Praise the sun! Sega has announced that its classic Genesis/Mega Drive Disney platformer, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, will receive generous lashings of HD paint when it gets re-released on PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 sometime this summer.
The remake of the 1990 classic, which will be a downloadable-only effort for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC, is being handled by Sega Studios Australia who will be working alongside Disney Interactive to bring the game to market.
This marks the second 16-bit era Disney title to go under the remake knife. Last month at PAX East, Capcom announced that it was prepping a remastered Duck Tales for a summer release also.

I’ll level with you; i’m horrendous at all facets of coding. In fact, i’m beyond horrendous at it.
The prospect of dusty books, elongated web-seminars and pages upon pages of code hieroglyphics just makes me want to yawn myself inside out and curl up into a little ball and think about fun things.
Thankfully, it seems that a group of ultra-clever computer scientists have picked up on this and have devised a way to get Java through the thick skulls of me and my ilk by communicating it to us through a language that we all understand; videogames.

Somebody with a lot more talent than I’ll ever have in my lifetime, has concocted this rather neat and extremely well-produced looking fan made live-action teaser for Dead Space.
It doesn’t show much of the Necromorph menace, but largely the atmosphere and sense of foreboding which was pretty much intrinsic with the IP before it went off the rails is all here, present and accounted for.
We’ve got the trailer for you after the jump and quite honestly, you’d struggle to find a better live-action approximation of Visceral‘s hellish franchise.

Hoping to utterly to erase any and all taste of last year’s reveal of Splinter Cell: Blacklist‘s decidedly un-stealthy shenanigans, Ubisoft have released a new, stealth focused trailer for the game to remind everyone that the game hasn’t devolved into an insipid, third-person shooter.
Rather than the in-game footage which has been released previously, this newest video instead frames Mr. Sam Fishers sneaky goings-on in a more cinematic style; showing off a whole bunch of gadgets, takedowns and light-foot treading in the process.
For anybody who was dismayed at that original reveal trailer, this’ll be music to your earholes.
That should be everybody then.
Catch it after the break.

The title says it all. Amazon recently replaced the generic “Coming Soon” art for Dark Souls II with this piece seen after the jump, presumably the official, finalized version of the box art. Looks like the game is just as grey as before, probably with even more hopelessness.

We’ve been reporting on lots of fun indie titles being ported over to the Vita, here’s one coming to the Wii U. Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion, aka Q.U.B.E. is a block puzzle game based on moving things utilizing physics and colors. It’s deceptively simple, meaning by stage five you’ll want to tear your hair out and scream because the difficulty ramps up to absolutely insane.
The game was originally released for PC in 2011, but according to some tweets from the developer it’ll be out for the Wii U soonish. No date, but they’ve already got it up and running on the Wii U’s gamepad, so it shouldn’t be too long.
State of Decay, the supremely ambitious open-world zombie survival romp for Xbox Live Arcade by Undead Labs, has at last been given a release date.
Due to arrive this June, which neatly coincides with Microsoft‘s annual Summer of Arcade promotion, the game looks to be a extremely promising prospect and one of the highlights of the year for Xbox Live Arcade.
An open-world zombie survival simulation where you have to build fortifications, recruit people to help you, manage morale, do raids for supplies and much more besides, it looks like it’ll make a pretty significant effort at revitalising the increasingly stale zombie sub-genre.
After the break, we’ve got a brand new trailer to show you as well as press-release detailing the release date announcement. You should also pop over to their official website too, as the myriad of gameplay systems within the game are given more of a fleshing out so to speak and is well worth a read.
This is one to look forward to folks.

How about that?
Someone is actually doing a Kickstarter for a new Road Rash type game for PC, Mac and Linux! Well, EA aren’t going to do anything with their asses sat on the license are they?
Titled Road Redemption, the developers, DarkSeas Games want just $160,000 to make this game a reality.
As of writing they’re currently sat on $4,768. Do you understand what I am saying to you? THIS IS A NEW ROAD RASH GAME. NEW! ROAD RASH! HELP THEM.
*Ahem*, anyway a pithy $15 is all that’s needed to secure a DRM-free copy of the game which the developer hopes to deliver next year should the venture be successfully funded.
Aiming to not only recapture the skill-based gameplay that defined the Road Rash franchises’ 16-bit and 3DO origins, Road Redemption also includes multiple mission types, a full-blown story, online multiplayer and much, much more.
We’ve got the trailer for you after the break, and, well, it looks bloody fantastic. Donate here you fools!
