Joe Danger 2: The Movie review (XBLA)

Joe Danger 2: The Movie review (XBLA)

Joe Danger 2: The Movie was developed by Hello Games and published by Microsoft Studios. It was released Sept. 14, 2012 for 1200 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

Every time we go to the movies, we see the death-defying daredevil antics that stuntmen go through. Sometimes it’s as simple as crashing a car a specific way or driving an ATV across deadly terrain filled with traps and spikes. Joe Danger has seen his share of stunt-work in the past but he wasn’t ready for the biggest job of his life: his own movie.

Joe Danger 2: The Movie is the sequel to the original Joe Danger (Special Edition on XBLA) but instead of just making another motorcycle stunt-driving game, they took a much better direction. As Joe, you’ll have to go through stunts in the movie, and the script is full of variety. But we might have an Oscar-caliber XBLA game on our hands. A sequel that feels like it has more life and deserves to sit in your VHS collection with Commando and Speed.

*UPDATE* Joe Danger: The Movie goes gold, releasing this September 14

By  •  Media, Videos, News

Joe Danger: The Movie, the sequel to last year’s Joe Danger: Special Edition (which itself was an update/port of Joe Danger from the PlayStation 3) has gone gold. Developer Hello Games tweeted the good news yesterday, and the studio’s Sean Murray further spoke of the game’s progress and development with TheSixthAxis. He confirmed this would be the last we would see of Joe. “I’m not going to work on a new Joe Danger game again,” stated Murray, “which is really sad and amazing at the same time.”

The game takes daredevil Joe Danger’s antics to the next level. In Joe Danger: The Movie the lovable stuntman takes on Hollywood. He’ll ski down a dangerous slope, chase bad guys on his police motorcycle, and even ride a mine cart a la Indiana Jones. We adored the first game, so we’re really looking forward to seeing what else Joe gets himself into. Hit the jump for a refresher trailer.

UPDATE: We’ve received confirmation that Joe Danger: The Movie will launch September 14 for 1200 MSP.

XBLA Fans: PAX East Preview Hub

Believe it or not my favorite part about video games isn’t the games themselves but the way they bring people together. Arguably no show demonstrates this bond better than PAX. Thousands of likeminded individuals flooded Boston this past Easter weekend. It didn’t matter where you worked or what you did or what you had to do when you hit the ground again on Monday; for one glorious weekend everyone was an equal: a gamer. It didn’t matter if your weapon was a die, a mouse, a controller or one’s own body. Everyone at this show had a passion for games.

A few of us from XBLA Fans made the trip and had the honor of mingling and checking out some of the upcoming XBLA titles for 2012 and beyond. We were able to hear developers in their element talking to fans about their projects. It was an amazing experience. Our own Andrew Crews has already elaborated on this issue, but in the end you remember the little things. That being said, there were some amazing games. Check out our full breakdown below!

PAX East: Lights, camera, danger with Joe Danger: The Movie

By  •  Previews


Hello Games told us the inspiration behind Joe Danger: The Movie was a bunch of VHS movies. One of the members of the team didn’t want them and were going to throw them out but they were some awesome movies like Robocop, Die Hard and other awesome action movies. So what if they applied all those ethics to our dear stuntman Joe Danger? You get balls to the wall action with so much variety than their previous game.
