This game looks EPIC! Wasn't the GB crew talking on the podcast at some point about how some game needs to have a kill screen in it? Well, that's the closest I've seen, so fuck yeah Super Meat Boy. I will definitely buy this, looks like just my kind of platforming with cool music and jokes thrown in.
 
Sorry Brad, but I practically fell out of my chair laughing every time you would say "I've got this" and die in the first second or two.

Woah, 50 minute Quick Look goodness. I love it when Brad entered the Bonus level randomly and then tried desperately to get back. His frustration but enjoyment is evident. I definitely want to play this game.

Anyone else think this looks a little "I wanna be the guy" or whatever that crazy hard platformer was called?

50 Minutes!? 
 
Knowing the flash game, that should be enough time to show three levels or so.

Anyone heard of the Jumper series?  It's a handful of platformers designed by Matt Thorson in Game Maker.  It's probably only known within the Game Maker community, but the resemblance to Super Meat Boy is uncanny.  Both are wicked hard platformers starring small square guys with short legs, and you do wall jumps, avoid midair obstacles, and try not to fall in spikes.

I loved this game on the PC, will probably love it for the Xbox. I enjoy punishing games like Trials HD.

"Watchin' you die is priceless."
-Vinny Caravella
 
This game looks unhealthy. It's "I Wanna Be the Guy" made for mass consumption and that's just dangerous. I love the style, the music, and all the little nods to games past... but dude. The amount of self-hate generated from millions of failures seems to outweigh the price of admission.
 
We finally have a game that makes Brad curse as much as Ryan Davis.
