Limbo is often compared to a title we mentioned early in our Indie Games feature, Braid. It makes sense. Both are puzzle/platformers that were originally released for Xbox Live Arcade. Both have a unique look and feel to them and both feature some amazing audio work. Sure, sounds pretty similar. In reality, the games couldn’t be any more different. Anthony said in his take on Braid that Braid is “about thinking”. Well, if Braid is about thinking, then Limbo is about feeling.
A new Fire Pro Wrestling game has been announced. Fans of the series and the genre went nuts at the announcement. And then… it was rumored and confirmed that it would be entirely avatar based. That is to say, not giant Smurf wrestling, but giant-headed Xbox people wrestling. I tried, really hard, to keep an open mind. I didn’t want to be one of those gamers on the internet who immediately expresses revulsion at something because it’s different. I try to embrace change.
