    Time for a 360 releases post, between the regulars of this section we have kept current on the big releases since last post so thanks to all that helped out. More happened than I thought it would so this should hopefully allow you to play catchup. No real releases for the first week of this month but after that we have the final few before the summer drought so these will be back as and when.

    Idea behind these threads

    <u><b>Nukes</b></u>
    Some nukes since last time (ABGX will lists 253).

    <b>Record.Of.Agarest.War.USA.XBOX360-CLANDESTiNE</b>
    Unknown locking, name implies US region locking as does the NFO.

    Not a great deal of information is out there. It is a strategy RPG but unlike most Japanese RPGs you do get to develop your character (indeed it is the core of the game) down the generations. I will be checking this out as I have been nicely surprised by many of the offbeat RPGs we have seen on the 360 and the developers (it is a three way joint production) have seen a fair few notable games released under their watch.

    NFO

    <b>Sherlock.Holmes.Vs.Jack.The.Ripper.USA.XBOX360-APATHY</b>
    NFO says US only region locking. PAL release was <b>Sherlock_Holmes_Versus_Jack_the_Ripper_PAL_XBOX360-STRANGE</b> back in November.
    An adventure game for the 360, got mixed/good reviews on the 360 and better ones on the PC (not sure if it is valid to compare them though). Could be worth a look if you are suffering from FPS boredom.

    NFO

    <b>2010.FIFA.World.Cup.South.Africa.PAL.MULTi3.XBOX360-DNL</b>, <b>2010.FIFA.World.Cup.South.Africa.PAL.XBOX360-LoCAL</b> and <b>2010.FIFA.World.Cup.South.Africa.USA.XBOX360-DComics</b>
    Region locked "PAL only", "PAL only" and "US and Japan only" respectively. DNL's release does not have English in it (German Italian and French) so English speaking users after a PAL compatible copy go with the LoCAL release which was English Spanish and Dutch according to the NFO.

    The tie in games for the upcoming football/soccer tournament. Currently my head is doing a rerun of all the various sports games from last year, whether it will be just a reskin of one of those but with different team names I do not know but I would place money on such a thing.

    Not well received thus far on that thread- typical film tie in being the general consensus.

    <b>Super.Street.Fighter.IV.XBOX360-MARVEL</b>
    Region free.

    Initial p2p and later scene release posted by Gaisuto here: <a href="http://gbatemp.net/t221592-super-street-fighter-iv-rf" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/t221592-super-street-fighter-iv-rf</a>

    Capcom back to their old tricks ( <a href="http://www.insertcoyne.com/sftl/timeline.html" target="_blank">http://www.insertcoyne.com/sftl/timeline.html</a> ) it seems although this is said to be the definitive release. New characters, costumes (after a fashion- some may need to be purchased), moves (selectable ultras) and stages.


    NFO


    <b>Dead_To_Rights_Retribution-DIRFIX-XBOX360-DAGGER</b> and <b>Dead_To_Rights_3_Retribution-XBOX360-DAGGER</b>
    Region free.

    A third person shooter and re imagining of the first game. Has not scored that well in reviews yet, indeed assuming they are accurate you would be better served with the new splinter cell instead to sate your third person action game desires.

    NFO


    <b>Ketsui_Kizuna_Jigoku_Tachi_Extra_JAP_XBOX360-KFC</b>
    Unknown region locking (while a few have been region free the devs said they would go region locked Japan at some point)

    The latest of the Cave shooters (you may have seen Mushihime-sama Futari,Death Smiles and Espgaluda II).


    NFO

    <b>Nier.X360-Allstars</b>
    Region free (not sure about Japan)

    It seems cavia took the lessons learned with their last non franchise third person action game Bullet Witch and made something pretty good. This year has already seen some stiff competition with the likes of Bayonetta but apparently it holds on.

    NFO

    <b>Splinter_Cell_Conviction_XBOX360-STRANGE</b>
    Region free

    p2p version initially posted by myself here: <a href="http://gbatemp.net/t220003-splinter-cell-conviction-xbox360-strange" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/t220003-splinter-cell-c...xbox360-strange</a>
    The latest in the splinter cell series and were it not for the fairly quick single player it would have been head and shoulders above the rest of the series. Not to spoil the story it follows on from the events of Double Agent but simplifies things and allows you to engage in gunplay pretty much whenever you want unlike earlier titles where it was often stealth or nothing (stealth is still preferable/"easier" though).

    NFO

    <b>Borderlands.Addon.Pack.XBOX360-MARVEL</b>
    Region free
    Posted by myself here: <a href="http://gbatemp.net/t219832-borderlands-addon-pack-xbox360-marvel" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/t219832-borderlands-add...-xbox360-marvel</a>

    This is the frequently delayed installer for the first two Borderlands expansions so everyone can use them as opposed to just JTAG users. While the third DLC (the 4th is set for release later this year) is arguably the best the first two are well worth a play through if you have a friend or two to play them with. There will probably be a GOTY release though so it might be worth holding out for that if you are going solo.


    NFO


    <b>BATMAN.ARKHAM.ASYLUM.GOTY.EDiTiON.PAL.XBOX360-SHiTONLYGERMAN</b> and <b>Batman.Arkham.Asylum.GOTY.MULTi5.PAL.XBOX360-RanGer</b>
    Looks to be PAL only, either way no proper scene release just yet.

    Batman Arkham Asylum was a well received summer game last year and this is the GOTY edition of it (Anaglyph 3d and some extra maps/challenges- basically all the DLC being the GOTY part).

    NFOs will be posted when a proper scene release appears.

    Not to alarm anyone... but Alan Wake is out in the wild. Region Free reportedly! (saw it on one site already)
