Geometry Wars 1 was the first thing I ever downloaded on my 360 when I originally got it. I instantly became obsessed and wasted a fair amount of time blasting gobs of gorgeous colors across the screen. Once I finally past the 1 million mark, I decided to give my thumbs a rest. A rest that lasted a few years.

I downloaded the demo to the second one last night and enjoyed the small amount of play-time they teased me with. Was interesting to find out that your gun no longer upgrades and your multiplier stays with you even when you die.

Still debating whether to buy the full version but it seems that you all feel it's worth it. Heck, it might be worth it for the multiplayer alone. Speaking of which, you can't play over Live can you?

I don't have time to turn on my system right now, but the website for the game only mentions offline multiplayer, so I assume that's correct.

The review I read lamented that it didn't have multiplayer over live, which is a sad omission. I suppose (and hope) that it can be patched by an update, but who knows.

yeah, I thought that was very odd to leave out Live support. Ah well, guess I'll actually have to see the people I play with, bummer.

That many objects onscreen at that speed might be a tricky thing to do over Live?

Looking forward to the hyper galaga game that is comming to XBL ( or whatever it is called.)

Looks neat.

I am going to probably buy geo wars 2 in the next couple fo days when I get around to it.

Could very well be. Any lag at all would completely ruin the experience. Although there are more complicate games that are live enabled, not many rely on timing as much as this would.

Well, I'm up to 100 of the 200 gamerscore points. All of the remaining achievements are going to take some real effort. I hate you, Geometry Wars!

Midlife crisis time. Are you going to buy a Mountain Dew Slurpee now or a bag of Fritos?

I had a bag of Fritos earlier!

Is this really the form my midlife crisis is taking?
