1/Only Xbox Live Arcade Thread

I'll admit it. I'm addicted to the XBL Aracde games.

I recently got Outpost Koloki X (sp?) and am loving it, but I'm stuck on the level where you have to try to date the princess by building a dance club, jewelry shop, and earning 50,000. I can only seem to get up to about 20,000 before time runs out. Any suggestions?

Also, anyone pay for Wik yesterday? Is it worth $10?

They added a couple games last night, and according to the 360 arcade page, there are still 2-3 more coming out.

I just wish they were a little less expensive, like 400 points. 800 is $10. $5 a pop wouldn't be too bad.

Yeah. $10 is a bit high. Fortunately I snagged a couple of those point cards from the CC deal. Making them about $5-$6 each, which is perfect.

I beat Kameo about 10 days ago. Since then I have been using my $400 360 playing arcade games that can be played on my cell phone. How sad is that?

I'm hooked on Zuma. Majorly addictive. I highly recommend it. I d/l the demo and played it a half dozen times waiting on my point cards to arrive. Since then, that is all I've played.

Yep, I saw that Wik was finally online this morning. All that's left from the launch list now is Robotron, right?

Robotron, and then I saw Marble Blast and Crystal Quest.

Zuma is a great game. Very challenging, but fun at the same time.

Bejeweled 2 is very fun as well.

I played the Wik demo last night and thought it was okay. I played the Outpost demo as well. I'm not sure if I want to buy another game at this point.

I have 1000 points sitting in my account.

Geometry Wars Evolved is a consideration as well, and that one is 400 points.

I haven't D/L any yet...a few demos, but not a FULL version. I grabbed 2 cards from CC also.

I may get Geo.Wars...Gauntlet is a possibility also (if I can get my friend to get it also)
