    Larry, could you please address why we see the same deals repeated?
    Please can we get some new original deals? Not; Rockstar, EA, CoD, Sega, ubisoft, 2k games, borderlands and repeat. I don’t know why new deals aren’t happening. I’ll assume you are reading the feedback for every DoTW. This has been going on for some time now.
    Is anything happening about this?

    Looked interesting at first glance but the early reviews have been a discouraging. Good thing there’s always a demo.

    I didn’t like this game much on my iPhone when I got it for free, no way i’ll pay 10 bucks for a port to xbox live arcade

    Final Fantasy came out today for Windows Phone 7 for $6.99. Anyway you could start posting more WP7 news here Major?

      Seconded. I have to use two other websites to keep up-to-date with WP7 releases. Surely it makes sense to have everything all here.

    I was interested until I saw it was a Kinect only game. I’m out!

    • Hugoku

      I think you can use a controller as well.

        I’m back in then. Downloading demo now. :-)

    My Kinect is sitting in it’s box and will continue to do so.

    Strange that this has only 200 gamerscore. I thought starting in June all games would have 400. You did say right here that the, “Gamerscore increase will be required in all new XBLA games starting in June 2012.”

      Game may have been submitted and passed certification much earlier maybe?
      Probably not worth it going back and adding cheevos, then go thru certification again.
