Xbox Live Arcade Game Help?
« on: November 27, 2009, 01:05:08 pm »
Okay, so my boyfriend just got me a year's subscription to live. But here's the thing; I found out that we have no live games. So rather than spending 60-ish dollars on a game, I want to try and just get an Xbox Live Arcade game. So, what should I choose? I'm a fairly laid back gamer. I'm not really into shooters and action, but I enjoy puzzles and I really like innovative games. I guess you can pretty much say I'm the equivalent of a girlfriend when it comes to videogames. ^^;
So, what all would be a good idea to get that I can play with him? He's doesn't want Uno, though I'm getting it anyways. But, I've been looking at Marble Blast Ultra, and that seems fun.
Any help?

Honestly, marble blast was the best 800 ms points I ever spent. Got it over a year ago and I still play almost daily. Plus, now its on arcade hits so it's only 400 points. It's definitely worth at least checking out the trial version.
I don't ever want to feel, like I did that day...

I've played the demo, that's why I want it. It's very addicting, and the graphics are top notch.

Also, if I were to invest in a game, is Soul Calibur 4 any good at all?

For download, I would go with Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planswalkers, but I'm a Magic nut.

And the Soul Caliber series are pretty fun.

Soul Caliber is actually a pretty awesome fighting game!
I would only recommend it though if you have other people to play with online or in real life.
You can create your own fighters too =D

You could also rent games for like $10 if you wanted to try them out before spending $60 on them, or if you think you won't be playing the game for more than like a week.

As for Arcade games, try the demo for PEGGLE, Omagat, I am the peggle master and it is addicting yayaya.
Castle crashers is fun with a friend or two or three, online and local. It's a side scrolling beat-em up game, it has a demo also. It's $15 though :B

Alpha Protocol is the best game in Marketplace and if you haven't downloaded it shame on you.

Also last time I heard, Penises everywhere in Uno. Just be aware people like to abuse the camera.
