I am getting MS points today...I wanna buy 4 arcade games (400 MS each) Which are the best (I like aegis and contra--I want games that alot of people play online)

07-06-2007, 07:11 PM
Uno. ;)

still has a healthy number of people playing it online too.

07-06-2007, 07:59 PM
I don't really know what else is 400, but I'd go with Smash TV, Uno, TMNT, and I guess UMK3, but like I said, I don't know the prices on all of those.

07-06-2007, 08:24 PM
Pool!!Texas hold em!!Heavy Weapon!! And Pinball

07-06-2007, 08:49 PM

07-08-2007, 08:14 PM
Heavy Weapon would be something you'd enjoy... but it's 800 points.

Bankshot Billiards!
I forgot all about that game!
Next time I have a craving to buy a XBL arcade game I am mosyt definitly gonna have to roll with that one.
I already have Uno, Aegis Wing, Castlevania, Contra, Double Dragon, Spades, & 3D ultra Mini Golf. All of those a re great IMO. (Except Double Dragon)

i would have to say geometry wars...can be frustrating if your going for achievements but for fun its a nice challenge that will have u going back to beat your old high score.

07-13-2007, 02:31 PM
He already picked.... ..... I was gonna actually say golden axe. It is fun and I got most of the achievements in like 30 minutes last night. It is fun and really good for achievements at the same time. For future refrence(sp?) New Rally x is really good for achievements, Cloning Clyde is a really fun adventure game. Small Arms is cool if you get the 2.50$ downloadable content. I also like Aegis Wing ( cause it is free!).

If yer goin' cheap 1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade '89
2. Galaga
3. Dig Dug
4. Gauntlet or Golden Axe

Dont be cheap though and get Carcassonne, Doom, BomberMan, Castlevania: SOTN
that is all.

I see you already made a choice , but next time.

07-14-2007, 01:42 AM
I personally enjoyed:
Aegis Wing
Marble Blast
Geometry Wars

*All of them are only 1600 Points, for countless hours of my life.

07-14-2007, 04:57 AM
carrascorne is awesome

08-06-2007, 11:56 PM
Uno or Marble Blast are my favorites.

I have:

Bomberman Live!
Geometry Wars

Can't recommend Bomberman Live! enough though... !

08-07-2007, 10:24 PM
I like Castlevania, Sonic, and Golden Axe pretty much because of the nostalgia they bring, not to mention the challenges of achievements.

08-07-2007, 10:41 PM
Track and Field. I've been playing a version on PC for hours recently... it's THAT good.

Plus, the achievements are challenging!

there is so many games that are good worms is great and so is mk3 and doom get loads of gaming out of them.

05-15-2008, 11:57 AM
Right, i am gonna base this in order of games that i have.

#1 Geometry wars
#2 Uno (A.I on single player gets annoying though)
#3 Doom
#4 BankShot, Spyglass Boardgames
#5 Hexic 2
#6 Undertow (free)
#7 TMNT 1989 arcade (i only got that cos it was free.... haven't touched it since september)
For the keen eyed people out there, yes, i don't have Hexic HD. i deleted within 1 day of buying my 360... i'm so bloody stupid:Bounce:

05-15-2008, 12:11 PM
doom is my fav

05-15-2008, 12:50 PM
I would have to go with N+ :D always end up going back to it.

rocketman MK doom sonic 1-2 well like every one that i have which is 30+

05-16-2008, 11:05 PM
Cant go wrong with Pac Man or Ms. Pac man always classic games

05-17-2008, 03:14 AM
Uno, Tetris Splash, and Bomberman Live FTW.

Arkadian Warriors looks good to, i might pick that up for myself over the summer for a somewhat easy 200 and decent gameplay

06-05-2008, 12:02 PM
Geometry Wars, Doom, Pac-Man, Galaga and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3

06-05-2008, 11:17 PM
I'd say Worms, Small Arms, Uno, and Sonic
