    Thanks for posting the Worms screen shot, that's the first one I've seen.

    I can't wait for Worms, SotN and Alien Hominid (a game I look forward to but have never played; I hear great things though).

    I almost put in SotN last night to play around with the shield glitch (I forget what its called). :D
    Completely breaks the game but its still fun as hell to do it.

    Golf looks nice as well...somewhat like Hot Shots which in its own right is a very fun Playstation series.

    Looks like I'll be getting a Gold subscription + a boatload of MS points soon. ;)

    (These are all slated as Feb. releases, for those who are wondering.)

    Funnily enough Catan isn't my kind of game, but I'd like to play that :eek:

    Worms? Bleh. Sorry, I have no faith that any Worms games will be as innovative and fun as 2/Armageddon (I say that 'cuz IMO Worms 2 showed us something nice, Armageddon took us there).

    Alien Hominid? Urgh! I have this for the original Xbox. Looks even more like a cheap flash game. Is it still an absolute rip off of Metal Slug? It's been a while but I think the original Xbox game looked less-Flash like than the 360 version.

    I love mini golf games :) arcade-y ones that behave more like fancy Snooker games than actual golf... gold :D

    Well considering they are taking Worms back to 2D I have complete faith in it. I mean... 2 was the last one, with Armageddon and World Party being basically "expansions".

    This one is more (or less) of the same... they are reducing the weapons down a bit, iirc, taking out some that aren't used much or unbalance the game... I'm sure it'll pretty much be like WWP.

    The XBox live Worms is the EXACT same as the PSP version, which was pretty good.

    The announced lineup had me really disappointed. The only one I'm somewhat interested in is Symphony of the Night because I'm curious if they added new extras or online play to it. Otherwise I already own the game and I own Alien Hominid. Everything else is bleh.

    Cool! Looking forward to worms and Catan. I for one, would love to see Descent 1 & 2 on XBLA. I miss playing those games at school when I should have been working.:p

    I wanted to get my hands on Castlevania, but I think I've been spoiled by Aria and Dawn's incredibly good animations. I find it hard playing Aria after Dawn... Probably be even worse with SoTN. I'd love to try it some day though but on a much better 2D controller (PS1?).

    I will download Symphony of the Night the moment it is available :)
    None of the other games interest me all that much, but I foresee a LONG session of SotN once I get it :)

    Catan is a fun game, and I'm looking forward to playing a game on Live that isn't dominated by profanities and insults.;)

    Good luck :D

    I thought a golf game (Tiger Woods) would be full of older players, nice and happy playing golf. wrong :D so many racist remarks, so much profanity.

    I'm hoping SOTN on XBLA will drive the price of the PS game down in ebay, so i can play the damn thing.

    How much could SOTN cost? It was a million seller 20 dollar game new at the height of the PS. Used should be no more than 5-10 bucks.
