Recently on Offworld: Elite turns 25, Left 4 Teletubbies, Indies Invade Austin

With the launch of Retro Remakes on Offworld, we started a straw poll to ask: what’s the one remake you’d most like to see appear on consoles or handhelds, with the results to be tabulated and published at the end of the week. We also read the latest official response on the disappearance of an Xbox Live Arcade version of N64 classic Goldeneye 007, and celebrated the 25th anniversary of UK space-exploration legend Elite (above) with developer Frontier.

Elsewhere we put together a high-res gallery documenting Indies Invading Austin — the two days of the inaugural Indie Games Summit at GDC Austin — and began rounding up the reasons why you should be attending LA’s Oct. 1-4 Indiecade conference/exhibition, with appearances by Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi, former MIT games head Henry Jenkins, and flOw/Flower creator Jenova Chen.

Finally, we saw the horrific visage of the Teletubbies invading Left 4 Dead, watched an epic fan-made video of game characters invading Earth, Cloverfield-style, and our ‘one shot’s: Spacesick’s awesomely designed Game Buddy, and the cranio-facial reconstruction of what your head looks like after too much Tetris.
