I never had much of an XBLA game collection. I think I had about 5 or so purchased games.

I offer him $30 and he takes it.

Was being conservative with my points prior to this. No need anymore LOL. So, I also just bought myself:


Peggle

Trials HD

Splosion Man

Arkanoid


Phew! Call it a night. Call it a YEAR more like it.

Thanks for the tip, I changed the password on it. I won't change the GT as it doesn't matter to me. I just recovered it to my console and transferred the licenses so that my main GT has access to all the games. Schwing! Sorry if I made anyone jealous, just had to tell somebody about my score. It's the first real deal on anything I've gotten in years!


edit: Anyone have a tip on where to start? I played a bunch of Arkanoid last night before I went to bed. So simple, so great! I'll go by the Metacritic/IGN ratings but a recommendation on the best of my new bunch would be cool.

Is there any method to this? Meaning, do they actually review your name to see if it's offensive, or does X number of requests trigger something in their system? I'd like to change mine without having to pay for it.


/sorry to derail...nice pickup!

Derailing OK, it's a thread with no real substance anyway haha. I think if your name is obviously offensive then it doesn't take too many complaints but if it seems like a totally normal name then you need a few to get it changed (maybe 10 or so). Just get a thread going (not this one though!) and people will be happy to oblige you I'm sure.

Werd...I'll experiment and report back. To answer your earlier question, play Geometry Wars 2 and prepare for your new addiction.

I don't want to give any of them away though LOL mine, mine, mine! On top of all that, I'm going to probably get Shadow Complex cause it got such good reviews. Too many games to possibly play, maybe I should give some away haha.

The obvious standouts for new games (non-remakes): Braid, Geometry Wars 2, Megaman 9, N+.


And Splosion Man and Shadow Complex which you mentioned in asides are great as well.


Then of course, there's a ton of classics in that list too.

Put some time into Speedball 2. Great game. I think me and the guy you bought it from were the only two that got it.

Yeah, most of the old ports I played last night had zero players in online matches (player or ranked). It's nice they put online MP on those games but the reality is most of the time you will be the only person in the whole world trying to play it online with somebody! Kinda sucks, but oh well.
