Double Fine Gets Trenched

While hosting the Game Developer’s Choice Awards tonight Tim Schafer, Double Fine’s fearless leader, debuted the first trailer for the studio’s third downloadable title known simply as Trenched. From what’s been gathered by watching the trailer, it looks to be a mech combat game in the vein of Chromehounds where a human faction called the Mobile Trench Brigade defends itself from the Monovision, mutated television monstrosities. There looks to be an ample amount of customization for the mechs, but not much else is known at the moment.

Sadly we do not have a copy of the trailer yet, but when it becomes available it will be inserted here in this post. Until then, head to the Trenched website where you can watch it on infinite loop. If you’re curious as to what the game looks like, check out the gallery below.

Secret XBLA Sales: Toy Soldiers, Star Trek: D-A-C and more

There are a few sales on XBLA games right now that are barely being promoted by Microsoft. So we here at XBLAFans decided to point them out in case you had been waiting for a sale from these titles but didn’t notice them buried deep within the dashboard.

First there is Toy Soldiers being sold for 800MS points ($10) which is 33% off the original price of 1200MS points ($15). This sale can be found in the “Spotlight” tab of the dashboard after scrolling over to the right 4-5 times. Toy Soldiers is a wonderful game and a great value for only 800MS points.

Next would be the “Movie Games Madness” sale. You can locate this sale by making your way to the “Game Marketplace” section of the dashboard and scrolling to the right 5-6 times. In this sale you will be able to find 50% savings on both TMNT: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled and Star Trek: D-A-C.  Both games are usually 800MS points ($10), but are currently listed at 400MS points ($5). If you pick up Star Trek: D-A-C, remember that you can also pick up the Deluxe Edition DLC for free.

Nobody really knows when or if any of these sales will be ending. These could be short promotions. So if you have been waiting on a sale for any of these titles, my suggestion would be to act quickly. You never know when or if these games will be on sale again.


Two more sales of note: Prince of Persia Classic for 400MSP and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game for 200MSP. Thanks to commenter BigMack for pointing those out!
