As announced, Alien Hominid HD has been released on the Xbox Live Arcade. The game is priced at 800 points, and it is available in all the Xbox Live regions. I may even download this given the price for a pretty cool game.

Are you addicted to the search for agility orbs that you bring it into the real world? Well to fulfill our orb finding needs during the day, Major Nelson has given us a link to download the agility orb sound effect to set as our ringtone, email alert and whatever else you can think of.

DeaconBlade 360’s First (possibly annual) Xbox Academy Awards

27 02 2007

DeaconBlade 360 has put together a list of Xbox Academy Awards. Instead of a trophy the winners receive an honorary mention over at unscripted360.com dubbed a ring of light. Of course Deacon gave himself an award for his world famous Xbox 360 Laws. There are still more categories being added, how about first ping to the post Deacon? Hahah anyway everyone should check these awards out. I have no idea if we should be expecting an actual Xbox Academy Awards Episode of Unscripted 360, that would be cool. Here is the link to the awards: http://www.unscripted360.com/2007/02/27/the-xbox-academy-awards/

Xcast Episode #22 Recorded on February 25th 2007

26 02 2007

Yep, I’m back for Xcast Episode #22. This episode I brought you all of the news going around the gaming industry and the community. Will the Wii continue to sell as much as everyone thought? Some more games are added to the Platinum Hits selection of games and brought down to $29.99 US yeahhhhhhhh. Xbox360Achievements.org hosted another attempt to get the 1000 people online achievement and I did not know this until after I recorded the show, but they succeeded. Planet Xbox 360’s own Nelson Rodriguez was featured in an on10.net interview that was released a few days ago. I gave you a more detailed look at Crackdown and whatever else I found to throw in the episode.

Download Episode #22 here!
