New Games for the Xbox One Released

Xbox OneThe Golf ClubXbox fans, it's time to download Chariot, a $14.99 (or free if you're Gold) game. Microsoft says:

"Chariot is a humorous, physics-based couch co-op platformer in which a brave Princess and her Fiancé carry a funeral wagon through ancient caves, fending off swarms of looters while amassing riches, to bury the King's remains in a worthy, gold-filled tomb. If only his majesty would keep quietŠ The chariot's large wheels and long tethers allow the heroes to reach higher ground, swing across chasms and perform all sorts of impressive maneuvers. Extract riches from the very walls of the caves in multiple environments, and make your way to the exit by avoiding ­ or beating back ­ greedy looters as they attempt to steal your hard-earned loot! With skill-testing coordination mechanics and thrilling physics-based stunts required, Chariot will definitely please couch co-op enthusiasts as teamwork and cooperation unlock new possibilities."

Play With This Too Reveals More

ToysNewVia Play With This Too: Astroblast in Color.

A line of articulated 6-7-inch action figures with 5mm compatibility and Masters of the Universe Classics-style articulation is in the works with no known pricing or ETA. The figures are said to be designer toys, and from the look of things they take some direction from Transformers Pretenders toys of old.

Following a loathsome trend, rather than post stuff on their own web site PWTT is posting a ton of new images and art to Tumblr. Astroblast and Desolator art are up now and they do look fairly ambitious. The line itself has no name as of yet, and they do seem a lot more intricate than most current strains of indie and Kickstarter-derived action toys.
