no demo for this game!

#1 Posted by buft (3317 posts) -

I dont want to fork over 800 points for something like this before i play it, neither xbox live or xbox.com have a demo for this game, is this a glitch in the machine or is this the first xbla game that wont get one? hard to believe the latter because i thought a demo was one of the must haves on XBLA releases

I was able to download a trial so if it was glitched they've already fixed it.

Chances are the trial was just delayed behind them putting up the full game. When I downloaded it just a few minutes ago I was given the option to download the trial, being a huge 40k fan I opted to just snag the full game right away. Game is pretty fun if you like dual stick shooters, liberal check points too, which was nice as it can be a tad difficult at times.

nope as long as twisted pixel gets your money and make more games thats good enough, honestly some of the changes they made to the game like the slide poles and cannons(donkey kong barrel) make the game a lot more frantic and interesting. im at world 2 and even the overworld map is fun to navigate 
 
to stay on topic here, i just tried the uk store on xbla and no demo still

ya I wanted to buy this game for the same reason and those unlockables look so crazy that it just might warrant my purchase

I checked the canadian store so that's probably why it's not there for you

The demo was great but I'm so pissed off at where they popped up the "buy full game" message I'm just not going to but it on principle.

Silly topic is silly. You could have just waited a few hours if you thought it was a glitch :|

Support good games and don't buy Splosion Man 2. They already ripped enough people off with Comic Jumper - that is to say more than one person bought it... probably.

This stuff is always a temporary glitch.  Publishing on XBLA REQUIRES a trial version.

@fentonalpha: You had FUN with a demo and just because they limited it, you're not going to buy it? That's really, REALLY dumb.
