I have recently bought GTA 4 and thought id have a bash at the QUB3D highscore achievement. After about 20 goes ( One of them being dead on the highscore(Damn the pissed me off)) i eventually got it. YEY!

I found that it is highly addicting and every time I get a little bored i find myself jumping in a cab off to the strip club and hop on QUB3D ( after a few lap dances ofc ^^)

So what i thought is that Microsoft should make it avalible to buy on the XBL marketplace .

Please send your thoughts!!

Thanks Ginger,

Well what would be the point if it is already included in GTA IV? Even for those who haven't purchased GTA IV yet then it is still probably a slim number who will buy it.

I personally think it would have been a solid arcade game if it wasn't already included in GTA though and did find it fun while going for that highscore achievement.

Yea there would be no point to selling it on XBLA.

You never know look at Geometry Wars started off in PGR and then it turned into it's own arcade game. Since I haven't played this game I wouldn't know if it is any good or not but remember you never know what could happen with arcade titles.

People would buy it purely for the achievements, plus you wouldn't have the inconvinience of loading up GTA everytime you wanted to play it.

True, the achievements kind of slipped my mind :eek:. I think it would do ok in sales if it sold for 400 Ms points but 800 theres just no point. And if they were to make a game like this Bax, something tells me the achievements would be hard as hell

That game rocks. I got the Achievement for everyone I know with the game just so I can play it. I'd by it on XBLA and what about making online.

Can't really comment on the difficulty of the achievements, I've never played the game. Always good to have a challenge once in a while though.

If it had Live you could maybe battle each other like on GH3 with power ups such as faster falling blocks and flashing colours.

Agreed. If Zuma and tetris had an evil kid they would name it QUB3D!

Yeah definatley.
Took me 3 goes to get the high score.
As i ignored the 'special power' ability the first 2 times lol.
Good game though.
Could very well be an XBLA Game.

In the top left corner there is a special bar that builds up
when full you can choose to do a special move.
e.g. - destroy the whole bottom row etc.
to help if you get stuck :)

I haven't pladed QUD3D yet on GTA:IV, but I don't think there would be any point in bringing it out for XBLA, as most people have GTA:IV anyway.

Well if they improved a little adding stuff, I would probably buy it for 800ms, but no more than that.

Ugh.

What a pile of cack.

If it wasn't bad enough achieving the high score, once I'd cracked it, I started pushing buttons, trying to activate the special move.

In the process, I pushed LB which exits the game... without saving your high score, so the achievement didn't unlock!

This meant that this awful game that I was going to play only until I finally got that achievement and then could look forwards to a life free from qubed...

I had to do it all over again!

This is one horror story I'd care not to re-live.

If you liked it, cool. Just because I think it's a steaming turd doesn't mean it actually is.

(However, I don't have King Kong on my games played list, so I arguably know a steaming turd when I see one - that's a generalisation, not directed at anyone in this thread, I'm just having a rant, see what this game does to people).

To use the special abilities press A, B, X or Y to the corresponding colour.

Hope it helps.

Stop Bumping! Not allowed in these forums!

And no, its a stupid idea. It's very basic (even for xbla).
And its in gta anyway, its not gonna happen.

DO NOT BUMP

This made me smile bro. ;)

I didn't get it my first try so I rolled a blunt and I smoked it to the head then tried again, got it with little effort afterwords. :woop:

Would you honestly buy it? I fucking hated that stupid excuse for an achivement. I got it but it was damn annoying.

And what the hell is bumping??

Dunno why everyone found it so hard to get the achievement, i got it first time *pats self on back* :)

It is a shit game, its like a much more frustrating and therefore less fun version of tetris. People would buy it if they released it but somehow i dont think they ever would (dont quote me on this when they do)

If they did release it, would be good if you could get the achievements through playing it on GTA

i got it on my second try or so and the achievement itself was not hard at all, but i really think that a full arcade version would be a waste of time and money. there are so much better puzzle games on the marketplace right now, just look at "poker smash" "super puzzle fighter" or "tetris splash" (i'm still waiting on an euro release on that one)...

I think they would have to add alot to that game to make worth anything on the arcade. Plus that game is really simple. I got the achievement in 10 min.
