Xbox Live Indie Game Review - Nasty

xboxboxartThis game plays a lot like Contra, minus the bullet hell of course. Although maybe it changes later in the game (I've managed to get to stage 83 so far). It's a simple single screen puzzle/action type of game. To open the door to get to the next level, you kill all the enemies. And it's definitely fun .... in short bursts.


Xbox Live Indie Game Review - Clock 24-7

xboxboxartYes, I bought this. I've actually had the trial sitting there waiting for the price to change from 200 to 80 points because I honestly couldn't see it going up. Why? Because I wear prescription glasses and on the rare times I do manage to sleep well, I sleep like a rock.


Xbox Live Indie Game Trial Impression - A Bomb’s Way

xboxboxartThe description for this says "Introducing a new character with a very short fuse!" and they aren't lying. That's really the only thing that hurts this game, because it's pretty good otherwise.


Xbox Live Indie Game Review - Angry Barry

xboxboxartI have expressed the fact that the Data East game Bad Dudes is one of my favorite classic games of all time.  And this game is almost like a step up from that. And it's weird, because this game is from the same guys who made Adventurer Pets HD ... and I can't even get through the TRIAL of that particular game without just shuddering due to the fact it's complete crap because of slow pacing and floaty controls.


The XBLIG Vibrate Series Part 6 : Trial Impression of - Shiatsu Massage

xboxboxartThis comes from the creator of Cocktail Paradise, and much like that particular app ... for me this one still falls into the "useless" category ... but damn. If I was into this stuff, this would definitely be the one I'd get.


First Impression of the Xbox Live Indie Game Alien Encounters : Attack on Xa-Tam

xboxboxartFor the past hour or so I've been in a multiplayer game, and it's actually a hell of a lot of fun. Especially the overly cheesy death animations (they throw their arms into the air like "OOOOOOH!!!" then slowly fall over). It's decently paced and plays just fine. I can't really talk about the multiplayer level design all that much because I've only been playing on one map out of the 16 or 17 so far. Dammit. Don't do in expecing Halo, Gears of War of Call of Duty out of a $3 game of course. But for what it is, it is a hell of a lot of fun. And this is coming from someone who isn't all that wild and about console first person shooters. The single player leaves much to be desired ... but I'm only on level 3 of the single player so far so I'm not gonna comment too much on that. But yeah, definitely get this. It's not perfect, but considering it's just 240 points, for what it is it's a lot of fun multiplayer. Something I wish it had though was Free for All. Right now it's just teams ... which I'm not used to at all. When I first got into the game I was just shooting everything that moves because that what I'm used to, so there IS friendly fire here. :P But give it a shot, hit me up on Xbox Live if you wanna play a game.


It Came from Netflix - Deadgirl

DeadGirlI'm all the time going through the Netflix Instant Watch on the Xbox 360 for stuff to watch, I probably have a queue that's the better part of a hundred movies.  I originally saw the boxart to this (which is a little different than what's shown) and thought "Ok, maybe it'll be a Ju-on style movie ..." because I love those movies. I couldn't have been more wrong, though that isn't a bad thing.

Xbox Live Indie Game Trial Impression - SpaceAttack

xboxboxartIt's a perfectly serviceable Asteroids clone. I mean, there isn't much else to say.


Xbox Live Indie Game Review - Criminals Under Arrest

xboxboxartThis is the kind of beat 'em up I like. It doesn't try to reinvent the way the games are played, the fighting mechanic works and it works well. And there are a fair amount of combos you can pull off.
