    I'm going to get some MS points for the first time... ever.. today!

    Just wondering what games i should buy? I was thinking of getting megaman 9 because it's been getting some good reviews and i enjoyed the demos, but what else should i get?

    Things i already have

    COD 4 maps (i have GOTY edition)
    TES Shivering isles expansion (got it on disc)


    and thats all i have. So yeah... what to buy? (i think i'm getting the 4200 points card)

    I'd say get a PS3 much better for a start.

    But realistically, i heard the GoW stuff is quite good

    Shut up.

    In my opinion, the best XBLA games are Braid, Rez HD, Castlevania, Castle Crashers, Geometry Wars 2, Pac-Man CE, Worms, Bionic Commando: Rearmed

    Hey thanks you! That's a fairly big list. I'm probably going to buy Bionic Commando, and i'll get the demos of the others to see which i like.

    That the game with errr harpoons and stuff? Yeah think so. Its alright for....not long. There was a time when you could get the full version for free because of xbox downtime I think. I dont know if that still applys?

    Yeah, Marble Blast Ultra is good too. Also check out N+. Very simple gameplay and graphics, but very addictive, great offline and online multiplayer and a ton of content.
