XBLA this week: Adventures of Shuggy and Magic 2012 photo



I know, I know -- Adventures of Shuggy has an off-putting name. But, it's worth a look. Really, it is! This game is a solid platformer that revolves around single-room levels, many of which have different mechanics. One involves room tilting, while another takes a page from P.B. Winterbottom.

Variety is something platformers easily -- and often will -- botch. Adventures of Shuggy is $10, and if nothing else, give the demo a play when it hits Xbox Live this Wednesday.

And then there is Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, which I don't need to sell you on. If you are legitimately into MTG, your mind is already set. Just know that this one will set you back by $10 when it also goes live on Wednesday.

Coming this week on Xbox LIVE Arcade [Major Nelson]

Now that balance is being disrupted, as Dawn sends a faithful warrior, Aaru, to travel the domains of the other gods on a quest to remake the world. Dark and twisted lands await.more

PC Port Report: Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty

Like Chris, I had my first taste of Oddworld when it was new, back on the PlayStation in 1997. Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus were two of my favorite titles from that era, so when Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty was announced, I was...more
