XBLA Wednesday: January 4th, 2012

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
Welcome to 2012, a land of pending catastrophes, Mayan prophecies, and John Cusack. The first game of the new year hitting the XBLA marketplace is a reboot of an old classic.

The big hits and stellar plays are back with all-new NFL Blitz. Featuring a combination of the arcade-style gameplay that made the original a hit and the deep, immersive game modes of today, NFL Blitz is recharged with an energetic, football gaming experience. Whether battling your rival in a 7-on-7 grudge match, fighting your way through a season of the Blitz Gauntlet, or taking over the online Battle Boards in Blitz Battles, Every Game Is a Two-Minute Drill with NFL Blitz!

Now, I know some of you immediately reject the 1200 MSP price tag, but remember, there's only twelve months to live, so if you see something you like, it may not be wise to hesitate.
