Games with Gold

So on this month's Games with Gold for Xbox One we have #IDARB

I'll be honest i'm not really sure how to describe this game, it's mental but addictive. Managed to get some 3v3 gameplay at the weekend and it just gets more manic for every player added.

I would describe the game as a cross between Pong, Speedball, Sensible Soccer and Smash Bros.

Below extract is from Major Nelson's blog

"Built with the input of thousands of crazed internet gamers, #IDARB (an acronym for 'It Draws a Red Box') is a chaotic 8-player eSport jumping future arena ball game. Create characters, teams, team logos, tournaments, even your theme music, in this highly customizable experience complete with disruptive 'hashbombs' which dynamically change the game itself via Twitch and Twitter! IDARB supports up to 8 simultaneous local players, and up to 4 vs. 4, head-to-head online matches."

On the 360 this month we have Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (from 1st to 15th of February) and then Sniper Elite v2 (16th - 28th February)

I have played Brothers and found it an interesting game and concept, you control both Brothers (one with left stick, one with right stick), it's quite short but definitely worth a play.

Sniper Elite I've never played and chances are I won't even bother to download, this may be a great game, just doesn't seem like my cup of tea. It scored between 65% and 70% in reviews at release.

RtM - IDARB is mental, I play a lot of Smash Bros on the Wii U and that is fast paced and frantic, compared to IDARB it's a walk in the park.
It's hard to describe but I had great fun playing all last Friday night.
The 1st time me and my mates made a couple of passes that finished with a goal the joy was unreal.

I may give Sniper Elite a download when it's out, but I think I need to delete something to make room for it, not sure what I can remove that I never play

Following a slow-mo sniper round into a body that goes x-ray allowing you to see the skeletal structure and organs get destroyed is immensely satisfying.
