Boom Boom Rocket for XBLA

Boom Boom Rocket for XBLA

It's a small surprise, but why not after all. Electronic Arts announced the release this spring of Boom Boom Rocket, a Xbox Live Arcade title developed by Bizarre Creations. It certainly looks like it shares a few things with Geometry Wars, but I'm certainly not complaining at all. First screen inside.

Cool. doesn't look like it plays like geometry wars. I wonder if it will be a game that we play to the beat of a song. Like elite beats or some kind of DDR.

shame it's only gonna feature a few songs of which I probably don't like one

what about Settlers of Catan, Bizarre? Although this looks quite nice, it's from EA . . ... makes me feel uneasy

besides, I cannot see that SerpentineDBol font anymore, it's heavily overused ;)

Omg.....it looks like that "great" Playstation 2 launchgame called Fantavision....:/

Looks interesting. But I refuse to support EA in any way until they discontinue their horrid business practices.

Hahaha, I was going to say that actually. Fun little game, especially if it's going to be like $5.

About the game


What's up?

    KORNdog @alimokrane: just get the samsung we keep recommending. it's honestly the best bang for buck you can get. you can get better sets, but you will pay the price. and it seem your budget isnt very high. (7 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: It's so confusing man.. I have been slaving for a week for a decent 4kt TV and I keep hitting all these little things and it's annoying lol. (17 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's all i really understand of it. seems HDR10 is what most TV's have though, so you're probably safe with that. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog a dolby featured one can still do HDR10. but it doesnt work the other way around. also dolby's goes up to 4000nits (arguably future proof but no TV supports it yet) and HDR10 goes up to 1000 nits. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: it's basically just a "brand" of HDR, HDR10 is pretty much the standard right now, and i think dolby do one too? (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane There are version of HDR? I can see some TVs have HDR 10 listed... what does that mean? (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: Sadly I have to agree. This was a big let down for me.... I like FF13 better, there I said it! (2 Hours ago)
