    Think the XBLA release schedule is a task that was devolved to a machine, without human oversight, some time ago. To show Microsoft's dedication to the the XBLA and XBLIG channels.

    I'm not seeing the demo of Monaco. Has it been removed?

    To those who are crushingly disappointed at the disappearance of Monaco, don't worry.

    There's always Double Dragon 2! MS wouldn't want some shitty Monaco crap robbing sales from the beat'em'up 'masterpiece'.

    Motocross Madness is quite good, once you level the bikes up to S class it's almost Wipeoutish in the speed.  You unlock loads of permanent upgrades as you level up like more tricks, increased boost, and stuff.  It's definitely worth a go at 800 points but it does really need more tracks in dlc, and I haven't been able to find an online game, which is probably not a good sign.

    @muttler I tried the demo of it but it kept crashing the Xbox which needed reset at the mains so decided not to bother. If they've fixed that then I'll give it a go later.

    Just bought Castlevania for 320 points. I used to wonder at people who had a games backlog. I've now got deus ex, dragon's dogma and this after I finish sleeping dogs. I don't recall another time when quality games were so cheap.

    @Siobheon it gave me some gyp too when I downloaded the demo, and the first time I played the full version, but it's been fine since,  I don't know if it's been patched though.

    Any advice on what I should buy with just over 600 points? Was gifted 800 and bought the peggle dlc. Now I'm not sure what to do with the leftovers.

    I was going to get Tony Hawks but the demo gave the impression it has aged badly. Also tempted by that turn based WW2 strategy game (panzer something?) or the dlc for Hydro Thunder?

    Any other recommendations? I could save them to see what else appears in the sale, or could buy a few more and get Monaco, but I don't play on the Xbox too much any more and my Xbox live runs out soon (so no multiplayer games).

    I read bad things about the Tony Hawk's game so it might be worth giving that a miss. You'd be better buying a pre-owned copy of Skate on Amazon.

    You can buy very small amounts of points from the GAME website - perhaps you could put a few towards 'Skulls of Shogun'?

    I'm not sure as to how much it costs on Live, but I recently finished 'Mark of the Ninja' on Steam and loved every second of it.

    For me XBLA is back on top form after a really crappy few months.

    Been loving Poker Night 2, and Battleblock is a genuinely fantastic 2d platformer that nails every important genre mechanic perfectly.

    And now Blood Dragon, which looks like it could be amazing fun!

    Its weird really. Its obviously still THPS, but the physics feel a bit off, which affects the classic playability far more than you'd think.

    In short, from an old school THPS fan, it's a bit pointless.

    Incase anyone is interested the Pinball FX2 Star Wars tables are currently half price at 400 points. Deal is on until 6th May.

    @Alipan cheers for that. Are they any good? It's been a while since I played fx2.

    It's worth it alone for the ESB table.

    Interesting rumour about next xbox :

    Microsoft Xbox Next “Durango” is expected to be architecturally similar to the PlayStation 4. It is believed that the future Xbox will be powered by AMD Fusion custom-designed system-on-chip with eight x86 low-power/low-cost Jaguar cores, AMD Radeon HD graphics with GCN architecture as well as 8GB of DDR3 system memory.
    Microsoft is projected to install Xbox 360 core-logic into the new console to maintain backwards compatibility with current games.

    If so that would be a big plus to me. Bought around 90 XBLA games.

    I don't currently have a Gold account - I'm guessing that's why I can't see the reduced prices on the dashboard?

    Could I get the reduced prices for Scott Pilgrim, Joe Danger and Pac-Man DX if I was to get hold of a 48-hour code?

    In the past you had to have at least a month of Gold to qualify as a full member and have access to Gold features like Deal of the Week.

    Damn straight. I liked it so much I went and got it for my iPad too!

    It's a shame I'm terrible at it though but I can't stop playing it on either that or my Xbox.

    I get that Snoop Doggy Dogg bought a copy, and there are probably 100 giveaway free keys for reviewers and friends of the developers but I don't understand why there is one person who actually bought it.
