posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1895 days, 9 hours, 7 minutes ago
Saturday, June 09, 2012 6:24:31 AM GMT
This E3 brought the announcement of Matter, a new Xbox-exclusive game from the mind of Gore Verbinski, the director of Rango, The Ring, and 75 percent of Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Matter appends a title to the first project from Blind Wink Games, which was formed in partnership with Universal Studios. Phil Spencer, Corporate VP of Microsoft Studios, says Verbinski was the one to pitch the game in the first place. (more)

Microsoft teases Avatar motorcycle game

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1906 days, 6 hours, 59 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 29, 2012 8:32:08 AM GMT
Microsoft's PlayXBLA site posted two "Secret Squirrel screenshots" depicting an unannounced Xbox Live game to be announced for real at E3. Of course, even without the title or any real details, we can get a pretty good idea of what the game's like: it's Avatar-shaped people racing and doing stunts on motorcycles in exotic, dirt-track environments.

Trials Evolution is 'highest grossing day-sales in Xbox Live Arcade history'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1943 days, 8 hours, 3 minutes ago
Sunday, April 22, 2012 7:28:21 AM GMT
Maybe you haven't heard – Trials Evolution is kind of a big deal. Such a big deal, apparently, that Microsoft says it's the, "highest grossing day-sales in Xbox Live Arcade history." What does that actually mean? Your guess is as good as ours, as Ubisoft unfortunately "don't have any numbers that we can share." At least that's what a rep tells us. Harumph. (more)

Xbox Live Arcade finally becomes a glorified Fez dispenser on Friday, April 13th.

Monday, February 13, 2012 8:45:30 AM GMT
Skulls of the Shogun has been teasing us with cartoonish, captivating strategy since 2010, and as its previous release window of "early 2012" is rapidly passing us by, we can finally take heart in some solid news. Developer Haunted Temple Studios says it's "pretty confident" that Skulls of the Shogun will launch on XBLA in the fall. (more)

Preview: 5 things to know about Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2028 days, 4 hours, 2 minutes ago
Saturday, January 28, 2012 11:28:57 AM GMT
The original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater holds a special place in my gaming heart, as it does in Conrad's. I was fresh out of high school without a lot of money, and the addictive nature of trying to complete the perfect run eliminated the need for any other game. It was the perfect fix for when I was happy, sad, or just plain bored, and it only got better with the second installment -- especially the Dreamcast version. (more)

Deja Review: Quarrel (XBLA)

Thursday, January 26, 2012 10:48:40 AM GMT
Quarrel was originally planned for XBLA, and then all the publishing deals fell through. Then Ignition took it on and began working with developer Denki on an iOS release -- which ended up coming out first. That makes this XBLA version, which was the original version, a re-release. Weird! (more)

Minecraft on XBLA working toward constant updates

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2034 days, 5 hours, 18 minutes ago
Sunday, January 22, 2012 10:13:00 AM GMT
Xbox Live Arcade is an excellent platform that's delivered some of our favorite games over the years, but the approval process for XBLA titles (and their subsequent updates) isn't quite as expedient as other platforms. For ever-changing games like Minecraft, where updates are as vital as they are frequent, this can create potentially destructive brand fragmentation where two distinctly difference experiences exist on two different platforms.

The latest Renegade Ops trailer introduces the two- and four-player co-op modes in the top-down vehicular shooter. In local co-op, the screen splits dynamically, with the divider rotating as needed; online co-op just puts more cars on your screen. Pretty intuitive, really. (more)

Galaga Legions DX explodes all of the aliens June 29th, at least on XBLA

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2244 days, 6 hours, 32 minutes ago
Sunday, June 26, 2011 8:59:21 AM GMT
Back in November of last year, Namco Bandai realized that what the Galaga series actually needs is neon lights and 400 trillion more aliens. Since then, the masochistic bullet-hell fanatics in Joystiq's Controller Destruction And Frustration Management Department have been anxiously awaiting Galaga Legends DX, the latest title in Namco Bandai's "Namco Generations" series of classic updates. If you've been sustaining yourself on what few morsels have been released so far, take solace in knowing that your ... (more)

Street Fighter 3: Third Strike Online Edition preview: Fight in the future

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2256 days, 6 hours, 14 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 9:17:11 AM GMT
Before I get started detailing what Street Fighter 3: Third Strike Online Edition is, I should mention what it isn't: an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive. I was under that impression, and so I was a little surprised to notice that, as I spoke with Capcom's Seth Killian, we were totally playing on a PS3. According to Killian, it's definitely coming to PSN, simultaneous with the XBLA release, and always was. (more)
