The insane 2D MOBA Awesomenauts has been trucking along for a full year, continuously being updated with new characters, maps, and other goodies -- on Windows and Mac, of course. Developer Ronimo Games is not through with the game yet and has prepared a brand new character for you all happy people.
During a special TwitchTV livestream yesterday, the devs pulled the lid back on Ayla, the spunky devil girl who can encase herself in a massive psychokinetic rage sphere for heavy close-range damage. And who voices the young lass? None other than Ashly Burch (mistakenly credited as "Ashly Durst") from Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? Ash already has experience portraying clinically insane children, like Tiny Tina in Borderlands 2, so this role is the perfect fit for her.
You can catch the first part of the livestream above, while the rest can be found over here.

Matt Thorson, creator of some of the best indie games out there, has just released a new trailer for his upcoming OUYA game, TowerFall. Looking to capture the same intensity of late night local multiplayer play sessions as Smash Bros. or GoldenEye, it's an "Archery Platformer" that has you competing with up to three of your friends for victory in a deathmatch arena.
Arrows will slightly home in on opponents, but you need to be careful because ammo is limited. There are also treasure chests containing powerups around the map, which are no doubt going to be highly contested. It seems like a really intense and enjoyable experience, though it is temporarily exclusive to the OUYA. Mr. Thorson has said he wants to bring it to the PC, so us non-OUYA users will just have to wait.
Every time there's some kind of event happening relevant to me and I choose to post about it, I get, "Waaah, we're Europeans," or, "Waaah, there's more to the Earth than just America." And you know what? You're right. Which is why I'm not going to make any mention of this weekend being some kind of holiday. Not doing it.
What this weekend truly represents is an opportunity for you to hang out with us over at Dtoid TV. It kicks off right now as Jordan and I leap into New Super Mario Bros. Wii for some madcap local multiplayer.
As many fans of the series already know, Arrested Development has been revived by Netflix for a fourth season, which is set to premiere this Sunday. To celebrate, Microsoft is allowing those with an Xbox Live Free Membership to access the Netflix app on Xbox Live.
The app will be accessible to those who have a Netflix subscription in the following countries this weekend: U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Brazil, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Chile, Colombia and Argentina.
Anyone here anticipating season four?
Microsoft, by way of mouthpiece Major Nelson, has criticized reports on its Xbox One used game policy as "inaccurate and incomplete," seeming to miss the fact they're based entirely on Microsoft's own statements -- which have themselves been inaccurate and far, far from complete.
"The ability to trade in and resell games is important to gamers and to Xbox," said Nelson, vaguely. "Xbox One is designed to support the trade in and resale of games. Reports about our policies for trade in and resale are inaccurate and incomplete. We will disclose more information in the near future."
Reports are inaccurate and incomplete? Whose fault is that, Microsoft? In the days following the Xbox One reveal, Microsoft's representatives have floundered and flustered, seeming to lack a unified statement for a topic an idiot should've known would come up. The company's been contradictory and noncommittal for days -- of course reports are going to reflect that.
Nelson's statement absolutely does not help, either. These ambiguous non-comments are just adding to the obfuscating noise that has been the past week of quasi-information. Clearing up inaccuracies by saying more of the things that led to any inaccuracy isn't exactly a way to get an accurate message out there, folks.
I'm shocked Nelson called this a clarification. The only thing it clarifies is that Microsoft has a pathological need to talk directly out of its arsehole.
