Erik: #alien_hominid_hd I downloaded this game this weekend after a few hours of annoying attempts at putting more points on my Xbox Live account. To keep the story short, let's just say that Xbox Live sucks at supporting credit card payments. Don't change countries, don't change credit cards, or else you won't be able to purchase anything online anymore.

OK, as far as the game is concerned, it looks really amazing, and is fun. I do have a few minor problems with it. The bullets are a little difficult to see at times, and it seems to have a very flat learning curve. I'm about as good now as when I started playing. For $10, it's an amazing deal though, especially if you have an HDTV.

The mini games are really fun. Actually, I've had more fun playing Neutron Ball against my brother than Alien Hominid itself. Mar 4, 07
