I bought Braid off the Xbox Live Arcade last night, and I'm really enjoying it. The puzzles have been really cool and well arranged. I also really like the reverse time mechanic. The art and soundtrack are top notch as well. An absolute steal for 10 bucks

Sleeping Dogs is turning out to be far better than I gave it credit for.

Cool, looks like I will be getting BF3 for free (SimCity). I also just realized that my internet got buffed by 100% sometime in the last few days. I'm now downloading at about 5mb/s

I'm also getting a new video card: Radeon 7850 1gb

I have a Radeon 5770, so it should be about twice as fast. I hear that some can OC to 7870 level without modifying the voltage.

aliens colonial marines

it's pretty cool. If you go in with tempered expectations, knowing that this game was made with dated technology it helps. It's still not a finished product, glitchy, bad transitions etc.
The aliens should have been stronger, it felt more like starship troopers sometimes. Sometimes your dude will do an instant kill and jam his pistol into the mouth of an alien cap his head off which was a nice touch.

I'm playing Fez and it's amazing, Xbox Live Arcade is an excellent place for finding awesome under the radar games

Hell yes, XBLA is awesome. There are a whole assortment of great games on there. I'd even go as far to say that some of the best games Ive played this gen were through the arcade.

Some of my favorites would be: Limbo, The Walking Dead, Half Minute Hero, Dust: An Elysian Tail and Braid (which i finished yesterday, it was so good)

I tried the demo of Fez a little while back but I didnt really get into it. Maybe I'll give it another chance.
