XBLA: Double D Dodgeball, Coffeetime Crosswords & Live Draft Tracker


It looks like we were in for a surprise on the Xbox Live Arcade after all. Available now for download are three new Arcade titles -- well, two and a half.

First up is Coffeetime Crosswords, a crossword puzzle game with over 150 puzzles. Coffeetime Crosswords features a co-op mode for up to 2 players (local only) to work together to solve difficult puzzles. Coffeetime Crosswords is another stellar Konami release, weighs in at 42MB and is priced at 800MS points.

Double D Dodgeball from Yukes is a dodgeball game (Sup, powers of deduction?). Featuring up to 4 players locally or 8 players online, D-triple is described as a retro-style dodgeball game. The tiny 17MB download is also priced at 800MS points. Originally D-triple was scheduled to hit the XBLA on July 30, so either it was pushed forward, released by accident or something secret was supposed to release but was postponed.

Lastly is the EA Fantasy Football Live Draft Tracker, which isn't exactly an Arcade game, per se. The Tracker acts as the middle man between EA's online fantasy leagues. Using the tracker commissioners who host league drafts offline and in-person can import your fantasy league settings. Once settings are established, players can select their picks with the tool and then upload completed drafts to their online accounts on EA's Fantasy Sports website. The tracker is priced at 400MS points.

Double D Dodgeball coming to XBLA July 30

Well this certainly is strange. Microsoft has been on such a quality control kick lately and then they go and do something like this. According to the incredibly misleading and ridiculous trailer for the game, Double D Dodgeball is going to be released to XBLA on July 30. Aside from the fact that the screens for the game look like a bad take off of Space Invaders and nothing at all like dodgeball, is the fact that Pirates VS Ninjas Dodgeball is also set to release during July; and that actually is a dodgeball game.

"Sent to die," are the words we just can't seem to get out of our heads for this one. Why, oh why, would MS want this on XBLA? Unless it costs something in the neighborhood of 200pts, we envision it getting delisted at the first possible opportunity.
