Friendships End With Super Mario 3D World – Two Friends, One Backlog

You all asked for stupid Let’s Plays, so I’ll give you stupid Let’s Plays! I called up Andy and we decided that we needed to make the title of this new show as inappropriate as possible. Why not play games we’ve never played and try to stop the overflowing backlog between us both? Two Friends, One Backlog was born. Enjoy the first and only episode, as we’re no longer friends after this. Super Mario 3D World is war.

 

Indie Games, Mainstream? Golden Girls vs Capcom? – Twinfinite Discusses

We’re back with another Twinfinite Discusses! While Alex and Austin still haven’t returned from their honeymoon, Muaz joined Andy and I once again to talk about the topics and questions you sent us in. Here’s an episode on whether indie games will ever truly be mainstream, what kind of gaming hybrid filled with different game mechanics we’d love to make together, and which TV shows would make fantastic video games.

Bound by Flame from Spiders Studio is set for release on May 9th for the PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. As we anxiously await this fantasy RPG with character choice, let’s let these new screenshots satiate our excitement. My excitement. Look, I’m really looking forward to Bound by Flame.

With 36 tracks and three different game modes (Platforming, Time Trial, and Collector), Jet Car Stunts promises to be a wacky new racer from bitComposer Games and Grip Games. From the looks of the trailer, you’re going to be spending a lot of time flying your car through the air rather than driving it. Check this downloadable title out for yourself May on Steam for $9.99. PSN and XBLA will follow “shortly after.” Meanwhile, next-gen releases are also planned.

 

Life Goes On Gets a Launch Trailer, Proves Life Really Goes On

Life Goes On released today on Steam and to celebrate, we got a nice little launch trailer showcasing the many deaths. When I first heard that Life Goes On featured a lot of dying, I thought it was due to difficulty, a la Super  Meat Boy. However, I see now that the deaths are caused by the necessity of it all. You need to die in some levels in order to use that corpse to get through an obstacle. Genius. You [...]

 

Concursion Has a Playable Demo You Can Check Out

Puuba has released a playable demo that anyone can check out for their upcoming game Concursion. What’s most interesting about it is that they seemed to have mashed up a variety of genres all into one game. Just by viewing the above trailer, you can spot at least three (platformer, rpg, and shoot ‘em up) within one minute, though the developers have said there’s actually five genres. I also love the idea that you can use what appears to be [...]

Hey there! We’re back with another Twinfinite Discusses with special guest Muaz! He’s filling in for Austin and Alex these couple of weeks as they ran off to get married and go on their honeymoon, but we weren’t invited. I know, it’s a very confusing story that almost sounds like a lie (they’ll be back in a couple of weeks). This Twinfinite Discusses, we tackled the questions you sent in. Such topics as which games we’re looking forward to this [...]
