What do you think of their list?
Assault Heros needs to be on that list... Great online co-op play!
In my not so humble opinion
...should be first.
...definitely in my top 10!
Can't believe it's not in the top 5, MBU was fantastic and is still my number one.
5. Assault Heroes 4. Hexic 3. Mad Tracks 2. Geometry Wars 1. Worms/Small Arms (Tie) (So, I guess it's really a top 6) ;)
is the only one that matters. and assault heroes.
assult heroes does not work right online thats the only reason i left it out
I am amazed they could find 2 games worth putting in a top 5 never mind the so called five games. The whole xbox live downloadable content is pants!! Expect people to pay for retro games from 20 years ago to play on suppose next generation hardware. Its bad enough having to pay £40 to £50 for a game,Especially when it turnes out to be a pile of dog pooh!..Then to add insult to injury they expect you to pay for extra content like maps or game modes or stupid costumes and whatever.
Plus £40 a year for XBL. People say that isn't a lot, but times that by 5 to 10 years and that's 5-10 games you could have bought, so basically you're losing a game a year for a service which is shockingly free on every other platform. It won't be every platform for long now though as MS have decided you have to pay to get basic online features on PC games thanks to games for Windows Live. Just another way MS are screwing things up in the name of their wallets :)
Thats like saying your paying for CABLE and add it up for about 5 years, thats like loosing a couple of Pay-Per-View movies you could of watched, that's just nonsense. Your better off watching local channels if you want to save money.. Either way this is still a service and it is business, I mean you can't think of it that way. How about all the fun (becasue of all the options that XBL provides) over that 5 year period you might have. People tend to look at the negatives, anyhow like they say "you get, what you pay for". I have not purchased much Arcade games, well really, I have been spending more money on the Wii's VC games, ofcourse a much better selection.
you dont have to pay to get basic online features on pc games you idiot. you have to pay to play against xbox360 owners... The silver service provided for pc users, allows pc users to compete against each other with all the benefits of the live service...Just thought you should know, might stop you lookin so foolish next time. Its terrible what fanboys can indoctrinate people with..
But it's the fact that online PC gaming has been free practically since it's birth. With the introduction of Live, you can still play online for free, but you have to pay the £40 a year for a simple quickplay button in Shadowrun and Halo 2. It's that kind of thing which bugs me. There's no reason anyone should have to pay for that, seeing as devs have included that in the game for aeons without going "uhhh yeah you have to pay coz' like it was effort". Paying for something which has always been free is just not right and fair. MS would argue that it can be justified because PC and 360 players can now play against one another... who gives a hoot?? Console gaming and PC gaming have been fine being separate for the last 2 generations, and infact whenever I go on XBL all I get is either kids of jackasses swearing all the time - yeah like I want to be able to play against those people. All this is is another money pit. Btw, nice name, KewlKat!
I'm not sure what MS is trying to pull with the Windows Live for games option. Since most PC gamers are used to being able to match up and play games for free, so why would they wanna pay just to play Xbox users? I'm not sure what the incentive is? Then again, if you already have XBL account on the console you can use the same Gamertag on Live Windows community. But for the PC gamers tha tmight not care to play cross-platform, they might not buy into the whole Live for windows thingy. See this whole cross-platform thing is new...so we'll have to see.
Missing two: Aegis Wing (fun multiplayer) I thought Eets was pretty good, as well.
Alien Hominid! come on you guys and soon will be Castle Crashers. Geometry wars is coo too along with POP
Castle Crashers should be fantastic, thats the one XBLA that I'm actually highly anticipating
ZeroAlarm Everything he says is true so get with the program and understand what he is actually talking about. The new map pack for gears of war was going to be free as far as gearbox was concerned but Microsoft was having none of it. To some people £40 a year is not much money but its the principle,How long do you think £40 a year will stay as it is before the price increases.I remember when sky tv was free when it first arrived and now i am paying £60 a month to watch tv which has constant repeats. Think about all the content on xbox live and all the 400 and 800 points to download stuff which should be free in the first place. Why would i want to download some retro game from 20 years ago that i used to play on my Nintendo nes or Sega Mega drive. This is next generation hardware here and i for one am not interested in the crap that Microsoft and Sony are trying to get us to pay for. I want next generation games with mind blowing visuals and mind blowing game play,Thats what i paid my money for. I could not give a hoot about transfering photo and listening to mp3,If i want to listen to music i will use my ipod like every body else thats into music,If i want to look at pictures i will use the pc. If you want us to pay for downloadable content and you want to keep going down the retro route then give us game that are decent from the past and not tripe. Give us Goldeneye and make it multiplayer and it will make you a even bigger and Richer than you are already. Give us the Atari Jaguar classic Tempest 2000,Give us Blastcorps from the days of the Nintendo 64. There are many classic retro games out there that are much better than the rubbish on there at present. Many a deal can be done with the developer i am quite sure of this,Why dont they talk with sega and may be they could release radiant silver gun or many other sega classics from the past. What i think it is and i am not been funny here is a age gap thing and the different generation of gamers. This is probebly why some people think that whats on offer in the style of so called retro downloads are really cool. Now if your in you early twenties this is understandable,But if your in your forties like me its boring...Been there done that worn the teashirt. Did you buy your xbox360 and Playstation 3 to play retro games from 20 years ago,come on they are not even decent retro games and they expect you to pay for them.If i want to play retro then i get the Atari Jaguar,Nintendo nes,Nintendo snes,Nintendon64 ,Sega mega drive ,Sega saturn out the loft and i would have saved myself the best part of £1000 .
