal of the Week' page by clicking THIS, or enjoy individual links below. Enjoy them or else! Or else I'll send more empty threats.

And remember, the 'Deal of the Week' is only open to Gold members, so, if you have a Silver account, you're shit out of luck. (But, if you don't have a Gold account, you probably don't play much on the 360 anyway, eh.)
