    Get in there :clap: I am struggling for games at the moment with this little dry spell. So much so that I have just ordered Condemed from Gameplay for 12 quid.

    These two great additions to XBLA are fantastic - are you watching PSN ????

    Bring them on ! :clap:

    It's been a long old wait, but it finally looks like the flood gates have opened!!

    Now I just start moaning about how much money it is costing me! ;)

    Found an image of Eets Chowdown, haven't had a go of it yet as I'm at work til 5, but it looks interesting at least!

    Reminds me of something inbetween Loco Roco and Worms for some reason. Probably plays nothing like either of them! :)

    Just been playing Pinball & make no mistake it is stunning, like how you can host a private video chat while your playing. Anyone who likes pinball or has played Pro Pinball will love this, WELL worth 800 pts IMHO. :thumbsup:

    I'm having a problem with Eets: Chowdown though.

    I keep being told there is a problem, and it needs to download again.

    Have tried just redownloading without deleting from hard drive and with deleting from hard drive, but keep getting the same message?

    Think that's quite reasonable really, considering how much you used to pay for the Amiga pinball games and how much you'd pump into a proper machine in an arcade.

    Especially if this is as good as has been stated, it'll be addictive as hell, a proper old school "high score" game if ever there was one :smashin:

    I'm assuming that's because they'll sell you more as DLC at some point.

    Still, beats playing Space Cadet Pinball in Windows ;)

    Definately going to d/l this after work.

    Anyone remember Sonic Spinball? I used to love that game!

    The tables it shows you in that trailer are available when you purchase the game.

    It does have an option in the menu for downloadble contenet, but there is nothing available at the moment.

    Heads-up everyone, Eets: Chow Down is back up!

    Looking forward to this one & downloading now.

    Wasn't too keen on the Pinball one, used to love the old Digital Illusions one on the Amiga which I've seen a few people mention here but I don't think I'd be bothered playing this type of game much anymore.

    I have Metroid Pinball on the DS which is good but I rarely play either. Only payed somethng like £4.50 delivered for that though(without the box) so was worth that.
