Following an ignominious debut on the Xbox One, developer Twisted Pixel Games is bringing LocoCycle to the Xbox 360 and PC just in time for the most romantic day of the year. For those who missed our scathing review, Lococyle is a motorcycle combat game that mates intentionally campy full-motion v...

It just wouldn't be a new Twisted Pixel game without full-motion video interludes. Video gaming's most earnest and awkward narrative relic will appear in LocoCycle, the developer's Xbox One launch game in which you hurtle down the freeway as a sentient, weaponized motorcycle. Named I.R.I.S., the v...

Twisted Pixel's LocoCycle will set you back $20 when it wheels onto the Xbox One online store at launch. The first next-gen game from the Comic Jumper and 'Splosion Man studio is also due on Xbox 360, but we're waiting for details on that version to cycle through. In LocoCycle you play as a sentie...

LocoCycle may continue developer Twisted Pixel's tradition of ridiculous premises – a sentient motorcycle on the run, in this case – but it will be following some very different musical cues. For the Xbox One launch game, Twisted Pixel's longtime composer Matt "Chainsaw" Chaney has swi...

The main hero and villain of Twisted Pixel's LocoCycle have a couple of things in common. Both of them are sentient motorcycle superweapons, and both of them have acronyms for names – I.R.I.S. and S.P.I.K.E., respectively. We asked Twisted Pixel just what their names stand for, and studio hea...

A man made of explosions breaks out of a lab as fleeing scientists burst into charred hams. A lame superhero's comic is canceled and he fights to get back on the shelves. An undead puppet fueled by demonic tacos rises from the grave to take revenge on his posse. If there's one thing you can count o...

It's a black set-top box. It's a media streamer. It's dependent on an internet connection. It's a living room hub. It wants to be your everything. But really, the Xbox One (or any new, next-gen console for that matter) is nothing without launch games. To get a real sense of that lean-in experience...

Microsoft's Twisted Pixel studio (The Maw, 'Splosion Man) announced today that its upcoming LocoCycle will be an Xbox One launch title. An Xbox 360 version of the game is also under development, with a "not yet determined" release window. The game will be playable at E3, but here's a preview o...

You may think, after watching the initial trailer, that Twisted Pixel pulled LocoCycle (in which you control a renegade robotic motorcycle that shoots and karate-chops its way across the country) out of some loony creative cauldron of its own making. But that's not quite true, says studio director...
