Editorial: Actually Try Before You Buy

By  •  Features

Often when looking to buy a game I look up not only critic reviews, but comments from everyday users like you and me.  We all do it.  While the critics can give an overall “point scale” view of the game, it’s often family, friends, and even common folks on the internet who sway me one way or another on my purchase.  That’s why XBLAFans reviews games as though it’s a recommendation from a friend; we want you to know whether to buy, try, or skip it.

Still, there’s one thing that bothers me: when people don’t actually demo a game.  On the one hand there’s the age-old comment “I tried it for like two minutes and shut it off. The game sucks”.   On the other hand there’s the “Dude, I really wish I’d tried the demo first.  I’m out 800MSP and there’s no refunds on this crappy game!”   So what’s a person to do? The answer is simple: actually try the demo or trial.  Spend more than a few minutes in the game, and for heaven sakes, don’t make your buy or skip decision based on no-to-little time with the trial.

XBLAFans 15 Must Own Games

By  •  Features

Xbox Live Arcade has come a long way since its launch on the original Xbox a little over 6 years ago. Back then the selection of games was in the teens but now there are hundreds of games on the service. You can play anything from 16-bit classics like Streets of Rage 2 to exceptional original titles like Shadow Complex.

With so many games to choose from it’s hard to know what to spend your good ‘ol Microsoft Points on. Lucky for you however we at XBLAFans have taken it upon ourselves to compile a list of the 15 XBLA games you must own. The games featured (listed alphabetically because they’re just too good to rank on quality) are the best of the best. If you haven’t played a game on this list then you owe it to yourself to at least download the trial (which we’ve handily linked to) and give it a go.

So let’s get on with it shall we, below you’ll find the games we decided on and brief summaries from our writer explaining why they’re deserving of the term “must own”. If you agree or disagree with the list, or just want to comment in general please feel free to do so. Read More
