The Deal of the Week, Microsoft’s semi-regular offering for Xbox Live Gold members, is making a triumphant return after a several week hiatus. This week’s discounted Marketplace offering comes in the form of the highly acclaimed 2-D platform game Braid. Typically costing you a very pretty 1,200, for the next handful of days you can snag the painterly style Xbox Live Arcade title for a more reasonable 800 (you have to be logged into your Gold account to see the discounted price). While I’ve been interested in this game for quite some time, I couldn’t bring myself to succumb to the higher price point so I personally will be taking full advantage of this temporarily rolled back price. If you’ve played it, drop me a comment with a few spoiler free gameplay hints!
