My gfs brother bought her DJ hero as a gift.

Its pretty cool, actually the game is as good as the song your playing. Some songs are awesome and some are utter shit.

Also been playing Dead Space, WOW that is an incredible game. Kind of got lost in the shuffle when it came out a year ago. I'm glad to have given it a chance of late.

Very excited for the next Dead Space... but I will disown the entire medium of video games if they fuck it up.

I never played one single X-Com game...

Are they dated. Are they still playable. What type of game are they? And if i decided to start with one of them, which one should it be?

Play the first one. It's a strategy horror game where you have to research the enemies you fight and take what you learn and use it against them. You have a squad (which have names to make you attached to them), I played it recently and still felt bad when they died through my actions.

Some good deals just went live on XBLA:

Trials HD was 1200 now 560
Marvel vs Capcom 2 was 1200 now 560
TMNT Turtles in Time HD was 800 now 400

This is officially 'buy Splosion Man if you haven't already' week.

My gf and I play Splosion man Co-op, and be warned: its frustratingly difficult. The difficulty curve goes from 0-100 VERY fast.

Its definitely worth that price tag, and could be a bit easier solo.

I might pick up trials hd, but I have already sunk 2 hours playing the demo alone. So im kind of afraid that if I buy the full version I will spend 50+ pointless hours obssesively playing 4 levels until perfection. Im normally not a game perfectionist, but something about that title in particular really makes me go compulsively insane and hate myself.

I did cringe for you when I saw that. I've done it myself before.
