If someone came up to me and said: "Chad, I have a game for you that is like a mixture of Super Metroid, Emperor's New Groove, Ikaruga, and Final Fight!" I would probably punch them in the face, flail my arms in the air, and break through the wall in a fit of confusion and excitement.

But indie developer DrinkBox's Guacamelee! is exactly that! It is a 2D action/adventure just like Super Metroid, it has a similar look and style to Disney's underrated Emperor's New Groove, there is a strange, yet cool dual-world mechanic like Ikaruga, and it is a surprisingly deep beat-em-up with co-op like Final Fight. Whew!

We have written a lot about Guacamelee! on the site already, so you can check out one of our recent previews right here to get an idea of how everything works and plays (summary: It's great!). Since Super Metroid is one of my favorite games of all time, I just had to chime in with a few thoughts on how awesome this upcoming game is. Definitely keep your eyes open for this one when it hits PSN (and maybe other platforms?) in 2013.

Oh, and sorry again to the PAX guys for that Chad-shaped hole in the side of the convention center. Oops.

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

February's Xbox One Games with Gold is already out

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
