Have xbl points, what should I get?

#1 Posted by Peter (326 posts) -

Just found out I randomly have like 2200 xbl points, what should I get? Was thinking beyond good and evil because I've never played and ive heard nothing but good things. Other games I was thinking are pacman cedx, limbo, braid and maybe serious Sam but if anyone has any better ideas I'm all for them.

Get the ones that you just listed.

Get Beyond Good and Evil for sure.  I've played a little bit of Limbo and Braid, they're both good.  The Giant Bomb community loves Pac-Man CE DX.  I can't say anything for Serious Sam.

Braid and Limbo are my personal recommendations.

All those you mentioned are really good(I don't care much for Serious Sam, though).    I also really enjoyed Splosion Man and Super Meat Boy.      Also, if you aren't really super interested in any of those or get the trial and don't seem to enjoy it all that much, then just hold onto the points until some game or DLC you know for sure you want comes out.

I recommend ilomilo. It's probably my favourite XBLA game.
Pacman cedx was alright, but I think the other games you listed are better purchases.

You could get Sonic Adventure or Portal. You could even get full games on Games on Demand for that amount of Microsoft Points. Maybe Bioshock, Gears of War, or Gun?

Mass effect 2 dlc, Because more mass effect 2 is never a bad thing.

Everything on XBLA has a demo. Unless you have a low bandwidth cap, try out those games you mentioned. Buy the ones you like.

@Peter: I just got Beyond Good and Evil HD after never playing it before and I'm loving it.  I'd love it if they made some new games similar to it.

I really do not like Limbo, for more or less the same reasons as Jeff. The other ones that you listed would be good choices. I really liked BG&E when I played it last year.
