XBLA’s Most Wanted: Amped 2

XBLA’s Most Wanted: Amped 2

In 2003 Microsoft was doing everything they could to keep their the infant console afloat. One of the ways they attempted this was with exclusive titles of every genre and type, from classic names we recognized like Conker and Toe Jam & Earl, to supplying the market with original titles like Blinx and Blood Wake. Many of these titles, especially the rebirths, were major failures, but some of them were just amazing. Among those is Amped 2, originally released October 28, 2003 (NA) one week behind SSX 3. The two were pitted directly against each other in a snowy race to the top of the charts.

The original Amped launched to good scores but poor sales, leaving Amped 2 with a huge job: improve on greatness, but get noticed this time. Developer Indie Built succeeded, exceeding almost all expectations at launch, delivering (at the time) amazing graphics and decent controls. It quickly was acclaimed a must-have snowboarding game and spawned fans everywhere. It included local and LIVE multiplayer, massive drop selections and a few innovative features. Bundle up and drop into this weeks Most Wanted with us.

Joe Danger: The Movie videos with snowmobile and bicycle chases

Joe Danger: Special Edition is probably one of the best motorcycle games on XBLA aside from Trials HD and while we’re getting Trials Evolution in the spring, summer is looking like big movie month and Joe Danger: The Movie is premiering shortly after from Hello Games. In the first developer commentary, we see Joe on a snowmobile escaping from missiles being shot at him from a helicopter. You’ll have to land on certain areas to dodge missiles and the hop technique will be your ultimate friend here. In the second commentary after the jump, Joe is a policeman going after a robber but he has commandeered a kid’s bicycle since his license has been revoked. You’ll have to race through busy streets while throwing newspapers at the perp in order to catch him. Joe Danger: The Movie is looking like a crazy sequel that adds more to the already great formula with the same track creation and multiplayer from the original with new movie focused scenes. Look for Joe on the red carpet for its release in the summer.
