    Yup. Microsoft needs to get their Live Arcade in order. As much as I dislike the pricing and direct port nature of the Wii VC, it's completely kicking Microsoft's ass in terms of content. Microsoft has some major studios who are producing games for Live Arcade, Konami, Capcom, and Midway. It's unacceptable to think that they can't scrape together 1 lousy release a week. And shit like Tapper and Paperboy don't cut it.

    Double Dragon, Castlevania and Worms are what I am looking forward to. After that I haven't seen much of anything to hold my interest.

    It's the game that Rare is working on for XBLA. It's supposedly an updated version of Jetpac.

    I'm afraid I agree with you. Live Arcade is an excellent delivery system and has had a handful of hits, but the process of actually getting shit on there wasn't designed for rapid releases. There are good reasons for all the checks and certifications, and some of them are outside Microsoft's control, but they mean dick to the gamer that looks for new content every day and doesn't find it.

    Yup.

    I want to give them my money. I want to buy stuff on XBLA. I don't want to buy stuff for $5 that I got for pennies in a compilation within the last couple years (I'm looking at you Midway). That is why I am excited for games like Double Dragon, SOTN and Worms. I don't own those games any longer, and in the case of Double Dragon, there has never been an arcade perfect port.

    I just discovered that the spectrum classic "Jetpac" is coming to XBLA in the guise of "Jetpac Refuelled".

    I almost pooped my pants with joy :D

    I was considering buying a 360 just to download SOTN, but thankfully it got annoucned for the PSP later this year and I do have my PSP laying around collecting dust! Buying something I didn't need FTW!

    In case anyone doesn't know, Space Giraffe is an unofficial sequel to Tempest! I'm psyched for it.
