I got my copy yesterday and played through some of the demos. The craziest one has to be "Armed and Dangerous". I played through that one at least a half-dozen times and giggled like an idiot the entire time. It also features has the most insane weapon I've ever seen in a videogame called the "Topsy-Turvy Bomb". Funny stuff! :lol:


Grabbed by the Ghoulies was fun as well. It is so nice to see that timeless Rare look on the Xbox! My only two quibbles with the game were the camera control and the fighting scheme. The camera is rotated with the two triggers, and you fight by pushing the right thumbstick towards the creature you want to attack. That's pretty much the opposite of every other game like this I've ever played, where the camera is on the right thumbstick and the triggers are used to fight. It worked for this game (although I was constantly rotating the camera in the wrong direction), but I can't say I'm crazy about it. But the game looked fantastic, and I really like the "comic book" style.


Those were the two highlights for me. SSX3 was okay, but I never liked the controls in that series. Metal Arms I had played back in October (and loved), and my man Bryan_ZZ hooked me up with the Rainbow Six demo already so I didn't play that one either. ESPN NCAA had no sound on my demo disc so it was tough to really get into that one.


Another great demo disc this month! I haven't been thrilled with either the magazine or the disc in the past, but the last few months have been great.

I saw that last month's issue in the newstands came with the demo disc in a thin pak DVD case. Are all newsstand issues coming like that now? If so, that's a bum deal for subscribers.



I think that's right. My subscription ran out and I haven't gotten around to renewing yet, so the last few issues I've picked up from the newstands have all had the slimpack DVD cases. Supposedly you can order a years worth from the magazines website, but it's like $20...
