XBLIGR picks Decimation X3 for its "Top 20 Best Xbox 360 Live Indie Games of 2010".

XBLIGR names Decimation X3 #6 of its "Top 20 Best Xbox 360 Live Indie Games of 2010":

How do you improve on perfection? Decimation X was arguably the most addictive and ideal multiplayer game released on the XBLIG platform in 2009. Now Xona Games has returned with the next iteration and it still slaughters everything around it. The levels are harder, the enemies look a little different, but the song remains the same. Perhaps graphically things look a little more LCD and little less OG Space Invaders, but whatever it is, its sexy. Well take it, for all its worth, and in this case that is a measly eighty pence. Do yourself a favor and jump in headfirst.

The song, actually, is a remake. If you play both games back to back you'll see this.

And I was oblivious to this but, Decimation X, the original game in the series, came in as #4 on XBLIGR's "Top 10 Xbox Live Indie Games of 2009" list:

Holy particle emitters Batman! If you like Space Invaders, and you like glow sticks and maybe water bottles and pacifiers and plush to backpacks, then you literally could not find a more perfect game to suit your cerebellum. Fast and furious shooting to a throbbing trance soundtrack and more flying sparks than your eyes can eat, Decimation X is a space shooter of the highest caliber, and a price that cant be beat by any Arcade game; at 80 MS points, its a complete steal.
