In accordance with its “games are games are games” philosophy described at the Xbox One Reveal, Microsoft has rebranded the Xbox Live Marketplace as the Xbox Games Store.
Twisted Pixel, creator of The Maw, ‘Splosion Man, The Gunstringer and more, kicks its newest game LocoCycle into high-gear for the launch of the Xbox One in November. On day one, you’ll be able to download this high-octane game for $19.99 on the Xbox Games Store, formerly Xbox Live Marketplace.
If you’re at PAX this weekend, swing by Twisted Pixel’s booth. A playable demo of the game is available and features a new location along with more info related to its story. A full sized replica of I.R.I.S., the sentient, weaponized motorcycle on the run, will also be on display. Sorry, no Freddy Rodriguez.

If you aren’t unable to make it to PAX, check out these screen shots Twisted Pixel just released after the break:
