Xbox Live Indie Game Reviews

I played some of the newest indie games on the Xbox Live market place and this is what I thought about em.

Cow Catch - Garbage. Don't even waste your time looking at it.

Monsters Swimming - The sounds in the game can get pretty annoying and the controls are kinda crappy. I wouldn't recommend it but if for some reason it looks appealing to you then go ahead I guess.

Origin X - It's some kind of space exploration RTS game. It's rather slow and boring for an RTS and I didn't see any point to the game. I was able to build turrets but I was never attacked or anything. I wouldn't recommend playing it unless you're really into RTS games.

Shield the Beat - I found his game a bit interesting. You are a ship in space without weapons, but you are under attack, and you have to block the attacks with a shield. A song is playing and the attacks from the other ships are in sync with the music. The game is 400 Microsoft points though, so I don't think it's worth the cost, but I'd say at least check it out.

Shifters - This racing game has surprisingly good graphics for an indie game. You don't have control of steering though. The camera is stuck to the side of the car, and you just control the throttle, the clutch, and shifting. It's worth checking out, but I don't now about buying.

Swamp Defense - It's just another boring tower defense game. I'd say don't waste your time but if you really want to play a tower defense game go play a good one like Bloons or Gemcraft.

Retrocade: DataStream Y2K600 - This game makes absolutely no sense. Don't waste your time.

Thanks for checking out my blog. I think I might keep doing reviews of indie games, let me know what you guys think. Thanks.

Morrowind Overhaul

Someone put together a pretty nice mod for TES: Morrowind that makes the game look amazing. If you play Morrowind, I would recommend checking it out.

Drunk Tank podcasts

Never fail to be entertaining. If you don't recognize the name Drunk Tank then you might now em as Roosterteeth, or the guys who made Red vs Blue. They recently did a video podcast (as opposed to their normal audio podcasts) Even if you don't watch, it's something nice to just listen to while you're doing other things on your computer.

Video game releases this year

Are going to be amazing. I'm excited for Battlefield 3, Saints Row 3, and most of all, TES: Skyrim.

They released a pretty funny teaser for Saints Row 3 a couple days ago.
