Microsoft Getting Ready To Throw An XBLA House Party

Warn the neighbors, shove the furniture out of the way, and throw a tarp on the floor--Microsoft is getting ready for a house party. The promotion, which begins February 16, includes the weekly releases of five Xbox Live Arcade games.

Just what are those games? Well, I'm glad you asked. The whole fandango starts with the release of Konami's Hard Corps: Uprising, with Bejeweled Blitz Live, Beyond Good & Evil HD, Full House Poker, and Torchlight following suit in an unannounced order.

The inclusion of Runic Games' Torchlight is a bit of a surprise. The XBLA version of the PC game has been updated with new controls, loot, and quests, and also a new pet for your adventurer. Huzzah!
