Three Treasures and a Cave classic

Radiant Silvergun, Bangai-O HD, and More XBLA Shoot-em-ups on Sale This Week

Shoot-em-up fans know that XBLA shmups seldom go on sale, if ever. That’s why we’re both surprised and delighted to see not one but four Xbox Live Arcade shmups on sale this week, all of them with 2-player co-op. The highlight of the sale has to be Radiant Silvergun, a port of the extremely rare Sega Saturn classic from Treasure. But heck, if you’re a fan of the genre you’re probably going to want them all.

New Hard Corps Uprising Trailer Features Beautiful Co-Op

Hard Corps: Uprising is kicking off th Xbox LIVE Arcade House Party this winter.  To celebrate, Konami has a brand new trailer featuring Kenji Yamamoto, the producer of the game, in full house party regalia.  Which in this case, is a party hat and one of those noise makers everybody hates.  The video is chock-full of co-op action.

Hard Corps: Uprising Kicks Off Xbox LIVE's Arcade House Party, Plus New Pretty Screens

Summertime, and the livin's easy... I love the summer.  That's when Xbox LIVE Arcade puts out five games in five weeks to null the void of lackadaisical game releases.  Wait, this can't be right, unless the Summer of Arcade is starting February 16th.  Looks like Microsoft has decided that late winter/early spring is also lacking in quality game releases.  Never fear, game starved readers.  Xbox LIVE's Arcade House Party is here to alleviate the winter doldrums, and everyone's invited, assuming you've got the Microsoft Points to pay at the door.

New Screens for Contra Sequel, Hard Corps: Uprising

Last summer we brought you our hands-on preview of the new Contra sequel.  Hard Corps: Uprising may be losing the 'Contra' prefix, but the same run and gun co-op action will be present.  Konami's new title will be available for download on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.  Players will take control of super soldiers Bahamut and Krystal.  But who cares about the characters?  Old favorites like the Spread Gun and Laser will return, and let's face it, getting that big winged "S" is what you really remember from the early games.
