No More Time to Explain coming to Xbox One

no time to explain

tinyBuild, the developer of No Time to Explain, announced that during PAX East a deal was made with Microsoft to bring a remake of the game to Xbox One. The remake will be called No More Time to Explain and will feature new content and an entirely remastered game; however, the game will still run on Unity. There is no announced time frame for a release but we can only hope to see the port in the near future.

No Time to Explain is a comedy platformer about chasing one’s future self through alternate realities. The game was Kickstarted and successfully made it through the Greenlight process and onto Steam where it found success. The upcoming port will be the first console version of the game and we couldn’t be happier to see it on Xbox One.

External storage for the Xbox One is still on its way, confirmed Xbox’s Director of Programming, Larry Hyrb, who is commonly known by his moniker, Major Nelson. This information was revealed in a subreddit thread about the Xbox One where Hyrb was responding to questions and comments from users. Major Nelson said that the update to allow for external storage is “coming soon” and that “media support” still needs to be checked on. Xbox One users will surely welcome this news, as the standard 500 GB drive included with the console is quickly filling up with the push toward fully downloadable retail games.

It is worth noting that this internal hard drive cannot be removed or upgraded by the user. Any additional storage space must be external via USB port.

Powerstar Golf Course Coyote Canyon DLC revealed

Powerstar Golf

At PAX East last weekend, Zoë Mode revealed the upcoming free DLC course for Powerstar Golf, Coyote Canyon. Pixxel of Ubisoft’s FragDolls hosts a video preview alongside Design Director Craig Leigh and Community Manager Rukari Austin courtesy of The Next Level.

Leigh reveals that the course is based off of a real-life national park that was converted to be a golf course. The rocky environment looks fantastic, and the green grass really pops against the earthy background. Free content-rich updates to games are always welcome — hopefully it plays as well as it looks. There’s no specific release date, but it is very likely that this will be released in the near future.

Is this concept art from NinjaBee’s next project?

NinjaBee Mech

While at PAX East last weekend XBLA Fans stopped by developer NinjaBee’s studio to take a look at Nutjitsu, which the studio told us entered Microsoft certification and should be releasing shortly. After our play session, the studio’s PR & Marketing Specialist Michael Purser had something else for us — a manila envelope full of photos he described as “recently declassified.”

Purser offered no further details in person and hasn’t responded to our email query asking what exactly we’re looking at in these photos. It’s likely that they are concept art from NinjaBee’s next game, especially considering that Nutjitsu for Xbox One is now content complete. The four photos, which you can view by clicking inside, contain imagery of what appear to be “top secret” plans for a mech; a scientist posing next to a giant fang in an airplane hangar; a Loch Ness Monster-type creature; and a World War II soldier aiming an artillery canon at a giant one-eyed beast.

We don’t know for certain what these Pacific Rim-esque pictures mean, but it’s possible NinjaBee is attempting to use the media to help it start a viral marketing campaign leading to the announcement of its next project.

New Spelunky world record

spelunky

Eighteen-year-old Twitch user YamaYamaDingDong has become the new record-holder for Spelunky, beating the previous high score by $4,000 with an impressive $3,109,850.

The previous world record of $3,105,850 was held by Bananasaurus_Rex and was achieved after a nearly seven-and-a-half-hour run with the Plasma Cannon two months ago. The record before that stood at a still impressive $2,980,000 before eventually being beaten by Bananasaurus_Rex.

YamaYamaDingDong’s run, however, was considerably shorter than Bananasaurus_Rex’s at a still lengthy four hours and forty-five minutes. Despite this shorter run, YamaYamaDingDong still managed to beat the score. The record-breaker still wants to keep improving his score and now wishes to aim for a score of $3.25 million at some point in the future.
