I was a huge fan of Exo-Squad, an animated show that’s a hidden gem of North American animation that I strongly recommend. So I’ve been eagerly waiting for “Blocks and Big Robots” to drop off the new releases list so that I could play it, keeping to my self-appointed rule to only profile games that are not shown in a high-profile fashion on the Dashboard or the Xbox website.
