Eets: Chowdown announced!
Got an Xbox 360 and access to the Live Arcade? Then you, my friend, will have a new exclusive version of Eets this year. Eets: Chowdown was officially announced for Xbox Live Arcade today, confirming the oh-so-sly hint Klei Entertainment slipped us during the Eets Caption Contest. In addition to a completely re-worked control scheme to fit the Xbox controller like a glove, Eets: Chowdown comes packed with 120 brand new levels exclusively for the Xbox 360, new items, a new scoring system, gorgeous HD graphics, and best of all, same-system multiplayer. Check out Klei Entertainment's announcement, complete with spiffy Eets wallpaper. Keep an eye out for our hungry pal on the Xbox soon.
Computer gamers be sure to check out our Eets review for more info on the PC version of the game.
The XBLA is casual game-maker's gateway to my wallet. I would never, and have never, paid any price for a downloadable PC game. It has never appealed to me.
XBLA though... I am endlessly buying points and using them to download games.
I don't know why this duality exists. But anyway, I'm glad to see another great game coming to XBLA
While I do occasionally buy downloadable content for the PC, it is mostly through Steam, (with the exception of Samorost) which is really nothing more than XBL for the PC.
Other than that slight aberration, I would have to agree with Measure. XBLA should really be taken advantage of for those casual game developers, as should Steam!
I feel safer funneling my money through two large corporations that, strangely enough, I trust to handle my money, than various small coops.
