Miss Burnout's Crash Mode? Keep An Eye On ScreamRide

Miss Burnout's Crash Mode? Keep An Eye On ScreamRide

ScreamRide, the rollercoaster project from Frontier Developments, is slated to hit Xbox One and Xbox 360 on March 3. Although its development team consists of talent from family friendly games like Kinect Disneyland Adventures, Kinectimals, and Roller Coaster Tycoon, ScreamRide is all about destruction, violence, and murder. In the video below, roller coasters are created to topple skyscrapers by turning the coaster car (and its riders) into makeshift wrecking balls.

Today we learned that ScreamRide consists of four different avenues of play. The most appealing is Demolition Expert, a mode that pushes the player to launch the coaster into destructible objects. Much like the Burnout series' Crash mode, the hope is to create chain reactions that level as many buildings as possible.

The second level type, ScreamRider, gives you direct control over coaster's speed and lean functions. You're tasked to create the most intense ride possible to please the riders. This includes having the car up on two wheels. You fail when people fall off of the ride.

Undead Labs Spills New State Of Decay Details, Release Date

Undead Labs Spills New State Of Decay Details, Release Date

State of Decay has developed a cult following since its release a few years ago. While it's certainly not without its share of faults, the game does an excellent job of showing an aspect of the zombie apocalypse that's rarely seen in games: managing all the survivors. Keeping the home fires burning is just as critical to survival as cutting through crowds of zombies, and balancing the two sometimes conflicting priorities can add extra layers of tension. If you missed out on it before, you'll have one less excuse this April with the release of State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition.

Microsoft and Undead Labs announced that they were bringing an enhanced version the game to Xbox One and PC last August, and now they've released additional details about what's in the remastered version. The Year-One Edition combines the original release and its two previously released DLC packages, Breakdown and Lifeline. Breakdown was the game's sandbox mode, which stripped the story away from the original release and simply challenged players to stay alive as long as they could. Breakdown moved the action into a new city, and let players experience the catastrophe from the perspective of a military unit. As they learned, superior firepower only means so much against such an unrelenting opponent.

Sierra Announces Flatulence-Filled Puzzler, Shiftlings

Sierra Announces Flatulence-Filled Puzzler, Shiftlings

Sierra has announced that it will be publishing Rock Pocket's puzzle game Shiftlings, an outer-space adventure featuring two characters, a shared air hose, and the least-appealing way of inflating their spacesuits.

The game takes place on a reality show, where contestants have to work their way through obstacles to win prizes. To further complicate things, players are tethered to a partner with an air hose. They'll need to cooperate to slide blocks, hit switches, and all the puzzle stuff you've probably seen before. As the trailer shows, there is a bit of a twist. The two characters have to alternate between normal and inflated versions of their suits to provide bounce pads for their partner, float on air vents, and more. How do they do that? Farts.
