I got the first few game packs to see if there was anything I liked but I've given up on it now.

Still nothing of real interest for me. I'll stick to spending my 240MSP's on Sonic games tomorrow! ;)

I'd get kaboom if we had a decent paddle controller. That madcatz arcade controller with the spinner on it that was released a few years ago is ass.

Haven't heard of any of them. Wake me up when they start releasing games from the eighties like Wonder Boy or Aliens.

I haven't bought a single game for Game Room, and I probably won't until Battletoads shows up. We want Battletoads!

When they first announced Game Room I was pretty excited. I think I bought like 6 games out of the first batch they released. I played it for a couple days and got a few achievements, but I haven't touched it since. I might go back in and see if they have anything I'm interested in now, but I'm pretty disappointed in how Game Room has turned out.

I still have to grind out a lot of the achievements for this thing. I love a few of the games, but 1000gs is going to get pricey

I feel like the quality of games they're releasing coupled with the fact that everyone who cares likely has the full 1000 (or close to it) by now is going to see Game Room sales plummet.

I did think it was hilarious that there was no theme in this Game Pack, thus causing the fancy arcade achievement to still be unobtainable for those who stopped when they got to Level 20.

If you don't like it, don't buy it. Stop whining.

But where are half the fuckin' games for this pack??? I've been waiting since the start of Game Room for Kaboom and Crackpots! I downloaded the pack, and they are not even there. What the fuck?

Kaboom! doesn't work too well anyway. The control stick is far too sensitive, it just flies to the opposite side of the screen, and D-pad is a little too slow for when speeds pick up. Pick your poison. =/

You guys need to realize that most of those well-known games would be released in the XBLA at 10-15 dollars instead of $3 on GR.

Also, you'll never get games like X-Men or Aliens due to liscensing issues.

There are two beat 'em ups currently on the GR. Shao-Lin's Road, and Mr. Goemon is sort of one.

Also, Midway went bankrupt, so their games aren't getting put anywhere till someone like Konami purchases them.

It gets really annoying every time game room is mentioned to read about how people just want street fighter and battle toads and any other game that is not considered original retro.
This was made for Original RETRO games only, The games you see now, are the kinds of games your gonna see forever. Game room isn't made for games that came out in the 90's and beyond. so get used to it!
If you dont like it, dont play it, dont comment.
These are the games of true skill so just leave it to the pros!

As an old school gamer I enjoy most of the games they have out in the GR; they stayed true to form and the game play seems spot on. The only problem for me is how expensive it will be to get the eventual 1000.

Cool, I havent touched Game Room for awhile but Im getting some points today and am craving some retro action so I'll definitely grab a few game packs and check these out.

And I dont really get all the hate for Game Room, things were too slow to begin with but there is a good selection of stuff available now.

You only get a mascot if you buy a game on it's release date. Otherwise it's 80 msp.

There are only 7 games out today. The other 8 must be for next week. Thanks for clearing up the misinformation.

I have to agree with a few others here saying that Kaboom! is pretty much the only game that interests me. Haven't even been on the Game Room lately...

There are about a dozen good games on here.
I picked up:

Battlantis, Mr. Goemon, Scramble, Super Cobra, Finalizer, Shao-Lin's Road, MegaZone, Time Pilot, Black Widow, and another one I'm too tired to recall. All worth the money, but I wish they had more companies involved. Konami is putting out 99% of the quality stuff and they won't have enough games to last a year.

HOLY SHIT! KABOOM!

I was looking at my old Atari games the other day, and thought, "Ha, Kaboom... That's one that'll never see Game Room release."

SHUT ME DOWN!

Now, I have to pick another title of my bunch to say, "That'll never be re-released"... Like Freeway, or something..

@24 - The release of the 15 games will be staggered over three weeks. So next Wednesday five more from the pack will be available, and the same for the Wednesday after that. There was a mistake made yesterday morning where all fifteen were available for a while... but that has been fixed now.

If the game room is transcending in eras which it seems to be that way, We have a very long wait for mid-late 80's titles so set your timelines back a couple more years and lower your standards to where it all began. they should have incorporated xbox live arcade titles as long as they were classics. I also think if we own a revised arcade classic from xbox live arcade we shouldnt have to re-purchase for a downgrade classic in the game room. Decor could also use some better ideas like blastering my arcade wall with my achievement plaques would be cool as well as props I own from the avatar marketplace.
