I really need something new to play that isn't Super Meat Boy, Limbo or Shadow Complex...

Castle Crashers.  
Dead Rising Case Zero is definetly worth the 400 points too.

Maybe Uno or Puzzle Quest?  Depends what you like to play.  My friends swear by that Magic: The Gathering game.

N+ if you liked Meat Boy.
 
Not N+ if you punched a baby after Meat Boy.

Well, what kind of games do you enjoy?
 
For adventure (point and click) games there is the Monkey Island games and Sam and Max. 
For strategy styled games there is  Greed Corp, Toy Soldiers
Other platformingish games include Braid, BC: Rearmed, Winterbottom.
There are tons of SCHMUPS if you are into those.
For the shooters stuff like Monday Night Combat, Battlefield 1943.
Several different board/card games like Carcassone, Uno, Ticket to Ride.
 
There's tons of good stuff, what are you into?

Braid is great especially if you are playing with someone else to bounce ideas off - it's a bit easy to get stuck on your own. Castlevania SOTN if you didn't play it back in the day. The new super Pac-Man looks amazing as does Space Invaders Infinity Gene.

Trials HD or 'Splosion Man are good if you don't already have them.

Geometry Wars 2 is addictive, and besides the three games you mentioned, is the best game on XBLA.

I really enjoyed the hell out of Pac-Man Championship Edition though I would hold out until the sequel which seems to be a 100 times crazier.

I just beat Costume Quest last night, and it was one of the greatest XBLA games I've played. 
 
Plus it's Double Fine, so you know you can't go wrong. Try the demo, it gives you a good amount of time to get a feel for the game.  
 
Also, Monday Night Combat.

I loved the goofy music. But I didn't like the game enough to spend money on it.
 
OT: Try Braid. That game is amazing.

 But I only have 206 of them. That seems kinda expensive. 
 
Seriously though, I agree. Although it's a hard game for sure. At least it was for me.

Shadow Complex (Yeah I know you've already played it but I'm putting it down anyways)
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World The Game
 
My two favourites, personally. Haven't had more fun with any game than those two. I also liked Castle Crashers too, and I had some fun with Alien Hominid.

You aren't. 3D fighting with 2D graphics = dumb.
 
I liked everything else about it though.

I download extra content here or there. But I only have 2 XBLA titles. First being Battlefield 1943, which I think is a great title. The second one being Dead Rising: Case ZeroN which in my opinion is more then enough, so you can save yourself from wasting money on full version of the game.
