The looks nice, but I just have to ask, why is the top part of the game Orange? where it says "Arcade"?

Did Microsoft change it like how they did with the Retail games?

Looks cool though :P

BTW, @2&3: I think @1 is joking, because of what he wrote below "First!"...

@5 I really do hope you are mocking stupid people, not only for the sake of the English language but also for any of your potential offspring.

Regarding the game - looks like it may be quite fun in a pick up and play kind of way.

@6 Yeah Guardian Heroes and Renegade Ops have this solid orange motif too, they might be changing it to fit in with the current Kinect Arcade and Kinect Fun Labs idents.

Woops, forgot to comment on the actual game.

Yeah, Rotastic looks like a game I'd pay 400 for, but not 800. DotW a go-go!

Ah great, left my computer unlocked whilst I went to lunch - schoolboy error.

OT: XBLA just gets better and better doesn't it!

Looks like a fun one, but I'd prefer a video instead of screens.

Why do you remove comments? People have the right to say whatever they want no matter how ignorant and immature they sound.

@ #17: "No matter how ignorant and immature they sound".

You've just answered your own question there, buddy.

On topic, this looks pretty fun. Especially for a hardcore casual gamer like oneself.

Every time they delete a post it ready makes me want to know what that person said.

Anyways, this looks like something that would be on Hot Apps and seems interesting. Still surprised that Angry Birds hasn't made its way to Live yet.
