Adventures of Pip hands on: Pixelated platforming coming to Xbox consoles and Windows this May

17

Early this year, indie developer TicToc Games announced that their 2D platformer Adventures of Pip will be coming to Xbox One via the ID@Xbox program. Adventures of Pip stars a tiny pixel which can transform into a full-sized hero and back again in order to deal with enemies and solve puzzles. It boasts a clever mishmash of art styles and concepts borrowed from the 8-, 16-, and 32-bit eras of gaming.

We got a fair impression of Adventures of Pip from the announcement and trailers, but you never truly know what a game is like until you've played it. Considering this one is not due for release on Xbox One and 360, Windows and Mac, PlayStation 4, and Wii U until May, we might well have had to wait another few months to play it. Luckily, TicToc Games has granted us some hands-on time with their latest demo.

Read on for my impressions and a full video playthrough of the Adventures of Pip demo!

Top Windows Phone apps to help you survive March Madness

17

The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament begins today and for those who partake in March Madness there are a few Windows Phone apps in the Store to help you survive all the highs and lows of the games.

March Madness, for those not familiar, is one of the most popular sporting events around. Seventy-two teams will compete over the next few weeks to ultimately crown a NCAA Men's Basketball Champion. The event will generate billions in revenue and millions will be lost in job productivity due to everyone calling in sick to watch the games.

The number of apps exclusive to the NCAA Tourney have slimmed down a bit over the years but we were able to find a few for this roundup that should only help contribute to the chaos we know as March Madness.

Activision re-hires Titanfall defector to direct Call of Duty's multiplayer

37

Following the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Infinity Ward bosses Vince Zampella and Jason West were unceremoniously ousted from the company for 'breaches of contract and insubordination', (what the BBC would call a fracas). What followed was a mass exodus of what was seen as Infinity Ward's core talent, the majority of which joined West and Zampella's new venture, Respawn Entertainment, who went on to launch the successful Titanfall with EA backing.

At least one of those early defectors has now returned to Infinity Ward. Todd Aldermann is now Infinity Ward's multiplayer project director after spending time with Respawn, League of Legends' dev Riot Games and his own studio Scary Mostro.

Sling TV brings streaming television to the Xbox One [Update: now live]

97

Update 2: The Sling TV app is now officially live for Xbox One users with a one month free trial, or three months if you purchase a new Xbox One console from the Microsoft Store website or the company's retail stores in the US from now until March 22.

Update: Well that's weird. It looks like someone at Sling TV may have hit the "post" button a little prematurely. The blog post has since been taken down, leaving a test page in its wake. In any event, it looks like the service should be landing on the Xbox One soon enough, and we'll update this post again when it's live.
