Xbox Live Arcade's House Party is in full effect now that the parents are off vacationing in Hawaii. (What can possibly go wrong?) The first title for this batch of releases is rather fitting due to its in-your-face batsh*t insanity: Arc System Works' Hard Corps: Uprising.
The full download is priced at $15, but even if you aren't in the market for a gorgeous-looking Contra game, I recommend playing the demo; there's enough content to justify the download time. If nothing else, do it for the absurdly badass animated intro movie.
Any takers? I'm afraid I'll buy this, get my ass kicked, and never play it again.
