Xbox live arcade suggestions

#1 Posted by laserbolts (5444 posts) -

So it's Sunday and I feel like being lazy and playing video games all day. I'm about to buy a shit ton of points and burn through some arcade games. I have already played meat boy, braid, limbo, and castlevania. Just looking for some suggestions on what to get. I was thinking about getting some dlc for la noire but I'm not sure if it's worth it or not. Anyways any suggestions would be awesome. Help me giantbomb people!

Shadow Complex is really fun if you're into Metroid-like games.

EDIT: Nevermind, noticed you had it on your Achievements.

@SMTDante89 oh and I totally forgot to list shadow complex. Yeah that game is great! Thanks though!

Beyond Good & Evil HD is also good if you never got a chance to play it back when it first came out.

Comic Jumper is on sale for 400 points until Tuesday.  For $5 it's a really good game.  The GB crew seemed to really like it.  It's not always the most fun game all the way through, but it is pretty much always hilarious.  I'd say grab that one.

@SMTDante89 does it still hold up? I never had the chance to play it back in the day. @CrazyChris thanks for the list. The only thing I can see me playing that I haven't already is deathspank. Would you recommend the first deatspank or thongs of virtue?

@laserbolts: Thongs of Virtue is definatly the better of the two, though the first one is absolutly not bad. Funnier quests and stuff in the sequel though.

@laserbolts: In my personal opinion, it does. Maybe demo it to see if it's to your liking, but I fully recommend it.

@CrazyChris: Those and Geometry Wars 2 and Magic - Duels of the Planeswalker.

@phish09 awesome at five bucks it's gotta be worth a try. Thanks dude! @CrazyChris Alright I'll get thongs of virtue then. Damn I have a lot of games to buy right now thanks guys!

@laserbolts: Also, you might find the humour in Thongs of Virtue funnier if you play the first one first. Can't really remember how much of the jokes are referring to the first game.

@mnzy I forgot all about geometry wars 2. I loved the first one. Sold!!! Thank you

@mnzy: Ah yeah, the Magic games are great as well.

I played the demo, and thought it was awful. I understand a lot of people like it, but it might not be for everyone.

Yes!! Dammit there are a lot of games to get. I remember watching the quick look and it looked pretty awesome. I'm gonna need more points.

Galaga legions DX, Bionic Commando rearmed, Costume Quest, Dead Rising: Case Zero and The Maw are all pretty good games. Also Stacking is a deal of the week next week it'll be 50% off.
