Wednesday Update -- XBLA Release, Indie Interview on FD
Today sees the release of lots of games within a game on XBox Live. Game Room was released, marking the end of XBox Live Arcade's Block Party. The "game" itself is free but each arcade game within it is 3 to 5 bucks. An interesting idea and a good way to get a lot of those old arcade and Atari games out onto the system without wasting a week's XBLA time slot that could be spent on something a little more robust. I'll probably be wasting a little time (and a little money) on it later tonight. It's worth mentioning that this is a cross-platform title that can be played on both your 360 and PC, and I'm pretty sure your achievements go back and forth as well.
Also this week, I posted an interview with Soulcaster developer MagicalTimeBean on the other place I sell my soul and free time to, ForceDisconnect.com. You can find the interview here. Thanks again Ian, always a pleasure.
