XBLA and PSN get hazardous this week

Matt Hazard’s second shot at videogame fortune and glory, Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond, will be released on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this week. The fictional industry legend and his parody-filled side-scroller will hit Xbox Live Arcade on Wednesday and PlayStation Network on Thursday for 1200 Microsoft Points and $14.99, respectively; Rescuing one’s 8-bit self from an evil Russian general is not a cheap task, it appears.
