Check Out Skul
Skul is a brand new pixel-art side-scrolling rogue-lite that’s out on Steam now. It has a premise where you can switch out Skul’s skull to change out the character’s class. From what I’ve seen so far, there’s a pretty large number of skull-types, so there’s a lot of variety in the gameplay. Add to that […]
Fez, The Rotating Camera Game
I like Fez, I’m excited to play Fez, I wish Fez was out already. What I don’t like, though, is that Fez trailers seem to consist of as little game play as possible, with added rotating camera. Just in case you’re not sure, at this point, that you’re going to need to rotate the camera […]
Super Meat Boy Review
Super Meat Boy is a platformer about a boy without skin named Meat Boy who must save his girlfriend, Bandage Girl, from Dr. Fetus. Aside from having the best story ever it’s also hard. Very, very hard. I’ve died over 3,000 times (which isn’t an exaggeration, the game keeps tracks of deaths) and haven’t completed […]
Atlus has announced a sequel to Trine, a puzzle / platformer. Looks pretty nice. Trine 2 will be available digitally Spring, 2011.
Donkey Kong Country Returns E3 Trailer
Donkey Kong Country Returns looks great, I love the 2D game play similar to the SNES games. The game features same-screen co-op two player, and it’s being developed by Retro , the same guys who successfully transitioned Metroid into 3D with Metroid Prime.
Metroid: Other M E3 Trailer
Looks pretty cool, but I’m not sure how much 2D vs. 3D game play they’ll be. I’d personally rather more 2D then 3D, but either way the games looking really good. Metroid: Other M currently has an August 31, 2010 for North America.
Castlevania Harmony of Despair at E3
Castlevania Harmony of Despair, a new 2D Castlevania produced by Koji Igarashi (Symphony of the Night, Harmony of Dissonance) is on display at E3. The game is reportedly in hi-definition, features six-player multiplayer and is for Xbox Live Arcade. Awesome. Also, Harmony of Despair features multiple classic Castlevania characters such as Alucard and Soma Cruz, […]
Mega Man 10 Retro Commercial
I love how Capcom takes the retro look even into their commercials. If I saw that when I was a kid I would have wanted the game. And more locks on the door to my room. And a nude poster on my door.
Mega Man 10 Out For Wii, Coming Soon For PS3, Xbox
Capcom’s latest retro Mega Man is out today for the WiiWare today and will be out March 11th on the PSN and March 31st on XBLA. Why three different days? I have no idea, maybe it’s more fun that way. Full press release, below…
Star Guard is a pretty awesome retro platformer, without being as annoying or tedious as a retro platformer. The game uses a great checkpoint system, every so often it saves your progress so if you die you don’t restart the whole level. The story is pretty awesome, too. “Guide the spaceman through the castle and […]
Mega Man 10 Trailer
I’m guessing Dr. Wily is doing all kinds of bad things and it’s up to Mega Man to kick a bunch of bad robot’s asses. Mega Man 10 is coming to WiiWare, Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Store in March 2010. Full press release, below:
Lucasarts Announces New Platformer Lucidity
Lucasarts, at least in recent years, has focused primarily on Star Wars and Indiana Jones games. They used to do other stuff, especially in the mid 90’s (their complete list of games is here). Perhaps attempting to branch out again, Lucasarts unveiled a new 2D platformer on GTTV today. Lucidity is part 2D platformer, part […]
