A hitman and a batman

The final week before XBLA House Party kicks off is upon us, and two more games are trying to get your attention before you go buying those other highly-touted arcade games over the next month.

http://www.trueachievements.com/Shank-2-xbox-360.htm - 800 MSP

The fan-favorite 2D brawler is back as ex-mob hit man Shank returns to action in Shank 2. With those closest to him under attack, Shank is once again forced to go on the offensive.
Now he must put his trusty arsenal of handguns, shotguns, automatic weapons, chainsaws, machetes, grenades, plus all-new weapons and moves to use in order to protect those close to him.
The original game set a new standard for comic book style visuals and Shank 2 raises the bar. Shank 2 expands on the original game’s amazing combat system to redefine the 2D side-scrolling brawler.

Gotham City Impostors - 1200 MSP

A 6 vs 6 first person shooter, Gotham City Impostors is a multiplayer game unlike any other, giving players the opportunity to rebel against conformity as they customize their own characters. Posing as amateur vigilantes or villains, gamers will create their very own Bats and Jokerz characters using unprecedented customization options including insane costumes, homebrewed gadgets and a wide range of traditional and imagined weapons.

I'm guessing 1600 points for Gotham as well. It's probably why they are waiting to announce the price.

The original Shank did nothing for me and the second looks almost the same! I can see the appeal of Gotham City Impostors but it's not my kind of thing so I'll pass on both of these.
Posted on 06 February 12 at 18:32
Yeah, I'm betting on 1200 MSP for both of them. Might snag Shank 2 at that price.

Thanks. That's probably right, but since it isn't from the pub/dev folks, I think we're supposed to wait to report that.

Like I said, it is probably right though. The game seems well polished and 1200 MSP is the premium.

I tried the GCI beta and thought it was fun but not really worth it for me to pick up. I've got my eyes set on Feb 22nd for the new Alan Wake game.

As much as I'd want to get it, I feel that arcade multiplayers die too quick. With Gears, Halo, & Call of Duty out there its hard for anything to stay alive. :(
Achievements are nothing, we get it. But thats not gonna make us stop getting them.

Shank 2 is priced well at 800MSP if you liked the first. Impostors will lose it's luster too quickly for 1200/1600MSP price point. Think I'll wait for DotW for both., but I am a cheap bastard...

It also says it here on IGN:

But I understand. Strange that they haven't made an official price announcement.
