Arcen Games' flagship title, AI War, turns four years old this week. Four years! In today's seemingly "churn 'em and burn 'em" world of games, it's impressive that a title has not only maintained its lifespan for that period of time, but the developers themselves continue to support it and release new content for it. In celebration of this occasion, Arcen is offering a bundle deal of all that content for just $6, including their latest expansion: Vengeance of the Machine. It's easy math. 1 game plus 5 expansions = $6.
Space Nomads, the cooperative defense from Loading Studios, has recently launched a crowdfunding drive on Indiegogo.

When a new Arcen Games title is released, I am immediately intrigued by it. What new take on a well-known genre have they done this time and does it work? Skyward Collapse is a turn-based strategy/"god" game where you are responsible for the development and existence of two warring factions: the Norse and the Greek. The catch? You have to prevent either faction from destroying the other. Oh, and you can't tell the people what to do. Free will really is problematic.
[Update]: Skyward Collapse is now available on Steam for less than $5.
When we spoke with Arcen Games' Founder/CEO/Lead Programmer/Lead Designer Chris Park last month, he talked about two of their upcoming co-op titles: Skyward Collapse and Exodus of the Machine. Hard as it may be to believe, Skyward Collapse sees its release on Steam this very day, and it brings with it an eight-player cooperative mode. That's a lot of friends to help you create a civilization!

Hard to believe, but Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition was released exactly one year ago yesterday. What better way to celebrate the first year anniversary of the sandbox classic than to make a free set of birthday skins available to all players? That is exactly what Microsoft and Mojang have decided to do. Aptly titled the "1st Birthday Skin Pack," this particular skin pack will add an additional 23 skins to the already huge assortment of 319 skins that can be found in eight other packs. Here's a list of all of the skins that are included in the birthday bash:
Let's face it. There are two types of people in the world. Those who love Minecraft, and those who don't. For those of us who love Minecraft, we are usually pretty happy to hear about news of any kind regarding the game. With Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, more often than not that news is usually regarding a new skin pack. While these skin packs do not alter the actual gameplay in the slightest, they serve as a fun and entertaining alternative from the original skins. We enjoy distinguishing our co-op partners online by the myriad of skins that have been released since the game first came out for the Xbox 360.

Attempts have been made to improve the experience so check out the full list of fixes and updates that will hit next time you boot up the game.

Digging is the name of the game in Terraria. In this 2D sandbox-metroidvania, you will need to collect loads of items to become a stronger pixelated character. The cult PC title comes to the XBLA and PSN and features both local and online cooperative play.
