Kim Swift narrates eight-minute Quantum Conundrum demo from CES

Kim Swift of Airtight Games sat down with GameTrailers during CES to show off an 8-minute demo of Quantum Conundrum and we’ve got the video to prove it. During the demo we get to see exactly how this new physics based puzzle game works, and inevitably compare and contrast the game with Kim’s previous creation, Portal. Take a peak at the 8-minutes of dimension switching gameplay for yourself by watching the clip above. Quantum Conundrum is scheduled to be published by Square Enix sometime in the first quarter of this year.

Might and Delight interview on upcoming platform puzzler, Pid


We here at XBLA Fans love ourselves a good platformer. There’s dozens of them out there, and we’ve played them all and loved them… well most of them. Games like Limbo and Braid often stand out as those sort of out-there platformers with a lot of quirk to them. Looks like we’ll be able to add Pid to the list of interesting, strange and unique platformers soon to grace the digital download marketplace. However, as Pid does leave one filled with wonder and intrigue, we took it upon ourselves to seek out Pid‘s developers, Might and Delight to acquire further elucidation on the cosmic entity that is Pid.

Visit Mars in this 45 minute look at Iron Brigade’s Rise of the Martian Bear DLC

The folks over at Giant Bomb were lucky enough to sit down with Brad Muir of Double Fine Productions and get their hands on the new Iron Brigade DLC, Rise of the Martian Bear. Lucky for us, they were kind enough to record their time with the game, and share it with the world. While there’s a plethora of sights to behold in the footage (which can be viewed above), expect to see Mars, several new enemy types, jaw dropping new weapons , new outfits (including Eddie Riggs of Brutal Legend fame) as well as dual-wielding salutes! Now you can annoy your friends on the deck of the U.S.S. McKinley with both hands!

While Double Fine and Microsoft officially remain mum on a release date and pricing for Rise of the Martian Bear, rumor has it that development on the DLC has been completed. We’re hoping that means it’s been submitted to Microsoft for certification and will be smashing its way onto the Xbox Live Marketplace very soon. On the subject of pricing however, Muir infers that Double Fine is aiming for a 400 Microsoft Point price tag which should definitely excite fans. Don your space suit and stay tuned for more coverage of Rise of the Martian Bear right here at XBLAFans.

Seven minutes of stealth in new Warp video

IGN have published a new video showcasing the first of the House Party releases, Warp. In the 7 minute video, developers TrapDoor show off the puzzle-based stealth in action. We also find out that it’s not as cute as the previous screenshots would have us believe. Check out the gore as protagonist Zero explodes scientists from the inside out! Warp is due for release on XBLA as part of the House Party promotion on February 15 for 800 MSP.


Developer website lists Fireburst as TBA

According to Zoo Games’ official website, Fireburst, which was initially supposed to be released in summer of 2011, is now TBA. The initial announcement also stated the game would be available on PC, PSN, and XBLA yet on the developer website the game is currently listed only for PSN. The company’s Facebook page still says the game will be available for all three platforms although the page has not been updated since its initial “Summer 2011” launch date and the official Fireburst website still lists all platforms. XBLA Fans contacted the developer when putting together our anticipated 2012 game release master list to confirm its release but received no response.


Improving on greatness: things to better Xbox LIVE


Maybe we’re a little biased here, but we think Xbox LIVE is a great service. Sure, other services on other consoles and PC are offered for free, but so much is offered to LIVE members that it seems a small thing to pony up the equivalent of $5 USD each month for it. We get exclusive games, we often get earlier access to digital titles, and we have a plethora of other media outlets like Netflix, Hulu, UFC and YouTube. There’s always room for improvement, however, and there are a few things that for reasons that remain a mystery have not been touched on. We submit these as an official fan letter to Microsoft.

XBLA Wednesday: January 25

We got two games that kind of rhyme this week with Quarrel and Puddle both wanting your points. First up, Quarrel has been described as “Risk meets Scrabble” where you must take over territories by spelling out words with the letters given. Check out the launch trailer here, the game will set you back 400 MSP. Last game on our list is Puddle, a physics-based platformer where you play a little puddle of rocket fuel and radioactive gas. You’ll have to maneuver through tight corners and objects that’ll cause the puddle to fizz, the game will set you back 800 MSP. Whether it’s spelling out words to take over land or dripping through cracks as a puddle, XBLA Wednesday has got you covered.


Quarrel launch trailer shows off quirky gameplay

Quarrel, a game about spelling things and earning points, has made the jump from iOS to Xbox Live Arcade this week complete with its own fancy trailer and apparently different scoring system. Scrabble rules says “QUARREL” is 16 points, but clearly that won’t stop Quarrel from being worth 26 points according to the developer’s screenshots, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Clearly Quarrel is out to do things that many people have only seen in one light differently, and that’s what XBLA is all about. Check out this familiar and yet strange take on word gaming as it’s out now for 400MSP. Apparently it’s Scrabble meets Risk. So. That’s awesome.

Stay tuned to XBLAFans for a review of Quarrel. Supercalifragelisticexpialidocious.
