Is it out toady or tomorrow. Looks fantastic. Its super metroid. on earth, with no space pirates. Wait this isn't super metroid at all, its just a decent 2d platformer on a current console. Now thats a rare thing indeed.

Aside from braid and bionic commando rearmed.

10 hours?
isent there a achievement for finishing it in under 4?
i was extremely dissapointed when i heard that.
and why do every single game have to come out with other games?
like for the past 6 weeks theres been not 1 video game i want to get, now in the next 2 weeks i want wolfenstien, shadow complex, batman AA.
3 games in 2 weeks.
but than 0 games in 6??????
im lost, i think any game especially shadow complex would sell better in a time where theres no new releases, compare to a time with 3 new releases.

I thought this sound good ever since the Super Metroid comparison in the preview :)

Not sure if I'm likely to buy it though - I'm not convinced about the replayability. The experience retention is a good idea to encourage people to go back, but if it's pretty easy the first time then how simple is it going to be in subsequent run-throughs?

You do know its an XBL game yeah?
10hrs is great for something you download.

This and Mass Effect are the only two games that make me wish i had a 360. 2 out of thousands.

Its a shame its an Epic game, We'll never see it on the ps3.

I hope everyone enjoys it.

Unreal Tournament was an Epic developed game, so there is a glimmer of hope.

I personally doubt it will appear on PSN, but you never know.

Looks decent, so I'll try the trial when it pops up.

Super Metroid is one of the all time greats, if this even comes close to it then it's a day one for me.

Wow XBLA is really coming into it's own with Trials HD and this really showing off the type of quality donloadable games can offer! And they're both 2D/3D and work amazingly well.

I'm sure the makers of Metroid: Other M (Team Ninja) will be looking at what this game does well for more ideas/insperation. Although their trailer look very promising anyway, again mixing 3D and 2D elements!

Maybe Sega should take note for their next Sonic game though!

2D is the future!! - Well, not quite, but with games like this, Metroid:Other M, Boy and his Blob and the utterly beautiful Muramasa to come, I hope we see something of a return to 'new retro' stuff.

Wednesday.

I have to say, the xbox 'Summer of arcade' is pure genius. All the big games come out near Christmas so they release all the big arcade games in summer when there is no competition. Battlefield 1943, Splosion Man, Trials, Shadow Complex, it's been an expensive summer in arcade terms!

I distrust patriotism; the reasonable man can find little in these days that is worth dying for. But dying against - there's enough iniquity in Europe to carry the most urbane or decadent into battle.

My thoughts exactly. Plus they're all short enough/easy to get into, so you can complete them in the same week. :D
