Xbox 360 Spring Dashboard Update Is Live!

Just spent the last hour playing around with the new Dashboard update... I like it quite a bit. It's already been talked about ad nauseam, so I won't go into details on what it contains. A word to the wise though: don't try the Windows Live Messenger feature if you don't have a USB keyboard or that new texting attachment. Using the on-screen keyboard leaves much to be desired in a real-time conversation.

What I'm not happy with, however, is the new Double Dragon game on Xbox Live Arcade. Apparently, it's a port of the original arcade game, and not the version from the NES. Very disappointing. Oh well, I was still planning on buying a Wii at some point anyways.

    No offense (everyone's Nostalgia Cloud is different) but doesn't the NES version of Double Dragon totally suck compared to the arcade original?

  • I think I have you added to my friends on there Robert -- upgraded and it told me one of my contacts had a gamercard.

    Why is the DD port so bad? Was the arcade one no good? I heard they had actually done a hi-def version and I am quite looking forward to checking it out.

  • It's just not like the NES version, and that's the only one I ever played. And I played it for hours and hours. It looks fantastic, it just doesn't play the way I'm used to.
