Today marks a very sad day for the gamerscore community. Jason Young (Morgon) of MyGamerCard.net has officially announced that MGC will be calling it quits. For over 5 years MGC has been one of the most respected and reliable gamerscore sites on the web and it will surely be missed by many.
MGC is a victim of policy change along with a lack of interest from Microsoft in their community development program. Maintaining the site became an uphill battle that resulted in a loss of time and money over the past year. Jason did what he could to keep the site up and running but after constant setbacks, the obvious decision to discontinue the site had to be made.
One of the great things about Xbox Live Indie Games is that they aren’t as much of a target when they clone gameplay from another title. Enter FishCraft. Developed by Frozen North, FishCraft follows both the story and gameplay of Angry Birds, merely with a different setting. To be fair, Angry Birds is far from the first game in this micro-genre. Games such as Crush the Castle have been around just as long, if not longer. Still, for players unwilling to wait for those furious feathered daredevils FishCraft looks to be be a great budget-priced alternative. FishCraft is available now on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 80MSP. You can grab a demo here. Check out the trailer after the jump.
