Triple whammy for XBLA

It’s another triple release on the Xbox Live arcade this week, taking us by surprise.

First up is Secret of Monkey Island which recreates the classic 1990 game in HD graphics and remastered music. Early reports suggest this is a must purchase for platform lovers.

Secondly is Madballs…In Babo Invasion which is what is says on the tin. Fight it out as a ball and compete to be the ‘biggest and baddest’ one. Not our words, but the press release. Anyway it was due to be 1200 MS Points, but the nice people at Microsoft have reduced it to 800 MS Points presuming it isn’t ‘that’ good.

Finally a surprise release in the form of Tour de France of which we had some achievements for yesterday. This is a recreation of the famous Tour de France sprint that takes place in erm… France. It features all the riders and 21 legs (course, not the riders legs) for you to battle it out.

And the good news, is that all three games are 800 MS Points, a pleasent surprise given the pricey releases of past weeks. Tell us what you want below and we’ll have reviews on all three soon.
