How would you play Root Beer Tapper co-op? It’s almost worth buying it on Xbox Live Arcade just to find out.


Speaking of XBLA, I seem to be the only member of my XBL friends group who actually makes use of it. Personally, I’m having a blast playing Doom and Geometry Wars Evolved, and am looking forward to the upcoming Worms. I may write a longer entry on this topic later.

  1. Alas – another reason you miss me in the 360 frontier. Ask Sean – I was the XBLA king. There was many a night that he would send me an invite to play co-op Perfect Dark Zero and I was too entrenched in Geometry Wars to budge.

    I agree wholeheartedly – some of those games on XBLA – for $5 – are a better value than the $60 you sink on these multi-million dollar Goliaths. I played a lot of Geometry Wars (nabbing a few tough achievements). Hexic (which comes packed on the hard drive) is very addictive. I also nailed a number of the achievements on Smash TV (although at the time I wished I had someone to play through that game with) – alas poor Jason, it appears our ships were sailing in different oceans. I also played – and beat – Wik: Fable of Souls which was a fairly unique puzzle platformer.

    Yup… that’s a great service.

    BTW You should check out Castle Crashers if it’s out. It’s developed by the guys who developed Alien Hominid – which is legendary in independent gaming circles.

    Also, the BEST Castlevania is dropping soon. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of the greatest 2D games ever made.

    I said it once and I’ll keep saying it. Man, I need a 360.

  2. Well, I think you know why I don’t play them… yup, the whole bleeding eyes thing.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the sense of nostalgia they bring about, but after 10 minutes, it is gone and I just can’t do it. I can only think of two classic games that could keep my attention: Asteroids and Donkey Kong. That’s it. I’d love to throw Pac-Man in there, but without remembering the patterns, it isn’t worth it.

    Actually, Smash TV might have been fun to play co-op, as would The Simpson’s (the one where Marge has the vacuum cleaner).

  3. Ed’s aforementioned Castle Crashers is supposed to be inspired by those old beat-’em-up Simpsons and TMNT arcade games.

    Neither Alien Hominid nor Castle Crashers has been released for XLBA, though.
