Dragons and Bubbles in this Rayman Origins trailer


6:30 PM on 10.21.2011



Have you ever wondered what might be lurking inside the colorfully vibrant innards of an over-sized cartoon dragon? Well this new Rayman Origins trailer gives you a sneak peak at what you might encounter.

Rayman Origins, as the name suggests, goes back to it's 2D platforming roots but also takes a page from Mario's book by adding four player co-op. It really stands out among the crowd of recent platformers through the use of high quality sprites and stylized environments. I just love the expressions of joy on Rayman's face; you can tell that the artists on this game really enjoyed bringing that character to life. 

Rayman Origins will hit store shelves November 15 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. But as great as this game looks, I wonder how much content the game will provide considering that this title was initially conceived as a downloadable.

Rayman Origins out today for PC via digital distribution

I'm hopeful that Rayman Origins will have a long-tail success; it would be tragic for a game this aesthetically pleasing to go unplayed by the masses. As of today, you can grab it on Steam or directly from Ubisoft for an affo...more

Review: Rayman Origins (Vita)

Once again, Rayman Origins is a 2D side-scrolling dream come, except this time it's on a smaller screen. One of the best and most beautiful games of last year returns on the PlayStation Vita for launch, and I had absolutely no problem playing it one more time for this review. more

PSA: Rayman Origins is out in stores today!

Usually we don't do these kind of "PSA" posts for retail games, but with Ubisoft sending the poor game out the same week as Saints Row: The Third, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Halo: Anniversary and even its own Assassin's Cr...more

Review: Rayman Origins

So, here's a funny story about my experience reviewing Rayman Origins. Sometimes when we receive a game for review, it's not exactly the final code, but a build intended to run on a version of the console hardware which isn't...more

You should be paying attention to Rayman Origins

Rayman Origins is out next week. Sadly, yet understandably, there isn't a noticeable buzz surrounding the title -- certainly not at the level of productivity-enders Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim. It is a full-priced 2D platfor...more

Rain World has competitive slugcat multiplayer and bat attacks

Rain World is still the best. And it's coming to Vita (and more). Jonathan Holmes went and chatted with Rain World's developers at PAX. In the background you can see a very early alpha multiplayer sandbox that looks to be in the vein of Samurai Gunn and Towerfall. You get points for eating flies and lizards and killing each other. Did you know lizard only has one "z"? That's weird.more

Review: Putty Squad

Of all of the games to get a PS4 remake, you'd probably never put Putty Squad, an SNES game from 1994, at the top of the list. But here we are in 2014 with a full-on re-imagining, with more or less the same platforming mechanics that still work nearly 20 years later. The only problem is, System 3 Software has opted to charge $29.99 for a decidedly dated game -- which is a bit of a problem.more
