[OFFICIAL] Xbox Live Arcade Thread

Recommended Posts

For those confused with the first few posts in the thread, this thread was originally an announcement for Small Arms available on Xbox Live. This first post was a definitive list of Xbox Live Arcade titles, but after years of not being updated was removed.

Xbox

Xbox Live Arcade can be accessed via a DVD, included in the Live Starter Kit. If you live in the US or Canada, you can order the disc on its own here.

I'm thinking, maybe we should have a sticky of Xbox Live Arcade titles, much like the Demos one we have already

I will also agree.... how do we request such a thing?

I guess somebody would start it, and then constantly update it, and then hope it becomes sticky.

Or we could ask a mod.

LOL. I guess PureLegend is stuck with the job since he's the only one that will be able to re-edit whenever a new game is released. :laugh:

Well, sure, I guess I could, I mean, how hard could it be...right? :blink:

As soon as I've posted this, I'll move my list to my first post, and add Small Arms to the list :happy:

EDIT: Done!

Great Idea. :yes:

@ Pure Legend (or whomever is going to updated it)

I will do my best to realize when it has been updated, but you may also want to try and send me a PM every-time you update the list.

I will make sure to change the Title Description to include the last time it has been updated.

For example I put "Updated: November 22nd 2006" into the Topic Description before I made this post.

So just keep letting me know when you update it, and I will change the description to match the date the updates were made. (Y)

Yea, it's a lot like Smash Brothers (as I posted previously) and it is a lot of fun. Good party game.

I'm going to start going into withdrawal soon. Damn me for thinking it wouldn't be worth it to bring my box home for the 5-6 days I'm home for Thanksgiving Break. Just have to wait until Sunday night...

Anyone has played Contra? I'm going to get Geometry Wars and Small Arms which would leave me with 600 points. Any other game any of you guys recommend? I already got Zuma and Smash TV, but I don't know if Contra is worth it or if I should wait until I get more points to get the Oblivion Knights of the Nine pack for 800 points.

Suggestions please! :D
