Bits and bobs again

Firstly, Microsoft included Worms in an announcement of ten new XBLA titles, along with 3 shots - this has been greeted with a mixture of interest and relief; but people still want to know WHEN the title will be out - and it's on the horizon now.

The interview with Gamertag Radio has been cleared to go out, so that will go out soon too... and I'd imagine that means we're good to go with other interviews too, although we're still unable to reveal details such as date/cost. The game is actually out of the test loop and awaiting the full greenlight to go Live, but as mentioned in other posts, if it's ok then we'll pop into the schedule - we don't just go out straight away.

On other things, Leeds Utd won their all-important relegation scrap with Hull 2-1 at Hull's KFC stadium but they still managed to drop a place in the league and went bottom. However, they are now within close distance of the cluster of teams above them - and with 17 games to go to avoid the drop to League 1, it's going to be a nail-biter.

Happy belated 40th birthday.

All this Worms talk is killing me. My 360 broke on Friday and has been sent off to be repaired. I can't stand the thought of Worms coming out while my Xbox is away so I've bought a new one while I wait... Damn you! :)

Are we talking 2 weeks ish, 3 weeks... It's killing me.

We simply can't confirm that right now, the certification/approval does take some time unfortunately.

Ahh, I know. I was just hoping for a hint really :)

Anyways, whenever it comes out I'm sure it will be a huge hit and make the XBox even more fun.

Cheers for all the work you've done over the years. I know a thankyou from an anonymous person doesn't really mean much, but Thankyou none the less.

Well, the thanks are due to a great many people really, certainly not just myself - but cheers for the sentiment.

Hopefully it won't be too much longer before you can play Worms on the 360 anyway.
