I have nearly 3,000 points to spend (thanks BING etc.); I normally horde some points in case some DLC for a game I want come out (any word on NEW Far Cry 3 DLC? excluding the pre-order bundle stuff). But I kind of want to get a XBLA game; I'm hesitant on Fez because of the patch ordeal - game ruining?

I was debating between Fez, Trine 2, The Cave, possibly willing to try Bastion too. Downloading demos for each now.
Reservations: Fez's update bug ruining game saves..
The Cave is possibly "messy controls" regarding jumping - huge part of the game.

Thoughts?

Edit: Also, if you guys/gals have played multiple of these, which has more replay value or at least is lengthy? Bastion?

Is that like a tower defense game? I'm not really into those, only enjoyed Plants vs Zombies.

Bastion is one of the best games I've played in a long time.

It's a 3rd person 3D tower defence game with WarCraft III / Torchlight style artwork. Highly entertaining and very amusing. I would download the demo and give it a go.

Go with Trine 2. A really underrated game and if you enjoy eye candy, then this game is full of it. The original was excellent and this is just as good.

Fez is ok, the main game is easy though and over very quickly.
Bastion is good. I never saw why it got so much praise as it did though.
The Cave. Not played enough yet to have too much of an opinion but so far the jumping isn't that bad. I haven't had it annoy me yet.

Have you played "Mark of the Ninja"? If oyu have, my second choice would be Fez. Bastion 3rd.

I know you don't have it listed. But I always recommend [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marble_Blast_Ultra"]Marble Blast Ultra[/url] to friends and such when they ask for a good cheap arcade game. I bought it about 3 years ago and I still play it from time to time. It took me almost an entire year (on and off playing) to beat every level under par (Schadenfreude will make you rip your hair out. :p) I think it's only 400 points as well. It is definitely worth it, if you like challenging physics puzzle-ish type games.

Really? Wow... That makes me sad. Guess I am glad I still have it then. Such a fun game, and there are always plenty of people playing multiplayer as well. :/

I say Mark Of The Ninja as well. Looks fantastic, and has been getting amazing reviews all around.

I actually downloaded the Fez demo and the Bastion demo, only got to try out Fez due to a busy few days (which I enjoyed, and the music was great). Probably will pick up Fez, and Demo Mark of the Ninja since so many of you mentioned it. Getting another 400 MS Points today via BING so, I guess I'll take other suggestions too :p

I really want to download the 'Omega' DLC for ME3 but I know it is not worth 1200 points..
Lastly, I'm about to google it (check daily for this) but anyone know about FC3 DLC? Beyond the pre-order bundle that recently came out? I'm nearly 100% on the game's achievements and if there is not anymore DLC I was going to trade it in.

Bing rewards points for using Bing as a search engine. A certain amount of Bing rewards points = MS points for XBL etc.
