Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Where in we talk about XBLA games!

    It seems like the quickest way to hemorrhage MS points is to buy RB or RB2. Every week hundreds of points disappear from my account!

    Right now just MM9 for my dl'd games.

    I'm not sure about any downloadable content as I think I'd get more enjoyment out of a new game. I also do not have RB1 or 2.

    Castle Crashers is bunches of fun. I found Braid to be a letdown.

    Castle Crashers? Good replayability for multiplayer fun.

    Symphony of the Night? Amazing Castlevania game, though it that' not your thing...

    Braid? Wait... how many points is braid?

    Umm.....

    A 360 without Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is automatically a failure. Everyone must have it!

    Geometry Wars 2. Everyone should own it, it is a fantastically simple and addictive game. Worth every penny of the $10. I would make other recommendations but I don't want my response to be diminished.

    Wars
    2

    Symphony of the Night is by far the best $10 game on Live.

    And I don't even have to play any of the others to know this.

    Yeah Braid seemed real cool. I always liked the time manipulation style games. I was gonna get it after I got MM9 but it was too many points.

    Did you play the demo? Just walking into the cloud room brought a tear to my eyes, the actual level made me sob, the sheer beauty was almost too much for me.

    But then again I walked into this game knowing nothing about it other than that it was a good side scroller.

    I didn't want to play the demo cause I knew I would probably want to buy it but I don't want to get more points yet. :s

    Here's an extra vote for BC: Rearmed but you really should be scoping out the trial editions of everything you can.

    Castle Crashers and Geometry Wars 2 are both essential purchases for 360.

    I think it will probably come down to either BC:Rearmed or SOTN. I played both of these a lot in their original format so I know I'd like them.

    I think BCR has the most new features though..

    At the slightly more obscure end, Omega 5 is pretty rad too.

    And Heavy Weapon.

    And Space Giraffe.

    Yeah I played the demo and it had me sold from the dialog alone.
    No! Wait! Please.. I want to kill you properly...

    So awesome. And graphics are cool too.. wait I mean WTF NO JUMP BUTTON!!


    I suppose this doesn't need to be open anymore unless people want me to chance the title and just discuss whats good on XBLA.

    Well to be fair I bought Braid and only played it for about ten minutes. I'm thus far unimpressed. I'll chuck an hour or two into it my next day off.

    I got the ds version since I figured it's more for short bursts of hair pulling on the go.
