Xbox 360 owners rejoice! Our love-struck hero is not only being joined by his roommate Wallace Wells as a new playable character, but up to three of your friends can join Scott Pilgrim’s posse via online multiplayer. However, these new powers also come with a 400 MS point price tag. Wait, we’re still using MS Points? Weren’t those phasing out this year?
The Ouya is making waves in the console world. Not many get a chance to be a part of history and fund a new console that could change the way we look at console gaming. But will it? Can it even make money? And what value is the experience if hackers are encouraged to do what they want?
Vinnk and Sean grapple with these questions, answer listener voicemail, and talk about the new Famicom Dojo episode The Neo Geo Affair, and the onslaught of videos that are being released every week for the rest of the summer!
It was first hinted at by a panel description for SDCC 2011, happening this weekend, but we now have a trailer to share and more information to be revealed at SDCC. THQ is bringing Voltron: Defender of the Universe to XBox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network. Retailing for about ten dollars, the game will feature 5 player co-op, 2 player co-op offline, and single player modes.
We will share more information as it comes out of the convention this weekend!
From our coverage of Pax East 2011, we talk to Mike McCain of Moonshot Games about the art and gameplay of their first title, Fallen Frontier.
A little background: this entire interview happened only because I was waiting a while to play this game. It wasn’t until I was reviewing this footage today that I realize the person taking so long before me was Tim Schafer.
aDam and I played for about 15 minutes and we were both really impressed. The game played smooth and the level we went through was really huge with lots of options for taking on enemies.
Split screen seemed really odd at first, but totally natural once you played it. Most games will split top/bottom or left/right for two players, but Fallen Frontier splits at an angle, and the line will move or tilt based on which way the players are heading and what they’re doing. When you rejoin, the line disappears and you share the screen again. Really cool idea.
Moonshot still has a long way to go on this title, but its clear they have some good ideas in place already. We can only hope they deliver on our expectations!
The best game ever is back with a new best game ever. Why is this version “DX?” Why is it great for new players as well as seasoned pros? Why am I wearing a hat?
