Wallace & Gromit Ep.2 And Sonic & Knuckles This Week's XBLA Titles

by Rainier on Sept. 8, 2009 @ 5:21 a.m. PDT

In Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures, you assume the roles of both Wallace and Gromit, and spend each episode exploring a vivid world, assembling intricate contraptions, and getting the duo out of the sticky situations they frequently find themselves in. The blue hedgehog and the red echidna were sworn adversaries in Sonic 3, but in Sonic & Knuckles, Knuckles realizes that he's been just a pawn in the schemes of Dr. Eggman (aka Dr. Robotnik) and they team up.

Wallace & Grommit Episode 2: The Last Resort

Will the perfect holiday turn into the perfect crime?

When unrelenting rain ruins their holiday plans, Wallace & Gromit bring the beach to 62 West Wallaby with a makeshift resort — in their basement. Keeping customers satisfied is tricky business, especially when one of them is clocked on the head by an unknown assailant. Whodunnit? Find out... with a little help from Wallace's latest invention, the Deduct-o-matic!

Wallace & Grommit Episode 2: The Last Resort will be available on Xbox Live Arcade Sept. 9 for 800 Microsoft points

Sonic & Knuckles

The blue hedgehog and the red echidna were sworn adversaries in Sonic 3, but in the platform adventure Sonic & Knuckles, Knuckles realizes that he's been just a pawn in the schemes of Dr. Eggman (aka Dr. Robotnik). Knuckles, the former adversary, now supports Sonic to chase the common enemy, and each must use their strengths to acquire the priceless Master Emerald and save Angel Island.

Key Features:

  • Sonic or Knuckles: Play as Sonic and let loose on Dr. Eggman wth amazing new powers, or play as Knuckles and tackle Dr. Eggman with bare-fisted attacks, high speed glides, and wall-climbing abilities.
  • New adventures: Eight new zones and two different adventures await!
  • Combine games: For the first time since the SEGA Genesis, combine with Sonic 3 to play as Sonic, Knuckles, even Tails, and unlock new secrets! Combine it with Sonic 2 and play with Knuckles and all his signature moves

The game will emulate the “lock-on” technology available in the original. This means that it will work with previous XBLA releases of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Sonic 3.

Sonic & Knuckles will be available on Xbox Live Arcade Sept. 9 for 400 Microsoft points
