Today in pleasant surprises: Rock of Ages, a 2011 game that asked you to roll a boulder down a hill at medieval painting bad guys, has a sequel. It’ll be out this Fall on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
I was going to record commentary for my play through of Ace Team’s action-packed love letter to terrible ‘70s science fiction movies, but The Deadly Tower of Monsters brought its own, and it makes the game.
If you keep track of our weekly list of new game releases, you'll have noted that Atlus and Ace Team's Abyss Odyssey was one of the highlights of a very sparse week. What the heck is it? Watch and find out.
This neat little platformer is called Abyss Odyssey, and it's made by ACE Team, the studio behind Zeno Clash and Rock of Ages. Atlus will publish the game this summer as a digital release on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
Let's admit, the first Zeno Clash was fairly bonkers—but, by the looks of things, the sequel raises the bar on the insanity quite a bit. You get to suplex hairy dudes, punch bird people, and talk to some guy with a palette for a mouth. Just like in other first person beat-em-ups! But seriously, go watch the trailer,…
Rock of Ages, from Zeno Clash developers ACE Team, is a strange one. It's like Monty Python played a game of Odama. Which is in no way a bad thing.
If a game company is going to do something silly for April Fools' Day, we might as well all get a free game out of it, right? Today Atlus accuses developer ACE Team stole the idea for action-strategy game Rock of Ages and used it to make a 2D game that you can play right now.
Rock of Ages is a good name for ACE Team's (Zeno Clash) next project, but surely Super Monty Python Ball would have been better? I don't know. Maybe it was taken.
Namco Bandai takes to the skies on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next year with Ace Combat Assault Horizon, a rebirth for the franchise featuring helicopters, turret-gunning, and quick-time events.
Between the trailer, these screenshots, and the advertisements on every E3 badge holder, I'm terribly sorry I missed our E3 2010 appointment with Atlus and didn't see Rock of Ages, but I had to fly home. There was cake waiting.
This is Rock Of Ages, to be published by Atlus and developed by ACE Team. Those are the guys behind Zeno Clash. This looks just as kooky, but in a completely different way.
Perhaps you noticed that today Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition was supposed to release on Xbox Live Arcade. Perhaps you noticed that it did not. "It's been pushed back a tad," says the developer.
One good thing about many games built on Valve's Source engine is that developers often release the SDK (software development kit) for them. And so it is with Zeno Clash.
Anyone picking the game up over Steam this weekend won't pay the standard $20 asking price. They'll only pay $10. While I had my reservations about the game in our review, at $10, most of those go right out the window.
ACE Team's well-received first-person brawler Zeno Clash has only just been released, yet already, a sequel has been announced. We know it'll be Zeno Clashier than the first game, but just how, exactly?
Quirky PC brawler/shooter Zeno Clash did pretty good business on PC. So good, in fact, that the game looks set to make an appearance on Xbox Live Arcade.
