Fusion: Genesis review (XBLA)

Fusion: Genesis review (XBLA)

Fusion: Genesis was developed by Starfire Studios and published by Microsoft Studios. It was released November 9, 2011 for 800 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

Fusion: Genesis certainly isn’t the first game on XBLA to put you in control of a spaceship but it is definitely the most ambitious. While it may not have the scope or freedom of a game like EVE Online it comes closer than you might expect.

After a brief tutorial area in which you are given the basics on controls and combat you are dropped into the world and allowed to go at your own pace. This means taking on missions, joining factions, mining ore and of course buying bigger, better ships. Read More

XBLAFancast Episode 38 – Jet Set …Radio

XBLAFancast Episode 38 – Jet Set …Radio

It’s a pretty slow time for XBLA games and XBLA news at the moment, so there’s not a lot of XBLA discussion on this weeks show. That doesn’t stop us though, as the regular crew of myself, Perry and Todd are joined by John Carson to talk for around an hour.

Subjects include Fusion: Genesis, Skyrim, Dragons, Modern Warfare 3, Jet Set Radio and Dragons. It’s a fairly offbeat show (with some cursing, apologies) but we think it made for a fun one. So give it a listen and let us know what you think!

XBLAFancast Episode 37 – Space!

By  •  Podcast

A slightly late show this week, technical problems and business were the cause. Once again we’ve got lots of discussion though, so hopefully that’ll make up for it!

Todd and Perry have been playing a bunch of Guardian Heroes (check out Perry’s review) so they talk the so 90’s it hurts brawler for a while. Then Todd and I move onto Fusion: Genesis (review forthcoming), we try our best to describe our time so far with this ambitious, if confusing, space-faring game.
