TGS 06: Fuzion Frenzy demo, Portal trailer hit XBL

Day three of Microsoft's TGS Bringing It Home content now on Marketplace; new videos heavy on Japan-exclusive films.

by

The latest Xbox Live Marketplace content that's part of Microsoft's "Bringing it Home" promotion is now available for download. Today's batch includes nine files, six of which are exclusive to Japan audiences.

Third time is the charm for Xbox 360 demo hunters, as day three yields the online event's first downloadable game trial. A 293MB demo of Hudson's Fuzion Frenzy 2 features three of the many multiplayer minigames--Sumo Paint, Conveyer Belt Chaos, Ice Treasure Hunt--and supports up to four players.

However, those hoping to battle buddies over the Internet will have to wait for the game's retail release in early November--the demo does not support online play.

The remaining downloadable files are all videos. Leading the way is the trailer for Portal, one of the included bonuses coming to the Xbox 360 version of Half-Life 2: Episode 2. The topsy-turvy first-person shooter challenges "test subjects" to get out of harrowing situations with the help of a gun that tears through the fabric of space and time.

The only other video available video for download outside of Japan is titled "TGS Showfloor video 1." The rest are "TGS Showfloor video Day 1," "GM Sensui Interview" (Xbox Japan boss Takashi Sensui), and the first four "Xbox Live The Party" videos.

As part of the "Bringing It Home" promo, Microsoft will add new content to Xbox Live Marketplace each day through September 29, the conclusion of the X06 event in Barcelona, Spain.

I liked the old DJ for Fuzion Frenzy better. Still had this one pre-ordered a while ago. Loved the original.

Im with most of you, except I like the FF2 demo. But Portal is one of the most interesting games I have seen in a long time. Im keeping an eye out for that one.

HudsonSoft reminds me of a dud from the 80's--Hudson HAWK...both crap. At least Portal looks promising.

Ugh, Portal is going to be something that is going to be beat the first day by a few gamers. Which will brag about it. And I'll be on the first level frustrated out of my mind:( I'll still end up buying it though:) LOL

You cant seriously want a mouse and keyboard for the ps2? Imagine how much your fingers would hurt after doing the stairwell bit on mgs1. It was bad enough with the ps1 controller. Portal looks good but i would be suprised if a large faction of its buyers didn't throw it out a window with frustration, i mean comeone, imagine trying to describe a level on a walkthrough.

I tried that Fusion Frenzy 2 demo and thought it was crap, but portal sounds like one of those games you just have to try. I hope the fps controller MS promised will be out for HL2. And then I raise my head to the sky and cries out as loud as I can; "When will the time come when mouse and keyboards are no longer restricted to pc's?(this gamer is aware of the 3rd party products for both ps2 and xbox).

I enjoyed Fuzion Frenzy. This, however, is absolutely horrible. Hudson is on a roll butchering 4 player party games. What's next, Hudson? Feel like taking an axe to Mario Party?

FF was a great party game. Sumo rules in all its forms. I am looking forward to the new one even though I was not that impressed with the demo. Portal blows my mind.

Fuzion Frenzy 2 demo was pretty good, for a party game. It will probably be really big on live. The Half-Life 2 version coming to 360 is looking like the best deal of the century for 59.99. The Original Half-life 2 for pc, episode one, episode two, team fortress 2, and portal.....awesome.

the demo was good but incredible short games.I wish they demo held more mini-games. But looks good. And portals was great also

The fusion frenzy demo is not worth the time!!Bad Graphics and boring gameplay-if hudson soft is developing for xbox 360 they should focus on some of their cool old properties instead of this garbage-save time and download something else

Demoage! About time, MS. Oh yeah, Portal pwns. As many people around here, own HL2 on the PC and am buying it again. I wisely avoided Episode One though, as I had forseen this port.... though ne'er could I have forseen the bounty that lie alongside her!

Keep it coming, Microsoft. I'm downloading those videos as I type this. And Portal is going to own.

I bought half-life 2 for the PC, but what the hell, I'll buy it for the 360, too. That way, I can get episodes 1 and 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal.

Me also want portal... now! Team Fortress 2 looks damn sweet too!

Portal looks awsome, as does Team Fortress 2. I can take or leave HL2, but those other games make the purchase well worth the money.

Fuzion Frenzy 2!!! Sweet! I can't imagine anyone with friends not liking this game. No, FF was not Halo/Ninja Gaiden/etc., but it was a fun game. I guess too many people are worried they might tarnish their 'hardcore' image by playing a party game. Oh well, their loss.

I actually had a good time with the first Fusion Frenzy, so I am looking forward to the sequel. It's a good party game. Guess I'm one of the few though..

FF is Final Fantasy! Let's not have another GoW situation here, where it stands for both God of War and Gears of War. Whereas those games are both very ppular, no one can compare Fusion Frenzy to Final Fanasy in terms of... anything.

Fuzion Frenzy is pretty fun.....IF you have friends.

FF2? Misleading advertising! A trap to make some people believe it's Final Fantasy 2, even though it would have no common business on XBL. Nobody wants to download Fusion Frenzy 2, hopefully better demos are on the way from TGS.
