TrialsHD. You should all get it - even at full price.
You are welcome.

Personally I usually only get games most of the time when they are on sale.

Absolutely correct. Same goes for Carcassonne, Rez HD, and Geometry Wars 2.

That's the same as me. I think 1200 it too much for an arcade game.

Here is a list of games I've got. In order of ones I liked best. Everyone who has Trials HD should play the track I made it's awesome, well I think so anyway.

Super Meat Boy
Trials HD
Marvel vs. Capcom 2
Shadow Complex
Splosion Man
Sonic 4: Episode I
Comic Jumper
Castle Crashers
Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2
Call of Duty Classic
Greed Corp
Doritos Crash Course
Harm's Way
Bankshot Billiards 2
Hexic HD

Metal Slug 3: 45MB.

Metal Slug XX: 180.31MB


You can find this information out on your Xbox as well, just click "Get Trial" or whatever, and the popup says how big the download is. Will still ask you to confirm download. If you have already downloaded the trial then you only need to download a small "upgrade" file of a few KBs.

Currently on sale is: Age of Booty for 200MSP and Deadliest Warrior for 400MSP.
I already have DW (unplayed) and thinking about getting AoB, kind of looks like Overboard! from PSOne from some screenshots I have seen.

Also planning to get Sega Rally Arcade Online too. Pretty good for only 800MSP. Combination of Sega Rally 3 (arcade) and Sega Rally Revo (console) apparantely.

Gatling Gears and Star Riders are out this week as well. No idea what they are like lol

Just go check on the marketplace. You can open up the download window but not confirm the download you know....

Edit: Well Bradley went ahead and posted the details. Should know what I said for future situations though.

Anyone bought any xbl marketplace/arcade titles lately?

The last 2 I have bought are Nexuiz and Quarrell.

Nexuiz is like old school quake but with these awesome game changes called mutators a few examples are, explode when you die, double strength, pogo(everyone bounces around like they are on pogo sticks), low gravity and jet packs and there is so many more! It actually makes the game so much more fun!

Does anyone else own it?

Quarrell is actually a really awesome fun game and only 400msp but I am not gunna lie, it is pretty flippin' hard.



Im interested if anyone has got the 'house party' titles, is that new Alan wake worth the 1200msp?

Latest ones I bought were Ms Splosion Man and Beyond Good & Evil HD when they were on sale. Not played them yet, only just started Good and Evil.

I want to get the Alan Wake game and the I am Alive one. But I just know they are going to come down in price for a DOTW or some other sale in a few months, so I can wait until then since I have other games to place in the mean time and not much HDD space at all.

Also looking forward to the next Sonic 4 episode. I really liked the 1st ep and it looks like they have fixed a lot of the problems too.

Yeah there is a private match option, I presume its like the usual private game setup. Its weird though because it is suppose to be a 4v4 game but at the moment, online is limited to 3v3 and it says it will be 4v4 soon. I just wonder why that is so, not sure if it is 3v3 or 4v4 in the private though.

@kicks: Yeah they probably will be in a dealio but if reviews are good for I am alive then I will probs get it before a deal. I also played the demo for warp, really good game and I can see it getting really challenging might get that when its on sale. I might do the same as you for alan wake too, keen to plan it though.

Yea I'll probably pick this up tonight, looks like fun.

Also planning on getting the new Alan Wake XBLA game. That means if I buy "I Am Alive" and "Warp" I get 800MS Points free from Microsoft! This is due to the House Part Promotion which I think ends this tuesday.

Anyone heard much about "I Am Alive" and "Warp"?
