Xbox LIVE Newsbeat October 2nd – 15th
The latest batch of DLC content, Arcade games and add-ons from Microsoft have been revealed in the new Xbox LIVE Newsbeat announced by Xbox 360 spokesperson Major Nelson.
The two biggest additions are perhaps the SEGA retro re-releases of Saturn classic Nights: Into Dreams, and Dreamcast title Sonic Adventure 2. This continues their current habit for focusing on digital remasters of classic titles, with Jet Set Radio only being released recently.
Then the week after that, we will see the release of the latest incarnation of the Worms series, which promises to go back to its roots, with simple 2D gameplay, but with some new physics and weapons to boot. And those of you who enjoyed the antics of Naughty Bear – the cuddly bear who has turned to violence – will also be happy as the sequel to that game, entitled Panic in Paradise, is also out that very same week.
Sales this period focus on fighting games and the Toy Soldiers franchise, with some big reductions on offer. But there are also savings to be had on certain Kinect games and there will be a sale on games from Tim Schafer’s Double Fine game studio.
