Xbox 360 Arcade

posted by Anonymous on - last edited - Viewed by 924 users
Actually, everybody is talking about porting Sam & Max to the WIiiiii, but seriously, isnt there a better machine to port it to even easier? YES there is, a Xbox 360 with XNA is probably the best way to port this game (although i bet the Wii also has great porting abilities).

This would be THE Arcade game everybody would buy (atleast all with some comic/adventure craving).


So please F.T.L.O.S&M port this to the Crossbox!!!!!



PS! Sorry if this topic has been up earlier, i did a quick search and couldnt find much of it! !DS

    I have to say I think the Wii is a much better fit. Point and Click games are heavily mouse dependent, and they either require a complete UI makeover, or they handle in a very clumsy fashion without one.

    For examples, try playing any of the old scumm titles without a mouse. It can be done, but it's not really enjoyable. Alternatively, see games like Cannon Fodder on the SNES, it was a port of a game originally for the Amiga, and was one of the few titles with support for the SNES mouse (released with Mario Paint). It handles just like the Amiga original with the mouse, but is quite cludgy and unresponsive without it (although admittedly, it is an action game).

    If it was available there, and no Wii version was released, I would probably buy Sam and Max on XBL Arcade. But I'll take a Wii port in preference any day. Also, I'd argue that Sam and Max doesn't really mesh well will the Xbox 360's base, which from my observations tend to be pretty heavily action gamers. I'm not saying there are no people who would like Sam and Max and have an Xbox 360, far from it, as I am one, but I think we're in the minority.

    Well actually, i think the playerbase of the 360 is more like the "pc" community , moreso than the Nintendo or Sony crowds.

    Almost all people that i know with 360s (a couple of young kids excepted) , has been pc gamers for atleast a decade. The Gamecube people i know, really hasnt even played pc games and as for the PS owners i know, they wouldnt touch a pc with a ten foot pole for gaming. (MS aversions perhaps).
    The 360 is far more "western" in style and games than the PS or the GC/Wii.

    As for the question if people with 360s are mainly actiongamers, id have to disagree, as the 360 currently has plenty more to offer (although its a little lacking in the rpg/adventure department).
    I mainly bought my xb360 for playing racinggames and for the XBL arcade. I cant think of one single game for the wii or gc that gets me excited (come on guys, most of you know that the gc/wii is the "kids" consoles of the bunch compared to ps/xb with a much stronger emphasis on the crowd 14-)


    Just my 55 cents on the issue!

    Sorry if this piece is poorly written, wrote it on coffee break.

    Super Smash Bros. Melee (or Brawl for Wii). There aren't many games, you are right, but that one is a pure classic. There is hardly a better multiplayer game than SSB.

    And for the Wii as being a kids console, I wouldn't bet big money on it just yet. Things change - but with GC you're absolutely right.
  • There will also be racing games for the Wii. And it's not a console for kids, just like Gamecube isn't just for kids. You could also say that Sam & Max is for kids because they're cartoon characters, but the line between what's for kids and what's for adults isn't as sharp as you make it out to be. Sure, Gamecube had a lot of E-rated games, but also M-rated games. And E-rated games aren't always just for kids. [/nintendofanboy]

    True what you say guys!
    But Nintendo themselves has said (at least for the GC) that their main audience they were aiming for was under the age of 14. Of course older people are buying the console as well, as younger people buy 360 and ps:s (aiming for older main audience). Sorry if i offended some people here. I myself am going to try the wiiiiiiiii as soon as my cousins kids buy one, and if i find the gadget appeal of their new controller to be lasting and the games fun, ill buy one myself aswell (age 28).

    So if u ask me, please make S&M available on 360 AND the wiiiiiiii. (but 360 is most important one for me).
  • Well, you didn't offend me, but it's just that Nintendo has always had a special place in my gaming life, and I get a bit defensive when people say Nintendo is for kids. Of course it is for kids as well as adults, just like the 360 can be used by everyone. And it'd be great to see Sam & Max on the 360 as well, even though I won't get one. The more platforms it's on, the merrier. B-)

    I like Nintendo as well, but you can't deny that Gamecube targeted mainly kids. It's a fact, not an opinion. That didn't prevent me from getting one though.

    Nintendo has been for kids. But it just might change this time around.

    Did Nintendo specifically market it towards kids? Sure, people ended up seeing the Gamecube as a kids console, but that doesn't mean Nintendo had that intention. And I'd say that Nintendo has shaken off the "for kids" image with the DS. They're continuing that trend (of appealing to people of all ages) with the Wii.
