Xbox Live Arcade this week

Xbox Live Arcade this week

The Arcade scene gets interesting this week, with the release of the big title Battlestar Galactica and Taitos game Exit. The latter is released on PSP and got pretty good review scores, while the former is very much online based. Images of both titles can be found inside.

I'm gay for Galactica so I foresee a purchase however good/bad it is. They incorporated the Newtonian physics from what I have seen so at least we can pull the awesome strafing manouevers

Might be getting exit. I'll at least try the demo.The battle star galactica game though...no i don't think so. Never liked space combat much.

Next looks pretty cool, it's like what i'd imagine a vector based game that is not flash would look like :P

According the Exit's Xbox.com page it states Exit has 120 levels, instead of 220 as you can read in the above quotation from the press release. Seems more right and accurate with the PSP version, that had about that amount of stages, in mind. Just a heads-up.

When are we going to get Undertow? That game was reviewed by OXM in August but we have yet to receive it. It may be the best XBLA game we receive since it scored a 9.0.

220 levels actually puts me off, I want less!! I think its after playing portal I have fallen for short games in a big way.

What's up?

    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (11 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (11 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (11 Hours ago)
