Deadlight trailer shows us gameplay to save ourselves

Deadlight‘s gameplay is a combination of 2D platforming with some action elements and survival horror elements. But in this new trailer, we see all the environments a post-apocalyptic 1986 Vancouver has to offer and how much of it is in decaying ruins with zombified creatures. It’s less about taking zombies head-on but evading and setting traps when necessary, where guns act more like tools rather than weapons. Tequila Works will be showing the game off at PAX East this weekend and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.


Rock Band Blitz won’t play disc-based Rock Band 3 tracks

Rock Band Blitz

Fans hoping to import disc-based tracks from Rock Band 3 to the newly-announced XBLA title Rock Band Blitz are out of luck. According to a Joystiq report, Harmonix confirms it won’t be possible since they aren’t stored on the hard drive. Tracks able to be stored to the hard drive, however, will be compatible with the game.

The game, announced Tuesday, will hit the Marketplace this summer and serves as a bit of a resurgence of the once-ubiquitous music franchise (previously an annual release, the last entry came out in 2010). The game will feature 25 tracks, including Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl” and “Always” by Blink-182. Gameplay will be similar to Rock Band Unplugged or Amplitude; the player uses a controller to rock out, as opposed to plastic instruments. They’ll also control the entire band at once, switching between instruments as the song progresses. Rock Band Blitz is developed by Harmonix and releases this summer.


See the new Hulk table for Pinball FX 2 in action

If you’re a fan of comic books or pinball, then you probably already know about the huge success that Zen Studios and Marvel have had together. In their upcoming DLC table pack, Avengers Chronicles, we finally get a table dedicated to the Jade Giant himself, Hulk. Although this isn’t just any iteration of Hulk, this is World War Hulk. In this story line Hulk has just gotten back to earth from an involuntary trip to space and he is mad and out for revenge. Stopping at nothing, Hulk took on heroes and villains alike to achieve the justice he felt was owed. In this new trailer we get a chance to see that Zen Studios will be holding nothing back, as they deliver this hectic adventure as only their digital pinball table can. And just in case that wasn’t enough, you can always take a closer look at the new World War Hulk table via screenshots we have just after the break.

XBLA version of Minecraft to receive DLC

The XBLA port of Minecraft will be getting DLC and updates post-release, says Roger Carpenter, lead Xbox Live Arcade producer at Microsoft Studios Europe. Responding to an XBLA Fans question over Twitter, Carpenter confirmed that there are plans to make additional content available Minecraft after the game’s May 9 release.

“Minecraft XBLA will be getting updates,” Rogers tweeted. “We have DLC plans too but one thing at a time eh.” The message from Rogers is inline with what he himself revealed last month in an interview about future patches that are already being planned in order to bring the console version more in line with the PC original. His tweet, however, contains the first confirmation that actual DLC, not just updates, will be released for the world-building game.

RedLynx walks us through Dark City Run in Trials Evolution

The anticipation for Trials Evolution is insane but it’s only two more weeks until you get your hands on it. Leading up to the weeks, RedLynx has been kind enough to send a video our way of one of the Extreme levels, Dark City Run. The level designer on Dark City Run walks us through the level and what kind of changes have been put in place since Trials HD. The dark, gritty style is said to resemble Sin City with shades of red around a black and white landscape.

One other cool tidbit is RedLynx will be posting Editor Tutorial Videos today, with up to 30 planned videos. We’ll be posting them as well up until launch so be sure to mark April 18 off your calendar, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
