    Are any of the arcade games easy game completions? Golf: Tee It Up! seems like i could complete it and i like arcade golf games anyway, any others?

    "Commanders: Attack of the Genos" is considered a clone of Nintendo's "Advance Wars" games. 800 msp was a bit much, but I just bought it for 400 before I had finished reading the article :)

    Aces of the Galaxy might be a pickup once i cash in some Bing Rewards for points. I've looked at it before, but the price wasn't right.

    Vaguely tempted by Switchball and Commanders Genos, so will demo them both.

    On past form, the half decent games are quite often on deal of the week shortly after the drops to 400, so we shall see.

    Sealife Safari is a fun little game, reminded me a lot of Pokemon Snap which is easily one of my favourite N64 games. I'd highly recommend it, it's one of those simple little games you can just sit down and unwind to.

    I was also going to recommend Sealife Safari as an easy completion. I really enjoyed my time with it. Like another commenter said it is reminiscent of Pokemon Snap. Also, for those who haven't played Split Second, that game is fantastic. I can't recommend it enough.

    Aces of the Galaxy is AWESOME! Except for the fact that the last TU has made it broken.

    Would recommend Golf: Tee It Up
    My forum posts are probably not worth paying attention to.

    Switchball - more people should buy it. It's excellent Marble Blast like game, but with puzzles, good graphics and physics. It's really challenging to get all Gold medals too. :)

    Far Cry 2 was amazing online. Just might pick it up for old times sake.
    Apart from the fact I always got shot in the face as soon as I spawned, yeah it was great fun online
    ok ok i've got one....... whats the difference between jam and marmalade?

    Might pick up Vigilante 8, I played the shit out of the first 2 on N64 back in the day, which was a wednesday.

    Yeah, I can also really recommend Split/Second, you can propably get it cheaper in some bargain bin, but still: I paid full price back when it was released and didn't regret any of it. It's also a not to hard 1000G.

    Aces of the Galaxy - 400 MSP
    Commanders: Attack of the Genos - 400 MSPSealife Safari - 400 MSP
    Shrek-n-Roll - 400 MSP
    Switchball - 400 MSP

    Have a demo on my HDD for Vigilante 8 already.... never played it though. Hopefully at least 1 of these is an quick/easy 200. I still need to beat some more arcade games to free up some gigs.

    I don't think I recognize any of those arcade titles, so no need for me to consider spending points on them.

    hmm they're all around 3stars, just average then? Except Shrek which is rated the worst.

    Still, Sealife for some nice easy achieves and maybe Commander Genos for the TBStrat element, no Advance Wars but i might like it.

    I hope lots of people buy Switchball and only play the first level, drive that TA ratio right up!
    100 achievements on old games for 1% increase.... soon be 90% >_<
