McPixel explodes onto iOS, $1.99 Today Only

Posted on August 27, 2012 by Jeff Wade

The World Ends With You is not the only port of a cult game with countdowns that hit iPhones today. Also available on Android, the port of the PC oddity McPixel contains dozens of absurd scenarios in short fits of lunacy inspired by Saturday Night Live’s McGrubber skits and Nintendo’s Wario Ware games.

In any given moment you’ll defuse bombs in ways ranging from making copies to creating a makeshift Batsignal, with all solutions fitting with the most hilarious of adventure game logic. And you only have 20 seconds to figure it out.

Fitting with the game’s requirement for rapid fire decision making, the game is on sale for $1.99 today only. The solution should be obvious.


15 Minute Gameplay Video Of Lost Planet 3

Lost Planet 3 is looking even better than its’ predecessor and I personally can’t wait for more information to trickle out. With that being said, CVG got a look at Lost Planet 3 earlier this month and had the chance to grab a 15 minute gameplay video!

Lost Planet 3 takes place before the first two games and Capcom has promised a story-driven approach as the first Lost Planet did. Spark Unlimited is in charge of the development for Lost Planet 3, which is a continuing trend of seeking Western developers to make the games instead of developing them internally.

Lost Planet 3 is has no set date, but is expected to release in 2013 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.

“At this time we can’t confirm Nintendo’s dates and we don’t know exactly what was heard, but we simply do not know that this point. We are launching accessories, but the date for the accessories doesn’t mean a confirmation on the hardware. If you seek confirmation on the date that is something that is going to need to go specifically though Nintendo, but we can’t confirm or deny dates on any of their hardware.”
