Hey, searched here and didn't see it, but, I found this on the xbox.com forums.

If that user is correct then we'll not get any new Game Room games until late April. As I stated in the post, if you think about it, yes it makes sense. We got 30 games at launch. So, 7 games launch week, maybe 2 more to round it out makes 4 weeks worth. Thinking April 21st we'll get new games, unless there's information in that thread I completely missed.

Thoughts?

Kind of lame, was hoping they would roll out the Midway/Williams catalog soon. Granted this is easier on my wallet if this ends up being the case.

Aww sad times, I was hoping to see some new content for the Game Room every Wednesday. I guess SupCom2 will have to keep me amused until then :-p

A bit off-topic to the thread but that looks pretty good. How much you guys wanna bet that Game Room is going to KEEP getting the gamerscore upped and will violate all of the rules that MS laid out. I mean, 1000 games over 3 years? I could easily see this going back 2000G.

I won't be so disappointed about this empty month if at the end they have some bug-wise or feature-wise improvements to show for it.

Although it would be nice to see some Capcom games soon, the more Konami packs the bigger a chance to see some classics like Amidar, Circus Charlie, Hyper Olympic and Roc'n Rope.

I love Amidar. I still have maps I made for perfect runs through the levels since the enemies path is pre-determined. In fact I posted some of them when I was planning a WR attempt.

Here is Stage 1 and 2 perfect runs I posted on TwinGalaxies.

Well done! Love that game too, although I'm still far from the 3 million (hard)/19 million (easy) world records.

Game packs from Jaleco, Universal, Taito, Irem and Nintendo would be great as well.
