Game Room ... where nostalgia goes to die.

Most of the time, in the game room, there's an avatar who doesn't move and makes a Virtruvian Man pose.
 
Missile Command! Awesome. As for Mr. Goemon, if that's what eventually brought about the Mystical Ninja series, it's worth it.

Let's see, I have 28 people in my Friends list, and, from the looks of it, none of them have spent any real amount of time in Game Room. I know that's just anecdotal, but since we've heard almost nothing numbers-wise from MS, I've a feeling it's ended up as one colossal failure. I do enjoy watching these weekly trips down nostalgia lane for Jeff and Ryan, though. :)

The fact you did not end this QL with a fat Missile Command THE END screen is preposterous.

Posted by JerkFace

Love me some Game Room, but I can't really get into any of this week's titles.  That's a first for me.  Missile Command seems cool but am I the only one who finds it wicked hard?

Frogs and Flies (Atari 2600) > Frog Bog (Intellivision)

Frog Bog was featured on Grandmas Boy

Game Room, please, PLEASE, release games that cam out after my parents were born.

Seriously! I want mid 80's to early 90's arcade games! Og Contra, Rygar, etc.

When the Virtual Console launched, Nintendo was releasing three new games a week.  After a while it went down to two and now we're at one.
 
Will Game Room suffer a similar fate?  Stay tuned!

WHERE IS SINISTAR?
 
WHERE IS OUTRUN?!

Posted by Carlos1408

Lame games.

Posted by Rox360

Haha, just before Ryan mentioned SkiFree, I muttered "So no snow monsters in this? Lame."
 
Apparently they made an official iPhone version of SkiFree. That blows my mind. The past will never fade!

Posted by zombie2011

game rooms existence is justified because of these weekly QL's. Also the games arn't to shabby either.

@mnzy:  It's for people in their 30s and 40s.
Posted by Shane

Are they ever going to release anything from the NES era?

Edited by erinfizz

I feel less and less disappointed that Game Room won't run on my laptop all the time.

Posted by spiceninja
@Shane:  As in NES games? Very unlikely.
Posted by l3illyl3ob

Man, Mr Goemon is crazy.  It's hard to imagine that it started a huge franchise in Japan.   I have fond memories of playing the N64 games, weird to see where it started.

Posted by LtKetch

Another crappy release week, and this from someone old enough to have played  them when they were new.
Posted by wrecks

They need to stop with the 2600/intelivision games and open up the Arcade game floodgates.

Edited by Phototropic

I had completely forgotten how much Video Pinball I played when I was little.  That said I have no idea why people would buy these.

Posted by Daveyo520

I saw a real life Missile Command cabinet not but 2 days ago. I played the Dig Dug one beside it instead.

Has anyone noticed the biggest irony of gameroom? So it emulates all of these old old video games which you could easily run on your mobile phone. And yet I cant install it on my laptop (which easily runs warcraft 3, the first 2 seasons of sam and max, and other fairly modern games) because my laptop doesnt support shadow shader 3. Really? Surely the whole point of this is so you can play missile command on your netbook while out at work. Or something. 
I was interested in this. Now I'm looking into getting MAME. 

Posted by MeatSim

Video pinball with extra holes where you flippers can't reach that's just devious.

@Daveyo520:  I feel you made the right choice
Posted by buckybit

Oh God! I remember playing Missile Command on an Arcade with a trackball. How many years ago was this?

Gameroom is and was designed exclusively in mind for the Xbox 360... how can you download it on your laptop?

Because Gameroom is PC compatible and a lot of the games would work better on a PC

Gameroom was made to be fully compatible between the two. You can buy games either for the 360 or pc or buy them for both (at a slightly higher fee).  
If you have it on both you can keep highscores and game saves (or at least the original idea was to keep game saves) across the platforms allowing you to play some missile command at home, go to work, continue missile command during lunch, play again at home. 
But as I said the unnecessary high barrier for entry means you cant run gameroom on a lot of computers like barebones netbooks or low end laptops/computers.

Ah, Skiing.  Terrible then, even worse now.
 
As for Video Pinball, I would have MUCH preferred Midnight Magic, also for the 2600.  Now that was a great pinball game.

Oh is that so...? 
 
Well that's a bummer then.

Remember the "Eat that frog dick Timmy! Eat it!" quote from Grandma's Boy? I think they were playing frog bog.
