As of the week ending May 21, 2011, I noticed that Game Room no longer is listed on XBLA for download.  This might have happened earlier but I just noticed it this week and I've checked on it periodically.

#6 Posted by BulletproofMonk (2730 posts) -
@froesti: Nope. It never came out.

@BulletproofMonk:

What's even stranger is the fact it on the top ten played XBLA games almost every week.

Games are getting released on Windows Phone 7 under the Game Room title. Weird.

That's actually pretty shitty.

#16 Posted by JJWeatherman (14569 posts) -

It's legitimately sad to me how hard this crashed and burned. It was a good idea! Why couldn't it work?!


Oh yeah, pricing.

Also, the hilariously poor quality of numerous ports.

Hello, games that have no business being played on an Xbox 360 controller!

God just wanted to make sure Game Room was ready for everyone in heaven when this whole rapture thing happens.

#24 Posted by xyzygy (10077 posts) -

Are you people blind? It's still there. I am looking at it right now.

#25 Posted by MideonNViscera (2252 posts) -

heh I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. Everybody on my friends list basically had the Game Room title, and then not one of us bought an actual game for it haha

#26 Posted by Nasos100 (727 posts) -
@JJWeatherman: also the fact that a lot of them were just plain crap. why would someone want to play an intellevision game?
#27 Posted by Olivaw (1215 posts) -

Can't believe they never released Sunset Riders.

#28 Posted by GoofyGoober (933 posts) -

I am looking at it right now and when i click on it is ask for me to confirm download.

#29 Posted by MideonNViscera (2252 posts) -

Woulda been better if my arcade games showed up there. Turtles, Contra, SF2: Hyper Fighting, etc. People would actually want to play those. Fuck Centipede or whatever other shitty old games there were.

Game Room was never released on XBLA...it was released on Games on Demand  <_<

...so is it a success of failure?

#33 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11382 posts) -

What! No! I was totally going to maybe download that after I got a new 360! NO!!!

Online
#34 Posted by LordAndrew (14430 posts) -

It's still on xbox.com, so you can still "purchase" the game and all the game packs right now if you're worried. I did that yesterday. I don't know if the actual games are still available for purchase though.

#35 Posted by PillClinton (3295 posts) -

I do miss those whacky Game Room QLs...  :'(

#36 Posted by laserbolts (5365 posts) -
The game room quick looks were by far my favorite. Too bad there won't be another :(
#37 Posted by JustinAquarius (198 posts) -

The only thing that sucks about this is no more quick looks.

Also the fact that most people who have an interest in old school games like these are most likely going to emulate them anyway :P.

@Video_Game_King: Not if they want medals!

MAMEdals. That's what we need.

NOTHING STOPS THE GAME ROOM QUICK LOOK. NOTHING DAMN IT! *cries ;_;*

My Game Room is filled with grilled chickens or whatever that placeholder is

I used it once. Saw that Jungler wasn't available in my region and said fuck this shit.

They even had region locking in Game Room? That's messed up.
#44 Posted by musclerider (594 posts) -

I can't believe it took them this long. It's not like they've released anything on it for months.

#45 Edited by Cincaid (2959 posts) -

Uh. I'm looking at it as I'm writing this, and it's available for download. Also, all the 13 game packs are marked as "Free". Are those activated in Game Room for a fee, or did they actually just make everything for it free?

Also I have no idea why some can't see it on XBLA anymore. Maybe a certain region can't get it anymore? I'm in Sweden.

EDIT: Since everything was "Free" I'm downloading it right now. I realize you need to activate the full game for a fee, but still. Really wonder why some can't see it anymore.

#46 Posted by MideonNViscera (2252 posts) -

Sometimes crap can't be found, but can still be DLed. I can't find Double Dragon on the marketplace anywhere anymore, but if I delete it and then go to my download history I can still get it back.

I'm in Canada, I can see it too.

The Windows Phone 7 implementation is poor. Not only is each game a separate app (with no easy way to search for every Game Room app) with bad touch controls, but it doesn't seem to connect back to the "Game Room account" you spent months of your life investing in. ..right?


But, I suppose we can expect nothing less. Actually the Lunar Lander port seems serviceable; if I liked Lunar Landar more I'd probably buy it.

The quick look is still up.. if that's any consolation. It barely is for me.. ):
#50 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

The Game Room quick look has died along with it, but I agree this was a solid idea!
