The Gunstringer developer as been bought by Microsoft and becomes part of Microsoft Studios Family. So Kinect games from now on then.

Smart move by Microsoft, they need more 1st party developers. Article!

Sequels and more sequels

That makes sense considering that almost all their games have been XBLM exclusives.

If it means they'll only make Kinect games, then this sucks.

Just wrote about three paragraphs about why I don't think any Twisted Pixel games are very good but decided against posting that. Not really in the spirit of the article!

Good for them, I suppose! Seems like it was inevitable, what with their Microsoft leanings so far. Let's hope Microsoft allow them to flourish and be innovative!

You see, I think a lot of people would say that they have had really good games (maybe except Comic Jumper). I just think PERSONALLY think that The Maw is terrible and Gunstringer was pretty frustrating/painfully unfunny. I liked 'Spolsion Man! Still, the public at large love their output (a lot of people find it HILARIOUS at least), so this could be a good thing.
