Leedmees to puzzle XBLA Kinect fans on September 7

It looks as though Microsoft will make good on their plans to release an XBLA Kinect game roughly every month in 2011. Hot on the heels of an August release date for the XBLA adaptation of wacky TV show Hole in the Wall comes news of a Kinect game for September — the quirky-looking Leedmees. Konami has announced that the puzzler will be coming to an Xbox near you on September 7. See our coverage of the original announcement here, or head over to Konami’s Leedmees page for a trailer and some additional screenshots. Look forward to using your virtual body to guide, lift, and fling the Leedmees back to their home by yourself or grabbing a friend to play through some extra-tricky co-op levels. Keep your eyes here for more information as the release date draws closer!

Zombie Apocalypse 2 gameplay trailer

Since the announcement of Zombie Apocalypse 2: Never Die Alone in June, developer Backbone Entertainment has released a trailer featuring the familiar twin-stick shooter gameplay spread among four new controllable characters in a post-apocalyptic world. One particular point of detail is the main character who narrates part of the gameplay in colorful style, drawing from his roots as a “Canadian pro gamer” with “noob”-laden trash talk.

If you want to see more, check out the announcement post with a handful of additional screenshots or our review of the original title in the series.

Konami turns to fans for what they want next for XBLA

Konami has some great games under their belt with X-Men Arcade but sometimes, they forget about games of the past like Sunset Riders or one of the few good Aliens vs. Predator games. So they’ve turned to their Facebook page and asking fans “In a perfect world, what previously released Konami classic would you like to see next on XBLA”. The classic brawler based on The Simpsons immediately comes to mind but also even a classic console title like Metal Gear Solid which were both in our most wanted. Hopefully, we hear more about whatever Konami plans on bringing next to XBLA.

MLB Bobblehead Pros review (XBLA)

MLB Bobblehead Pros was developed by Power Pros Production and published by Konami. It was released on July 6, 2011 for 800 MSP.

Not many MLB games are on Xbox Live Arcade, with only one being currently available, MLB Stickball. MLB Bobblehead Pros tries to add drollery to baseball, but unfortunately falls short of being even a little humorous. With lackluster gameplay, creepy player models and features being locked up as future DLC, MLB Bobblehead Pros is a poor attempt at making an arcade baseball game.

Zombie Apocalypse 2 announced… and bloody

Konami and Backbone Entertainment announced Zombie Apocalypse 2, the sequel to the 2009 XBLA game Zombie Apocalypse. Players will have to survive hoards of zombies in a frenzy of twin-stick shooting action like the original, but promised to bring the “pandemonium of the original to new heights”. The game will feature four new main controllable characters who are stuck on a reclusive island during the apocalypse. Players will explore the island, obliterate numerous zombies, and find survivors while playing with up to four players cooperatively. Even if you play alone, you are in control with a new squad-based mechanic, and will let you swap between team members on the fly. Each character has their own weapons, strengths, and weaknesses, all of which will be important to know in order to survive.

Konami announces Leedmees for Kinect

Konami has announced their first kinect-enabled XBLA game, an “innovative full body puzzle experience”. Leedmees has players use their whole body to solve puzzles. Leedmees are a hapless species who always seem to walk into deadly situations, but using the Kinect sensor, players use their actions to save the creatures from certain death. Arms can be used as bridges¬†and walkways, and legs can hit switches. Players have to move quickly and efficiently¬†to save all the creatures, as they appear on screen, through 50 stages. There will also be a special 12 stage co-op mode where two players have to work together to save everyone. Leedmees is set to be available for download this summer.

Konami spills Puddle

Slated for a Summer release this year, Konami has announced a new XBLA puzzler, Puddle. According to developers Neko Entertainment, Puddle will have players controlling the tilt of the world itself to control liquids through a level, much like the PSP hit Locoroco. What differentiates this title from the adorable portable game is the ability to mix, shake, burn and explode the various puddles of chemicals to solve environmental puzzles. It’s toting realistic fluidity and physics to create a realistic liquid experience. Puddle began it’s life as the GDC Independent Games Festival 2010 award winner of the Student Showcase division. It’s good to see publishers pick up these fresh minds.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection sneaking its way onto XBLA, Zone of the Enders to follow

The recently announced Metal Gear Solid HD and Zone of the Enders HD Collections will apparently be released on XBLA in addition to the planned retail release. We have few details other than that and in fact there’s a little confusion about whether they will actually see an XBLA release or rather come to Live Marketplace. While the games official site makes mention of Xbox Live Arcade several other sources refer to the Marketplace instead.
It is likely this is just something lost in translation and the collections are in fact coming to XBLA, following in the footsteps of games like Beyond Good & Evil. For those unaware the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will contain high def version of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 aswell as the recent PSP game Peace Walker. Sadly no version of the original Metal Gear Solid will be on the collection, so it’ll remain one of our Most Wanted.

Similarly Zone of the Enders HD Collection will contain HD version of the first two games in that series. As stated we have little info on when we’ll see these on XBLA or in what configuration or cost. We’ll keep you informed.
