    My god, Bloons looks spastic in action. I love TDs but would probably wait for a sale on this one after picking up Riptide and Chime last week.

    Bloons is a day 1 purchase for me. Any price. I have the paid deluxe version on PC and it's one of the best TD games I've played.

    Does anyone know if Bloons will have online co-op and not just couch co-op?

    Oh man, I remember playing the first Bloons 8 or 9 years ago as a fun little flash game. I will pick up TD5 at some point and give it a shot.
    Ha ha, charade you are!

    Same man, me and my buddies would always play Bloons in the computer lab in school during class, trying to see who would get the super monkey first. Good times...

    For anyone who is considering picking up Bloons and is new to the game, a tip, BUILD YOUR BANANA FARMS!!! You can also play the game at the ninjakiwi website free right now to try it out to see if you like it. A shame to lose progress but I'll be migrating to Xbox.

    That's a great point. I'll definitely be picking it up too. I would love to see more games under the $10 CAD (or £5) price point.

    Many of the $1-3 indie games on the 360 were great games. I would love to see a similar selection on the One, but I highly doubt prices will ever be that low again. $5 - $10 is a good price range though. It's cheap enough to not break the bank, but pricey enough to keep out shovelware garbage.

    Ghost Blade was pretty good on the Dreamcast. It was released in 2015--fourteen years after the Dreamcast was supposedly discontinued. smile Looking forward to it.

    I picked up the preorder for eekeemoo. It looks interesting and hopefully not a painful completion haha

    Not sure about any of them, does Ghost Blade have just a tiny screen in the middle...if so, that's even less appealing.

    Bloons looks manic, but there seems to be a lot of excitement for it.

    Eekeemoo is tempting at that price, and I like the style, but combat may get a bit samey...depends how much there is.

    Awesome to hear about BTD! As seems to be the case with many others, I too put many hours into the earlier titles on PC and iOS!

    Anyone who enjoys tower defence games will enjoy Bloons. It has a very gentle difficulty curve, so although it looks manic it makes sense very fast!

    Although I got it for the PS4 not XB1 because it was cheaper, Ghost Blade HD is great fun

    I've never heard of any of these, but the public support for Bloons might coerce a buy out of me. Everyone seems super ecstatic over it's release on Xbox.

    I love Bloons TD5 for iOS. I wish they would release this as TD6 with new maps and towers. It's multiplayer online for iOS so id hate it if they left that part out for xbone.

    It just sucks that each map pretty much gives you the same same variety of bloons to pop for each round. I would be nice if they made it a little more random.

    Id love to have Kingdom Rush TD make its way to xbox as well.
