Need non-violent game recommendations. Have Xbox 360 (never used), a badass PC, and iPad. Like pretty, detailed environments, exploration, puzzles/deduction, mystery, adventure. Dislike all but the most very mild violence, and also not very good with things that are time-sensitive (like having to do things very, very quickly or have a good reaction time to succeed). Many years ago in the mid-late '90s I enjoyed Myst/Riven, The 7th Guest, Zork Nemesis, the X-Files game, the Titanic game, and a couple other exploring worlds/figuring things out things that I can't remember the names of.

The Xbox 360 Arcade game Alan Wake's American Nightmare just went on sale, so I purchased it. I have very limited bandwidth on my Internet plan, though. I do have a demo of the game that came with an Official XBox 360 Magazine coverdisc. Usually, when I have a demo of a game all I need to do to unlock the full game is pay for it, without any additional download. There doesn't seem to be any way to install the demo from the disc to my Xbox's hard drive, though. I do have enough space.
Is there any way I can install the game demo from the disc to the harddrive? I haven't modded my Xbox in any way.

Can an XBox 360 and/or Playstation 3 be made to play archived/ripped DVDs that preserve the menu structure? Is there a guide for doing that somewhere? [more inside]

I'm still trying to connect my upcoming XBOX 360 to my computer monitor. The monitor has only VGA and DVI-D inputs and no audio output, however, so I'm having issues tracking down what needs to be done. Currently I'm fairly sure I've got what I need for video
, but I still need help figuring out how to connect audio

I'm getting an XBOX 360 shortly, but I have a few questions about setting it up. For one, my television is very bad, so I'd like to use my computer monitor for it - should picking up a VGA cable be fine?
Secondly, I'm not sure how the XBOX's audio ports are set up - can I just plug my headset with a standard headphone and microphone plug into it, or do I need adapters? [more inside]

Can you recommend any XBOX 360 (or PC/MAC/Linux for that matter) games that are more quiz / education oriented (not counting Trivial Pursuit).
Specifically, I'm thinking of games that involve things like: naming / identifying countries / capitals / rivers / mountains etc; naming / identifying species of animals or plants; anatomy / medicine type stuff; physics simulators like Phun. [more inside]

I intend to make this weekend a gaming weekend. I haven't played video games in a long time. At least not as seriously as I used to. Do you have any suggestions? [more inside]

How do I get an RSS feed of games played for an XBox360 GamerTag? In the past, certain Yahoo Pipes offered this, but they now all seem broken.

I want to play Bully: Scholarship Edition
on my Xbox 360. There was just a patch released for the game, but my console is not hooked up to the internet and never will be. How (and when) can I know that the physical copy of the game I buy is a post-patch version?
