By GameTagwastaken, 7 years ago
Thanks for tuning in this week. Thanks to my coauthor Elite Hero for providing the EU release dates and some game descriptions. Let's kick it off the only way we know how with the XBLA!

XBox Live Arcade:

The Watchmen: The End is Nigh (Episode 1)- 1600 Points
3rd Mar
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/w/watchmenteinxboxlivearcade...
Weighing in at $20, TW: TEIN attempts to capitalize on the upcoming film and become an episodic success on the XBox Live Arcade. We'll see if its pricetag proves to be too big of a hurdle.

Retail:

Battle Fantasia
US Out Now! / EU 6th Mar
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/b/battlefantasia/
To be brutally honest, it's a fighting game that released to NA last year and is getting brought to Europe to try to cash in on the gamers coming in to buy Street Fighter IV.

Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard
US Out Now! / EU 6th Mar
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/e/eatleadtrmh/
Third person parody shooter featuring an interesting story that makes fun of the last 20 years of video gaming.

Halo Wars
US 3rd Mar / EU Out Now!
http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/games/splash/h/halowars/
As with any game that has Halo in the title there has been a lot of hype around Halo Wars, but we did enough of that last week when it came out in Europe.

MLB 2K9
US 3rd Mar / EU NA
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/m/mlb2k9/
Featuring amazing play by play and supposedly fixing last year's bugs hopefully this one will be as fun to play as it is to watch trailers for.

Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X
US 3rd Mar / EU 6th Mar
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/h/hawx/
Ubisoft's latest attempt to branch out the Tom Clancy franchise leads us to the skies for some modern dogfighting.

DLC:

Prince of Persia: Epilogue
26th Feb Mar 5th
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/p/princeofpersia360/
Delayed from last week and set directly after the events of the games endings the Epilogue will have you taking on a new enemy The Shapeshifter. The Shapeshifter is an enemy that takes the form of two of Ahriman's most fearsome Lieutenants, the Warrior and the Hunter. As well as this Elika has been given more powers and there will be a new area to explore the Underground Palace.
