Hello forum,

I am going to be making my own game via XNA Express and since this a site for game enthusiasts I figure I would ask for input on what you guys would like to see either story or game play whatever. Right now I am in the beginning of game design writing up the design document. So if you have some ideals on what you would like to see please let me know. Intelligent posts will always be appreciated. I am more inclined to make a 2d action game like golden axe but i'm up for any challege. Hopefully it becomes good enough to be put out on live arcade so we should see. Or if you want me to try my hand at porting a previous game to this format let me know (Duke Nukem 1, 2, 3D anyone?).

My other question is if I but up a banner for xbox360a during beta testing as I pass it around to other XNA creator club members would that qualify me for the award putting xbox360a after your name?

You can do that after your name anyways.

Anywho, good luck, and I'd definately like to see some Duke Nukem' style stuff.

Yeah, that would be trademark infringement if not copyright. Though I guess I could make a fat little plumber guy name John and he gets transfered to sun flower kingdom or something lol. Who would be the boss at the end of the levels?

As Duke Nukem has had it's source code released and can be ported I know atleast Duke Nukem 3D has.

Porting Goldeneye would complete my retro gaming collection and would sit along the likes of Sonic and Golden Axe on the mantle of worthyness ;)

Something I'd really like to see done is an arcade style side-scroller that tells a really compelling & gritty story. Maybe I'm just dealing with The Darkness story after effects but, hey, I've always been a sucker for a good story. In fact I still argue it's the most important part of a great game.

Yeah that would be cool. Problem is I don't want to get in trouble, Nintendo owns the right to the game that's why it hasn't been put on Xbox Live. I don't know fully the law but I think that would be illegal?

Yeah, no doubt will be a Wii arcade game sometime in the future. But hey, we can still dream huh :)

Yes we can. Speaking of porting I just got Wolfinstien 3D's source code going to try and get it recongized in C# express and see what I can accomplish. I loved that game.

Well, i'm a fan of Sci-fi/FPS's so I would work with Duke Nukem' code.

I want to see Halo 1 only Multiplayer on the Arcade, although not very possible.

Along the lines of story or whatever, just think of something creative.

And you can put "x360a" after your name if you want. You dont really need permission.

That would most likely mean cut scenes would have to be included. Maybe the cut scenes could be done Comic book style? I dunno.

Unless you mean something like Double Dragon. Did you see the way his girlfriend got sucker punched?

I'm trying not to be silly but you should recreate a Gears of War type game but 2d. Or something like that game Worms. Or what do you think about Gears of Worms? OK I'm a little tired sorry :p

Do i even have to say it?

I've got balls of steel, balls balls balls of steel!

LOL ha man i would LOVE to see a duke nukem 3d port to the 360 arcade. After all, duke 3d was the first online multiplayer game i ever played. Back in the day my older brother would set me up online with one of his friends. I was completely blown away by being able to play with someone on the other side of town...now i'm playing with people around the world!! :) Anyone remember "holo-duke"? Greatest multiplayer invention ever :p

Just an update: I am working on Wolfinstein and duke nukem. When I have them completed I will post them if the site owners doesn't mind. Though I think for legal reasons you should have a retail copy of both games as the source code was the only thing released and not the graphics etc. I don't really care but just telling you.

nice one, I hope it all goes good man, I have no idea about any of this stuff but Wolfenstein and Duke Nukem would be great.

Well it looks like I might be doing Duke Nukem for naught from Planet Duke on 8/13/07 that they might be porting it and putting it up on Xbox live. I guess 3D Realms talked to Microsoft already.

Funny on Wii forums everyone says GoldenEye belongs to Rare which is now under Microsoft control so I would check that if I were you

Back on topic I would like to see Frogger: He's Back and Spyro: something or other

I always liked the rpg stat building type of games, and if you threw online into an rpg that would be pretty new

Whatever you make I just think it's awesome you can make your own game and try to get it on arcade. Really I'm up for anything, but as someone already said, whenever you have free time check out Goldeneye. I remember that game was great on the 64 and it would be awesome to see it on XBLA.

This isn't very constructive because I've got no suggestions, but good luck dude, I didn't even know you could make your own games

My proposal:-

Outfall: A post-nuclear role playing game
Old-school isometric view of a tile-based playing field
Complete sandbox-style, turn-based, R rated gameplay
Karma: Choices made adversely affect the environment and its inhabitants
XP-based levelling coupled with a skill system

Here are some mockup screenshots for you: (1 (http://img174.imageshack.us/img174/6026/albumpicphpbt0.jpg)) (2 (http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/9448/albumpic1phpau9.jpg))

But seriously, if there's any hope in hell of you porting Fallout over without infringing copyrights etc i would gladly pay you $60 for it.
