Space Giraffe, Street Trace: NYC XBLA Bound This Wednesday

Space Giraffe
Street Trace: NYC

This Xbox Live Arcade Wednesday should easily prove to be the most exciting in quite a long while, mainly for the launch of Jeff Minter’s psychedelic shooter game Space Giraffe, which will no doubt be a gem with its 100 levels of schmup action and trippy graphics. This week will also see the release Street Trace: NYC, a hoverboard racing/arena combat game set amongst the urban underworld of New York City, complete with 8-player Live action and 4-player split-screen. Both titles will be available on the Live Arcade on August 22nd at 9:00 a.m. GMT (2:00 a.m. PDT).
