I've played some of Geometry Wars, and its fantastic.  I'll probably buy the full version tonight.  I've never gotten into Bejeweled, and Hexic didn't look that great honestly.

The Arcade games look like an incredible way to blow 10 minutes at a time, what a great idea.  I ignored them on the XBox, but the 360 makes it so easy to play them.

What else is good that people have tried?  What else is coming?

I have Gauntlet and I really like Hexic HD.  I d/l Smash TV free trial and I am considering getting the full version, but I think Smash TV is only good if you play with other people like Gauntlet

Minor derail...

Scott, who won your Madden game the other day... you or Loser?  I saw you guys were playing (i think it was you two) and meant to ask earlier but forgot.  

btw - I suck worse at geometry wars than I do at PGR3 - as impossible as that may sound.

I love Mutant Storm.  Geometry Wars is also very good.

Loser won them both, bah.  The first one I had just unwrapped Madden, and was trying to figure out why my headset wasn't working, so I wasn't focused.  The second game I was winning 28-3 before I got sloppy.  I then tried to run up the score again at the end when I could have let the clock run out, but threw a pick instead and he got lucky.  Learned my lesson smile.  Let me know if you want to play sometime.  I'm not very good yet (as evidenced by losing to Devil smile ), but I really like the game so far.

Anyone bought and played the space station strategy game yet?  Looked like fun for the demo.

I love Geometry Wars. Bought it infact. I'm currently like number 20 in the world for Retro mode and #250 or so for Evolved.

Very, very tough game. But a heck of a lot of fun. Worth every penny IMHO.

Geometry Wars Evolved is great. I play that almost as much as I do PGR3.

I finally tried Mutant Storm, and it looks like a lot of fun.  I purchased Outpost, and its also very enjoyable, in a more relaxed way then Geometry Wars.  I'm spending more time with the dashboard and arcade games then Madden, and I love Madden so far.
