Yep, regular plain-jane Tetris. You vs an opponent, any time you clear more than 1 line at a time, it pushes your opponent's blocks up. There are a few other modes too though. Online, there's a 4-player version, as well as a version called "Push", where you and an opponent share the same block space, with one coming from the top and one from the bottom, each one "pushing" the other in the opposite direction. I haven't played either, since that would take away from my precious 2-player time There are a few more modes in the single-player too, including a touch-screen mode

Nintendo sent Bush a DS Lite and Brain Age for his 60th birthday. Awesome. I'm playing... nothing exciting, unfortunately. I'm about to write my review for Field Commander (which was good), and otherwise I'm working on Jaws Unleashed for PS2 (which sucks) and Tomb Raider: Legend for PSP (bad port of great game).

prey looks fun, but I'll rent it...not worth $65 IMO. chromehounds WAS going to be a buy for me but no offline multiplayer at all, what the hell? I bought Xmen legends II for psp and so far I like it a lot. never played the series before and its fun, just wish I would have not bought marvel nemesis (starting to get burnt on comic games) So the next 360 buy for me will be Dead Rising, gonna be so much fun!

I just played the training mission of Chromehounds. The pace could end up being impossibly slow, but everything else has seemed pretty solid so far. Four weapons -- switch with R-button, fire with R-trigger. Switch to first-person weapon view by clicking right analog; can still move in this position. Controlling the mech seems fine, but like I said... sloowwwww. Looks great in HD, and the voice acting has been good so far. The online sounds great, but I'm going to make my way through single-player first to get all of the good parts you need.

Chromehounds is a pretty solid title. Single-player is fine, but a bit boring. Good training for the online mode. I haven't spent much time online yet, but I found it to be overcomplicated in its setup, which has annoyed me a bit thus far... but I found a squad to join and will spent a few hours playing this weekend before reviewing it on Monday or so. Probably looking at a low 7 grade, maybe 7.3. I started playing Lord of the Rings: Battle for Midde-Earth II tonight... pretty solid. I've never gotten deep into an RTS, so this is a learning experience for me as well. I played through both of the training missions before starting the game. As long as there's enough variety to the missions, it'll probably end up with a slightly better score than Chromehounds. Prey should arrive tomorrow or Monday. I asked for it to be sent directly to me, but it was sent to Static's address. I'm really hoping for tomorrow so that I can finish it before I leave for Italy on the 24th.

Hey Duder, how did you end up liking Point Blank DS? I loved all the Point Blank games in the arcade and for PS1, and I would love to know if it's worth the $. Also, I'd definitely participate in a "greatest games" poll.

It's pretty solid, but all of the stages are from previous arcade/PSone releases. Worth the money? Well, depends on your love for the series. I definitely enjoyed it, but I doubt it would be worth my own $30.

i'm thinking of trading in my PD0 and getting Prey, it looks so nice. plus PD0 is buggy as hell on XBL. when you get your hands on Dead Rising, PLEASE let us know how it is.

Static Multimedia: Prey (360)

My review just went up. I thought it was excellent. Multiplayer comes up short in features, but the single-player experience tops PDZ handily.

Definitely can do. I contacted Capcom about getting a review copy for Static, but I doubt I'll be able to (they told me previously that they're usually short on review copies). If I can't get one through WorthPlaying, I'll just buy the damn thing. I'm so pumped about killing hundreds of zombies with random objects.

I just finished the Good Campaign in Battle for Middle-Earth II. I'm really digging this game... I've never played through an RTS before, console or PC. I've gotta finish up the Evil Campaign and do some Live play by Sunday night. Leaving for Italy on Monday, and I need to get my review in before I go.

Awesome, thanks. My gamertag is the same as my name here, "deja andyroo" I won't be able to play anything for a couple of weeks, because I'm spending the next two days focused on finishing up LOTR, then I'll be going on vacation for nine days, but maybe we can play something in August when everything's back to normal for me.

so how is sf II on live arcade? i'm guessing that pretty much everyone on there would be better than me, I can't win without ryu, ken or chun-li.

it's worth it. i got a deal online for xbox live gold. it was the special package with a headset, $20 rebate on a game ($40 oblivion!), 1 year gold and Billard 2 (XBLA) for like $63 shipped. not bad.

anyways, you can always just download the Dead Rising Demo that just came out and kill time that way.
