    Have Hydrophobia. Wonder how it's aged? Remember a lot of hype for it when it came out

    I had hydrophobia. I remember trying it on launch and lost interest. Then a few months later the developer to be fair to them released a free download addressing some of the issues with the game so I tried it again.
    Still didn't finish it.

    I remember Hydrophobia was hyped for how it handled water, then it actually came out and presumably it was terrible. But then they released a patch that fixed most of its issues. That's the word, anyway.

    It's been on sale for a pittance before.

    Edge did a big piece on it back in the day. Alas the game was a proper pos.

    I really enjoyed Hydrophobia at the time. I kind of remember it as being the first 'big' XBLA game (by 'big', I don't mean in terms of reception, obvs, but it seemed like everything else on XBLA at the time was a smaller scale, 2D game).

    Have the Halo Reach map packs always been free or is this a new development?

    What was that thing in Halo 4, single player separately to campaign on big maps with vehicles? Am I imagining it?Was kind of an early GaaS model. Might be thinking about H5 but that was the Warzone MP mode.

    @richardiox yeah, it was called Spartan Ops. Kinda like what you said. They are available on the MCC too, but either way you'll need Xbox Live Gold, even if you wanted to play alone.

    That's it. Cheers enjoyed that mode when the game came out, I should jump back in now all the missions are out, plus the ability to play at 4K60

    Kinda worth it for the Blur cutscenes alone, tbh.

    We really need some stronger hitters. Would it really be that hard to get Tecmo stuff?

    I remember BiA running like turd on 360, so a stable framerate rather than the single figures you sometimes got would be nice.

    Does anyone remember when they announced the new BiA game was going to be wacky like Inglorious Basterds? It quickly got cancelled soon after being announced.

    I do not, but that definitely sounds like something Randy would do.

    I hope not, I picked up a copy of DOA Ultimate on the weekend, and now I'm itching to play some DOA2 again. Not quite enough to hook up the Dreamcast though...

    ?!?

    Road to Hill 30 started it on the PS2 and original Xbox, Earned in Blood followed and then there was the sub par but not terrible Hell's Highway on PS3 and 360.

    Also those handheld, phone and Wii spin offs but they don't count, as you say.

    Right and I said it sucked they didn't continue the series after HH which the ending clearly hinted at and was going to add snow levels
