Let's say your game shipped with a horrendous multiplayer bug that prevented many people from connecting to online co-op sessions. Would you fix it? Would you fix it quickly? If you're part of Wanako
and Sierra Online, and your game is Assault Heroes
for Xbox Live Arcade
, then your answer is clearly "no." Yes, Assault Heroes
was added to the XBLA library last December and played host to a serious co-op problem, namely that co-op games could not be joined
by many people. Now, seven months later, a title update for Assault Heroes
has finally been released
. There's only one problem: you can't download it. In a particularly delicious bit of irony, you are greeted with an error message the moment you accept the update prompt. Oy vey.
Let's hope the Assault Heroes
team gets their ducks in a row and fixes this problem soon.
