Orbital bounces off the walls and ends up Xbox Live Deal of the Week

Orbital

Splinter Cell: Conviction may not be showing up on the Marketplace just yet, but the Xbox Live Deal of the Week has at least gone live. Orbital from BiteForge and Microsoft Studios is now on sale for $1.99, down from $2.99.

Orbital is all about shooting orbs into other orbs, destroying them and causing chain reactions. It’s got 3 modes of play, each of which changes the rules and aiming around a bit. The neon graphics are pretty enough. As I stated in our review, I really wanted to like Orbital, but it just never clicked for me. The aiming needs work, the game is unforgiving, and there’s no metagame tying it together. But a lot of people enjoy the game anyway, so you may want to give it a shot too.

Orbital is on sale for $1.99 for one week only. Shoot on over here to the Marketplace to get it.

Why is MS even wasting their time with this crap when Orbital is already released... When SC:C hasn't been released and probably THE most anticipated game in my book and in many others.

What? You slamming a weekly sale? I don't see what's the problem with a live game going on sale

How much space do you have left? If you run out of space, it appears to affect performance...it did for ME anyway =/

Dangit, just did a search and got it... Y'all should go too the forums and add your gamertags to the thread list.

Vallos says:

As am I... Currently at 20%. Damn, talk about hijacking a thread...hahahaha.

Orbital is awesome (can't understand 1st comment, do we really need to rate a game ad "crap" because it is 2 months old, something truly wrong with this generation) ?
Anyway, already have it, was hoping for Farm Frenzy 2 as a DotW, but it's never the ones we're waiting for.

I'd say Farm Frenzy 2 should be DotW here in the next month or so.  I'm waiting for Let's Golf 2, but since it's not published by Microsoft, I may be waiting a while on that one.

I just bought it yesterday... D:
