Hydrophobia Getting Massive Revamp Tomorrow December 20, 2010

I have been on the fence for a while about whether or not I will be getting the Xbox Live Arcade game Hydrophobia.  I read a lot of the initial previews of the game, and was fascinated by it’s water simulation technology, as well as the gameplay that goes along with it.  It has been on a short list of must-buy premium XBLA games for me, along with Comic Jumper (which I did buy recently and loved) and Costume Quest (which I haven’t been able to afford yet).

Xbox Live Arcade game Hydrophobia was released a few months ago, but tomorrow it will be getting a major patch with a laundry list of fixes.  Take a look at the provided video at what is being changed and updated.

Here are the full patch notes, they’re just too long to post on the site!

To cap it off, it will also get a price reduction from 1200MS points to 800MS points.  Hydrophobia is currently an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive for the Xbox 360.  If you have been on the fence like me about buying it, save a few dollars and don’t buy it until tomorrow!

Infamous to get Six-Issue Comic Series December 20, 2010

Infamous, a hit PS3-exclusive from last year, is getting a six-issue comic series which will bridge the gap between the first and second games.

As a comic book fan, I felt the first Infamous game really succeeded in bringing the graphic art style of a comic book or graphic novel to life, and everything from the art direction to the acting made you believe you were playing a realistic superhero in a realistic world.  We already knew that the protagonist of the first game, Cole, will be starting over in a new city for this next game, on the trail of a new antagonist, the comic series will detail that journey.

Infamous (The Comic) has no release date but it is being published by DC Comics and will have a six-issue run.
