Title: #10 and #9 XBLA titles
Posted: March 05, 2007 (09:44 PM)
#10 XBLA game: Marble Blast Ultra:
Marble Blast Ultra was a pretty big hit for a while. You are a marble, and you traverse your way across stages with various obstacles to pick up the umm pick ups, I forget what they are called. Basically, the game is sorta of like Super Monkey Ball, except you control the marble and not the stage. Personally, I think the controls are a bit off, and a lot of these stages are pretty damn hard, and I never felt accomplished or anything when I finally did beat whatever it was I was trying to beat, just relieved.

But like I said, this game was a pretty big hit for a while, this was mostly thanks to it having one of the more competetive multiplayer games. It was simple, little things that gave you points appear on the map, and everyone rolls towards them to get them. However, a lot of these stages are filled with narrow passageways, and lots of stuff that make reaching the goal a pain. This really sucks in a fast paced game where you are constantly bumping into people, it got really lame sometimes. Basically, it was a bad impulse buy to do what everyone else was doing >_>.

#9: Uno
Uno is... Uno. It was a great 5 dollar buy, which has provided me with some relaxing fun with friends on occassion. However, it's mainly held back by the fact that it is just a card game. Usually I'm not in the mood for card games when I'm on my 360, I want BOOM BOOM BOOM (or if I'm playing a RPG, WALL OF TEXT, WALL OF TEXT). So, for a lot of casual gamers, I see this being a really great time, for me, it's just occasional fun. Nothing better than the "real" games I have above it.

Review Progress: I'm getting pretty far into Crackdown. I'm returning the game Thursday. SO hopefully I can get a review done before the next RotW. I also am considering doing something on Alien Hominid, though I doubt I could do anything amazing with it.

I'm slowly working on my magnum opus in between writing sexy, sexy college level essays. Watch out.

Uno ranked higher than Hexic and Smash TV?! I never would have thought.

Haha I've had a decent amount of fun with Uno, unlike Hexic and Smash TV. Gamespot actually gave Uno the title of best downloadable game of the year.

Genj- Oh man. I'm quivering in anticipation. However, I think my crackdown review will easily defeat your magnum opus, as I'm off school this week, my mind is preoccupied with nothing except the obsession to review! I cannot be stopped!
