New Rally-X will be the next Live Arcade game released on Xbox Live Marketplace, probably wednesday. The game first came out in 1981 using the Pac-Man hardware and was produced by Namco.
This sort of stuff isn't good enough for me, I at least want a muli-player (via live) version of micro machines or something similar. like the one MS have planned (can't remember what it's called.)
I think you mean Mad Tracks.
When I look at that screenshot I can't think of any good reason why to buy such a game. Graphics isn't the only thing, but a Pac-Man engine? Why would anybody want that while we can produce games with the Unreal 3 engine for instance?!
...and I've been wanting that game for a long time now. I was originally releasing back in the early summer, but without online play. They decided to add online, and release it later...hopefully by the end of the year.
You have gotten most of the hits from the old arcade, move onto better XBLA stuff. I wanna see more XNA developed stuff, and next gen arcade titles, these ports pretty much blow.
I love my Joust and Dig Dug, because those are the old quarter-eaters I played when I was younger. But I don't recall even seeing Rally-X in an arcade...don't think I would've played it if I had. Now if they were to do Q-bert and Crystal Castles, I'd be giddy as a school girl...but otherwise, I'm ready for more new stuff, that makes use of the 360 hardware and LIVE.
...some of the ports are worth buying, or at least messing with the Trial version for a bit, but Rally-X?!? Seriously? Wow, come on, we all know there are better old-school games than Rally-X... Balloon Fight anyone?
they is waiting to ps3 drop to roll out the next gen arcade games to match there
They've been putting up a lot of crappy Arcade games lately.
Where's the stuff like:
Bad Dudes vs Dragon Ninja
Step it up, MSFT!
will pass on this one, although i have enjoyed alot of the previous ones, this game never got me excited .... im waiting on track and field, hopefully with multiplayer support over live, that will rule!!!!!! (my thumb and fingers already hurt just thinking about that game)....
