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.

E3 XBLA release is ... Coffeetime Crosswords? [update]


You know, ever since Microsoft released DOOM in the middle of X06, we've become used to the idea that we should expect some killer games during big events. Last year's E3 gave us Golden Axe and Sonic the Hedgehog. During GDC this year, Microsoft released demos of XNA Community Games, including the highly anticipated XBLA release Dishwasher: Dead Samurai. Naturally, we were really fired up to see what would happen during E3 next week. So, what are we getting? Coffeetime Crosswords. Yes, SRSLY. Other than that, there will be free Buku Sudoku DLC and Puzzle Quest is joining Arcade Hits at the reduced price of 800 MS Points (a 400 point cut).

Barring any surprises, it's looking like the tradition has been broken.

Update: Looks like we might be getting another XBLA game after all.

XBLA Crosswords and more Rocky and Bullwinkle

Cruising the ESRB ratings board website has produced details about a few new Xbox Live Arcade games including a crosswords game and second helping of Rocky and Bullwinkle.

Developed by Konami, Coffeetime Crosswords has just been rated by the ESRB and looks to be an Arcade exclusive. We aren't sure what more one needs to say, it's crosswords on the XBLA with a hint of caffeine. Sound good? The other unannounced XBLA game comes from our friends over at Zen Studios and is Rocky and Bullwinkle. And before you begin screaming at our stupidity, this is not the previously announced The Bullwinkle Show that we mentioned last November. This is Rocky and Bullwinkle and it's something different. Though, we wouldn't be eagerly anticipating its release, as its similar cousin The Bullwinkle Show was supposed to release Winter '07 and the last time we checked ... it hasn't arrived.
