Today is a big day for Xbox Live Arcade lovers as Dust: An Elysian Tail is about to be released for 1200 Microsoft Points. Since we only got the game yesterday, we haven't had time to play much, but suffice to say it is a very promising title. First and foremost, it looks great and the gameplay mechanics are a lot of fun. Here are a first batch of videos showing the first 20 minutes of the adventure. More will follow as soon as possible for those who need to see more before making up their mind. Update 2: One last videos added.
@Sdarts: Don't hate on pixel art you douche :) (18 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: Industry Icon is not usually for one game, but your contribution to the gaming industry I feel. There are several developers that I feel deserved it before Kojima I should have said. (20 minutes ago)
And heck one of my main complaints about the Monkey Island 1 remake is that you can't play the talky version with the OG graphics. Pixels don't offend me. (21 minutes ago)
A GOG version would be.. pretty much ScummVM. And you totally do not need HD assets to enjoy LucasArts games. Played Sam & Max Hit the Road like two months ago. It's still beautiful. (22 minutes ago)
If only GOG had a version. Either way, an HD remaster made just to work with new systems and some HD assets is all I need. (25 minutes ago)
@Megido: Lost the CD a long time ago between movings. I have used ScummVM and VirtualBox before, but playing though a window or fullscreen at very low resolutions does more harm than good. (26 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: If you have the original you can just play it with ScummVM :) (41 minutes ago)
