Daily Games Rundown: November 24th

jmaltz@pnosker.com November 24, 2010 0

In the first full games digest we're producing we've got a ton of information for you including trailers of everything from pinball games to arcade racers and even an announcement about the latest game coming out of Double Fine Studios.


Today Zen studios released first trailer of a game that we’ve been talking a fair bit about over the past week: Marvel Pinball.  The developers have released a look at the Iron Man table: one of the four that you’ll be playing on next year.  The trailer makes pinball look almost exhilarating.

The developers also revealed that by hitting certain combinations of bumpers, you will be able to send Tony Stark into boss battles with famous villains from the series.  Hopefully this is emblematic of some of the depth we’ll see out of Marvel Pinball when it launches before the calendar turns.

Also announced today was another some new Naughty Bear DLC.  This content , titled Chapter 10, will see gaming’s naughtiest bear facing off against all sorts of vampiric bears.  In addition to the new story content and costumes, Chapter 10 will give players four new multiplayer modes.  These include Left 4 Ted: a survival game mode; this will be partnered with vampire themed deathmatch, survival, and king of the hill modes to round out the DLC suite.

 


Chapter 10 will run you 800 MSP or $9.99 on the PS3 and can be yours right away.


As one of the standard bearers for unique gaming in the industry, when Double Fine announces a new title it is certainly newsworthy.  Today they have done just that, announcing Stacking, the second game in Double Fine’s partnership in THQ.

 


In Stacking, a game whose development was led by Jack Lee, players will take control of Charlie, the youngest of a group of Russian stacking dolls.  After being separated from the rest of his family, Charlie must go throughout the world finding the rest of his family and in the process will gain their skills.  Players must use this combination of stacking dolls to find one of the multiple solutions to the game’s puzzles.

The second game in the Double Fine/THQ partnership will be coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 this Spring and looks to be bringing the type of puzzle gaming and humor that made the development studio icons in the gaming community.
