To Underworld and back again

[singlepic=40,160,90,,left]The story of one character’s trip across the wastes…

Imagine for a moment – a book that writes itself. All you would need to be is that character, be placed in that world, have it be an interesting setting that you can interact with on many levels, and the ‘story’ would flow from that point.

You might still stumble into the occasional quest that starts suddenly, but you can always back off – no one is forcing you do it, or even complete them.

My visits included a couple of Targets, Wal Marts, Best Buy, Circuit City, and even a Gamestop. Not one place had a single 360.

Press release after the jump!

Zuma: Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360

The first time I played Zuma was on the PC, where much like the Xbox 360 version, the gameplay is simple yet challenging. By the time I reached the second level I was hooked on Zuma’s addictive gameplay.
