In a rare move for an XBLA title, Twisted Pixel Games is giving away free beta access to their latest work in progress, Ms. 'Splosion Man. As a quick refresher, Ms. 'Splosion Man is a 2d side scroller, and direct sequel to the popular 2009 XBLA game, 'Splosion Man. Beta access will be given on a first come first served basis. To register for the beta of Ms. 'Splosion Man follow the hyperlink. The registration window will be from yesterday, May 24, to June 12.

The official blog post said that they will accept roughly 10,000 applicants to the beta access. The main goal of this semi open beta is to test the online functionality of the game. Twisted Pixel Games will give players two multiplayer levels each week. The beta is slated to last from June 6 to June 24. The game is set for a Q3 release this year, so the game may only need a few more finishing touches before it's ready for final release.

In 2008, Maxis came out with the revolutionary game Spore. Maxis did so many things right on their massively single player simulation game. Darkspore is loosely based on the first game, and fans of the original should not expect a similar experience in the sequel.  Darkspore, which is set to release March 29, is a "a fast-paced, sci-fi Action-RPG."

In Darkspore you lead a squad of "living weapons." These creatures were created by the Crogenitors, an advanced race who experimented with DNA. Crogenitor Zelem discovered E-DNA, capable of millennia of evolution in a matter of hours. This E-DNA was unstable and spread rapidly across the galaxy creating the Darkspore. The Darkspore began killing the crogenitors. Eventually all but a few of the Crogenitors are killed. Those remaining few froze the "living weapons" so that they could later defeat the Darkspore.
