Wow. At some point this month, we hit 1,000,000 pageviews on the site. But who’s counting? Us. We are. We want to thank you all for making this momentous occasion possible. There’s no way we could have hit this milestone without each and every one of you wonderful Twinfiknights. We definitely have big plans for the future and we hope we can count on your continued support. Here’s to 1 million more, you beautiful people!
Greetings wonderful Twinfiknights! Like a lot of the staff, my summer vacation has officially started and hot damn am I pumped. No more stressing over finals, papers, or staring at words like “occasion” or “conscientious” at 5 in the morning convinced that they’re spelled wrong. They’re not. I’m going to enjoy using my new-found freedom to go back and tackle my insane backlog and taking a second look at games I had fun with but haven’t touched in a while. One [...]
Super Metroid is one of those Nintendo games that is timeless and is widely considered one of the best games ever. With the lackluster pickings on the Wii U’s virtual console, it even has the distinction of being one of the best games available on the Wii U. In recognition of the 30th anniversary of the original Famicom, Super Metroid is on sale for 30 cents starting today and continuing for 30 days. This is the perfect chance for all [...]
On paper, Payday: The Heist seemed like it would be the perfect opportunity for gamers to get a chance to live the Ocean’s 11 lifestyle and had us master criminal types at the Twinfinite office foaming at the mouth. Unfortunately (or fortunately for real life banks), we make the worst crack team of thieves ever. Even more unfortunate were the confusing controls, extremely long missions, and the bland gameplay that plagued the finished product and left much to be desired. The sequel is slated to fix all [...]
Hi everybody! I hope you all have been enjoying the new Twinfinite site in all its prettiness. I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself as your new Community Manager. What this means exactly, I have no idea but I assume that I’ll be managing the underground fight club and our monthly shark knife hunt… …So I’ve just been told that we DON’T have a fight club and we’re not allowed to have a shark hunt. What’s the [...]
With the recent news of the hire of John Needham as Lionhead Studios’ new head, and the upcoming announcement of the next generation Xbox, this is the perfect opportunity to take a look at the history of the Fable series, one of the few remaining Xbox exclusives. While the games weren’t the revolutionary masterpieces that the bombastic Peter Molyneux kept promising his fans, they all had at least some new features that helped the series stand out.
We here at Twinfinite LOVED XCOM: Enemy Unknown. There was the playthrough of the game with the soldiers named after people on staff and it had a place on many of our GOTY lists. A first person shooter version was announced years ago but shelved by 2K Games after unsuccessful reboots of Shadowrun and Syndicate, until now. The success of XCOM: EU has to figure in their decision to revisit this interpretation of the series. With a third person perspective and a [...]
After Lionhead Studios released Fable: The Journey in October 2012, Peter Molyneux announced that he would be leaving the company he helped found, to work at 22Cans. Since then, the company famous for making one of the few remaining Xbox exclusive franchises has remained quiet about future games and plans for his replacement. That silence ended today when Microsoft announced that John Needham, the former CEO of Cryptic Studios and Gazillion Entertainment, would attempt to fill the ambitious and bombastic Molyneux’s [...]
The anxious wait for a Pikmin 3 release date has finally come to an end. Out of the deluge of news coming from yesterday’s Nintendo Direct conference came the announcement that fans can hurl around their cute little flower people starting August 4th. With the charming world now in HD and the addition of new Pikmin types, such as the rock and flying Pikmin, this third installment in the series seems geared to make a big splash this summer.
Earlier today, developer Deep Silver released the newest Ride To Hell: Retribution trailer and boy oh boy does it look devilishly glorious. There’s fisticuffs, gun fights, more fisticuffs, motorcycle gun fights, even more fisticuffs, grateful damsels, and the most fisticuffs. Did I mention the fist-fighting? There’s a lot of it. The vibe the trailer is giving off is Red Dead Redemption meets the FX TV series, Sons of Anarchy if the had a lot of punching in them. The game releases June 2013 [...]
