Xbox Live Value Cards - get your Xbox Live Value Cards!

As the Xbox 360 nears the end of this generation, it is still being supported by an extremely robust offering of games. The great thing about the Live Arcade is the sheer number of amazing games, an aspect that is too often missed out on! We at Play-Asia.com thought we'd have a change of pace from the big titles, and the even bigger headlines that follow, and highlight some of the games that are totally worth any gamer's time and purchase!

Battleblock Theatre: A super fun, and surprisingly complex, platformer developed by The Behemoth (Castle Crashers, anyone?). The story is pretty damn interesting, but what keeps that controller in your hand is the gameplay. The singleplayer mode is great by itself but the multiplayer is simply amazing to waste time with. 

Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara: What do you get when you combine two amazing Capcom titles? An incredible arcade game to add to the collection. Developed by Iron Galaxy Studios, Chronicles of Mystara is definitely worthy of being a part of the D&D franchise, a statement which speaks for itself.

Farcry 3: Blood Dragon: Don't be fooled, it is built on the same engine as Far Cry 3 (Dunia Engine 2) but it is an entirely different experience. It is so over the top, and so ridiculously fun this satirical display of all things 80's action movies (cyborgs, eye-patches, and big explosions). A solid shooter, with a great theme - Ubisoft Montreal took a good game and made just enough tweaks to create an equally fun experience.

Ducktales Remastered: You might need a decent dose of nostalgia to fully enjoy this game (Ducktales, woohoo!) but regardless of your birthday this title doesn't disappoint when it comes to fun gameplay. Another platformer that is simple and fun, with just enough complexity that you won't get bored right away. 

Terraria: Super popular on the PC, and equally fun on the Xbox, Terraria is really a sandbox sidescroller that is hundreds of times more expansive than you would expect at first glance. Continuing the theme of 'gameplay first, and graphics to facilitate it', the heartbeat of the indie developer, Terraria is continuosly updated by Re-Logic making your purchase worth it over and over again.
