Two new mind-bending screens from Quantum Conundrum

News has been slow on Kim Swift’s upcoming Quantum Conundrum for XBLA but we got a whopping two new screens from the game which is way more than one! From what we see, we’ll be dodging our fair share of lasers and manipulating gravity to some respect. Square Enix and Airtight Games seem to be only teasing us slowly with each short reveal. One thing’s for sure, we’re excited to see more of this game next year so hit the break to catch these screenshots in action.

Double Fine aiming for less crazy schedule in 2012

Between October 20, 2010 and October 11, 2011, Double Fine released the XBLA games Costume Quest, Stacking, and Iron Brigade, as well as the retail game Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster. According to an interview with Eurogamer, you shouldn’t expect the same speedy output from them in 2012. The reason so many games were released in such a short period of time was due to the period of time at the end of the development of Brutal Legend where Double Fine came up with the ideas for and began development on a number of games, including most of the ones mentioned previously. According to Eurogamer, Double Fine “will likely focus on one or two small to medium-sized releases a year”. Even though this isn’t quite up to the blistering pace that they’ve put up for the last couple of years, this still means there will be a decent number of Double Fine games to look forward to each year, including an upcoming game from Tim Schafer’s Monkey Island cohort Ron Gilbert. Read the Eurogamer interview for more plenty more information on Double Fine, sequels, and the reason behind Trenched‘s name change.


Renegade Ops getting frosty with new Coldstrike campaign and Vehicle DLC

We posted a rumor that Renegade Ops would be seeing some DLC in the near future and it looks like that turned out to be true. Sega announced today that we’ll be seeing two new DLC packs on December 21 with one for campaign and new vehicles for the other one. In the new Coldstrike campaign, you’ll be facing off against a new villain with three new levels and new enemy types to destroy. It’ll set you back 400 MSP on its release. The new Vehicle Pack DLC will add two new heroes with Crystal using a large-force field and custom armor while Blazemo has an off-road terrain vehicle that’s great against multiple terrains so nothing stands in your path to destruction. It’ll set you back 240 MSP for both heroes and catch some new screenshots after the break of the arctic explosions.

Fight Till Dawn in this new developer diary for Alan Wake’s American Nightmare

Just when you think all of the news has emerged from the darkness about Alan Wake’s American Nightmare but then Remedy gives us more and who are we to say no to that? IGN just put up a developer diary where CEO Matias Myllyrinne talks us through a playthrough of the new “Fight Till Dawn” Arcade mode. They show off some new weapons such as the devastating nail gun and new enemies like the Splitter that splits into multiple enemies when you shine light on them. But you can luckily catch a breather with the safe havens and collect manuscripts in order to unlock new weapons throughout the Arcade mode. You’ll want to keep a flashlight handy when you’re fighting until dawn with this game sometime in mid Q1 2012.


Quarrel coming in 2012 with online multiplayer

To tell you the truth, we haven’t heard anything about Quarrel until today when @lifelower tipped us a screenshot with the game description. Quarrel is an iPhone/iPad game coming to XBLA where Game Informer describes it as “Scrabble meets Risk“, which sounds like a curious combination.

You play on a map that’s evenly divided by sections and must overtake similar to Risk however, victory is determined by a word battle with the best scoring word as the winner. They can only use the number of soldiers to represent how many letters they have so you’ll have to utilize your cohorts wisely to get the best scoring words. While it was announced for Fall of this year, the developer Denki announced on their blog that the XBLA version of Quarrel will hit sometime next year with online multiplayer for up to 4 friends. We’ll keep the word out for any new information when Quarrel hits sometime next year.
