Dimensions recaptures enough of Geometry Wars' thrills to stand as the best new dual-joystick shooter in quite a while.
The little mushroom man finally gets his name on the marquee, and the result is a charming, unique, and puzzle-heavy adventure.
Nintendo's all-stars assemble once again, resulting in one of the best reasons to own a Wii U (and eight GameCube controllers).
I figured, why not post this here for old times' sake.
I. Don't. Understand.
I don't want to come off as mean, but I think the belief that all Indie games suck is a bit naive and close-minded. There may be a lot of crap on XBL Indie Games, but there are some really awesome games on there as well. MS just doesn't do a good job of sorting them, promoting them, or basically do anything for them at all. There's a Breakout clone that only costs $1 that is a lot of fun...I find it to be a much better value than the Arkanoid game that was released on XBLA for $10.
Pixelated Sausage (dot com) has recently upped the coverage of XBL Indie games on site; these titles have received their own dedicated page. The reason for this is because I feel that there aren’t enough sites that cover XBL Indies and these games could use as much promotion as they can get.
As these reviews/previews start rolling in I plan to feature at least one game every day (likely won't last). These “reviews” will only be a few paragraphs in length and may have accompanying videos as well. Each review will also state whether the impressions are from the trial version or the full game (I would love to purchase every game I review, but I'm not rich).
I hope these reviews help both the sausage and the sales of the XBL Indie games we cover. I may be doing the bulk of coverage for these titles, but hopefully my fellow writers will help out when they can as well. Check out all the XBL Indies coverage HERE.
From the twitter of Ryan Davis himself..."note to people with opinions on our day 2 podcast: we get it. you loved/hated it. moving on!"...Maybe you guys should listen to the man and move on already. This is absolutely ridiculous and I can't believe people are still complaining about this.
How about we all stop talking negatively about the female guest already...I'm sure you can all find something much better to do with your time. This is all completely ridiculous.
