Ubisoft released a new trailer for Bloody Good Time . If you didn’t already know, Bloody Good Time is a multiplayer first person shooter coming later this month to the XBLA marketplace.
It features a distinct humorous take on horror movie stereotypical characters, like evil clowns, jocks and girls in bikinis battling it out in movie set-like maps. Seems like a cool way to celebrate Halloween. Check out the new trailer after the jump.
Beyond Good & Evil was a gem lost in a sea of bigger named releases back in 2003. While the game is regarded as one of the best of the last generation of consoles, it was largely ignored by the general gaming audience. I’m a huge fan of the franchise, so I was pleased to hear Beyond Good & Evil was coming back in downloadable form on XBLA and PSN.
I don’t have my last gen consoles anymore, so this is a chance to play one of my favorite games of the original Xbox days with cleaner graphics and added achievements. Apparently the game is native 1080p resolution, so it will be much sharper than previous versions. Hit the jump for new gameplay footage.

Videogame industry analyst Michael Pachter has looked into his crystal ball to see a $50 price cut for Xbox 360 consoles in 2011. He may have his share of enemies and skeptics, but when he tells us what we want to hear, there seem to be plenty of willing listeners.
In this case, Pachter’s estimates are based on what he sees as sound business practice: “We estimate that a $50 console price cut across the board will impact software sales by a positive 5%, and we expect Microsoft to lead with a cut some time in Spring 2011,” he told Industry Gamers last week.
Explosionade, developed by Mommy’s Best Games, has been delayed once more after a previous delay for a near release bug. However, this time the delay doesn’t arise from their internal code glitches or bugs, rather more Xbox Live Marketplace issues. Nathan Fouls, the studio head of Mommy’s Best Games, has posted on the studio’s development log that the Top Downloads portion of Xbox Live Marketplace can be “stuck for days, sometimes over a week.” Fouls claims that their games could lose a potential revenue boost from this feature and it hurts the players as well. By not updating accurately, many gamers may miss popular titles and think that nothing currently popular is worthwhile. Explosionade has been delayed indefinitely until Microsoft has responded to this issue. Quite a shame as the game was looking quite good and fun, but now we may never get it or at least have to wait a while longer.
