    Xbox 360 What shall I spend my M$ points on?

    After ordering about a month ago I finally have my M$ points, 2100 of them to be exact. I can't remember what I wanted them for so what do you all recommend I buy off live?

    The HD SFII for sure, if you don't have Geometry Wars 2 then that is another essential purchase.
    For nostalgia reasons you could go for Speed Ball II which also includes a 3d version, oh and Sensible World of Soccer!!!!!

    Braid is pretty cool and as mentioned geometry 2 and street fighter. You could always rent some HD movies out aswell.

    Funnily enough I bought worms already and got demos of a lot of the recommended games. Was going to get duke nukem but not sure as the graphics are the same as the PC version which I have.

    Bommerman for 400 points is a steal, was a bargain at 800 imo. Braid is also a brilliant game, and very original - really enjoyed that.

    Geometry wars Evolved is also class, as is the the Street Fighter

    I bought bomberman for 800 points, and bought the 3 expansions for about 750 extra, all money well spent. Sure I've spent more time on that than most of my retail games.

    I don't like xbox bomberman, its no where near as good as the Saturn version and seems to have quite delayed reactions for things like kicking bombs all for the sake of showing the animation. Shame, I really thought it would be mega.

    Worms for 400 points is a no brainer but has little to no single player.
    Geometry Wars 2 is probably the best game I have on there.

    Love joust as well but you can play that online for free and co-op never finds any other players so its pointless and not worth the money really cos its difficult to want to play for more than 5 mins.

    Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is a good buy for 400 points if you like that game.

    Doom, Duke Nukem and N+ might be worth a try and well if you don't want to play them on PC for free.

    And Braid if you want to play a really relaxing easy going puzzle game with ace music.

    I love Metal Slug as well.

    I'd buy street figther HD twice it's that good... But then I did chuck thousands of pounds into the original coin-op arcade so I'm probably a little biased...
