NiGHTS into dreams HD coming to XBLA this fall

Sega recently put up a seemingly random screenshot on Facebook and Twitter, which avid fans (our resident tipster lifelower included) linked back to a promotional picture for NiGHTS into dreams.

Sure enough, today Sega has officially announced an HD remake of the beloved Sega Saturn flying platformer. It will bring with it all the trappings one expects from an HD remake, including improved graphics (widescreen!), online leaderboards and achievements. In addition to that, you will also have the option to play the original Sega Saturn version of the game. Whether you’re an old fan or someone wanting to see what all the fuss is about, you can check out NiGHTS into dreams  when it comes to XBLA sometime this fall.

You can see the game in action in the announcement trailer above, and check below for a handful of screenshots. Read More

The Walking Dead: Episode 2 – Starved For Help review (XBLA DLC)

The Walking Dead: Episode 2 – Starved For Help review (XBLA DLC)

The Walking Dead was developed and published by Telltale Games. It was released June 27, 2012 for 400 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

With the first episode of The Walking Dead, Telltale Games gave us something very special. It was a game with a compelling story in which choice mattered. You cared enough about the believable characters and world they had created that the decisions were never easy.

We thought Episode 1 was pretty amazing so Episode 2, Starved For Help, had a lot to live up to. If you’re reading this then you probably already played the first episode, and you will have to own it to play this one. You’ll be pleased to know Telltale has not only met the expectations set by the first episode but easily exceeded them. Read More
