WPR Reviews: Comic Jumper

WPR Reviews: Comic Jumper

Comic Jumper: The Adventures of Captain Smiley walks the fine line between what is a fun game and a funny but average game. Initially, it veered towards the latter side and that worried me, given how good Twisted Pixel’s Splosion Man was at balancing the two factors.  However, the more I played through, the more […]

Blargh! X-Men Arcade Coming to PSN, XBLA

Blargh! X-Men Arcade Coming to PSN, XBLA

The classic quarter-eater, X-Men, is coming back, and unlike some recent releases that I dare not mention will remain relatively untouched. The game will remain a six-player ordeal and will support both local and online multiplayer (due to hardware limitations, the Xbox Live Arcade version will be limited to 4 locally, but the remaining slots […]

Castle Crashers PS3 on the Way

This might fall under the category of “Hey, 2008 called and they want their game back”, but we have word from The Behemoth themselves (via their blog) that they are in fact knee deep in the submission process for having the game placed on the PlayStation Network.

Amazing Geometry Wars Animation

This is what you get when you mix stop-motion animation and a videogame geek. If you’ve never experienced the awesomeness that is any of the Geometry Wars games, you’re really missing out. For some reason, having the simplistic graphics mixed with the eye melting visual effects just…works.

Limbo Coming to XBLA This Summer

Limbo Coming to XBLA This Summer

Independent Games Festival finalist Limbo, created by studio Playdead, will be released this year on Xbox 360, and I can hardly contain myself. We need a good platformer this year to rival the experience that Twisted Pixel gave us with ‘Splosion Man last year.

 

Coming soon to a 360 near you…DLC for MTG!

Coming soon to a 360 near you…DLC for MTG!

If I had a time machine, I would venture into the future day by day until I found the exact release date for Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers Duel the Dragon DLC.  Sadly, I don’t have such a fantastic time travelling device and I still don’t know when the content will be released.  But, the […]

A bit of my childhood, raped today on Xbox Live Arcade

The HD remix version of Turtles in Time (Turtles in Time Re-Shelled) has been released today on XBLA for 800 MSP ($10) and has most of the retro fans here at MWN sighing a bit. I think I’ll go home and play my SNES cart of the original game in defiance of admitting it got […]

 

The Ninja Turtles are a cheap date

The Ninja Turtles are a cheap date

I’ll admit it, I might have been a little harsh on the Summer of Arcade yesterday. Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to all the games except for Trails HD, and I think that all of them are fairly priced regardless. I was going to buy Turtles in Time Re-Shelled when it was 1200 […]
