XBLA Wednesday: RISK: Factions, Duke Nukem: MP

Coming up this Wednesday on Xbox LIVE Arcade, we're getting two new equally bizarre games. First is Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project ($10), a side-scrolling run and gun, which I feel like a lot of people are going to buy merely because they want to believe the Duke is alive. Nothing wrong with that!

Next is RISK: Factions ($10) from Stainless Games (Magic: The Gathering) and EA. As you can plainly see above, it's not quite what you might expect. Some of the playable factions include zombies, robots, and yes, even yetis. The level of absurdity present here has me dying to check the game out.

What's more, Hasbro Family Game Night will continue to be successful beyond all belief when it gets the following additions on Wednesday: Jenga, Pictureka!, and Connect 4x4, all of which are $10 a pop.

Prodigy ventures to places most hybrid board/videogames shy away from

With board games continuing to increase in popularity, it is no surprise that there has been a lot of crossover between that space and videogames. Not only are a lot of board games being adapted or reimagined digitally, but s...more
