Minecraft sells 10 million on Xbox 360, plus a DLC sale

Damn. 10 million copies of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition have been sold to date. I'd say the person responsible for initiating the deal that would eventually lead to this version coming about deserves a raise, or a pat on the b...

You don't say: Super Time Force also coming to Xbox One photo
You don't say: Super Time Force also coming to Xbox One
by Jordan Devore

No, Xbox 360s haven't magically become irrelevant now that the Xbox One is out, but developers are starting to make the transition all the same. For a game like Super Time Force, it makes total sense that it would release across both systems.

Capy will self-publish its side-scrolling shooter on Xbox One "a few months into 2014." As a result, the Xbox Live Arcade version won't be done this year as previously expected. Instead, it will be out at the same time as Xbox One -- that's the plan, anyway. A long wait made even longer, but Super Time Force should be well worth it based on how well the game shows at expos.

There's a bit of footage in this trailer, as well as another look at the studio's other Xbox One game, Below. Both are shaping up quite nicely.

Xbox! Go to Capy Games! [Capy]

Review: Foul Play photo
Review: Foul Play
by Patrick Hancock

The beat-'em-up genre has some serious classics in it; Turtles in Time and Castle Crashers immediately come to mind. There’s just something about those games that cement them as amazing experiences in our mind. Playing with buddies, throwing enemies at the screen, watching deer explosively poop, and some satisfying yet simple gameplay mechanics combine to bring smiles to our faces and put memories into our squish-brains.

Foul Play enters the genre with its own calling card: everything is done on-stage, in a theater. It’s a gimmick that works very well, but as I’m sure we all know, an aesthetic can only carry a game so far in this world.

Review: Final Exam photo
Review: Final Exam
by Wesley Ruscher

Eight years ago when Microsoft kicked off this generation with the Xbox 360, the concept of downloadable arcade titles on a home console was nothing more than a vision. With the Xbox 360 came the Xbox Live Arcade and one addictive title that I still play to this day: Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved. Sony and Nintendo followed suit, with their respective services and a digital generation from the comfort of the couch was born.

Along with downloadable titles, one other prominent trend that this generation can lay claim to (and hopefully move on from) is that of the zombie game. There are too many titles to list, and while some were great -- one even earning our game of the year for 2012 -- most were forgettable.

Well, as we wind down to Sony’s and Microsoft’s next console launches, and usher in another era of high-definition gaming, it’s only fitting that we begin to wrap up this generation with one more zombie game.

This solo eggplant run in Spelunky is a must-watch

It's been some time since we've posted a Spelunky run on Destructoid but, I think you'll agree, this one is worth seeing. If you're familiar enough with the game to know about the eggplant -- it's earned by sacrificing a Mys...

Review: Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force
by Ian Bonds

Back in February, Zen Studios released three tables based on the Star Wars series, adding to the already vast library of tables for Pinball FX2. They were fantastic, diverse, and just as feature-rich as the other tables for the game. Many believed it would be hard for the studio to match that collection.

These newest tables not only match the previous set but manage to surpass it.
