What is the point of commenting on these pics? no seriously do the makers of this site want my opinion or something else? I think they do want an opinion, just like all the other comments you're seeing on this page, so dont get cute with me smart-ass...

tatami and fusuma and zabuton with an armrest...very classy. where's my cha-wan cup of tea? wonder who's responsible for the AI of shogi. oh, and don't try shogi right in the middle of a Japanese garden. Japanese garden is usually for seeing from inside the room, not for going in unless you're a gardener. :)

What kind of people actually spend money on this crap?

Anything less than Bionic Commando is unworthy.

Assault Heroes for 400 points. hmm I have to think about it.
Commented on 2008-03-18 01:06:55
Is there a reason why there's a Rocky and Bullwinkle game on XBLA? Is it some tie-in to some movie that I don't know about, or are they going to bring the TV show to Video Marketplace?

The trivia game looks like it could be fun.

Nice a Shogi Arcade game!

What I would like to see on Xbox arcade is TMNT: Turtles in time. I had fun playing that when it was in the arcades and I liked the snes version. Another game I would love to see and is the best 2 player side scroller out there… Contra 3. Yes it was a Nintendo game but damn it would be worth any cost to be able to play that online with a friend... Yes I could get a wii but I don't think you can play the old games online like that.

Ugh, Turtles in Time. I tried playing that a couple months ago and I have to admit, the beat 'em all is SOOOO over.

It would take a ten ton shot of adrenaline and a pound of meth to revitalize that genre.

There are good beat'm ups. Turtles just isn't one of them. Konami's 90's arcade games all have aged quite poorly. Castle Crashers on the other hand.. DO WANT.

I forgot about that Castle Crashers game; it does look pretty fun.
Also, AvP Arcade is still pretty shizzy after all these years, with all its guns and acid splat.

Guess I spoke too soon.

Capcom had some good ones. Their D&D games are (still) awesome too.

Castle Crashers... give it!

My god, it all looks terrible, when will microsoft realise that XBLA is not a casual games platform, the people who can be bothered to get their xbox connected to the internet and go hunting for games are probably hardcore gamers, the people who get casual games I would imagine just go and do an impulse purchase in a normal retail store rather than dig through geeky internet things.

No doubt there is reems of data to prove me wrong, I just would rathe we were seeing something of value instead of this gack.

You couldn't be more wrong. MS have said that several times that the want a piece of the huge cake that is casual gaming, and XBLA is their foremost advance in getting this. Get used to it, these 'crap' games are here to stay.

And if I may add, there are quite a few gems in there for those who actually bother to look through the list.
