XBLA’s Most Wanted: What’s yours?

We still have a two more XBLA’s Most Wanted features waiting in the wings for Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, but we thought we’d take a minute and ask you, the everyday gamer, what your number one XBLA game wish is. Remember to be realistic–we aren’t going to see any Super Mario games on XBLA–but have fun with it. Who knows, you just might have your favorite game featured in a future Most Wanted column, and if you do you’ll have all of your wildest dreams come true.

If you need a refresher, hit the jump to take a look at all of the games we’ve featured this year. If a game seems interesting to you, be sure to comment on it. We can’t guarantee it’ll come to XBLA, but we do know that developers and publishers frequent forums and journalistic sites looking for what the fans want.

Boot camp that is, showing us different tricks of the trade if you will. These short videos are meant to give you a good look at the game in action, while educating you about some useful tips to keep you alive. This first video is all about the camper, we all know they exist and unless you are one, we bet you hate them as much as we do.

Do you have any tricks you have figured out that works well, if so let us know in the comments section below.

New Dungeon Defenders DLC headed to Xbox Live on December 21

Trendy Entertainment has announced a new batch of downloadable content for their smash hit Dungeon Defenders that will be coming to the Xbox Live Marketplace on December 21st. For the first time, our tower defending heroes will be leaving the comfort of their own sanctum, and heading out into the lands of Etheria. Titled The Quest for the Lost Eternia Shards, this downloadable content is only part one of a larger arc. That means The Quest for the Lost Eternal Shards Part Two is likely already in development! It has quickly become clear that Trendy intends to strongly support Dungeon Defenders with plenty of post-launch content.

You can get a look at the reveal trailer for the Quest of the Lost Eternal Shards DLC by watching the video above. Don’t forget that part one of this quest begins next Wednesday, December 21st. While not exactly official, we expect that the add-on will cost 320 Microsoft Points. If you still haven’t jumped in on the Dungeon Defenders action, check out our review of the game, here. Stay tuned for more coverage of Dungeon Defenders and all of its downloadable content ahead of us right here on XBLAFans.


XBLAFancast Special – Bodoink interview

In this special edition of the XBLA Fancast we sit down with Robomodo’s Lead Designer, Patrick Dwyer. In addition to the recently announced Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD, they’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for their pachinko/pinball hybrid, Bodoink. The main idea of the Kickstarter is to get community input on how they should design the game, and depending on how much you donate you’ll have different levels of involvement in the decision-making process. We discuss how the game is coming along, the cool prizes of the Kickstarter campaign, and a lot of other topics ranging from achievements to a more holistic view of Kickstarter. Check out the interview, and then check out our other coverage of Bodoink right here!

New Amy trailer filled with enemies

A new video for upcoming zombie game Amy shows of how to survive combat or, better yet, how to avoid it altogether. Since the main characters aren’t trained in combat, hiding is the best way to get around unseen. When combat is unavoidable,  you’ll have to use melee weapons to kill the zombies. Be careful, as weapons break and it’s easy to be overrun by just a few enemies. If worst comes to worst, you can use Amy’s special powers. Get ready to fight, Amy will be released in 2012.
