Is it a mini game or a visual thingy for the music player on Xbox 360?

It is a game in minigame in project gotham racing 3. PGR2 had geometry wars when you went into the garage and walked around you could find it and play it.

Now this is what I call a good-looking game. :D Geometry Wars (Retro Evolved) would be an Xbox Live Arcade hit.

For those who haven't played the original:

You "fly" with your little craft using the left analog stick. But it isn't a nice walk in the park -- nor a steady flight in outer space --, since after a few seconds the screen will be full of enemies -- err ... enemy shapes :) -- that come after you and dodge and do all the crazy stuff. So put the thumb of your right hand on the right analog stick and start shooting; you can shoot at any direction by moving the stick. When things get a bit too hectic you can use a smart bomb and clear the whole screen. After awhile you get weapon upgrades and more bombs, too, but believe me, Geometry Wars isn't an easy game. Collecting points can be really hard if you want to rise to the top in the Live rankings.

I can just imagine this on my 32" HDTV.

It's gonna be an eye-gasm...

I think GeoWars is one of the most well conceived, playable, and genius arcade games ever created. I really cannot wait for this followup because I'm sure the gameplay will remain in its pristine condition and the visuals look like they will be absolutely stunning in all their high-res glory.

Every time I think of PGR3, I think of the most jaw-dropping software experience in the near future. Then I think of this, and my brain explodes.

Have I seen this idea been used before? Surely not... But still, it looks good and fun.

About the game

    droezelke @KORNdog: Not true about Sense8. Sense8 was actually a succes, confirmed by the Vice Pres of Netflix. Just looked that up to be sure :-) (31 minutes ago)

    KORNdog Typo central, but you get the point, (45 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Espectially when they can just tune into one of the 100 other netflix shows they enjoy. Its a service for fickle people...and gonestly i'm one of them. Lol. (45 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: true, viewers simply don't care. They wern't warching sense8 to really give a shit about its cancellation. (46 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: I understand that in short term thinking. But viewers don't think that way. (49 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Especially since it didnt have great viewing figures and wasn't bringing new people into the netflix fold. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: tbh glow is probably a lot cheaper to produce than sense8 which was 9 million per episode. I think keeping that going, as good as it was, would cause them to bleed out quicker (1 Hour ago)
