    A quick roundup of the XBLA releases from this last week (21st of August to 28th of August), scene only and we ignore stackable releases unless they offer something new. Nothing on the nuke front.

    To use XBLA you need a JTAG hacked/homebrew capable 360 (although unlike DLC there is the option of running this from a USB drive/DVD if necessary).
    These releases are standalone but occasionally they have title updates which are available from <a href="" target="_blank"></a> (sometimes release groups bundle the minimum required update if the XBLA release has DLC in with the release but not always) and DLC for them. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> might also be of use if you are playing in these circles.

    Two releases this week but two fairly notable ones as long as you are a sidescrolling beat em up fan who has played and enjoyed a few titles on older machines. Similarly both releases (at least according to <a href="" target="_blank">;direction=ASC</a> ) are local co-op capable which is always a bonus in this genre.

    It was demoed some time ago but now it is here. It is a 2d sidescrolling beat em up with an emphasis on over the top action.
    It is strongly reminiscent of 16 bit era games/similar timeframe arcade games and that is no bad thing (although depending on what reviewer you speak to it can be). 2 player co-op modes available.



    While it is based on a recent film of the same name it has actually seemingly been done properly and a good game was made although it is at best tangential to the film/comic. Much like the previous entry to this post it is a sidescrolling beat em up although it promises a bit more depth (unlockable moves/levelling up) and the like. 4 player co-op is available.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
