Space Giraffe and Street Trace release

Fresh for the picking and ready for download off the XBLA are two new gems; the psychedelic Space Giraffe and the hovering Street Trace: NYC. Space Giraffe is available for 400 Microsoft points and includes 100 levels of lsd visuals with Street Trace being a little more spendy around 800 Microsoft points and featuring eight player hoverboard racing. As always, trial games are free, so be adventurous and give them a try.

Street Trace screens and info hover in

Over at the new and improved XBLArcade they've posted a few new screenshots of XBLA title Street Trace and some random nuggets of information. The screens look good and there is a bunch of multiplayer and gametype info released, but it isn't too much we haven't seen before. And we still have yet to hear a firm release date for this title, but we're marking our calendars for sometime later this spring. Make the jump if you're hungry for some Street Trace facts and pretty visuals, otherwise go get on your hoverboard and buy us a copy of the Back to the Future trilogy ... but you can totally keep the third one.

Preview Street Trace in NYC one more time

If you missed out on the previous Street Trace preview event earlier this month, now you have a second chance. If you live in or near New York City and would like to play Street Trace before it hits the XBLA simply email the fine folks over at ILoveXBLA.com and they'll register you. Those who register will be filled in with the specifics, but we do know the event will be held on Tuesday, February 6th. If you attended the previous event what did you think? Is this arcade game something that has potential?

Play Street Trace in NYC before it's released

It looks like Xbox 360 Achievements and DaKing240 have partnered with the creators of Street Trace to give fans an exclusive preview of the game before it's released. The event takes place on Monday, January 15 at 6:00 PM EST in the NYC area so you have to live nearby. If you are interested in playing XBLA game Street Trace before it hits the arcade be sure to post on this forum so you are added to the attendee list. Though, they haven't posted where exactly the event is taking place (other than being in NYC), but we're sure more details will come soon. Play some Street Trace, mingle a little, chat about your favorite Xbox 360 blog (that's us), have fun ... it's free!

Confirmed: Street Trace only 800 Points

We just got word that upcoming XBLA title Street Trace will come to the Arcade at only 800 Microsoft Points. Last week, we uncovered all the achievements for the game and were hoping it wouldn't cost over 1000 Points. Well, it looks like our worries have been short lived, because we confirmed that the urban hoverboard racing game will only set you back 800 Microsoft Points.

Since the game is going to cost only $10, are you more inclined to purchase it? Of course we'll get to demo it first, but 800 Points makes the game seem oh so more sweet.

XBLA title Street Trace achievements unlocked

Do you remember future XBLA title Street Trace? It was the game that was announced during X06 with fully 3D environments, split screen multiplayer, and hoverboard racing. Well, it looks like Street Trace is getting closer to release as Xbox360Achievements uncovered all the achievements for this upcoming Arcade hit. We're still amazed at how developers can cram fully 3D space, textures, code, and HD goodness into a package less that 50mb. We're also praying that this Arcade title costs less than 1600 Microsoft Points, maybe around 1000ish. Anyone looking into purchasing this game when it releases?

[Thanks, DaKing240]

Street Trace NYC devs speak

GamerTag Radio interviews some guys from Gaia Industries about their original Xbox Live Arcade title, Street Trace NYC. This game was playable at Digital LIfe, but hasn't gotten much press, despite 3D enviroments, split-screen/online multiplayer and a Michael J. Fox-friendly concept (hoverboards). You can visit the game's official site here. While they're doing their alternative media tour, maybe these hard-working indie developers should grab some toilet paper and remind Sony's snobbish Sgt. Pepper that XBLA has plenty of new IP on the way.
