Alien Hominid goes half price as Deal of the Week on XBLA

If you own an Xbox 360 and haven’t played Alien Hominid yet, shame on you. Shame, I say. You should feel terrible. It’s tragic that you would ignore such a fantastic game, especially when it’s coming from some of the nicest and hardest-working guys in this industry. You got Castle Crashers, right? So what’s the deal with not having this? That was a pretty rotten thing to do, mister, and if I had a garden hose and a jar of angry hornets, so help me I’d …

Ahem. Anyway, the time to redeem yourself for missing this game is March 30th, when it will officially become Xbox Live’s “Deal of the Week,” and go on sale for half price. That’s 400 MS points, which is far less than what you’d pay for any number of much crappier games. The special price will be available all week, so that’s plenty of time for you to stop kicking puppies and burning orphanages long enough to download it. You bad person. It’s not too late to make things right, you know. I’m shaking my hornet jar.
