Stuck in Limbo

July 16, 2010

Finally! Limbo is out next week on XBLA for 1,200 MS Points but I managed to cheekily nab a code for review. Without going into too much detail (delicious Monday Embargo) the game is shaping up very well. It’s different but familiar. It’s frightening and subtle. It’s god damn exciting and it’s also one of the most interesting XBLA games you’ll play this year. So, make sure you check out the first twenty minutes via Giant Bomb’s Quick Look.

Oh yeah! Limbo is part of Xbox’s 2010 Summer of Arcade. Which means if you buy all five of the listed games you’ll get 1,200 MS Points back. I’d recommend you pick up Limbo and Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light (August 18th). Check the link for more details.

In other news I’m trading in my trusty super elite and joining the slim family. While I’m not a fan of the Xbox’s new shiny look – matte is where it’s at – I’m excited for a quieter, smaller and more streamlined machine. Pictures, blogs and excited pictures of my face will be up soon, so keep an eye out.

    I simply cannot wait for this game. I love interesting releases like this that step away from the norm. Similar to how Braid was. Roll on next Wednesday!

    If I get money for points I’ll probably pick up Limbo. 🙂

    Tomb Raider looks fun, but I don’t have anybody to play with so I’ll probably skip that. 😦
