    Welcome back to the 360 releases posts, most of the big 360 releases have been covered by Thug4L1f3 or myself in one off posts but a roundup was needed so here it is. Homebrew, xbox live arcade and DLC also saw some stuff happen.

    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-->

    Two new nukes since last time (ABGX lists 245).
    Nuked for "m0.compression_get.repack" which means little to the end user (just a bigger file to download), repack in the form of <b>Dynasty_Warriors_Strikeforce_REPACK_NTSC_XBOX360-HIGHRISE</b>

    Over in DLC world:
    "not.working_console.indicates.dlc.is.corrupted", repack in the form of <b>Borderlands.Zombie.Island.of.Dr.Ned.PROPER.REPACK.DLC.XBOX360-FYK</b>

    <u><b>Less notable releases</b></u>
    A few since last post, mainly Japanese region dupes of games from last year.

    Region locked Japan only (the other releases were region free) the NFO is not especially helpful but I guess this release features Japanese language. In other borderlands news a disc release of the first two DLC addons for it should be appearing within the next few days.

    <b>Eat_Lead_JPN_XBOX360-Caravan</b> and <b>Eat_Lead_RARFiX_JPN_XBOX360-Caravan</b>
    Japanese release of Eat Lead Return Of Matt Hazard and the a rar fix for it. The previous release was region free and made about this time last year.

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

    FYK and a couple of other groups 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.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    Homebrew continues to get better and we also saw a shift back to homebrew proper with some game ports and emulator releases.
    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:

    Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce (PAL)
    Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing with Banjo-Kazooie (RF)
    Dead Rising (NTSC/J (Excludes China)/NTSC/U)
    Aliens vs. Predator (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.

    Happily I was wrong last time and we did see a few releases including a few releases some days ahead of time.

    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:

    Region locked US only.

    Mixed opinions of this one thus far in the gbatemp thread <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=210287" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=210287</a> that Thug4L1f3 posted. It seems modern warfare 2 from last year is going to be the game of choice to <strike>clone</strike> pay homage to. For many it is all about the multiplayer but this time around appears to feature a single player campaign too.


    Region locked US only (PAL only in release in <b>Dynasty_Warriors_Strikeforce_PAL_XBOX360-iCON</b>, Korean release in <b>Shin_Sangoku_Musou_Multi_Raid_Special_KOR_XBOX360-CLARE</b> and Japan release in <b>Shin_Sangoku_Musou_Multi_Raid_Special_JAP_XBOX360-KFC</b>)

    The first release from new group HIGHRISE. Their first pack of this game <b>Dynasty_Warriors_Strikeforce_NTSC_XBOX360-HIGHRISE</b> was nuked for m0 compression (no compression) but that will not trouble the resulting game.
    A review, it looks like it suffered a bit in the transition to online but the game at the core is the same as the ones before it <a href="http://www.gamerevolution.com/review/xbox360/dynasty-warriors-strikeforce" target="_blank">http://www.gamerevolution.com/review/xbox3...ors-strikeforce</a>

    NFO (repack and original)

    Region free.

    Thug4L1f3 posted word of the release here <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=210150" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=210150</a> . Word is it is not all that bad and I guess if you were on the lookout for a "younger family members" type game you could do worse, how well it will hold up as a drunken party game remains to be seen.

    The NFO seemed to have that double space problem we saw the other day but I sorted it.

    Region locked PAL and Japan only. No word of a US release.

    A sequel to a driving game of the simulation variety that hit in late June last year and made a reasonable impression when it did, since then we have seen heavyweights Forza and Need for Speed among others release new games in their respective franchises. I guess we get to see whether it was the summer games drought or the game itself with the sequel.


    Region free

    Lips- it is a karaoke game. Tracklist stolen from wikipedia in the spoiler section so I will leave you to pass judgement on such a thing

    Region locked US only.

    I posted about this <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=209772" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=209772</a> . The game itself is a silent hill clone of sorts although the game can not even get a good IGN review which is remarkably telling. To that end you are probably better off tracking down a copy of Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem on the gamecube if you like this sort of thing or waiting a few months and seeing how "I Am Alive" turns out.

    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>

    <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.
