Sweet. If games like these continue to be made for XBLA I'll probably end up broke!

is so good to see microsoft supporting its Ideas so strongly..Its amazing how they say somthing and they actually creating it to be solid real.. When I first heard of the Live Arcade i thought it was just another promise like the rest of the companies.. SONY "Network Play" Nintendo Gamecube "Online Play" ..I mean yes those companies had it as well but it wasnt as supported and taken cared of like Microsoft does it with its Online Options right now.. Its great to see a carzy idea being formed into reality like the live arcade and not staying in the back of our heads like the rest of the companies do..

game looks great! so excited that alien hominid is coming the XBLA... i always wanted to play the gamecube version but thought it was a little overpriced.. both these games will be on my HD the second they come out :)

OH WOW! Alien Hominid started out as a Flash game on Newgrounds and was Bohemoth's first official console release. It worked a treat. Dad N Me, also a flash game on Newgrounds, was probably the best 3D scrolling brawler since Streets of Rage.

This is going to ROCK!

If they keep releasing awesome games for the Xbox live arcade, I'm going to need a bigger hard drive.
Commented on 2006-07-20 17:06:24
Yeah, Clonning Clyde is excelllent, if retro games like this are released regurlarly on XBL Arcade with old classics eg. Sonic, Track & Field..

I will be so happy.. if this game has XBL Co-Op.. **Drools**
Commented on 2006-07-20 17:36:00
ahh man this looks soo cool!!
Commented on 2006-07-20 18:04:16
This looks like a proper 2D beat em up! It reminds me of D&D in the arcades. Like another poster said, if it has XBL coop I'm going to need a drool bucket...
Commented on 2006-07-20 18:12:19
Yeah Co-op would be so cool! Can't wait to get my hands on this..
Commented on 2006-07-20 18:29:14
SWeet. This might be the first arcade game ima buy.
Commented on 2006-07-20 18:54:18

Commented on 2006-07-20 19:01:10

    Melmoth @Tiz: Most big games were larger than what a standard CD-ROM disc could store, so it wasn't unusual that pirated games were lacking audio tracks or movies. (5 Hours ago)

    Melmoth @Tiz: Sega used a proprietary GD-ROM format (about 1GB discs) for storage. It did not stop piracy though as you with a bootdisc could start cd-r copies without the need to hard mod the console. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (8 Hours ago)
