Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Geometry Wars] 2D shape VS. 2D shapes is now 2D shape VS. 3D shapes!

shit hot trailer

that one arcade shooter for the 360 that totally rocked now has a sequel! why should you buy this?

* 6 modes of play!
* 4 player multiplayer, competitive or cooperative (4 ships or you can have two guys controlling one ship!)
* achievements that are not as hard as the first game's but still nerve wracking and crazy!
* high scores! this just in, moriveth needs to step up his game.
* new enemies for you to hate!
* also its prettier than the first one

so if you have it, post your gamertag so we can play some multiplay! or so that you can add others in the thread and watch your "awesome high score" get crushed

    I am so bad at geometry wars. I can survive up too 100,000 points I think it is. Then the game just becomes impossible. I refuse to believe that there is any way to pass that.

    I tried playing the original on my best mates Xbox for about ten minutes - after a while I was just randomly flying in any direction, I couldn't make out a damn thing! Colours, sparkles, my burning eyes! I guess you get used to it and proceed to not suck at it with some more playtime...

    actually this game's scoring is different

    100,000 in the old one is like 1,000,000 in this one

    scores get way higher the longer you last

    Well, I only got the first score achievement for the first one, so that''s the best I ever did.

    is that the acheivement where you can't shoot for a minute?

    working on that helped me improve on the game as a whole a ridiculous amount.

    that was pacifism in the first game

    now there's a game mode called pacifism where you can't shoot at all, and wax on/wax off require you to run your ship along the edge of the track once, and then one more time for wax off

    its hard to do with 200 blue diamonds on your tail

    I don't know if they upped the neon in this game or what, but fuck am I having a hard time seeing anything. Everything bleeds into everything else waaaay too much.

    I had a tough time with the first one, but could usually manage, even if the tiny ones would occasionally sneak by and fuck me up.

    But this one - oof. The best I've done on the demo was around two million. I feel like that figure should be much higher, but I'm having a dickens of a time seeing shit.

    not saying that means you need to be excellent, just trying to remember

    Would turning up the contrast and sharpness, and reducing the brightness of your screen help at all? I had the same problem trying to play the first one, and when I watched that video of the new one my glasses straight melted off my face...

    It was, yeah.

    And I had one of the higher scores in the group - 250k or so, I think? I can do way better (My current best is just shy of two mil), but I was still relatively inexperienced then.

    Fuck yeeeeeeees.

    Will this be hitting the Wii, as well? Cause the Galaxies was surprizingly fun and reducing the graphics by a notch cuts down on the eyeball-melting.

    pacifism is somehow the mode where people are scoring the most points

    a mode where you do not shoot, and only get points by flying through gates, is giving many people the most points

    aaaaaaaaaagh

    Oh man, I need to try this when I get home

    When is the new dashboard update happening? I want to be able to tell my Xbox to download things while I'm not at home

    Is everybody still playing the trial, or are people shelling out for the whole thing?

    Edit: Oh wait, the trial only has one mode, so I guess you're all playing the full thing

    Man, I just paid off my credit card

    Who can I add to my friends list so I can get more scores to try and beat? Moriveth was the only dude on my list with the game, so I made it my mission to beat all his scores :)
