re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

I'm loving my new 360, with Live, Netflix I have more content at my fingertips than I've had in years. I added Tversity for Hulu last night and am loving the potential. I think I need to upgrade my computer though to make the Tversity run a little smoother. I can't believe I held off so long on this.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

Kotaku has broken down the initial 30 with a little more talk: http://kotaku.com/5442810/the-first-...-new-game-room

1. Centipede (arcade)
2. Asteroids Deluxe (arcade)
3. Tempest (arcade)
4. Crystal Castles (arcade)
5. Lunar Lander (arcade)
6. Jungler (arcade)
7. Road Fighter (arcade)
8. Scramble (arcade)
9. Finalizer (arcade)
10. Tutankham (arcade)
11. Shao-Lin's Road (arcade)
12. Super Cobra (arcade)
13. Red Baron (arcade)
14. Gravitar (arcade)
15. Battlantlis
16. Astrosmash (Intellivision)
17. Mountain Madness Super Pro Skiing (Intellivision)
18. Armor Battle (Intellivision)
19. Space Hawk (Intellivision)
20. Sub Hunt (Intellivision)
21. Sea Battle (Intellivision)
22. Space Armada (Intellivision)
23. Astrosmash (Intellivision)
24. Star Raiders (Atari 2600)
25. Outlaw (Atari 2600)
26. Yar's Revenge (Atari 2600)
27. Millipede (Atari 2600)
28. Football (Atari 2600)
29. RealSports Tennis (Atari 2600)
30. Combat (Atari 2600)

Sky Diver for the Atari 2600 makes a brief appearance in the first Game Room trailer, so expect it—and many other 2600 titles—eventually. The initial Game Room leak showed off games like Shark! Shark! and Star Strike for the Intellvision and Atari's RealSports Baseball and Realsports Basketball, so expect those too.
They list Astrosmash twice, so it's not 100%

If they grouped them together in packages I'd bite, but there's no way I'd spend more than a dollar on any single Intellevision game. Make it $5 for the lot and include Utopia and I'm in.

I think the game they're missing is Adventure (Atari 2600). It was clearly shown in the promo video.

I already own Tempest, Centipede and Asteroids Deluxe. They better just pop up in my arcade.

If you can do without the game room backdrop, just pick up Atari Anthology for the original Xbox. It's backwards compatible and awesome.

By the same logic, Intellivision Lives is on GoD already.

I have to wonder if it'll disappear, or if they'll disable BC for Atari Anthology...

Does make it look somewhat enticing. I loved dicking around with the crib in NFL 2K5.

There's tons of potential here and it looks like they've taken great care with it so far. Hopefully it will import some of our XBLA games as well.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

So .... it's just a new shell that they're putting around all the retro games, plus something about medals and achievements that I couldn't hear because the guy was standing 400 yards from the microphone when he said it.

Anyway, I don't really care about having my own virtual arcade versus going to the approrpiate blade on the XBL screen and picking a game off a list, but whatever -- if it gets some good retro games on the system, why not.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

I think the Game Room thing could be cool if it does a few things well...

1. It says friends can come into your arcade and try the games... it needs to be more than simply the same game trial we always get. I want my friends to come into my arcade and be able to play any game i bought as if they had the full game. Achievements and such would be locked for them but otherwise - play away.

2. Take a note from the Skee-Ball game on the iPhone. Make playing the games generate tickets or something that you can redeem at a concession stand in the arcade for stupid shit to decorate your room. Think the quarter machines in Shenmue.

3. I want multiple people to be able to play one game at the same time so high scores could be compared. A built in interface like in the multiplayer version of Pinball FX that allows simultaneous play and score tracking would be perfect.

4. Built in tournament setups. I want to be able to issue challenges to friends in my game room (Like in Burnout Paradise) and they can choose to join in and all the bracketing and such would be automated by the system.

5. Set up the whole room like the waiting room of Dead or Alive 4. You could run around as goofy ass avatars doing weird dances and stuff and on the wall of the room was a big screen that showed the action going on in the actual game. It was very social and pretty fun.

I think you have WAYYYYYY unrealistic expectations for the Game Room. I think it's just straight-up ports with a virtual cabinet user interface. It would be nice if some of the current games were compatible with this (Pac Man CE ), but I strongly doubt they will be. And that initial list -- there are I think three arcade games I recognize and two of them (Centipede and Tempest) are essentially unplayable with the 360 controller anyway.

Oh i don't think it will happen. I imagine it will end up being a total waste of time. I was merely positing some ideas that i think could turn it into something awesome.

As it stands though, i imagine it will be a new skin on the My Games list.

You wish is granted on #1. It was posted in the Joystiq article, IIRC.

I read the article and, iirc, it said visitors could visit your arcade and try before they buy. Technically though, the demos allow that. I want to them to be able to play the whole damn thing all the way through if they so desire. Not a shortened demo version.
