Two new featured games for you guys...

September 18, 2007

Two new featured games for you guys today, both exploring the lighter and darker sides of city planning.

Tower Bloxx takes a cheerful view of city construction; an addictive, simple minigame wrapped in a larger macrogame, you'll need careful timing to reach for the stars with skyscrapers which stretch to the heavens. Place the buildings carefully to allow for the maximum population to inhabit your thriving metropolis.

Via Sol 2 is a trip to the dark side, requiring careful resource management to ensure that your post-apocalyptic civilization survives on a variety of harsh new planets. Be forewarned; Via Sol 2 has a steep learning curve, and meticulous play is required to survive.

As YouTube video submissions for our PTV Sandbox Contest pour in, we're keeping a watchful eye for stand-out videos; keep 'em coming!

Your actions have consequences; take a moral stand and fight for the pacifist way or indulge in your deep desires and walk the path of the antagonist. Either path includes a plethora of useful spells, upgrades and abilities.

XGen's largest development effort to date, Pillage the Village features unlockable content, sandbox mode, 12 spells and upgrades, and 9 unique foes. Under production for the past 11 Months, Pillage the Village was developed by an international team of 10 headquartered from XGen's new office in Edmonton, Canada.

July 12, 2007

Look out! It's some kind of... Avian Monstrosity! The Nuclear Eagle has landed at XGen! Try your hand at being the supreme atomic lord of the sky.

E3 is currently taking place in Santa Monica, California in it's more "industry-specific" form. Some great stuff has already hit the web; like a Killzone 2 trailer; now guaranteed to be real in-game footage, honestly... some appetizing Halo 3 Singleplayer Footage, and Video from Halo Wars; the RTS-offspring of the franchise. Mass Effect looks more incredible every time I see it.

Along with the eye candy comes the announcements: Mario Kart Wii in Q1 2008, Gears of War for PC, "Wii Fit" from Nintendo will get you in shape, and a new revision on the PSP!

Will It Blend tries to make an expensive "iPhone milkshake". Poor Apple fanboys everywhere shake their heads.
