XBLAFancast Episode 74 – Clearly

To make up for the rather short show last week, we’re back to a more usual length. We brought in our Video Co-ordinator Shawn Saris to help with that. This week Perry tells us all about the final Summer of Arcade game Dust: An Elysian Tail, which he enjoyed quite a bit. We talk a bit about Hybrid, including that metagame, then you can hear me rant about Star Wars for a little bit.

We have actual news this week, then Andrew rounds out the show with the ol community corner.

There’s not much to talk about this week, with Deadlight out of the way and us failing to play much of anything else. We still manage to fill 40 minutes with some fun and a bit of XBLA talk though.

XBLAFancast Episode 72 – Everyone stop being funny

A long one this week, kicked off with a lengthy discussion of Deadlight. While Perry isn’t quite as harsh, we both agree it has some major issues.

News, a sort of Todd Talk and Crews’ Community Corner round out the rest of the show.

Deadlight review (XBLA)

Deadlight review (XBLA)

Deadlight was developed by Tequila Works and published by Microsoft Studios. It was released on August 1, 2012 for 1200 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

Deadlight is a 2D platformer with a survival horror bent, at least in theory, but we’ll get to that shortly. You play as Randall Wayne, a survivor of some kind of apocalyptic event, which has caused the dead to rise. Though they act like zombies, these particular undead have been branded “Shadows”, represented in-game as silhouettes with glowing red or white eyes.

Randall is searching Seattle for his wife and daughter, who he’s been seperated from since the start of the disaster. When the game begins, Randall is with a group of survivors, but they quickly go their seperate ways as Randall begins the search for his family.

With Summer of Arcade kicking off last week, we take some time to talk about Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD. Perry brings what little news there is, including the big Polytron patch story which gets us a bit riled up. Todd Talks about his excitement over Battleblock Theater being closer to release. Andrew brings the community question, and be sure to check out the game of the week N+.

Apologies for the dip in audio quality this week, we had some technical difficulties.
