Burnout Crash is fun, I heard it was simple but I was surprised it's as simple as it is..there must be some depth because my scores suck compared to friends' scores.

You literally just drive car for 5 secs, hit one other car in intersection, then press "splode!!!" sort of button every 5 or 6 seconds to push any additional cars off at angles and causer further accidents or mayhem.

I actually intend to play through Dragon Age II so I wonder if Legacy is worth getting (might as well improve the game if I'm going to suffer through it?) I'm a BioWare fanboy masochistic enough to take the worst they can throw at me.

I wonder if Mass Effect 2 will be one Games on Demand one day... I wanted to replay it but this time with more time. I can download the PS3 version with all the DLC the only reason I haven't yet is because I want to start with my ME1 save (oh, the price)

I always thought it was because it was 2 discs but now with LA Noire in GoD I don't see any reason why not to.

Pretty sure multi disc Games on Demand must be some sort of technical challenge otherwise they would have already released tons of games (I can't wait for Lost Odyssey to be released there...it's a shame more gamers don't play it)

Not that I was interested in the game, just that they released a game in a single region and gave the finger to everyone else. :/

I think Atari's new Warlords remake is coming on the 18th. It's surprisingly good but there is next to no coverage on it. Can anyone confirm that date?

Well, this next weeks looks awesome: AMY is coming!

A RELEASE DATE AND PRICE: COURTESY OF AMY'S ENEMIES
It's time to make an appointment with your prosecutors ...

Champs-sur-Marne, France - Lexis Numérique announces AMY's release on PlayStation®Network and Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA in partnership with NAMCO BANDAI Partners).

Lexis Numérique, one of Europe's biggest independent videogame studios, have also released images of some of the horrors that confront Lana and Amy during their journey.

The story takes place in December 2034. Global warming has taken effect, causing widespread disease and an upsurge in natural disasters around the globe. The small town of Silver City (Midwest, USA) is directly affected - mostly by a comet that has crashed into town. As Lana, one of Silver's stricken citizens, regains consciousness - she witnesses the onset of a new kind of mayhem. Violent outbursts, fury, rage, wreckage and death: the world she knew seems to have gone to hell.

Apparently consumed by a mysterious illness, people she once knew are now part of a wild, ravenous horde. In spite of her wounds, she runs - she must escape this nightmare. Lana can tell that, deep within her, the viral process has begun but refuses to become one of them. Later, an autistic eight-year-old girl with strange powers will force her to make choices that change both their lives. Her name is Amy.

Infected humans, grisly creatures, special forces and even other survivors: they will have to trust and help each other to escape their pursuers in a desperate attempt to survive.

Amy, Paul Cuisset's new videogame, is a survival-horror based on a rich, fascinating and disturbing story. It's available on January 11th, 2012 on PlayStation®Network for 9.99€ / £7.99 and on Xbox LIVE for 800 MS points.

Developed by VectorCell Studios, supervised by Paul Cuisset, the French creator of legendary games such as Flashback and the Moto Racer series.

Just seems suspicious. Though it's published by Namco, so I guess they could make it up in pay-dlc.

Definitely recommend Switchball, one of my favourite early XBLA games, an one of the few ball rolling games left on the platform. A shame that Developer Atomic Elbow doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Namco is only the publisher in NA, so it's not like they have a mandate over the game or anything.

Scarygirl Coming To XBLA, PSN This Month

Square Enix is bringing the world of Scarygirl to XBLA and the PSN this month, giving the Hot Topic set a chance to save the world one tentacle attack at a time.

The game, based on Nathan Jurevicius' graphic novel, is coming to Xbox Live Arcade on January 18, the PlayStation Network a week later on the 24th, and on PC sometime in early 2012. Take a look at the trailer below to see Scarygirl in action, as she hops on platforms and dispenses justice with her slightly odd arsenal.

Trailer @ link!

I presume it's Class3 (single player), but there seems to be some multiplayer towards the end. The more I find out about this game the more I want it. Stepping off the hype train for a minute... it almost seems to good to be true. Never the less, I am excite.

Blade Kitten Episode 2, really?

By the way, if you're listing Monster World IV you could probably add Wonder Boy in Monster Land (plus Revenge of Shinobi, Alex Kidd in Miracle World and Wonder Boy in Monster World) as they are part of Sega Vintage Collection 3.

These haven't been confirmed for 360 yet though. They were supposed to start coming out late 2011, but I guess plans have changed.

There were also more titles: Super Hang-On and "the heritage of titles produced by legendary designer Yu Suzuki".

If anyone interested, here is a brand new Anomaly Warzone Earth interview.

http://bit.ly/xXR8Ve

An interesting bit:

Can we expect an expanded experience from the XBLA version? Maybe a new campaign, a new game mode, something like that?

Yes, the game will have brand new mode called Tactical Trials. It’s a set of 6 new missions exclusive to Xbox360. Those are tactical challenges where player is tasked with funny puzzle-like goals. Each mission has unique twist on Anomaly formula and player needs to find out unique solution to complete the challenge.
