No joke, amazing prizes are out there to win so keep reading. Gamerscoreblog has posted details of a Cyberball 2072 Tournament. There are only 100 slots so act fast!
Why have a Cyberball 2072 tourney? Because BIGVIP (aka Aaron Greenberg) was a huge fan of the game back in the day and he apparently likes to give away tons of cool stuff in the name of gaming days past.
Amongst other things, you could win a set of new color controllers, a 120GB HDD, or one of those new Messenger Kits. Told ya the prizes were serious.
All the necessary details after the break.
Foundation 9 Entertainment has just announced that they have now released 20 games for XBLA. Not sure how they arrived at that number as I count 23, as of today. Could this bit of PR be in response to PopCap's fightin' words about being the "#1 XBLA Developer"?
Perhaps you do not recognize the name Foundation 9. Most likely that derives from the fact that the company consists of "11 proprietary development studios around the world". However you probably know of Digital Eclipse (their downloadable game brand) or Backbone Entertainment (one of their development studios). Both are integral in the XBLA strategy of Foundation 9.
Whether they have 20 games or 23 games on XBLA in immaterial. Either number brings Foundation 9's contribution to around 25% of all XBLA games. They are a driving force in the retro gaming space and have now begun branching out into new games with Bomberman Live. No doubt their support and successes will continue as XBLA grows.
The full breakdown of their XBLA portfolio after the break.
Technically, your actual shoes are optional, but you could definitely use a pair of rubber grips for your button mashing fingers (or as it says on Xbox.com -- "button-smashing").
Track & Field has the typical original flavor and super-duper-HD flavor. Does it really matter though? You'll likely have your eyes down as your furiously pound away at your poor controller.
Who's lacing 'em up this week?
(Typical deets after the break, but seriously, every arcade game has achievements...get over it.)
Xbox360Fanboy has a nice set of 3 comparison shots for the upcoming Yie Ar Kung Fu. In the shots you can see just how the 8-bit sprites have been improved (of course, that's a matter of opinion worthy of great debate) for their HD debut. And who doesn't want motion blur on that speedy fat man on the right there? I know that was on my list of needed graphical touch-ups.
Sarcasm aside and judging by the screens, I would imagine that the comparison was made by switching the "enhanced" feature on and off during a paused match. Thus, the identical scores and very similar situations presented in the shots. Wait, did I analyze this too much?
