One and Done

Fruit Ninja Kinect? Fruit Ninja Kinect. And folks, that is it for the week. Well, EDGE, another well received (and controversial) iPhone game, hits for PC and Mac. But the dog days of August have nothing for retail shelves this week.

Wednesday

Fruit Ninja Kinect (XBLA) — An entry in Xbox Live's Summer of Arcade, this is the first Kinect-enabled titled to be offered over XBLA. The tap-drag mobile hit puts players in the act of karate-slashing flying fruit salad to rack up high scores.

Thursday

EDGE (XBLA) — Mobigame's isometric, surreal space platformer arrives on PC and Mac via Steam, bringing with it a legitimately great video game soundtrack.

Looking Ahead

Aug. 16: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. Aug. 23: Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Aug. 30: Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, Madden NFL 12. Sept 6: Driver: San Francisco, Dead Island, Resistance 3, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. Sept. 13: NHL 12. Sept. 20: Gears of War 3
