Feeding Frenzy 2 and Domino Master Hitting XBLA on Wednesday
For the third straight week, we’ve got multiple new games being released on the Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday. Feeding Frenzy 2: Shipwreck Showdown (800 Microsoft points or $10), the sequel to the fish-eating family game, promises to bring new fish and levels in addition to the ability to jump out of the water. The game’s major addition from its predecessor is multiplayer support which comes in the form of four-player co-op or minigames.
Domino Master (800 points, $10) is the other new game this week and was developed by TikGames, whom you might remember as the developer of Texas Hold ‘em on Arcade. There are five different domino variants — Mexican Train, All 3s, All 5s, Straight Dominos, and Bergen — as well as the ability to set custom rules so that you can create your own game types. And here I was thinking all you did with them was lay them down in elaborate fashion and then watch them fall over.
And finally, Ticket to Ride will receive another expansion pack, this time to include the 1910 map for 400 points ($5). That’s a bit less than the Europe pack, which was released in August for 600 points, but Europe added included two new types of routes (ferries and tunnels) in addition to a new map.
