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?

There are already quite a few games in said genres.

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

    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @Sdarts: Cool.. what language did you read them in? (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: From someone who read and even listened to all The Witcher books before playing the games. The books are on par with The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Harry Potter books imho. (2 Hours ago)
