Xbox House Party 2012 Announced

The promotion includes Alan Wake's American Nightmare and I Am Alive.

Microsoft is promoting a few Xbox Live Arcade titles with its second annual House Party. A trailer for House Party 2012 has been released on the Xbox Live Marketplace and it shows the titles included in this promotion: Alan Wake's American Nightmare, Warp, Nexuiz, and I Am Alive.

Alan Wake's American Nightmare is the sequel to the original Alan Wake, while I Am Alive is a survival horror game that was originally slated for retail and has been in development for many years. Warp is a puzzle-based action game where you play as an alien with cloning and warping abilities and Nexuiz is a first person shooter that was free to play on PC in 2005 and has been recreated for XBLA.

I Am Alive, Warp and Nexuiz are also possibly planned for PSN and PC releases, but due to the House Party promotion, will be timed exclusives for the 360. Microsoft has yet to formally annouce this year's House Party, so dates and prices have not been revealed.

Super Meat Boy Forever Review

Ten years ago, we were given a gift in the form of Super Meat Boy on Xbox Live Arcade. At the time, we’d never really seen anything like it. Smaller indie downloadable games were really just starting to enter the mainstream consciousness of gaming and Super Meat Boy effectively kicked the door in and made clear that these smaller titles had something special to offer and were here to stay. And since that statement, myriad other developers have taken lessons from Super Meat Boy and its DNA can be seen in so many games that would follow. However, this creates an interesting predicament that Team Meat needed to solve - how do you offer a sequel that manages to bring something new to the table, while still feeling as simple and approachable (and difficult) as the original did?
