Win or fail?

Btw was undertow any good? I'm drowning on so many games I missed picking it up.

    I think I was one of four people in the entire world to buy Missile Command, and even though I rarely play it I'm yet again intrigued by a remixed ancient classic for a measly $5. Dunno, though; I should really just put the points toward Mutant Storm Empire instead. As much as I like shmups, the XBLA is starting to get so inundated with them that I should really branch out.

    I thought I would like Undertow more than I actually did; it's kind of fun in that Soldat kind of way but I've always been more of a deathmatch man than a team-based "hold X number of key positions for Y seconds" gamer.

    And isn't Omega Five supposed to be coming out soon?

    I'm cautiously optimistic about this title, mostly because I have an extra 400 points left over on my account after picking up Puzzle Quest & Mutant Store Empire.

    As for Undertow, it got really good reviews (3 reviews ranging from 87-90% on Gamerankings), but I haven't tried it myself since I was gone all week for Thanksgiving vacation.

    I'm pretty partial to a slice of Asteroids, so, I doubt I'll be able to resist.

    Not bought an Arcade game since Puzzle Quest ate a couple weeks of my gaming time.
