    Noticed a few achievement sites are now listing Ms Pacman for XBLA.

    I just have to ask... why?! It's virtually identical to Pacman, as are the achievements by the look of it. Bet they still haven't incorporated a 2 player mode either :thumbsdow

    Why not? There have been loads of "new" releases during the past month - time to redress the balance with some more retro stuff. :devil:

    Ms. Pacman is a bit different to Pacman - there are different mazes, smarter ghosts, the fruit doesn't just appear in the same place each time... and of course our hero sports some fetching red lippy and a bow :smashin:

    On a more serious note - anybody heard anything about todays (non?) release?

    I was wondering the same, I had a feeling they'd be kicking off 2007 with a good one but at the moment it looks like they might not be kicking it off yet full stop:confused:

    That's right, it enters through one of the tunnels, moves around the maze and exits from another tunnel.

    I've got no problem with Ms. Pacman, it is certainly different enough for me. It's like saying why release Forza 2 when we already have Forza, they're both car games.

    Looks like this might be available today - just been announced on Major Nelsons site... so it's either a day early or perhaps we are getting 2 releases this week? Either way it's a definite purchase for me :)

    I think it's being released today to avoid clashing with the new Gears Of War maps, so don't get your hopes up for Worms just yet

    This certainly bodes well for a Worms release tomorrow.

    It really is Ms Pacman only this week, one of the sites said that this was the best week to release it as everyone will be distracted by the new GOW maps tomorrow to even care, then we have Heavy Weapons next week, at least there is some good stuff in the pipe line at the moment

    Anybody else played it yet? I always preferred this to Pacman, mainly due to the variety offered by the different mazes. It was always much more challenging.

    I see you managed to find time to not only download it but also get 3/4 of the achievements already :)

    The joys of working at home :thumbsup: . As for the achievements, they aren't difficult being the same as Pacman. The only challenging one is the level 21 achievement, although I suspect that you can get it using continues as you could with Pacman.

    Aha.... that explains everything, had always thought you popped home for lunch or something ;)

    Wish I could work at home... but then I'd probably never get anything done... :rolleyes:

    I bought this last night but not had a chance to play it so far - though I really should "finish" Pacman first :suicide:

    That is what I used to do, the working from home is a recent and temporary thing.
