I was looking around the internet just a few days ago for a checklist of the not so common tests we might do before submitting our games for review to the Community Games Channel. I came across this post in the XNA forums which is just what I was looking for. I recommend you bookmark it if you are planning to publish anything to the Community Games channel.

As the time draws nearer to my game being finished, I’m finding it easier to procrastinate. I’ve caught up on the new show XNA Roundup on youtube and I particularly liked the look of one of this weeks games ArkX which is essentially a clone of Arkenoid or Breakout as I knew it. You can catchup on the show here http://xnaroundup.blogspot.com/
This game kind of goes against my XBCG moral’s of not playing the stupidly simple game or totally not appropriate game and this falls under the category of the former by name association alone. Which isn’t fair i know, but it’s just how I and many others feel about where XBCG is really going, however this weeks XNA Roundup has sure caught my attention and I am going to try ArkX out for sure, along with a couple of others I saw in the earlier episodes.
I recommend you subscribe to the iTunes podcast or just favourite his youtube page, there are a couple of games that just hit Community Games playtest that look really exciting from first glance, so they should be hitting the Marketplace sometime soon.
