EA Sports boss Peter Moore has announced plans to build on the success of downloadable ice hockey game 3 on 3 Arcade with an American football game in the same vein.
Madden Arcade is on the way this autumn, Moore told folks on the latest EA financial call (thanks GameSpot), although he didn't elaborate other than to say it would be a digital download title.
With that in mind, PS3 and Xbox 360's download services seem like a safe bet. 3 on 3 Arcade went for $10 or 800 Microsoft Points (£6.80 / 9.60), so that would seem a safe bet on that front too, although nothing is confirmed just yet.
Bubble Bobble Neo feels quite a bit different from Bubble Bobble Plus. The bubbles are easier to pop and the jumping seems faster (Gravity seems a bit stronger)
The game also has a nice visual polish that I thought was a bit lacking in the Wii version.
Edit: Just went back to the Wii version to compare, yep the 360 version is much better. Its much faster (The Wii version feels like a snail in comparison) and feels much more polished, definately the one to get!
Rating summary: This is a trivia game in which players answer multiple-choice questions about the rules and history of soccer. Players must answer questions as quickly as possible to earn more points than their opponents.
*sigh* I've been through this. I haven't played them all. I don't have a digital camera but I did take some pictures a couple of months ago to show that I had all Live Arcade games to someone else who looked on that site so I'll just post them again:
This was just before I stopped buying every single game. The picture was taken on March 4th, this year. At 200, I started being a tiny bit more frugal because of really high priced ripoffs like Watchmen. I also don't have any of the Family Game Night games. FYI, I went to "Full Games" because this view doesn't show games you only have demos for.
:lol I'm sorry, I wasn't accusing you or anything. I actually figured it was possible they weren't listed because you had bought, but never played them. Man. You should really try to find the time to play some of them before buying more. But I'm sure you've heard that too.
No idea what the DLC for the Wii version was, but there's a lot of content here. All 100 original levels (for the 2p mode) + 100 new ones (for the 4p-mode). There's also a 4p versus mode that I haven't tried.
Wat? Seriously? No online multiplayer for Bubble Bobble? That makes this game a questionable buy.
August 5, 2009 - Today independent developer Sarbakan announced it has struck a deal with Microsoft to create an original Xbox Live Arcade game for release in early 2010. It's not ready to give us a name or any specifics for the game, but Sarbakan says it will "take advantage of all of the cutting edge social features present on the Xbox 360 console."
This mysterious XBLA game should be officially announced soon. When IGN knows more, you will, too.
Is that right? Man, all they need is to get Jungle King/Hunt remade along with (!) Elevator Action (and, no, I hope it's not Returns...that game is overrated like Golden Axe Revenge of Death Adder is, IMO). Might as well go for broke and add in a real Rastan (first game, plz) remake along with Cadash. SE has been riding the Taito train hard and I'm not ashamed to say that I like it.
That's terrible. I'll still buy it because I love the games and have wished for Bubble Bobble on XBLA ever since I bought a 360. But my friends won't get it without online multiplayer. So that's -3 sales for the game and I can only imagine that's a likely story for thousands of people.
