Commanders on Xbox Live Arcade

Commanders on Xbox Live Arcade

Discs of Tron was last week announced as this week's game to be released on Xbox Live Arcade, but here is another one. Sierra Online and Southend Interactive launch Commanders: Attack of the Genos, a turn-based strategy game with support for up to 4 players on Xbox Live. The game will cost 800p, and more information and screenshots can be found inside.

This looks pretty cool, but I find myself wondering what happened to the 400 Point games, I think I expect more for my 800 points these days (since rez! - even if it was a port)

I really don't get all this. Basically there never was any 'original' gamesfor 400 points, sure, there were some exceptions, but 800 points have always been the main price point for these sort of games. 400 points is most used for old retro crap, and Disc of Tron is heading our way on Wednesday so be sure to pick it up if you really wanna experience 400p priced games.

The 400pts games are pretty much gone since enough people eat up this crappy prices.

Yes quite, 400 pt games have got the reputation as being crappy, so people have avoided releasing games at that price break. 800pts is getting very nearly a standard now.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Not sure if they've improved much these days. (42 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A lot of Japanese made games were guilty of that whenever voice acting become possible. I mean, aye, it was always cheese, but you tolerated it more back then (43 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The voice acting was always regarded as pure cheese. (45 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, and the voice acting, something which back then, was great. Today it's just pure cheese. Sound design is often neglected to be mentioned over visuals when talking about progress in games. (45 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX This is what Shenmue combat looks like. It's not heavily based on QTE despite the game making QTE a buzzword: [url] (46 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah a lot of it was very clunky. It did often boil down to QTE's to resolve "disputes" and chases, if I recall correctly. Mad how a lot of games to this day still do that. (47 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Still one of the better parts of the game. And it's not a bad game, but it's definitely a "good for its time" game.. which means.. maybe not actually good :D (48 minutes ago)
