    Update: Bioshock 2 region free appeared. Main post edited.

    We have had a few more games released so another thread appears, War posted about Bioshock 2 here <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=207318" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=207318</a> so you can read about it there if you want, homebrew also saw some somewhat interesting developments.

    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 241).

    <b>Chime.READNFO.XBLA.XBOX360-FYK</b>
    bad.pack_game.not.unlocked_get.repack , name of the repack is <b>Chime.READNFO.REPACK.XBLA.XBOX360-FYK</b> or you could just unlock it yourself with one of the many tools floating around or even by hand.

    <b>Dantes.Inferno.Uncut.German.PAL.XBOX360-GNTG</b>
    Nuked for "1.file.corrupted_get.repack" , repack goes by <b>Dantes.Inferno.Uncut.German.REPACK.PAL.XBOX360-GNTG</b>

    <u><b>Less notable releases</b></u>
    Just the one region dupe, everything else makes the main post.
    <b>Dantes.Inferno.Uncut.German.REPACK.PAL.XBOX360-GNTG</b>
    See nuke notes above, new group to the 360 GNTG released a German version of Dante's Inferno. Uncut probably just means it dodged some of the somewhat more harsh German censorship.

    <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.

    <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:

    MX vs. ATV Reflex (PAL)
    Blood Bowl (NTSC/U)
    Konami Classics: Volume 1 (NTSC/U)

    <!--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.
    Bioshock 2 is region locked so the US version is still to come, otherwise nothing (gamefaqs says the Medal of Honor reboot hits Europe on the 12th but nothing else does- indeed everything else says it is a autumn/winter release).

    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>Blood_Bowl_NTSC-XBOX360-RRoD</b>
    Region locked US only according to the NFO but region free according to ABGX, either way the European release happened back on the 25th of November last year as <b>Blood.Bowl-PAL-XBOX360-DAGGER</b>

    Based on a games workshop (they who make warhammer and warhammer 40K) franchise of the same name it is a turn based game (there is a real time mode as well) using warhammer races to play a simplified version of American football (with a few extras). It did not meet with great reviews on the 360 owing to stripped down gameplay (it was a PC port which did not fare well either).

    NFO

    <b>Midnight.Club.Los.Angeles.Complete.Edition.PAL.XBOX360-VATOS</b>
    Unknown region locking, PAL source.

    Complete edition= game of the year edition by any other name. Includes all the various downloadable content for the game (mainly the south central map expansion although a few game skins as well).
    The original game did fairly well back in 2008 when it was reviewed but the time since then has seen many heavy hitters of the racing genre appear.

    NFO

    <b>BioShock.2.PAL.XBOX360-DNL</b> and <b>BioShock.2.RF.ENG.ES.FR.XBOX360-PARADISO</b>
    DNL Region locked PAL only, paradiso release is region free.

    Sequel to the very well received 2007 title Bioshock (itself a "spiritual successor" to system shock). GBAtemp thread here <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=207318" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=207318</a>
    Bioshock 2 is an FPS title and expands on the first by placing the player as a prototype big daddy although one with abilities similar to the character in the first game. I have not played the first game so I will leave it to others to elaborate on the game.

    NFO for DNL release

    NFO for PARADiSO release

    <b>MX.vs.ATV.Reflex.PAL.MULTi5.X360-UNLiMiTED</b>
    Unknown region locking. (US release was region free)

    The newest in the MX vs ATV series, I played the US release back whenever it hit and while it is a good game the deformable terrain aspect seems to have had an impact on the level size (still big just not ones that take 5 or more minutes to cross at full pelt) which does not sit all that well with me. Still it makes for a great party and younger siblings type of game.

    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.
