Xbox LIVE Deal Of The Week: Rock Band No Doubt

Qixingame

Xbox LIVE Gold Members can pick up Rock Band No Doubt “The Singles 1992–2003” Album for only 1200 points this week.

Also this week, new on XBLA…Qix ++ for 800 points. What the hell is Qix ++? A sequel to the 1981 arcade game Qix, which, as the box says, is pronounced “kicks”.

The objective of Qix is to fence off, or “claim”, a supermajority of the playfield. At the start of each level, the playing field is a large, empty rectangle, containing the Qix — a sticklike entity that performs graceful, but unpredictable motions within the confines of the rectangle.

Exciting.
