Daily News - 10th January 2012 - XBLA House Party, Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition, Aliens: Colonial Marines and Silent Hill HD Delayed

Who's Invited To This Year's Xbox Live Arcade House Party?

For those who aren't in "the know", the XBLA House Party is a way for Microsoft to draw attention to a few of it's bigger Live Arcade releases by bringing them out in quick succession and has proven to be a good money maker for them in the past. this years selection of games seems pretty awesome, with the 4 chosen being:

  • Warp - A puzzle/action game featuring a teleporting alien
  • Nexuiz - A multiplayer FPS in the same vein as Quake
  • Alan Wake's American Nightmare - The sequel to 2010's Alan Wake
  • I Am Alive - A new IP from Ubisoft set after the apocalypse

No prices have been announced yet except for Nexuiz, which will be 800 Microsoft points. The House Party should be here soon!

Will an XBLA game be able to come close to the original? We shall see!


Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition Features Announced

I liked Mortal Kombat, quite a bit in fact, and I bet it's going for fairly cheap nowadays, but if you've yet to pick yourself up a copy of the game you'd do well to wait a short while. The Komplete Edition of the game will come packaged with all the game's DLC, including the 4 downloadable characters Kenshi, Rain, Skarlet and Freddy Krueger and "klassic" costumes and skins, plus digital downloads for an album called "Mortal Kombat - Songs Inspired By The Warriors" and the awesome Mortal Kombat film. the package comes out February 28th and you could do alot worse with your hard-earned money.

That could be you! But are you giving or receiving? Depends how good you are!


Early Leaked Collector's Edition Of Aliens: Colonial Marines

Found on a French website Gamekyo, this image of the collector's edition shows that it will contain a stauette of ripley's queen-stomper mech thing from the Aliens movie, a fold-out backdrop for the statue, a book of art, a new game mode and some exclusive in-game stuff that, to be honest, I couldn't care less about. Seriously though, look how awesome that is! Dude!



Silent Hill HD Collection Release Pushed Back To March

Sorry Silent Hill fans, but if you've been looking forward to revisiting the sleepy ghost town (as featured in Silent Hill 2+3 only, bytheway) then you're going to have to be patient for a little while longer. The collection's release has been nudged back to March 6th, with no real reason given. It's comning though, albeit slower than you thought.

It seem like the theme of today's news seem to be patience. all you video game fans out there just bide your time and play Skyrim, your games will be here eventually!

"Oh Mabel, if only these walls could talk. Why Mabel if these walls could talk, they'd say 'There was a hole here, it's gone now'!.... or, something?"
