    Bought Fez, Mark of the Ninja, Dust: An Elysian Tale and The Walking Dead 1-5 from XBLA during the sales over Christmas. Looks like I picked up some good'uns

    I uhm'd and aah'd about Trials Evo, and whilst I appreciate it's a really good game I don't see myself playing it for long just like Trials HD which I bought a while ago, so I skipped it despite the cut price

    Great list though
