I have 920 points leftover, what should I get? Here's my list of XBLA games:

Shadow Complex, Pacman CE, Splosion Man, TMNT: Turtles in time (ugh), Bionic Commando Rearmed, Geometry Wars 2, Limbo, Costume Quest, Comic Jumper, Space Invaders IG, Beyond G&E, Rez HD, Castlevania SOTN, NBA JAM OFE, Scott Pilgrim.

I'd say Guardian Heroes. You'll have a blast if you have friends to play with.

Braid is the answer you are looking for.

if you've never played SOTN then you should get it like now right now

You can't go wrong with Splosion Man, Castlevania, or Beyond Good&Evil.

@phrali: @Tacoboy1986: Unless I'm misunderstanding something he already has all of those. He said that was his list of XBLA games, not a list of ones he was considering.

@masternater27: Braid, as already mentioned is good. I also enjoyed the Misadventures of PB Winterbottom. If I have to try and recommend one though, I think I will go with Half-Minute Hero. I loved playing that game so much.

Edit: Also, since you say you have 920 points, you should use another 80 of them to buy the indie game Miner Dig Deep. It's one of my favorite things I've played on XBLA and it's just 1 dollar I've ever spent.

@metalhead87: yeah i so stupid

@metalhead87: Oops. Sorry about that, guess I misinterpreted the list. I guess you can't go wrong with Alien Hominid. I also Highly recommend Super Meat Boy. Its 1200 points. Gamestop sold cards that had SMB for ten bucks. I'm not sure if they still do, but definitely check it out. Also Miner Dig Deep is incredibly addicting.

costume quest

Yes, to clarify that is the list of games I currently have. I'll check out Miner Dig Deep for sure.

I second SOTN, amazing game.....but since you already have it I would recommend Mega Man 9.

Omega V is a great shmup, definitely worth a squirt.

If you can wait a couple of weeks the Black Friday sale should be good. Last year there were three games for 160 msp and a bunch of others for 400. Some very good stuff was included in that.

Scott Pilgrim is 400 points this week if you have Gold. Worth every damn penny of that.

Bangai-O! Missile Fury, Snoopy Flying Ace, Perfect Dark, Doom 2, Duke Nukem 3D, Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, Earthworm Jim HD, Guardian Heroes...

Those are some of my personal favorites that you don't have on your list. Otherwise you could also buy a crapload of good indie games.

Invest a tiny bit more for Super Meat Boy, perhaps? It's the perfect blend of extremely frustrating and wonderfully satisfying.

Just buy Pac Man. You won't regret it.

I'd put down some more money and get either Super Meat Boy or Ikaruga. Braid and Castle Crashers are both awesome and you can't really go wrong with Pac-Man.

I like me some of the Dishwasher games

I'd say maybe Outland, or Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team.
