The above screenshot may look like Mirror's Edge, but it's actually an upcoming Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network game called Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond. The character name may sound familiar, Matt Hazard: Eat Lead was a 3rd person shooter released earlier this year that had a lighter take on video games. Basically, the game was a videogame that was a spoof on videogames. It was fun and frustrating at the same time.
The side scrolling "sequel" to the game looks to follow this tradition, showcasing "out of work" video game characters desperate for a job...and attention. The game has a two player co-op mode that lets your buddy play as Matt's partner Dexter Dare. If the trailer is any indication...the game is going to be pretty over the top. Look for it early next year on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
