MGS5: The Phantom Pain, Mad Max, Disney Infinity Star Wars, more added to PS Store


The Fall gaming season has arrived on the PlayStation Store as Sony added more than a dozen games to their digital storefront yesterday. The biggest name is most definitely Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, (presumably) the final game in the franchise developed by Hideo Kojima. Kojima and Konami still have yet to make an official announcement concerning his future with the company, but it looks like Kojima got to go out on his terms with another epic military stealth shooter for the PS3 and PS4.

Speaking of the word “epic,” also available this week is Mad Max (PS4), Avalanche’s open world adaptation of George Miller’s post-apocalyptic hero. Players will be able to find gas, explore the Wastleand, and stare down War Boys as they attempt to rebuild Max’s beloved car. It’ll probably be less exciting than Mad Max: Fury Road, but nearly everything else you can think of is less exciting than Mad Max: Fury Road.

But for the kids out there, the idea of adding Star Wars characters to the Disney Infinity formula surely ranks pretty high on the “epic” scale. So I guess it’s a good thing that Disney Interactive released Disney Infinity: Star Wars for the PS3 and PS4 earlier this week. Obviously, Disney Infinity figures are sold separately.

Finally this week, a number of smaller releases are now available to download including Armello, a tabletop-style game for the PS4; Super Time Force Ultra, a side-scrolling shooter that lets players rewind time for the PS4 and Vita (Cross-Buy); and Xeodrifter, a metroidvania from Renegade Kid for the PS4 and Vita (also a Cross-Buy title).

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And, as always, a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

XBL Store Today: Super Time Force, Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 3, Bullet Witch


After multiple delays, Capybara’s Super Time Force, AKA “Contra with time travel,” is now available for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

On the Xbox 360 Game Store, the side-scroller will be joined by Bullet Witch, an “action girl” game that was originally released in 2007. Needless to say, it’s legacy has been eclipsed by a similarly-styled game released three years later.

And speaking of the number three, this week also marks the release of The Walking Dead Season 2: In Harm’s Way, the third episode in Telltale’s episodic adventure series. What hard decisions will Clementine have to make this time?

More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)

Capy Games shows off “Sloooowww Motion” gameplay in Super Time Force launch trailer

Super Time Force will be available to download from the Xbox Live Game Store for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One this Wednesday, May 14. To celebrate, Capybara Games has released a launch trailer that shows off the game’s “Sloooowww Motion” gameplay.

Dan Vader, the Co-Designer, Level Designer, and Writer of Super Time Force, talked about the game’s unique design with the Xbox Wire: “We’ve never done anything this… ‘splodey before, but in some ways, it feels like the most ‘Capy’ game to me. It certainly bears our hallmarks: familiar mechanics taken in a far-out direction, beautifully stylized art, jokes, and barf.”

Super Time Force is a side-scrolling shooter that the developers at Capy like to refer to as “A Contra game where you can go back in time.” If that doesn’t sound awesome enough, then I guess “barf” is supposed to be the icing on the cake.

Super Time Force will be released in “late May/early June”


Joystiq caught up with Nathan Vella, the President of Capybara Games, at PAX East 2014 and they managed to get him to talk about the release window of Super Time Force. According to Vella, the game will be submitted to Microsoft for certification soon and, because there’s no multiplayer mode and just a single Leaderboard, it should sail through rather quickly. So he expects the game to be available for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 sometime in “late May or early June.”

Super Time Force has suffered multiple delays over the last year, but Vella also said they were needed to create the kind of game players expected to play: “It was always cool, the original game jam game was cool, but what we’ve turned it into is what I think people expected when they saw the very first trailer.”

Microsoft @ PAX East 2014: Project Spark, TitanFall, Super Time Force, more

xboxone-boxMicrosoft plans to have a huge presence at this year’s PAX East convention, but temper your expectations, as most of the games they’re bringing to the show are already available to all.

The centerpiece of the Xbox booth will be this Spring’s biggest game, TitanFall. It will be joined by cartoony shooter Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (originally released in February), game creator Project Spark (which is currently available in open beta), and a quartet of launch games (Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Killer Instinct). Early April releases Kinect Sports Rivals and Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut will also be playable at the Microsoft booth.

As of right now, the only unreleased game Microsoft plans to show in its PAX East booth is Super Time Force. This leads me to guess that Super Time Force is probably going to be added to the Xbox Live Store pretty soon. Just a hunch.

More details on Microsoft’s PAX East 2014 plans for all of these titles are available after the break. You can also read all about the panels the consolemaker will be hosting, including a Project Spark panel, a TitanFall panel, and a live recording of Major Nelson’s podcast. (more…)

Super Time Force coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2014

Capybara Games previously revealed that their Xbox 360 shooter, Super Time Force, would be released in 2013. Today, the developer has some good news for us as well as some bad news.

The good news is that Super Time Force is also in development for the Xbox One. The team at Capy hopes to the release the game on next-generation consoles at the same time as the Xbox 360 edition. What this means is that the bad news is that Super Time Force won’t be released in 2013. In order to build both versions of the game, Capy had to move Super Time Force’s launch to “a few months into 2014.”

You can check out the new Super Time Force trailer above and consider the quick look at Capy’s other in-development project, Below, as a bonus.

Meanwhile, Polygon also chatted with the studio head yesterday and he revealed that their fourth dimensional shooter for the Xbox 360, Super Time Force, is “feature locked” and will be released in 2013.

They’re vague release dates, but it’s more than we had pre-PAX Prime.
