Want to play Lumines Live online? It's free!

It's looking like you're only going to have to pay 1200 Microsoft Points (only?) to get your Lumines multiplayer fix. Xbox 360 Fanboy got in touch with Ross Erickson from the Xbox Live Arcade and asked if multiplayer will be packed in the game when you buy it. His response: "Confirmed."

Can somebody confirm that it cost more before this bit of information was released? To my knowledge, Lumines is a pretty big game(for an arcade title) and cost more than $15 for the PSP.

ArchChef6307d ago

It costs $20 on the PSP, that is after its been out for over a year and been reduced in price greatly. I bought it when it first came out and it was well worth the money. Now with online Multiplayer and downloadable content, its well worth the price.

I truly hate stingy people. On these sites all you see is complaining about price, Quite frankly these are buisnesses not benefactors, they are looking after the bottom line.

Krimson6306d ago

This was game was always set to be priced at 1200 points, they did not increase the price.

Nodoze6307d ago

Only have to pay for multiplayer, and multi is included in the game!? So nothing is free, you have to purchase the game and both single and multi will be available.

ScorpioKyle6307d ago

they are referring to rumors earlier that stated that when you bought the game, you would have to pay extra for the multiplayer part of the game. this article is just to confirm that it is not going to pull that garbage

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake1d 4h ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga23h ago

Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way..
Tidus was so meh to me..
On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽

Rancegamerx1d 1h ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga18h ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H921h ago

Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense

GooGobbler1d 12h ago

What about that Forspoken Tw*t

MrChow66623h ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens5222h ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

gpimlott3h ago

I played through the whole game and think she is one of the worst character Ive ever played as

ravens521h ago(Edited 1h ago)

gpimlott. How?

Christopher21h ago(Edited 21h ago)

She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it.

Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.

ravens5219h ago

Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.

savedsynner17h ago

Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist

ravens526h ago

For all the people like synner. Shes actually half white lol. Inferior complexity is a hell of a thing. You'll be ok.

Nerdmaster1d 8h ago

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

-Foxtrot1d 1h ago

Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so...

People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.

Nerdmaster13h ago

No amount of "character development", (especially the ones that for me feels sudden and undeserved like Squall's), will justify him being a d**k to my girl Quistis. Even if he found the cure for cancer, from that moment on, I would never like him.
The article is about being unlikeable, and he was indeed unlikeable for at least half of the game.

BrainSyphoned1d ago

Squall is the best protagonists in FF so you can go whatever yourself.

H921h ago

My good sir, I need to steal that "you can go whatever yourself" because it's gold

BlaqMagiq11d ago

Except Squall has actual character development.
