Retail - Lost Odessey
XBLA - Geometry Wars 2

Its a bit greedy to do a massive list, these 2 are tops though.

There seem to be a few of these, the ones that it just wont let you have.

I keep trying to purchase Xevious. ......because it's freaking Xevious! But the damn thing ABSOLUTELY REFUSES TO DO IT every goddamn time, despite it BEING ON THE STORE.

And there are a few others that I've heard do this.

Pretty freaking stupid.... if you're gonna not let people buy something, TAKE IT DOWN ALL THE WAY, dont LEAVE it there!

I've got around 120 hours on it, the new "fixes" have made a poor game terrible...after this morning I've had it. If they've fixed the SP loading problem I'll go back and finish the campaign, then it's going up the loft so I can't put it on for a razz.
You've spent 120 hours playing a game you consider poor? That's five whole days of your life. Why would you do that?

I raged at the patch to start with, its created more problems, but I'm playing differently and although its more frustrating, in short bursts its good... Changing claymores was a mistake. Lovibg using crappy weapons... Lot of fun in killing people with a virtual pea shooter.

I cant, mine's a JP unit. The NA unit that I also had, I never used, so I gave it to my cousin. .....I thought the Namco Museum was an Arcade title though? I know it was a PSN title for PS3. I can download XBLA games and they'll work fine (but I CANT download a game that was originally on disc; found Raiden 4 on there, for download, grabbed it..... STILL region locked. They region lock DOWNLOADS. But not of XBLA games, only the retail ones).

Some games are region free so you might be OK. Namco Museum on the 360 is a disc title, it has all of Namco's XBLA games when it was released, plus lots of other Namco arcade games (albeit without any achievements".

This is a good thread for me as I've never been sure what games to pick up for the 360. Around my way it's always the same games in every shops which are always the ones that I'm not bothered about playing.

I currently own Lost Odyssey, Eternal Sonata and Blue Dragon. Are there any other RPG like games that I should look at owning?

which weirdly you can't install onto the hard drive... that was annoying as the disc keeps spinning! Good disc though... picked up for less than a fiver....

Most of that time is playing with friends, 120 hours over 6 months isn't that much, I clocked in 950+ hours on BC2 in 18 months....which is probably why I gave BF3 the benefit of the doubt....what a mistake.
