Torture Porn

Super Meat boy was never on my radar till I watched Brad's Quicklook on GiantBomb.com. I, like many others, am a fan of Super Mario Brothers and all other 2D platformers that control very well. So after watching the quicklook, I spent the $10 early purchase fee. The first couple of stages are a tutorial and can be slightly deceiving in the difficulty department. Its not until you get 8 or 9 levels in, does it ramp up the difficulty. I have been a gamer for nearly 30 years. And during that time, I have played stupidly frustrating games that caused me to angrily quit, sell and move on. Being a seasoned gamer taught me a bit of patience recently. So when I popped in Super Meat Boy, I was ready for frustratingly fun adventure. Very rarely do I devote so much time to completing a game. Super Meat Boy had me playing, dying and competing with Brad and friends to complete each level. When i finally beat the game, I screamed victory and had to tell everyone I know about my accomplishment. Upon completing I received the Super Meat Boy Avatar Prop for XBOX live. I consider it highly prized trophy for my hard work.

If you love a great challenge and aren't afraid to get bloody in the process, I highly recommend SUPER MEAT BOY!

    The beauty is when all those botched jumps pay off... 0

     Dr Fetus strikes again Super Meat Boy pays homage to old-skool gaming in many ways, but unlike many tribute acts, it isn’t a one-trick-pony that tries to dig in with the hooks of nostalgia. The steady stream of gaming references gives this hardcore platform game bags of charm, yet it plays and feels like a modern and full-featured product. The titular hero – a cube of meat that tracks blood everywhere he treads – is in love with Bandage Girl. Unfortunately, the dastardly Dr Fetus hates Meat Boy...
