The best casino games for Xbox live

May 22nd, 2013

Truth be told, there isn’t much of a market for a full casino experience on the Xbox, or on any home console for that matter. There are some games that contain a small casino style section or have a few casino themed levels, but there really aren’t that many games that are dedicated to the online casino game style. Occasionally a game will be released and there will be an element of the game that revolves around casino games, but one game really pushed it to the limit like no other game before or since has even attempted.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 was one of the premier racing games on the planet. You took part in races, built up your skills and your collection of cars and continued to take on all comers in pursuit of the number one spot. Around six months after its release the company put out a DLC package that offered new races, new houses, new cars and a casino. Not only could you play poker, slots and Blackjack in the hopes of winning more money to upgrade your fleet of tricked out racers, you could play these games with up to 32 people across Xbox Live.

This innovative way of bringing the online casino to the home console made the game moderately popular among players. The only problem was that if you wanted to get to the casino content, you had to play the racing part of the game first. This undoubtedly turned some players off, but the game made a valiant attempt at bringing online casino games, such as those found at http://www.mobilecasinoaustralia.com.au, to the slightly bigger screen. Until a really dedicated online casino game comes along, we’ll just have to make do with Test Drive Unlimited 2, or play our poker on a home computer.

Some of you may have already noticed the new Login/Register box at the top of the site – but wondered why?

Years ago SolidGamers.com had a membership system that allowed people to comment on games, save their favourites so they could easily find them later, etc. We are bringing this back!

You will be able to use your account for competitions too; more info on that soon.

At the moment the system will allow registration and will count your total game plays but nothing more than that; we will roll out more soon!

Flightpath – Great new puzzle game!

May 2nd, 2011

We’ve all heard about global warming and the hole in the ozone layer, so the aim of our new game is to collect all the parcels from around the world in the shortest distance possible!

Apparently your plane will fall apart after 1 million miles (who knew?) so if you want to get on the highscores board you should probably use less than that.
