ooow indie reviews...i should keep up with this.
" @Unknown_Pleasures: I have the trial for Aphelion, yet to check it out though. And I've heard decent things about the Decay games, but there are several games I'd like to check out before Decay. "I think the Decay series is a little to pretentious but good nonetheless....also with so many indie games now costing 240-400 points it gets too fucking expensive to play a lot of them. I only buy the ones that I'm REALLY interested in.
Get Aphelion....its one of the few 240 point Indie games that's actually worth the full 240 points....its a pretty deep RPG for the price.
Edit: Decay Part 1 and 2 are also pretty cool but are major rip-offs at 240 points a piece considering each "part" only takes like 15-20 minutes to complete and the puzzles really aren't that hard....but it has a great atmosphere and is genuinely scary.
Wow, 30 reviews in 30 days. I tried the same thing with movies. Long story short, I gave up after like a week. :P
This game sounds alright though, especially for the price.
It sucks that I can't play any of these games. I actually kind of want to play this game, if only for said music. Anyway, great stuff!^^ I look forward to all your future reviews ;)
this lasted 3 minutes
As a result of my semi-fanaticism for Xbox Live Indie Games, I've decided to try and review an Indie Game a day for the next month or so. Now I'm sure there will be times when I'm not able to review a game, but I will try my best to stay on top of it. I have 32 indie games at the moment, and am constantly expanding my library, so there's no shortage of games. I just thought this would be a fun experiment, and it would be great to get the word out about some of the lesser known gems on the Marketplace.
So for today, I'll check out Star Crisis, a side-scrolling shooter from Excalibur Studios.
