As the holiday shopping season winds to a close, take a second from dropping wads of cash on your friends, family and other loved ones and get a little something for yourself – and XBLA is making it crazy easy, because through today a number of platformers are on deep discount: More than a 50 percent slash in some cases. Hit the jump for a list of games you can nab for a steal today only:


This list includes some of the best gaming XBLA had to offer in 2012 – Fez and Mark of the Ninja were two of the best titles launched on the platform this year and are definitely worth a try, especially with those prices (we were also quite fond of Hell Yeah!). If any of these look enticing, get ’em while they’re hot – again, these discounts expire at the end of the day.
