Seems interesting. Could be fun. For under $10, might as well.

What I like and have been saying since launch, is that this is a Snappable (sp) game. Something to play during all those Hulu commercials. :banana:

I'll buy even if it is just because it's a curiosity but it's not out here yet.
Does it have 1000gs?

I got it, very much like pac man. The controls seem a little bit sluggish but still found it fun to play and it was cheap.

It's F2P on PC so I tried it out over there and didn't like it. Not a bad game, but nothing special either.

PAC man meet bomberman. Its expansion of existing ideas. If its 5 € game, then maybe, anything higher, I pass.

I've found it to be a game that is fun to pass the time with, but I don't know why they even mentioned Snap, because it doesn't work wherein you can play the game in this mode.

I think that all sounds great, and I am glad they are still focused on indie titles. I do wish he would let slip some answers related to the "we have nothing to announce today" comments he keeps making....just TELL US!!!! :)

I kind of wish they kept the XBLA brand for the X1 if only because it made for a fun platform to find games on. It'd be cool if MS did a "Best of XBLA" type of collection for the X1.

I don't think they need to bring back the different sections just have a better marketplace set up.

An A-Z is definitely needed.

I miss trailers and the A-Z setup. I know sometimes they feature trailers but then they are gone after a week. Would be nice if there was an A-Z section still where everything related to a game could be found.

Not so bad with games at the moment due to the small selection but the DLC area is starting to become a bit of a mess.

I think ID@Xbox will succeed XBLA very well. It's already been a big success for the Xbox One.

I missed the trailers until I realized that you could watch clips or people playing via twitch. It sold me on Contrast. :)

And it would be if there were a separate area for ID games to be bought like the arcade. Last time i looked they were all bundled with the major titles and I'm not about to comb through every single game to stumble upon an ID game

That is what the publisher/developers wanted...to be bundled with the rest so that they were not segregated and lost potential sales. However, Phil Spencer from MS has stated they are looking at the option of "tagging" indie games so that you could find them outside of the normal game library.

Let me ask a question here. I'm not sure if this is the right place to do so.

I'm really curious and not trying to start crap, but why doesn't XBLA get credit when it came to bringing indie games into the light? PS is taking plenty of credit these days and it bugs me a bit. I played both systems and I was seeing plenty of small studio games coming on to XBLA then I ever did on PS.

XBLA and XBLIG invented indie gaming on console. But it's time to move the goal posts and pretend they didn't exist.

Cause one was MS and the other is Sony.
