I've never played Minecraft but my kids love it. With 3 Xbox consoles now in the house, it'd be cool to play with each other. $20 per Xbox seems kinda steep though.

There is split screen in Minecraft for Xbox so you only need one console.

That is TLinkerbell to you!

Yeah, I heard it may even be quad-screen, where 4 players can play simultaneously. Call me greedy though, I really love my screen real estate. ;)

Was alittle Bored so I'm going to start posting in this thread more of a news and impressions deal.

First up is Gameinformer revealed yesterday the Cover to the May issue Yesterday with it being a world-exclusive look at Halo 4 a month before the offical reveal at this year's E3, showing off the new look for long time character Cortanta. The 14 page cover story promises to have information on where the story is going, new screenshots and concept art. They are also going to cover hands on with the Mutiplayer component and are promising to give intel on something new in the mutiplayer which should change how the game is played. That's probably the class loadout system alluded by 343's Frank O'Conner at last months at Microsoft's spring showcase.

In Release new today Anomaly Warzone Earth was released on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft points. The game a port of an IOS title with XBLA exclusive levels is called a Tower Offense game most similar to Dylan's rolling western.

Seriously? Damn, that might actually sell me on it. I just need to know if it'll update at least close to as often as the PC one.

I tried it, didn't like it at all. Just seemed kind of sloppy to me. I'll hold out for the RPG.

Anyone excited for Prototype 2?

Yeah, it looks pretty fun. I never played the first, but it's from the same people that made Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, and from the trailers it looks just like it but better.

I dunno. Fez looks interesting, but I'm saving for Sonic 4E2, Kung Fu Strike (maybe), Retro City Rampage, and Quantum Conundrum.

Dragon's Dogma has me interested but I'm wary of it. Something about it gives me a bad feeling.
Granted it does come with a demo for RE6, so I dunno.

I was interested in Fez until I actually saw it. I was hoping for a 3D artstyle. 2D with a 3D camera looks too weird to me, and their not pulling it off as well as Paper Mario.

Well fez has been getting a lot of hyper and a lot of industry guys have been tweeting about it as the promo and review codes got sent Friday, apparently its the next big thing next to journey.

But yeah that 2D view with 3D world turning did make me pretty sick at first but it does make for cool puzzle platforming.

So you guys should try dead pixels and cthullu saves the world. The xbox live indie games platform has a lot of good stuff.

Hypership Out of Control and Decimation X3 are two XBLIG titles that I can't praise enough. Excellent fun. Wizorb and Protect Me Knight are also good games, although the latter is difficult to locate because the listed title is in Japanese, and you can't search the marketplace for Japanese characters.

Aw man you should. It's worth it just to stare at the very pretty visuals and listen to the awesome music and to check out the bonkers story, oh and the amazing bosses.............phew. Fortunately under all that ,there is a very good game as well,with some pretty unique mechanics for the SHUMUP genre. I recommend it to anyone who is remotely a fan of shooters. :)

This is the first time voice command has looked remotely appealing, at least in gaming, at least to me. And I mean basically exclusively the shouts. Fus Roh Dah is awesome.

Of course, I don't think a lot of people are fans of both Skyrim and Kinect. That just seems like the two most different fanbases Microsoft could find.

Nah. All the comments seem to be pretty happy about this. The short cuts like quick save and mal would be a life saver.

Microsoft seems to have found a good medium with core games and kinect. Mass effect 3, skyrim kinect, and ghost recon seem to be a good start.

Been playing beyond good and evil and its pretty good so far. Takes the zelda forumla to the next level.

So the xboxhl has some nice games hitting in rapid succession.
