    It is indeed very good!

    What isn't, however, is Mr Driller's online mode...
    Namco has released a response to the public, which can be read here in Japanese. Basically, it says the following:
    - We are aware that there are some problems in Mr. Driller Online's online play.
    - We are currently investigating the issue.
    - We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.
    - We will post an update at a later time.
    Whoops.

    It's Geometry Wars Evolved 2 (Multiplatform!) in that link btw :)

    I was going to say, "multiplatform?"...

    Well, guess this is what we can come to expect now Bizarre Creations got bought...

    Well, obviously Ikaruga was released today.

    And there was much rejoicing, not to mention cries of "WTF?! Christ, this is hard!"

    Online co-op is quite nice, if a bit laggy.

    Also up this week, two new packs for Poker Smash:
    The new content includes two Action Mode Environments in the Environment Pack and an additional 15 Puzzles in the Puzzle Pack, giving 'Poker Smash' players a total of 13 immersive environments and 70 mind bending puzzles. The 'Poker Smash' Environment Pack and Puzzle Pack will each be available for 100 Microsoft Points.
    Oh, and Bionic Commando: Rearmed has recieved an 'M' rating. But it's in Australia, which means nothing as they're mental down there.

    Capcom actually commented on that. They say it's intentional because they wanted to keep the bit where some guys head blows up (or something). Means nothing to me but apparently that's the case.

    Rocketmen getting new achievements?

    Looks like it's for the hilarious (!) expansion pack, "It Came From Uranus" (notlol).

    There are also more screens from Rocket Riot which looks interesting, if only for the art style. I like!

    I went on a binge at the weekend and bought Assault Heroes, Pacman C.E. and Marble Blast, all really rather smashing.

    Pacman especially.

    What i do HATE though is that you HAVE to be online for your scores to register, i got a great one on Pacman, plugged in the nets, but it still wouldn't upload. Pinball allows you to do this, i don't see why it isn't standard.

    I hope the new level pack for N+ comes out too, apparently it's in the queue. I've finished the game, I've got into the top 50 in the leaderboards (about the limit to my ninja skillz), yet I still can't stop playing it. Need. More. Content.

    Aswell as Rocky & Bullwinkle, there's Battlezone on offer for 400 points.

    Hmm..... it'll probably be rubbish.

    WHY ALLOW THIS AND NOT DO DON PACHI YOU TWATS

    I bought Rez and Metal Slug today and have some points left over.

    Mr. Driller or N+? You decide!

    N+

    Driller is broken and they have made no effort with those fuzzy, 'orrible graphics.

    I'd also say N+ out of those two.

    And I'd love to have bought Metal Slug 3 if only they HADN'T PUT THAT SHITE FILTER ON IT

    Ooo N+ taking a lead here.

    I did notice the graphics on Mr. Driller were fuzzy as hell. I still enjoyed it. What part of the game is broken? Multiplayer isn't it?

    Another N+? Jeeeez. I was expecting at least a little Mr. Driller love!

    Is N+ really that good? I enjoyed Exit though, for some reason, I didn't actually play it very much. I liked the N+ demo as well, but then I also liked the Mr. Driller one.

    Gah! Decisions, decisions.

    On a side note, Metal Slug is bloody great, as is Rez.

    And Ikaruga.

    /has bought loads lately

    Seperate question... what is the point of the 'trance controller' in Rez? It seems pretty cool, but I'm not really sure if it's got a purpose or what.

    I'll go for N+ tonight it seems, unless someone can pull Mr. Driller back into the race!

    Or if you have any other suggestions, feel free. I already have a crapload of XBLA games though, so suggestions may be difficult.

    Online is broken. Such pisspoor efforts shouldn't be supported.
