This is out tomorrow?! <faints>

I've ben keeping tabs on this one....oh HELL yeah!! BOUGHT!!

It looks fun, let's hope it plays as good as that video. Small Arms looked good until I played it, not to say it sucks completely, but definitely not worth 800 points (10 bucks).

So if they are charging 800 for this, it better deliver.

compared to Steam who would charge 20$+ for this kind of games including Roboblitz the arcade Devs are giving great deals.

What, because $10 is breaking the bank? Last time I checked, $20 was considered a low-budget game. This is half that.

Anyways, this looks awesome. Even if it's not perfect, I'm sure it'll still be a lot of fun.

The graphics arent that great. A couple of friends and I have achieved way better results with OpenGL on PC, however, I dont care about graphics as gameplay is King, and I will buy this game. Also, the recent success of games in XBLA has me pumped to create a game for it. I just need to find the time and the right people. It is either an internship or working on an indie game for next summer. I hate making such decisions....

OMG, THE VEHICLES LEAVE TRACKS FROM WHERE THE VEHICLES HAVE GONE! OMG, MOTORSTORM, WATCH OUT!1!!!!11!

Oh, and... i cant wait for this, as well as Mad Tracks. The arcade is getting a nice, steady supply of games now, its great.

Roboblitz is the same price on Steam as it is on XBLA.

I don't know if I would call them deals, but most of the arcade software is fairly priced. Lumines should have come with the advance pack, is all, even if it cost more in doing so. Oh, and Doom is totally not priced correctly--and the demo should have been the same as the shareware, not one level.

This looks good though. I wish all of the good XBLA games weren't basically the same genre though. They all owe a good deal of their control to Robotron, and we've got plenty of Robotron-likes on the arcade already.
Commented on 2006-12-13 00:18:29
I assume this will have an online multiplayer mode/ or co-op?--multi would seal the deal for me.
Commented on 2006-12-13 00:33:21
Yes, there's 2 player co-op. Both online and offline.
Commented on 2006-12-13 00:45:54
So basically it's Geometry Wars with 10x the gameplay, for only 2x the price. Definately worth 10 bucks.
Commented on 2006-12-13 04:49:12
Might have to get this one.
Commented on 2006-12-13 05:45:01
im gunna have to check this one out....

Live Arcade titles are not low budget games, they are WAY BELOW low budget.

Wow not bad I immediately saw the name before and overlooked it but impressive.
Commented on 2006-12-13 11:14:07

Not really these are the same low budget dev teams that you see on low budget titles and don't compare the bargain bin versions of big budget titles, since that is not the same.

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (1 Day ago)
