    Trials or Pinball FX 2 tables or Shadow Complex

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Trials, shadow complex or 3 episodes of the walking dead.

    From dust is a good shout too, a very interesting game but not for all.

    Or save them and put them towards minecraft...

    Can I buy the girl in your avatar for 1200 MS points?

    I would say Fez, Braid, Trials, can't go wrong with any of those.

    This. +1000. It's a great game and easily worth 5. I mean go arcade all you like but it's a cracking game.

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

    Thanks everyone. I have Shadow Complex, so that's out. Also, have Metro 2033 on PC, so that's out, too. Besides, I don't know if I can use points to buy items with a real-world monetary price (I mean, instead of listing the price in points). Does anyone know if I can?

    Also, I have Trials for the PC, but I suffer from the steep learning curve, too. Deadlight, Spelunky, and From Dust are all good suggestions I think. I don't know about Mark of the Ninja - I'll have to read a review first.

    Thanks again!

    Trials is on 360 is a lot easier to get into than Trials 2 on PC, and easier in general.

    @cyber_nicco
    From Dust is fantastic, but it's been in lots of sales already. I'd suggest waiting for it to reappear at a discount, unless you absolutely must spend those points now. In which case, my own suggestion would be to get Fez and spend the change on indie games.

    Also, there's a "Use Microsoft Points" option before you confirm the order for things priced in real money. Not looking at the screen now so can't quite remember where it appears (I'm pretty sure it's the same screen as the one with "confirm order" on it, so watch what you're pressing).

    That's something to think about. I love the early bits and the concept...

    You know what, I haven't felt that interested in that and I'm sure it's just because I don't really understand what it is. I mean, I know it's supposed to be good, but I keep hearing it's more of an interactive adventure, which makes me think of old-school point and click stuff.

    I should go read some reviews...

    I need to confess - I bought Saints Row 2 on sale for 800 points a little while ago. I'd never played it before, but enjoyed the first one a bit, so I thought it was a good deal.

    So, now, the thread topic should be "What Should I Spend my 400 MS Points On?"

    Definitely this if you don't already have it. 400 for Ikaruga is a complete steal.

    @lucky_jim - Indeed it is. Still, for 400 points he has to at least try the first episode of The Walking Dead...

    Don't think of it as a point and click, but more of a (brilliant) interactive story

    I forgot to thank you, lucky_jim. I did figure it out a little prior to your message, but it's nice when someone takes the time to answer a question like that.

    Trials....every time Trials.

    Preferably Trials Evolution, but Trials HD is great too. It's better than most full price games!

    Is pretty crap. Very generic. Awful voice work.

    There's definitely better games out there on XBLA.

    I'd vote Trials, Limbo or Resi Evil 4 HD is 960 points this week.

    A question - how do you find the Sales & Specials Scratch And Win thingy? It's never appeared where it should for me. Microsoft say on their website it should be under the Sales and Specials tab, but don't see it.
