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 ;)

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