Lucidity, South Park Tower Defense moving into XBLA

This week, South Park fans have more to look forward to than just the premiere of new episodes for the back half of Season 13 on Comedy Central. South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play will join LucasArts' Lucidity on the Xbox Live Marketplace this Wednesday, both carrying an 800 MSP ($10) price tag.

As the name implies, South Park on XBLA will be a tower-defense-style action strategy game. Players can assume the role of series maybe-protagonists Cartman, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny, who can be controlled manually to further bolster the defenses of 11 multistage maps. The game features 16 different enemy types, ranging from hippies to cows to underpants gnomes, and is rated M for Mature.

Those looking for more of an E for Everyone game may be interested in Lucidity, a puzzle-platformer from LucasArts. The game sees a Little Red Riding Hood-looking child named Sofi attempting to reach her Nana by navigating a variety of dreamscape environments. Sofi remains in perpetual motion as the 2D levels progress, and gamers are also charged with collecting a number of difficult-to-reach objects dispersed throughout the levels.

i will reserve judgement till i download the demo. yes defense grid is the best of the best, pixeljunk monsters had me near throwing a ps3 controller at the tv (one of the few good uses for a ps3 controller in my opinion)

That doesn't look all that great. If nothing else, a South Park game at least needs humour, and I'm not sure that can really come across well in a tower defense game.

looks like any number of flash games I can currently play online, some even with a southpark theme. Not getting my money for this, especially with superior games on my aging Warcraft 3.
