Now that our trip to video game heaven has come and gone, it’s time to give you the run-down on the very best XBLA titles from E3 2011. We spent five hectic days getting our eyes and hands on every XBLA game possible and we’ve picked out fifteen games that stood out from the crowd.
E3 is upon us again, and XBLAFans has your Xbox Live Arcade coverage. We’ve got four of our talented staffers on the show floor and the rest of us are holding the fort down here on the site. Check back frequently as XBLA Fan breaks Xbox Live Arcade news and previews upcoming games. All our E3 coverage can be found below. Make sure to follow us on twitter and like us on facebook as well.
Thursday: Man, as busy as we’ve been E3 is just flying by. But what a great year it’s going to be for Xbox Live Arcade, and what a rush of news! In the past 72 hours our team has been getting hammered with news, and we’ve put out a record 38 articles in that time. The best news is there’s more to come. We’ve got over 25 games we’ll be previewing in the coming weeks along with interviews, special developer guests on our podcasts, giveaways and more! Time to dig our heels in for one last awesome day at E3. At this point we’re keeping fueled solely by caffeine and adrenaline, but man is it worth it. Time for the gang to hit the show floor! — Steve
PAX East will be upon us in roughly 24 hours, and XBLAFans has rounded up as many booth locations for great XBLA games as we could, all in one convenient post. That’s not to say you shouldn’t wander around PAX looking for other booths we didn’t know about, but we love our readers and so put the most comprehensive list we could together. Check it out after the jump. If you know of other XBLA games shown at PAX East send the info to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we could get link to the source (if possible) and the booth number as well that’d be super-great! Have fun at PAX!
Huge thanks to the entire team of writers who worked on this article: Andrew Crews, Cameron Titus, John Carson, Todd Schlickbernd, Tyler Cameron and Xeserox
