Hard Corps, Beyond Good & Evil HD, and more attending the XBLA 'House Party'

Just like any good party, the upcoming Xbox Live 'House Party' promotion, which starts next week, is going to cost you a bit of cash. Okay, so maybe Microsoft isn't the best party host ever, but still, games - the event is promoting some high-profile additions to the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Hard Corps: Uprising, which launches on February 16, will kick off the month-long celebration of downloadable downloads. The full release schedule is as follows:

February 16
Hard Corps: Uprising - 1200 Microsoft Points

February 23
Bejeweled Blitz - 800 Microsoft Points

March 2
Beyond Good & Evil HD - 800 Microsoft Points

March 9
Torchlight - 1200 Microsoft Points

March 16
Full House Poker - 800 Microsoft Points

House Party games will likely be given a special presence on the Xbox Live Arcade, so expect a makeover on the digital storefront beginning next week.

    Why does Full House Poker cost 800 points? I thought that was suposed to be free?

    Hm... BG&E... Never played it, but dammit I'm curious after all the things about BG&E2. Meh, might as well try it.
  • BMW89 - February 9, 2011 4:39 a.m.

    I didn't think BG&E was coming out until this fall. Could that possibly mean...a sequel...this year...? Do I dare to hope?

    Hmm everyone seems really excited for the new BG&E HD remake comin out. I've never played it, but due to the popularity i might have to check it out; it will either be that or stacking... also everyone shouldn't overlook Torchlight, a great game which i think will have multiplayer on the 360 version, but i may be wrong.

    BG&EHD!!!!!!!!! I almost can't contain my excitement! This is certainly the best news I've heard this year, so far, and so CHEAP, too! Easily a day one purchase - hopefully the exposure will be great enough that we'll get some news on the sequel sooner rather than later. I hope they hype the sheep-dip out of this, because it's WORTH it, and it DESERVES to be a bigger hit than it was. Hooray! K, gonna go dance for joy some more! Yay!!!!!!!!

  • Darkmessiah24 - February 9, 2011 12:18 a.m.

    Definitely getting Beyond Good & Evil HD and Torchlight.
