I actually paid to get points so I could buy the full version.    What a simply, elegant, and wonderful game.

Thumbs up!

I love it, but  I love Zuma even more. I had no idea when I got my 360 that I'd become so utterly addicted to the Live Arcade games.  smile

I see you playing Zuma more than *anything* else by a considerable margin.

I was really into it for a while there, as was my GF and my brother. Its hold on me has been lessening lately, so I've found my way back to some of the more expensive titles.  smile

The high score never saves, but the leaderboard score remains.

Hey - don't go dragging me into this (as the brother, not the girlfriend guys. Sheesh). I've played Zuma maybe 30 minutes total. On the 360, I stick to more impressive games..... like Bejeweled.  :oops:

I was so happy when I managed to get the no shooting (or whatever it's called) achievement done, I never knew a minute could last so long and I even tried setting up a timer so I'd have some idea how long I had left but every time I looked down I died so I had to abandon that plan.  Great game for sure.

I got my 360 the other day and I will second how impressive XBLA is.  I douwnloaded a bunch of the demos to try out and now I have to force myself not to buy every one of those games.  I need to figure out which are my favorites and limit myself. Geometry Wars was a lot of fun.  Basically a Robotron of sorts.  I liked it a lot.  I also liked Wik a great deal.

I have to give WIK another chance.

I knew there was a market for twitch gaming. And this is perfect, if not a little pricey but hidden so masterfully with POINTS.

I want the ability to win points if you get top scores.

the only reason i haven't paid for GW:RE yet is that i usually can't last through the 4 minute demo...once i get that down consistently, i'll probably succumb to the pressure as well...

$5. what is this $5 you paid for it?  I paid with my fictional and imaginary Microsoft Points..... these things cost me no money!

That said I think I have spent about 3500 points by now.

Check out DestructorCG - 308,315 in Retro mode. Ranked #188 in the world.

$5 of imaginary points for Geometery Wars doesn't bother me near as much as the 60 cents in imaginary points I spent to download a little 64x64 Denver Broncos logo for my gamer profile.

Personally, I can't figure out why people want to purchase a new icon for Live. Yeah, they're dirt cheap, but it's like a new faceplate for your 360 - who's gonna see it or frankly care what it looks like?

It isn't for others to care about.  It's for you to care about.  And if people want to pay money for a different icon, then so be it.  If they had one that I thought was cool enough, I think I would do it.

I guess you could say that the icons then are your way of supporting your favorite company. Nothing wrong with that.

Heck - I'm doing that already with Oblivion. Getting the Collector's Edition the day it's released.

I have PDZ, which is fun.

I have PGR3, which is insanely addictive in stretches and gorgeous to look at.

I just bought Condemned, which is reminding me heavily of Millennium, one of my favorite TV shows ever and one I'm currently rewatching through.

So why, oh why, oh why, does 90% of my time on the 360 still get spent on this game?  I'm so determined to hit 500K it's frightening.
