Xbox indie fans have something to rejoice about today, as Team Meat, the team of developers responsible for Super Meat Boy told IGN that the game would be released on the Xbox Live Arcade in addition to its release on the Wii.

Super Meat Boy has been in development for about six months now and since it was announced, it was thought the title would be a WiiWare exclusive, something many hardcore platform gamers lamented. However, with today’s announcement, Team Meat has opened their game to a much broader audience which can only be good for Meat Boy.

I’ve been sitting on this news a while, wondering if any of the other major outlets would jump on it. It’s about a new game. The name?

Dudebro, My Sh*t Is F*cked Up So I Got To Shoot/Slice You II: It’s Straight-Up Dawg Time.

Let that name sink in a moment. Ready? Let’s continue.

Dubebro II is the freshman project by Grimoire Assembly Forge, a collection of a hundred or so NeoGAF volunteers who have come together to turn an in-joke into an actual game. The story behind its inception is the stuff of Internet legends; if you want all the details, I suggest sifting through the game’s wiki at your leisure.

The Indie Love Bundle
By: | February 14th, 2010

There’s nothing like getting something for a great price, and this Valentine’s Day, you can pick up a set of great indie games for only $20. The Indie Love Bundle is a collaboration between indie game developers to bring their best titles to the masses on this day of love, for pretty damn cheap.

Titles include And Yet It Moves, Auditorium, Aztaka, Eufloria, and Machinarium. If purchases separately, all five titles would cost you over $85, so its really a no brainer, especially if you love indie games.

If you’re a 360 gamer who was looking forward to Trine, it looks like you’ll have to get your fix on the PC or PS3 platforms. The high detailed 2D puzzle-platformer was scheduled to be released last year, but that date has come and gone and the XBLA has seen neither hide nor hair of Trine. Joel Kinnunen of Frozenbyte recently stated on the company forums, “It’s out of our hands but most likely will not happen. Sorry. (We probably won’t comment on this any further.)”

One has to wonder with a statement like that, just why the game won’t be released on 360. If the game was developed enough to be released, perhaps licensing issues or other problems prevented the release. Joystiq contacted Microsoft for a statement, but it seems they’ve refused to shed any light on the cancellation as well.

Today indie developer Taleworlds released a new developer diary discussing the multiplayer aspect of the upcoming medieval warfare simulator Mount & Blade: Warband.

According to the video, Warband features sixty-four player multiplayer with various game modes including deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the flag. One of the more interesting game modes discussed is the ‘Siege’ mode. Here players are split into two teams, one defending a castle, the other attempting to siege it. By utilizing ladders, battering rams, and siege towers, players must fight their way into a castle and slay all the enemies in it. Read more… »

When Foreign Legion: Buckets of Blood (FL:BoB) made its debut back in August, the game was nothing more than a 10 minute level with multiple difficulties.  While the violent cartoon-style graphics, combined with an in-game evolving soundtrack, were alluring, the game was way too short and simple to warrant a price tag.  But despite it all, payers saw potential in the game.

Fast forward to mid December, Sakari Indie has made good on their promise and has delivered a much needed update.  The game now consists of five additional levels, a secret stage, a bevy of unlockable weapons, and multiple items to accessorize your character.  But with another major update in the near future, including a multiplayer mode, how does the game stack up in comparison to its debut?

Gamer Limit Review: Zero Gear

When you think of competitive kart racing games, Mario Kart is the main franchise that comes to mind, with several iterations on all number of Nintendo systems. However, developer Nimblebit is hoping to shake up the kart racing genre with their first offering for the PC, Zero Gear.

It’s hard not to draw parallels to Mario Kart when speaking of a kart racing game, and Zero Gear stays true to the style, offering numerous weapons to use against your opponents in an effort to score an underhanded win.

Gamer Limit Review: Toki Tori
By: | February 7th, 2010

Toki Tori was originally released in 2001 on the dying Game Boy Color system. While it didn’t see much success on the platform, mostly due to the growing popularity of the Game Boy Advance, it was a fun little platformer with unique charm, and those who played it seemed to really enjoy it.

Fast forward to 2010 and Toki Tori is back, this time invading Steam and offering up the same puzzling gameplay fans of the original release will love. You might have already played the game on your iPhone or your Wii, as it was released in 2009 for these platforms. However, the new release on Steam brings 31 achievements into the mix, along with Steam cloud and controller support.

It has been known for some time that a non-profit, fan created 3D remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is in the works.  While this is a long and difficult process, “MithosKuu” (the person behind the remake) has been keeping a running blog of the games progress, and things are starting to come together.

As of this past Monday, the finishing touches were going in to what Mithos believed to be the final house interior. Read more… »

Gamer Limit Review: Emberwind
By: | January 20th, 2010

Emberwind

Emberwind is an adorable game, that much is certain. It seems to pay homage to the multitude of platformers many of us played all those years ago when consoles didn’t know what HD was, when you knew what console was better because of how many bits it had, and when blast processing seemed like a neat idea. This feeling of nostalgia is sullied by the fact that you play a gnome.

If, unlike me, you are able to look past the fact that you play a gnome, then hit the jump to find out the other non-gnome related aspects of Emberwind.

Aaaaa

For this review we’re taking a look at a game that utilizes hugs and kisses as a scoring mechanic, but don’t worry, it’s not a cuddly Wii game.

If you’re so extreme that you drink Pepsi Max and have music that goes all the way up to 11, then jumping off a very tall building may very well be the next step for you.

Virtually, of course.

larvamortus

In today’s world of 3D graphics and ultra-realistic textures, small 2D gems often go unnoticed and unloved, all because, graphically, they can’t compete with technology as it chugs along. However, thanks to XBLA, PSN, and WiiWare, we’re seeing a resurgence of gamers who are just fine with 2D titles and, dare I say, enjoy them just as much as their modern counterparts.

Larva Mortus is a 2D top-down shooter that is reminiscent of the original Grand Theft Auto titles – only instead of jacking cars and running over pedestrians, you’re equipped with a really huge sword and your trusty six shooter in order to take down all manner of baddies, from zombies to werewolves.
