Stickied and changed the title so it'll make sense as more than just a preview thread.

Well, that's not exactly what I mean. Like, for PSN, they usually have updates on Thursday. Occasionally some content breaks that is released earlier or later, but usually Thursday is when things get added. Like, for example, Kal posts the list of what was added every Thursday for the PSN store.

Does MS have a specific day they update the content on XBL & XBLA? Or do they just add things whenever?

I never know when they add stuff to Live. I'm constantly surprised when I browse the Marketplace. Granted, I rarely ever turn on my Xbox and browse it more than once or twice a month, so that may be why.

Quote:
Undertow developer Chair Entertainment has been hard at work on video games based on Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game series, the first of which is likely to be the recently trademarked Shadow Complex.

Sources claiming to have already played that game told us about their experience with the title, a side-scrolling shooter likened to classics Super Metroid and Mega Man X, a mash up of genres that's a 2.5D platformer. Card has said in the past that the game will focus on the Battle Room simulations that test tactical aptitude and be high on replayability.

Shadow Complex is also said to feature a unique twist on the Metroid-formula. It will feature familiar weapon and ability upgrades, including a jet pack for double jumps, a climbing kit for wall slides and a Bionic Commando style hookshot, but it's also a little deeper than the games it's been compared to.

According to what we were told by folks who had played the game, Shadow Complex takes advantage of the third dimension by offering interactive backgrounds. Players are said to be able to shoot into those backgrounds with the aide of a laser sight—controlled with the right thumbstick—to fend off enemies in a fashion described to Kotaku as a blend of Contra's side-scrolling and hallway style levels.

That mechanic was touted as an interesting addition to stock 2D shooter gameplay, but also lamented for its occasional awkwardness.

Shadow Complex sounds like it will follow the Metroid formula in offering new weapons, new areas to unlock and a progression that takes the main player from lowly combatant to super soldier.

We were told to expect more storytelling than your average 2D side-scroller, with cut scenes explaining why Battle Room combatants enter the titular complex on a rescue mission. Expect a sci-fi twist that Ender's Game fans may already be familiar with to justify why you're there and what you're doing.

What we were told certainly jives with tidbits that Chair Entertainment and Orson Scott Card have dropped since the announcement that the two parties would be working together. We wouldn't be surprised to see Shadow Complex announced at E3 as an Xbox Live Arcade downloadable game, but we're still calling this all rumor for now.

Don't know anything about Ender's Game. A new 2.5D platformer sounds fun, though.

Activision just announced that Wolfenstien 3D is coming to the Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network next week.
And, by the look of it, and perhaps taking a cue from the Fable II Pub Games, playing through Wolfenstein 3D on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will earn you accolades and gold to pay for weapons upgrades in Wolfenstein, the next chapter in the series due out August 4.

And one week later, on the 10th, all but one of the lineup for Sega Vintage Volume 2 will be coming out on XBLA.
That includes Sonic 3, Shinobi, GunStar Heroes, Altered Beast, Comix Zone and Phantasy Star II.
Sonic & Knuckles will be out later in 2009.

TRINE to go to the XBLA.
If you donīt know what Trine, itīs a game announce to go to the PSN and it looks amazing.
Developed by Fronzenbyte, and to be published by Atlus on XBLA (Nobilis will publish it for the PSN)

Quote:
"Trine is a fantasy action game where the player can create and use physics-based objects to beat hazardous puzzles and threatening enemies. Set in a world of great castles and strange machinery, three heroes are bound to a mysterious device called the Trine in a quest to save the kingdom from evil…
"The gameplay is based on fully interactive physics - each character's different ability helps the player battle an army of un-dead and defeat hazardous contraptions. The player can at any time freely choose whoever is best suited for the upcoming challenge or puzzle: The Wizard is able to summon objects to help solve puzzles and create new ways to overcome obstacles, the Thief uses her agility and dead-on accuracy to swiftly surprise the monsters, and the Warrior unleashes mayhem and physical destruction wherever he goes."

Looks cool. I thought it was just a side-scrolling fantasy hack-and-slash, but the physics make it interesting.

Zeno Clash will probably go to the 360.
At least the co-founder of ACE Team, the developers of ZC, is saying that they are currently talking to a publisher for a potential XBLA release.
And he also is saying that, if it happens, it will have extra content, not seen on the PC version.

BTW, Zeno Clash would work like a charm on project Natal....
Maybe Zeno Clash 2, as there is already talking about it.



On other news, Kudo, the create-a-game game, is coming out this month...later this month

I got it for PC but never finished it. It seems like it might control a bit better with the 360 gamepad, to be honest.

Just one more day until Gunstar Heroes hits XBLA!

I never did pick up Sam & Max: Season 1 for the Wii and I always intended to. I'm not sure, though, I may download that instead.

Good news, the XBLA this week just went from 2 to 3 games.
So, besides Rocket Riot and Sam & Max we will also have Magic the Gathering.

That makes 9 games in just two weeks.
Nice move Microsoft, keep it up
