Yesterday we got a small peek at new Xbox Live Arcade exclusive game Deadlight. Not much is known about the game, accept you are a making your way across the post apocalyptic United States. Now we get to see another small peek via the teaser trailer below. I know it doesn’t compare to the Resident Evil 6 excitement, but it’s still exciting non the less. Check it out!
New game developers Tequila Works have been hard at work on their 1st game, Deadlight. Just announced Tequila Works has partnered with Microsoft Studios as they will be publishing the game exclusively for the Xbox Live Arcade this summer (hopefully). Tequila Works was started in 2009 by Rubio Munárriz and Luz Sancho Rodríguez, 2 veterans of the gaming industry. Working on such games as: Commandos and Motorstorm series, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Diablo III, Heavy Rain, and Overlord II. I know Adam is thinking “Why would they leave Diablo III?!”
“In an apocalyptic world where there is no reason to exist, a man crosses the American west coast. Surviving is much more than a daily routine in this original cinematic puzzle platformer.” From the screens you can check out past the break, the game definitely looks creepy. I’m hoping it will fall into the survival horror category, but it looks like a lot of games that have come out recently for XBLA, 2D sidecroller esq. Though it’s still too early to know for sure.

Well, Amy the downloadable survival horror game we’ve all been waiting for is out. If given the opportunity I always get a demo first, JUST to be safe. I feel that in the case of sad little speechless Amy try before you buy was the right choice. The game definitely feels like an old school survival horror game, the controls are a bit wonky, and it’s a bit slow moving.
The combat reeks of early Silent Hill, I definitely felt threatened with every enemy I fought. Have we evolved to the point where games like this that used to grip up and leave us on the edge of our seat just don’t cut it anymore? Has anyone else attempted the demo? Anyone bought the game? Can someone convince me to shed the 10 bucks for it? READ MORE
I’m still not sure how I feel about the dramatic change in direction that I Am Alive has taken. I was definitely more interested in the original plot, and the games graphics definitely looked better. It also helped that the game took place in Chicago, and now I’m not quite so sure. The video below gives you an interview with one of the games creators, as he explains some key elements to the game.
No exact release date yet, but expect it to be hitting the Xbox Live Arcade first and Playstation Network a bit later. READ MORE
Screens past the break. READ MORE
Unfortunately for the die hard Bloodrayne fans, Betrayal is not going to be a full 60 dollar release. Could it be due the the movie and it’s eternal horribleness? No one will ever REALLY know. But, the games release on Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network might be just what the franchise needs.
New screens past the break, and Bloodrayne: Betrayal will be out August 31st for the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. READ MORE
Remember Burn Zombie Burn!? It was one of the 1st per say, of all these zombie games that have come pouring out of the wood work, or graves. Well, developer doublesix is back with a new zombie game, All Zombies Must Die! While not a direct sequel to Burn Zombie Burn! they are however calling it a spiritual successor.
All Zombies Must Die! will have RPG elements to the game, such as character leveling, quests, many different weapons and weapon combos. A Gamer, a Girl, a Mad Scientist and an Alien are all that stands between 6 billion zombies and the world’s supply of delicious, supple brains. It looks as if there will be 4 player co-op (my fave), for some team zombie killing action. Check out some screens past the break. The game will be coming out sometime in the 4th quarter of this year on the PC, Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. READ MORE

Out today in the Xbox Live Games on Demand section of the Xbox Live Marketplace, is Deadly Premonition. For those who have been reluctant to buy the game, or maybe just couldn’t find it, this game is a must have. Well, it’s at least a must try.
I don’t even know where to begin. Tonight as I was downstairs working on some news my friend Kiel came down and told me to come upstairs immediately. He said he just played a game I had to play right away. Fatal Seduction is it’s name. Never heard of it? Same here. Well, it just came out in the Xbox Live Arcade Indie Games section from Silver Dollar Games. They specifically make tons of indie games.
Head past the break to read my short yet sweet review of one of the most fucked up incredible games I’ve ever played, about “The World’s Youngest Serial Killer”. READ MORE
With all this TALK about Deadly Premonition 2, I thought I’d give all you horror fans a Deadly Premonition update. No, unfortunately there is no DLC (Which is what I was hoping for).
The real news here is that Deadly Premonition is coming to Xbox Live Arcade. What does that mean for you? Well, you don’t have to get your lazy asses off the couch to go buy the hard copy. It will be released on July 5 in the Games On Demand section of XBLA. So once you’re done gorging yourselves on meat products and ooo’ing and ahh’ing at the fireworks, you can pass out in your own filth, wake up, download that bitch and start the revolution. READ MORE
As of right now we haven’t really seen much for Amy. Past the break you can check out 1 short minute of the game, as Lana starts to become more infected as she is separated and cannot find Amy. Below, check out some awesome things the developers are doing graphically with the game.
Past the break you can also check out 3 new screen shots. Amy is going to be out this September, (unfortunately later than expected), on the PC, PSN, and XBLA.
No Time To Explain immediately caught my eye when I saw it’s 1st trailer. It should be out on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this summer. I’m pretty damn excited about it, cause it looks like crazy old school Nintendo platforming fun. Check out some actual game play below.
My laptop is on the fucking fritz right now, so I’m trying to at least post something. And there isn’t much that I can say about this game that I haven’t said before. PewPewPewPewPewPewPewPewPew is an Xbox Live Arcade Indie game, which means no matter what, it costs 1 dollar. Or 80 Microsoft Laser Blasts. In PewPewPewPewPewPewPewPewPew 2 people use 2 microphones to control 1 shape shooting space man. It’s now out. That is all.
The game No Time To Explain already holds a special place in my heart. Why? Watch the video below.
No Time To Explain is a side scrolling platformer that includes, you, you from the future, you from the past, huge crabs, spaceships, sharks, it just looks like way too much fun. Look out for the game this summer, unannounced but most likely on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Look closely at the beginning of the video, i think he is dancing and playing on the Kinect. READ MORE
Update: Just to clarify, this was an April Fool’s Day joke (As if you didn’t know this already).
Capcom is smart. Maybe too smart. There has been a TON of Resident Evil news, and games being announced lately. The masses have been happy and mad about the announcements, but that seems to be the way with anything these days. Thanks to the internet, everyone has a “voice”. What does that mean? Everyone now has a pair of big ol’ hairy balls connected to their fingers so they can say whatever they want.
But I’m getting off subject. It would seem since the announcement of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City has gotten such a great response, that Capcom decided that Resident Evil Outbreak, and Outbreak File 2 have been announced for the Playstation Network and the Xbox Live Arcade. Not just ported over, but just like RE4 and Code V, remastered in HD. I can’t express my excitement just through words. I’ve been wanting this for YEARS. I asked for it so many times on the Dead Pixels Podcast, finally! READ MORE
Yes we’ve all heard of Infamous, but that’s old news. This month it’s all about Inflamous. What is it you ask? Well, an Xbox Live Indie Game to start. But more importantly, it’s a game where you run around your office and light your co-workers on fire. Sounds like fun, and for only 1 dollar, and 50 levels, you can’t miss.
The game is out now exclusively for the Xbox 360, and can be found in the indie games section. Screens past the break. READ MORE
Announced by the sexy and illustrious Adam Dodd less than 2 short days ago, Capcom will be remaking 2 excellent Resident Evil games. Resident Evil Code Veronica X & Resident Evil 4 will be remade in semi glorious HD for the Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade.
Sometime this fall they will be released for download, and past the break you can see 5 SD to HD comparison screen shots. The pics show off exactly what you will be seeing in the upcoming releases as opposed to what you have seen in the past. READ MORE
Now that the picture below grabbed your attention, I can get down to the nerdy end of things. The gaming industry in 2010 brought in somewhere over 33 billion dollars, and that is with sales of around 3.2 billion games. Those are amazing numbers to see in such a terrible economy. It goes to show us gamers the industry is not going to slow down for anyone ever.
If you head past the break you can see the 33 Billion broken down by console, dlc, android, etc. READ MORE

Ok, so they aren’t all green, that would look weird. However, as you can see from the screens that are past the break, it looks like in the classic Ghostbusters sense you will be fighting a wicked train or subway car. Just the way I like it. Fighting possessed inanimate objects.
Ghostbusters Sanctum of Slime is a PC, Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade joint that is looking at a March 23rd release date. READ MORE
