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.

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".

Players will explore the island, obliterate numerous zombies, and find survivors while playing with up to four players cooperatively.

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.
