Help us put Bubble Bobble on XBLA
It was a month and a half ago when we began our series, "That should be on XBLA," in which we pick a classic game that would be a perfect fit for Xbox Live Arcade. The first game we picked was Taito's perennial action puzzler, Bubble Bobble. The idea behind "That should be on XBLA" is to get developers to notice that their games belong on Xbox Live Arcade.

It looks like Taito was listening. Taito's publishing company, Empire Interactive, has a thread running in their forum right now, which reads thusly:

"Hi All

I hope you can help us out with a bit of retro advice, If you were to pay to download a Taito Classic what would your top 3 be ??

Also, without giving the game away :) would online multiplayer be important to you downloading it ??

Come on guys - post your lists and let us know what you want.
"

While the post doesn't directly mention Xbox Live, we're pretty sure that's what this is all about. We're also pretty sure he's talking about Bubble Bobble with that question about online multiplayer. Note to Taito: hell yes, online multiplayer is important!

So, make your voices heard, loyal readers! Registering for Empire Interactive's forums is a snap. Go do it and tell 'em what you want (and don't forget to tell them who sent you). Our list looks like this:
  1. Bubble Bobble
  2. Arkanoid
  3. New Zealand Story
It's not like you can play any Xbox Live today anyway. You might as well do something constructive.
