A Boy And His Blob

WayForward Technologies’ 2009 reimagining of  A Boy and His Blob is coming to the Xbox Live Marketplace and presumably the PlayStation Network in just over two weeks time.

Spotted by eagle eyed readers on the Xbox Live Marketplace this current gen port of the Wii original looks to boast impressive 2D art assets that no doubt benefit from the bump to an HD resolution. The Xbox One version will clock in at about 2.19GB if the Xbox Live Marketplace is correct.

The game is a 2D platformer where the player, taking the role of the titular boy, must utilize his friendly blobs shapeshifting powers to solve puzzles.

Here is the official description from Xbox Live:

A Boy and His Blob makes its triumphant return! As the boy, you feed Blob jelly beans and watch him transform into cool and useful objects to solve puzzles and escape danger. With its robust and emotionally driven story, challenging puzzles, and visually impressive art style, A Boy and His Blob marks the re-release of this 2009 cult-classic!

We will have more on A Boy and His Blob as soon as it is officially confirmed. The original 2009 version appeared exclusively on Nintendo Wii.


Cooking Mama 5 Impressions

Posted on September 9, 2014 by Jason Nason

The Cooking Mama series has been around on the Nintendo DS and 3DS for a few years now, but I haven’t really tried the game before now. I tried a demo of one a few years ago but that’s about it. So I’ve taken to downloading the demo for the latest game in the series, Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appétit!, to see what’s cooking.

So first off this game has the cute factor cranked up. The game has kid appeal for sure, with bright colours, peppy music and a cute main character … Mama. When you complete the tasks you will be greeted with encouragement, even if you do mess up a bit.

Double Dragon Neon | Review

Posted on November 5, 2012 by Jason Fayta

Version tested:  PlayStation 3

Double Dragon has one of my favorite openings in games:  A babe stands alone in a street and a gang approaches her; a dude steps forward from the gang and he punches the babe straight in the gut. He then hoists her over his shoulder, turns, and walks off with the gang. The garage door of the residence in the background opens, and 1P emerges. He has a Camero by his side, but ignores it. He’s taking this to the streets. Everyone on the street. You’re Billy Lee, and some dudes just took your girl, and you’re going to beat the shit out of everyone that gets in your way until you get her back. It’s this single mindedness and lack of exposition that makes the opening so damn great. It doesn’t matter why they took her–they just took her! And so starts Double Dragon.Read More
