Microsoft are kicking off another annual Xbox Live Arcade promotion, titled House Party, on February 16th, and it includes a number of new XBLA games you might be interested in.
The big ones are Hard Corps Uprising, an anime styled side-scrolling shooter by Arc System Works and Konami, which will release on Feb 16th. Hard Corps Uprising is inspired by Contra: Hard Corps, but Konami are spinning it off into its own new franchise.
Joining it later will be Torchlight by the ex-Diablo 2 team, Runic Games, Beyond Good & Evil HD, Bejeweled Blitz Live, and Full House Poker. No dates for these games have been specified yet.
