Dust: An Elysian Tail sells over a million units

For years, developer Dean Dorill poured his heart and soul into the indie action/platforming game Dust: An Elysian Tail, finally releasing in 2012 with a release on Xbox Live Arcade and Steam. Aside from the soundtrack, Dodrill handled every aspect of Dust's development. Two years later, it appears that the effort has paid off.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode Two coming in February

It's been over three months since Telltale Games shipped the first episode of its five-part The Wolf Among Us series. What gives?

"This is one of those occasions where several things conspired against us (not to mention the additional delays due to the holidays)," Telltale said in a new update. "I won't dive into the details, but it's been an unusual and specific set of circumstances."

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD comparison screenshots

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD comparison screenshots

In some ways, Assassin's Creed 4 felt long one giant advertisement for Liberation, the franchise's Vita spin-off game. Lo and behold, just months after Black Flag, an HD port of Liberation will be available on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. In fact, it's coming out next week for only $20.

Of course, this is more than a mere HD port. The graphics have gotten a rather significant facelift, with brand new character models replacing the Vita's originals. A batch of screenshots from Ubisoft highlight the difference, as it attempts to prove that Liberation HD is a real console game--not just a port of a handheld spin-off.

Contrast review: light on gameplay

Contrast review: light on gameplay

Compulsion Games' Contrast has nearly everything an indie game needs to be a success: beautiful art, an inspired setting, and an intriguing gameplay mechanic that has you solving puzzles with shadows. Unfortunately, it's put together so carelessly, it falls short of its incredible potential.

You control Dawn, a silent hero that looks over Didi, a girl who must come to terms with her broken home. Her mother works at the local cabaret, and her father has abandoned them to pursue riches--with the mob on his tail.

PSA: Soulcalibur 2 HD Online is out now

Now that we got reviews of those new consoles out of the way, it's time to start talking about old games. Specifically, an 11 year old game. Soulcalibur 2 HD Online is now available on PS3 and Xbox 360 for $19.99.

A Wii U release is "not impossible," Namco Bandai has said, but "it depends on the demand for it." And it seems unlikely we'll see a PS4 or Xbox One release, too.

LocoCycle review: crazy bad

LocoCycle review: crazy bad

Ever watch a movie that's so bad... it's good? Films like Fast Five and Crank 2 don't advance the art of cinema, but they revel in their over-the-top camp nature to provide exciting, brainless entertainment. Twisted Pixel attempts the same with LocoCycle, but ends up with a game that's so bad... it's bad.
