I notcied no stutter in framerate when in single player smooth as butter at 1080i looks great
in multiplayer there was a tiny bit of lag but barely noticable...

Went to System blade -> Computers and disconnected both MCE and Windows Media Connect computers whose connections were open.
Clearly the game has a bug where it tries to hammer the computers in the list and ends up stuttering like crazy when the computers arent responding!
Now I'm happy, silky smooth gaming, even in multiplayer (normal network issues aside)!

As for Best Buy... I buy giftcards off eBay for 85% face value and then use them to buy games and points at Best Buy. It's like paying the old $50 a game (especially when I have a $10 off coupon ).

I got first place on the leaderboards in several levels. I'm sure they've been wiped out by now as the game has been gaining popularity. I've seen you in a few top ten spots also, Killa.
I haven't found it to be a very difficult game. If you were good at Marble Madness, this shouldn't be too difficult for you. There are a lot of shortcuts you can take to reach the goals. An easy way to squeeze your way through bumpers is by holding the right thumbstick so that you see everything from above. You can jump over bumpers, too.
So far, all of my times are well under par. I'm on level 38, but I need to finish up some work. I'll pick it up again tomorrow. I still gotta check out multiplayer.

Also no stuttering for me. Only thing i dont like is the 5 minutes lame trance loop for music.

Anything with the ice in the lvls screws me up bad. This game brings back memories for sure. I remember throwing my old nintendo control a couple times for marble madness. I wanted to throw my 360 control a bunch to but I cant afford another right now. I wish they would invent unbreakable controls. That would rock.

I received Marble Blast Gold with my Mac Mini so I knew exactly what I could expect from this game. This game is pretty much the same as Marble Blast Gold with improved graphics and new boards. There are some things in this game that are visually pleasing such as the glass walls, the ice, the light reflection, and the skate park level. For what it is the graphics are really good. The gameplay is awesome. I downloaded this last night and played it for the next 4 hours until I needed to hit the sack. This is game is well worth the cost. I would recommend this game over any other Live Arcade game (except maybe Geometry Wars.)
