Electronic Super Joy Looks Fun

While I still think the whole “silhouette platformer” bit has been played out and resurrected beyond death, I might make an exception for Electronic Super Joy. Maybe it’s my fondness for super-hard platformers coming out, or maybe it’s just that I have a weird soft spot for the DDR-esque tunes, courtesy of ENVY.

Electronic Super Joy is set to launch on December 7, for iPad, Android, Windows, Mac, and Linux… yep, Linux.

Fighting Fantasy Blood of the Zombies out on iOS & Android

Tin Man Games, esteemed purveyor of the finest Gamebook Adventures to the owners of iOS and Android devices the world over, has today released their first Fighting Fantasy gamebook conversion. It’s the latest in the series by franchise founder and current Eidos President Ian Livingstone, Blood of the Zombies. The title will tell you most of what you need to know about the story. I have it on good authority that the next Fighting Fantasy book up for the mobile treatment is the aged classic House of Horror. Spotting a theme here? So watch Tin Man for a (presumably human)¬†smorgasbord¬†of gory gratification in the near future.

More Neuroshima Hex. Oh Hell Yeah

You may remember me saying that I feel Neuroshima Hex is the best boardgame port to iOS devices, like, ever. It’s made the physical game obsolete. It remains in my regular rotation and I try to get a few games in per week. I do so love me some Hex.

There’s a new army in town and its name is the Steel Police. Watch the vid for a taste. The 2.3 update also includes support for iPhone 5 and iOS 6 and “improved AI” which I hope isn’t the case because the Hard level kicks my teeth in on a regular basis.

Full Price list is as follows:
Neuroshima Hex $2.99 (normally $4.99)
The Bundle of Five Armies $3,99 (normally 7,99)
New York army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
Neojungle army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
Smart army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
Vegas army $0.99 (normally $1.99)
new Steel Police army $0.99 (normally $1.99)

Worth every penny.

And Now, Your First Bit of Borderlands 2 DLC

Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty, the first of four planned Borderlands 2 expansion packs drops today and I couldn’t be happier. I just finished the main game yesterday morning and am in the midst of mopping up the last side quests while at the same time, going back through the game in True Vault Hunter mode. Yeah, I have Dishonored. Yeah, I have Sleeping Dogs. Yeah, I have Walking Dead Episode 4. I don’t care. I want more Borderlands 2, whether it be DLC or redoing the main game just with harder enemies and better loot. Those other games aren’t going anywhere and level 50 is a loooooooong way off.

More Tales from Dunwall

I was lax in posting these yesterday as the thought of hearing more of that awful, awful narration made me want to punch myself. I managed to muddle through it though, for you, so I hope you’re happy!

The first video is a charming story about a boy and his rat friend. The second is about the creator of the mask you’ll wear as you slice and dice your way through Dishonored. Neither make me envy the employees of the Dunwall Tourism and Travel Board.

Diaspora: Shattered Armistice Trailer

Up to this point I knew absolutely nothing about this game, but Battlestar Galactica fans, this freeware mod for Descent: Freespace 2 is for you. Hopefully the game itself is at least half as cool as this trailer for it. Seriously, it makes me want to go suit up. Right. Now.

If only I knew what became of my old CH Flightstick Pro and accompanying throttle. Not that myPC has an serial ports to connect them to. My goodness, it really has been a long time since the days of Wing Commander and X-Wing/Tie Fighter. And just why did I never get around to the Freespace games? Folly, I tell you. Pure folly.

Spotted at RPS.

The Borderlands Are Waiting

I’m just going to let this fantastic new trailer for Borderlands 2 speak for itself. My desire for this game is strong. Very strong.

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is PC-bound

I loved the original Rocketbirds from Ratloop Asia, so you can imagine my disappointment when Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken was announced as a PS3-exclusive. The scales of justice have tipped in my favor! Hardboiled Chicken is coming to the PC and can be pre-ordered at Rain Digital Games and GamersGate for $9.99.

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is also slated to hit Steam, although customers who pre-order through the above outlets will also receive a four-track EP from New World Revolution, which includes a remix of “Once I Was Lost.” I purchased the original New World Revolution EP two years ago, and it is most definitely worthy of a pre-order bonus.

Check out the Rain Digital Games or Rocketbirds websites for more trailers and screenshots.

Bastion Ventures to iPad Tomorrow

If you haven’t adventured with the Kid yet, or you just have a thing for gaming on mobile devices, Bastion from Supergiant Games is landing in the App Store for iPad tomorrow, August 30. This release of Bastion will include Stranger’s Dream (DLC for PC and Xbox 360), retuned weapons and Proving Grounds, Retina compatibility, and options for either gamepad-style controls or touchscreen controls.

You can check out the trailer after the break.

Indie Megabooth at PAX Prime

I won’t be at PAX Prime in Seattle this year, but if I were, I could tell you exactly where most of my time would be spent. 10 games will still be showcased in the PAX 10, but no longer will other indie video game developers be confined to the peripheral tables wedged between vendors selling trinkets of dubious quality.

The Indie Megabooth will host 30 developers displaying 32 games, including Super Time Force, Mark of the Ninja, Snapshot, Yata, Chasing Aurora, Guacamelee!, Monaco, and Antichamber. If you’re heading to PAX and you get the chance to try out some games at the Indie Megabooth, let us know what you think. You can find a full list of games and developers at the Indie Megabooth website.
