I hope to keep this list current.  What essentially this is; is a list of cards that you can find on Ebay, Live subscription renewals, or other promotional means that will enable you to download a certain game off of XBOX Live Arcade.  Very cool because if you enjoy the game you can get it for cheaper than what you would spend on points.  All of these cards can be found on occasion for sale on Ebay as well in case you don't have a need for extra Live months or you aren't part of a certain promotion.

List:
AstroPop(XBOX Live Arcade Stick pack by Mad Catz) (if anybody has an extra card let me know)
Bankshot Billiards 2(3 month Live renewal ??)
Contra (Given away as part of the Old Spice Achievement promotion)
Frogger(XBOX Live Arcade Stick pack by Mad Catz)
Joust(1 month Live renewal ??)
Robotron 2084(12 month Live Renewal)
Time Pilot(XBOX Live Arcade Stick pack by Mad Catz)
Uno (12 month Live Renewal)

p.s. for those who don't know; Arcade Unplugged Volume 1 includes the following:

- Geometry Wars Evolved
- Bejeweled 2 Deluxe
- Wik: Fable of Souls
- Hardwood Backgammon
- Outpost Kaloki X
- Texas Hold’em


This is significant because you can usually get a brand new copy of Arcade Unplugged (which includes the month add-on to Live) for ~$20 off Ebay.  The equivalent of what you would spend for Bejeweled & Texas Hold Em by themselves.  Feel to free to clarify anything here and add info and I will keep it in the first message for everybody to enjoy. 

Update: The new Xbox 360 Arcade Unit comes with a disc that has five XBLA titles on it:

- Pac-Man Championship Edition
- Luxor 2
- Uno
- Boom Boom Rocket
- Feeding Frenzy

I was able to procure the Xbox 360 Arcade compilation disc for under $20 ($19.25 s/h included) off Ebay.  If anybody is interested in getting the disc, Ebay (do a search for xbox live arcade, 3-5 for this disc should show up at any given time) will probably be about it.  But at least the price is in the $20 range now.  It was fetching about $35 a month ago.

Yep Yep  Grin, I just hope it isn't something stupid or something I already have.  The last free game was Carcassonne which I still play from time to time.  Something like Arkadian Warriors would be nice.

Unless its UNO or TMNT: Arcade, I don't have it so that leaves a lot of options.

Even if the games not all that good, I'll still milk it for achievements.

I really want that Rez HD when it hits, and I wish they would announce the damn free game already.

Oh and last night I figure I would be a little achievement whore and get some Yaris ones since its a free game.  That game is so terrible, I can't play it enough to earn any of its acheivements.

Haha, yeah I downloaded Yaris as well, then after reading all the reviews...I couldn't bring myself to play it.

Easy XBLA Achievement Games that I have played:

Galaga
Carcassonne
Uno
Puzzle Quest (takes some time though but not too hard)
Bomberman Live (except for the Girl Power achievement which I still need)
Dig-Dug (except for the dig achievement)

If you do, hit me up....I'll get you what I can, and perhaps we can convince a couple of others for the girl achievement.  (If I'm on during the weekday, it's mostly likely my girlfriend, she's also plays bomberman and will help)

It will be *unveils*:

Undertow (color me interested but not overly).  Able to be downloaded from Wednesday the 23rd of January up until Sunday, the 27th of January.  Enjoy.

I tried the demo, and it was okay, but I dunno, maybe it will be cooler playing online.
