XBLAFancast Episode 67 – Community punching

Andrew returns from his travels and he brings with him a long list of games he’s been playing. So needless to say the what we’ve been playing segment is dominated by him. Before we head to news we all share our thoughts on Indie Game: The Movie, which is now out to purchase around the web.

Perry hits the news as usual and Andrew rounds things out with the Community Corner.

XBLAFancast Episode 66 – Unequip your socks

Bit of a low key show this week, not much in the way of news or big releases coming off of the E3 blow-out. We still manage fit in over an hour of XBLA talk though, with a few tangents.

These Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing screens are dark and full of terrors

These Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing screens are dark and full of terrors

NeocoreGames has released the first in-game screenshots of their upcoming action-RPG, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. Up until now we’ve just had a teaser trailer and some concept art to go on, but these screens finally give a glimpse of what the game will actually look like. Though the interface seen makes us think these may be from the PC version of the game, so that aspect could very well differ from the XBLA version. The game definitely looks like a fairly traditional isometric action-RPG, with a dark gothic styling.

The Incredible Adventures will follow the son of famed vampire hunter Van Helsing, who himself is also named Van Helsing, fancy that. It promises ” a tale wrought with wry humor and snappy dialogue” and “a larger-than-life hero possessing a dark yet romantic charm”. Of course that tells us nothing about the gameplay, luckily we checked it out at E3 and will be bringing you more details in our preview soon. Read More

Fez update has entered certification (again)

Fez update has entered certification (again)

By  •  News

Back in May we reported that Polytron had sent their first patch for mind-bending puzzle-platformer Fez to certification. The update was set to rectify many issues that had popped up after the games release, such as frame-rate dips and crashing. Unfortunately a couple of problems caused the update to fail cert and it was sent back to Polytron, who then ran into their own issues trying to reproduce the error. Thankfully those have finally been resolved the the update is now back in cert, meaning it should hopefully appear in a few weeks. You can find the full Facebook post about the issue below, if you’d like just a little more detail from the developer themselves.

If you haven’t already checked out Fez then have a read of our review to find out why you should, and if you get stuck you can always use our handy guide.
