Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee now available on Nintendo Switch




Time to Save Oddworlds Endangered Species!!

Those of us old enough to remember Abe and his original adventure, or oddysee if you will, hold a bit of a soft spot for the little guy. That or we are all still laughing at him dropping one and giggling.... Either way fond memories for all. 
Well now Abe has returned along with Munch on an all new adventure for the Nintendo Switch. 
Check out the release below  for a bit of a breakdown of what to expect and the be sure to watch the trailer at the bottom. 

Will you be helping Abe and Munch through their next adventure? 

Snoogs



Oddworld Inhabitants, Inc. and Microids team up to release the classic game Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee. Initially available on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch, Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee is the classic action adventure game with an ecological heart ported to the world's most innovative and popular handheld, tabletop, and traditional all-in-one gaming console. The physical version will be released later this year.

The story begins with you playing as a Gabbit named Munch, the hero of the Oddest Oddysee of all. Munch’s luck is about to change – for the worse.
How would you feel if you broke your leg in a scrab trap, were abducted by soulless scientists, had an alien device implanted in your skull, and found out your race had been hunted to extinction?

Due to the rich variety of consumer products derived from the Gabbit species, their legacy has nearly come to its end. For the amphibious Gabbit, there is only one lonely individual that survives. However, it won’t be spotted where one might typically find such a Gabbit. This one is currently an entrapped test subject within the horrible testing facility known as Vykkers Labs. It is up to you to help guide Munch in efforts to rescue fellow test creatures. These critters will be forever loyal to Munch and in turn enable his escape.



Once free, Munch teams up with Abe and together they are guided by the wisdom of the Almighty Raisin.  They are informed as to how to accomplish their goals, but in order to do so, they must work together. For Munch, his dream is to bring back his species from the brink of extinction. For Abe, it is to rescue his Mudokon buddies.

You can “switch” between Munch and Abe depending on the situation. Using special psychic powers, cool power-ups, and other special abilities to deliver payback to the Vykkers, Abe and Munch set out to reclaim the last gabbit eggs on Oddworld, which have been packaged in a can of gabbiar.

May Odd help you!

Xbox 20/20 - The Future of Gaming


Well, as we get further into 2020, the new generation of gaming consoles is lurking ever so much closer. Thankfully, the team over at Xbox have been feeding our minds with a solid line of information of what is in store and there's a bunch of stuff there to be excited about. Well that line of information continues with the information that has been provided below. Should you not have the time to comb through this entire post, take special notice of the section headed with Xbox 20/20. We will be seeing more next gen game play this week. Make sure to check that one out. Should you continue reading down this post, enjoy.

So, what is in store for 2020?

This is a momentous year for Xbox, with our next-gen console paving the way for all our games and services to come together in even better ways. Here’s what 2020 looks like, just to start:
  • Our goal remains to launch Xbox Series X and Halo Infinite this Holiday
  • All 15 Xbox Game Studios teams are hard at work on next-generation games for Xbox Series X and Xbox Game Pass
  • The best development teams around the world are working hard to have their games ready to play on Xbox Series X this holiday
  • For PC players, we plan to support the community by making all our major releases at launch available with Xbox Game Pass for PC, including Halo Infinite, Wasteland 3, Minecraft Dungeons and of course, Microsoft Flight Simulator.
  • We have new updates and titles lined up for Xbox Game Pass for console and PC
  • We’re expanding Project xCloud into new countries and on new devices—and later this year Project xCloud and Xbox Game Pass will come together, enabling you and your friends to play together in more ways.
  •  
It’s a lot – and that’s saying something in 2020, a year which could be summed up as “a lot.” With all this in mind, we set out to create new touchpoints to celebrate gaming and share what’s next with our global community.


Xbox 20/20

Starting with the May 8 episode of Inside Xbox, we will be showcasing what happens next in the world of Xbox, every month, which is why we’re calling it “Xbox 20/20.” These monthly moments will take place throughout the rest of the year and will be a way for us to engage, connect and celebrate with you about what’s in store for the next generation of gaming, including what’s next for Xbox Series X, Xbox Game Studios, Xbox Game Pass and Project xCloud. Every month will bring something different. Stay tuned to Xbox Wire for more details.

For the Xbox 20/20 May update, we will focus on giving you a first look at next-gen gameplay, trailers and sneak peeks from a wide variety of publishing partners and independent developers across the globe and industry, including Ubisoft’s recently announced Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and hear from game creators about what they’re doing with their games on Xbox Series X.

We’ll be confirming games that utilise our new Smart Delivery feature, which ensures that you always play the best version of the games you own for your console, across generations. And all the games you’ll see will be Xbox Series X Optimised, meaning they are built to take advantage of the powerful Xbox Series X features that make games look and feel incredible, including 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second, DirectStorage, hardware-accelerated DirectX raytracing, super-fast load times and much more.

In July, we will dedicate time to focus on the incredible games coming from Xbox Game Studios. A number of our studio teams are looking forward to sharing first looks at new gameplay, insights from development teams being optimised for Xbox Series X, and brand-new game announcements.  We cannot wait to share this initial look at what some of those teams are working on.

How to join Xbox 20/20 on May 8

I hope you’ll join me at 1 a.m. AEST on May 8 for the next episode of Inside Xbox and the first moment of Xbox 20/20. You can tune-in on:
  • Mixer.com/Xbox
  • Twitch.tv/Xbox
  • Facebook.com/Xbox
  • Twitter.com/Xbox
  • YouTube.com/Xbox for the 4K stream

Live language support for the episode will be in English, LATAM Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German and Italian, and the episode will include live Audio Descriptions at /MixerAD.

As we’ve seen in recent weeks, gaming is being used for entertainment, for inspiration, and for strengthening social connections between you and your friends through shared adventures. As you continue to connect with your friends around the world through gaming, we look forward to sharing more of our plans on Xbox Wire so you can all join us as we look into the future of Xbox.

You’ll get more news and updates on Xbox Series X, reveals of new Xbox Game Studios and development partner titles, details on the future of Xbox Game Pass, and much more.

I’ve always believed in the future Team Xbox has been building with its community around the world. To join that vision and make it part of my own responsibilities is something I just couldn’t pass up when I joined the Xbox Marketing team last December and, today, I feel more reassured than ever that we’ll be able to bring it to pass with the help of our community.


Stay safe and be good to one another.

But thankfully we are part of a massive world wide community who not only uses but strives with technology and new ways to communicate and interact with each other.

There will be over 40 game exhibitors, 10+ panels from industry leaders discussing game development, a sale featuring over 50 games, plus 20+ playable demos during the event!

Available demos include Paradise Killer, Suzerain, Genesis Noir, Over the Alps, Wayward Strand, and Welcome to Elk, among others.

Grip is available for free and a relatively small download at just over 4gb. 




As it is a title available for free I won't do a traditional review however tune into our weekly podcast to hear my thoughts. 

For now, hit up One Bar Games website, follow them on Facebook and check out Grip for yourself to support some good local Aussie talent.
