lol, people that are boycotting games because of mundane reasons really are silly because for one you wouldn't be able to enjoy a game that's bound to be great and also the developer of said game you're boycotting wouldn't even care about your reasons for not buying the game. (and japanese devs wouldn't give a damn about it also)



hmm i'm thinking..

Dust
Deadlight
Class3
Hybrid
Crimson Dragoon

or that baseball game by grasshopper, it's xbla isn't it?

No way would Class 3 be ready for this summer..

Dust: An Elysian Tail — Set in the beautiful yet mysterious world of Falana, this game chronicles protagonist Dust’s journey to liberate an oppressed village, and rediscover his past. He is aided by an ancient sword, Ahrah, and his helpful if unreserved sidekick, Fidget. Meticulously hand-animated and painted, this episode of Elysian Tail welcomes exploration, platforming, and above all else, mastery of a fighting system that rewards skilled gamers.
YES!

I'm VERY excited to finally let people get their hands on the game :) Aside from a brief showing for Dream.Build.Play in 2009, this will the firs wanted to let you knowt time the game has been made playable to the public. I'll be hanging around in the XBLA booth, so please say hi if you come by! I really hope you like what you see.

Hi Noogy. I wish I could attend Pax East to try Dust out. Regardless I just wanted to let you know that your game looks fantastic and I'm glad it is coming soon. I think what James Silva has done with combat in The Dishwasher is fantastic and I think your games beauty and combat has me really excited. Thanks for making a game like this. Especially after we got Ninja Gaiden 3.

In the Realm of AWESOMEnews:



Priced at 800msp.

From their Facebook said:
Awesome, Awesome, AWESOME... NAUTS! Lasers will burn, Robots will scream and Monkeys will fly! The intergalactic band of heroes is finally ready to be launched onto Xbox Live Arcade and the Sony Entertainment Network!

Present your Space Calendars and mark the following dates:
- On May 1st the game will launch on the PlayStation 3 in North America.
- On May 2nd it will launch everywhere else, on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
- The game will also be playable at PAX East from April 6th, 7th and 8th at booth #754.

For those surprised by this sudden burst of Awesomeness, it's about a game. A downloadable game. An awesome downloadable game that contains backstabbing chameleons, giant exploding robots and yes, laser wielding flying monkeys. Check out the new video to see them all in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3j_qDLVzi4. These heroes battle it out in teams of 3 in split-screen and/or online! In this sidescrolling MOBA they will be blasting enemy robots and heroes, upgrading their gear and destroying enemy structures on their way to victory!

Countdown for launch will soon commence and be broadcast live through facebook.com/Awesomenauts and twitter.com/Ronimogames.

Good to see a lot of these long-awaited titles getting properly dated! Really looking forward to this one myself!

-----

And also glad we're to see more of Dust: AET soon:) It's great that, even since it's first announcements, not much has come out on LIVE to actually challenge it. Really ready to Oooo and Ahhhh at the beauty of it all soon!

I thought Microsoft and Telltale had problems with putting stuff on XBLA.

Telltale is releasing Episode 1 as a full XBLA game, and 2-5 as DLC for it. Not ideal, but it's the best they can do without any way to pre-order the full season on XBLA.

Hopefully the pinball arcade has at least decent presentation. The presentation is abysmal on iOS. The physics are good and the gameplay is good, but on the iOS version the menus look like they were ripped out of a geocities page from the 90's.

When does the first episode of Walking Dead take place ? I've only watched the first season and I wouldn't want to be spoiled.

If I remember correctly, it's based on the comics and takes place before any of the events in the show or the comics. I do think the people,you run into that are known like Glen, will be modelled after their tv show counterparts.

If you're interested, you should catch up on the Talking Dead series Telltale has done. It goes into detail about the game and what to expect, it's on YouTube and Telltales site.

It takes place before the events of the tv show/comic and stars a mostly different cast of characters.

It's also set in the comic book universe, not the tv show one.
