Space Ark

Space Ark preview for XBLA 360

For a console that supposedly is only for core players who only want to play action shooters like Gears of War 3, there sure are a bucket load of colourful puzzles games available on Xbox Live Arcade. Strange as it sounds I think that it’s important to have a wide choice of games available on any system, for me a console that only has first person shooters would feel pretty dull when I’m in the mood for a platformer.

GoldenEye on Xbox live arcade

Rumours are flying around more than Jodie Marsh’s knickers about a GoldenEye remake on Xbox live arcade. There are even apparent videos of a slightly tidied-up version of the N64 classic. Whether this is true remains to be seen but I hope it is. Then I hope we’re not just viewing the game through rose-tinted specs and we ruin how good it was at the time for ourselves.

Here is some info on Xbox Live this Christmas and why some of you may have been experiencing some very annoying difficulties trying to connect to a service you’re paying for which should, given the fact that Microsoft practically owns the world, be running smoothly all the time. Personally, I couldn’t satisfy my Pro Evo 2008 addiction during a patch when I couldn’t stop winning. I tried to find a gme and no opponent could be found.
