Hive Threat: Rushes

"For every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction." These words are true even within the foreign environment of the hive. If you and your squad decimate a large number of aliens or their eggs in a short period of time, you'll be met by a rush...

Harmonix looks back on the rough battle between Guitar Hero/Rock Band

Coming from a GamesIndustry interview with Harmonix creative director Alex Rigopulos...

"It was just this epic slug-fest between MTV and Activision. They were both playing for to dominate that market. They were both trying to win. They both wanted commanding market share. It was just this slug-fest where both of them were trying to build as much inventory as possible to command the channel, you know the retail channels. That led to an oversupply situation that was kind of a financial nightmare at the end of the day for both parties. Thinking about that, I still have PTSD from that."

Toys R' Us location spotted stocking Mii Fighters amiibo 3-pack early

You know how this works. If one store is doing it, others might be doing the same. On top of that, can anyone actually get TRU to sell them one before the street date?

Team Meat strongly hinting at Super Meat Boy release for Wii U

Check out this blurb coming from Team Meat's announcement of Super Meat Boy on PS4/Vita...

To the fan's we're still excluding I'll leave you with this: Wii haven't forgotten about U.

Very clearly a tease of Wii U support. Since it's in a post all about Super Meat Boy, it only makes sense to think the game is coming our way.

Shantae Half-Genie Hero Kickstarter update - Costume vote, new animation engine

Let’s kick things off with another vote. And to vote properly, you’re going to need a little context. Remember that magic carpet race at Cape Crustacean? The chapter you all funded as a stretch goal? Well in that chapter, Shantae and friends need to infiltrate the race and identify the saboteur who’s been stealing carpets out from under everyone’s noses. Rottytops goes undercover posing as one of the Pit Crew, because hey -- why not? Here’s where you come in to flex your mighty voting muscles. Rather than a straight-up A, B, C vote like our previous ones, we’re going for a “two-fer”. You get to vote on a “Head Costume” and also a “Body Costume”. Then we’ll put the winning combination together, and BAM!! Instant Rottytops cosplay.

And here’s Shantae sporting her jammies! This is an example of our newly refined animation system which uses a combination of traditional hand drawn animation and custom created “Spine” rigs. Pretty dang awesome.
