Minecraft: Skyrim Edition coming soon

Anyone who’s played Skyrim probably remembers the Minecraft easter egg on top of the Throat of the World. Minecraft will soon be returning the favor, releasing a new Mash-Up Pack centered around Bethesda’s fifth Elder Scrolls game. Considering both games feature mining, sword fighting, undead enemies, giant spiders, and (of course) dragons, this combination is a perfect match.

The pack includes a Skyrim-themed texture pack, a remodeled user interface, 40 character skins, and over 20 selections from the game’s original soundtrack. Players will be able to explore the homeland of the Nords in a pre-built world containing recreations of Whiterun, Riverwood, and Bleak Falls Barrows. The pack currently doesn’t have a release date, but will be priced at $3.99/£2.69/€3.79.

Doctor Strange coming to Marvel Pinball

A new hero will soon be added to the Marvel Pinball lineup, coming to save Earth from the greatest powers from the darkest dimensions. Doctor Strange must stop rival sorcerer Baron Mordo, who plans to steal Strange’s mantle as Sorcerer Supreme. Mordo has called upon demonic forces to aid him, including the Fear Lord Nighmare and Dread Dormammu. Meanwhile, the Lord of Chaos, Shuma-Gorath, hatches his own evil scheme from the back of the table.

Voice-over lines and situations have been adapted from 50 years of Doctor Strange comics to create this table. The Master of the Mystic Arts will face one of his greatest challenges yet, but the player will be the one with the power to cast spells with perfect pinball shots. The Doctor Strange Pinball Table for Pinball FX2 will be released this December.


Contrast’s new trailer is easy on the eyes and ears

Contrast -- Dawn and Didi

Compulsion Games’ most recent trailer for its forthcoming download-only game, Contrast, highlights a new song from the game’s original soundtrack. The new jazzy single is titled House on Fire; lyrics are by Compulsion with music by WaveGeneration Audio, while jazz singer Laura Ellis provides the sultry vocals.

Contrast tells the story of Didi and her friend Dawn — an imaginary friend capable of shifting into the shadow dimension. With Dawn’s power, players will navigate the puzzle/platform world of Contrast while uncovering the mystery of what happened to Didi’s parents. With its noir-esque visuals and atmosphere and a soundtrack that’s shaping up nicely, Compulsion’s new game looks very promising. Check out our hands-on preview from E3 2013 here.

Contrast hits the Xbox Games Store November 15, 2013 for $14.99. Watch the new music trailer after the break.

Minecraft Natural Texture Pack coming soon


Hot off the heals of the Plastic Texture Pack, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is already getting another new texture pack. The Natural Texture Pack substitutes the original, cartoony look of Minecraft with a more realistic look for the environment and animals. There’s currently no release date or price, but if the previous texture pack is any indication we should expect a $1/£0.65/€0.95 price tag. Several screenshots have surfaced showing off the new textures. Check them out after the jump.

Alien Rage aims for October 18 on Xbox Live

Alien Rage Promo

City Interactive’s homage to the old-school first-person shooter, Alien Rage, finally has a release date for Xbox Live according to its official Facebook page, targeting October 18 worldwide. The sci-fi shooter was slated for a simultaneous launch on both PC and Xbox Live at the end of September, but saw the console version pushed back unknown reasons.

We previously covered the differences between between the PC and upcoming console versions, as news surfaced that the title would forgo cooperative and competitive multiplayer on the Xbox Live offering. It appears the overall scope of the game, which will now be a solely singleplayer experience, was scaled back – potentially causing the slight delay.

Pricing has not yet been confirmed, but it’s likely the console port will be comparable to the already-live PC version priced at $19.99 on Steam. However, with a reduced feature set – namely cooperative multiplayer – that number could come in slightly smaller.

New Killer Instinct trailer features Sadira with a bonus teaser

Sadira is the first completely new character revealed for the 2013 reimagining of the classic, Killer Instinct. The name Sadira is Persian in origin and means lotus tree, which is often seen as a symbol for purity and peace. The symbolism behind the name yields a stark contrast from the agile, spider-focused fighter featured in the trailer, who has the ability to shoot webs to grab or injure other fighters. Note that the end of Double Helix’s trailer also teases the return of Black Orchid, famous for her finisher in which she flashes the other character, causing them to have a heart attack.

Killer Instinct is setting out to take full advantage of the Xbox One: running at a smooth 60 frames-per-second and utilizing Kinect to track who is holding the controller at any given time and switching the control setup based on the current player’s preferences. Killer Instinct will also feature a new pricing strategy, which allows characters to be bought individually for $5 or as a bundle for $20, an ultimate bundle for $40 is also being released and will include all the characters along with their all costumes and accessories for every character as well as the original Killer Instinct.
