    Same with me and Home.

    And This looks very Rare-like

    I am excited about the 2D basis of Home and I’d be excited abotu the 2D element of this, in the new style. Blades were always pretty busy to be honest. This looks nice and simple.

    I have to admit it looks good.

    But what is the point of them.

    Is it just a sim type thing that you play with or is there more?

    Just in case anyone thinks I am knocking it I actually have the 360.

    It just looks more like a kids thing than anything else.

    Which is fair enough I suppose.

    It’s part of the new 360 primetime channel thing… and supposedly certain games will use them.

    Now that sounds interesting what is that?

    And more importantly will it be available in Ireland and UK.

    They’re quite nicely animated, but… hmm. And those plinky-plonky sound effects… no. Just… no.
