This Wednesday will see the latest round in the eternal battle between pirates and ninjas arrive on Xbox Live Arcade. Although we caught them coexisting on film at PAX 2008, know well that these two groups are still very much rivals, ready to take desperate measures (dodgeball, naturally) to settl...

Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball developer Blazing Lizard announced today it expects the title to release September 3 on XBLA for 800 MS points ($10).

When we initially heard about Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball, our first question was, "what about zombies and robots?" (Actually, we first wondered why pirates had top-billing, but that would've led to a long and pointless debate.) Fortunately, developer Blazing Lizard heard our cry and sent assuranc...
