Braid is nothing short of a masterpiece.

Some of the gameplay mechanics in that game are absolutely and totally original, which is rarely seen. Also, the fantastic art style just about makes it the best looking game ever made, that I genuinely believe.

Not to mention the brilliant music, story, and general level design.

The only downsides are some of the puzzles boil down to trial and error frustration, and there is no walk animation, only a running one, making admiring the scenery more difficult than it could be.

Despite it's higher price of 1,200 points (about 10), no gamer should deprive themselves of such perfection.

Yet more proof that games can be as artistic, beautiful, and ingenious as any other form of media.

Castle Crashers is out and it is totally RAD! It's an old school beat 'em up, with RPG elements. The game doesn't get stale because you're always finding more weapon, getting more moves, and finding little animal friends. The 4-player online works really well, i had no lag. There is a wide verity of enemies to kill and the environment is always changing.

My only complaints are, in multiplayer games the action can get pretty crazy and it's easy to loose you guy in all the chaos,and some of the art in the foreground can block the action and hide enemies.

Those complaints are minor and everyone should get this game now.

Check out the new game called Monday night combat. Its a complete blast, its the off spring of what would happen if Team fortress two and DOTA had a child together. That is seriously the best way to describe it. Third person dota with TF2 class's and upgradable ability. And of course it has online multiplayer, check it out.

I got this game too! I couldn't agree with Gorman more. If you are not sure, the trial gives you complete access to the game with a 30 day timer. I was convinced enough on the first play.

Crossfire is the best mode.

Actually its 30 minutes after which you can no longer play the multiplayer portion of the trial, that said it leaves you yearning for more immediately. Ill probably head out to the bank Monday and make a deposit so I can buy this, its impressed me more then many full games this year.
