You can create your own puzzle/level in Boom Blox, but I can't imagine how a Puzzle Quest type would even be possible. You could possibly knock out blocks which would cause other blocks that react with each other to touch and explode, but that is about it.

Boom Blox overall is a great game though. If you ever play with more than one person at your house, it is a MUST own for the Wii system.

Zack & Wiki is the other overlooked game on the Wii that is probably in the MUST own category. Especially if you like puzzlers. Of all the games I had on my Wii, Zack & Wiki and Super Mario World are the ones I miss the most.

Speaking of games...I'll be looking out for your scores tonight on Geometry Wars 2. I'm currently going bonkers trying to get those last few achievements.

The Sci-Fi Sequel? Heh, I don't know if I will or not, I enjoyed Puzzle Quest, but it was alot of repititions by the end.. I hear the new one is suppost to be based off of "Hexic". I own the hexic. I didn't own the bejewelled.

I don't know if this is true or not, but does Boom Blox have a version of Puzzle Quest with its Puzzle system? I heard a rumor that there was. Game may be worth buying if it goes down in price.

Yeah, it does take a while. I saw someone online saying that you could beat it in 10 hours or 15 if you went for all the achievements. I laughed on the inside. I highly doubt that would be possible.

You think you'll pick up the sequel? I believe it'll be out this Fall and set in space. The board is supposed to be set up differently too.

Finally beat the Regular Version a month ago. It takes forever, mostly because you start trying to make godlike items. I have a few, but I would spend a day or more working on one to get. It was fun, and interesting, though I doubt I'll ever replay it due to the long hours it takes to level your guy up/build equipment/seige towns/travel to your quests/train mounts/etc/etc.

Good timing, they released the expansion on 7/23. It costs 700 points and contains 4 new classes, bigger map area, 25 new quests, 40 more items and raising the level cap to 60. Not to mention 3 new achievements!

I'm still trying to finish the regular part, but plan on trying this out to...a great game indeed.

How far along are you on the regular quest? Hey, and what is your gamertag too?

Puzzle Quest will now be cheaper on xbox arcade starting this Wednesday. The new price will be 800 MS points ($10). Well worth every penny and then some!

i've never heard of Lost Cities - but that looks pretty cool...might have to give that one a try

I just picked up River City Ransom on the Virtual Console so that might have already filled my quota for the week!

As for xbox arcade games, my most played are Geometry Wars and Pinball FX. One of my other favorites is Castlevania S. of the Night. It is like classic Castlevania, plus some RPG elements, plus some Metroid like exploring, plus some fighting game special power moves. It is a MUST buy for 800 pts.

Of the games you listed, I like Worms and Uno. Worms is funny with some good online play and you can name your worms (I have serial killers and playwrights). Uno is good to chill out to after some FPS action. I'm amazed at how many people are online playing Uno.

Well, I lurbes puzzle quest, but I get tired of playing the same puzzle game... so I hasn't played in a bit - but I go back every once in a while.

And, as for hexic.. I got the black pearl, but the flower of pearls is impostidable for me emoticon .

Lets see on Arcade I also like Uno and Zuma is ok but I prefer it on PC with a mouse. Worms is fun but I hassn't played in so long that I'm having to go back thru the challenges and I'm not as good as I used to be LOL

I guess that would be the benefit of Hexic 2. You can play against each other in that. Either online or with your hubby. They change a few things up though, like adding powerups or something, but it is basically the same. But you are right, it would be nice if they had something like Halo's movie capture that you could post on xbox.com or something.

They kinda come together... but you have to be very careful or you can make your stars and then they can vanish if the meet in the wrong shape! I hate when that happens...

I haven`t managed to make a star of blackpearls though. It would be cool if we could watch each other play online... two heads are better than one (as long as both have their respective bodies!)

If you *think* you can do something, or that you cannot, either way, *you are right*

I'm with your hubby, can't make a black pearl for anything. I thought I was doing good having 3 or 4 star flowers (forget name of them). I was doing the star walking routine, but just couldn't figure out how to get it to come together.

Um, yeah I checked your score out on Hexic. I am a little embarrassed now about my score. Nice job.

I have no idea how, but I managed to beat Hexic. Still ranking 22,000... sucks! :p

I didn`t get Hexic 2 either... so many other games luring around in my house already. I should check out Lumines!

Can you add points to your account via the marketplace on your dashboard? Or via xbox.com? Otherwise, you could try ebay.uk. I got a points card through ebay once and they e-mailed me the code.

I like Hexic too. Haven't played Hexic 2 outside of the demo. For the first one, once I'm in your friends list you can see how I rate score wise. I have yet to get a black pearl.

If you like Hexic, have you tried Lumines? My wife and I have had many head-to-head battles in this game. She usually wins too.

We did and you are right. Buried deep in the wrong section thankfully. The big news is that the sequel was announced yesterday.

Didn't we already have a review of this game? I think it was posted in the wrong section already.

Not sure how many of you have caught this one on Xbox Arcade, but this is a very nice game that "appeals to casual and hardcore gamers alike". It is a nice mix between a puzzle game (flip blocks, match three or more) and a solid RPG (spells, equipment, buy stuff, gold, experience). For 800 MS points, you will get all of your monies worth and then some.

In addition, they are making another Puzzle Quest game. The one above is set in old times with swords and spells. In the Fall, there will be more of a Sci-Fi based one that includes space fleets and gravity.
