Previously, ACE Team co-founder Carlos Bordeu told us about his studios' interest in bringing the delightfully bizarre Zeno Clash over to Xbox LIVE Arcade. Having been powered by the Source Engine on PC, the transition to Xbox 360 for the first-person brawler seemed like the way to go.

And, according to publisher Atlus, it was. As spotted by NeoGAF user Volcynika, the Ultimate Edition will bring new "modes, features, added content, and improvements based on fan feedback." One such addition is the co-op Tower Challenge mode.

ACE Team has been graciously supportive of Zeno Clash on PC post-launch, so it'll be interesting to see if these extra features in the XBLA version get added back to the original by way of a patch. To be fair, I suppose you have to give people a reason to want the shiny new package, right?

Not that the game's melee system didn't work well on the standard mouse plus keyboard combo (it did), but I think tackling Zeno Clash with a controller may very well be something worth experiencing. Also, Achievements -- don't act like you don't want 'em.

Gone Home. It spawned the worst debate since, "Is it art?" the dreaded, "Is it a game?" Thankfully it lead to more thoughtful writing, too, outside of that human centipede.  It was previously announced for undisclosed co...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
