Doritos Crash Course 2 coming soon to XBLA

After quietly appearing in February on a Xbox Marketplace listing, Microsoft has officially announced Doritos Crash Course 2 from Behaviour Interactive, the follow up to 2010's popular advergame by the same name. In the sequel,  "run, jump, slide and wall jump your Avatar through four new worlds of irreverent obstacles, traps and pitfalls." As players make their way through the course, they will compete for the best completion times and collect stars to unlock further progress. While no online multiplayer is mentioned, a player can "compare your best time against up to three asynchronous games clips of your friends."

Like the first game, Crash Course 2 will be free to play, but this time around gamers will have the option to buy coins, giving them the ability to "unlock new courses, power-ups and vanity items." While no exact release date has been announced, the game will hit virtual shelves this year. In the mean time, hit the jump to make your way through this obstacle course of screenshots.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon teaser trailer and website embrace an '80s future

By  •  News

Farcry 3: Blood Dragon has been on XBLA Fans' radar since Marketplace art leaked online last month, and now Ubisoft has made one of its worst-kept secrets a reality. A teaser trailer for Blood Dragon appeared alongside a Geocities-esque website today, which portrays the game as an '80s sci-fi action movie. The teaser doesn't reveal much outside of reinforcing the 80s-inspired aesthetic, though we captured a brief flash of what appears to be in-game footage. If anything can be gleaned from it, it looks as though Blood Dragon will keep with Far Cry's FPS lineage.
