You could be in Twisted Pixel’s new game!

By  •  News

Twisted Pixel, developers of ‘Splosion Man, Comic Jumper and the upcoming Ms ‘Splosion Man are looking for extras for a video shoot, according to a posting on Craigs List. Anyone who has played ‘Splosion Man or Comic Jumper will know Twisted Pixel love themselves some crazy FMV, so it’s a somewhat safe assumption that this video shoot is for something along those lines.

The posting mentions that the shoot is for a game that has yet to be announced, so while one might assume it’s for Ms ‘Splosion Man it could be for something new. Perhaps a Comic Jumper sequel, that game had quite a bit of FMV after all, or could this be another new IP?

If you’d like to join in on the fun you can find the details and link to the posting below. The main details you should know however; the shoot will be at 10:45am this Saturday January 29th at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas. If you can get there then you’ve got a chance of being in the game! Read More

Hydrophobia revamp incoming, to be discounted.

Hydrophobia revamp incoming, to be discounted.

By  •  Videos, News

Hydrophobia developer Dark Energy Digital has released details of a pretty substantial patch coming to the hugely ambitious but ultimately disappointing XBLA title. The patch, entitled “Pure”, aims to rectify the many problems that reviewers and gamers has with the game upon it’s release.

The update coincides with a 400 point discount for the game, meaning it can now be picked up for 800 points rather than the original 1200 release price.

Almost all of the games major game mechanics have been changed in some fashion, the cover has been improved, gunplay has been redesigned to be more intuitive and fun, the graphics have been bumped up slightly and the button layout has been changed to be more in line with similar titles.

Whether these changes actually improve the game remains to be seen but it’s certainly impressive that any developer would go back and change their game in such a fundamental manner in response to complaints.

Check out what Tyler had to say about the game upon release in our XBLAFans review. You can see a video detailing the changes below, along with a screenshot gallery.
