I wish it would fill the whole screen though.

just pause during a game, and there is settings for screen size. I was able to almost spread it completly across my 55″. Looks great! I feel so 80’s! :)

the achievements seems very very easy (at least 60%)

Well Master Bates if you check out the previous article on Xbox Live Wednesdays all your questions will be answered.

Unless your question is “where is the free poker?”

yeah where is the free poker!! only joking.

I am happy that MS has finally given us some dates for some new arcade titles. My misses is starting to annoy me with just playing jewel quest now she can play frogger instead…

Wow, I downloaded it (Free Trial) on my other account (No TRIGGER M4N) and it’s hard.

I dont like it.
And I cant understand why they couldnt release it in full screen.

You can spread out the screen size pretty well. Just pause during game and there is screen size options. Its stupid they didnt make this option available before you start playing, but whatever.

this is friggin bullshit :) I haven’t bought a big ass tv to play a game at a 20inch width ffs.

Oh and I know you can make the screen wider in the menu, but you just stretch it… it’s very ugly when it’s stretched.

Fun xbox live side by side play, and fun two player game. Its fun, you dont remember the 80’s, so go back to living in the 2000’s. I feel like I have a little piece of my atari 2600 back..

Comment by Meppel on 2006-07-12 15:15:23 | Reply

YUCK
Not worth 1 penny.

its cheaper then a cheeseburger.. so why not?

I’m enjoying it, but I’m extremely irritated when I brush up the corner of a slot and die. Since I don’t tolerate failure, I end the game and fall on my sword. I have quite a few bruises from this :(

I find flicking your gonads as personal punishment for your short comings leaves less visable scars to the public allowing you to continue your day to day life without the funny looks for a bleeding torso.

thanks for the info CleanSweep :)

I played this game a lot on the Atari 2600 as a kid. One thing that annoys me of this version, is you can’t hang off the edge of logs and such. I keep accidently jump off logs to the left or right because it looks to me there is room. I was using the D pad, but I’ll have to try the analog stick. I don’t really feel comfortable with the control.

I played for 15 minutes and got four achievements worth 55 points. Some of the achievements look a little more difficult. I guess if I hunkered down, I could get them all in an hour or two.

Worth $5 IMHO.

they should put out chess. It would be simple and online chess is a good way to play.

Comment by CleanSweep on 2006-07-13 00:08:59 | Reply

C-H-E-S-S … how about Battle Chess it was on floppy disk not that long ago, can’t be that hard to port. For that matter, put a checkers and a complete classic board game section out. I would love to see a version of Boggle on Live.

I would be down for some parchesse. It’s a great drinking/b-loads game.

Battle Chess was great, I had it on the Amiga years ago.

You played chess and smiled occaisionally at the way the pieces took each other, making chess a bit more enjoyable.

I second this motion, get the Major on the line.
