Excerpt: December 2005 was the time that Microsoft was struggling with the simultaneous launch of the Xbox 360 in all the major territories; it was also when Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved proved to be one of the early talking points of the console’s Xbox Live Arcade service. The genesis of the game may have been a mere mini game in Project Gotham Racing 2, although Geometry War’s impact on Xbox Live Arcade proved to be a major success story.
Summary: When the Xbox 360 launched in 2005, one game was king. Even though there were good games like Kameo and Project Gotham Racing 3 , a little $5 Xbox Live Arcade game proved to be one of the most played. Now, almost 3 years later, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved is back on XBLA and better than ever.
Conclusion: We don't just focus on news and reviews, we also speak upon gamerscore and other facets of Xbox 360 that other companies neglect. We didn't want to try and be an IGN or Trueachievements, we wanted to be a hybrid that covers all of those areas. So check us out, give us a listen and I'm sure a lot of you will enjoy what we have to offer. Thanks for your time.
Excerpt: How does one improve on perfection? More to the point, how does one improve on perfection that comes as a result of mixing up a heady brew of stunning visual effects, supreme audio and that old friend – addiction? For the answer, take a look at this sequel to one of Xbox Live Arcade’s biggest selling titles. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 sees Bizarre take the tried and tested Geometry Wars formula, and add five new spins to the mix.
Excerpt: The shoot ‘em up genre sits as the cornerstone of video game history. From Galaga to Ikaruga, Space Invaders to RayStorm, single-seater ships scrolling sideways, upwards and all about are as persistent an element in the gaming world as heroes rescuing princesses, knights felling dragons and highly-combustible barrels. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2, the sequel to Bizarre Creation’s best-selling Xbox Live Arcade title, doesn’t do much to change the formula.
Excerpt: When the Xbox 360 launched back in November of 2005, the lineup of launch games wasn't exactly stellar. Sure, retail titles like Call of Duty 2 and Condemned saw both critical acclaim and good sales results eventually, but that first day we turned on our 360s, there just wasn't a whole lot to be excited about at the time.
