preGAME 21: Deathspank, Limbo, and Blacklight: Tango Down
With the summer gaming drought in full effect, we figured it was a perfect time to dive into the world of digital-downloadable games. On today's episode, we'll demo three download-only titles: Deathspank, Limbo, and Blacklight: Tango Down.
With a game drought also comes a news drought, but we were happy to hear about this morning's announcement of an official release date and price for Microsoft Kinect. The body motion-sensing attachment will ship November 3 for $150.
While we had a fairly good idea of how much Kinect would cost, we were happy to see the unveiling of the Xbox 360 Arcade's replacement, a $200 matted Xbox 360 slim console with 4GB of internal flash storage. A Kinect/Arcade bundle will also be available November 3 for $300.
We have a trio of top-notch download-only games being demoed today, so make sure to tune in. Two developers Darren Evenson and Hamish Millar from Deathspank join us on the phone to chat about Ron Gilbert's latest comedic-driven adventure title and bring some of their own brand of humor to the show as well.
