New Co-Op Shooter Pokes Fun at 360 Dashboard

Nathan Fouts of Mommy's Best Games, makers of Explosionade and Shoot 1UP,  is a bit disgruntled with Microsoft.  Why you ask?  The new dashboard has way too many ads.  We concur.  But that's not what really makes Nathan mad, no, it's the fact it's almost impossible to find Xbox Live Indie games buried on the marketplace.  So what did he do?  He turned it into a game...within a game.  Enter Game Type.

Let Me Sell You Something

Xbox 360 Metro Dashboard Impressions and Video Tour

"Let me sell you something."  That's the only phrase I can think of when I see the new Xbox 360 Dashboard, which is out now on your console via a free update.  The updated dashboard replaces the "New Xbox Experience" design which came out almost 3 years ago.  The latest iteration puts the dashboard in line with a new design philosophy at Microsoft brought on by Windows Phone 7 called "Metro" - square tiles that bubble up information to the user in a simple and clean design.  There's one problem with the implementation on the Xbox 360 though - it's anything but clean.
