E4 and SpeedBall to Headline XBLA Wednesday
Not only do we see multiple titles hit XBLA this week, but there are also updates to past classics.
Every Extend Extra Extreme (800 Points)
E4 seems like a crazy, colorful, suicide sim, but it looks like tons of fun! Here’s the synopsis from Every Extend Extra Extreme’s info page at Xbox.com:
The latest creation by Q Entertainment, EVERY EXTEND EXTRA EXTREME (E4) is a unique action-packed shooter. Time your self-destruction perfectly, create chain reactions by exploding enemies, and extend the game life. Enjoy a trippy, trancey clubbing experience through the combination of highly addictive gameplay, music, and sharp visuals. E4 features five exciting game modes as you collect bonus items and detonate your craft to the beat to multiply your scores.
Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe (800 Points)
I can’t say I’ve ever heard of this one, but it looks like a retro title. If that’s the case, have at it! Looking for Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe‘s synopsis, I take it?
Bitmap Brothers and Empire Interactive bring you the legendary futuristic sports game Speedballâ„¢ 2: Brutal Deluxe completely remastered for Xbox LIVEÂ® Arcade. Play the fast-paced and utterly brutal game with its classic 2-D graphics, or go full on with the new super-enhanced high definition 3-D visuals. Smash your way to the top of the league in the solo game or go head to head locally or on Xbox LIVE. The game features 32 teams, 4 leagues, cup and knockout competitions, team enhancements, management and training options, and Ranked Preset or Ranked Career games.
On top of that goodness, Band of Bugs gets an expansion pack called “Ninja Sticks of Fury” which will likely be 250 points as the previous was.
To top off the day? The lone title on the GAMINGtruth Never Purchase List, Lumines Live, gets a permanent discount to 800 points starting on Wednesday at 9AM GMT, a free skin pack for XBL Gold members until November 14th, and the “Rockin’ Holiday Pack” for 400 points.
With that, consider Lumines Live! removed from the “Never Purchase” listing! I may give the demo a try now…
