Images of 3D Ultra Minigolf

Microsoft announced a few hours ago that this week we would get not one but two XBLA releases: The classic Gyruss from Konami for 400 points, and the quite nice 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures from Sierra. Images of the latter in the news.

If they get this right it could be majorly fun. I think what would be really awesome is a minigolf game that let you design your own courses and then play them on xbox live.

I just wish Microsoft would diversify their games more.

How much more diverse than MINIGOLF do you need?

this is gorgeous for an XBLA game. MS is doing a good job.

On a side not i think Table Tennis should be remade for XBLA. 20 bux. It didnt do well in retail cos the game didnt have enough offerings, even tho it was a great ping pong and sports game in general.

I think it's kinda ugly personally (mini golf). Table Tennis wouldn't work as an XBLA game -- it'd be far too large for their standards. It's a great game though, and it can be picked up at retail for probably as much if you look for a good deal on it.

But yeah, I don't think this looks great for an arcade game personally.. looks cheap and the art direction is a total mess. Not really commenting on the gameplay though, and the idea of a mini-golf game could be interesting..

About the game


What's up?

    droezelke @Sdarts: It's more character studies. But that doesn't mean there is no story. I love it. Waiting for season 2 to release in Belgium. (47 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: indeed. The show is about questions, not answers. How people handle a life changing event. That is the story. The acting is just perfect. But it's not for everyone. (51 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @jmd749: I loved every video of Vermintide that I saw, haven't had the chance to play it yet, but definitely plan to do so in the future. The combat and the animations look superb, and the game fun. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: The Leftovers is an excellent series, but only for those who are more interested in the characters and the acting than the story and answers. Otherwise, the series is very boring. (1 Hour ago)

    aphex187 @jmd749: Think i'll get that pay day then :) (4 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 Just played 13hrs straight of Vermintide. Super fun game, I highly recommend to all especially L4D players. :) (9 Hours ago)
