    <!--sizeo:5--><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Introduction</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->
    A quick catch up on the releases, all the big releases have been posted about by fellow forum members hence the long delay since last post (the last post was also updated with the region free release of Bioshock 2 so it will not be appearing here). Homebrew has a few interesting things.

    Idea behind these threads

    <!--sizeo:5--><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Nukes and related news as well as less notable releases.</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->

    <u><b>Nukes</b></u>
    Two new nukes since last time (ABGX lists 243).

    <b>Guitar.Hero.Van.Halen.XBOX360-WARG</b>
    Nuked for being a dupe, official nuke reason "dupe.RRoD.2009-10-11"

    <b>BioShock.2-NTSC-XBOX360-TAMPAX</b>
    Official reason "dupe.PARADISO.2010-02-06"
    Similarly BioShock_2_PROPER_READNFO_USA_RF-XBOX360-RRoD may get a nuke as BioShock.2.RF.ENG.ES.FR.XBOX360-PARADISO was region free.

    <u><b>Less notable releases</b></u>
    One odd release, a few dupes and everything else makes the main post.
    <b>Dantes.Inferno.PROPER.PAL.MULTI3.XBOX360-RoME</b>
    RoME have propered GNTG as the GNTG was apparently SSv1, this is a new one and I have not seen any updated scene rules reflecting it (whether it comes under safe for use with the latest iextreme or something similar). Also it could be SSv1 from a pre 1.6 0800 firmware which depending on the person speaking may be just as safe (SSv1 kreon being the bad one for new games, more .
    Long story short nobody has nuked GNTG that I can see and by similar token it should be possible to inject SSv2 sectors for the paranoid. More on the various versions of SS here:

    <b>Dantes_Inferno_JPN_XBOX360-Caravan</b>
    Japanese release of Dantes Inferno.

    <b>Sacred_2_JPN_XBOX360-Caravan</b>
    Japanese release of Sacred 2 (those looking for a 360 diablo/baldur's gate like game this is about as good as you will get, the PC version is considered a better game though)
    <a href="http://www.ludibria.com/nfo.php?sys=x36&sysid=2680" target="_blank">ludibria.com NFO link</a>

    <b>BioShock_2_PROPER_READNFO_USA_RF-XBOX360-RRoD</b> and <b>Bioshock_2_KOR_XBOX360-CLARE</b>
    Dupe release and Korean release of Bioshock 2, the NFO for the Korean release says Korean subs which you can make of what you want.

    While our policy on not following the "dox" divisions of the 360 releases that carefully there were a few game guides:
    Mass.Effect.2.Official.Game.Guide.XBOX360.PC-Unleashed
    The.Saboteur.Official.Game.Guide.XBOX360.PS3.PC-Unleashed
    Lego.Indiana.Jones.2.The.Adventure.Continues.Official.Game.Guide.XBOX360.PS3.WII
    PC-Unleashed
    Left.4.Dead.2.Official.Game.Guide.XBOX360.PC-Unleashed
    Dark.Void.Official.Game.Guide.XBOX360.PS3.PC-Unleashed
    Army.of.Two.The.40th.Day.Official.Game.Guide.XBOX360.PS3-Unleashed



    <b>XBLA games and DLC content</b>

    FYK continued their flood of XBLA and DLC content, naturally you need a homebrew capable 360 to run all this.
    Due to the flood NFOs will not be linked up <a href="http://www.ludibria.com/index.php?sys=x36" target="_blank">http://www.ludibria.com/index.php?sys=x36</a> (better yet <a href="http://www.ludibria.com/index.php?sys=x36&ord=1" target="_blank">http://www.ludibria.com/index.php?sys=x36&ord=1</a> ) has them all though if you fancy searching.

    <b>Darwinia_Plus_XBLA_XBOX360-XBLAplus</b>

    No NFO on ludibria just yet but we have you covered here

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    <u><b>Homebrew</b></u>

    Not quite as much homebrew news as previous posts but some interesting stuff none the less.
    Homebrew news


    <u><b>Game updates</b></u>
    With the live bans it seems a big need for game updates "offline" appeared and many sites/groups rose to the challenge. This means we have a new section in the 360 releases posts for them. Demos are not really going to be covered.

    General info on (offline) game updates

    <a href="http://xboxupdates.24.tl/" target="_blank">http://xboxupdates.24.tl/</a> added (TU=title update):
    game updates list
    <b>Additions to ABGX360</b><u></u>
    We suggest you use the link below and the abgx360 tool as the site does not use scene naming meaning it can be quite hard to tell entries apart, this is just for reference really (RF= region free)
    ABGX360 ( <a href="http://abgx360.net/verified.php" target="_blank">Web frontend to verified database</a> ) added:

    BioShock 2 (RF)
    Dante's Inferno (RF)

    <!--sizeo:5--><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Releases</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->

    Release dates can be found here: <a href="http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/" target="_blank">http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/</a> although the dates on gamefaqs seem to be slightly "off" and as usual are subject to change at the last moment.

    Unless the borderlands addon pack appears (first two DLC titles bundled) then I do not expect anything to hit shops until March aside from Deadly Premonition in the US (looks to be a silent hill clone of some form) and Espgaluda II in Japan (a shooter from Cave who are known for making good shooters), Risen was region free when it hit Europe last year.
    As an aside if possible the NFOs are being sent as unicode/some encoding that will not lose the format if possible which means we may not lose the ASCII art any more (I am far too lazy to make up picture NFOs not to mention I like text), for old ones perhaps <a href="http://shailendra88.blogspot.com/2009/02/how-to-view-nfo-files-in-firefox.html" target="_blank">http://shailendra88.blogspot.com/2009/02/h...in-firefox.html</a> is of some use.

    For the new members the general layout of each game here is
    Scene release name (in bold)
    Region locking information (rebooter apps can dodge region protection but they are far from available to all so such things are staying)
    In previous posts wave information (if known) which is not necessary now everything can run every known game and as such will not be appearing any more.
    A short writeup of the game (who made developed/published it, past history of the franchise, if I or one of mine has played it then a quick review). We invite others to comment on games and they frequently do so read their replies as there are many games/genres/franchises and so on I do not care for.
    NFO in spoilers and codebox.

    In order of most recent to pre:

    <b>Dynasty_Warriors_Strikeforce_PAL_XBOX360-iCON</b>
    Region locked PAL only.

    iCON return to the 360 for the first time in several months with a release of Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce which features co-op albeit online only otherwise you know the score- one overpowered character, several hundred enemies, kill the lot of them.

    NFO

    <b>Aliens.vs.Predator.PAL.XBOX360-SWAG</b>
    Region free.

    Thug4L1f3 kindly posted this up here <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=208465" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=208465</a> , the game is a sequel to an older game and based on the film series of the same name. It has not got a great reception thus far, for most this game is all about the multiplayer, the link has a bit of discussion on the game.

    NFO

    <b>World_Of_Outlaws_Sprint_Cars_USA_XBOX360-ZRY</b>
    Unknown region locking.

    I checked a gameplay video when I saw this release and it did not impress, the developers Big Ant Studios are not new but they have little to their name and what they have made has not done well <a href="http://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/big-ant-studios-pty-ltd/" target="_blank">http://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/big-...tudios-pty-ltd/</a>


    NFO

    <!--sizeo:5--><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><!--/sizeo--><b>Useful things to know</b><!--sizec--></span><!--/sizec-->

    This section aims to serve as quick intro to things that are often assumed elsewhere in these threads, it is never going to be a definitive guide so do not consider it as such.

    First the current WIP GBAtemp 360 FAQ (not the same one that is stickied), it should cover most questions you might have on the 360 although it too is looking a bit out of date right now:
    <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=157263" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=157263</a>
    For drive hacking related questions the jungleflasher tutorial is probably the most up to date guide:
    <a href="http://jungleflasher.net/downloads.html" target="_blank">http://jungleflasher.net/downloads.html</a>

    <b>XBOX360.Release.Standards.2007.v1.340</b>
    <a href="http://pix.gbatemp.net/32303/XBOX360.Release.Standards.2007.v1.340.png" target="_blank"><img src="http://pix.gbatemp.net/32303/XBOX360.Release.Standards.2007.v1.340.png.tn.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" /></a>
    Click on the image and it will load up the full picture.
    Some sections of the scene also use the general console release standards as well as the 360 ones. Realistically it is only the problems with the isos that you need to be worried about and even then some can be fixed (simple things like no/bad .dvd file) but we will leave it up to you to determine what you consider acceptable.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    <b>Previous 360 release threads</b>
    The follow links are to the older release threads, if there is some time between threads anything that happened between threads will be covered.

    Thanks quepaso, I was staring at it in the pre channel and still somehow forgot to add it to the post. Sorted now though.

    Not enough for a new post but the RE5 DLC Armadillo spoke of pre'd a few hours ago. Update: I mistakenly thought the soon to be released gold edition contained the DLC but I was wrong, that only applies to the PS3 version. Looks like it is homebrew capable machines only.

    Anyhow:

    <b>Resident.Evil.5.Lost.In.Nightmares.DLC.XBOX360-FYK</b>

    For the others reading this is a sidestory that was show in flashbacks in the original RE5 with Chris and Jill, I am not sure where I stand when it comes to spoilers so I will say no more.

    No idea why the NFO floating is as it is (I guess someone ran a unix to windows new line thing somewhere along the line and ended up double spacing it). I tried to clean it up a bit to give you what you have there.
    NFO


    <b>Resident.Evil.5.Extra.Figures.DLC.XBOX360-FYK</b>
    NFO

    <b>Resident.Evil.5.Costume.Pack.1.DLC.XBOX360-FYK</b>

    Yay [​IMG]. Also it's DLC only for the 360. The gold edition doesn't have it on the disc, it comes with a code to download the extra stuff. Only ps3 version has it on the disc.

    Well that is unfortunate. This DLC only model that seems to have appeared for a few games does not sit with me.

    Get used to it. If you play microsofts system, rape is part of the xbox experience.
