I'd never heard of this one before, but it looks pretty awesome. I know what I'm saving my points for!

This is one of the games that I have really been looking forward to. Can't wait!

Ms. Splosion Man arrives on XBLA on July 13th!

@The_Fox It's a PSP game that is flipping awesome!

@WolfRamHeart I've got Splosion Man, but I've yet to get a chance to check it out. I've heard great things about it and I'm looking forward to playing it, but at the moment I'm pretty much deadlocked on Ocarina of Time 3D.

Oh, Tim Schafer's new game Trenched that landed on XBLA recently is getting killer reviews. I'm not a fan of his games, but I think I queued the demo to check this one out, as it isn't suppose to be like his other games.

@Magi Will do my friend. I'll try and check it out tomorrow after church and I'll post my thought on it here.

Oh, I almost forgot completely about this, there is a game Pixelbit Helicopter Challenge on XBLA Indy Games and it's only $1. It's a blast, and I recommend everyone dropping the huge asking price for the game. I'm going to try and get a review up for it next week as well too.(Oh, change the controls to RC Copter Inverted)

Lots of XBLA sales. I'm definitely buying Hard Corps and Zeno Clash Ultimate Edition tomorrow, and Half Minute Hero makes it's landing tomorrow as well. Hope you guys have some spare points laying around!

@Magi I've yet to try the Trenched demo, but when I get back into town next week I'll give it a go and let you know what I think.

I did get a few hours with Duke Nukem Forever, and it's a blast. If you like the originals crude sense of humour, then the game is hysterical. If not, then by all means this is to be skipped!

I didn't realize this was the game you were talking about. The one with the mech, right? I've been interest in it, but it does look a bit iffy.

Ok I am looking into getting the Kinect for my son and I am wondering what is the minimum in square footage of room do I need for him to play games. Right now my Xbox is in a very cramped bedroom and there is really no way to rearrange the stuff in the room to give me more space. I have room to use the Wiimotes in the bedroom for games like Wii Sports Resort and such but does Kinect require more room to us than the Wiimote? I just want to know before I run out and purchase one. I really dont want to move my Xbox to a different room since the bedroom is where the modem is for the internet so if I move it it means the Xbox wont get internet.

@Tasuki Kinect requires around a 6ft minimum for single player and 8ft for multiplayer, but if I remember correctly the optimum space is like 12 sq. ft..

We got a neat little news bit today over at Kinectaku, and this new invention will allow Kinect to work properly with 40% less space, and that is quite a big deal for those with space restrictions.

@Slapshot: Thanks for the info and that accessory for the Kinect would be perfect indeed for the limited room I have. I will be interested to see if any of you guys do a review on it.

@Tasuki I'm sure someone will get one and give an Impressions article. I haven't invested in Kinect. It's not because I don't want it, but it's that I just don't have the time. I enjoy playing Indie games and I use my little free time doing reviews for them instead.
