Monday Mind Teasers: Epsilon [Update]

Did you survive the last mind teaser with your brain intact? Good! Because it's time to put your head to good use again with this temporal puzzle game.

If you even remotely enjoyed Portal, then this is a flash game you definitely need to try. The slick metallic and plasma graphics are spot on, and the electrical gameplay is every bit as fulfilling as you'd hope by looking at the picture above. Toss in some really pleasing sound effects and you've got something that's hard to stop playing.

I was going to be completely okay if it was just a Portal clone, but it actually adds in an alternate dimension time reversing gameplay mechanic that fits in so well that you start to actually wonder if it will be a part of Portal 2. Then comes the gravity altering feature and I was convinced this game is worth sharing after playing only a few levels, which is rare for me to do with these mind teasers.

Right now I'm enjoying the wormhole gameplay action and wondering what it will throw at me next. The only complaint I can think of so far is that I hope it's much more challenging later on. You can play EON's game Epsilon here on Newgrounds, via Dissolute Productions.

Update: I just beat it and I have to say that's the coolest ending to any flash game I can remember playing. Awesome Portal-worthy ending, followed by some visuals I didn't know flash was capable of, followed by a kickass looping techno music beat. You all need to play this game. I'm definitely going to pilfer through all of his music now.

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=http://imgur.com/3yw3G8S][img]http://i.imgur.com/3yw3G8S.jpg[/img][/url]

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!
