Mojang is crazy about Minecraft on XBLA in this new trailer


As today marked the official release of Minecraft for PC, a brand new trailer premiered today for its upcoming trip to XBLA. In the trailer, we see Notch and the rest of Mojang coding away when the XBLA version arrives at their offices. After they excitedly run to the couch, the entire office ride through mines, kill animals for food and watch out for creepers. The game so far looks exactly like what we’ve come to love about Minecraft right down to the great blocky graphics and menu scheme. Keep an eye and a pickaxe ready for this one when it hits in 2012.

Rewind Review: Perfect Dark (XBLA)

Perfect Dark was ported to the Xbox 360 by 4J Studios.  It was originally developed by Rare and published by Microsoft Game Studios.  It was released March 17, 2010 for 800MSP.

Players first learned about the Xbox Live Arcade port in April 2009 via a single leaked screenshot of a developer’s dashboard which showed the icon of Joanna Dark behind the developer’s avatar.  The leak was confirmed in June of that same year by none other than Xbox Live’s Major Nelson.  But like so many games from yesteryear consumers had doubts as to whether the game truly lived up to their memories.
