About Nathan Bowring

I'm a software developer who enjoys gaming, and I know how cliche that sounds. I've been playing XBLA games for some time now, and I'm a huge fan of the price and creativity of these games. Writing about them is almost as fun as playing them. Almost.

Fancy King of the Hill

New videos have been released showcasing one of The Fancy Pants Adventures' new multiplayer modes, King of the Hill. Above is creator Brad Borne explaining the new mode, and more gameplay videos are available after the jump. The objective of the new mode is to get as many squiggles (the game's main collectible) as you can, and try to keep control of the hill below the squiggle cannon. In the videos you can see some of the combat which will be unlocked in the game, and the various character customization options. The Fancy Pants Adventures will be available this spring.

XBLA's Most Wanted: Sam & Max Hit the Road SE

XBLA's Most Wanted: Sam & Max Hit the Road SE

Some franchises, regardless of quality, just never become very popular. One such example is the Sam and Max comic and video game series, which most people never heard of but have never played. Sam and Max: Hit the Road was one of LucasArts’ classic adventure games, first released in 1994. The game was based on the late 80’s comic series by Steve Purcell, who worked at LucasArts. It featured the wacky antics of a 6-foot tall dog and a hyperkinetic rabbity-thing, a duo who called themselves the Freelance Police.

The world they inhabit is wacky and unconventional while being chock full of jokes and puzzles. Recently, LucasArts have re-released their classic Monkey Island series in the XBLA in special editions featuring updated art and voices, modernizing it while retaining what made it great. Now would be a perfect time for Telltale Games, who now own the franchise, to re-release the Sam & Max that started it all.
