Xblah has uncovered on the Australian ratings board (OFLC) two new titles reasonably assumed for XBLA consumption. The two titles are Beat'n Groovy by Voltex (published by Konami) and Domino Master by Tic Games (published by Microsoft). I'm sorry to report we have zero word on what Beat'n Groovy is, but I think it's safe to assume it is some sort of rhythm game. On the Domino Master side of the fence Xblah did a bit of foot work on Domino Master and found out the game is already available on the PC for Real Arcade. Real Arcade was mentioned back in October as being a new breeding ground for games that will be ported to the Xbox Live Arcade service. The game currently looks like two shades of ugly, so here's to hoping it gets a graphical upgrade. Even with the graphics issues, a dominos title would be a very welcome edition to Xbox Live Arcade. Stay tuned as we will keep you up-to-date on these two titles as more information comes out about them.
Sick of people using exploits to gain the advantage in Texas Hold 'em while you do everything legit? Tired of saved games being filled with weirdness in Hexic 2? Well, let your mind be as ease. We've got title updates incoming for both games this week.
Full details after the break.
If you aren't a poker addict yet, you now have a reason to become one. At least for a month. If you are already an addict, let me be your enabler*.
Simply by playing Texas Hold 'em everyday, you will have a shot at winning an Xbox 360 Elite, a set of poker chips, or some Microsoft Points via the Alltel Texas Hold 'em Challenge. The best part is that you don't even have to be good at poker (I'm breathing a big sigh of relief at this point) to get in on the prizes. You get one sweepstakes entry for every day you play Texas Hold 'em from now to July 12th. Winners will be selected at random so anyone could win.
Just be sure to register your gamertag first (We don't want a repeat of the Old Spice Gamerscore Challenge now, do we?) and then get to bluffing!
