MS should have migrated all your licenses if they replaced a box for you.

Since I didn't see another thread about it , and it is Marketplace related , does anyone know any sites that are good resources for the various indie games available on the 360? I know that you can download and try the limited demos for them , but some of them you can't really judge by the demo , or be able to know whether the asking price for the full "game" is worth it or what not.

No word on Rocket Knight huh?


Joystiq just posted a new trailer. Release window is now May 2010.

I don't have a great answer, but I have some suggestions that might help.

Like you said, all the games have demos. I find that if you are on the fence about it, just skip it.

Xbox.com
1. I'd look at the star rating users have given the game. It's not a perfect scake since 1-5 is very limited, but if people care enough to rate it, the rating is usually justified.

2. Check the Forums. Some Indie games have forums that have content, but most don't.

MajorNelson.com
Major Nelson posts the Weekly Top 20. That will give you an idea of what other people are buying. Several games are constantly appearing on the list. I Made A game with Zombies in it!, Shoot1UP, The Impossible Game all are good picks.

XNA Creators Club

Every Indie Game releases is peer tested and reviewed here first. Membership is $99.00/yr (IIRC). That is really a bit of a stretch to just demo games longer, but good to know if you decide that you want to try and break into making games.

Here.

CAG/CAG users are a good source as well. Lots of people here will pickup an Indie Game, notice it's a great value or purchase and post about it.

You just have to keep your ear to the ground. Google search and see if anyone has posed a review online.

Hope that was helpful.

Good advice , didn't think about some of that. Will help in making some choices in the future.

I should have mentioned before that another resource I use is the occasional article in GI or OXM that talks about indie games. OXM did an article back in december listing 15 indie games that were worth checking into.

That game looks awesome, seems to be based on the tanks level of the first Fuzion Frenzy...which I totally loved. Too bad that isn't an XBLA title.

Yeah, I'm all for more Metroidvania goodness, but that's almost a carbon copy. Ah well, maybe if it sells well we'll get a new HD 2d Castlevania, or even an HD port of one of the GBA/DS games.

Credit to X360a.org

According to an e-mail that's been doing the rounds this afternoon from Microsoft, BioShock 2 will be receiving a batch of DLC next week. April 29th to be precise.

The DLC, called the Rapture Metro Map Pack, will feature six new multiplayer maps, a new "Rebirth" feature, two new multiplayer masks, a bonus "Kill 'Em Kindly melee mode" and three new achievements. If that's not enough, the DLC will also raise the multiplayer rank to 50.

The Rapture Metro DLC will be available on April 29th for 800 Microsoft points.
