Supersonic Software, the developer behind many of the Micro Machines games, announced recently via their blog that their upcoming title Gas: Fuel for Fun would be making its way to XBLA sometime this year. Exact details are sketchy at best, but the game appears to be a racing/combat title in the vein of the Micro Machines games and another previous title of Supersonics, Mashed: Fully Loaded. Hit the jump to see the trailer from the game’s reveal from September 2009.
UK video games retailer GAME have started selling XBLA game and DLC codes. As part of a 6 month trial 40 shops across the UK will sell the content on cards similar to Gamestop in the US. The pricing of the games reflects that of Microsoft Points, the full range of content and pricing is below.
This represents an interesting experiment from the biggest games retailer in the UK and presents those who are wary of buying points with a solution. It also means customers can use credit from trade-ins or their GAME rewards cards to pay for the content.

This week on XBLA Wednesday the marketplace has a lot of variety. In Stacking (1200MP) from Tim Schafer’s Double Fine Productions you take control of Russian stacking dolls, also known as Matryoshka dolls, in this delightful adventure puzzler. TNT Racers (800MP) shifts to top down view in this simple arcade racer boasting a wide variety of cars, modes, maps and powerups as well as online and on-couch multiplayer. On the DLC front there’s an extra stage for Castlevania Harmony of Despair titled “The Legend of Fuma” (240MP), a retro throwback to Getsu Fuma Den, and a character pack to match it (160MP). Three completely different XBLA experiences, all in one day!
