Novadrome up on Xbox Live Arcade

Novadrome up on Xbox Live Arcade

Stainless Games had the honour to be this week's Xbox Live Arcade hosts, releasing their Carmageddon-like Novadrome for 800p. For you that have the console on repair, or just don't want to spend your precious bandwith on the demo, here are some images from the game.

The game looks fun, but after playing it it wasn't that fun anymore.

Didn't like it. Felt like a game in the alpha stage of development.

I see. I haven't played it. Just pointing out the fact that there's a reason for the quote that has nothing to do with gameplay. Carmageddon was all about running people over and the car physics. I would hope it at least has the car physics down?

I didn't think the physics were anything special. At least they could have gotten that right. And for as simple as the graphics are, I'd expect 60fps. Nope.

Try it out though, it's free.

Er, I know who it is made by. This doesn't change the fact that the game plays nothing nor looks nothing like carmageddon does.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (8 Hours ago)
