XBLAFancast – Iron Brigade interview

I recently had the chance to talk to Iron Brigade (AKA Trenched) Project Lead Brad Muir from Double Fine. Brad talks a bit about the upcoming update and European release for Iron Brigade, which will include a bunch of new content. He also outlines what we can expect from the first DLC pack, Rise of the Martian Bear which sees the Iron Brigade story take the fight against the tubes to Mars.

After that we get into a discussion of XBLA in general and talk about some of the pros and cons of the service as well as what the service will hopefully evolve into.

Thanks to Brad for coming on the show and keep checking back for news on that update, which should be out very very soon.

XBLA games you can’t pass on the cheap: Volume 1

XBLA games you can’t pass on the cheap: Volume 1

By  •  Features

In the past few years we’ve often had people ask us what Xbox Live Arcade games are worth the money, but unlike us they usually don’t shell out a lot on XBLA games each year. It makes sense, after all 1200 MSP every month or so adds up in the end. Every site has those “you should buy it” lists where games like Limbo, Braid, Castle Crashers, Bastion, and Trials HD sit, but sometimes with other games you’re still not convinced. That being said here’s list of games you shouldn’t pass up on a sale. After all, we’re all on a budget. So if you’re one of those that won’t buy it at retail price no matter how good the reviews are, take a look at this list for the best titles you can find on sale.

The Martian Bear rises in Iron Brigade DLC

Double Fine have finally detailed the DLC pack for Iron Brigade (formerly Trenched), it will be called Rise of the Martian Bear. Before being defeated at the end of Iron Brigade Vlad, creator and evil overlord of the Monovision, managed to download his consciousness into his pet bear. Clearly the only logical step from there is to go to Mars, so that’s what he does. It’s there he plans to rebuild his Monovision empire, so the mobile trench brigade must follow and take Vlad down again.

In addition to new campaign missions the DLC will include more levels for the games soon to released survival mode. The survival mode itself will be part of the upcoming title update/European release of Iron Brigade. There’s no release date for either the update or the DLC, but the update is expected very soon.

Check after the jump for some screens as well as an interview with Brad Muir from Double Fine conducted by Gamespot, which includes some footage of the new content.
