For those inclined to gustatory puzzling, Eets: Chowdown now has new downloadable content. Specifically, Puzzle Pack 2: Eets in Space.
The new pack contains 20 new puzzles and will set you back 200MSP (just like last time). People finished with the Marshomines from Puzzle Pack 1 and looking for new challenges will be treated to new items including the Pink Bud and the Marshopump.

After a long silence, N+ was recently on show at PAX. Besides the obvious vicarious living I was getting looking at photos of people playing the game, there was little solace for myself and those waiting (im)patiently for the game. But that has all changed. Now, I can imagine myself attaining achievements as a ninja "driven not only by a thirst for gold, but also by a physics simulation."
I guess if I can't have Lode Runner, this might satiate me a bit. I am very curious if co-op will be fun.
Anyone love (or hate) these achievements?
[Update]: At DaKing240's request I am removing the achievement info from this post as his post was removed (thus the broken link).
We heard about a possible XBLA turn for N+ about a year ago. Actually, a little more than a year ago to be exact. Klei Entertainment was also onboard to help MetaNet bring the title to XBLA. It is possible that N+ was even delayed a bit because Klei had their own game to deliver to the service. Then again, maybe the simultaneous development of DS, PSP, and XBLA versions slowed them down.
Whatever the reason, we hadn't heard a peep from them for a long while. Then, in June, a contest popped up that would allow regular people like us to get our own level designs into the game. Winners were decided and we got a list of all these levels that would be included in the XBLA version. But still no word on a release.
By now, many of you may have lost the faith. I understand. And that is why I bring this picture to you. This shot was taken at PAX and shows N+ and a 360 controller. Could the game be closer than we think? Or is this just the PC version taunting us even more?

Gamerscoreblog has just confirmed the arrival of Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix this wednesday. It might just be the most confirmed game ever. Conspicuously absent from the latest post is any info on price or the inclusion of War World in this Wednesday's fun. Were we deceived? Hopefully we find out soon.
That's old news though. The interesting bit is this: Besides SPFIITHDR (and hopefully War World), XBLA will also see the release of two DLC packs this Wednesday. First, Bomberman Live! will be getting the Bomb-Up Pack 1. Second, Eets: Chowdown will also be getting some DLC. We already knew that though. No pricing details yet, nor any info on the specific contents of these packs.
Gotta love the advance notice though. Makes budgeting for this week that much easier (or harder as the case may be). Do you think Silver Creek with try to sneak another pack for Soltrio Solitaire in there just to avoid feeling left out?
[Update]: Chris Paladino of Gamerscoreblog has responded to concern about War World not making it this week with the following at the link below:
"War World is not release [sic] this week according to all of the internal folks I've asked...
Sometimes there are many bowling pins being juggled, and developers can get their signals crossed - which is why until you see the press release for the week - nothing is official. "
Looks like I might be breaking out the ol' strikeout tool...
At least they confirmed the price of SPFIITHDR will be 800 MSP.
Klei Entertainment is still mum on any of the details (like when, how much, and what exactly would be included) but they did throw us this snazzy "sample background" for some of the upcoming levels. And considering it is tentatively called Eets: Chowdown Puzzle Pack, I think it is safe to assume we are getting new puzzles.
