Spare Parts
EA Announce 'Spare Parts' for XBLA

EA's Play label has today announced XBLA adventure, Spare Parts, which sounds like a bit of a riff on Disney Pixar animation Wall-E, as two robots get tossed out with the rubbish onto a strange planet, which they must then escape.

"Courageous robots" Mar-T and Chip must collect and salvage 'spare parts' (ah! We see what they did there!) to repair an abandoned spaceship and make good their escape before the evil Lord Krung sends out his army of henchmen to destroy the poor little mechanical fellas.

Working together in local or online co-op, Mar-T and Chip will also be able to discover upgradable abilities like Rocket Boots that will aid them in their quest, while along the way they'll also be able to rescue other stranded robots. 

Mar-T and Chip will come up against armies of Krofax troopers, hostile spider-monkeys (yes, you read that right) and a Super Huge Mega Laser (obviously) on their journey too.

Take a look at the first screens in the gallery.

Co-op may make this a one to buy if the price is right.

Looks kinda like Metal Arms from the previous Xbox, if anyone remembers that was actually a really fun little game.

If it is half as good as Ratchet and Clank then it will be awesome.

#14 Pikmin is one of the latest games made by a true visionary in video games: Shigeru Miyamoto. You might not recognize his name, but he also made Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Animal Crossing, Star Fox and F-Zero, and even if you're retarded and living underwater you've heard of those...

And yeah, this definitely looks like a R&C clone.

@22 ... I don't believe he asked what Pikmin was, or who created Pikmin for that matter. In fact, he didn't ask for Miyamoto's track record either. I love when people need someone else to recognize their knowledge for some form of justification.

And 22, basically anyone who plays video games knows Miyamoto, your not special.

On Topic - This game looks weak. And it's EA, the online will be shut off in a year or two anyway. F-it.

@8 or what? This isn't really like pikmin. Take a look at overlord, that was. Except it was better than it.
