Game Room hits Xbox LIVE, totally borked (Update) photo



Microsoft's neat little virtual arcade space, "Game Room," has hit Xbox LIVE and Games for Windows today. That's the good news, I guess.

Here's the bad news: Users are reporting that it just doesn't work. Reports are coming in from all over the Internet (and verified by me) that you simply can't load the damned thing on the Xbox 360; the progress bar gets stuck. So right now, I guess it's just "Room," right? The Windows version is broken, too, giving users an installation error.

Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson says it's aware of the problem, and that it's being investigated. But in the meantime, here's an awesome Xbox 360 workaround discovered by a NeoGAF forum user:

1. Sign in
2. Load Game Room and press start.
3. When Loading hangs, press Guide, press X to sign out.
4. Remove network cable/usb for Wifi.
5. Sign in with profile.
6. Press Start and press B when it says you must be signed in XBL to use all features.
7. Room loaded, it asks you if you want to sign into XBL to get most of features (Note this is the second time its asked you). Attach Wifi/Network cable and wait till you get the green light (On Wifi).
8. Connect to Live.
9. Play.

Yeah, no thanks. I'll wait for the fix. I don't need to play Centipede that bad.

Pokémon fighting game coming to arcades first for 'the challenge'

The announcement of Pokkén Tournament came as a surprise to most of us. We knew some sort of Pokémon fighter was coming, but the news that Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada was in charge was an awe...more

Bandai Namco is making Pokkén Tournament with older fans in mind

I get the sinking feeling it'll be a good long while before we get our hands on Pokkén Tournament, Bandai Namco's Pokémon fighting game for arcades (and probably Wii U). Until then, here's another quote about th...more

Pix the Cat is out now and its Nostalgia mode is sweet

For the same reasons I was excited as heck for Cuphead, I am loving Pix the Cat's Snake-like Nostalgia Mode for reminding me of Felix the Cat and 20s animation in general.  And then you realize everything else about this game is nuts and that it's just been released for free for PlayStation Plus members so I'm going to go download that jam right now before my subscription lapses. more
