    ???

    $10 for Qix?

    I hope the “++” is more than just added excessive bloom effects and “meth addict speed mode”…

    This was a fun game back in the day, you had to use the arrows to close up parts of the screen. Once a percentage of area was closed up or colored in you won. Each level got harder and you couldn’t be hit while attempting to block up the screen. Something like that.

    Major, in response to your podcast discussion about this game, Stepto was correct – it is in fact pronounced “kicks”. The arcade flyer pictured in the Wiki entry for this actually has a footnote on it that says “pronounced ‘kicks'”. lol (… which I guess makes more sense that way with a slogan like “Get your Qix from Taito”.)
    But yeah anyway, I actually remember the arcade version of this game, and how innovative it was for its time. It should be interesting to see what kind of glossy paintjob the XBLA version gets, what exactly the “++” is referring to, and if this version is as fun as the original.

    They picked this rather than Serious Sam HD, Alien Breed and Perfect Dark Arcade? Seriously? I wish XBLA would go back to releasing 2-3 games each week…

    Yeah, you guys need to bring out a couple each really a week if they are not big titles.
    Bring out perfect dark!

    Oh, this is one of my favorite games from the arcade days. I’ll have to check this out. I’d like an arcade port of the 1st Ridge Racer game, that would rule.

    Awesome. I remember playing this on the old C64 for hours on end as a kid. I’ll have to check it out. I like the recent retro “revision” games, though I undertand others being more reluctant to purchase the “moldy oldies.”

    I loved Perfect Dark back in its time, but I’m more interested in a redone Qix for $10 than I am a reskinned Perfect Dark for $15.
