Limbo for Xbox One appears on Korean Ratings Board

Limbo possibly coming to Xbox One

Xbox 360 puzzle-platformer Limbo could be headed to the Xbox One, a Korean Ratings Board listing suggests.

Microsoft Korea submitted “Limbo Xbox One” to the board for classification on October 17. While the submission is something short of a confirmation of the existence of an Xbox One port, but many games have first been discovered through various countries’ ratings board listings. XBLA Fans has reached out to developer Playdead about the listing and will update this story in the (unlikely) event that the studio issues a response.

Playdead first released Limbo on Xbox Live Arcade in 2010 before porting it to PC, iOS and PlayStation 3 and Vita. Last year, XBLA Fans ranked the game as one of Xbox Live Arcade’s top 10 releases, noting that its dark atmosphere made players fearful of every boss encounter.

This year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo saw Playdead unveil the existence of its next game, Inside, through a trailer showing a boy hiding among rows of seemingly lifeless people. The ID@Xbox title will release on Xbox One first in 2015 before being brought to other platforms.

Get a sneak peek at The Behemoth’s Game 4 next week

The Behemoth Game 4 stream for Extra Life

The Behemoth has been careful to only reveal information about its next game at a slow trickle. The developer elected not to show or tell the press or public anything relating to Game 4 when it was first announced earlier this year at PAX East. Later, an initial teaser asked gamers if they could deduce what type of game it was rather than telling them.

Unless you had the chance to attend PAX Prime and play the game for yourself, you’re probably still not terribly familiar with how Game 4 plays. Next week, though, The Behemoth will give everyone a chance to see its latest in action when it streams the game as part of the Extra Life Charity event. The studio will be streaming the game on Raptr’s Twitch channel from 3:00 – 4:00 pm PST on October 24. The Behemoth has confirmed that aside from introductions and some info about the charity, the entire hour will be dedicated to the streaming of Game 4.

The Behemoth is hoping to raise at least $1,000 to donate towards Rady Children’s Hospital in the developer’s hometown of San Diego. Players who donate at least $10 will be entered into a raffle to win a mystery plushy. Those wishing to donate can do so here.

Extra Life is a charity 24-hour gaming event founded in 2008 in honor of Victoria Enmon, who lost her life to acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This year, for the first time, the charity will support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital of each streamer’s choice.

Xbox One October update is live

Xbox One

Microsoft’s October update for the Xbox One is now available for download. This update focused on optimizing the system for those who bought the Kinect-free version, but it comes with plenty of other fixes and functions.

Snapping apps is a lot easier now. Just double-tap the Xbox button and a small menu pops up. You can pick an app to snap, change focus between the game and the snapped app, or unsnap it. You can also “press X to record that.” To take advantage of the easier snapping, Friends and Messages are snap-able (snappable?) so you don’t have to leave your game while assembling your party.

south_park_pinball

It may sound like a joke, but it’s super cereal: a pack of South Park-themed tables will be coming to Pinball FX2 very soon. South Park Pinball captures the essence of the construction paper cartoon in two new tables centered around our favorite foul-mouthed fourth graders. South Park: Super Sweet Pinball recreates the insanity of the small Colorado town with Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny. This table features many fan-favorite faces and some memorable moments from the show. Butters’ Very Own Pinball Game is all about the boy who could laugh at a storm cloud recreating his best moments, including saving Imaginationland and his exploits as Professor Chaos.

South Park: Super Sweet Pinball is coming to Xbox 360 on October 15 and Xbox One on October 16. The pack will cost $4.99 on either platform. If you want to see both new tables in action, just check out the trailer after the jump, m’kay?

Telltale teases House of Forrester’s involvement in Game of Thrones

Telltale's Game of Thrones Ironwood Sigil

This story contains some spoilers for the end of the fourth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones as well as for parts of the book A Dance with Dragons.

When Telltale first announced that it was working with the Game of Thrones property, gamers began wondering what part of the universe the studio would explore. Would it follow the books? The shows? Something entirely different from the world of Westeros?

Telltale has previously said that it would stick to the HBO show rather than George R. R. Martin’s novels, but the studio recently tweeted out a teaser image implying it may be doing a bit of both. As Mashable points out, the image Telltale released contains a quote from Martin’s most recent book, A Dance with Dragons.

The quote mentions ironwoods, which are a type of tree indigenous to Northern Westeros, including the haunted forests beyond the Wall. Fans of the show will remember that its latest season ended with Stannis Baratheon, the Lord of Dragonstone, arriving beyond the Wall with an army at his back just in time to put a stop to the Wildlings’ siege of it. This could mean that the game will show some of the events before Stannis’ arrival or delve into those immediately after to lead into the show’s fifth season.

However, as Mashable points out, the ironwood is also the sigil for House Forrester, whose involvement in the game was teased in August. In A Dance with Dragons, House Forrester provides Stannis with scouts to aid in his march to Winterfell, but the noble house has otherwise gone largely unmentioned in both the show and the books.

Telltale has confirmed that Game of Thrones‘ first episode will release this year.
