    Hopefully it will still be the 16th by the time I press post. No posts in the last few days as not a great deal has happened assuming you are not a fan of Lips and p2p releases can pass you by. A couple of nukes and wave4 being official, we have a thread in this forum section ( <a href="" target="_blank"></a> ) and in a post over at <a href="" target="_blank"></a> Kushan summarises it rather nicely (it is on the link I just gave/frontpage of the site).
    Good news is Borderlands is wave 3 (and region free), p2p only release for now but that will not change when the scene release appears. GBAtemp thread on the subject: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

    edit: ooh yeah 1 minute to go by my clock.

    edit 2:Update: Way of the Samurai 3 just got nuked for the same reason as the other PROTOCOL release of the evening.

    edit 3: apparently MS are cracking down on users of the prereleases of Forza 3 in the form of live suspensions. Gaisuto has more in his thread: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

    These threads have been going on for a while (even longer if you count that they happened in previous years as well) but the general idea is in each post the days (or time since last post if nothing much happens on a given day) summarises the state of the 360 scene, it is done in the subforum as GBAtemp is mainly geared to towards the GBA and current Nintendo consoles but there are a substantial amount of 'tempers familiar with other consoles as well who discuss such things on the 'temp.
    We cover big releases (a short writeup, release name, region locking information and NFO), the smaller releases (those without English in are usually covered here although we will cover a big Japanese release on the rare occasions one happens), any nuke information and likewise any confirmed games added to the 360 game verification tool ABGX360 as well as any homebrew news.
    We tend to avoid covering the P2P game releases as they are not especially reliable when they beat the scene to releasing (previous years have seen several big releases made ahead of street dates which were later found to not be up to scratch) and afterwards there is not much point, this being said if any are of note they will be mentioned in passing.
    If you have any suggestions for the format of the post or things we should add please chime in, if you want to help out in the coming months when things get really busy (we are sure you have all seen at least one summer games drought followed by a packed autumn/winter release schedule which is usually made even worse by being able to move in these circles) we are recruiting people to help post these up.

    useful things to know
    <!--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-->

    Nukes, two new nukes (ABGX now lists 197*). *it will say 196 if you are reading this shortly after I press send as the text database does not regenerate all the time.

    <i>update</i>: that will read 198 soon enough as <b>Way_Of_The_Samurai_3_USA_XBOX360-PROTOCOL</b> got nuked just before I pressed send.

    <b>WWE_SmackDown_vs_RAW_2010_USA_RF_XBOX360-PROTOCOL</b>- nuked for anydvd style corruption.
    Official reason "contains.anydvd.corruption_pastebin.com_m3743529a", this is true do not download reason people (and a rare one at that; we do not see this very often and have not seen it often in recent times) rather than the scene rules sort of thing we usually see. Personally I am happy as it means I can not work on my scathing remarks for the genre overnight, PROTOCOL are usually fairly good so I do not know what happened here.
    It was nuked only a couple of hours after release (pre was about 9:30pm and the nuke came just past 11pm UK time) so I doubt it would have spread far. It will not be getting a mention in this main post unless a proper appear in a sensible amount of time after this post.

    <b>Way_Of_The_Samurai_3_USA_XBOX360-PROTOCOL</b>- nuked for anydvd style corruption
    Official reason: "contains.anydvd.corruption_pastebin.com_f24a5e106", I am guessing PROTOCOL's ripper of choice today was having a bit of an off day. While they have not been the most active of groups their releases have been fairly solid so keep it up guys.

    Old post from before it was nuked:
    Hopefully redeeming themselves a bit for that nuke (I should not imagine too many people will be all that cut up about the lack of a wrestling game) PROTOCOL also bring us a 360 port of a fairly well received PS3 game (31 in Famitsu) a few days ahead of time. Others were not so kind but having not played it I am not going to comment, from previews/reviews it appears to aim more for Jade Empire style gameplay than ninja gaiden and will probably suffer for it in the eyes of the fans of the latter. I am reminded somewhat of Ronin Blade on the PS1 (soul of the samurai in the US if memory serves) although I doubt it will be as unpleasant as playing a swordfighting game with a distinctly resident evil 1 engine and controls right down to the fixed camera angles.

    <b>L.Era.Glaciale.3.PAL.ITALIAN.XBOX360-RoME</b>- grp.req_get.repack
    No word other than by group request (nothing in NFOs), repack name is <b>L.Era.Glaciale.3.PAL.REPACK.ITALIAN.XBOX360-RoME</b>
    <a href="" target="_blank">Link to NFO at (for the repack)</a>


    Nothing new on homebrew but as before it is probably worth checking out as it has been a few days now since hacks were released for the slightly later models and some more discussion has been had on the subject.

    <u><b>Less notable releases</b></u>

    <b>Fallout.3.GOTY.PAL.ITALIAN.XBOX360-RoME</b>- 2 discs, unknown region locking. The Italians appear to be the first to have the game of the year edition of fallout 3 from the scene. The GOTY edition should contain the original game as well as the 5 downloadable addons for those without live or live points to spend on them. I am unsure how the discs will break down (as in will both be needed right away)

    <b>UFC_2009_Undisputed_JPN_XBOX360-Caravan</b>- Unknown region locking. Japanese version of UFC_2009, I have not played such a title since the early days of the PS2 so I will refrain from comment here.

    Again we will not make it a habit to relay what passes for a "dox" division on the consoles but as we are already doing it some more guides appeared:

    <b>Additions to ABGX360</b>
    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
    ABGX360 ( <a href="" target="_blank">Web frontend to verified database</a> ) added:
    MagnaCarta II (Disc 2) PAL and MagnaCarta II (Disc 1) PAL (at present there has only been one scene release and this would be it)
    Dancing Stage Universe PAL
    Cabela's African Safari RF
    Brutal Legend RF
    Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection 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="" target="_blank"></a> although the dates on gamefaqs seem to be slightly "off".
    As usual these posts will be back as and when something happens, we sight see a few more early releases and region dupes over the weekend.

    First a p2p release of borderlands- a local co-op supporting FPS/RPG hybrid with a nice graphics style, "lots" of guns and what my first impressions are inclined to say may be the deus ex of this generation (words I do not utter lightly). It verifies as well as it can under ABGX360, being p2p it has many names available to it but Borderlands.RF.XBOX360 seems to be the one of choice.

    There may have been a handful of other p2p releases but as noted we do not report on them unless really noteworthy.

    Region free.

    MS is back with their take on the wannabe musician genre but without the pretence of what might possibly decent music instead opting for the music to slit your wrists to soundtrack

    Tracklist in spoiler section.... mutters unkind words about Austria.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Why are nuke releases becoming so frequent?

    I am not sure we are seeing any more nuke releases than "before" and even if the number has stayed the same then the reasons are usually scene rules (bad NFO, directory naming) or dupes (be they "accidental" or intentional) rather than "technical"/bad dump reasons (ignoring the occasional bad pack, p2p repack or bad spread). Todays two big nukes can quite easily be explained by the same ripper having a troubles courtesy of anydvd as well.

    A quick scan of the last few months on the DS says we have also seen more than a few nukes there as well (not that they tend to get reported*), same for wii (even more if you truly account for the long list of propers), PSP is slightly better but only just.

    *I am guessing this might be a reason, a twist on gambler's memory:
