    Arcade games on xbox live are some of my favorite games to play, so I'll start off by listing some of the ones I've felt worthy of buying or at least trying. Don't forget, there are almost ALWAYS free trials of these games.

    LIMBO - My absolute favorite. Dark, gloomy and you're left to wonder.
    Deathspank - Super fun little hack and slash RPG/action.
    Deathspank: T.O.V. - Even more super fun hacking and slashing RPG/action.
    MicroBot - You're a little spaceship inside the human body, nice music and all around fun, one of my favs.
    Castle Crashers - Another awesome hack and slash RPG/action game. Awesome music and online co-op too.
    Plants-vs-Zombies - A tower defense like game that's really fun, with all the new extra's recently added to the PC ver.
    ilomilo - A puzzle game that's cheery and not too hard, all around fun to play.
    Geometry Wars Evolved² - Lots of pretty colors, cool music and quick action fun.
    Aegis Wing - A fun shooter with online co-op and best of all it's completely free.
    Costume Quest - Another fun little RPG, a bit short but still entertaining. Add-on available too.
    The Undergarden - Another fun and peaceful puzzle game. The colors and atmosphere are really nice.
    Hard Corps: Uprising - A prequal to Contra, this game can be damn hard without a partner but it's still really fun.

    Funny you mentioned that as I d/led the trial 2 days ago and got my ass beat. It's probably more fun/easier with a friend though and the OST is awesome. I managed to get the full rip of it.

    all you have to do is play through the same level a few times and buy the best strength upgrade. after that is smooth lol. Just like river city ransom lol.

    Ok, gave Hard Corps: Uprising a chance and it's pretty damn fun, but suggested that you have a partner for this one. It's quite challenging.

    Or do what I do: Muscle your way through the first four levels on pure grit and hot-bloodedness (and the code to use the Power of True Love Sword in every stage). Then keep spamming the Subspace room at the beginning of the fifth stage to pay off the debt at the video store in the first stage and max your character's stats for a ridiculously low amount of money.

    Though admittedly, trying to fight Lucas Lee with a low-level character will probably make you hate life for a while.

    Anyone excited about the arcade co-op BattleBlock Theater? Same creators as Castle Crashers; TheBehemoth.

    The opening is so awesome, you can't not at least slightly grin!
    Release - TBA
