    Default Xbox Live Arcade games?

    Finally taken the plunge and bought myself a 360....

    Which Arcade games do I need to buy? Braid has good reviews.

    Anything else? Did that Goldeneye conversion ever materialise?


    ....oh....how do I get the arcade points?

    Best way to buy them is through tesco Jersey or similar, they used to come up for about 12 for 2100 points but are now about 14.

    I don't know what sort of games you're into but texas hold em is good to pass the time & n+ is a decent puzzle game. If you fancy a shoot em up a bit like silkworm then download the demo of heavy weapon, it goes on for a long time & I still play it from time to time and is free . Worms is a good game to play against friends, I like uno for a chilled out game.

    Sweet. I played N+ on my PSP, and Portal on the PC - great games

    Is there a cheapo way to buy these points via e-mail or something....or is it play/amazon?

    uno is a good one for a chill out game, texas holdem isnt available to download anymore i was going to but it was gone

    i ended up downloading the arcade pack game (xboxl reloaded game) to get the holdem as my mates play it on there.

    worms is on there, not a fan myself but loads like that.

    tbh the only one that does get played by me is uno and thats when everyone on my list goes offline and i cant be arsed playing gears with yanks.

    you do need somewhere to store the games but they are not huge, i would invest in a hard drive, ebay is your best bet for a 20 gig second hand job nice and cheap. hd also needed for game saves ect...

    Don't buy uno mate buy the orange box it's much better value. Well I just looked it up on shopto.net where I bought it a couple of months ago for 12 & now it's 14.98. I mainly say it's better value because portal off xbla is 1200 points (I think) & has only a few new levels. Something to consider anyway

    They are doing an upgrade scheme now for owners of xbox arcade consoles:

    You can get a 20GB HDD for 12.99, that should get you started
