XBLAFancast Episode 77 – Paradox

XBLAFancast Episode 77 – Paradox

With everyone out for PAX and such, this week I roped in our Video Co-ordinator Shawn and Facebook Guy Kyle. We talk at length about Rock Band Blitz and The Walking Dead (no spoilers though) before moving onto news and then a nice big dose of community talk.

Our previous RSS has run into some issues, so we'll be switching to a new one as of this episode. Unfortunately that means the old iTunes feed is also going to change. But that will take a week or two, in the meantime you can just use the new RSS in iTunes and it will work just the same.

The Walking Dead: Episode 3 – Long Road Ahead review (XBLA DLC)
5 years ago

The Walking Dead: Episode 3 – Long Road Ahead review (XBLA DLC)

The Walking Dead was developed and published by Telltale Games. It was released August 29, 2012 for 400 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

Episode 3 of The Walking Dead is not fun, you will not enjoy the experience. You'll walk away from it with a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, and possibly tears in your eyes. It is a harrowing, depressing and almost hopeless tale, even more so than the two episodes preceding it.

The worst part of all that? It is an experience you absolute must take part in, this is a game that will make you feel and think things you'd never have considered a game could. In three short episodes Telltale Games have become masters of the zombie apocalypse, telling horribly believable, shocking stories through an interactive medium. Read More

XBLAFancast Episode 76 – Take two

Bit of a slapshot show this week, so much so that rather than put outtakes at the end I just went ahead and left them in the main show. You're welcome!

Todd provides most of the game talk this week, Perry brings the news cause that's what he does then we ramble our way toward the end. Fun!

Humble Hearts' Dust: An Elysian Tail, takes a tried and true formula and adds some oft-times breathtaking art to make an incredibly solid package.

XBLAFancast Episode 75 – The world we game in

This week there's a whole lot of game talk, including a good portion about Dust and sadly a fair bit about The Expendables 2. I stumble through the news in Perry's absence and then we fire through the Community Corner.

XBLA Fans Roundtable: Summer of Arcade 2012 – Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD

This year's Summer of Arcade promotion has been a contentious one, most would agree it was one of (if not the) weakest offerings we've seen since the promotion began in 2008.

Now that all the games have been released, we here at XBLA Fans thought it'd be a good time to look back at the five games that were part of the promotion. Starting today and continuing every weekday we will be posting a roundtable discussion between our writers, focusing on a game a day. We'll be going by order of release so let's kick things off with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD. Read More
