We're starting yet another feature here at XBLAFans that will showcase any newly announced Xbox Live Arcade-based avatar awards from are friends over at AvatarAwards.

Remember, these are awards, so they're given out to the player by completing criteria in each game. For more detail hit up the Avatar Awards site. You can also follow them on Twitter at @AvatarAwards360.

April 2011 XBLA sales

With no NPD-style analysis of XBLA and Microsoft announcements of sales data few and far between, Gamasutra has made it a habit to do monthly analyses of leaderboard data to get some kind of grip on relative success and failure in the marketplace. April's deluge of new releases alongside a handful of sales for previously released titles meant that Gamasutra contributer Ryan Langley had a lot to parse. Read the rest of this entry »

What we are playing: Week of May 1st

This is a new piece we’re starting to let our readers know what we have been playing for fun over the past week.

John Laster – I'm playing Outland, or at least I will be once I can stop staring at how pretty it is. Also big thanks to all you guys who came out and played Hydro Thunder Hurricane with us yesterday!

Steve Melton – Just finished The Da Vinci Disappearance DLC for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Going to get back into Crazy Taxi and Rock Band 3 for a while until I can get Portal 2 on sale.

Tyler Cameron Since I'm too poor for anything good in retail right now (*sigh* one day, Mortal Kombat and Portal 2) and I'm still waiting for my wife to decide she wants to play the Gears of War 3 BETA with me, it's been all XBLA for me. I'm still enjoying Section 8: Prejudice very much, but I got back in to playing Battlefield 1943 and Hydro Thunder Hurricane. I also picked up Banjo Kazooie on sale this week, rekindling my love for old Rare games. Afting that, I plan on digging in to the beautiful looking Outland.

Kaitlyn Chantry – I'm taking a break from Dragon Age 2 to play Another World on a DOS emulator. I'm gearing up for this summer's release of From Dust by playing Chahi's 1991 masterpiece. So excellent!

Andrew Crews – This week I finally finished up the Lode Runner DLC and it was literally the worst thing I have played on the Xbox 360. I also took a few hours and played through Nin2-Jump which is a fun little game that supports a great cause. At only 400MS points, everyone should buy this game.

Ross Adams – Finished Bulletstorm and Portal 2, one was substantially better than the other. Still playing lots of Mortal Kombat but my weekend will also be filled with Outland and Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes, which I finally got round to buying.

Jonathan Cole – Almost finished plowing through Section 8: Prejudice campaign mode while also spending a bit of time with the great multiplayer. Rented Mortal Kombat for the weekend and having a blast with it, despite my total worthlessness with fighting games. Finally, continuing my Dwarf Noble playthrough of Dragon Age.

Damon Filman – I've spent this week finishing up Portal 2; I'm really close to the end now and have loved everything so far. I will be ditching the Xbox briefly this weekend to play the next episode of the Back to the Future game.

James Heiger – I have been playing Catan with my friends.  Its a great way to make them not my friends anymore

John Drawdy – This week has been completely taken up by the Gears of War 3 BETA which I am loving oh so very much. I also have found a few minutes here and there for the campaign in Section 8: Prejudice, not to bad so far.


Section 8: Prejudice gets its first title update

The stellar Xbox Live Arcade shooter Section 8: Prejudice is getting its first title update. The patch addresses stability issues as well as some server-based issues. A full list can be seen after the jump. Coinciding with the update are a handful of hotfixes for the game. Ranked Swarm matches can now be played with two players, and servers will be more likely to try to keep friends of party members together when auto-balancing a game. If you haven't checked out Prejudice yet, take a look at our review of the game, then give it a spin. You won't be disappointed.
