Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition Review

Pretty sure they’re not going to do an Arcade or Ultra edition next.

Since they’ve hit the scene, I think I’ve built up something of a love affair with indie developer, Drinkbox Studios. They have an uncanny ability to create not only compelling gameplay, but memorable and humorous worlds and characters. Guacamelee is easily their greatest achievement yet, and the new Super Turbo Championship Edition only makes it better. Just the name alone should give you a perfect indication of the tongue-in-cheek humor Drinkbox imbues into their creations.

Sony Snags Guacamelee!

What else are they gonna dip all those chips in?

DrinkBox Studios turned a few heads at PAX East with their reveal of Guacamelee!, “Mexican themed co-op-multiplayer dimensions-swapping Metroid-vania beat-em-up platformer” starring a “down on his luck Mexican anmed Juan Aguacate.” Just from that sentence alone, you can see why people were intrigued by this bizarre, yet beautiful game.  At least someone from Sony noticed enough to make Guacamelee! a PSN exclusive for both the PlayStation 3 and the Vita as part of Sony’s PlayStation Pub Fund Program.

Thankfully it isn't another Kane & Lynch game.

Last month information surfaced on NeoGaf that Square Enix had filed for a trademark on “Sleeping Dogs.”  Many presumed that this meant that another Kane & Lynch game would soon be forthcoming, as the last game in that series was subtitled, Dog Days.  Fortunately for us, Square Enix has put those dogs down and has instead announced Sleeping Dogs as a brand new, open-world action game set in the streets of Hong Kong.

A Super Smash Bros. Melee Tournament

Kyle details his latest tournament travels for Nintendo's most competitive brawler.

Last weekend I attended a Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament in Ottawa, Ontario (Canada). It’s certainly not my first one, but it’s the first since I’ve joined PixlBit. Despite being pretty small (the largest I’ve been to had around 243 entrants for Melee and around the same for Brawl), it was a lot of fun, and I got to hang out with a bunch of people I hadn’t seen in far too long. I’ve been playing the game competitively for years now, and with all the people I’ve met and the stuff we’ve done, I don’t see any reason to stop. Also, insert something sappy about friends and making memories .
