Meet Rextro-Sixtyfourus, Dino Keeper Of The Old Games

Today Playtonic Games, a studio comprised of many former Rare developers, announced via IGN the latest character in the Yooka-Laylee roster. The successful Kickstarter harks back to the Nintendo 64 3D platformers of old, so it's only fitting that it features a character that looks like he's ripped right out of the late '90s console era. Meet Rextro-Sixtyfourus, your polygonal dinosaur pal.

Most of you probably already figured out Rex's clever name, but let's unpack it to be certain. The "Rextro" is clearly going for "retro," to cement the fact that this scanlined thunder lizard is old school. The "Sixtyfourus" portion of this name is a clear reference to the Nintendo 64, the console on which Rare won the hearts of many. Rextro's aesthetic aims to evoke the era that Yooka-Laylee is pulling from, complete with a blocky, polygonal shape and a scanline-riddled texture reminiscent of older CRT televisions.

This dinosaur, a proper relic of the past, also guards a collection of arcade machines scattered throughout Yooka-Laylee's world. Players can tackle the challenges these retro games present to earn another collectible to progress through the game.

“I’m such a fan of what Chair has made and the things that they’ve allowed me and my kids to play,” Abrams says. “I remember the first time I played Infinity Blade, and it blew my mind what you guys had done with Unreal Engine on that device. I feel like its a natural progression from what we’ve been doing. We really wanted to expand into this area of entertainment.”

Star Wars Battlefront Ad Features People Getting Undressed With The Force

If you don’t know anything about Star Wars, you might assume that the latest Battlefront live action commercial is about people taking off their clothes. Thankfully, that’s not the message here.

The new ad is a callback to the scene in A New Hope in which Obi-Wan allows Darth Vader to “strike him down.” What follows is Obi-Wan disappearing, leaving his robes behind in a pile on the Death Star floor.
