I try really hard to play XBLA Indie games, but they need better ways of promoting the good ones.

Sharodan4158d ago

I usually get my indie games on PC, simply because they're easy to find. I'll have to start making a habit of checking the XBL channel.

Love the indie games, cheap and full of ideas.

MS should reward the games by giving the devs money to make a full fledged xbl arcade title remake.

Sharodan4158d ago

A grant of some sort would be nice for those indie devs that create top-notch games, but I don't think MS would do it. At least they have the Summer of Arcade and one or two other promotions for indie games through the year.

philpee24158d ago

I find that indie games are generally just not very good. Although, maybe if they got more promotion, more talented developers would move to the platform.

Sharodan4158d ago

I think it's just the needle in the haystack kind of deal. I'm sure there are lots of good ones, but they are far outnumbered by the poorly developed ones.


The Enduring Legacy of Xbox Live 1.0

Sure, there was online gaming back in the day but the modern age of online video gaming began almost twenty years ago with Xbox Live 1.0.

The origin of paid online.

Lol it definitely deserves its mention

Haha. Yep. To be fair, I feel that it was actually worth it because it kept a good minimum standard. There was horrible lag back in the day and a lot of cheating/hacking. More so than today.

PrimeVinister786d ago (Edited 786d ago )

That is arguable seeing as how good similar PC services are these days. The lack of cheaters on console is the closed ecosystem rather than extra effort by MS/Sony

"To be fair, I feel that it was actually worth it because it kept a good minimum standard. There was horrible lag back in the day and a lot of cheating/hacking. More so than today."

The horrible lag back then was due to peole not having the speeds needed to run games, peoples internet speeds were all over the place. Hacking is as bad today, if not worse than back then. People now have access to sophisticated hacking programmes that were nowhere near as prevalent as they are today. Anticheat software was also available way before Xbox Live and the paid online services became a thing.

I gamed online a lot from 1999 onwards and had great times playing without having issues with people cheating and no one had to pay for an online subscription.

Going digital with 360 and PS3 - Xbox Live Arcade vs. PlayStation Store

"We may take digital downloads on console for granted nowadays but let's go back to when they became popularised and decide which platform offered the superior service." - A.J. Maciejewski from Video Chums

Rolling the Dice: Do Modern RPGs Miss the Point of Team-Based Play?

It seems it was long time ago. A bunch of friends spending hours on end playing RPG games, sitting around the table with the box of cold pizza. Excited about the story, listening to the Game Master, they were completely engaged in the worlds only visible to them and their imaginations.

The GM is the programmer, and in MMOs and co-ops, you can play with others. If you want to ONLY use your imagination for the visuals, read a book.
