Brought to us by Drinkbox Studios, the makers of Tales From Space: A Mutant Blob Attacks and Tales From Space: About a Blob, Guacamelee is highly influenced by the Mexican culture and stars an agave farmer named Juan Aguacate. El Presidente’s daughter has been kidnapped and Juan is deeply in love with her. He will travel through “The World of the Living” and “The World of the Dead” to rescue her.
Guacamelee will support co-op multiplayer and several “special features” that will be announced in the future. Gameplay will be shown off at E3 and with as good as the Mutant Blob games were, I’m drinking Drinkbox’s koolaid for this game as well.,
It’s the week before E3 and I know you’re all excited to see what announcements are made. I know I am. Unfortunately I won’t be there (hopefully next year) and it turns out FooBear won’t be able to make it either (sorry loyal minions) but we will still have a few people from the site attending.
We have a good chunk of news to talk about and Isli is here to join us. Hope you all enjoy this weeks podcast and let’s hope next week delivers some great gaming news!
Syndicate is a reboot that nobody seems to have asked for, especially not one that completely changes the genre from an isometric tactical game to first person shooter, rendering it beyond recognisable. Sure, we miss it and would probably welcome an HD remake, but making it virtually incomparable with its former entries? That’s akin to EA digging up your late gran and slapping in a bionic eye and an arm that turns into a tea stirrer so she can make you a cuppa just like you remembered. But is this reboot an improved and welcome revisit or does it add too much milk and not enough sugar? Here’s our review to find out.
First, we’ll start off by apologizing about the lateness of this giveaway, as we meant to have it up after EdEN had posted his review. Honestly, I had no idea we were giving any codes away, or I would have done this earlier! Anyway, we have a total of 10 codes to give away! These include 7 US codes and 3 EU codes. When we get the winners the codes, we’ll first ask what region you want the code for, but since we can’t guarantee that we’ll have 3 EU winners and 7 US winners, it will be first come, first serve.
With that said, each raffle ticket (save for the social media entries) will only cost 75 points, given that this is a minis title. You can ‘purchase’ up to 4 tickets. The giveaway will run until June 10th, so there’s plenty of time to get your entries in. Just don’t procrastinate! You might forget!
