Next week, according to Wikipedia.

And the Bionic Commando demo is supposed to be up right away. As in... maybe right now?

You forgot to mention the big news of the week. Marvel v. Capcom 2 is coming to XBox Live Arcade and PSN!!! The demo is coming out on Thursday. I cannot wait to bring my Dan/Servbot/Amingo team online and watch them get destroyed by Magneto/Sentinel/Cable team over and over.

I hope you have a PS3 - the demo isn't coming to Xbox Live (which is why it isn't in the Xbox thread).

But since there's a post here I can reply to, I will take this time to mention that Sorry! is out on the Xbox Live Arcade today, apparently. That's just as good, right?

I can finally put my Dreamcast away as it is the only game I play on it. I guess my color guide will get more hits again on gamefaqs.

The REAL question...as always, will the game play well using the 360 controller?

I'd love to find a functional 360 controller with a usable D-Pad.

You could use the Capcom arcade stick.

If they'd make their supply/demand ratio less "early PS2/Wii" like.

In terms of the 360 controller, I hear this kind of sentiment all over. While I do see where you're coming from since I got used to playing games on a d-pad gratis Nintendo, a little practice and the controller issue ISN'T. Also, the 360 d-pad ISN'T, it's another anolog stick with a different head in the shape of a d-pad, whereas a traditional d-pad has sensors under each directional.

I play Street Fighter 4 and SoulCaliber 4 with the plain old 360 controller with the analog stick, no less, and I can't complain at all. Sure, it took some getting used to, but after 30 minutes to an hour it's no sweat (and I wonder how I ever played fighters before without since I'm better with the stick than the d-pad now).

Also, I'm not going to be complaining about the brokenness of Magneto/Sentinel/Storm or Cable. I won't refuse to use them either; they may be 'jank' or 'cheap', but they are a part of the game itself. Adding additional rules to the game such as not using them and I'm no longer playing MvC2, I'm playing Calvinball. This, of course, is all null and void if Capcom did what they did with SSF2T HD Remix and patch it up for more balance.

I hope the demo isn't close to the final version. I want three punch/kick buttons, not two. Omega Red, among others, will be a little limited.

It looked really cleaned up and I had no problems with the PS3 controller and SF4 fight stick. It actually played ALOT smother on the stick.

Unless they remove the random star changing events and bring back the Running of the Bulb, I'm note sure I can commit to that game. Probably will get Castlevania and the other two VC games this week.
