New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneAnoxemiaXbox fans, it's time to try Anoxemia. Microsoft says:

"Anoxemia is a story-driven exploration game that puts you in control of the scientist Dr. Bailey and his operations drone, ATMA. Search the ocean floor as you discover and extract samples from the bowels of the underwater caves. Danger lurks in each passageway, from poison drifts to powerful ocean currents, mines leftover from the war, and mobile machines running haywire. There’s also the ever-present risk of running out of oxygen. Fortunately, ATMA can help guide you to your destination using a few special tools and upgrades. Features a unique sci-fi horror story that unfolds while you explore 35+ levels of unique underwater terrain."

Also available: Air Guitar Warrior for Kinect, Snake Pass, and The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Episode 3.

Skyfall Isn't Coming to BotCon

Chain!BotConBotCon is over, finished - but there were plans for 2017. Tformers is reporting that you can see the Cancelled BotCon 2017 Convention Boxed Set at Pete's Robot Convention - with the one set of mock-ups being offered as a door price. That's a big deal.

Action Masters Skyfall (pictured) was revealed as Highbrow with Apeface's head - that's pretty awesome. The others will be revealed before (or at) the show in June. Also keep your eyes peeled for customs based on these designs, especially if the others use off-the-shelf parts.

New Transformers Cyber Battalions, Exclusives Hitting

TransformersNewnessWhat a lovely day! Via Autobase Aichi: Transformers Cyber Battalion Prowl and Jetfire are showing up in stores. The last batch were originally China/South American exclusives that started to show up much, much later at Universal Studios theme parks. The costs at the theme parks orbit $35, but you can probably get them for $25 or so delivered from overseas. I will be doing this. If you see some for sale, let me know.

Closer to home is the Chaos on Veloctron set, exclusive to Toys R Us. It's hitting now - someone found one in Erie, Pennsylvania according to Tformers and other reputable toy news sites. It's $99.99.

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneGoat Simulator: Waste Of Space BundleXbox fans, it's time to try Goat Simulator: Waste Of Space Bundle. Microsoft says:

"Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. Destroy things with style, such as doing a backflip while head-butting a bucket through a window, and you’ll earn even more points! Goat Simulator is a completely stupid game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else, such as a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat. Goat simulation is finally leaving the planet where it was once conceived to explore the endless possibilities of space. You no longer have to fantasize about colonizing space as a simulated goat. Your dreams have finally come true."

Also available: This Is The Police, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Troll & I, Super Dungeon Bros MEGA Bundle Pack, Vermintide – Digital Value Pack, and Blue-Collar Astronaut.
