Beginning in February, Microsoft is continuing its tradition of quality downloadable games with the Xbox Live Arcade House Party promotion. Invited to the party are five games, set to be released once a week, starting Feb. 16 with Konami’s Hard Corps: Uprising, the first Contra game to not bear the Contra name.
Headlining is the long-awaited HD re-release of 2003’s critical hit, Beyond Good and Evil, and 2009’s breakout PC dungeon crawler, Torchlight. Players who have not had a chance to pick either game up should definitely capitalize on this opportunity.
Also joining the party is PopCap’s Bejeweled Blitz Live and Microsoft’s Full House Poker.
Check out a teaser trailer for Beyond Good and Evil HD below. Looking pretty good for a game that is eight years old, no?
