From Dust hands on E3 2011 demo

By: BatRastered Jun 30, 2011 | 2 Comments

FnJimmy's favorite game (based on time spent playing) of E3.

From Dust allows you to mold the landscape by moving sand, water, lava and more around the map to help the people survive. FnJimmy would not stop playing this game, we must have been there for a good half an hour. I think he railed the first two levels before we left. I think it had something to do with the Ubisoft booth babe who was giving him the demo.

Here's his official take afterwards...

From Dust will be available exclusively on XBOX Live Arcade July 27, 2011 for 1200 MSP.

FnJimmy gets a demo with ITSP and Michel Gagne in the Microsoft booth at E3 2011.

If you like Metroid-vania style gaming, but don't like the platform jumping aspect of it, I've got a game for you. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet takes the single world, upgrade yourself to reach new areas and back track to explore old areas in further detail concept and applies it to a spaceship flying around this world. With a Limbo-esque art style and an arcade price tag, this one is looking like a winner.

FnJimmy got some hands on time with the game and, right in front of designer Michel Gagne, proceeded to crash it. Unfortunately we weren't filming when that happened. :( Here's FnJimmy's offical take to soften the blow.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet will be released exclusively for the XBOX Live Arcade on August 3, 2011 for 1200 MSP.
