Jet Set Radio’s tag-heavy new trailer

After the recent announcement of Jet Set Radio finally coming to XBLA, we’re given our very first gameplay trailer. It might look familiar to some of you Dreamcast lovers out there but to refresh you or any new fan’s memory, the game is all about living in Tokyo-to as a rollerblade gang member of the GG. Tagging and creating art through spray painting while making your mark in the city. But a police force is out to stop any gang-related tagging and vandalism so best to avoid or inflict danger. You’ll notice in the trailer, the cleaned-up visuals look smoother and there’ll be up to 18 new tags submitted by fans from an upcoming contest. Be sure to strap your skates on this summer.

Witness a cooperative assault in new split-screen Awesomenauts trailer

Ronimo Games has released a new trailer for their upcoming MOBA title Awesomenauts, which showcases the game’s split-screen cooperative mode. In Awesomenauts, you’ll be able to team up with two friends to take the fight to opposing forces both online over Xbox Live, and offline via local split-screen. This particular trailer shows off the characters Clunk, Froggy G, Leon and Lonestar combining their might. To be taken to each individual character’s spotlight trailer, simply click their name above.

For those unfamiliar, Awesomenauts is a side-scrolling MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) game that will mark one of the first entries by the genre into the console scene. Made popular by games such as DOTA and League of Legends, MOBA games allow you to select a character with which you’ll fight alongside teammates and NPC allies to make your way into enemy territory and capture objectives. Along the way you’ll level up and gain new abilities by defeating enemies, with each round you play representing a completely new and unpredictable set of of challenges that require you to be able to think, act, and strategize on the fly. Awesomenauts is currently without a release date, but the game is due to release this year.


This Counter-Strike: Global Offensive montage is all about guns

IGN has put together a montage of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gameplay footage taken from the on-going beta on PC. The clip focuses on the wide array of weapons in the game, which fans know play an integral role in creating the Counter-Strike experience. The recoil on the AK-47 has to be just right. The deep thud of the Desert Eagle being fired has to make you to “feel” the .50 caliber’s power. Regardless of your history with the franchise, fans and gun nuts alike should get plenty of enjoyment from the video which shows just how satisfying it will be to pull the trigger on Global Offensive‘s weapons. While we must remind you that the footage is taken from the PC version of the game and plenty of development time remains, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is currently scheduled to make its explosive debut on Xbox Live Arcade this spring.


Dungeon Defenders DLC details emerge from their magic lamp

The Quest for the Lost Eternia Shards Part 2 DLC and latest title update for Dungeon Defenders is inching closer to a console release. Although Microsoft has yet to put their stamp on the update and DLC, Sony has given the PSN version the green light. Developer Trendy Entertainment previously submitted the content to MS and Sony for their approval in late February.

Players will be spending time in the desert town of Moraggo whenever the content does end up going live on XBLA. There they will encounter the Djinn, who have the ability to buff other enemies and muster their own fire, lightning and poison attacks. Djinn will fight alongside players for a limited time once they are bested during the new challenge mission.

Take a peek at the Hulk table in Pinball FX 2

What was once to be rumored but now looks all but confirmed that we’ll be getting green and incredible soon. During Game Informer‘s April cover reveal, we were treated to a brand new shot from the upcoming Hulk table in Pinball FX 2. It’s got a lot, perhaps a bit weird, green hue to everything mixing with the yellow. No release date confirmed or if it’ll come in a set or on its own, but we’ll keep the ball rolling on any more news as it develops. Shout out to @KnoxSe7eN for the tip!


The Splatters arriving April 11

A new marketplace listing gives The Splatters a release date of April 11, 2012. Unlike other recent listings, it has been confirmed by Niv Fisher of developer SpikySnail that this date is correct. Yay!

The Splatters follows a group of acrobatics whose goal is to kill themselves in the most spectacular way possible. Players will earn points by flinging their blobs off ramps, pulling off spectacular stunts, and ultimately smashing them into obstacles. The great physics engine makes the gameplay fluid and the splatters very messy. Getting a high score may be hard, but the hardest part will be waiting until April 11 to play this awesome game.
