Dedicated to all of you who can't afford a Xbox One.
One of the marquee titles from this year's Summer of Arcade promotion on XBLA was Deadlight. Now, the game is coming to PC.
Sit back, relax and take in the first 20 minutes of Dust: An Elysian Tail. Watch the full video at GodisaGeek.com.
Dodrill obviously invested his well-deserved prize money wisely, and has used his considerable talents to craft a killer debut.
Set in a zombie-laden (though they are referred to as "Shadows" in Deadlight) world, you play the role of a man separated from his friends and family. As you search them out, you'll encounter the usual twists and turns you'd expect from a story driven title.
The majestic look of Deadlight and terrific comic book panel style are something that make this offering a little bit different. With solid gameplay and enjoyable challenges, Tequila Works has done a really good job in creating a decent puzzle platformer.
Wreckateer is clearly aimed at kids, yet it's slow, has some over-complicated shots, an unfunny script and a bland appearance. All of these factors would make any child lose interest after ten minutes. This is not Once Upon A Monster or Happy Action Theater, which are both excellent uses of the Kinect for the younger audience. Sure, the controls basically work, but that doesn't translate into greatness, whatever your age.
The originals are classics of their time and for a few brief moments, you'll smile as you grind across the chopper's propeller in The Hangar stage. However, sometimes you're better off to leave well enough alone.
